i have the mx1000, its a good accurate mouse and i just use it on the desk with no pad as it reads almost any surface but is heavy, the battery is similar to a mobile phone battery and lasts along time between charges (over a week), a friend has a similar Razer to the one you picked, its light, has no battery as its corded, but i always seem to tangle the cord somehow. As for response time they both feel similar the logitech uses a higher frequency than many other cordless mice and i dont notice any lag compared to the razer.I just find the mx1000 more comfortable if using it for a long time, its quite big, but fits the hand well, the Razer is smaller and feels a bit cramped


Thinking about it.

The MX-510 (which I assume is the same as a 518) is a great mouse. Not too expensive, seemingly perfectly reliable, unbelievably ergonomic (I though a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer was the most ergonomic I'd ever had till I tried this, it's like it was designed specifically for my hand), looks good and has a great number of easy-to-access and often-useful buttons. Plus it's corded, so there are no recharge times or battery replacement requirements -- though make of that what you will; some people won't buy anything with a cord, and others, such as myself, won't buy anything without. Up to you, that one.

For whatever, really. Most mice'll do pretty much anything you want them to, and the accuracy of optical mice is a pretty negligible concern these days seeing as any improvement they say they've made won't even be noticeable to the human eye for the most part. Though, that said, the MX-510/518 is a Logitech, and they consistently have high accuracy/speed ratings anyway, if you're still concerned. So your main concerns will be ease of use and ergonomics, how many buttons they have, whether or not you want a cordless mouse or not, and price, obviously. The MX-510 (or 518, if they're the same) has plenty of buttons to bind to do whatever you want, they're all easy to use and within reach, and the whole mouse feels good in your hand. The only real way to judge ergonomics properly is to get one in your hand and have a play, though. Go to a computer store, they usually have a bunch of mice on display that you can try out for size.

If you want a good gaming mouse just buy any old thing that's reasonably light and turn the sensitivity down.

the Logitech MX518 is the same as the MX510 except its been optimised for gaming. Currently, i have an MX510 and its being a wally, it keeps randomly disconnecting and reconnecting its self. :( Im hoping to get an MX518 soon.

I got an MX510, great mouse compared to my MS mouse. If you are looking for performance, get the razer one. If you want wireless, get the Mx1000. If you want low price(compared to the MX1000 and the razer) get the MX518.
