    Best Gaming Mouse?

    Right now I've got a junky $20 Optical mouse from Wal-Mart, and I'm getting really sick of it. So I'm gonna buy me a new mouse in the next couple weeks. So far there's two I'm looking at, the Logitech G7 and the Logitech MX1000. I'll be using it for all types of games from RPG's to FPS's to RTS's. I want something that's fast response, and must be wireless. I'm sick of cords. I'm leaning more towards the G7 because of it's ability to switch between optical resolutions, but I wanted to ask what you guys thought. Any of you used either of these mice? Or anyone used any other wireless mice for gaming that work nicely?

    Also, what about gaming controllers? I was looking at the Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2, as it's wireless and looks to be a well build, high quality gamepad. I'd mostly just use it for sports games, like Madden NFL and NBA Live, and a few emulated games here and there, so all I'd need is just responsive buttons.

    Thanks for the input.

    The G7 allows you to control the sensitivity of the mouse on the fly. For that reason, I wish I had that over my MX1000.

    However, the MX1000 is an outstanding mouse.

    That's what I was thinking... being able to slow down the mouse when sniping and then pop right back into high sensitivity when you jump into a tank. Seems like it's the best gaming mouse on the market right now. Unless someone else knows of one better?

    And.. don't forget the latest one the G3. I just read about it on Tech Reports.., and it has a really nice menu control adjustments for perferred gaming or high -low DPI.
    The drawback is that it is not hand fitted, and mor like the older mice we knew back then.. Sleek....and its cordewd I beleive also. Got a 8 out of ten.., and only negative was the size and feel. I'm sure if you looked in some retail site it would be there (PIC. )

    I will never go back to a corded mouse ever. Its like cable TV. Once you have it theres no going back. This ole Logitech MX700 is still going strong, but the enamel is wearing thin and missing in spots. I bouhgt an extra set of batteries and if you can believe, I am virtually using the same set the ouse came with after four years. Yeas.. four or more years. About once very year or two i switch to the other set.
    This was one of the better buys for its day, unlike most computer parts where you constantly have to upgrade or spend money all over again.

    Well, if the G3 is corded I won't even look at it. I'm sick of cords running all over the place, and especcialy sick of having my mouse cord get stuck against my tower and me not be able to move it, and then me die in a game because of it.

    So far the G7 is looking to be the best buy for a wireless gaming mouse.

    Yeah, I've noticed that too, and so that's where I plan on buying one. I saw one go for $40~, so hopefully I can get one for that cheap.

    Well, I definantly love the extra buttons on the MX1000, but it doesn't have the ability to change DPI on the fly (ha, DPI on the fly, that rhymes, I'm so good). So I think I'd sacrifice the couple buttons for that, since I'll be playing a lot of different types of games with it.
    I'm gonna look into that Razor a little more, but I don't think it has the ability to change the DPI, but I may be wrong about that. The colors are definantly awesome, I'd definantly give it 5/5 for the style.

    Edit: OK, the Razor DOES have sensitivity adjustment (DPI on the fly )

    I will always buy Logitech . first and foremost. They are at the top of the class in this area.

    Lets face it... if there was a contest.. the last five mouses put out were all by Logitech.. and they were 'best ' in thier class and first for faster DPI versus controllibility. A+ porducts

    I got to play on my friend's G7, and the sensitivity change feature was so cool, especially when playing in Battlefield 2. I could turn up the sensitivity when I was running for quick reactions, and back down for sniping so it could be ultra precise. The mouse is just plain cool.

    If anybody would tell me how to open up one of these things for cleaning, I would give the Razer a thumbs up.

    However, as of now, my Razer has oil and dirt stuck in the wheel, and I have no idea of how to open it up for cleaning like what I normally do with other gaming mouse.

    Sleek and cool design for Razer, but they overlooked the after-sales and the long-term issues that customers are bound to experience. Or maybe they don't expect you to open it up to clean, just throw it away when the wheel gets stuck finally and buy a new Razer.

    I've used both the logitech g7 and the razer copperhead. Both are sweet mice and both allow you to change sensitivity on the fly. If you have big hands i would suggest going for the g7 it's alot more comfortable. The buttons on the copperhead seem to be alittle awkward for me.
