The best gaming mice on the market [Discussion]

I don't know about you guys but I'm personally sick of being conned into purchasing cheap crap with flashing lights veiled under the guise of "gamer gear." I want real opinions from experienced gamers so any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm looking for the most efficient, precise, comfortable, and affordable gaming mice on the market.

I want you guys to judge your mouse/mice with this criteria:
Efficiency - software and hardware speed (how quick are the reactions, ex. wireless mouse interactions would be delayed because wirelessly transmitted data is always going to be slower than wired)

Precision - how accurately do the clicks and pointer movements reflect the physical interactions with the mouse?

Comfort - your opinion on the ergonomic design of the mouse (shape, weight, short or long term hand or wrist issues)

Durability - how long before it will begin to break down or stop working all together (ex. left click pin degrades after 4 months of gaming)

Cost - price per unit of measured performance

There is no best. It all depends on your hand size and grip style. In general the best mice currently for most people are Logitech G pro wireless, Logitech G305, Finalmouse air58, Zowie ec2-b.
Edit: Forgot to mention Zowie FK2.

3325/3330/3360/3389/Hero and variants Sensor ...
plus a Shape YOU prefer, plus weight YOU like ...
after that , a look into click latency could also be important ...
cable , if not wireless , can be changed ...

Which ones have you tried, and what didn't you like about them? I'd just like to know so that I might steer clear of them when I finally decide to purchase my own gaming mouse.

If you enjoy the shape you should be looking at the MX518 legendary when it finally releases for the western market. Should be the exact same shape with better internals. The coating is different though.

WMO:
- sensor, buttons, cable, mousewheel

G100S:
- sensor, buttons, mousewheel

G403:
- gripwidth a bit to wide, cable, weightdistribution, big hump

G203:
- shape \_/, slippery coating, feels to heavy for its size, to narrow gripwidth

FK2:
- stiff buttons, slippery coating, to heavy for its size, to narrow

Venator:
- slippery sides, to narrow gripwidth


"flawless" leightweight WMO or G100S shaped mouse is what I want. Im using a G403 atm but Im not super happy with its shape.

Well that G40 about the best one I had. Not real crazy about the Mouse man. I could see missing that side button.

This is a classic /mousereview style thread that makes no sense whatsoever.
As others pointed out people have way too different hands and personal preferences for this to go anywhere meaningful.
