Hello! This is my first post- in fact I created my account specifically to ask this question. I need help getting a mouse.
I know very little about PC gaming; I have only recently converted after my disappointment with the XBox One.
Anyways, here are the mice I was looking at:

http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-mice/razer-naga
The Razer Naga. At first; I was almost sure this was the mouse I wanted. I love the design, the lights, and especially the buttons. But, I have recently been seeing some customers reporting issues with double-clicking? It seems like the problem is occasionally fixable. However, I would very much appreciate any feedback from anyone who owns or has owned the Naga. Tell me if you have experienced the double click, and about the quality of this mouse. (keep in mind I'm not getting the original blue naga. I'm either getting the molten or the 2013 edition).
NOTE: also, please help decide if I should get the 2013 edition or the Molten edition.

http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-mice/razer-deathadder#
The Razer Deathadder. This mouse seems like it has very few if any hardware/software issues. It is cheaper than the Naga (and the other ones I'm looking at) but after looking at the Naga I feel like I would be disappointed without the 12 macro buttons. This only has 2 (are they macro or just programmable?). It does seem like a very solid, comfortable,reliable, quality, mouse. I think I would be happy with this mouse, but again it seems like I'm just not fulfilling myself by not getting a bunch of buttons. As I have been researching these mice, and playing games in between, I have thought of all the macros and functions I would set up and then when I consider getting the Deathadder I feel a little sad. Again, I would greatly appreciate any feedback who owns or has owned the Deathadder. I am unaware of any issues with this mouse, so PLEASE let me know if you have experienced any (keep in mind I'm getting 2012 edition).

That's it for Razer... and I know there is quite a bit of controversy surrounding the quality of their peripherals. I cannot comment on the quality because I have NEVER owned a Razer product.
One thing I have noticed is that most arguments against razer are not supported by actual feedback- they're just things like "razer is *****" and stuff like that without an actual comment. **I'm not saying I don't believe these comments. I currently have no strong opinion either way regarding the quality of razer other than account of my good friend's brother; who owns the original Deathadder and loves it. He's a pretty serious gamer and I would think that if Razer was that bad he would have transitioned from it by now.

Next: Logitech G600.
This thing is the antivenom of the Razer Naga! They are almost equal except for some small differences. The main ones being the ring finger button and the different lighting. **I personally am obsessed the way these mice glow; it fascinates me and I think it is a cool feature that adds atmosphere to your desk. This mouse only lights up on the macro buttons, which is less than the Naga (macro buttons, scroll wheel, razer logo). However, this mouse has customization for the color and lighting mode. So the lighting is tied. Anyways, I feel like I wouldn't use the ring finger button at all, I think I would hit it accidentally too much. I would most likely disable it and just use it as a rest. Also, I have heard of people having window jumping issues with this. Once more, please gimme feedback from anyone who owns this or has owned it. Tell me if the ring finger button is easy to hit accidently, and if you experience window jumping issues.

Finally, this. I have done very little research on this, however I can see the buttons. There are less here than on the Naga or G600, but more than the deathadder. Although, it IS more expensive than all except the Naga 2013 on Amazon. I think this is because of aluminum body? Also, this mouse's lighting is pretty lame. Not a breaker, kind of a disappointment. Of course, anyone who owns this or has owned this please give me feedback. Does the button config work? Is the aluminum worth it?

I would appreciate any help, even if you do not own any of these mice. Also, if you know of any other MMO mice under $100 you think I might like please let me know.

I have the Naga 2012 and I like it. I've had it ~ 6 months and have had no issues thus far. I liked having the swappable side grips, since I wasn't really sure which grip style I'd be using with a nice mouse and my palms are average size, but my fingers are above average length.

If you don't really want the interchangeable grips, and you like how the molten looks then go with that. They are both essentially the same mouse. I like the braided cord. I've seen how some people don't like the position of the "forward" and "back" buttons below the scroll wheel, but I honestly don't mind it at all. I use a fingertip grip most of the time and I think that makes it easier to use the forward and back buttons.

The Naga mice also have their own software which is not needed for operation. Everything considered, I enjoy the Naga 2012 and haven't had any problems.

Thanks for your input. I have another question, do you get the razer warranty if you order from amazon or get it at best buy?

I have watched that smile.gif thank you. Are you saying that this video is going against the naga though? Because, really, it's not. These people simply recommend the G600.

What games do you play? Makes a huge difference. Best thing would be to check the "mouse suggestion thread" and the infos we'd require from you. Answer those and people here can help you.

I really think the lighting on mice is cool and I would like one with some cool lights. Also: not necessary but something I would like is the rubberized coating.

Hm, I'm not really experienced with high sens needs and many button mice. You are basically limited to MMO mice then (like the ones you suggested).

I think the most deciding factor here should be your feel of the mouse (how good it feels in your hand) as all the other stats that users recommend mice by usually relate to sensor performance which should be pretty similar between all MMO mice I know. But I think we have a few people here who own the mice you asked for, just wait to get more recommendations from them.
