    MX518, perfect mouse and great low price. Makes me hate using peoples OEM mouses, I start hitting back buttons that aren't there, the feel is horrible, and when I get back to my mouse it actually takes some re getting use to.

    I have a Cyborg RAT 7 but had to stop using it due to the laser being a piece of crap. It is the most comfortable mouse with a lot of customizability which I miss. Currently using a G9.

    My first "real" mouse was the Logitech G5 (1st gen.) which I bought back in 2006 and I have no intentions to change it until it's dead!

    Offtopic: It would be interesting to know how many lefties have given up and hold their mouse with the right hand, I'm one of them btw!

    My mouse is a Logitech Anywhere MX. It's a great mouse. The only downside is that it burns thorough a lot of batteries.

    Like Arris, my first mouse is the Amiga 500 one. My current one is a Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000.

    My main mouse is a Logitech G9, but I had to RMA it with Logitech because there was something wrong with the laser. Logitech is replacing it with a G9x, which is awesome of them. I am using the mouse with the larger ID Grip that they have unfortunately stopped making. I have large hands, and with the ID grip, the G9(x) is the best mouse I have ever used. I hope they never stop making it, or at least something like it. It's just the best balance between form and function in a mouse I've seen.

    As I'm waiting for my replacement G9x to come back, I'm using their G500 which I find very difficult to get used to. The laser isn't centered, and it's not balanced like the G9 is, but the tracking is very good.

    I've used a ton of different mice: Razer DA, Intellimouse Explorer, etc., but I keep coming back to the G9.

    My first windows pc was a Toshiba laptop which just simply had a Synaptic type laptop mouse. My present mouse is a Logitech LX3 optical mouse. I tried those cheap chinese $3 knockoffs, but they are unusable. The cheap chinese keyboards are the best I ever used, however, to change the subject. I don't sympathize with those using wireless mice. How often do you replace the batteries (go green) and don't they interfere with your wireless laptops, wireless networked printers, and cordless phones?

    Cant even remember my first mouse, prolly one of those beige genius 3 button ones that everyone wondered what the middle button was for. Infact a mouse was so optional back then it was almost never used.

    Currently have a Razer Copperhead, its the "cheaper" lazer option and it's been pretty kickass sofar, only drawback is that the hole where the lazer is seems to enjoy sucking up cat hair and stuff and every now and then when the pointer stops moving I know why.

    First mouse - beige three-button mouse purchased with my Pentium PC somewhere around 1996-1997. Don't remember the make.

    I went through several different mice recently - Logitech MX (1st gen) served me well for several years until the "rubber" coating on the sides peeled off. I tried RAT7 and hated it. Ended up buying Razer Imperator - one of the few ones that allow adjusting the position of back and forward buttons.

    Can't remember first mouse at all, though I suppose it was some generic beige one with the mouse wheel all gunked up with dust at some point in time.

    My mouse for the last few years has been a Razer Death Adder, and I recently updated to the 3.5G version.

    My first mouse even though it was OEM was some beige square trackball mouse with little rectangle buttons in the early 90's as a kid. Wasn't until a decade later I actually bought my own mouse which was a Logitech that I used for several years. Currently I am using a Gigabyte GM-M6800, which I'm very happy with its performance considering the price.
  15. First mouse ever was a Logitech brand. The Optical Mouse Man. Gamed with it through SC1 and CS beta-CS 1.5. Then lost it after lending it over to a friend. Then followed a stream of Logitech mice; the MX518, G5, and G7, and later the MSI3.0, and currently, White Deathadder.
