New help choosing between gaming mice

Hello,

I have been using the RAZER Lachesis mouse for a long time now, and I can't take it anymore, the buttons drive me crazy, the middle mouse button stops working half the time, and the WORST is that literally every half an hour or so (sometimes quicker) I have to unplug and plug the mouse back in so it can basically recalibrate its sensitivity.

Considering how much I've heard about RAZER, and that I paid roughly $80 for this mouse, I expected better. So I'm not really looking for another RAZER mouse.

These are the mice I'm considering currently (As long as the price is under $100, I don't care):

Mionix NAOS 5000 7 Buttons USB Laser 5040 dpi Mouse

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I like the look of this mouse, however I've never heard of Mionix, but from the little I have seen, it seems like people like it.

=============================================================

Steelseries Ikari Black 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser Mouse

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This thing just sounds like a badass, and from what I've heard, it has very good ergonomics (tbh, I still don't know what that word means, it just sounds cool XP).

==============================================================

Logitech G9x Black Two modes scroll USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspxItem=N82E1682...

Now I'm kind of prone to Logitech, they seem to always make good technology, and I had the 518MX for the longest time before I bought this RAZER that I have now.

===============================================================

If anyone else has any better suggestions, please let me know.

Games I regularly play:

Team Fortress 2
Starcraft 2
Left 4 Dead 2
etc.

I don't play MMO's, so I don't need one of those crazy I HAVE LOTS OF BUTTONS mice, just at least the two side buttons for back/forward browsing, and customization in general.

Regards,

Freeman

Oh that's too bad a I was just about to recommend the Corsair Vengeance M65 thats from what I heard pretty good and it's the one I was considering getting myself. Plus the Razer you have isn't as commonly used for gaming as I have noticed the Razer Deathadder is preferred over most other Razer mice.
