The MX518 is a very solid mouse. Another good choice you might like is the Razer DeathAdder, which has 3,500 DPI compared to the MX518's 1,800 DPI, and I feel it's a bit more comfortable and natural-feeling.

As for the optical vs. laser debate, they're both excellent for gaming. Optical sensors tend to have somewhat lower DPI ratings, usually below 2,000; however, the DeathAdder is an exception with its 3,500 DPI. On the upside, optical sensors tend to track a bit more smoothly and work on a greater variety of surfaces, soft or hard, which works for some gamers. Lasers usually have higher DPI ratings, generally from 2,000 up to almost 6,000 for the very top of the line. This makes them very precise, but they can be prone to skipping, and they are known to be picky about what surfaces they will track on; they usually work best on hard surfaces (like a plastic or aluminum mouse mat, or a bare desk).

In the long run, both high-sensitivity optical and laser mice are great for gamers.

Here's a photo of the DeathAdder:

You can get it for around $60 or less.

Also, :moved: to the Tech Discussion forum.

This is a good mice, although I am also very fond of this mice, it is a very good and a cute mice. The first mice might not be ideal for gaming, but I think would perform fairly well in maze/cat and mouse sort of games, if that is what you are into. For the second, as the mice looks very friendly and social maybe you could try it in something like second life? If that is the kind of game you need a mice for. I don't really know of a good mice that likes games with guns in it though, I am sorry.

As to how to get them, I am sure you could hire a good mice catcher for maybe 30 or 15 dollars, or you could try contacting the websites that I showed you to see if they still have the mices that they took the pictures of, or if you are really an adventurous spirit and you know where you might fight a good wild gaming mice locally, you can always try your hand at catching your own mice or two. Good luck!

That's not very mice... I mean nice. :D You should consider getting a rat instead. They're pretty much the same as mice, only larger and therefore more awesome. And they live in sewers, which makes them the perfect gamer pet.

Topic: Like Zamamee said, the mx518 is a great mouse. I've had mine for about 4 years and I've never had any issues with it, except the logitech logo is starting to come off and the pads on the bottom are worn down.

If you want a laser mouse I recommend the G5, which is basically the same as the MX518. I recently upgraded my mx518 to this and so far it's been the same good experience I had with the 518. The only noticeable differences (honestly, I don't feel any difference between the optical and the laser) are the rubber surface, which I personally like better than the smooth plastic on the 518 - and the horizontal scroll function (tilting scroll-wheel) which I so far haven't found a single good use for.

You may want to try out a few more mice before choosing. Go down to your local computer store or visit some of your gamer friends and try theirs out. I bought my mx518 simply because it fit my hand better than the other mice I tried.

Happy mouse hunting

Yep, if there's a Best Buy anywhere near your you, you should make a visit; they often have a few samples of Logitech and Razer gaming mice on display for people to get a feel for.

I use the Logitech MX Revolution. It's not labelled as a gaming mouse, but it fits my hand very nicely, and has a rather different shape than most mice. I find this helped me out a lot more in games than DPI switching, or weights, or whatever. For me, it's a tad on the small side though.

It's a very comfortable mouse, but I wouldn't recommend it for gaming considering the wireless input lag, around 8ms. Most wired gaming mice, and even wireless gaming mice like the Razer Mamba, have no more than 1ms input lag.

I have the "old" Deathadder of 1,800DPI, and it's all i ever want. I've used the mx518 for 10 hours at a gaming contest, and it didn't feel half as good, and by then i only had my Deathadder for +-2 days.

I may sound like a fanboy, but you can't go wrong with Razer. :D
