Does anyone here use a specificly designed gaming mouse? I haven't ever used one, but plan on getting a new mouse pretty soon, so I'm just wondering if it's worth dumping in the extra dough for one. Anybody have any experience with them?

Here's [COLOR=Red]my thread[/COLOR] asking the same thing last week. I had some really great feedback, perhaps it will help you as well.

Now I say that was a tough descision. I would have put it in General Gaming though. As its about "Gaming Peripherials" would you put a thread about a MadCatz mini console controller in this forum?

I don't use a "Gaming" mouse, a standard 3-button with scroll optical mouse USB is all I need. Optical, and a scroll button, is all I'm willing to pay extra for.

I just laugh at the concept of the "Razor Boomslang" mouse :lol:

No I don't think they are worth the extra money, just get a high res Optical mouse. Gaming joysticks, and controllers are a different story.

I have a MX510. Its red though ;)

And a damn great mouse -id recommend it to anyone. Its iptical, and comes with both USB and PS/2 connectors. It has seven buttons - and a scroll ball thing. It does 5.8megapixles/second - so no lag. An excellent mouse.

I personally wouldnt spend the money on a "gaming" mouse, i beleive a mouse is a mouse, if it works its good, but, i only use optical, optical would have to be a minimum for a mouse.

I'm currently using an M$ Wireless Optical. Despite the popular myth that wireless units are bad for gaming, I can hold my own quite well in any FPS with it.

Soon, it shall be replaced by an MX1000.

I don't know where that myth came from. However I don't have the patience to wait for a mouse to charge. There is also the chance of interference, from other things. However, I've never heard of problems, even due to interference.

USB is just an old, and reliable technology, proven. I'll wait a few years, before I reluctantly give up my wired setup.
