Default Mouses... mx510

Hello. My friend is looking for a long-lasting gaming mouse.

I recommended the mx 510 by logitech, but after researching, it has seemed that the mouse has a short life and that many people have problems with it like it not functioning well and the laser breaking.

But which to get the mx510 or the logitech intellimouse?

The mx 510 is 50 CAD.
The intellimouse is 30 CAD.

So the intellimouse is cheaper, made by microsoft (name brand), longer lasting, protects the laser unlike the mx510. The mx510's laser is direct.

So which mouse should I get?

Thanks

1. it's mice, not mouses
2. neither are laser mice, although it may seem so. the mx1000 is the only laser mouse that i know of
3. i have an mx510 and it's nice. i'd get it over the intellimouse simply because the intellimouse is made by microsoft (yes i'm anti-microsoft). i'm sure in terms of performance both are ppretty much equal.

Go for any of the mx mice. I have the mx700 and cant complain at all. If you want to try a laser mouse try the mx1000. Look for anything from logitech.

Both of those mice are good, But i think the Logitech Mx 510 is better for gaming .

Logitech Mx 510 is one of the best gaming mouses around.

I think fatal1ty uses it and his the best gammer in the world.
So it has to be good.
