All of these reviews are interesting reading and I am learning a lot from them. One thing is for sure, choosing a mouse will NEVER be the same .

I've received my MX518 just an hour ago will proceed to unboxing and installing it.

BTW, I found this on YouTube this evening

I have three MX518s, and I have yet to find a more comfortable mouse, especially if you have larger sized hands.

I was in a local computer store just looking around and found a Trackman with the ball in the thumb position, it has a scroll wheel, and it connects to my pc via a cable to my USB port. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. I haven't seen one in a pc store for a long time and said that to the sales clerk. He remarked that it was the last one and he has NO IDEA when or if they will be getting another.

People say "sometimes shit happens", but its also true that good things happen too .

Logitech Trackman Wheel? If so thats what I was using up until just recently. I only just replaced it with a Logitech Wireless Trackball M570. The new one is physically identical except it has a couple of extra buttons and is wireless.

I use the Logitech MX518. It is the first time I have gone for anything other than a cheap standard mouse and I do not think I could go back now.

LogiTech, G5 Gaming Mouse & Wave Keyboard
I've not found much information while conducting a search here on LogiTech Drivers. From what I understand LogiTech isn't creating drivers for Windows 7 Beta, should I just use the Vista versions despite getting a Compatiability Message?
