Personally a MX518 user, but I have played DotA highly competetively/professionally (some small sponsorship, played in Div2 but often with Div1 players).

Been playing TFC (very fast paced HL1 mod) for the past 8 years. I use high sensitivity, printer paper for a mouse pad, and the MX518. Great mouse.

Been playing CS1.6 for years. I thought the MX518 mouse was the end all for mice (I see many in here are attracted to them as well) but after my mouse wore out I decided to try the G15 (two side button type). I was impressed by the build quality and liked the new mouse, you can match the weight to the MX518 and the standard feet on the mouse worked better on my icemat than the mx518

Used to play for about 5 years with a MX510 and bought another one when I thought I needed a fresh start. Then I tried out a Lachesis and another Razer mouse but very fast went back to a MX518. Setpoint software that comes with it is solid but I miss an adjustable polling rate. At default the MX518 works at 125mhz and to me its a big difference upping it to 500mhz. Theres a really nice tool that increases the polling rate to 1000mhz max. A must have imo.

Deathadder forever.. until the Mamba comes out . No other company has a feature as useful as Razer's on the fly sensitivity change.

Issue with Wireless: Waves travel faster in Solids than in Air. So Wireless Mouse will always have a Slower Response Rate.
You do know that wireless and bluetooth use microwaves right? That's electromagnetic radiation... They don't travel through mediums. Wireless technology isn't limited by the speed of the wave (it travels at the speed of light btw), its limited by the amount of data that can be encoded in the wave and the distance over which the wave can be received as well as interference from other electromagnetic radiation which adds noise to the wave making it harder to decode.

Also, electromagnetic waves actually travel slower through solids.

I use a MX518, which I got after my MX510's right mouse button stopped clicking. When I game (rarely now) I actually hold it with a sort of mix of the claw and palm grip, and the design works well for this unconventional grip. The adjustable sensitivity is very useful when sniping! You know how some games have a built-in shakiness when you use a scope, going down to the lowest dpi really counteracts this!

wireless devices have slower response due to additional processing required by the receiver chip to decode the input.


ya that statement was technically wrong.. i ll correct it.

I used to play "America's Army" on my Macbook with the trackpad.

I was pretty good at it. Then they got rid of the Mac version

Lol ouch. Mac never gets any love when it comes to pc games. At least you still have WoW...

I have the G5 and the MX518 and the G5 when balanced, (if you don't balance it then your a fool) seems to glide more smoothly and has more weight to it in general, making it easier to pin point exactly where you want the pointer to go. Flip side of this is because of the added weight the G5 is more tiresome for day to day use. As for wireless, I bought the G5 because the battery in my MX1000 made the mouse too heavy for gaming and it seems to me that having the adjustable weight is a better feature than wireless.

iriverdude, if you ever play any shooting games then using the "DPI" button can come in handy if you have a chance to do long range targeting like you can with Farcry when zooming with a scope.

I wish someone would develop a mouse that really does fill the palm so we could move away from fingertip mousing. They all claim to be ergonomic but that is with your fingertips past the pressure point for the left and right keys, this causes you to float your hand instead of letting it rest on the mouse.

I've played most of the FPS games, seem to cope fine in sniping mode in default middle DPI LED. Never used the Logitech "Advanced Game Settings" either
