I had the original Mx518 and can't remember any downsides to it, but this new one I threw out after a month. The scroll wheel is utter trash, you can't even rely on it to accurately scroll when browsing the web. Within the first week I noticed that when scrolling to the next tactile bump, it sometimes didn't actually register until I wiggled the wheel. I thought maybe it needed to be worn in, but it just got worse. And of course that makes it completely unreliable with gaming, which is its advertised purpose.

I have both the new and old, scroll wheel performs fine and similar on both. Sounds like a defect.
The industry would call it a "remaster."

It's actually a really good gaming mouse. I personally didn't like the glossy texture, but it performs great.

I had a G400, so not an original 518 exactly, but I greatly preferred my old G400 over this new model. Like the poster above, the scroll wheel was a problem for me. So much so, I ended up returning it.

Mine felt off, like it was grinding against something .. just unpleasant to use in general.

I ended up getting a G403 instead -- at least the scroll wheel on this one works (so far, anyway).

Damn, my Wow mouse. I've moved onto the g502 and now the g pro wireless but I sure stood in Ironforge a lot with that mouse doing absolutely nothing.

I've been using the G400s since I got it in 2014, never any issues. Think I might get this because I always liked the look of the original gray.

melty rubber cladding on the plastic was a definite downside.
