of them mice listed the g700 and the gigabyte are the 2 best options. i dunno why you would want wireless as they do incur a lag penalty and often will run out of power just as you need em to work.
you may also want to add a cpyborg rat 9 to that list it has a spare battery that is charging while you play so you can swap it out and have a full charge instead of waiting or stripping the mouse to get at the battery to swap it.

+1 go Hexit, beat me to it mate :p 
Good battery life on mine so far, and the lag on these is so low its past human reactions anyhow,
hotswap is a two second job, and its about three hours on a charge from flat

Oh can you tell us if you use a palm grip or a claw grip? the nice thing about the mice i just linked is that it fits any grip style. For example the razer Orochi you listed is only for a claw grip.

I have used the Logitech Performance MX mouse for games including FPS games for a few year. While it is not designed specifically for games, I found that it does a pretty good job anyway. About late summer last year I bought the wired Logitech G500 mouse, to tell you the truth, I don't really notice the difference in performance.

The Performance MX mouse is currently on sale at Amazon for $50. I am buying another one as a backup mouse. My original Performance MX mouse still works fine even after I... ummm... dropped it, but I like to have another as a backup in case it dies.

I wouldn't go with the Orochi unless you have really small hands. I am 14 and my hand is way too big for it. I've never used any of the others. Other than the size, the Orochi works really well though. It has 4 programmable side buttons and a good scroll wheel, plus 4000 DPI is probably enough for you.

Im saying no to the RAT 9 and any other mouse that needs a reciever. I want simple plug-n-forget action. I did have some concerns with the razer orochi due to the size. The current mouse im using is a plain Genius Navigator 5000. It reaches around 10cm and it gets uncomfortable after long use. I thought the Orochi might be more comfortable to grip. My grip changes depending on the mouse so im happy with most designs. Im wondering though.... i cant seem to find the dpi of the M705 or the Performance MX anywhere......My primary concern with the Gigabyte is the build quality. If you have any other suggestions that would be great!

Hey you might want to take a look at this one?

This one has a design flaw that causes it to be able to rock back off its skates (no rear skate), and also the software to configure it is spyware. lol

Ok so no wireless mice then :) 
Shame because the Rat nine is a good one, have you looked at the 3,5,7 and M.M.O7 ones Cyborg do? the Nines the only wireless one

the g700 and the razer mouse, simply cause im biased towards razer products :D 

but i dont understand the need for a WIRELESS GAMING mouse

WIRELESS and GAMING are two words that just dont fit for me LOL

I suspect that many of the wireless mouse haters are simply repeating what they have heard or are sticking to "conventional wisdom", with no or minimal up to date experience.
A friend of mine has a Logitech G700 and he loves it, and after trying it have ordered one for my son for Christmas.
Myself I have been using a Rapoo V8 for nearly 2 years now and I love it, lag is non existent range is about 10 meters and build quality is extremely high and it has many features.
Another good looking mouse is the Mamba Elite 2012, though I have no experience with that one.
Hope this gives you some good options

Yeah that must be it :sarcastic:

I own the G700. Best mouse ever.
December 2, 2012 11:16:13 AM

The G700 has a short battey life (5-6 hrs as i heard). Furthermore i heard there are issues with the charging cable. After trying out the ones i suggested in a shop, i realized they are just far too small for the times i game when i am stationed at one place. I started looking at the Logitech Peformance MX, but the last one i had broke when it fell from my table, so i am skeptical of the build quality. I think i may have realized there are no proper wireless mice that use a nano usb. Ill have to live with a cord i guess. Ive been looking up some corded ones and 3 have caught my eye:
Logitech G9X
Razer Deathadder
Steelseries Sensei

Have i made the right choice for changing to wired or is there still hope for wireless?
December 2, 2012 1:24:33 PM

There is but you have stated you don't want the Nine :) 
and the M.M.O. 7 would have been my wired choice

I don't know what the guy saying the g700 is best mouse ever is thinking. I bought one today got it home hooked it up played with it for about three minutes unhooked it and drove back to best buy and returned it. That mouse is complete crap. The buttons suck balls. The logitech MX doesn't seem to bad, but right now I'm looking at the mamba.

To the fool that keeps knocking wireless.. Bro there are people who game on the go and it's kinda nice to get my *** set up ASAP on the go without dealing with a cord. Yeah at home when one can sit and relax use what's best performance wise, but when I'm out and about and want to get my game on wireless is just fine.

I was so damn disappointed in that g700, anybody been happy with a RAZER MAMBA?

I have the Performance Mouse MX as well, for over 2 years now, works perfect for gaming (FPS included). People anno 2013 still whining about lag caused by wireless mice, especially the Performance Mouse MX from Logitech using the Unifying receiver which imo is great, are in fact stating facts dating back years ago. There are wireless mice out there equally as good as wired mice, without the annoying cable.

My Performance Mouse MX needs to be changed because I just used it so often and I spilled some soda onto it by accident. After 2 years + my mouse looks brand new. The quality, if you're not stupid enough to drop it, is excellent.

Don't mind what people who never used it, or just don't want you to buy a wireless mouse because it lags (which is not the case), have to say about this product.

Anyway, hope that gives you a better look on the MX, from someone who actually has used it ;)

What did you get in the end and are you happy? Want wireless too and cant believe the price of the better mice.

Performancewise, I like the G700 a lot. It is a vary solid mouse that tracks very well, with a lot of well located buttons.

As far as long lasting solid mice goes, the MS Sidewinder x8 has the best wireless options for a desktop mouse I've used, but its sensor is not as good as the G700, which is pretty noticeable on a 120hz monitor. I was perfectly happy with it until I went with 120hz, which exposes the sensor's flaws, but the battery lasts a few days of use, and even while charging, the wire is so small, you can barely tell the wire is hooked up and it is super easy to hook up with a magnetic connection.

In the end i got both Wired and Wireless, an Asus GX810 for WL and Razer Imperator 2012 (it was 40 USD) for my Wired
March 24, 2013 7:13:35 PM

Nice, this thread was a while ago, I upgraded to the corsair m65, and now this is the best mouse ever. hahaha, I still like the g700 though, don't know what the dudes problem was with it..
March 25, 2013 2:58:22 AM

I agree that the logitech g700 is great. Not sure what there is not to like. The dpi is high with customize buttons and profiles. I guess the "feel" of the mouse varies for each person. From this article it seems to be rated pretty high:

If the cost do sent matter for you you can get Razor mouse for gaming which may help you
April 8, 2013 7:30:44 AM

One thing is certain in my mind though, ill never buy another Razer product again because all those people saying its cheap and badly made, are actually right. I thought the Imperator i got would be good, but it feels cheap and plasticky, my had slips off if easily, the software is buggy, the buttons feel weird and for some reason every time i lift it and put it back, my cursors locks itself on an invisible line usually killing me in frantic Dota 2 battles, furthermore the acceleration seems broken. Ugh, i guess ill just have to with my prime instincts and get another Logitech soon.
May 28, 2013 3:27:32 AM

Don't buy a RAT mouse. The sensor corrupts, with pretty much all of them. The sensor will stop working eventually in a short time period, any RAT mouse. I want a corsair m65, it's good you bought that mouse.
