    So, I went away from PC gaming for awhile and have recently purchased a new NB with 7970M HD so I'm starting to get back into the swing of things but the mouse I'm using is the Logitech M325 (cheap cheap wireless).

    You guys seem to know your shit, so I'm looking at the M60S from Corsair (though a few people posted they had issues with it) or the SteelSeries Sensei RAW (Rubberised)

    Thoughts?

    I have a Coolmaster Sentinel Storm Advance, i love the feel of it (i have a wide palm and grip with my palm), it is however starting to ghost and looks knackered, anyone use this mouse and move on to something similar size? (currently thinking of getting a RAT 7 to replace the CM)

    Logitech G7.

    It suffers from random freezes for unknown reason (a well documented problem with no fix).
    I took it out of storage after 3 yrs to have one more crack at repairing it.
    Battery charger is dead (I finally narrowed fault down to broken USB cable).

    I love wireless mouse but after all the problems with this one, I'm not game enough to spend that much $$ on another wireless one.

    My Microsoft Sidewinder X8 has been rock solid. Would like a new mouse but all the options out there are not very appealing.

    I got a Razer Deathadder 3500 DPI mouse. Had it for around 2 years. Great mouse, not much wear on it at all quite surprised actually cause I'm a heavy counter-strike player. Thinking of getting a new mousey soon though and that's always a hard decision. :)

    i got a rat9 as a birthday gift and it died 7 months later. lost the receipt and went to try warranty and they were more than happy to forward me a brand new mouse before even sending mine back in the mail. very nice company with sort of 50/50 mice. they are quality built though i think some have a sensor issue though thats what was wrong with mine it died.

    - good configuration

    Logitech MX Revolution - Great mouse but no Mamba
    - good tracking
    - great range
    - good build quality
    - great configuration

    Microsoft WED 8000 (bluetooth mouse)
    - poor tracking
    - good range

    How's the Mamba's battery life? How long does it last?

    er. i suppose its not fantastic (compared to others) a charge should get you about 8hrs of gaming... but has an easy charging dock and the option of being a wired mouse if the batteries run low while gaming. I think you can get a better battery life if you drop the polling rate, but I don't plan on doing that.

    Ah, fair enough. Never had a wireless mouse, don't like the idea of it.

    well the mamba would be perfect, it can be a wired mouse and the 1000hz polling means it tracks like a wired mouse when running wireless

    Ive have a mx 1000 for years. awesome mouse. on the heavy side but worked for me. quite a large mouse so perfect for big hands.

    now im onto the logitech g9x. smaller mouse but ive got huge hands so every mouse is held in a claw style. fantastic tracking and cannot complain.
    Brother has a sensei and i do like it but when go back to my g9x i think its fine.

    Steelseries Kana black here.

    It's no frills on buttons and looks but works really well, can't fault it.

    i was trying to use the M950 as a gaming mouse and its no good, so now its a windows only mouse.
    So i went and got a G700, and it took some good amount of hours to get adjusted and tweaked, but ended up being better for gaming as a wireless gaming mouse.

    I had ALL the wireless receivers on 1 USB hub. Ive now shifted them all to individual usb ports on the back of the PC and it responds even better now.
