I used to use a Hardocp Ratzpad, however it started bending in the middle and I got tired of bending it back... A friend recommended me a Func Surface 1030 and that is what I've been using for the last years, works great! As for mice I've long loved the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 but their build quality has become crap in the last 5 years or so. (The micro switches get worn out causing the mouse to either miss clicks or double click when you single click) I bought a Razer / Microsoft Habu gaming mouse however that did not last so longer either, and was overall a quite buggy mouse. (First time I've had to update the firmware in my mouse!) Now I have owned a A4Tech X7 Oscar Gaming Mouse X-748K for 1.5 years and I love it, it's really cheap but has great build quality, precision & feel!
