Any good mice for gaming out there? Optical mice are apparently more accurate, but also do this shaky recalibration thing when lifted from the pad and set back on it which can be incredibly annoying during fast-paced gaming. This makes me lean towards ball mice, but if some newer opticals have come out that correct this problem, I’d definitely be willing to consider them.
I don’t want to spend too much on a mouse, just need something sturdy and reliable that is great for gaming.
I would suggest a trackball, then the cord doesnt get in the way of movement. Wireless, can be a problem, but alot of people swear buy them. As a gamer I prefer a trackball, quicker and more accurate. Since the coord doesnt bother me I dont need a coordless.
At work, I use a coordless, seems slower and bulky to me, but that might because Im been using a trackball at home for over 10 years and it comes down to more ergonomics then the coordless feature. I have always found them annoying compared to a trackball though.
For coordless mice I hear the logitech is great. I use a logitech trackball.
Like anything, you will hear different opinions. But for coordless it seems Logitech is the best.
For gaming the trackball mouse rules, especially in FPS games, the larger the ball the better, with the ball itself being index finger controlled, anyone that says a regular mouse is better, has probably never used a trackball at all, and doesn't have a clue as to what they're talking about. I personally use the Microsoft Trackball Explorer.

My vote is also MS Intellimouse Explorer. I also own the wireless version and it definatly is slower in comparison and the batteries drain way to fast. Unless whatever you do absolutely demands wireless dont use wireless. As far as trackball goes I am amazed that someone thinks a trackball mouse performs better in FPS games than an optical or ball mouse. IMO and in the majority O, that is just not true but to each his own.

A friend of mine and I have both owned MX500 mice in the past, but they BOTH were flaky. If u just leave the mouse sitting there, the cursor moves around. This happened on both my friend's mouse and mine.
Also, on my mx500, the mouse sometimes had intermittent problems tracking vertically.
Multiple emails to Logitech were useless. We each had the latest drivers at the time.
