Now thats harsh I just love my Logitech G5 + Steelseries I-2 combo. Best mouse experience I've ever had. Although my G5 has some troubles recognizing fast movement on glass surface but thats very rare occasion for me.

Damn, dunno of my parent doing this. Probably gived away floppy discs along with old computers. The only leftover are the tapes and the Logitech 3 mouse button.

I used to use the logitech, G-15? or was it G10? trackball. It made me one of the best, maybe the best, pilot in crysis. My best killstreak was 165 kills without dying.

My weapon of choice, Logitech M570 thumbroll trackball mouse.

I used a microsoft Trackman 1.0 for almost 8 years before it died. I use my mouse on the arm of my La-Z-boy chair so traditional mouse won't work in that sort of comfort level.

It has been a while since I have used a ball mouse, I hated those things. The worst part was cleaning the lint off the rollers. Or watching someone pound the mouse on the mouse pad to find a round part to the ball they have not pounded flat yet. uhh.

I really didnt understand this sentence at all. "Focking your nickname"? If you mean me trying to steal your nickname, no, I dont have any intentions to steal your nickname. I was just saying I started gaming online around 2005-2006 maybe. And mostly Counter-Strike Source. Unreal and Unreal Tournament were both the games I played lots of when I was a kid but only campaign mode or against bots
