If you ask 100 computer enthusiasts for the company that makes the best mice, chances are 99 of them will say Logitech. The company’s products are rugged, well-designed, and most of them are completely affordable. Recently, the company introduced an update to one of the most popular mice on the planet, the MX518 – and its successor looks to be worthy of the title.
If it looks familiar, you’re right – Logitech took the MX518 design and toned down some of the more extreme themes, cladding it in simple, black, high quality plastics. The G400 can go from 400dpi on the low end to 3600dpi on the high end, when utmost precision is required,. The total weight of the mouse is just 4.69 ounces (that’s 133g), and Logitech rates the usable life at 10 million button clicks, or moving the mouse over an equivalent of 155 miles (250km).
Just in case you manage to hit those limits, Logitech does give the mouse a 3-year limited warranty to ease your fears. Since the mouse remains corded, and not wireless, the price stays well within reach at just $49.99. In the unlikely event that your MX518 manages to die off, you can rest easy knowing that there’s a new successor.
