Not a hard core Gamer but do play primarily FPS`s. Two of the COD series & Bad Company Battlefield 2.

What`s a good mouse? Read reviews, now I`d like some hands on suggestions from those of you with hands on. :lol:
Also see some specialized mouse pads aimed at Gamers too. Anyone use one. Are they worth it? <_<

TIA :thumbup2:

I definitely recommend the MX518 mouse. I've had mine for nearly two and a half years, and it's going strong. It's a reasonably priced gaming mouse.

Thanks for your recommendation.

What makes a gaming mouse a gaming mouse? In other words, why is it so much better than a normal mouse?

Thanks Vaerli. Had been looking at that same mouse. Seem`s a good blend between form\function\cost.

A Gaming mouse is different things to different people.

In general, they are liter. Multiple buttons, 3 to 5. Have seen some with more. They will have a high DPI = dots per inch = how much the cursor moves per inch of mouse movement. The accuracy at which the cursor moves to a spot on the screen. Also, they should be made a bit tougher. Gamer`s, in particular FSP or other action oriented games can take a toll on in particular the left mouse button.
Some have micros that can create profiles = certain buttons always perform the same action in a particular game.

Some even go as far as attempting to make them ergonomically correct. Considering all the different hand sizes out there, making a one size fits all mouse is a bit hard to do. I have large hands and my pinkie always seems to get left out when it comes to a place to comfortably rest it.

Have you considered the Logitech Performance Mouse MX?
Comfortable, highly customizable, and can be used while charging.

It also has the ability to switch between 2 adjustable DPI settings, with a downward push of the thumb.

If you're interested in screenshots of all of the possible settings, just let me know.

The mouse pad I use: ZOWIE P-TF "SpawN" Cloth e-SPORT
Large, tough, comfortable, non-slip, easy to clean (damp cloth), and works great with my mouse.
Got it from NewEgg, but it's been deactivated.
This one is $5 cheaper than what I paid. :)

I've had both for a year, and have experienced no problems.

i had the G7 and now the G500 both cost alot but will worth it i had the G7 for 5 or so years but sadly it started to die last year *the mouse wheel would move on its own* but the left click never failed me. i had got alot of other mice i would use them for a few months the paint would rub off on the left click botton *diablo 2* but the G series of mice are the best that iv had. i have problems with my hands they hurt if i use a "normal" mouse for 15minits or so but with my G500 mouse i can play for how ever long i want and it dosen't bother me at all.

People have probably said it, but it is all PREFERENCE.

Numbers don't mean everything, and are there to sway you.

High DPI, while I prefer it, is not the best in all cases. Most hardcore gamers will actually advise that a LOWER DPI mouse and a LARGE mousepad will make for more accurate movements, which is probably true. In any case, I have found that razer mice are very effective, although a tad expensive. I use a lachesis, which is ambidextrous, so it might feel off, but I like it, and do very well with it.

Oh I have to agree with this. I just broke mine after 31 months of heavy use. Just went out and purchased yet another one. Trust me I use the hell out of mine. Can't go wrong with this. And just FYI, my cord went bad. Probably form me getting very angry at getting sniped out of a helicopter at my base lol

Im boring, I use a basic logitech cordless mouse. I don't like the fancy mice with buttons going everywhere, I like simple, professional looking and long lasting-and the simpler they are the longer the last. Here is my mouse, couldnt remember the model number but this is it (just a slightly lighter shade of grey)
