Wow this is an old school mouse. I just threw out the wireless version (G7 I believe) that came with 2 batteries and a charging station in the receiver so you could swap the batteries when they died.

Great mouse. No RGB. Has every feature you would want in a gaming mouse except it doesn't look like a transformer.

I don't love their software but it is what it is.

For $20 I would buy a second.

I wish MS still made the intellimouse optical. Frown the remakes are based off of the explorer and the optical ones on ebay are always either from China (ie probably fakes) or they cost well over $100.
They still make it

Oh the memories. Probably the best mouse I ever had. It just "fit" my hand perfectly. I wish they would make a wireless version of this. Its hard to go back to using a corded mouse

Think I will pick this one up to try as a potential backup from my old school Logitech G5 Laser Mouse that I am still using. (I can't believe people are selling used ones for hundreds of dollars - eg https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000AY5YI4/)
Still using my G5 too from 2008, including full time for work!

Wow. I bought this mouse full price and don't regret it for a second. I had the original mx518 and I loved the shape/weight/tracking. This one improves on the tracking but leaves the rest the same. Very happy with it.

I hope this means they aren't discontinuing it.

I still use my original MX 518 from more than a decade ago. There used to be a 3rd party program for it called UberOptions that would let you customize the buttons on it. I was recently trying to get that working again on Windows 10. I did manage to get it working but it was a pain and I'm not confident I'd be able to do so again if I ever have to reinstall in the future.

Once I saw that they have re-released this model and it works out of the box with Logitech's G Hub software, I was sold. I actually grabbed 2 of them at this price.

On a side note, one time long ago my first MX 518 stopped working correctly. Logitech sent me a brand new, in-the-box, retail-ready replacement at no cost and I didn't even have to send back the bad one. That was good customer service. No idea if that would be the case these days. This was back when mice came in larger, fancy packaging. Not just a clamshell case.

I placed an order. My everyday mouse at home has been the original MX518 since December 2010 - nearly 10 full years ago! Just two days ago, I was saying to my significant other that the right-click is starting to act up. I have tried other mice in the last 10 years - recent ones include the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse [logitechg.com] and Razer Viper Ultimate [razer.com] - but none have come close to the MX518. I'd easily pay $120+ for a wireless version of the MX518 if such a mouse were available.

I also had a G5, purchased in April 2007. I can't remember what happened to it, but I replaced it with a MX518 in 2010.

Quote from TommyVersace
:
Would it make a good replacement for the G400s?
The two are similar, with the G400s being a bit wider based on my personal usage. I have been using the G400s in my work office for a few years (before the pandemic, at least).

Logitech still seems to have excellent customer service. Like you, one of my two MX518 mice from 2010 stopped working in 2013; I contacted them and they sent me a brand new G400s, which was their replacement at the time. Just earlier this year, one of my cats got ahold of the tiny USB dongle of my Logitech G Pro mouse, and Logitech sent me a brand new dongle free of charge.

I was also tracking this mouse for months before its release, and I almost bought it when it initially came out in 2019 [venturebeat.com]. The only reason I did not was because I was hoping for a wireless version, and my original MX518 was still working at the time.

Take care,

I'm still using my OG MX518, and Logitech's software allows me to customize all buttons without issue.

It's a proven mouse, ever since CS 1.5 and WOW was brand new.
