    In a state of flux...
    I'm surrounded by accents; mainly Canadian and fake French ones (Quebec speaks what they term "French" but its mainly fucked up)......kind of strange when I speak good English without an heavy accent to hear so many different sounding people and so many languages all in one place, plenty of Russian, Polish, Greek, Asian and Jews here. :nutkick:

    Canada is a sharp contrast from England...so many random things here it makes your head spin half the time. :laugh:

    I've NEVER used a gaming mouse... i really don't know what the diffrence is, obviously it would be slightly faster response times... anything else?

    you can change the DPI settings of the mouse by pressing a small button on the mouse and you can adjust it on a programme,better built quality? thats all i could think of advantages of gaming mouse and it has a nice chasis

    To be honest i spent £6 on my current mouse... IF it ever breaks im going to go get another exactly the same, it's wiireless and i've dropped it so so so many times, and i've had it about 2 year now... it's really great to say it's a cheap one.

    not this argument again LOL, for starters the laser in a gaming mouse is usually a lot more powerful then the standard mouse. which means that buy tuning up the DPi you can have less physical moment for more ingame movement which is crucial for games such as FPS's & even more important for people who love run around with an MG & spray bullets in a random direction & kill 5 people without even looking & then have the crosshairs back to center in less then a blink of an eye.

    People have always argued strongly against 'gaming grade' hardware but the just as many people have argued that gaming gear actually makes a difference. it just depends on the persons own personal tastes & the game hes playing. Ive used a load of standard mice in the past, both the trackball & laser variations but Ive never looked back after i bought a Logitech G7 & later on upgraded to a Logitech G9

    none of them are actually "gamer" mice just ones used as that, you can get logitech mice they arnt even labled as "gamer" mice but a lot of gamers use them

    these type of mice usually have a high dpi, customisable controls a specific grip and feel, usually extra buttons that are customisable, software, possible gold plated connection eh anyone got anything else to add

    im sure you can find that in a non "gamer" branded mouse too so thats why i never call em "gamer"


    like how can you get a "gamer" case or a "gamer" set of ram?

    EDIT: the only thing i can say is the best way to test it is to use it that way you will be sure of the grip and sentivity instead of relying on a review which may be ones personal feelings or preference
    sure reviews will tell if its technical crappy or flimsy but feel and touch are difference

    It's not worth the price. I prefered my MX revolution more. Although it is much more comfortable.

    were talking about just £120-130 for a mouse lol. I think the most expensive K&M set ive bought to date was the old Logitech MX3000 set from Hong Kong. I think that set worked out to roughly around £60+ too. i cant remember. I loved that keyboard but it was costing me a fortune on AA batteries & even my rechargeables werent safe. I bought a pack of what i think were 2500mAh rechargable batteries & they lasted fairly long but by the time my keyboard & mouse set got through them then wouldnt even last 2-3weeks. & thats supposedly another reason why I put my Logitech G7 away. got sick of changing battery packs every 6 hours in the middle of a gun fight.

    but the G7 is now for laptop use. - thats if i ever get mind repaired or get a new one.... :banghead::banghead: & my kinda of laptops aint cheap

    i could use my old logitech optical mouse but i don't like how its really flat,i'm used to the curve for your palm and the small curve on left side for your thumb.
    Maybe i should buy another one for £14 or buy a OCZ behemoth from ebuyer for £15.36

    Alright, count me in. I'm a bit late to the party tho but never too late to join :)

    I'm Nick..intoduction over, time to bitch and whine!

    Credit crunch sucks!!!!!! My rich tea biscuits now cost me £1 when they used to cost 70p :shadedshu, I don't even eat rich tea biscuits but grrrr i'm British!!!!! Although the currency is getting stronger against the USD, about 3 months ago it was £1 = $1.45, now it's £1 = $1.65, but I still think back to the glory days of £1 = $2 :( oh I need some tea and crackers :D

    sorry i've been having too much sugar in my tea lately, oh the stress of being British :eek:
