    looking for a gaming mouse

    ok guys, ive had a razer lachesis, 'bringer of silent FAIL' as they call it ... it wouldnt track properly and it seems its a common problem , now im looking at trying a different mouse...

    ive heard of the roccat kone, and the ikari steelseries , as well as the obvious ones from microsoft and logitech , and i want to give razer a break for now, what else can you guys suggest?

    Re: looking for a gaming mouse

    Well the Logitech G9 is very nice, and from all the great things we've heard about Logitechs Support lately that looks like it could be a winner.

    However there was a similar thread and someone suggest another gaming mouse, I cant remember what it was called, and he said it was better than the G9. Ill go search!

    Edit : Here it is http://www.cybersnipa.com/eu/product...ming-mouse.php

    I've had the razer deathadder, and logitech g5, g7, and g9, but the cyber snipa is the best mouse I've had

    Re: looking for a gaming mouse

    i guess your budget isnt low? if it is then i could recommend the saitek cyborg if you like the look of it then its perfect as it has lots of buttons etc.

    Re: looking for a gaming mouse

    I'm going to go for the Cyber Snipa, as its something different and imo just as good or better then the g5. Hopefully I should be putting up a mini review in the next couple of days. Its also available on amazon for £29.99.

    Anyhow if not, then the Logitech g5 is a very good mouse.

    Logitech mice are good, only razer ever worth mentioning is the deathadder, the steelseries ikari is also good (i have it )

    As you can see, all are great mice (i used fpslabs as a source as they seem to specialise in mice/headset reviews)

    Re: looking for a gaming mouse

    i find it strange that the g5 and the deathadder are about a year and a half old by now but theyre still getting vouched by people... while newer ones like the razer diamondback 3g and the microsoft sidewinder dont get alot of attention?
