    the cyber sniper look's like an upgraded mx510 with more feature's....

    it's kind of pointless to start a thread asking for mouse reccomendation's when you have your mind already set........

    good luck and happy gaming

    go to your local frys, cons, bestbuy ect and see for yourself which one you prefer.

    ehh...no like go to a store and try both out at the store if they have them on display
    wait are you being sarcastic :confused:

    no i mean they have it in boxes, so you cant test it there. so you buy both g5 and g9 , use until you find which one is better and return the one you dont like and get a full refund .

    The Razer Deathadder is sexy!
    I have one myself and no complaints good for people with large hands

    My DeathAdder died and Razer had me send it back for a replacement.

    After gaming on that I can't use anything else now. Guess my gaming is on hold till the new one gets here.. Thought about buying a second one for now, but $60...

    I use a Diamondback 3G and it's pretty awesome. I like the DeathAdder's placement of the left side buttons more, but it's not a big issue. Both use the same sensor, so you get the same performance.

    I own various mice, I had (one of my favorites) a Cyber Snipa Stinger mouse until my son stole it from me before shipping overseas, He is in special ops and also enjoyed its feel so he took it with him, (close to a logitech G5 but much better) but I can not find them online at the present to replace it, so I bought a Saitek 3200 and am please but not enthused. I also have the G5 but it was older and needed upgrading The Razer Lachesis feels really really good in my hand, check this out before buying as well. I will be picking one up for myself at circuit city.

    You see it is personal preference to ones own hand...they are all good or great to someone, only your hand knows for sure.
    My son left the dam CS Stinger overseas and his buddies are enjoying at base at the present. But hopefully they will be available from a reliable online source soon again or a up dated version..

    ye, i think i would go for the Stinger

    i got 2 reasons

    1) i got cybersnipa headset - and its amazing
    2) i got cybersnipa mousepad (aluminium) - which i love

    but tbh my question is, if he is comfortable like the g5 / mx518 etc

    thanks

    P.S

    (if somebody can bring me a review of stinger, it will be helpfull)

    i like the deathadder but have always preferred the logitech g9(i have the blue one) rev. 2 i guess. and it's works great, responsive, comfortable and it has 7 total buttons maybe more if you change the sensitivity buttons over so i like it for world of warcraft playing my lock or just fraggin in cod 4
