    Was easy, pop here there. And put on the 518.

    Why did change the mouse shells? Because the 518 originaly was my SISTER's!
    I bought the 510 for me, then she bought the 518.. I couldn't let 1600dpi go to waste could I (that I don't use that offen.. most of the time its on 800dpi)
    So you swapped the insides of each others mice? Thats just low man, real low. If I knew a way to contact her, I'd tell her what you did, just to get you in trouble.

    I paid roughly $80-90 for mine, but believe me when I say the difference between one of these and a cheap $20 mouse is fucking colossal. I remember when I first changed from a ball to an optical mouse, the difference is as clear as night and day. And then when I changed from a crappy optical mouse to my Mx518, again the difference in quality was huge. Seriously, its OK to splash out on a mouse (you don't need 20 million buttons, but a good optical preferably with multiple DPIs, will make a world of difference). You can get away with a crappy keyboard, but its always best to spend just that bit more on a good mouse.

    Agreed. $100 on an awesome quality mouse that is going to last you quite a few years is a good deal, to me. Why not, when computers cost thousands of dollars anyway?

    I acknowledge that my old 25$ "optical mouse 3000" (sounds like a harry potter thing) is not great ergonomics wise and I wish I chose something else because of that, but its precision is more than enough for me :P
    Now if I had 100$ to lose I would consider buying a high end one without problem

    You don't even have to spend $100 to get a fairly decent one. An Mx518 is about $40 now (bloody costs nearly £40 in the UK), I don't know how much it costs in France, but considering this mouse should last you a long time, its a very good investment. I've had my mouse for a year now, and I probably won't need a new mouse now for at least a year, probably a lot longer. Previously I used to get through a cheap £7.50 mouse every 4 months and although it hasn't paid for itself yet (although it will in time), the diference in quality more than makes up for it.

    If I were to buy a new mouse, would be the G5.. the interchange weight system is very neat. (not that I need 2000dpi anyway)

    And its $45
