I'm still using a primitive ball-mouse, which gets messed up with dust and dirt every few weeks. Any recommentation which optical mouse I should buy? it should be exact, good for aiming, not too expensive and so on.

Microsoft Intelli Mouse Explorer v. 3.0 Logitech MX500 Optical Mouse

I use the Explorer v. 3.0. Its light weight, and has enough dpi for most games.

Never tried the MX500, but it is said to be Logitechs answer to Explorer v. 3.0..

The MX engine is the most accurate engine in the world. Go with it. I have the MX500, it's on a shiny surface w/ no mouse pad and it's still amazing.

Tom, ever heard of the Razor Boomslang? Suppose to be a 1600dpi ballmouse. I was wondering why mice are made with that high dpi count. Wouldnt you need incredibley high sens to get the dpi advantage? Or am I way off?

I just checked, and it's actually 2100 DPI! Holy shit! Windows XP automatically limits it though, so without a registry hack, it's useless...BTW, although the MX series is about 800 DPI, which is good enough for me....processing speed (measured in megapixels) is an important factor, and as far as i'm concerned, the MX is a more ergonomically designed mouse...although it lacks the feature of on the fly sensitivity changer....

I have the Logitech Cordless elite duo; works great for the $$ but the mouse doesn't include a charger and burns the shiznit outta AA's.

I have an optical chordless Memorex MX4350RF, And it works great and comes with a recharger, And it doesnt burn the hell out of the batteries either, It has a good aim for online gaming, Once you get used to it which can take time if adjusting from a ball mouse with a chorde on it.
