Good budget gaming mouse?

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to find a good budget (<$50) gaming mouse to replace my wireless mouse. I've been looking at the logitech mx518, and it looks pretty good for the price. Any other suggestions?

Look around for the Razer Death Adder, usually found around $50. I will ninja edit a link if I can find one in your price range. Long cord too if you miss wireless too much.
No complaints about Razer's mice (except my Mamba's laser dies occasionally after I dropped it 4 feet and had to fix it).

Wired or wireless? I use the CM Storm sentential and its pretty nice.
Also have the Razer Mamba Wireless but i wouldn't reccomend that.
You can never go wrong with Logitech though.

Don't get the mamba. i RMAed it. THREE TIMES.

Yes well its true. my mamba literally fell apart into 3 peices and i hardly used it.

I would just go with logitech, you can't go wrong with that.

I can't vouch for keyboards, but I would buy a Razer mouse over and over. Headsets, not so much.... Mousepads are also awesome. Never had a complaint about my Mamba or Destructor mousepad since I have owned them for a year now, except for the falling off my bed part... (silly frictionless mousepad)


@ iCrap Thats funny, when I took apart my Mamba it only had a shell and components............

I personally use the mx518 and can not see myself using any other gaming mouse. Even the setpoint software is pretty nice.

Razer mice are great, just avoid the mouse pads.
