My Razer Diamondback is starting to not work (have to click multiple times).

I was looking at these 3 mice. Which one would be the best for the money and for slight gaming (nothing to serious)

Still deciding between the Abyssus and Abyssus Mirror (newegg has the mirror for 30$ +6$ shipping so cost would be the same as amazon)

Of the ones you mentioned, I'd go with the G400. All of the others have very limited DPI settings, or lack any additional programmable buttons. None of them mentioned their report/polling rate except the G400, which has the industry fastest poll rate of 1000/s.

BTW I forgot to mention that I have never used the programmable buttons on my Diamondback :D

If you never use the side buttons, even when available, then the Razer is a good option too.

But the G400 is also good and less expensive.

I was thinking about the G400 but it makes me somewhat nervous beause I have smaller hands. Along with that, is there a huge difference between the Abyssus and Abyssus Mirror? (the mirror is 29$ on newegg / regular is 32$ on amazon)

I also use a hard (wood/plastic) surface, no pad

The size of the G400 is actually not that big. There are plenty of larger mice. It is some what narrow, but is long. Depending on how you hold it, will depend on how you like it. The G400 is the same shape as the extremely popular mx518 that had been the best selling mouse for many years.

You may have to go to a local computer store to see how you like it. It's hard to judge these things without testing them.

Did you at least look in the boxes to see the actual size and hold the molded plastic the best you could? It might give you a better idea. I recently bought a new mouse, as I didn't like the G400 I had due to a lack of buttons (I like a lot more than you obviously :p ). One thing I noticed was the Razer you listed was lower to the surface, and not very long, but I think it was wider than the G400 (I might be mistaken, that model looks to be the narrowest of the Razer mice). I actually didn't like any of the Razers as none of them had the tilting middle mouse button, something I've grown to like.
