The Legend Reborn

As one of the most-beloved gaming mice ever, MX518 has inspired legions of fans around the world to ask Logitech G to bring it out of retirement. Logitech pulled the original tools from the Vault and meticulously restored them—right down to the original glossy keyplate. It’s the classic, comfortable shape you know and love, now with modern components that perform to today’s advanced standards and a new, updated Nightfall color scheme.


HERO 16k Sensor

Enhanced with the Logitech's exclusive HERO 16K sensor. It’s Logitech's most accurate gaming sensor ever with next-gen performance and all-new architecture. With a capture rate of up to 17,000 frames per second, HERO achieves 400+ IPS across the entire 100 - 16,000 DPI range with zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration. HERO truly sets the bar for the highest levels of precision, for pros and enthusiasts alike.


Onboard Memory

MX518 comes fully loaded. Save up to five profiles to the onboard memory, using Logitech G HUB, and take them with you. Your saved settings will work on any PC without additional software or any login required.


On-The-Fly DPI

Cycle up and down through five DPI settings with a single click of the buttons directly above and below the wheel. Quickly reset your sensitivity with the Default DPI button. Customize these DPI settings with G HUB, or use the default settings (400, 800, 1600, 3200, and 6400) out-of-the-box.


8 Programmable Buttons

Use G HUB to program your favorite commands and macros to each of the 8 buttons. Save up to 5 different profiles directly to the mouse to take your settings with you anywhere.
