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,
*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.
