There is a very specific niche in the computer hardware market for gamers. This particular hardware forte has become an essential part amongst gamers' gaming machines. Manufacturers are creating specialty products that combine performance, quality and style for this particular market. This piece of hardware is the age old mouse. Any true gamer realizes how important a high quality mouse is for their gaming needs. Logitech has incorporated these sets of values and ideas into their MX510 mouse. They have created a mouse based primarily on the same design as the MX500/700 except with substantial increase in the mouse's resolution and sensitivity. I believe that Logitech has started a new trend which will allow us to soon see the emerging of many different high-end mice for the gaming enthusiast. Logitech, being one of the leaders in the market, have engraved their stance on quality and performance in all devices they manufacturer, especially the MX510.
Logitech has always been a leading manufacturer in mouse design. They continually raise the bar with each product they release. With the MX510 they combine precision, performance and style into an amazing product. In the past the MX range of products have been used and loved by gamers and power users alike. The MX510 tops the old MX line by improving on the essential facets of gaming: sensitivity and response time. This is accomplished through an improved sensor that reads at 800-dpi, captures 5.9 mega pixels per section and is able to track 15Gs of acceleration. Meaning, this mouse senses and reacts to your movements almost twice as fast as previous MX products. You get an instant response, as if the mouse is an extension of your body. The mouse also includes the advanced features seen in previous MX products. These features include the cruise control, application switch, and internet back/forward buttons built onto the mouse. These buttons aid in controling common application. The cruise control allows you to easily scroll through long documents or web pages with much ease. The application switch allows you to easily switch between running programs - much like the Alt-Tab feature on your keyboard. Lastly, the Internet back/forward buttons allow you to easily navigate back and forth in your favorite web browser. With regards to style, Logitech has created a fancy looking marble mouse that is available in both red and blue.
