    "Been using my Logitech MX-518 for 6 years now, I have yet to find another mouse that feels as good to replace it with."

    +1

    I started with the 418 I think (red) wore out two, replaced them.
    bought another one for a mate as a thank you gift (his was a generic POS)

    I couldn't get them anymore - so now have a 518 at my house, one at work, one at my brother's house and one at mum's house.

    Nothing else I've looked at it comfortable - Micro$hafts usual offerings seem to be for neanderthals or pigmy based life forms.

    Hey its all personal preference - I started with an mx518, went to a g5 then to the g9x. Will try and stick with the g9x as the quality is great. More the size and weight, the mx518 is a lot lighter.

    Haha i have a CM storm Sentinel. i would recommend it, but since yours has died, most probably due to malnutirition, you need to feed your mouse with good mice food! I wouldnt recommend it.

    I'm a claw gripper and have small hands.

    Logitech G3 was perfect! Still using it at work.

    Razer Lachesis - Wierd design, could not get used it. :sick:

    Logitech G9x - Squeeky scroll wheel, but overall great mouse and great feel. Got it 2 weeks ago, still trying to get used to it.

    I had a Logitech MX1000 for a few years since about 2003, bought it new for about $145 :eek: . Then changed to an MX1100 when the MX1000 died. I also use a DiNovo set with MX1000 at work.

    I have one of those lying around. The casing quality leaves a little to be desired, but the sensor rocks.

    About to buy one of those from the forums. I'll be overclocking it to avoid the lag of 125Hz, but the DPI is more than enough for me. 800 DPI for life.

    I was really considering getting that, but I want something with (programmable) buttons on the right side. I bind the front-right button to the mic, so I can use my pinky or ring finger.

    I currently use a Copperhead and love the shape. The sensor is moody on most surfaces, though, so it's limiting. If only Razer didn't ditch that shape after it. 'twas perfect.

    I have an original Logitech G9. I cracked the shits with my logitech wireless thing before I got it (laggy, and wouldn't charge properly half the time). It's been great, the spinny scroll-wheel is awesome and it sits really well in my hand :)

    I think keeping the hole free of dust goes for all mice.
    I got dust in there once, and I almost lost a game of COH to my girlfriend :Paranoid:

    G500, worthy replacement of the G5 that started multi-clicking after 4 years.

    Microsoft X5. First time using a mouse that has macro buttons. Decent weight although the mouse buttons 1 & 2 feel a little flimsy. Overall I have found it great.
