    Anyone have experience with the two? Is one better than the other?

    Get wireless and a decent mousepad I recommend but Logitech are good, I should think its a question of features between the two


    If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.

        Love my MX-518. Can't speak for the G5.

          And I love my G5. Although I do have the original first version G5 with only one side button. They both like identical. I'm sure you can't go wrong with either one.

            I love my MX518, but the USB cord recently shorted out... luckily had a spare cheapo USB mouse to swap out the cord.

            Got mine from Target (in the exclusive red color) for $35 or so

              I like the way the MX518 and other MX mice are laid out with the buttons. It has the 3 buttons by the scroll wheel that can be programmed for anything. The G5 is almost the same except it's a laser mouse and has a horizontal scroll on the mouse wheel.

              I would go with the G5. It one more button even though it's one less of the kind of button I prefer. It's a laser mouse with higher DPI. More buttons and higher DPI should make it worth the extra $5. And free shipping!

                  MX518. Been using the same one since January 2007 and still going strong :)

                    G5.
                    Had mine since August 07, and now it belongs to my brother. Really, the major differences between the two are the engines. Optical vs laser.
                    Other than that, the new G5 grip is pretty good, and the extra side button is a plus. Keep in mind it uses the same software as the MX518 too, so you can map the buttons anyway you want to.

                    Cheers,
