    There used to be a thread for this, but it has long since faded into oblivion. So, this thread is all about about mice.
    • What is your favorite mouse?
    • Got a question about a specific mouse?
    • Need help solving a mouse-related problem?
    • Excited about a mouse that is new to market?
    • Did you run across a great sale on a mouse you love?
    It would be impossible to cover every model of mouse in a poll, so the poll is limited to some of the major brands. Feel free to elaborate and post pictures of your favorite mouse.

    But, please don't be a rat... this thread is about mice. Keep it on-topic.

    So, my current choices are...
    • Corsair M65 PRO
      Pro: Excellent build quality and the best feel of any mouse I have ever owned. It is a heavy mouse and I like that. My overall favorite.
      Con: It is wired. Depending on how you look at that, could be a pro. I hate wires, but it's still my favorite.
    • SteelSeries Sensei Wireless
      Pro: Fantastic build quality, ambidextrous design, highly configurable. Wireless! Rechargeable!
      Con: Uses a docking station to recharge, which detracts from its desirability for travel. The dock looks nice and is well made, but it is best suited for use on a desk.
    Honorable mention goes to the Eluktronics Luminosa - eSports 3389 Paracord Gaming Mouse. This mouse came free with the purchase of my MECH-15G2Rx, along with a super-nice oversize mouse pad. I was not expecting much from this mouse and didn't even open the box for several weeks. I figured it couldn't be great if it was included for free. Well, I was dead wrong. The product is surprisingly excellent. I wish I hadn't ignored it for as long as I did. For the price, I'd go as far as to say it's the best overall value. I have since been using it daily with the MECH-15 for work and I could not be happier with it. The cord is especially nice. It's very flexible and has a nice paracord sleeve. I forget it is a wired mouse. I'm pretty sure I will be buying another one at some point. Yes, it's that good. Had I owned it before buying the M65 Pro and Sensei, I probably never would have purchased either of them.


    I was a Logitech mouse guy for a very long time, and used to buy the expensive wireless G-series mice. I finally got fed up with their crappy button switches that always end up having erroneous clicking problems. They look good and feel great, but they're anything but durable. They typically last me about 6 months before the switches start acting buggy. I learned to take them apart and fix the problem, but it's too much hassle. I still have a couple of very affordable Logitech M510 wireless mice that I use for travel, but when they start having the same problems I am going to toss them rather than fix them. At this point I do not anticipate that they will be replaced with anything made by Logitech, but for $20 the M510 is still a fairly compelling value. Don't have to worry about it getting lost or broken while traveling. It's a shame the button switches are not more durable.

    Happy with Logitech G900. I prefer it over my G502. I got both at about same time at a very good price. One of the reasons I bought expensive models.

    And the only mouse (brand) I will avoid.... Razer in any form or shape. I had the Mamba a few years ago. Bad quality. Broke down exactly as my Son’s all too early. + bloated software. I would buy whatever cheap over it.

    I've personally used all Logitech for ages...

    For gaming I was using the G703. Now I'm using the G Pro, which I like a lot (one of the best sensors out there), however....

    @Mr. Fox, I'm too getting fed up with the poor and weak switch mechanisms on Logitech mouses... Top notch sensors, but terrible short lasting switches.

    I had to warranty 2x G703's so far and now my G Pro is at its early stages of double clicking... Such a shame...

    The mouse that I'm eyeing now is the:

    Razer Viper Ultimate... Here's why...

    + Optical switch mechanism. (no more worrying about mechanical switches.

    + Top tier optical sensor.

    + Longer lasting battery.

    + Faster response.

    + It's very similar in ergonomics to the G Pro that I like a lot.

    Definitely worth a look... Pricey but if it lasts it'll more than pay for itself.

    Below are some pics...

    ...

    G Pro Wireless here, i got it after getting back from playing MMOs mostly to FPS again + trying almost every mouse back then to get the perfect thing, EC2A, FK2, DeathAdder, G403, G305, G203 well you name it, but this thing fits perfectly for me, it's very good balanced, it's shape is relatively narrow and it doesn't has the thiccness like the G403. Ergonomic wise EC2A back then was top notch, i even tried the EC2B but i got 3 replacements cause 2 of them had sensor buzzing, basically you could hear the sensor making high frequency noises and it drove me mad, even when the pc was turned off you heard it and 1 had really squishy clicks.

    But i also got a G604 recently just for the sake of it for FF14 which i recently started and dayum the weight and shape difference was immediately noticable obviously but the next thing i maybe add to my collection is the razer viper wireless just to check it out :D

    Currently using a Roccat Kone AIMO Remastered, which is a fresh purchase so I can't comment on sensor performance. I do like the ergonomics and solid feel of it, however. Then again, it's an upgrade coming from a Roccat Kone XTD, so it's all a bit familiar, without said familiarity being a negative. The Kone XTD is built like a tank — the only part of the mouse which showed significant wear over the years were the mouse feet.

    Before going Roccat, I had the OG Razer Mamba. Decent ergonomics and excellent wireless operation compared to most competition at the time, but not durable. The right MSB became unclickable and the battery was unable to hold a charge prematurely, followed by it swelling to the point it could no longer fit in the mouse. As I understand it, Razer has improved over the years, but I find little inclination to support the brand.

    Corsair Ironclaw RGB Wireless

    The most comfortable mouse I've used. Using BlueTooth in conjunction with a K63 Wireless SE.

    I have a SteelSeries Sensei 310. It's wired, ambidextrous, and has 7 buttons. I bought it because it's shaped like the SteelSeries Sensei Raw that I replaced. The Raw was still functional, just showing wear after many years of use. The 310 fits equally well in my hand and the buttons are intuitively placed. It tracks just fine on the SteelSeries mouse pad I got with it.

    The newer Razers look nice, same with the other mice people have posted here. The last Razer I had was a Boomslang CE 2007.

    I need a mountain of buttons on my mice ... Otherwise they are unusable to me. My home/leisure mouse is Razer Naga Epic Chroma and my office/work mouse is Logitech G600.

    Had my G600 since launch, that mouse is invulnerable.
