    MS laser mouse 6000, affectionately referred to as 'the toad'. ugly as sin from a first look, but it really helps with the cts.

    Razer Salmosa. Exactly what I want in a mouse. Gaming class hardware. No drivers/software required. Also doesn't cost an arm and a leg... mine was 1337 plus 5$ shipping :)

    Logitech G5 wired laser mouse. I would have gotten the G7 instead, but they stopped making them. :(

    I'm actually looking for a new mouse right now, trying to find a bigger mouse since I've realized my huge hands don't properly rest on the mouse to prevent CTS.

    $20 MS Optical mouse. :icon_biggrin: I'm left-handed and have never really found one of the premium mouses that feels right in my hand. Even the few "ambidextrous" ones.

    Razer Naga. Yes, the 15 button crazy mouse. And no, I don't use it for WoW.

    I normally don't use one at all. I have an IBM Trackpoint keyboard and a Belkin Nostromo Speedpad.

    Still using the second generation Logitech G5. I need another mouse for the laptop I have coming tomorrow, so I'll probably get the G500 and demote the regular old G5 to the laptop bag.

    It's their idea of a joke. If you convert it to 'l33t sp34k', it's 'leet', etc. $13.37 and 5$ shipping. Sorry for my poor syntax :)

    But the price is very nice...

    Logitech G7 for gaming, alongside a very old Logitech iFeel mouse for everything else, because all of my G7's have exhibited a tendency to double-click whenever I single-click after a few months of use.
    Aside from the double-clicking problem, the G7 is far and away my favorite mouse ever. This is my 3rd one, both others replaced under warranty--all 3 had the same problem, regardless of which computer I had it on.

    Razer Mamba after my second Logitech G7 exhibited the same problem (randomly dropping sync then resyncing). I'm actually pretty happy with the Mamba so far.

    Logitech G7 usually but I did just get a G500 a couple of weeks ago because of the need for more than one side button.

    Hey guys, my mom let me pick out a couple things for Xmas. In addition to the wireless XBox360 for Windows controller, I got this Logitech Gaming Mouse G300:
    http://www.logitech.com/en-us/gaming/mice-keyboard-combos/devices/gaming-mouse-g300

    It's not totally button crazy per se. Technically it has 9, but one's used for "mode switching," and another for dpi-switching.

    I'll share some impressions about it later. :icon_smile: If you're a southpaw, you'll probably appreciate this because it works equally well for either hand. However, it is a bit smaller than the MX510 I'm used to. I used this last night though and it felt fine.

    I have the Logitech G500 at home now, and I like it. I'm not sure if it is quite as comfortable as the MX518, but it is very similar and I like it.

    The back button on my G5 v2 started crapping out at some point after I posted in here last.

    I've been through several mice since then.

    G500
    G400
    Razer Deathadder Black Edition
    CM Storm Spawn

    The G500 is super comfortable and I liked all the settings and how it stored them directly on the mouse so I didn't have to run the setpoint software all the time. On the downside there's some positive/negative acceleration depending on settings and mousing surface. It's also significantly heavier than most mice. I couldn't get quite used to it. It's the most comfortable palm grip mouse out there though.

    The G400 has a good sensor and has some nice settings but IMO it's just not as comfortable as the a lot of others. The lighter weight is good but the shape slopes off too sharply on the right hand side of the mouse and my hand ends up contorting kind of weird, and the buttons aren't as wide as I've gotten used to and I sometimes miss presses on the right mouse button. If you're an MX518 fan though, this is the perfect replacement. It's pretty much identical just with an updated optical sensor.

    The DeathAdder is quite easily the best mouse of its style out there. It's easily the smoothest most accurate sensor of any palm grip designed mouse I've ever used. Razer really did it right with this one from a driver/sensor standpoint. My first complaint is that the click on the scrollwheel is stiff, even after a couple of months of constant use. It hasn't made me miss clicks or anything, but my My biggest complaint though, and this is kind of a theme, is that I wish it was lighter. My hands are fairly large and I have longer thinner fingers, so I do a lot of small movements with just my fingers and most larger movements with just my wrist. I tend not to move my arm from the elbow much the way a lot of people do. My palm typically only ever touches mice at the base of my palm and the very back of the mouse, and the rest of my hand ends up arched which eventually gets uncomfortable. If I could get this mouse's internals and software but with the G500's outer shell and the ability to store the settings on the mouse, but lighter weight, I would have what I consider the perfect mouse.

    So that leads me to the CM Storm Spawn, which is the best mouse I've ever used. It's super lightweight. The sensor has no prediction or acceleration and tracks just as smoothly as the Deathadder. It stores your settings in memory on the mouse itself just like the G500 does. The sides of the mouse are these awesome grippy rubber pads, not a rubber coating that might at some point wear off like on the Deathadder but actual decently thick rubber pads. The click on the scroll wheel is lighter than the Deathadder. The contoured ring finger rest shaped into the mouse is awesome. It's just about the perfect mouse for me. If you grip your mouse mostly with your finger tips and don't so much palm it, or ever wanted a smaller lighter weight mouse, I think this is the best one on the market. It's also cheap compared to most gaming mice. I got mine for $32.

    Hmmm, while at a different Best Buy near my office, saw the G700 wireless gaming mouse:
    http://www.logitech.com/en-us/gaming/mice-keyboard-combos/devices/wireless-gaming-mouse-g700

    Although when I read the reviews, see a fair number of complaints about battery life (at best a few days if you're a heavy gamer). You can play with the USB recharging cord attached, but I still have nightmares of when my wireless gaming mice would run dead on juice in the middle of a game a few years ago.

    It has 3 tiny buttons to the left of the LMB, and then 4 distinct nub buttons on the mouse's left side. The shape's fairly close to the classic MX518, maybe a bit taller cause it has to have room for batteries.

    I haven't really made up my mind about my G300 yet. I wish it was a little bigger. For some things in SWTOR it seems to work better, and I appreciate the extra buttons. On some other things, it feels weird (as a "symmetrical" mouse, which I'm not used to anymore) and just a smidgen too small. I way more often run into problems with mice being too big and causing hand/finger strain, and have often returned new mice for that reason.

    btw, Perfect World/Cryptic as a promotion e-mailed all players/past players (I think?) a promo code they can use to save 35% off any Logitech mouse or keyboard. The MSRP at Logitech's site isn't always that great though (Best Buy carried that illuminated keyboard I got for $10 less), so I don't know for sure if it would save much over Amazon, buy.com etc.

    I just tried a Microsoft Touch Mouse. I wish it had a bigger curve, but for Windows use it's fantastic.

    For gaming? The Habu is still preferred. I'd consider getting a cyborg rat or something a little different, but I also don't want to break the bank.

    I have no interest in a wireless mouse for gaming.

    I'm using a Mionix Naos 3200

    I used it once at a relative's house and then ordered one as soon as I got home.

    Best mouse I've ever used.
