Hello,

I am looking to buy a new gaming mice after my Razer mouse gave out. I do not wish to rebuy from Razer again, as I feel their quality build is subpar. I've looked at a few sites, such as Logitech and Cooler Master, but I need the community in on this one for a good mouse. I also checked MxPC Best of the Best for their choice of a mouse, but that thing is a bit too out of world for me. I simply need a simple, good gaming mouse for FPS games, such as CS:GO and games like Mass Effect. I'm not into the WoW scene, so I don't need five billion programmable buttons.

Thank you all for your help,

Tyler

Well, "gaming hardware" is just another way to mark up the price of regular hardware. Unless it's one of those insane 30 button mice or something. But if you're fine with 5-buttons, then you can get decent mice in this range for $30-$50. But don't go out spending like $100 on a mouse.

What brand would you recommend? I was considering Logitech.

I'm indifferent to Logitech. I use one, only because Dell didn't offer another mouse brand. I have an HP mouse too which is pretty nifty, but I can't find anything about it and it's probably discontinued. Microsoft also makes pretty decent mice too.

FWIW, I vote Logitech. Especially the G5, now G500. Outstanding ergonomics and the Setpoint drivers are rock solid.

If you're not ardently anti-Razer I've had a very good experience with this mouse:

http://www.amazon.com/Razer-Abyssus-Precision-Optical-Gaming/dp/B002XLR0JI/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_2

Lightweight, lots of sensitivity for the price and a very comfortable fingertip grip. The glide and scroll wheel feel much better than my old G5.

Tbh, I was a big Razer fan, but this is the second mouse I've had die in the last two years, I'm done.

I have always gone with the Logitech MX500 series (I've owned the MX500, MX510, MX518, G5, G500) and the newest is the G400, which is basically an MX518 remake (my favorite of the series)and its only about 44$. However, Thermaltake announced their Level 10 M yesterday, and it looks super cool, but is probably at least 80$, if not more, and I really want to try it out.

$44? Try a cool $30 @ Amazon for arguably the best corded mouse on the planet. All that is missing are the weights and uber-cool braided cord of the G5 and G500 series. The rubberized cord is simply also'ran and cheap.

thanks for the link, I have had the G400 picked out as my next mouse for a while, but seeing as my G500 still works fine, couldn't justify spending 44$ on it right now, but at 30$ might have to snatch one up seeing as yesterday was my birthday (big 2-3).

Logitech's G5 is a very solid purchase. I've been using R.A.T.'s from Cyborg, like them a lot too...but the G5 is still the staple of any mouse out there, gaming or not. Even the RAT3 is a fun mouse to game with and is on par with the G5.

When you buy a toy truck, you get an iron Tonka Truck. When you buy a solid mouse, you buy a Logitech G5. After that, it's gets sketchy and the doors are blown wide open. I've about bashed the crap out of my G7,MX700, and G500 in the long run. I know it's a long life for a mouse, but the G5 just doesn't suffer the same issues past (and current) mice have held with me.

I'm going Office Space on them soon. I hate the G7/MX700 and am just pondering if it needs a fast pitch at a brick wall or a .308 round shoved through it and the charger. Clean holes are boring ;)
