about a week ago i purchased the logitech g15 keyboard and really like it. im not liking how it looks/feels with an old white gateway mouse. i was looking at the logitech g5. i dont want the g7 because it seems the only difference is wireless and i dont need that. i dont really like how the mx518 looks. i guess its a lack of buttons Lol.

The g5 would probably be very comfortable on the hand. Plus you have many more programmable buttons to, to act as maybe play/next buttons for media control if you could program them for that.

I do see some plusses for getting wireless though. My mate has wireless, and the batteries last a very long time. Its good to know the keyboard/mouse can be placed anywhere and still be used, but with people with desks, etc, with them in fixed places, there probably is no point.

Plus your paying about $20 extra, just for the wiress in the case that its the same... so yeah.

I have a cheap £15 mouse, and it suits me, but the feel would never be as good as with a proper full on one, meant for comfort, etc.

i just got home with the g5. installed it and love it! for some reason i just cant see the MX518 and my G15 together. it was real easy to get the cord for my g5 in the trenches in the g15. i highly, highly reccomend both these items to any gamer.

Who needs 2000dpi? My MX518 has 1600dpi maximum and it's already good enough.

"Dots Per Inch/Pixels Per Inch. The resolution of an image or how many pixels are defined in the boundary of a square inch. The more correct term is pixels per inch, however dots per inch is often used instead."

So basically, I think the higher it is, the more precision and accuracy you have.
