    I think it was the Logitech black mouse everybody used, with a gum( or something) logo in the middle of the mouse. I now use Acme MA01, Because it was cheap and has CPI controls. The most important thing to me is Back button and CPI button, because i can get back in past and because when i play as a sniper in games, i must increase the sensitiveness. I can't imagine playing as a sniper without this function :O

    um... I don't remember my first mouse. It might have been one of those Microsoft "Dove Bar" mice. Maybe sooner, can't remember. I'm currently using the Logitech PerformanceMX.

    My first mouse had some kind of a cradle instead of a scroll-wheel. Although even that was quite a thing back then. Been using logitech for ages now - my current one being the G5. There was never anything wrong with the mouse, fits perfect, weight is ok, it's just so dirty by now that it makes me wonder whether I shouldn't wash my hands after using it.

    My first mouse would have been the one supplied with Commodore Amiga A500, beige in colour, wired, 2-button and rollerball. Bought a few since then, but current one is Microsoft Wireless optical 2.0.
    Advantages are it's a big mouse that actually fits my hand, has a rough surface so grippy, has 2 x AA cells so 3 months till recharge, smooth scroll wheel, heavy, accurate.

    I've been using Logitech mice for so long that I don't even remember my first non-OEM mouse. I currently using a Logitech MX510 and MX1000 for non-gaming duties and switching to a 2nd generation G5, G9X plus a Roccat Kone for gaming duties.

    First was a mini mouse...Second was a mini mouse...Third was my first mini mouse because my second one broke.

    I can't stand big chunky things when it comes to mice.

    Does the trackball controller for my Atari 800 count? :) Guess not, since I could not use it to position a cursor on a text screen.

    I thionk my first non-OEM mouse was a Logitech Trackman Marble. Then when scroll wheels came out, I picked up a Microsoft IntelliMouse. I still use them for backups or when testing new builds in the basement.

    For my first PC build, I got a Logitech MX1000 wireless laser mouse, which I used almost exclusively until I got a deal on an MX1100 last year. I still use the MX1000 at work.

    Never had a "real" mouse, but I do remember having a Kensington Expert Mouse, which is a simple four-button trackball.

    Currently using a Logitech G9 with heaviest weights installed. Best mouse I've ever had. It's been far too long for me to remember what my first mouse was.

    First mouse BOUGHT was a Logitech V470, before that, for years and years, i simply settled for generic OEM mice. Current mouse is an Ideazon Reaper Edge.

    First mouse, the one that came with the Commodore Amiga 500. And from there I used a few crappy ones that came with PCs. Then I switched to Logitech mice and have been using them ever since.

    I have a Gigabyte laser mouse, it's nice and cost £4.99 from Play.com(quite comfortable) the highest DPI/speed of it and the one I use for FPS and RTS games is only 1600 but that's ok for me.

    First mouse I ever used was a rubbish ball mouse on my parents old eMachines PC haha =/

    What's that in the picture, one of the first mice made from wood? flippin heck that's so... primitive hahaha =P

    Razer lachesis is my current mouse, and my first "real" mouse.
    I thought I'd be more useful for the price honestly; 4000 DPI is so useless I definitely feel like I overpaid this one. Next time, I'll settle for an accurate and dependable mouse at maybe ?$40 max.
