Logitech MX510 Gaming Mouse 931162-0403 - Most PC games use a mouse as a controller but many of the current mice aren't ready to tackle the advanced technologies and speeds incorporated into the latest action games. In fast-paced first-person shooter games, whether you live or die is decided by the accuracy of quick, sharp mouse movements. By employing 12 bit reporting over standard 8-bit technology, this mouse can be more responsive and agile for critical movements required in more complex, fast-paced PC games. The MX510 is equipped with eight programmable buttons -- the obvious left/right mouse buttons and clickable scroll wheel, complemented by two easy Web navigation thumb buttons (back/forward) and two cruise-control scroll wheels. On the very top of the chassis, you'll also find an application-switch button.

I can't believe no one else has reviewed this mouse yet! I purchased the blue mouse, because well, blue is my favorite color. The MX 510 is fantastic- I love the placement of the buttons, and the auto-scroll buttons are especially handy in those situations where you have a very long document and the wheel button is too annoying to use.
The paint job on this mouse is amazing, no to mention that each paintjob is unique for every mouse. Overall, the mouse is surprisingly large, but it's comfortable and fits my hand well. Great buy!
So, I finally had a chance to test out the mouse. Wow, I used to use an old trackball, and this new one beats the living daylights out of it. It's TOO sensitive; in fact, I had to turn the sensitivity way down in order to shoot more accurately in various FPS games. However, I did not use the side buttons on the mouse for any first person shooter games because these can be hard to reach quickly during intense action moments...
I purchased this mouse in blue to match my Saitek Eclipse keyboard, and I received much more than I expected.
First off, if you have always used a mechanical (ball) mouse, it's time to make the switch to optical. You don't need a mouse pad, it feels smoother, and there are no wheels/gears inside to clog up with grime.
Specific to this optical mouse:
--It has five semi-customizable buttons in addition to the normal buttons. I say "semi" customizable because you can set them only to a couple dozen pre-determined functions, including back, forward, cut, copy, paste, close, double-click, explore computer, find, help, maximize, minimize, minimize all, quick switch (from one application to another), run, start, and undo. You can also set a button to "keystroke," meaning ONE key, or control/alt/shift plus one key.
--Out of the box, the two buttons just above where you sit your thumb are set to browser back and forward, which I find to be quite...
This is an excellent gaming mouse, along with photo-editing mouse. Anything that you need to be very exact with, or have a bunch of extra buttons that don't get in the way, this is the perfect mouse. It's a bit out-dated now with the MX518 costing about the same and having a higher resolution (I have both), but the only reason I had to upgrade mine was because I wore it out. It took a good six years or better to wear through this beast.
As an ex-semi-pro gamer, and as a semi-professional photoshop user, I wholeheartedly recommend this. Once you use it, you'll never go back to a regular mouse. I never get cramps from using it, nor do I ever accidentally hit the extra side-mouse buttons. It's a great gaming mouse for any type of game (I use it for Counter-Strike and World of Warcraft).
If you just plan on browsing the web, it's quite a bit more than you need.
