    Last 4 years I was holding Razer starcraft spectre with claw grip.
    Now I decided to use bigger one so I bought steelseries diablo 3 reaper of souls mouse - it is just perfect.
    Great build quality, perfect sensor and grip :)
  3. Because wireless mice still have very slight input lag compared to wired, I use logitech g700s plugged in at home and a razer deathadder at work.

    I play a lot of FFXIV and my current mouse of choice for my gaming machine is a Logitech G600.

    I'm currently using Logitech's G502 (Proteus Core) mouse on both of my boxes.

    I use a Roccat Tyan. Easily the best mouse I have ever had. I also have a Roccat Kone XTD which also is great. I have used pretty much every mouse on the planet unit finding these Roccat devices so I have had a lot of experience with a variety mice.

    I use a basic Microsoft scroll wheel, wired optical mouse.
  13. Im using TRUST EasyClick wireles mouse about 5 years. It's very good mouse cheap and is fine at performance. Only problem I have had is the roller got stuck, easy fix and it's fully working again. It's not good for heavy gamers and gaming, but everyday use it's more than enough! So il reccomend this

    Same here for the last 4 years, but I got fed up running out of batteries more than I did tugging at tangled cords so I'm reverting to wired again...Microsoft again (is good at basic tier)

    Get a battery charger. I haven't yet, but will be.

    Oh, I wouldn't even think of doing this without rechargeables; no, it's the inconvenience of it all (plus some health concerns about radiation).

    No need for that mess with a lot of the newer Logitec mice. 2 years battery life. I believe it because I've gone over a year with an LX7 which came out a long time ago.

    I guess TS decided to resurrect this two year old topic by putting it over on the Discuss sidebar...

    For me, it's the Corsair M90. By far the best gaming mouse I have used, so of course, Corsair discontinued it (and its M95 version, which is supposed to be an improvement. Unfortunately, it has a nasty firmware bug and inferior build quality, so to me it's worse than the M90) so they could replace it with another me-too MMO mouse with a veritable keyboard under the thumbrest (right handed), just like all those ones I didn't buy from every other mouse manufacturer when I first ended up with the M90. I hope they see the light and bring it back, or that someone else offers something comparable, before the ones I have break or wear out.

    A Roccat Tyon. Would I recommend it to others? Hell no, it's too expensive and I've returned it 3 times as the side-flipper starts living a life of its own after a while with random scrolling as a result (if set to act as scroll up/down). Again the side-flipper is acting up and I'm outside the warranty period.. but with the up position disabled and some 'calibrating' I still personally prefer it about any other mouse.

    I switch tabs with the top flipper, scroll with the side flipper and got the additional buttons set to other misc browser tasks such as closing tabs and refreshing the page. It's not perfect, in fact I'd say it's flawed with the side flipper not being very wear and tear proof but it's the best for me even with those flaws. (Also, throwing away a mouse with that kind of price tag because one button doesn't properly work and can be disabled if needed... I'd feel bad)
