lmao that's crazy. I could see that being useful when playing MMOs though. Especially if playing a mage or other class that has lot of spells/abilities.

Logitech G604

I tried one of these a few weeks ago ... not nearly as many buttons as some of the above but still quite a few compared to normal gaming mice.

I REALLY wanted to like it because it was handy having those side buttons there to program but I found that in order to use any but the lower row front and rear side-buttons made my wrist sore.

The other annoying (but not deal-breaking by itself) was that the right mouse button is super-sensitive which makes it nearly impossible to pick up the mouse to relocate without clicking it. I found this compounded the sore-wrist too by preventing my pinky/ring-finger from resting on the mouse.

Swapped it out for the updated MX-518 corded mouse and am much happier. (virtually identical to the original with better switch's and sensor)

I think the logitech performance MX is the best mouse ever made except for two problems, the battery life is terrible and they are discontinued. I can live with the battery life so I bought a few of them, but I'm on my last one. Apparently the resellers realize this as they are listed for 350 bucks on Wallmart.com :eek:.

I have an older very similarly shaped model ... MX-710 I believe. Came bundled with a keyboard and was one of the last models that didn't use the unified receiver.

Mainly use it to work on people's laptops these days ... I hate touching somebody else's grungy keyboard lol.


Here's another multi-button option which looks like it might be more comfortable to use ... reportedly the scroll-wheel on these is a bit fragile though.

Greatest gaming mouse ever


I saw that one looked interesting ... I don't care much about the weight though more the shape being comfortable and sensor-quality.

Note I got that updated MX-518 for $21 which I'm pretty sure was a mistake on Best Buys part so tough to go too far wrong!

I used the original mx518 for a while and loved it. Then the G502. Since then I've tried almost 15 different mice. I can't go back to a mouse that weighs that much again. I'm sure you can go too light but the Glorious Odin model 0 is perfect. And ergonomic. The Final Mouse hype train was light too, and a good shape, but a tad big. Plus not as solid feeling as this.

No issues with performance.

I still have my original MX-518 somewhere in a storage bin and the second one I was still using as my primary gaming mouse right up until I snagged the updated model last week. (on my backup gaming PC now)

I actually prefer the scroll-wheel on the older version but everything else about the new one is an improvement with Omron switch's and a 16k sensor. Also not that the original was heavy or anything but it's a bit lighter.

It's really tough to find the "perfect" mouse! :D

I can only presume this type of stuff is more relevant to super duper asians playing RTS games. Maybe MMO.

Or maybe not. Personally I can't see this being useful in stuff like FPS.

That G604 was certainly awkward/clumsy that's for sure ... it was handy to have the extra buttons but the ergonomics were just terrible especially for fast-action games.

And yeah the buttons on the Corsair Scimitar are only easily usable if you have fairly small fingers based on playing around with one in Best Buy.

Your thinking is wrong. I have that mouse and the MX Revolution was better. The Performance MX in the two copies I have will not hold a long enough change to come anywhere near as close to the MX Rev.

I remember using this guy back in the day and loving it. Got me through a lot of Counter Strike matches in high school.

I've had the MX518 for a long time and I love it.

I'm not sure what this thing is supposed to be:

yeah, that is my favorite mouse ever, but I hate wireless because of the battery issue. I use a G502, maybe 3 years now, with no complaints. I like that it's wired (er, I think it's an option, but there's where I've been with it since day one, so I call it a wired mouse)

I have to admit I was jarring out the whole time I was making this then that idea popped in my head. lmao. Dual-Link USB for better performance! Or control two computers at once!

Seriously though, a mouse that can incorporate a full keyboard would be kind of fun as a novelty. lol.
