I was really happy with my Legitech G9 until the cord was all busted open due to friction.

I went with a roccat kone after that. Best mouse I ever had so far, with one flaw though. Me and my GF both have this mouse, and we both have problems with the scroll wheel, even with newest drivers etc. Otherwise really great mouse.

Razer Naga. The end.

A mouse is a mouse, yes they have different tracking speeds but the naga actually adds functionality to the mouse by providing 12 extra buttons.

Yea i have a Logitech G500 and Ive never looked back.  Good mouse.  And it comes with little weights to insert in the bottom to change the weight of the mouse. 

 

Very custimizable for a mouse at least.  On the flip side I use a Logitech G15 keyboard too, and have been very happy with it so far.

I never got myself comfortable to the razer Naga, i just don't like the button layout. for me it's too "small" and each button lacks the clear distinction in the block. 


I certainly don't need more then let's say roughly 15 Buttons on a mouse, so even the mouse i got is probably over the top, however at least each button can have a clear distinction in feel and position.


Cyborg MMO 7
http://www.cyborggaming.com/prod/mmo.htm

13 programmable buttons team up with a 3-position MMO mode switch and a 2-position MMO shift button to forge 78 user-definable in-game commands

 
I like the idea of shift keys which change the whole key assignment when pressed. A way better solution than adding twice the raw key amount on the mouse.

The 5 D button (side middle) replaced my target marking and when i hold the "shift" key on the mouse - it's the party member selection.

Pressing down is party member one, up is 2 down 3 front is 4 back is 5. Easy to memorize and clear to distinct on selecting. (That's just how i use this button).

It's full mappable, so you could probably set all keys like inventory to it too.

Only downside to the mouse is, i probably can't play anything without it anymore since most function from F keys to all quickslots shift/alt/ctrl+5,6,7,8,9,0,ß,´, are mapped to it.

Got myself the standard £60 Razer Naga. Had it for a couple months and it's great, though the 10, 11 & 12 side buttons are obelete to those with big hands.

+1 Naga

 

I've used Logitech trackballs for many years.  Although mice users might find using the thumb strange, I loved it.  Why move the whole arm around when you can move accurately with the thumb?

However with all this talk about high dpi and new gaming mice, I looked at the Nostromos and everything else under the sun and finally decided to try the naga thinking that programmable macros would be cool for playing mmos.  I've had the Naga for exactly a year now and I'm very happy with it.  Looks and functions just like new.  So for at least this customer, nothing but a great experience.

I would get a Logitech G700 if I was getting a new mouse right now. Wireless vs wired is a non issue now with the latest tech, but it comes with a data over cable which charges it as well (so it can be true wired OR wireless anyway).

My brother has a naga and I hate the way they feel in my hand. Definately try to get to a store somewhere and feel them in your hand (buy online though, always better deals)

Idk about you guys, but I love my A4TECH X7, it should incredibly fit GW2 as it has 2 side buttons, I'll use one for weapon switching and one for dodging... But god I want to buy Cyborg RAT7.


Sorry for bad English. :)

Brace yourself...... Before I start my novel, just know this review is about the RAT7 vs standard Naga. If you aren't in the mood for a long read (sorry, I enjoy writing and go overboard): In my opinion - Naga > RAT7. 

*And as others said, get to a store, hold them, try them etc. You can read and spend hours researching, but ultimately, it's about what feels right for you.

I had the RAT7 for just over a year and had no complaints. It was just an awesome mouse, and each time I swapped the grip out or the palm rest, it felt like an entirely new mouse. Never had any issues with the tracking, though I am using a $30 mouse pad.... Granted, a hair or dust would get onto/around the laser area and the tracking would be thrown off. Simply blowing on the bottom and quickly wiping off the mouse pad fixed it. 

Now, after a year, I'd become mightliy attached to the RAT, but started to want something new. For me, the RAT is too flat. I play the piano and am used to having my hands in more of a 'claw' posistion, but the RAT didn't support the natural curve of that type of grip (for me! others might not have this issue). During extended sessions with it, it would become uncomfortable, no matter how much I switched around the grips/weights/thumb rest angle etc etc. The RAT7 does come with an elevated palm grip, but for me, the elevation point is too far back and makes it awkward unless pushed in fully. And even then, I could not stand it for too long before I swapped it back to the other plam  rests. 

My step-brother owned the 1g WoW mouse for some time, and that was on the complete opposite side of 'palm elevation'. I always wanted to find a mouse that was in between those two. That, and as some big name MMO's coming out soon, I wanted more buttons on the mouse (RAT7 has the 2 thumb rest and the thumb wheel, making 4 total programmable extra buttons).  Speaking of thumb wheel, I had issues with macros in game. Sometimes, I would have to 'spin' the thumb wheel in the direction of the macro I wanted for the macro to work. This meant sometimes if I tried to click the wheel just by 1 position, the software/hardware would not always register it. Also, I found the thumb wheel a tad out of place, and was not always the easiest to reach in a raging battle. (okay, i do have to admit here that practicing and instrument, such as the piano, made it easier to reach the wheel. Try it! =) The new MMO7 had me all excited as it looked...well... awesome. And it fit the bill for exdtra buttons. Problem is, I knew I would have the same comfort issues as the RAT7. And it is a bit out of my budget ($130).

