This is an excellent gaming mouse. It can be used in either a USB or PS/2 port (unlike some gaming mice which only work in USB slots). The best thing about this mouse is the adjustable dpi levels. You can set up to 5 different speeds to be used in a game, so if you find the max dpi a bit too fast (as I did) you can drop down to any other speed that you have set.
The design of the mouse is also excellent. The buttons are positioned so that you can't accidentally press them mid-game (as I've done with a previous gaming mouse I owned).
Verdict: It's a bit expensive but if you're a heavy FPS gamer then I think this is just about the best mouse you can own. My Counter Strike kills have improved dramatically since I bought this.

First off, i have got to say, this is a right-handed mouse only, the features are designed solely for right handed users. Lefty's look elsewhere...

OVERVIEW_

For me as a buyer, i rarely look at the five-star reviews. in general, they're mindless praise, they're un informative, and not thought out. i like people to give honest opinions on what they've bought, and let me know of what flaws i will run into if i buy this mouse myself. which is what i will fully intend to do, as i continue...

DELIVERY_

my package came well on time, i was kept well informed of when my purchases should arrive, and they came bang in the middle of my three day window and in perfect condition. everything was well padded, i also ordered some PC speakers, so this padding i was very glad to see. i have come to expect knocks on product packaging as the products fumble through various warehouses, thrown onto vans, stacked and restacked as things are eternally moved around. but this was well and trully not the case, both products were like they'd been lifted off the production line.

5/5

ACCESSORIES_

the mouse comes with a drivers CD, a manual, and a usb to PS/2 adapter which is crucial if you have a shortage of USB ports, a case on many older PC's. it worked straight out of the box with no drivers needed. but i installed these just to be on the safe side. There was no bumph or twaddle, just everything you needed to get going.

5/5

APPEARANCE_

this is a silver and black mouse, the dark "spots" you see on the picture, are indeed on the mouse itself, they are not indents or grooves, the surface of the mouse is streamlined and smooth. they just comprise the inner stylings of the mouse.

General info on high dpi mice:
1600dpi isn't needed for gaming. 1200dpi is quite sufficient, though the price on electronics is falling all the time so if you want to treat yourself, then do go for a 1600dpi mouse. At the time of writing, the highest dpi mouse available is 2000dpi. The larger the dpi, the more sensitive the mouse. Low sensitivity of mouse causes it to move unpredicatably and also means it does not work as well upon shiny surfaces. With very low sensitivity mice (ie under 599dpi) you lack control and overshoot your target.
General info on the mouse:
Just over 13cm long, 6.5cm wide, and just over 4.5cm high. Not heavy. Fast response time.
Problems with the mouse:
The biggest issue is whether you will find the mouse comfortable. Logitech mice have quite a large but comfortable hump. If you have small fingers then this is the best gaming-standard mouse available (at time of writing). The only other company who I'd consider buying a gaming-standard mouse from, Razerzone, sell mice which are substantially longer, with less hump. My fingers can not reach to the mouse wheel on Razerzone mice. However, if you have large hands then your little finger is likely to trail on the desk when you use this mouse. There is no groove on the right of the mouse for your little finger to sit on. This is only a problem if you got medium-big fingers (for a guy).
Other considerations:
The Logitech mouse lets you set it's sensitivity to multiples of 50. I normally have it at 1000dpi. I never use the mouse at 1600dpi for two reasons.
Firstly it doesn't cope well with major accelerations at it's maximum dpi. So if I turn rapidly and suddenly it will struggle.

This is a top class gaming mouse with 3 levels of DPI to choose from depending on what task you are doing. It's perfectly smooth for gaming and comfortable to hold, It's far better than it's rival (Razor Diamondback mouse) which tends to go wrong after 6 month's as i and others found out.. i have had my MX518 for 7 month's and it's still working perfectly and im having hours of gaming fun.

I'll sum this mouse up: it's a no-frills mouse that's comfortable to use, has easily accessible buttons on the top and side and is a lot more practical to use in every day applications than my Copperhead. I don't know why this mouse is as expensive as it is, however, as it omits a lot of things that razer mice have at the same price. Particularly when it comes to the quality of the laser, which isn't bad, but I haven't found it as accurate as the copperhead in games. Perhaps it's because of the way I hold the copperhead due to its design, but this mouse isn't as good for gaming. So yeah, I'd give this mouse 8/10.

HOWEVER, this mouse emits a high pitched squeaking sound. Ho ho. You can clearly hear it if you hold it up to your ear, and it seems to come from the front of it. Back at home I didn't have any trouble with it, but up at University, it's a bit like a cave and it reflects back at me. This isn't a problem if you have a headset, or even some music playing, but when I'm trying to type this up I occasionally hear it whirring in the background, depending on where I've got it. And it gets very, very annoying. How much of a problem this is depends the layout of your computer desk, but once you hear it and know what you're listening for, it starts to drive you crazy. I'm 20 and have been to a few nightclubs in my time, but I can still hear it so I'm sure that others will as well.

And finally I'll compare it to the Razer Copperhead, since they're both popular gaming mice and I'd liked to have something like this to read before choosing between the two.

*The Copperhead has a bit at the front to stop the mouse cord from being bent too much near the entrance to the mouse.
