The MX518 Gaming Mouse Is Back In The West Now Too

Posted by at 5:30 pm on February 19, 2019

Logitech today announced the rebirth of one the MX518 Gaming Mouse. First released nearly fourteen years ago, the gaming mouse is loved for its comfortable shape, well-positioned customizable buttons, and high-precision sensor with on-the-fly DPI toggling.

First launch in Asia late last year, Logitech is relaunching the MX518 in Western markets.

“As one of the most-beloved gaming mice ever, MX518 has inspired legions of fans around the world to ask Logitech G to bring it out of retirement. And we heard you. We pulled the original tools from the Vault and meticulously restored them — right down to the original glossy keyplate. It’s the classic, comfortable shape you know and love, now with modern components that perform to today’s advanced standards and a new, updated Nightfall color scheme.”

While the MX518’s exterior remains the mouse’s internals have been updated with the “very latest, next-generation technologies.” The new rodent packs a HERO 16K sensor and a 32-bit ARM processor that gives the new mouse a 1ms report rate. Users will be able to store button layouts and custom DPI settings to the mouse’s onboard memory so it will always perform and operate the way you want even when connected to a gaming rig not running Logitech’s Gaming Software.
