    I have 3 razers, Deathadder, Diamondbacl and the Lachesis ( Thank god a new driver has come out for it ) Also used to have the Logitech G9 but sold as I didn't like the grips but really getting used to the Lachesis.

    Think the best one I had was the Logitech MX518

    I had a mx510 and I loved it so I upgraded to a Logitech G7, best mouse ever. I have to change the batteries every 2 days, but no biggie because there is a fresh one charged all the time. I took this one over the G9 because this one has the nicest grip and as far as gaming, if I get pissed off I always know I can go full out and get 5:1 in CSS

    This Mouse is Amazing!!!

    I got this one 5 years ago, and cannot stand having to wave my arm all over my cluttered desk. I'll never go back to standard mouses.

    No, my thumb does not hurt from using it. Yes, I kick a lot of ass in fps games. My only gripe with it, is the 3-button layout. It could use an extra one or two. It's big and holds very nicely. Don't have to worry about the weight or "glide" sensation like a normal mouse for good responsiveness. Just pop the ball out (which I've become neurotic about) every couple of days, and it will never fail you. I've dropped this mouse from all kinds of heights on hundreds of occasions over the past 4 years. It's still clicking, scrolling, and moving right along. Ya can find it for 25$, highly recommended.

    Same here. Tried many mice before the MX518, even used two MX310 mice...each died a bad death. I've had my MX518 for a few years now. The Logitech logo is worn off of the top. It still works and does so well in games that I never get mad and blame the mouse...hence causing previous destruction of former mice.

    I've got a Copperhead, but im gonna get a habu (its very similar, but the habu is a lot better fit for my hand, the copperhead is just uncomfortable as hell)

    No mines the older one still rawks tho just not as hard as the 07 by the sounds of it.
     
  15. Have: Razer BoomSlang (ball mouse) & Razer Diamondback (enhanced/modified).
    Use: Razer Diamondback.

    The Diamondback is the best mouse I've ever had.. The ability to almost "lock" X or Y axis, is just one of many cool options when playing FPS games.

    I have Logitech mx310, mx510, mx1000, mx518 and G9 all grate mouse
    But when it comes to FPS games (for me) they don’t come close to Razer copperhead
    and yes copperhead gives me hand cramps after about 4 hours and still it is the best.

    I'm using an MX518 right now. I bought a blue G5 (version 2) awhile ago to replace my aging MX700. I didn't start using it right away, and then Circuit City was selling the MX518 for dirt cheap. I bought two for about $26.
