    [OT] Logitech mx 510 vs mx 500

    I wanted to get a new mouse but I'm not sure if I should get the mx 500 or the mx 510. A friend of mine told me that the 500 is the same as the 510 except the 510 has the colors. So I'm not sure if its worth it to spend the extra 10$ on the 510. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

    The mx510 has the better sensor.
    If you are a high sens. player, save yourself a few bucks and get the mx500.
    If you're a low sens. player, get the 510. :up:
    They are exactly the same shape and size.

    Whatever you do, DO NOT get the MX1000!

      Why not get the MX1000?

        It doesn't really mather, both are great mouses. I own both and there's no real value in the extra precision of the mx510 imo, you won't really notice it in games especially if you never had the mx500, the mx500 will allready be a great step step forward.
        So if money is your decider just go for the mx500, a great mouse.

          because it lags in games, most noticable in FPS games like UT2004

          check out the topic about it : A little warning about the MX-1000

                  So the 510 is a little more accurate than the 500 but not so much more that it will make a difference or does it actually make a difference? Because if the 510 is noticeably better than the 500 than i would just get the 510.

                    I upgraded from the MX500 and tbh I couldn't really notice the difference. If there is one, it is very small.

                    The main difference for me was that the Logitech drivers for the MX510 actually work properly! With the MX500, the drivers were so buggy I had to revert to Microsoft default drivers. I use logitech drivers with the MX510 and they work fine, no negative accelleration troubles.

                      You could have used the MX510 drivers with your MX500 , then you wouldn't have encountered those probs << tip for all MX500 owners

                        Ahh, didn't know that. I always thought that the MX510 drivers couldnt be used with the MX500.

                          look it's very simple mate

                          if u going to play games:
                          MX510

                          if u using it for destop:
                          mx500

                          i have had both mx500 and mx510 .. much say the software from mx510 is a littlebit better for the games ... yes the buttons....
                          there is a BIg diffrend in hte preformens .. with low sens u can feel, SEE, notice the diffrends. Been there, Done that.

                          so if i was u i would go for the mx510

                            Oh you can, no problem. But it will not fix the 'negative acceleration'.

                              Is the negative accell a hardware problem then?
