Logitech MX510 Performance Optical Mouse

If you're a right-handed mouse user with an appetite for shortcut buttons and lightning-fast response times, the Logitech MX510 Performance Optical Mouse will be right up your alley. Available in a hypnotic red or blue finish, the mouse also boasts an ergonomic design that'll appeal to gamers and professionals alike. It does not have wireless capability, tethering to your PC via a USB cord, but at least that means you won't have to deal with charging or changing the batteries.

Every button (there are eight total) and speed setting on the MX510 Performance Optical Mouse is customizable using the included software. You'll appreciate the software especially if you're not used to having forward and back shortcuts on the side of your mouse, because the two here are somewhat prone to accidental presses. But in terms of performance, feel, and appearance, the Logitech MX510 makes a great choice for anyone who wants more from their mouse. Its optical sensor has an 800dpi (dots per inch) resolution, making the mouse sensitive enough for all but the most demanding gamer, and even graphics professionals will appreciate the consistency of the MX510 Performance Optical Mouse's finely tuned response.
