i love razer mice, either the copperhead or the diamondback are great value for money. both have on-the-fly sensitivity adjust and have lots of buttons to program/add macros too

The Optical was rated better than the Laser in most reviews, fyi.

The absolutely best mouse on the market for gaming is the Deathadder. It doesn't matter if you're a high or low sens gamer, the Deathadder is the best you can get for performance. It does have on-the-fly DPI adjusting, but the control is under the mouse (you can reach it with your thumb), which prevents accidental clicks.

Highly recommend that - advise you to stay away from laser mice as a thumb rule.

For microsoft the intelli 1.1 and above are by far great for people who dont want fancy gizmos but still wanna game with supreme aim, it is used by many cs pros, Id say half of them use it. I persoanlly used it as well, but alas I want my gizmos and want change lol, but i highly recommend it ecspeacily if you are looking to go cheap and not lose quality.

It depends really. The Laser is generally more precise...but yeah, it jumps.

The optical is supposed to track slightly better at very high speeds.
Its only a tiny difference from what I have heard.
The Laser is better on more surfaces and is generaly more acurate.

I will never use another mouse for gaming.
However I use my G9 for desktop work and gaming at night when my girlfriend is asleep.
The Ikari has loud clicky buttons and a loud scroll wheel.

i own a Microsoft comfort keyboard 3000+mouse combo, its cheap, its very ergonomic(both the keyboard and mouse) although it only have 2 extra buttons. Atlast it really improved my COD4 and CS, i would recommend the newer bluetooth own though as its alot more sensitive and better for gaming

Why would you go with the lachesis? Its awful!
I don't see many negatives in it. The Sidewinder looks pretty good. SO MANY CHOICES LOL.

The Ikari is expensive...

I've used both the G3 and most recently the G9. I have come to love the G9 on a Rat padz mouse surface. I haven't used any of the other brands for more than a few minutes at a disply at fry's, but in that short span of time I wasn't very impressed. I chose the g9 and am happy that I did. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to you. The only thing I wish it had was more custom sized shells for sale. I also dig the adjustable weight idea, except I'm not very good at making the connection between weight and my gameplay so...

In short: don't go with the wannabe's, stick with what we all know works: A logitech.



.ps. the adjustable DPI is awesome, it has low, med, hi, ultra sensitivity settings which are great for any game, TF2 comes to mind, switching modes as a sniper for greater responsiveness or to slow my aim down so as not to miss my target. I don't know how much the logitech software can add to the sensitivity adjustability because I don't use it, no need

My 3 year old Logitech MX510 still does the job, I've no plans to change it as it's great for gaming and general net surfing and very comfortable to use.

Go for the G9 and install the drivers.

You can set ANY of the buttons as macros or anything else your would need. You can also get the DPI buttons to macros or anything so like:
Switch to nade
Throw nade
Switch to gun

Or in Crysis I made one that did a strength jump or in Far Cry 2 make it so you can slide.

It may not look great and look uncomfy but it really is a comfortable mouse.
I have had/tried loads of mice ranging from:

Microsoft Mini Mouse
Logitech G5
Logitech G7
Razor Diamondback
Razor Copperhead (or w/e)
Logitech G9

Out of all of them, the G9 is definatly the best mouse. Its comfy, you palms dont sweat, and its got more buttons and the ability to customise it that any other mouse.

You can set it to change colour, change DPI and what the buttons are assigned to depending on the application launched.
So I have red lights for Crysis with my macros setup
Green for CoD4 with different DPI settings and button assignment

etc
