I have a dilemma i need a new gaming mouse but dont know which one to choose. i narrowed it down\ to 3 mice, the sidewinder x8, the deathadder 3500 and the logitech g500. Which one is the best for the performance/price ratio.

Out of the three, its definitely the G500.. However, check out for Logitech MX 518 first..

I prefer the Razer DeathAdder myself. Logitech makes a good mouse but none of the ones I have used in the past have matched the comfort of the DA.

The only annoying thing is that I had to download the drivers, they didnt come one a cd, which was minor.

The DeathAdder also does not feature on the fly dpi sensitivity changing options like most of the Logitech's.. Also, the build quality, for that matter of any Razer product, is always inferior to the Logitech build quality..

The deathadder might not have a button on the mouse for changing dpi, but it does have the program with room for multiple configurations. Anyway - i've never come into a situation where I "just had to" swap dpi to win. Changing dpi that often is more of a hindrence.

As for build quality: They seem to be on par with logitech's wired offerings. My last few mice were logitech high-end models and this mouse feels at least equal [if not more comfortable] and in the few months i've owned it has given me no grief.

Keep in mind that we are offering opinions here: there is no right or wrong. Just because you are a fan of logitech doesnt mean they are the do-all end-all solution.

Both solutions work: it comes down to what fits your hand and what configuration options you really need. If you want to get technical even a free-with-purchase dell mouse could be used to game with - though, who would want to...

Oh lets not start a flame war here.. My intentions were to highlight the relative weaknesses and/or advantages.. Yes i'll admit that I do like Logitech stuff more compared to Razer.. I've used the MX 518, deathadder and currently using the G500.. Among these, I was most pleased with the MX 518 and so I recommend it each and every time someone comes up with a query regarding purchase for a gaming mouse..
