Not bad, I was considering it but I upgraded to this Logitech three button mouse and my accuracy in shooters went up tenfold.

The DeathAdder objectively has the best sensor of any mouse currently available to buy new today. The only complaint anyone has with it is the lift-off-distance which is minimised with ligher colour pads and eliminated if you modify the mouse to use a red LED instead of an infrared LED.

You can still buy a Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical 1.1 or an IntelliMouse 3.0, both of which also have a sensor suitable for gaming, but they are only 400 DPI sensors which is not enough for most people playing on modern displays without pixel-skipping, and they require difficult work-arounds to be polled at 500/1000Hz. On my Windows 7 system even with the overclocking hack, the mouse would not go above 250Hz. When set to 500/1000Hz it actually only reported at 200Hz and 500Hz is required for good control from these mice.

Roccat Kone, Logitech G9x or G500.
Personally I've yet to find any reason to buy a Razer mouse, as they seem to fall apart. That's at least what happened to my 4 neighbors who happened to buy them.

For me its the Logitech MX518, cheap, robust, easy to use, front/back buttons and DPI on the fly all in right place, and best of all its cheap, literaly like £20, and most people on here will tell you it lasts for years, ive had mine for a couple now!

This is basically my issue with these. I don't think I could ever justify $70 for a mouse. Are they really that much different than a $40 MX518?

I mean... it's a mouse. Most of the numbers I see on there read like marketing gimmicks. Similar to looking at the dynamic contrast and GTG response times of monitors. They put flashy numbers to jack the price up.

Here's the thing: I need a new mouse, as the scroll wheel on my current mouse is starting to go. Sometimes, it doesn't respond when I click it, and other times it scrolls down on its own. Like, I'll be in a FPS and it'll change weapons on me.

I've been looking at the MX518 (which is currently $31 on newegg), and it looks really good for the price. Just wondering what the other mice REALLY have to offer over it for double the price. By really, I mean noticeable real world conditions.

This is a purely subjective matter but as of right now I prefer the Logitech G9x. Ive used an MX518 for two years, a DeathAdder for one or two years, and an Intellimouse 1.1a.

The MX518 is for someone who likes to palm the mouse while the DeathAdder has a higher arc and you can either palm the mouse or use a claw grip. The G9x has a completely different feel and is quite a bit smaller. With the G9x you can use the claw or finger tip grip.

Also, if you keep your eye out you can find some really great deals. I was able to get my G9x for $28.99 after a $30 MIR from Logitech which came through relatively fast.
