A Glorious Return
Wow, was I ever surprised to see that Logitech was bringing back the greatest gaming mouse of all time! Believe it or not, I'm still using my original MX518 that I bought in 2005!

I bought the MZ1 to understand Zy
It's amazing how that small minor adjustment/asymmetrical curve on the right side of the mouse made a HUGE difference vs mice like the UL/Viper mini when it comes to comfort and grip. The bottomline is, if you do grip the mouse like me, you probably will have a smooth transition to this mouse.
My mice from 2002 to 2020
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work anymore and the MX Touch isn’t as good. Desktop gaming: Probably keeping the Vioer for now, unless there’s another lightweight no holes mouse that’s good. Desktop backup: In case the wireless one runs out of battery, I always have the MX518. Wondering if I should replace that with the Model O :).

The Return of the King
I was heartbroken when my my old MX 518 died a few years ago. It was the greatest gaming mouse I’ve ever owned. Logitech absolutely nailed the ergonomics on the 518. I never found an adequate replacement. I’m not a fan of Logitech’s newer mice. They have great sensors, but very poor ergonomics with ...

Brand loyalty wavering due to dwindling quality control.
TL; DR: Brand loyalty wavering due to dwindling quality control. M-BJ58, MX518 (1600 DPI), MX518 (1800 DPI), G300S, G403, G Pro (Wired, Non-Hero Sensor), G Pro Wireless (Batch 1918), G Pro Wireless (Batch 2013), G Pro Wireless (Batch 2022), Powerplay. Other Logitech products: X530, G35, G15, G Pro Keyboard, C920, Z623, G500, G9, G502 (Proteus Core). I have used many Logitech products over the years.
My collection in the quest of the supreme shape... AMA! (swipe for names)
The hump isnt the best but could do. It's overall a better WMO. -Logitech Mx500(mx518): the hump is sweet, the rest is bad, this is how an ergonomic hump can feel better than a symmetrical one, gpw hump feels great but the mx500 feels a bit more natural. Its not perfect though.
