But have a look at the logitech g400 aswell.

Bringing this back from page 95 or so since I never did replace my Microsoft WMO. How durable are the Logitech G400's buttons? I damaged my Deathadder's right mouse button by playing Sleeping Dogs (counter attacks) and my WMO's left mouse now double clicks every now and then. I was looking at the Zowie FK but that wasn't available on Amazon a few months back.

1. Kinda mix of a fingertip claw I guess, I hold the mouse at a 45 degree angle

2. Low sensitivity, usually in game lower it to a 1

3. preferably around $50 max

4. I want at least 2 side buttons preferably one on each side rather than 2 on one side

5. mostly strategy, RPGs, a few FPSs like TF2 and CSS and STALKER games

6. Never noticed if I had it or not, mice I've used: Intellimouse 1.1, Logitech MX310, Logitech Anywhere mouse

7. Would really prefer an ambidextrous mouse with at least 5 buttons and what I said before, a button on each side rather than 2 on one.

I was first looking at a Steelseries Kana, then to the sensei RAW, then was advised against them because of the acceleration(my last two mice had some acceleration but I just tried playing a bit with the acceleration turned off with the anywhere mouse and it was actually a little better)

Then looked to Zowie AM or FK, love the shape but they're a bit overpriced it seems and also saw that while it has buttons on both sides, you can only use one side at once which is rather incredibly stupid. Is there no way to enable all the buttons?

Just saw the that Genius Maurus mouse, and this http://www.amazon.com/CM-Storm-Recon-Optical-Multicolor/dp/B009JZ04BC/ref=pd_sim_sbs_pc_4
Cooler Master Storm Recon. Both the right price good shape(don't like the wings on the genius or the blockiness of either) but haven't looked into them much, are the sensors good?

Forgot my main thing, I'm sick of having to buy a new mouse every damn year so I really want a mouse that isn't going to break in some way right after a year. From what I understand Logitech mice have persistent left click issues.

1. Grip Style: Claw/Fingertip hybrid. My index finger rests in similar fashion to the fingertip posture, but the rest of my fingers lay in a more traditional claw pattern. Only the base of my palm rests on the mouse and I hold it with the mouse pointed at roughly an eleven o'clock position.

2. Sensitivity: I find myself most comfortable with 800 DPI, though I've also used the 1200 DPI setting from time to time.

3. Budget: Some of you may find it laughable, but I'd like this to land within the vicinity of $25-$30 maximum. The job market is tough in this region and I cannot afford to throw around large sums. As it stands spending that much makes me cringe a tad.

4. Additional Button(s): Not at all a necessity. Left click, right click and clickable scroll-wheel are all I require. Anything further is neither a pro or con.

5. Games: First Person Shooters, Third Person Shooters, Adventure, Real-Time and Turn-Based Strategy, Action and Turn-Based RPG.

6. Prediction: Preferred not to have it, but if the mouse has the option to turn it off the difference is negligible.

7. Other Information: **Important ** I would request that the mouse recommended be available on Amazon if possible, as I have a small sum of gift card balance remaining from a prior purchase ** Important ** A cable in the neighborhood of six feet or so would be appreciated, but with the inexpensive purchasing price of USB extensions, I will refrain from being a stickler on that point. If it is of any help I am right handed, so a non-ambidextrous right handed model would be acceptable. Above most aspects I would like for it to be somewhat sturdy. My last mouse, an OCZ Equalizer, ran me fifteen dollars at the time and lasted me a solid five years. My hands are rather large in nature and I am somewhat fond of heavier mice.

I've toyed around with the thought of an E-Blue Mazer Type-R, as I've heard good things of them from word of mouth. The perfect mouse I do not seek, nor even one worthy of mention to others. At the end of the day I just wish to know that I made the right decision in my price range. However I am quite sure you gentlemen are more knowledgeable in regards to what that mouse might be than I. 'Tis in your hands that I leave my decision, if you would be so kind as to help me. Thank you for your time and patience.

1. What's your grip style?
Palm grip

2. What's your sensitivity?
Don't know... I hear 800 is good for gaming?

3. What's your maximum budget?
None, I just want a basic gaming mouse for a very reasonable price

4. Do you want additional buttons?
No, not necessary

5. What games do you play?
FPS, RPG, MMO

6. Do you mind about prediction?
No... its not a good feature for gaming, right?

7. Other relevant information:
A long while ago I started a thread on a budget gaming mouse. I was going to jump for the E-Blue Cobra, but I don't like flashy lights on mice... and I absolutely hate that they won't turn off even with PC switched off. Many on the thread have strongly recommended the Logitech G400. Looked that up, however a retail price of $50 on Ebay put me off... gave up looking for a mouse for a while...

Decided to start looking again. I came across the Logitech MX518, which happens to be the G400's older brother. Half the price at $25. Good buy? What about the Razer Abyssus Mirror Edition? They retail for around $18 on Ebay. Any other ideas?... MX310? Or is that too old?

I just want a plain good basic gaming mouse, nothing fancy... $50 for a mouse is absolutely outrageous IMO!

EDIT: I suppose my mouse description pretty much matches that of SharksFan above... count me in on his post.

@ SharksFan

 

Maybe this: Anker 4000 Currently 26$ (edit: unknown sensor)

 

It's big. Problem might be room for the ring finger at the side, dunno.

 

Or  TT Saphira, no risk with ring finger i think. It's shorter but you probably can't use the Anker's side's front anyway.It used a good sensor. Problems i see is wether its' 800dpi are native or not, and it has prediction.

 

 

@ Forde 3654Eire

 

Yes maybe MX 518 if you're fine with laying your ring finger on top as this retailer on ebay is describing (also depends on the fingers width i'm guessing).  But It has prediction.

 

Or maybe the Anker.

Alright sounds good! I really don't know if prediction is a good thing or not... but I suppose the MX518 being a popular gaming mouse speaks for itself. Due to the MX 518 / MX 310 being a bit dated, will either one have problems with Windows 7, or will they be fine?

The Anker is a recent mouse, don't know about driver problems. And i've never read about the MX 518 not functioning well on Windows 7. I can't talk for or against prediction.

1. What's your grip style?
Somewhere between claw and fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?
Not really sure, around 1500 i think

3. What's your maximum budget?
$90 if the mouse lasts long enough

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Would be nice but not a necessity

5. What games do you play?
Mostly mmos, a couple of shooter and rts, nothing pro level or anything

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not to sure about that, only used a cheap microsoft wireless, and my dieing deathadder

7. Other relevant informations: I'm looking for a new mouse because me deathadder left click started having issues after only a yea and a half of casual use, so im looking for something that will last and has a good reputation.
I am currently looking at the corsair m65/95 and the g600, but im open for other suggestions.
Thanks for your input

M95 or G600 is the mouse for you my friend. Perfect for claw grip.