So, I wised up and took advantage of the 2yr warranty I bought from Best Buy to essentially swap it for another mouse. Best Buy doesn't have the full selection of, say, newegg or other online sources, so my options were limited (remember, I'm looking for more buttons and a higher 'arch' support for the palm). I had $109 store credit to use, and price matching (at this BB location) is questionable. The only gaming mice they stock are the Naga, Deathadder?, and some Logitech I can't remember. I was looking to switch my RAT for something in time for the Tera betas, but only had the BB warranty to use. After a few weeks, BB finally restocked the Naga, and I hastily went in to make the switch. 

I should note, I do TONS of research before I buy something. From what I was finding, I was leaning towards the Naga, but wanted to find the dirty on it. Called my brother who's had the Naga for a few months less than I've had my RAT. His hands are larger than mine, and he said reaching the 1-3 and 9-12 buttons was odd. Other than that, he's still very happy with it. 

Once at BB, before I returned my RAT, I grabbed the Naga, and opened the viewing window. I wanted to try to get a feel for it before I switched, (and they wouldn't let me take it out of the box). But, pleasantly, when I placed my hand on the Naga, even in the viewing window, I was instantly satisfied. 

Once hooked up to my computer, I thought I should have gone with the Naga instead of the RAT before. The difference in the feel was astounding. For me, it was way more ergonomic and fit my hand quite well. The L/R mouse buttons are 'mushy' compared the RAT, and I have found in FPS games, holding the R button can be....interesting. The RAT definately has more 'clicky' L/R buttons. Now, I could not be more happy with the Naga. My hands are smaller and I find reaching all 1-12 buttons on the grid a breeze. *I will say, using the RAT and learning to reach back for the thumb wheel has helped in reaching for the 9/12 keys, as it feels like that is comparatively where it was. Razer threw in a 'training' gudie for the button grid, with little sticky nubs to help memorize the layout of the buttons. Though, for me, I booted up Tera and immedietly was using all keys without looking down at the grid (okay, skills were 1-6 and the mount was mapped to the 10 key). I am not kidding when I say immedietly. 

The Naga does not have a weight system, so it was extemely light compared the RAT, especially since the last while I was using the RAT, I had all 30g of weights in. What I noticed because of this, is the Naga seems more sensitive at lower DPI settings. I had to mess around with the DPI and for the first time (as the RAT had no way of changing them) changing the accel and polling rates. I found 500mhz, accel at 3, and DPI at 300 (on a 24" 1080p monitor), the Naga feels very responsive. Note, I downloaded drivers/FW update/Synapse 2.0 right out of the box. 

So far, the only issue I'm having with the Naga is lift issues. I never found this an issue with the RAT, though as I reflect, I never lifted the RAT so much. The Naga seems to have a second or so of time after setting it back down, where the cursor does not register. Not a big deal in MMO's for me, but in FPS games, it has become  a bit of an issue. At the time, I was using 1800dpi, and have since switched to the aforementioned 3000dpi. ( Oh and I programmed the 2 buttons normally forward/back for dpi switching. I found these two buttons are a pain to reach, I either have to rotate my hand to use my thumb, or awkwardly shift my hand to the left slightly and use my pointer finger. Using them for DPI switching, I found, is a good use for them). 

Oh, and I should mention, as awesome as the LED's are, the LED's on the button grid seem to get warm after being on for a while. Even if I haven't touched the mouse for a time, they tend to be warm.

In the end, I am not looking back at the RAT7, though I might pick up the MMO7 in the future to try it out. The Naga is my choice for MMO's/general use. But if you play FPS more so, just realize the L/R buttons can be weird to use at first (using the grid for weapons switching is awesome though!!). 

*In case anyone is wondering, I did get BB to pricematch current online Naga prices at $70. Though I was a fool and didn't see the Naga Epic (which is wired/wireless, has customizable LED's and 3 different pinkie grips, and the 2 side buttons are moved) online most places for $105. I could have spent a few dollars more to get the Epic =(  although for me, it's too late. Used the leftover $30 or so from store credit on snacks lol

My good old M$ intellimouse has survived everything I've thrown at it for years. But I don't need a lot of mouse binds, if you want those it'd be crap!

So what is the best gaming mouse out there?  which one's do all of you prefer?

Also, I'm on a budget, so please keep your suggestions on gaming mouses under 150 dollars, preferably under 100 dollars though.

 

im somewhat passionate about the subject after being let down by Razer mice (their mechanical keyboard is awesome though). Razer mice are not build to last. theyre cheaply made. I bought the Deathadder last year, and after 3 months of moderate use, the scroll wheel stopped working. i was looking into buying the Naga, but read from many people that it breaks down after about a year of use or less.

the Logitech G9x is by far one of the best mice on the market. check out the stellar user reviews. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104261

you can adjust the weight, DPI and covers. it has 9 programmable buttons (the wheel bends left and right efforlessly), and feels amazing in the hand. based on all the Newegg reviews, it has lasted people 2+ years.

Dissapointing to hear you have had such issues.

 

I own two razer keyboards (Tarantula & Black Widow Ultimate) as well as 2 mice (Imperator & Mamba) as well as the Megalodon headset and each peripheral has seen well over 1000 hours use. I play a whole range of games, some more demanding than others, but my kit gets a lot of *heavy* use and even when I'm not gaming I'm using it for work purposes as well. I probably spend on average of 5-6 hours a day during the weekdays on my PC and anything up to 12-18 hours at weekends if I'm not out and about.

I have heard a few other people say they had issues with Razer gear, either I'm very lucky or some people are very unlucky.
