I've got some extra cash saved up and I desperatly need a new mouse. Been using a trackball for years and the thing is just about dead.

I've looked at razors and cyborgs (online) and others, and while they're a bit expensive I'll get one if they're worth it. Give some props to your favorite mouse and post it.

C'mon techies...help a pilot out Smile

I've had a logitech G5 forever it seems. The leather is nicely worn in by now.

Logitech MX518, still works perfectly after almost 6 years

If your mouse isn't logitech, you're doing it wrong.

I personally use a Logitech G500

Love it.
Its got most of the feature of the G5.
But here click a button in the center and the mouse wheel rotates freely.
I find myself subconsciously expecting the mouse wheel to spin every time i have to scroll down a large amount of text.
What does it do for gaming? Precisely nothing, but it works great for browsing.

Also i personally always use the weight caddy completely empty. Honestly don't see the appeal of a heavier mouse.

Couple of snags though, the pleated cord got got breached in one place and the plastic wire is sticking out.
Also the right mouse was spotty for a few days, but mysteriously fixed itself somehow.

There is a fine line between a post and a signature.

I'm using a Logitech MX something or another. It's black on the sides with programmable buttons and silver down the middle.

I have 18g in my caddy, 3 in the top slots and one in the lower left. I like the weight distributed like this, seems to work well, there's just a "good feel" when I move the mouse with a little weight under it. I guess it's be like a pool stick or a golf club, some people like a little weight.

yeah, I know what you mean Ituhata. Nothing better than a good mouse. Gonna be hard to toss this one out for a new one.





lol Danger Mouse!

Lots of logitech out there. tbh, I didn't even think of them as gaming mice, good info to know. In the last 10 years I've had 2 mice so not much experience on my end considering technology is changing so fast.

Any other brands out there that are decent?

I have a Razer Death Adder, which I wouldn't recommend. It overheats.

If I could have it without the overheating, I'd be happy with it.

I still use an old Dell Microsoft made 2 button with scroll in the middle. Best I have ever owned. Keyboard is far easier for programming.

In the palm area, there's a little blue sigil that glows. [image]

It looks cool, but after playing for a few hours, it gets really warm.

I am very curious to find out what makes a mouse overheat...
I've thought of several reasons one might overheat, but I'm having a hard time connecting them to normal computer use...

There is no such thing as a fair fight...

If your fighting fair you have automatically put yourself at a disadvantage.

I use a G300. It's small and light and helps with my grip a lot. I incidentally moved from an MX518. But I agree with Akeirei, if you ain't using Logitech...

Most Logitech mice have horrendous angle snapping, especially the MX518. Thankfully you can disable it on the G500 though.

I'm currently using a Microsoft Habu but it's starting to wear down a bit and screw up, was a great mouse while it lasted though.

I had this old mouse once, actually i still may have it laying around, had the two usual buttons but instead of a scroll wheel, it was more like an up and down rocker switch.

This is probably my favorite mouse, its pretty old, hasn't changed much in about 5 million years, but its still pretty widespread.
