Logitech, a Swiss company known for making computer accessories and devices launched an upgraded gaming mouse named Logitech G MX518. The new mouse is an upgraded version of what was called the best gaming mouse for its price, the MX518 that was launched in 2005. Since then there was no upgrade to this lethal weapon of choice for many gamers, until now. The old mouse has been combined with the G-Series of gaming mouse from Logitech. For the unknown, the G-Series is a range of gaming mice developed by Logitech with more features and is fancier than the other gaming mice launched by the company.
With the launch of Logitech G MX518, the company hopes to upgrade its best-selling gaming mouse ever. The build of the new Logitech G MX518 is same as the old one. It is oval in shape so the gamers can rest their whole palm on the mouse comfortably. Despite of the upgrade it is still a wired mouse. In 2019, wired mice seem like a thing from the past. Nevertheless, there are gamers who play with wired mice as it has better response time than their wireless counterpart. Then there are some which like the wireless mice better. In the end, it all comes down to taste.
The Logitech G MX518 is now powered by 16,000dpi sensor which is similar to what Logitech’s flagship gaming mice have. It also has the HERO 16K Gaming Sensor in it. The company has claimed that the upgraded G MX518 gives a 1ms response time because of its built-in 32-bit ARM processor.
There are eight buttons present on the mouse, which can be customized by the player to suit his or her playing style. Once customised the mouse will store the button configuration in its onboard memory so that when switching computers, the player can play with the same configuration without reconfiguring the buttons.
