Fighting game forums are all about showing off your arcade stick. Music forums are all about showing off your instruments of choice. Diablo forums should be about showing off the electronic rodent who will be clicked in rapid succession until MANY demons rue the day. So what is your mouse of choice? Which desktop warrior is leading the charge?

I'm very tempted to pick up the SteelSeries one:

But less because I want it and more because of the tagline 'Time to click ass.' I also apologize to everyone who thought this topic was going to be about placing small creatures into postboxes.

How about you guys? Who's got the best mouse on Giantbomb?

My Logitech G5 lasted about 4 years before I busted the scroll wheel. I replaced it with a Logitech G500, which has an improved scroll wheel and an extra thumb button. Pretty much the same otherwise, which is pretty darn good.

Think I got it for £20. Pretty good and accurate.

The Cooler Master something something or other (actually, it's the Storm Sentinel. I just think gaming mice have stupid names).

The only reason I'm using it is because it ended up being free bundled with the case I bought awhile back.

Not that it's bad or anything. It has a tiny OLED screen, and any mouse where I can change the LED color to pink is okay. Plus it's nice and heavy with all the weights. I like a good weighty mouse.

To be honest, I was happy enough with my MX 1000 (Logitech's first laser mouse).

Yup totally, plus the mouse button is on a hair-trigger, so clicking is really fast.

The cheapest Logitech mouse that didn't look awful (I'm looking at you G300). Also, I hear the MX518 was really good.

Logitech G400

Nothing special, just a Kensington Pro Fit, but I like it.

I personally am using a Razer DeathAdder mouse. I bought one about a year ago with my new rig and liked it so much I bought another that I brought to work for everyday use. It's got a great weight and size that fits my hand really well. I'm not one to program a ton of buttons, so I'm just fine with just the back and forward thumb buttons on the side.

Microsoft Sidewinder X8.

Has two thumb buttons as you can clearly see and the red block below it is a tiny dot-matrix screen which shows the current DPI selected using one of the three DPI-on-the-fly buttons under the scroll wheel. DPI values are assigned outside of the game via the mouse control panel. There's a button near the thumb buttons that I think is a macro setter, not sure, never used it.

#19 Posted by Shookems (474 posts) -

My 518 is starting to get a little ratty, with the plastic covering on the sides starting to sort of flake off. After this thread I may pick up a G400. I love the MX518 so much.

MX518 is a classic; such a good mouse!

The G400 you're using is the successor to the MX518. I'm using a G400 too and loving it.

Yeah, I know. That was the other reason I chose it over the G300. The first being it wasn't $50+. And I also really enjoy mine.

All around a nice enough mouse, and it have served me well for some time now.

I would, but in-depth tests of the mouse's sensor- which, after all, is the most important part, bells and whistles aside- show that the R.A.T. mouse is one of the most inconsistently sensitive over a variety of surfaces. Probably not enough for the average user to notice (unless you're playing on some surfaces, I've seen complaints about it not working on various desks or whatnot) but I'll take a nice Logitech over that any day, cause you get ergonomics, weight, AND consistent sensors.

MX 518 here too. Still going strong 6 years later. Hell of a mouse.

Apart from the constant glow, it's a pretty nice mouse. Fits my cute little hand perfectly.

This is the last and only mouse someone needs. I've had mine for almost 6 years and still going strong.

#35 Posted by Jimi (1126 posts) -

My MX518 got a bit worn down so I bought a g400 to replace it. I now use the g400 when I'm travelling and my g500 at home. I would have gotten another g400 but the allure of customizable weights was too ridiculous to pass up.

I tried a deathadder but it didn't fit my hand well, my hand was too big for it :/

#36 Posted by Cronus42 (276 posts) -

I have thought about moving on to something with side scroll and a few more buttons than just the back forward on the thumb. nothing crazy as the Razer naga, but a few more mouse hotkeys for Diablo and Dota2 and EVE wouldn't hurt.

This. I got it for free from Logitech when my G5 broke after using it for 3 years.
#38 Posted by Tesla (1944 posts) -

DeathAdder here as well. It fits my hand perfectly and looks cool without having superfluous buttons. All I need is that on the fly DPI switching, which it does.

Plus the blue lights match my laptop LEDs.

Me as well. Picked it up on an Amazon lightning deal. Best mouse I've owned but this is the first mouse I've owned over $40.

#43 Edited by allenibrahim (374 posts) -

Simple wireless mouse. Nice weight, good size, not too much click resistance, and a fantastic wheel. I love it, but I'm also of the opinion that actual gaming mice are a waste of money.

Well... what surface other than a mousepad does one use with a mouse? As long as it works on one (which it does) it's doing it's job.

Anyway for me the sensor isn't a big deal, I perform equally well in shooters with my RAT than I do with my old piece of shit Dell mouse. It's more about the comfort, the speedy clicking, and the adjustable sensitivity.

Picked this up specifically for D3. Typically I feel a little awkward with ergonomic peripherals but this feels great after a brief warm up.

The button below where the thumb rests is sneaky and I figured it out on accident. Enough binds to do what you gotta do.

#46 Posted by Ben_H (3428 posts) -

Korean Logitech G1 I bought of Ebay. Cost $25 including shipping and I prefer it to my old G9X, which costs ~4x more money. Super light mice are the best. Wow that thing is shiny, I never noticed that.

Crappy iPad picture of my mouse. Yay for not adjusting settings!
Also, that Razer mousepad (That is a Goliathus Speed to be exact) is much better than its Steelseries counterpart, the QCK. My old QCK started having the edges roll up after about 2 months and by a year in, all 4 edges were separating from the rubber backing, since I kept rotating the mousepad so I could avoid making it worse on one side. This one, which costs a bit more, is not only thicker, but it also has that nice edging stuff that keeps it from fraying or rolling up. Well worth the extra money.

Try not to be too jealous. It was free and it does the job. Nuff said.

#48 Posted by NorthSarge (254 posts) -

I have a Logitec MX510, all too similar to the MX518 that a bunch of people here love, but i have to say i've had this thing for somewhere bordering on 7-8 years and its still alive. Should probably upgrade soon, there is some serious wear and its getting a bit unwieldy looking, like it survived through war or something.

Anyway, Its simple and works very very well.
