Ive gone through a few mouses (been PC gaming since before Doom). Got my first razer mouse about 3 years ago now (the mamba) and ive been really happy with it. Hasnt had any issues other than the wheel squeeking which was an easy fix.

I would just like to point out the Zowie AM ties for the worst mouse I've ever used. Prediction or not, the sensor (lens) is complete crap. Being completely serious, a high quality ball mouse is better for a low sensitivity gamer.

I just got a Corsair M60 to replace my mx518. It's a bit more comfortable because it is wider, but I have large hands. I also like the wider feet better.

G400 is my favorite. It's a successor of the MX518 which was my favorite prior to G400. G500 is very similar in design and functions except that it's laser. G400 is optical. I have hears that a softer mouse pad is better mates with optical mice and hard surface is better with laser, but to me it seems the opposite is true. in any case the difference is minimal but I like the optical better.

Loved the Razer Deathadder ... when it works! Middle click creates extra clicks all it's own.

Create an AutoHotKey script that turns the MMB off for like 150ms after its been clicked.

Code:
#singleinstance force
#noenv
#maxhotkeysperinterval 1000
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%
sendmode input

mbutton::
click down middle
keywait mbutton
click up middle
sleep 150
*edit*
Lol, I was getting pissed cuz my mouse seemed to be having problems clicking. I forgot I left this script on with a 2000ms sleep from when I was testing it for you.
