I've been on a recent splurge on mouses and mouse pads I purchased the Coolermaster Inferno it's a great mouse but I find it too light weight and the braded cord is kinda stiff. I might try it out again. I picked up a Logitech G500 based on reviews and seeing people on the [H] forum swear by it I like it alot if it wasn't for the weights though I wouldlnt' use it. I also picked up a Logitech MX anywhere mouse for kicks but the middle mouse button doesn't click it just scrolls but it's a really nice mouse but I can't click that fast in FPS as with the G500. I want to the the Xonet out though =) but I suspect it will be too light for my taste like the Inferno is but it might be faster on the mouse pad due to the size.

I just want a simplistic gaming mouse with a side button (or two.)

Still sporting the logitech g9..................no need to switch until it dies. Using the MERC Stealth keyboard, it is so-so. Would like the Razer Black widow Ultimate though..............hmmmmm.....

I've got a MX-518. It doesn't have enough buttons. Why would I want this stupid thing?

How about reading the article?
Designed for gamers who don't need an excessive amount of buttons.

Exactly. There are other mice in the line up as well for those who want more buttons.

That's a pretty good price for a rat with those specs.  Wouldn't mind giving it a shot.

Looks good, I dislike razer mice, gimmicky and too many buttons.
I will keep an eye on this, though my comfortable MX-518 of 3 years is still going strong; no reason to upgrade.

I have the MX 518 as well but moved on to a G500 for that extra thumb button and better (to me) placement of DPI buttons.

If something should happen to the MX 518, logitech has released the G400 which gets rid of the slick top and upgrades the sensor levels. Aside from that, it's pretty much the same.

I had 3 Deathadders. An original, then two V.2. Two had broken (first was cable, second was button failure) and the 3rd one got returned for some wierd jittery issues, even after the firmware update. I still would give the Deathadder Black a try in the future. Supposedly things were improved.

Another mouse that's quite good but hard to find outside of newegg is Mionix NAOS 3200. I got to try it out at a store, felt nice and wanted to read up on it. Came back to the store and it was gone. Ended up getting a Mionix Propus pad though.

Funny you should mention Mionix, a company that doesn't always get mentioned when discussing mice, but should be. I recently discovered the Mionix Naos 5000 and ended up replacing my Razer DeathAdder with it.

I didn't know about it until I was shopping for a better mouse pad. My SteelSeries 5L cloth hybrid is wearing out and my old ExactMat was eating away at the feet of my mice. Cloth mats wear down, lint up and become difficult to clean fully so the Mionix Propus 380 was recommended by various sites.

I bought it and it feels and tracks great without being harsh on the mice feet. Then I saw the NAOS 3200 optical mouse. After reading up on laser mice tracking oddly for FPSes I decided to go back to optical. My G500 is doing great but my parents' computer needs a new mouse so I figure this would be an excuse for me to get a new mouse for myself... How's the tracking on the NAOS 5000 (laser)? Is the software good and intuitive? Other reviews had nothing but good things to say but I'd like to hear from you. Maximum PC review coming?

Razer does make simpler mice.  They're not all the naga (I personally love my naga epic, but each to their own).  The imperator has just about the same button layout as the MX-518.  left/right buttons, 2 thumb buttons, and two below the scroll wheel.  The deathadder loses the scroll wheel buttons, and the abyssus is a stripped down 2-buttons-and-a-scroll-wheel device.

 

Though it looks like CM is going to undercut them rather badly.  Even the stripped down abyssus rings in at $50, with the deathadder at $60, and the imperator $80.

I know they have simpler mice but overall I find them a gimmicky over priced poor quality brand after numerous problems I've had with their mice...
