depends on products, but logitech is hailed for its customerservice if youre mice dies you can send it back and get right a new one.
Roccat had with earlier mice the problem with the scroll wheel but they fixed it in there newer mice.

I would say dont look at the brand rather the product wink.gif

Go to a store and try out shapes till you find one or two you like, afterwards maybe come back here and read some info about them wink.gif.

As much as i appreciate you putting your faith into a brand i still belive that if your serious about gaming you need to try the mice first.

In my experience, you are generally not able to take a certain brand and say they make superior products to another brand. I think both Logitech and Razer have released some really great products. But they have also both released some truly horrible ones.

You need to look at their specific products and ask for feedback on them if you actually want some meaningful responses.

Logitech's current best mouse is generally seen as the G400.

For razer this is probably the deathadder.

Neither are the companies flagship model or the mouse they have that has the most features or anything like that. But gamers love them for their optical sensor , which is more reliable and accurate than that of most of the competition. And people also like them because their general shape seems to fit a lot of hands well.

In the case of the G400, another selling point for a lot of people is the idea that it is durable. However, that reputation is mostly due to the durability of the MX518 before it.

Logitech is generally more reliable. But yes, you need to look at particular products.

G400 felt (subjective!) pretty low quality when I look back on my G500 or MX518. And be aware G400 has a thin mouse cord. One of the reasons I never really liked Razer mice, even though DeathAdder ergonomics are just great. But yeah, I dislike glossy sides, so, DA wasn't an option for me at all. Savu (especially coating) feels right. I don't mind either vcsel or ir/red led, I look on ergonomics first. 9500 (Xai, G500)/9800 (none yet) doesn't hurt me too much cuz of their so called "accel issues", I mean I'm not hyper sensitive to that. On the other hand my Savu is a very good mouse considering tracking, coating, weight, functionality, quality feeling overall. However, I'm thinking about replacing it with a Kone Pure because I feel it could turn more comfortable for extended gaming sessions and I always want the new **** *lol*

Back to topic. As kazuya stated all brands have good and not so good stuff. You can't really judge because of one or two products. And if you don't like what you get, send it back and get a replacement. Damn, I should have become philosopher...

My study is littered with pet mice. Rat MMO, Sidewinders, Naga, Naga Epic, Naga Hexx, Logitech G500, G7, G600, Roccat Kone, Kone +, Kone XTD...

The Kone XTD is excellent. It has been my primary mouse for FPS (COD and ArmA3) and MMO (STO) for a whole month. Now, I have used Kone and Kone+ before, and had been wary of durability concerns of the scroll wheel for those products, but never personally had any problems with them. I always found Roccat to be very comfortable, ergonomical. About two years ago, I went to Razer as I used Naga Epic for everyday use and then a year ago, defected to Logitech G600 because it was simply a superior, more comfortable Naga wit an advanced sensor. So, its full circle again going to Kone XTD.

The Easy Shift is rather genius, somewhat duplicated by Logitech for their G600. My issue with Logitech is that in my MMOs, their was a consistent inexplicable lag to execute macros properly that did note exist in the Kone XTD. Coupled with the Omron switches and the new 4-Direction scroll wheel, I would expect the XTD to last until I choose to replace it... perhaps with a colored XTD?

Anyway, the mouse market is dynamic. Try the mouse you are interested in because the experience of how it feels in your hand cannot be quantified, or if unable (i.e. Roccat only found through online vendors like Newegg and Amazon, but now the elite custom boutique PC maker, Origin, is endorsing and offering Roccat peripherals too), read as many reviews as you can and ask questions on forums. Everyone is different... and when magnified by different experiences, the opinions can be quite varied.
