Logitech MX518

Logitech MX518 - 01

Continuation of Project 955. After 1 month of waiting, motherboard is finally back from warranty. Yeah… I fried my new board last time because there was a leak in the power cable used.

Anyway, I ordered this mouse and shipped along with the board.

It’s not like I’ve fed up with my current mouse, Logitech V120, but as I need to give my laptop to my sister, naturally I have to give the mouse too. By the way, I’ll be using a desktop, so it would be meaningless to use a short cabled laptop optimized mouse.

The packaging is as same as any other logitech packaging for their mouse. A see through packaging with green, white and red color combination.

The back of the package provide more details on the product.

More technical specifications.

The sensitivity is stated to have 1800dpi, but the software provided indicating that the mouse could reach 2000dpi…

have no idea what’s going on here, but I rarely used a mouse with sensitivity set higher than 1200dpi.

The mouse has quite odd in term of color design, especially with the silverish embossed-like finish. However, that’s what so called unique.

Both side of the mouse has sculpted rubber grip which I found is quite comfortable, but not as great as the mouse bundled with MK700 that I tested before.

There’s total of 8 programmable buttons.

“Polytetrafluoroethylene feet” is what stated at Logitech website. Well, I can’t deny that the mouse slided really well if compared with V120.

Side by side comparison with Logitech V120. The size is remarkably larger.

The software provided – Logitech SetPoint. You could set all sorts of command on the buttons.

From here, You could set up to five different sensitivity. You could change the sensitivity by just pressing the button on the mouse.

At first, I was planning to get a G500 or G9x, but the price tag made me to choose MX518 over them. So far, I’m very satisfied with this purchase, MYR90.00, and all those function buttons, exactly what I want.

Including this mouse, I think I own around 4 logitech devices already, and I’m really satisfied with their products.
