Anybody want to bet that it'll be >100SGD? Even though it's about 80SGD (convert from 59USD), we always get screwed when it comes to pricing.....

My Mx518 still alive and kicking. Though I prefer g502 to it because of the super clicky scroll wheel

Amazon is selling the original MX518 at US$170 so anything less than S$100 for the new version will be a bargain.

I think I still have the silver version in storage somewhere. These Logitech mice last a really long time.

I think they last very long last time. I've been using a Logitech G1 which I believe is close to 10 years old now. This I got as a replacement for the MX518 if I am not mistaken. I am not too sure longevity still holds with current Logitech mice.

I'm still using the G700s which has lasted for years as well. Hopefully, Logitech will come up with a replacement for this since none of the current mice has the same button layout.

My MX518 used for 10 years before it died.

But I won't get another one. There are other mice with better ergonomics at a lower price.

And the weight makes it hard to play CSGO.
