soon it will be christmas and my birthday so i hope that i will get a new mouse as a present...
but - i can't decide which one to pick because there are so many. i was browsing the cheap stores in my area's sites and in descriptions i read that razer deathadder is really top of the line mouse made for professional gaming and it isn't even that expensive. however, then i saw the genius ergo 525 which is only half the price of deathadder, yet it offers switching between 400, 800. 1600 and 2000 dpi on the fly and it also has interesting shape.
i also tend to do some gaming on linux and deathadder is said to have OSS drivers for it and are still in development i believe, but i haven't found any specific drivers for ergo.
so what are your recommendations? does anyone do gaming on linux?
I have the ergo 525 and is very good for it's money
Whatever you do, do not get the new microsoft gaming mouse.
I have a razer copperhead and my bro has a death adder. Must say the death adder feels great and probably worth getting.
Never heard of the ergo 525 before....
The Ergo looks like a logitech. I have the G5, I like it.. :]
I have a microsoft wireless laser 6000. It feels really nice for everyday stuff and some gaming, but it doesn't have the abilities of the G5.
What is this place?

You can never go wrong with Razer mice. Not very expensive, great performance, great feel, LED lighted.
hmm razer is still a little too expensive for me, since i'm not a hardcore gamer. but what about logitech mx400? is it any good?
i don't really see what's so special about razers except that they are led lighted? they do dpi switching, so does ergo. they support 2000 dpi, so does ergo.
To be perfectly honest I haven't ever really seen the point of these "gaming" mice. These days I use a wired optical mouse, before that I just used a wired ball mouse. I play strategy games, and I considering that I have always been one of the better people playing I don't think it makes a huge amount of difference.
Razor offer better mouse shape for better comfort, also better response times and will last longer in the long run. The Ergo does look like a cheap rip off of the G5/7 mouse. I have a G7 and love it, look into the G5 its the wired version of the G7 and itsnt to expensive for a gaming mouse.
