Mouse died opinions neededFollow

So My Logitech G9x died, or rather was killed. Long story. So I'm in the market for a new mouse. Any opinions on which mouse i should go for? I posted back in this thread, but some new mice have come out I was wondering about, and some questions on old mice.
Some things I have to put out there, I'm a palmer , My G9 was using the grip in the pic not the slimer one, and i prefer a heavier feel (I had max weights inside)

The 4 mice I was looking at :
Logitech Performance MX:
Not really a gaming mouse, but I like the feel of it, read a lot of double clicking left mouse issues after a while. (Mazra said he uses this mouse, any issues with it so far Maz?) Otherwise seems to have enough buttons to make due with and features, not sure if I want a wireless but could make due.

Logitech G500/Razer Deathadder:
Basic gaming mouse, affordable, worried about weight/grip style.

Logitech G600:
The Logitech Naga, read that the buttons make MMO's better, and they have a better feel when then the Naga. Also Is a bit bigger then the Naga which might go well with my play style. But worried my out of MMO uses might be limited. ATM i play WoW/GW2, but I also play FPS, which I hear these mice are not ideal with.

Any opinions or maybe another suggestion?

I can only second Xsarus's opinion. I've had a Logitech Performance MX for a couple of years now and it's great. I know that "real gamers" are a bit wary about using a cordless mouse, because apparently real gamers prefer pointless constrictions, or are afraid that they won't be able to play for 18+ hours in a row without putting their mouse back in the docking bay recharger, but the MX comes with a micro-USB cord for recharging, enabling you to play all day long without having to use a docking bay.

Excellent cordless mouse. And apparently you can use it on transparent surfaces due to the Dark Field™ laser thing. You know, for when you need to play on a glass table or something. Smiley: dubious

As for the double-click issue, I never personally had that and I'm fairly certain Logitech has weeded out that issue by now. Left clicker started acting up a while back, but knocking the mouse silly for a bit fixed it. It's 2+ years old and I use it on a daily basis. And I'm not gentle with it. Smiley: sly

I just recently bought a Naga Death Adder and I love it. I will say it is very light, so that may be a problem for you, but I'm sure there's a way around that. I think my favorite thing about it is the snake shaped light on top.

I bought a Microsoft SideWinder X8 mouse two years ago and it works perfectly. I much prefer Microsoft gear to Logitech, but then it might be me. I still recommend you give it a look (or the current alternative for surely mine is probably outdated by now)

I don't like the G500 as much as the G5, but I did like it enough to get one to absorb the punishment for the month I played D3, and it was perfectly serviceable at that. My biggest peeve was that out of the box the scrollwheel wasn't ratcheted, but once I switched ratcheting on, it's just fine.

Well Im down to one of 2 now. Unfortunately I cant get a Performance MX, so I have the choice of either Logitech G700 or a Razer Naga. I can't take my time and order one online because I'm stealing my wifes laptop mouse atm, and both of those are on sale at a local Best Buy for 50 bucks. The wife shot down the performance MX after I told her the price XD.

So do I go with the Wireless(Hybrid) Mouse with 13 buttons or the MMO mouse. I'm undecided

I'm a huge fan of my Naga...took a bit to get used to, but I don't think I'd ever go back. Some people have had issues with getting things bound, but I just made a 3x4 grid in bartender, set those keybinds to the number pad, and I haven't had any issues. Works great with Clique as well. The only problem I've had is using my laptop that doesn't have a number pad, and it causes issues with typing with numlock on...but that's not the mouse's fault :)

I'm mildly annoyed with my Deathadder. It is comfortable, but I've had some problems with the main mouse buttons starting to become unreliable after a fairly short period of use (7-8 months) and spotty quality control seems to be a fairly common complaint about Razer mice. Not every mouse has problems, but the complaints are common enough to make me cautious about my next purchase. My Logitech mice and trackballs have tended to last five years and up.

Am I the only one who saw a first post that didn't quite fit the topic and looked to see signs that it was another stealth spammer?

MX 518 is the only option since Logitech stopped making the G5 (or at least, the good version).

