    Best Gaming Mouse Ever ?

    I'm on the look out for a new mouse. Over the years I've tried loads: -
    * Track ball (oh cleaning the mouse every month was fun)
    * Optical
    * Laser
    * Cordless etc.

    I just brought a Logitech mx1000, which has died and wanted to know what everybody else uses. It is the second cordless mouse I've brought which just stopped working and I wasn't sure if I liked the button position.

    So now you know the reason, what’s everyone's favourite mouse of all time and why?

    Corded mouse

    I like the
    MX300 - comfortable small lightweight reliable simple

    I thought I might like the
    MX310 - small lightweight reliable but uncomfortable with awkward side buttons

    I have the Logitech MX510 and the difference between it and the "Microsoft intellimouse explorer" and Logitech "dual optical mouse" that i used to have is breathtaking..

    My cousin and brother have each got one and they also think it's the best mouse they have ever used

    MX700 gets my vote here as well. If your a lefty though .. say away as its designed for normal right-handed use

    Still using the explorer v3 here, but I am thinking of changing to the Logitech MX510 (corded) as it has 8 buttons on it which can obviously be of use in games for mapping keys to the buttons, the MX510 seems a better mouse than the MS v3

    MX700. I have had mine a year and have had no problems. Best mouse I have ever used. Certainly no problems wiht the tracking.
    Specs:

    Q6600 G0, Thermalright Ultra 120, ABIT IP35 PRO, 4GB Corsair DDR2, Trusty old Tagan 480u, BFG 8800 GTS 512, Samsung F1 750 GB.

    My MX500 does the job for me. Never had a problem. Thought about going wireless, but there really is no point until it goes wrong.

    MX700 works fine for me. Though I would expect the MX1000 to perform similarly.. Aren't they similar in design? (Haven't really looked for a replacement for my MX700 yet).

    Love my mx1000 - feels a lot better to me than my old 700 - sorry to hear yours died, I've seen quite a few reports of the early ones having probs, but the later ones seem to be ok
    Now go away before I taunt you a second time.

    Thnx Everyone, took my MX1000 into work and got it working again, no idea how, so hopefully when I take it back home it should work. Maybe the wireless signal ?

    Not to sure about cordless any more, I'll see how it goes in the future. I take it from everyone's post most people think logi-tech are the best for mice. I wouldn't mind trying a 510, to see what there like.

    I do have anoter question, when I'm gaming (doom3 mainly) sometimes the mouse/view suddenly goes straight-up or down so your staring at the cieling. You'll be in the middle of trying to frag, when suddenly your staring at the cieling and someone moe's you down with a rocket launher anyone got any idea's ?

    RAZOR BOOMSLANG!!!!

    i love it to pieces, still with the ball and the cord, but the cord doesnt get in my way in games, and the ball gives it some weight, i love i to pieces, and it feels great

    MS Intellimouse explorer or the new one.

    Find it suits my hand better ergonomically than the logitech range.
