The MX518 comes with a USB-to-PS/2 adapter for those of you that either don't have a USB port (who doesn't have one of those these days?) or if you simply prefer PS/2 over USB. If you're buying a gaming mouse you're more than likely not going to be using the adapter, but for whatever reason you have Logitech has provided it so that the MX518 will work with any computer configuration.
The SetPoint software that's included on a CD allows MX518 owners to receive an audio notification when switching sensitivity settings on-the-fly. SetPoint also allows you to program six of the eight buttons on the mouse to perform different tasks. You are also able to create up to five custom sensitivty settings and switch to them on-the-fly!
The MX518 installation manual provides easy to understand illustrated instructions on how to get your new MX518 mouse installed and setup on your computer.
