The Best Mouse: Power User, Gaming, Wireless, Ergonomic

Corsair Glaive for $20 is the best gaming mouse I've ever had. I've lost count of the number of Razer mice I've had that died within 6-12 months.

Mouse?

is this piece on antique hardware? I upgraded to a Mac in 2011, went with track pad after a little reticence, and being convinced by my daughter who worked for Apple. Never looking back. Its like touch, but without reaching cross the screen, and no smudges on your beautiful display. Mouse? yah, so 90s.

Maybe gamers?
Gamers, people who need more precision, anyone doing more professional work especially in art and design, or people in high productivity workspaces where speed. Trackpads are convenient and good for causal use but that's about it.

@Julio Franco & Co, just being pedantic, but the Naga Trinity has 7 buttons for that middle side plate.

I'm currently running the G602, (sorta ancestor to the G604?) and on that mouse as well I was disappointed to lose the ability to plug my mouse in to charge. I solve the issue by using NiMH rechargeables, but it is not the same.

Then there's the best general purpose mouse to ever be assembled: The Logitech M100.

Under $10.00, three-buttons, ambidextrous, corded, and a clicky wheel. It's perfect for us "old farts".

How much did Logitech pay for this article?

No, seriously, if you do a google search for "logitech doubleclick" you'll find hundreds, if not thousands, of people complaining about practically all of their mice doubleclicking; either new out of box, or a few months down the line.

There is a massive design flaw with their mice that are 10m+ click rated (typically 50m), because they use D2F-C switches instead of regular D2F Japanese switches. The C means Chinese, they rated for more clicks, yet have far lower tolerances and suffer issues, even right out of the factory.

RMAing your mice can do nothing. Buying a new one can do nothing. This affects the cheapest mice from $20, or the most expensive up to $150 designed for "pro gamers". Last I checked, pro gamers can't have their mice multi-clicking, as it could cost them thousands of $$$ at a tournament.

I've personally owned a G900, 4 G903's, and a PRO Wireless. All $150 mice. All multi-click. Both the regular and side buttons (but typically regular). And the G90x all have scroll wheel wobble issues to varying degrees. My G900 lasted the longest (about a year), and it was the lowest rated clicks one. Half of my 903's doubleclicked within the first week.

The only workaround is to buy replacement D2F switches and resolder them yourself; something not many people want or even know how to do.

Had the Deathadder Elite until it broke (puppy chewed through cable- wife's fault) and replaced it with a SteelSeries Rival 600 Gaming Mouse. The SteelSeries is a fantastic mouse! Hadn't even heard of it until a mate at work told me about it. Absolutely top notch. Should have been listed here.

Still using a 10+ year-old MX 518. Best mouse I've ever owned.
I recently stopped using my G400 (same body as MX 518, just older) and I replaced it with the new G MX518. It's pretty good. Love this mouse style the most. Also have a G502 and a G700s that I could never really get into. Glad they re-made the MX 518.

I had the G400 (it was too light)
next came the G500 (better, but, I didn't like it)
then came my G502 Proteus (just right with all the weights used)
but I got carpal tunneling from my time in the mills & using the G502 all the time
so I bought a MX Vertical, which greatly eased my carpal tunneling
but then I saw the MX Ergo & I had to have one, it took a few weeks to get used to it
but I use it everyday now, but when the night comes, I swap it for my G502 Proteus :)

I have always had a weak spot for sexy mice. My last prey is Scimitar. I tried earlier with a corsair mouse but it wasnt a claw shape so I had to give it up. But this time I went till the end and adjusted to palm shape.
And I just love its design so much. I will never change this mouse.

My favourite mouse is still the R.A.T. 7 MMORPG. It lasted me 7ish years. The 'rubber' went a big gunky in places though and eventually one of the side buttons broke off (they weren't very secure). The button layout, including the HAT stick was fantastic though!

Now I use Roccat Tyon. I miss the HAT though and it could do with a couple more side buttons (there's definitely the space).

I had my G502 doing the double-clicky after about 3 years and it wasn't the switch but actually the tension spring that went out of shape. Bent it back into shape and it's good as new.
I haven't checked which type of switch it uses though.

I wish someone would make a mouse that doesn't use those contraptions for a "spring" as 90% of my mice "died" due to that spring losing tension and thus double-clicking, some I was able to fix and some I broke during disassembly...
