there was a mouse made by logitech that i wanted to try, a gaming mouse that you can press a button and it would zoom in whatever game, and also slow mouse movement.

i like logitech and MS mice (older ms mice). next time i get a mouse, its going to be that logitech mx1000 laser mouse.

the mouse i use, is a microsoft intellithing-or-another ... wireless version 2, its supposed to be the "really good" one, i have so many problems with the wireless reception its pissing me off, however a few of my friends have the same one and they dont have a problem with it

however, if i were you, i would get something with a rechargable battery so you dont have to worry about replacing batteries, actually logitech makes some very nice mouses, and very very fast refresh rate or w/e, so they will definately be good for games, you dont really have to settle for the mx1000, the only reason you wouldnt is b/c of the price, but any logitech wireless optical is pretty good

I consider Razer to be the be all end all in computer mice. Best quality i've EVER used, including some super high end mice at some lan parties in Rome.



This is generally considered the best gaming mouse on the market for high speed games such as FPS games. 1ms response time 4 extra buttons only $60

^^^ tried it. meh. and its corded.

mostly marketing hype. i can be straight murderous on FPS with a ball mouse. i prefer optical wireless mice because there is no cord to snag when im trying to tag someone, and no rollers to gunk up that can effect your game.

the one thing that is nice about razers is the weights.

so anyway, i was just saying that my next mouse is going to be a mx1000 (next to a logitech dinovo) and i just like that because its rechargable, has a base station, a few thumb buttons, a battery indicator, it contours into my hand, and its got freakin laser beams! haha.

I have an optical, my dad bought a laser, frankly, they are both the same to me.... just make sure you feel them first, my dad's mouse feels "odd" to me

Look no Further!

If you want a real mouse that wont crap out at you when you need it most dont get the wireless!

Wired is much better than wireless since your dont have to worry about batterys going out.

I chose this one it's the top of the line at a retail price of $69.00 but im sure u can get it on ebay or somthing for a bit less.
Logitech® G5 Laser Mouse
P/N: 931376-0403

Adjust the weight and balance to win your game! The Logitech G5 Laser Mouse gives you the edge with a 2000 dpi laser engine sending out an astounding 500 USB reports per second* for precision response at blinding speeds.

2000 dpi laser engine
An ultra-high resolution engine churns images at an astounding 6.4 megapixels per second. A massive (30-pixel by 30-pixel) sensor array and precision laser technology provides best-in-class performance and tracking.

The G5 provides instant access to three sensitivity levels— 400 dpi, 800 dpi, and 2000 dpi—before driver installation. Shift from pixel-precise targeting to fast-twitch maneuvers, without pausing the action.

Adjustable weight cartridge
Adjust the G5s weight and balance (up to 36 grams) for the control you need to dominate the competition.

Polytetrafluoroethylene gaming feet
Forget sticky workarounds—the G5's durable polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) feet give the ultra-smooth glide you want in a gaming mouse.

hey guys,

thanks for all the help! i ended up going with the Logitch G7 its pretty nice, its laser and wireless, it also comes with 2 rechargable batt packs that can be swaped any time (means no down time) and it has a few extra buttons on it. cant wait to get it in the mail!

BTW if u are looking for ANYTHING comp related make sure u check out www.tigerdirect.com awsome site..... im only paying 17$ for the mouse once i get a 30$ rebate plus a 15$ coupon for buying something from them before!
