Which one is better?


Logictech MX518 or the Logictech G5?

It is for gaming and I am going to use the razor mousepad.

I heard the G5 has less buttons, and is weird when flicking too fast in a circle or on some pads.

Give me your advice.

Ty.

Well, I would say the G5. If you look through the product specifications, you will see that the G5 offers a 2000 dpi laser engine, which is superior to the MX518's 1600 dpi The G5 also has a couple more features than the MX518, such as the Internet Forward/Back buttons, etc.

I know the G5 is $10 more, but I would suggest it if you play a lot of games.

Okay was wondering, because that is what i decided but ppl were saying that the G5 doesnt track as well as the MX518, and that since the MX518 had more buttons it was better, and what is the difference from optical and laser arent they the same?

Im a very Avid computer gamer, and most of the people in the clans i play in all agree that they love the G5. Probably would be best to go with because of such great reviews and technical specs
