It all depends on your preferences. I myself have a Logitech G5 mouse and after a steep learning curve (had a generic optical mouse prior), I really like it. Though it does have one flaw, I have found the scroll wheel is very akward and messes me up a lot when I need to scroll it precisely (in games such as Counter-Strike or Battlefield 2) and because the wheel can also tilt left and right, pressing it down to middle click sometimes ends up registering as scrolling up or down instead. I don't know all the different brands of gaming quality mice, but I know logitech has a couple of gaming mice. My friend has the Logitech MX518 and likes it.

I did a quick search for you on IGN.com and by looking through the search results, you should find multiple products that were reviewed.

Hope this helps,

Wizdabest

*edit* - Also, as for the quality of gaming mice, take my mouse for example. The grip isn't bad and the feet on the bottom are nice and slide well on the desk. The laser is MUCH better than regular optical mice and I've never experienced the annoying 'mouse jump' that I used to get when I played Counter-Strike (where if you do a quick movement or tap the mouse, it'll register in the game as turning really fast and your character will spin non-stop till you mess with the mouse again). Also, the laser registers on any surface I've tried it on, even plastic sheets, my clothes, and the hair on top of my head. It can also switch it's DPI (sensitivity) on the fly in three preset settings or with software, three defined settings, which is great in a game such as America's Army where if you look through the binoculars, the sensitivity gets lowered and on the fly DPI settings will get around that.

Is there any wireless signal problems with the G7? I haven't read a review on it, but I'm just curious to know. I went with the G5 just because it was like half the price and I didn't want to bother with any wireless troubles.

I have been using the mx 518 for a while now, it's been a pretty solid mouse indeed. It's not a laser, but a high-res optical; it goes up to 1600x. Compared to my 400x conventional optical mice, well, there is no comparison! For me, in the end it came down to how well it felt in my hand rather than laser vs optical...since the g5 resolution was only a bit higher.

Yea, it's like 1600 dpi vs 2000 dpi. I rarely even use the setpoint software anyway and just stick to the default on-the-fly settings anyway. At least you get another button, though I get to add little weights to my G5 lol.

Well, because the G5 is heavier than the the cheap mice (such as the Dell ones for example), I don't have any weights in my G5. I also don't put any in there because it puts more strain on the wrists. . . heh, joint pain and here I am majoring in visual communication and play video games heavily.

well you already got your mouse, but for anyone else, I've been using the Kensington PilotMouse and I just set the side buttons to right-click and double-click (respectivley) and the right-click button to middle click and the scroll for scrolling. I think its a really comforable mouse, the only thing is the right-click button only works sometimes and the grips on the sides are falling off. Than again, I've had this mouse for over 2 years and I use almost everyday for quite the amount of time. As for teh weights, well the mouse itself is pretty weighted, good enough for what I need it and i just leave 2 pairs of recharchable AAs around and when the ones in the mouse die, i swap out real fast for the charged ones and then I charge the dead ones. It works well :thumbsup:
