    Re: Gaming mouse recommendations

    For what it's worth, I've had a Logitech G5 mouse for 6 years or so. Not had any issues with it at all, feels great in the hand and performs well enough for my needs.
    It doesn't look like it's readily buyable any more.

    The Logitech G500, however, is readily available and seems to be the 'upgraded' version of my mouse. So, despite the fact you've probably already bought your mouse, I'd also lean towards the Logitech G500..

    Re: Gaming mouse recommendations

    i bought the steelseries sensei raw over the weekend. 32 sheets from asda which is a healthy saving. also picked up the quickr mat for half the usual rrp.

    mouse seems like a nice smooth motion, good buttons on top. scroller is a bit clunky, but with goodnotches to make sure you go as far as you want.

    im getting wound up with the side buttons for page up/down in the browser already, so will look at turning them off tonight.

    Cyborg R.A.T. 3 if you're after an entry level and 7 if you have a bit more money to spend.

    The on-the-fly DPI changes are great, and the build quality on both is superb (even if the 3 feels a little plasticy - it's only £30ish though). But if you have big hands, you can't go wrong with either.

    I have a Cyborg R.A.T. 3. I love it and would recommend it to anyone. If you have the money, go for the R.A.T 7 or 9.

    - Corsair Vengeance M60/M90

    Re: Gaming mouse recommendations

    I've got the razer deathadder and found it to be a good mouse, its got 5 buttons so not too many. The design is nice and feels nice when using it. However, I have had to claim warranty due to the mouse double clicking when single clicking but this may just be a faulty one.

    Re: Gaming mouse recommendations

    Wife's Roccat is surprisingly nice, and my R.A.T.7 is highly adjustable.

    Skip Razer, the build quality is crap.

    Re: Gaming mouse recommendations

    I've always used a Logitech or Razer but some good suggestions in the thread so might have to change once this Naga goes.

    Re: Gaming mouse recommendations

    I'm going to put my vote for the R.A.T. 3. Extremely happy with it and the ergonomics are very good in my opinion. That its not too expensive is a big advantage aswell.

    It's an odd looking thing but seems to get rave reviews.

    Re: Gaming mouse recommendations

    Despite my earlier post about my G5 not having any problems at all, it's now developed what seems to be a fairly common problem where the cable seems to cause the mouse to disconnect and reconnect.
    Do any wired mice endure for more than a few years? Or are we all doomed to buy a new one every few years..?

    Re: Gaming mouse recommendations

    I have the Corsair M90 and I love it. It does have all those extra buttons you don't want, but I'm sure you could find a use for them. Set up different profiles for different games and enjoy being extra lazy and setting your the extra buttons to things like reload and crouch. For FPS one of the best features if the dedicated sniper button, hold it down and it'll instantly lower your sensitivity to whatever you want it to be!

    Re: Gaming mouse recommendations

    Would definitely recommend the Logitech G500. Great, solid mouse, versatile, tried and tested ergonomics.
    My other vote would go to the Steelseries mice. The XAI is an awesome mouse in its own right, especially for FPS players.
    Then there's the Steelseries SENSEI, if you've got a high budget, I'd thoroughly recommend it, give it a search online, it's a fantastic mouse designed for tournament level players in mind.

    I would say whatever mouse you purchase in the end, make sure you buy a good surface (mouse pad) to go with it. Steelseries surfaces (hope I don't sound like a fanboy! they are a quality company) are a good choice. I've got the 4HD with the G500, and it is a dream pairing. There's a wide range, but make sure your mouses sensor etc. is coupled with a good surface.

    Currently using the Razer Imperator 2012, which is quite good, but I do miss my old Logitech G400.

    Re: Gaming mouse recommendations

    I've been using the Logitech G500. It's pretty epic!

    Not the best mouse if you have small hands as its quite big.

    Got the option of additional weight to the move, configurable buttons and its 5700dpi.

    Quite cheap too - http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B002P0MIRG

    I am still using a Logitech MX510, its the older brother to the MX518. Had this mouse for nearly 8 years now, if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
