    Experience with Razer mice

    Well, I was lookin here at the Razer Diamond Back Plasma L.E here and it looks really sick and has some crazy specs. Bad part is its about 50 $$$. I have had my M$ InteliMouse Optical for like uhh what 4 years now, and it works well still and have gotten attached to it but I kinda decided its time to get a new one because that mouse is the center of attention at LAN partys as the most "ghetto" POS they have seen. Ok well I don't like my stuff called ghetto etc even though it is, so I went home lookin for mice. So I find this Razer, ahh perfect crazy performance and I am diggin the "plasma," would match my glowy keyboard well. I want the mouse but cant justify spending 50 for it so anyone had any experience with this series and is it really worth the 50 dollars?

    Yes, it is worth the $50.

    The other option is the MX518

    The Plasma Limited Edition is no different than the other Diamondback mice, save a few aesthetic features. If you do want that particular blue mouse, however, you'll need to pre-order and wait in line

    yeah, you can only pre-order the plasma edition.

    i wouldnt say there are no differences, there is a chance it uses a new version of the optical sensor that fixes a slight glitch (a pixel skip when you change directions). it also uses an IR LED, which could be either good or bad.

    They're identical

    the optical sensor change is very slight, and wouldnt really be worth mentioning. its essentially an identical chip spec wise, and the only performance difference is the pixel skip. it is also an IR instead of a normal LED, which is a difference in my book
