Think it was £16.99 just before Christmas.
Very good mouse.

Very good mouse for the money, only slight niggle is that the coating on the plastic flakes off easily but it has never let me down.

It's been roughly this price for some time I think, such as:

£16.99 4 Weeks ago http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/logitech-mx518-optical-wired-gaming/828277/

£17.99 1 month 4 weeks ago http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/logitech-mx518-optical-wired-gaming/801067

Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing this deal. I own this mouse which I purchased probably over 5 years ago and it's still going strong. Definitely the best mouse I've ever owned, I don't see any reason for purchasing more expensive Razer mice for example. I play a fair number of games including a lot of FPS to, what I would consider (and without trying to sound egotistical), a reasonably high level.

Logitech are great, fantasic customer service. The only reason I don't use a Logitech mouse anymore is the lack of premium options for left handed users.
Still use their keyboards and speakers, but went Steelseries for my mouse.

Fantastic mouse , mine is still going strong after years of service
#10

#11
Can someone tell me if you can change the dpi without a disc?I bought mines from eBay around 6 months ago but it was 2nd hand and didn't come with an installation disc so havnt really used it since I didn't know how to change the dpi sensitivity.
Thanks in advance
#12
i would think you can download the whatever media it came with from logitech website

#13
Yeah, just search for Logitech SetPoint, will install the software that comes on the disc, bboy71.

Great mouse. I didn't pay much more than this a year or two ago though.
#14
There are sensitivity buttons on the mouse itself, no drivers or software required, I use it with my MacBook and it works great.
#15
Fantastic mouse, had mine since 2008 and still works perfect. Tempted to buy another for work.
#16
@espionix
are the buttons your referring to on the top of the mouse?I thought these were assignable for mapping keyboard keys to it.if so how can you tell what dpi you've set it to
thanks
#17
have been using it since it first came out (can't even remember how long ago that was)
the mouse feet had changed in the 2nd gen which is much better than the 1st gen one I had.
If you are looking for a decent entry level gaming mouse. look no further.
#18
I loved mine until the scroll wheel eventually broke. It wouldn't be too much of a bother but it scrolls anything the mouse hovers over up and down rapidly.
#19
Using this right now, excellent mouse! Heat added.

When you install Setpoint you will be able to use them as dpi changers or map them to functions instead (standard buttons)
You should choose your own dpi though, it depends on screen resolution and how you move the mouse.

I centre my cursor on the screen, then adjust dpi until I can comfortably move the pointer to the edges and corners of the screen without moving my hand (i.e. entirely wrist movement). Try drawing X & + type signs across the screen

I tend use a slightly higher/quicker settings on games.

I've not tested it personally, but I have a friend who uses Win7 64bit and the MX518 without any problems.

Logitech SetPoint has x64 support.
#24
Pretty much echoing everybody else here. Even if you did have a problem, they have some of the best customer service I've ever experienced. Highly recommended. Have no fears about buying this. After an opening and a quick clean, mine even survived a hot chocolate bath.:p
#25
Fantastic mouse. Bought mine 4 or 5 years ago, had consistent fairly heavy use since - looks a bit tatty but still works perfectly - comfortable and accurate to use and the ability to change sensitivity with a flick of the finger is brilliant.

A definite steal at this price.
#26
£18 is pretty common but it's a damn good mouse, had mine for over a year and it's just as fast and comfy as day 1

yup used on XP, vista and win7 64bit, works out the box but for more advanced profiles, sensitivity and extra buttons other than back/forward you need the setpoint software which will work on any windows.

Great mouse. I've had my original of these for around 5 years now and it is still going strong. When the price of these came down I bought a second one, and use my old one for work.

Also should add that Logitech customer support has been top rate when I've used it, and that pretty much keeps me very happy to continue buying their products.

Yeah they are either end of the mouse wheel, in addition to one other button which I think is for application switching.

As MBeeching already said, I think you can change the function of these buttons,but I like them for quick DPI switching when in Photoshop for example. I'm not sure what the pre-set values are but it allows 3 preset values of DPI which if i remember correctly you can adjust in the SetPoint application. (I havent used it in years, since I used the mouse on a Windows system).

The Mac application is called Logitech Control Center, and allows pretty similar customisation.
#29
just arrived today from amazon but for 16.99
banned#30
A very good mouse indeed and a bargain at that price.
#31
If this is anything like the G5, grab it
#32
They are better than the G5 :)
Been using 510s and now 518s for as long as I can remember, great mice. Worth installing uberoptions (google it) as well as setpoint, gives you a few more choices as to what you can map the buttons too.

Thanks so much for that, needed to know the name for the mac version. Cheers mate!

According to Camelcamelcamel the cheapest it ever was is £13.50:
http://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/Logitech-MX518-Optical-Gaming-Mouse/product/B0015R8M7U

I had the choice of letting somebody borrow one of my spare gaming mice, G9 or this, I gave them the G9, my MX is too precious. I paid £28 about 3 years ago I think?
#35
Love logitech mice... Have the Mx5500 Revolution Desktop and i wouldnt swop it now <3
#36
I've had this mouse for about four years or so now, initially I bought it for gaming but recently have been using it at work, very comfortable and very responsive, highly recommended!
#37
Looks like the price had settled at £16.99 but was a victim of the VAT round up to the next 99p.
http://www.pricetrace.co.uk/?do=q&store=amazon.co.uk&sku=B0015R8M7U. Difficult to find a bad word about the mouse itself though so is a good deal. That link is from a price trace add on for Chrome for anyone interested.
#38
This > any razer in my opinion. Logitech make good mice
#39

#40
