I cant comment on any of those because I've never used them. Have you considered any of logitech's gaming mice? I use the G5 and absolutely love it.

I put that down in one of my options but i need some exprience advice who have used the mices. Was thinking of trying out a new mouse the roccat as i havent used that brand of mouse before.

Plus im a fps gamer and it reviews optical / infrared is used more for the sort of gaming i do so i guess its either between deathadder and roccat? unless anyone else has exprience with lazer mices with the Logitech G500 which is the newest of logitech brand.

The G500 is actually the new version of the G5, supposedly the G5 will be discontinued soon.

I myself have tried the razoe and didnt like it, but I stick with the logitech mx518.

I have tried the Razor Copperhead, and it was just too radical for my liking.
I have tried the Razor Lachasis, and that was a complete piece of junk. Can't believe they actually designed something so uncomfortable.
I tried the Microsoft Habu and liked it alot.
I have also tried the Razor Death Adder and liked it alot.
I realized the reason I liked the Habu and the Death Adder was because they were the most similar to trusty G5. I sold all the Razors and went back to my G5. I will go back to ebay to find some new old stock and get another too (the old rust colored one) b4 I would bother to try anything else new. No use bothering with anyhting else. I gave them a try and always went back to the G5.

Razer Diamondback i reckon is the best Bang for your buck, I love mine. More sensitive than a G9 if i want it to be and somewhat comfy as well :)

Personally I would say the most important thing is how it feels in your hand.

But then again I don't perform anybetter with a gaming mouse than I do with my mx revolution.

Ive had my G5 for a couple of years now. I like it :)

It has withstood the test of time quite nicely. (maybe too much time.. :rolleyes: )

I have it custom weighted of course heh. It is a touch too big for my hand, but I have adapted.. My hands are a touch small.. But not in a creepy way :D

I do wish it had a button to page forward for internet explorer. But at least it has one to page back.. The new ones have what Im looking for. But the price for just 1 button is not worth it for me to buy it again heh.

Used a G5 for about 2 years until the G500 came out. I HIGHLY recommend the G500. It has a great button layout and fits my hand like no other mouse has.

I have been using a Razer Diamondback 3G for nearly a year, I have now been given a G9 and its much better than the Razer. The microgear wheel is a lot better for selecting weapons in a rush and it glides accross my mouse mat twice as easy as the Razer. +1 for the G9
