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.

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

the best mouse to get is the

Razer Lachesis [...] ucts_id=72

Well yeah but it cost $79.99 bones. And I ain't gonna spend over $50 on a mouse. :(

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.

I like RaZer mice, something like the diamondback.

Agree with above on the wireless comment. If your price range is $50 or below, in my humble opinion, 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 !

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.

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.

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

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.

I don't care what the mouse is. I just want it to have a poop-load of buttons.

Oh well......

Thanks anyways!

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 ;)

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 [...] 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.

Please do

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.

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

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