I need to choose a good mouse...........


I will be doing some gaming and normal stuff with the mouse. I can't accept any lag. And I don't really want to put out over $30 on a mouse. Which one should I get?

this one?




Is it worth putting out $50-$70 on a mouse?

If you vote OTHER please specify.

  1. I don't recommend Wireless mouses if you're a gamer...because batteries need recharge and its a pain.

    Well yeah but it cost $79.99 bones. And I ain't gonna spend over $50 on a mouse. :(
  3. Wireless? I would skip it at that price range.

    Fits hands? Right number of buttons in the right places?

    What games, and what style?

    Maybe Tom's Games is due for a mouse roundup. See if those expensive mice and controllers actually improve the k/d ratio.
  4. I like RaZer mice, something like the diamondback.
  5. Agree with above on the wireless comment. If your price range is $50 or below, in my humble opinion, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104178 is one of if not the best I have used.

    I have used the microsoft one and haven't used that specific logitech you listed but I really like my MX518 for a good gaming mouse that to me is comfortable, responsive and relatively inexpensive.

    If you absolutely must have a wireless you would probably be best served spending more money than intended. I personally do not care for most of the higher end ( >$50) logitech mice due to side button placement, shape and the "new" wheel they put on them. Feel of a gaming mouse means a lot to me and the more expensive ones feel awkward in my fairly large hands and buttons feel out of place or often too skinny and hard to tap quick. I hate the new wheel they put on their top mice now. Some might disagree but imo terrible feel in fast-paced FPSs.

    Take all that as you will it is just one person's opinion based on my own experience. Happy Gaming !
  6. I suggest the Logitech G5. It is a great high quality mouse. Easy adjustible DPI and the weight cartridge is an awesome option for customobility. I have been using one for over a year now and i am very happy. Plus the logitech customer service is great. I accidentally shorted my G5 out and they replaced it free of charge.
  7. I third the wireless comment - they are overrated... Get the top quality wired mouse you can afford, I have a Logitech G5 and it works for me.
  8. The best mice are with no dought Logitech, im using a Logitech MX518 Gamming grade for nearly 2 years now and is awsome, you can even ajust the sensibility in game with two buttons, very usefull if in a game you have to drive cars, walk and many others vehicles as each vehicle needs is own mice speed. see the review

  9. I <3 my Logitech MX518 as well! I have had it and abused it for a couple years now with no problems what so ever!

    Like stated before, the ability to adjust the sensitivity on the fly is great and I use it a lot! Like in BF 2 when I get in a chopper to fly I crank it all the way up real fast and can turn it back down when I go back to ground pounding.
  10. ^ What they said about wireless mice.

    I voted for 'other'. I have a Centrios X7:


    A bit more expensive, but amazing performance.
  11. I don't care what the mouse is. I just want it to have a poop-load of buttons.
  12. Oh well......

    Thanks anyways!
  13. i got the 2007 Logitech G5
    and its great

    also the MX Relovution

    both a great for gaming
    the G5 offers more DPI but the MX more buttons :P
    its all up to you
    the possibility to change DPI is jsut a gimick
    you cant use it much in game play

    good luck buying ;)
  14. Wireless is a nightmare. The batteries just start to piss you off once they die in a critical situation. (Someone pops around a corner to shoot you, but you click first... nothing happens. GOD D&#%IT. :p)

    the best mouse to get is the

    Razer Lachesis

    http://www.razerzone.com/index.php [...] ucts_id=72
    I've got one on order (blue, of course, to match my Antec 900 lights. :D) I'll post my comments once it arrives.

    You could try with one of the older Razers - they are still very good mice. I don't think you could go wrong with Logitech either, they know what they are doing when it comes to controllers.

  16. The first time I order from Tigerdirect will probably be my last. :/ When I placed the order (12/10/07) they had the blue Lachesis in stock... now it's telling me the product is no longer available and my mouse is back ordered with no date.
  17. the logitech G3 is a good one for cheap - if your in canada, wait for boxing day sale - the 7dollar g5 will sell for around 20, the microsoft/razr habu wil sell for around 30, also gamin mousepads are important so pick up an ideazon fragmat or something else

    shop around buddy
  18. I agree with the others on getting the G5, I made a $90 mistake and got the G9.
