Hi guys. I'm sorry to bother you.

I'm ready to upgrade my 10+ year old mouse.

I don't want to go wireless. That sounds too unreliable for me right now.

I'm basically trying to decide between the Logitech MX518 and G5.

Both seem to be pretty good, and I've tried those and others out in stores.

Any suggestions :-)?

Go optical.
No ball to clean.
Works good on most surfaces.

You don't really need the software that comes with it.
Mine didn't.
(Kensington)(USB)(XP Home/SP2)

Got it at WalMart cheap.

Hi MusicWriter0984,

I don't personally own either, but I think I would choose the G5. Both should do great though.

Optical mice
are very nice.
One that fits your hand
is grand.
