This looks very good. Ever since Razer introduced the new Diamondback, there hasnt been anything that would really compete against it, corded or not.

I cant wait to see a few reviews on this. I dont think there is any question that this will be the #1 mouse now. I read alot of people that owned the Razer Dback would love to have it shaped like a Logitech. Now they get their wish.' ">

I'm pretty skeptical about this mouse, it looks oddly the same as the MX510, even the specifications say so...

Logitech MX518' ">,CONTENTID=10121

QUOTE Technical Specifications
Image Processing: 5.8 megapixels/second
Resolution: 1600-dpi native, adjustable to 400- and 800-dpi
Acceleration: 15 g
Throughput: 16 bit/axis USB data format, and 125/sec USB report rate

Now, let's have a look at the MX510...

QUOTE Technical Specifications
Image Processing: 5.8 megapixels/sec
Acceleration: 15g
Resolution: 800 dpi
Speed: 40 inches/sec

The speed and throughput thing confuses me. What does 125/sec mean on the MX518? 125"what" per second?

Maybe this is just some stupid marketing hype...

EDIT: I just checked the flash demo for the MX518, and under the "Extreme Performance" tab it says a maximum speed of 40 inches per second. So, I'm guessing this means it is no better than the MX510?

LOL, I'm in no big hurry to get rid of my MX510, couldn't argue with $30 for it.

i'm happy with my $15 MS optical mouse, thank you very much.
but $30 for a MX510 would work for me
