What is the best gaming mouse under $40?

So sadly (or happily as you'll later see), my HP Wireless Optical mouse laser broke after a power out (I don't even know how...). So I'm in the store to buy a new mouse in the USA once again (it'll be shipped to relatives).
So my question is what's the best mouse intended for gaming under $40 you guys could find?
Here are the specs I'm most comfortable with:
- At least 3600 DPI
- At least 5 buttons if not more (the extra 2+ for programming, as I enjoy to play LoL every now and then).
- A black body (I'm looking for a mouse to go with my computer, desk, and room. Not something that looks ugly.)
- Wired mouse (I. Hate. Wireless)
- Reputable Manufacturer (No no names please)
- A Laser setup (I've used optical and trackball, so it doesn't hurt to try something new).

Here are the mouses which I've found so far, but I don't know which is the best, or if there is a better one out there:
Perixx MX-3000B

Razer Deathadder (This is one exception, I've heard good things about this one):

Razer Spectre StarCraft II Edition:

Which of those are the best? Or is there a better one out there?
Thanks in advance!

  1. i dont really 'buy' (pun intended) these mouse that are starcraft or diable or whatever edition they are, they just add some design and the prices go up big time. but that is just me

    here's my advice, go to youtube and watch some reviews, linus has lots of these. if you can find them locally (even if you wont buy from them), get a feel of it
  2. I have watched and read as many reviews as I could get my hands on. Sadly, the majority of the reviews are for $50 mouses, and not $40-. The reason I picked the spectre wasn't because the brand name (I don't even play starcraft II), it was the price and features.

    9 programmable buttons. The 4 sides buttons and 2 main ones would prob be the most effective. But the scroll wheel also doubles as a button, that might work well for LoL.

    I'm a fan of StarCraft 2. But I haven't bought any SC2 branded hardware. That mouse would be good enough(browse the net) to toss in my laptop bag and use when traveling. I might have to pick it up.
