Here is a test of the Mx 518, if you know German it will perhaps help you: http://www.gamestar.de/tests/eingabegeraet/maus/24782/

and here for the G5: http://www.gamestar.de/tests/eingabegeraet/maus/27756/

The G5 is an improved version of the Mx518, it transmits signals at a higher rate and should logically be better in FPS-games. It does, however, not work very well with certain mousepads (works fine with normal mousepads but not with special gamingpads or glasspads).

Oh, and welcome on the forums :)

I use the mx 518 & I love it, it is quite a bit cheaper & one doesn't need that high a dpi resolution. The mouse goes ALL over the place at 1800. I set at 1500 max.

Ok first i want to thank all off you four your opinions. MrFancypants thank you for the welcoming and for de advice.I don't want to buy the Mx518 because everibody has one, if i buy this one i should do it for the fact that it is better.My "instinct" tells me to go with the G5 because off the laser tehnology and the new Polytetrafluoroethylene gaming feet. If one of you had bouth mice and can make a versus opinion please do so. Once again thank you all

Well i also need to buy a new mouse. I have a nice wireless mouse, but it sucks because the batteries die tooooo quickly. Other than that the mouse is cool but i would proberly go for a wireless that has a long batterie life.
