I put my vote out there for Razer Naga.

I never used to really use a gaming mouse, but decided to get one ready for Guild Wars 2 and give it a try. The buttons on the side really have changed the way I play, and has somewhat made MMO gaming easier for me. Highly recommend a Naga.

MX 518 was so pro.  I was very sad to see it go.  Used it through multiple CAL tourneys and it never let me down.  Just so solid.  I am using a G400 right now because its closest I could find to the same form factor.

Tried the Naga, the feel is so cheap. I know some really like it but it was a very bad experience for me. Very uncomfortable and response just isn't there IMHO. Started getting some wacky double click bug in the middle of a scrim. Now its just sitting in the box in my closet with less than 20hrs game play.

Going to switch to the g9x this weekend.  Tried it out for a few hours. Super comfortable. Flatter than the G400 but I think its going to be much nicer for longer game play.

Only thing I can tell you is my personal experience and for me its really no comparison.

I'm using a Death Adder Right now and I'm very happy with it. Braided cord, led matches my pc case and keyboard. Five buttons is more than enough for me. Only thing I don't like is the soft-touch finish, that's going to wear off some day.

I can't stand logitech products. I hate the logo, They don't really jive with the PC i built.

I debated between getting a naga, but instead just kept my old logitech mouse with five buttons and the razer nostromo keypad and it seems to work out well. Now I don't have to worry about reaching for all those 6-0 keys or weird key rebinding. =)

I was considering buying a Razer Naga(Pretty much just because they look nice), but after reading some reviews I saw that they broke after a relatively short life-span, and that Razer's customer service is terrible.
One guy said the replacement mouse he got when he sent his back was a heavily-used, heavily scratched, dirty, sticky mess.

Right now I'm using a pretty basic Microsoft mouse.
I have no idea where I got it, but I've had it for years and I have no latency with it. Standard three clicks, mouse wheel, laser, etc.

I recommend being careful choosing if you're fingertip or clawgrip. I bought a naga and didn't like it, just gave me a sore thumb. Then got a logitech G300 and it rocks. I am a fingertip grip (or claw grip, I dunno, my usually palm doesn't otuch the mouse), and the G300 seems built for it - all buttons on top, none on the sides.

I just bought the G600, and so far its in an improvement over my Naga, the side buttons feel easier to reach, the mouse fits my hand better. I really like this new mouse, gonna test it in DCUO for a bit, but all in all, its a nice mouse. I did notice someting about the Naga, that is, I have the older, smaller model. When I went to Best Buy to pick the G600, the Naga there was bigger than the one  i have  at home. It was simaliar in size to the G600. So if you're saying that you think that the Naga is to small you may have the first one that came out .

All I can say about Logitech is: Only get (new) Logitech (mice) if you plan on getting a new mouse in a year.

They seem to have a persistent problem with microswitches wearing out well before they should, resulting in the mouse double-clicking while you're only single clicking. It's really, really, really annoying... Trust me, I have the G700 at the moment, and it does just that. :(

I've used a good number of Logitech mice over the years, and I've only ever had one of them do this to me.  That one was an old, low-end mouse that I used for maybe 3-4 years straight before it finally wore down as you say.

So, while I won't say it can't happen, or that it doesn't, in my experience it's a fairly limited issue.


That said, I'm currently using a G700 as my mouse as well.  I really like the button placement, they are all easy to hit and have a very obvious feel to them, so there isn't any question as to which button you're hitting.

Its side panels are also a lovely textured plastic which is really great for people with clammy hands like me.

And the wireless/wired option is very nice to have.  Personally I just leave it wired all the time (don't have enough USB slots to leave the cord + receiver plugged in at the same time), but if I wanted to take it somewhere, I can just leave the cord where it is at.

That said, I do wish it were just a little bit bigger.  But then again, I have large hands and also like to palm grip, which basically means that anything short of a trackball is probably too small for me. :(
