Reccomend me a new laser gaming mouse!

So my current mouse is dying (it's double clicking at random times) and I'm in the market for a new laser gaming mouse. Do you have any recommendations?

As to requirements, I don't really have any. Wireless would be nice, I had an old Logitech wireless gaming mouse that I really liked a few years ago, and I can't say I noticed any lag when using it. I really hate it how cords drag on the edge of my desk, or acts like a spring when it pushes against something. If I did get another corded mouse, I'd probably get one of those Razer Bungees to sort my cord issues out. For price, maybe up to $100?

I had been thinking a Razer mouse of some kind to match my keyboard, but I haven't really heard great things about their mice. I've read a lot of reviews that say the Logitech G500S is one of the best gaming mice, and I'm rather fond of the "hyperscrolling" mouse wheel toggle that a lot of logitech mice use.

Any suggestions guys?

Best solution

Well the Razer Death adder is 1 of the top rated gaming mice in the world (rated by consumers) I would say that would be a good bet for u! And i like razer because they make great stuff! Or the razer Mumba which is wireless and quite nice in the hand apparently! It looks cool in my eyes

what mouse do you have now? a lot of times the plastic from the button that clicks the micro switch inside the mouse wears out. I had an old mouse that I loved to use that started the double click, opend it up and put a dab of superglue on the tab let it dry and the filed it down smooth. Its now working better the ever. I run 4 razor mice all the time, one at work, laptop, and two at home. none of them have had any problems in the past 5 years, a few of our cad guys at work use them as well.

When it comes to mice to each their own you need to find one that fits your hand and you feel comfortable with since you will be holding it for hours on end gaming.

Hmmm, it seems like you two are both fans of Razer's mice, I wonder why I don't seem them rank very high in reviews?

I currently have a Logitech G7 mouse, I could probably fix the busted left mouse button, but I feel like a change!

Yes we are fans of Razer. Well I am! But it doesn't make me blind to other mice. There are other good ones like the R.A.T or Steel series but Razer is my favorite yes

Hmmm, it seems like there's two versions of the Razer Mamba, 2012 and 2013. How do you tell which is which?

Decided on the Razer Mamba! It seemed to essentially be a wireless Death Adder and that mouse seem to be much loved by people across the internet, so it seemed like the best choice.

Loaded up a round of Team Fortress 2 to test it out and proceeded to get three head shots in a row. I'm all the more impressed since there's usually a bit of a handicap until you get used to a new mouse and I'm also pretty bad at Sniper. So yeah, it seems like a really good mouse and it's wireless to boot, no more snagged cables! I don't miss the Logitech hyperscroll wheel as much as I thought, since the Razer wheel is quite soft and I can still scroll though websites quite quickly and quietly.

The wireless functions of the mouse did stop responding awhile ago, but plugging the base into a different USB port seems to have solved the issue.
