    I use a Razor Copperhead too. I love it! I've had it for a couple years now and it's held up well. I think it's make is pretty quality. I did buy the kit for it, so now it has a silver top with no "breathing" LED. I also put a 10g weight in it and have replaced the pads on the bottom about three times now. I pretty much play Left 4 Dead exclusively at the moment. :)

    I use the Razor Death Adder I also play FPS’s its good for using in windows but….. I don’t use it for FSP I still use my Creative Fatal1ty 2020 Laser Gaming Mouse even though the 5 button is dead. I can’t seem to set up the 4th and 5th side keys on the Death Adder for some games. Other than that I guess it’s a good mouse most games it works good.

    Yea I hate how some games don't have side button support! Glad CoD4 and L4D have it, I use them a lot in those!

    A cheap logitech, b/c, well, it's cheap. I just can't bring myself to spend $50 on a mouse. I got my keyboard and mouse for $15 and I'm very pleased w/ them. I'm not a big FPS multi-player I guess is why I can get away w/ it.

    A portable Gigaware mouse. It's small and is still a crazy little bugger.

    My truster Microsoft Optical Wireless Mouse. I play Garry's Mod most of the time, this mouse works as well as any other.
    My keyboard is just ridiculous though. Dell Quietkey, got it from my primary school. Its PS/2, loud as a typewriter, and just has the basics, but it works fine.

    I use a logitech mx518 because it was cheap on ebay. TBH I'd have been happy with any good gaming mouse as long as it's comfortable.

    I use a Logitech G5 Rev2.

    The reason i have Rev2 is because i use both buttons in FPS and i use this particular mouse because its big and i can weigh it down.

    Oh yea, i play all kinds of games.

    Logitech MX518 (high resolution optical, wired mouse)

    Been using it for a year or two now (at least) and the only complaint I have is it felt a little ackward the first day I had it. It has been great ever since I got used to it (day two).

    I play racing (e.g. Test Drive, Need for Speed), simulation (e.g. SimCity, The Sims), TBS (e.g. C.O.P.S. 2170, Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge), RTS (e.g. Earth 2150, C&C, Sins of a Solar Empire), FPS (e.g. James Bond: 007 Nightfire, Mirror's Edge), TPS (e.g. Mass Effect, Grand Theft Auto, Bully), and adventure (e.g. Myst, Monkey Island) games.

    I to use a mx518. I have two of them, one for home, and one for the go. Its a fantastic mouse. Very smooth tracking and contours with the hand nicely. Being optical, it does not have the typical optical draw backs like it won't track on black or non-reflective surfaces. Also the mouse button layout is very nice (before the g5 copied it).

    Logitech G9 works great for me playing Americas Army and few other games.

    I would be interested in profiles people use.