Razer is awful. All of their products are **** quality (I've owned quite a few, all have been returned or scrapped). Logitech is the only option for gamers.

I had a Razer keyboard (the Arctosa) for 3 days before I returned it and bought a Logitech G110. The Arctosa was brand new and half the keys stayed pressed after you hit them. The Esc button actually got stuck under the body of the keyboard at one corner. And I just found it very uncomfortable to use. The G110 was a far better purchase. This thread is about mice I know, but I just had to comment on the sh*t quality of Razer products.

I use a Logitech mouse too, but I'm a keyboard turning baddie, so I'm just using a cheap old M310 wireless. My last two mice were the basic Microsoft wireless mice and they both died in under a year. This one's going on 3 years.

I really wish I had asked you guys before I bought my Death Adder.

I was a Logitech wireless man for the longest time. Then when I built my new PC I bought a wireless mouse/keybaord comvbo. I was constantly having problems with the wireless losing connection and decided to buy a wired mouse and keyboard. Of course, I didn't do my homework and just assumed Razer was the best because people were always talking about them. I couldn't afford a Naga, but the Death Adder was really all I needed and was right in my price range.

Now I'm wondering if I can find the receipt to go exchange it for a Logitech gaming mouse.

Honestly, if your mouse works then don't worry about it.

You can always buy a new mouse if your Razer falls apart, but it'd be a waste of money to go out and buy a Logitech mouse before that happens - as long as the Razer gets the job done.

I switched from a Logitech MX518/G110 to a Razer Imperator/ Blackwidow Ultimate about a year or so ago. I've had no problems with the Razer products, and only bought them because I fancied a change from the G110, and my MX518 died after 3 years of hard use. I have a Naga aswell, but would recommend against it, because even though it has 12 buttons down the side of it, only the first 5-6 are easily accessible, and depending on your hand size, it's uncomfortable to hold for longer than an hour or so.

No, I bought it recently enough, like maybe 2 weeks ago, that Best Buy may still accept it as a return/exchange. Oh oh and I just realized I don't need a receipt because I am a Rewards Zone member and they track all of my purchases with my membership. Victory!

Ok I got the Logitech G700 (59.99 on sale @ Bestbuy) has a has a decent feel the wireless/hybrid is nice, has 4 buttons by my thumb that I can easily tell apart and 3 next to the left mouse button. I dont like where the scroll wheel toggle is placed but I'll get used to it. Has nice heft to it, about the same as max weights in a G9x. maybe a lil more, the palm curve takes some getting used to its kinda high but should be fine after a few days adjustment.

As for being a hybrid all wireless mice should be like this. I got it home un-packaged it and pluged it in and used it while it was charging (The mouse feels a bit stiff with usb cord in it cause the cord is stiff) but after i took it off it was nice now I know i can just keep playing and if i feel my mouse if going to get a low charge plug it in and keep going, no batteries, No swapping, just a quick plug and done.

I did do some research and I guess the battery indicator is off, so even if the mouse shows 1 light left in battery its still half full but meh, ill just plug it in before bed every night and should be good.

As for keyboards I use a G510, It was a replacement/upgrade from logitech I had an older G keyboard and it shorted out and kept causing Windows to crash, so they upgraded me to a G510 for free, best part was i bought the old one off Ebay for like 30 bucks now i have a 120 dollar keyboard for almost nothing. I <3 this keyboard btw, other then its a tad wide.

Thank you all for your input :)

If the G700 comes with the same software as my MX, you'll get a giant "BATTERIES ARE GETTING LOW, LULS!" pop-up when it's about to die. From what I've experienced, the pop-up is click-through and semi-transparent, so it doesn't break your game.

I heart that pop-up so much, because when I play, my index finger is covering the battery indicator, so I have no idea what's up.

So after this thread I decided to buy another Microsoft Sidewinder mouse for my other gaming computer ... much to my dismay the line doesn't exist anymore :(:(

I've located a couple of devices from sellers who still have one or two items on their selves but I've decided to take a look at other products too. Anyone familiar with the X8 can comment on a similar mouse?
