    My Logitech G700s is becoming more and more shit as time goes on, so i'd like a new mouse. Any suggestions?

    i'd prefer something that
    • is wired
    • has 2+ configurable buttons
    • doesn't give me carpal tunnel syndrome
    • doesn't break the bank (<$100)
    • would last a while

    thanks in advance!

    Considering that it is my go to mouse of choice and that I have two of them, I can tell you for a fact that at first glance it did not seem very ergonomic at all, it's actually incredibly comfortable to use. The mouse has quite a nice weight to it and is in my honest opinion very well balanced, of course if you so desire you can adjust the weights and balance to suit your needs.

    It's actually pretty sturdy and very hard to break considering it has an aluminium base, trust me, I cant count how many times I've thrown mine at a wall. I'm amazed that it's still working but it is falling apart. If you aren't planning in following suit, I see no reason why it wouldn't last a good two years or so because mine is still alive.

    It has an 12K DPI Optical Sensor alongside 8 buttons that use Omrom switches, all of which are programmable in CUE, you can remap them to any mouse button or keyboard key, as well as create and assign macros. It wouldn't be a mouse without the dankest of RGB Lighting, they actually use Addressable RGB LEDs, so you get some cool lighting effects that you can use or make in CUE, lighting profiles can be saved to the device.

    Quite inexpensive compared to other "premium gaming" mice on the market at just $50, if you do end up purchasing the mouse, I'd highly suggest you consider buying a Corsair specific mouse pad to use, they're made specifically for the sensors that they use in their mouses. I personally have MM200 Wide from them, unfortunately that product is EOL.

    TLDR;
    Wired.
    Ergonomic.
    Weights.
    Unbreakable.
    8 Programmable Buttons.
    Macros & Addressable RGB LED Lighting profiles.
    $50. (Amazon)

    I've got this gaming mouse last Saturday at a discount from £35 to £20 cheapist well known brand gaming mouse in the UK retail shop called Maplin.
    SteelSeries Rival 100
    My Quick Review: Feels quick with my claw hand play, first time using a gaming mouse while first impressive pretty good, all I wanted except is a little heavy while picking up placing with my claw hand play, you've listed how long it would last but I as I said, only brought it last Saturday.

    A2's wanted features from that mouse:
    • Wired.
    • Two left side configurable buttons from SteelSeries Engine 3 software.
    • UK: £34.99p Coverted Dollars: $45.83c (Might change due to different currenties.)
    Other important things I like to discuss.
    • Doesn't give me carpal tunnel syndrome.
    Here's a video of a vertial mouse for that type of syndrome.

    I prefer a more basic mouse.I bough a $8 invicta and it serves me well. Sometimes the simplest devices and up being the best. Who needs such expensive crazy shit?

    Why settle for just Simple and Cheap? Why not Simple and EXPENSIVE?!?!?!

    I get that they need to make back the money they spend on R&D, but seriously? Do you REALLY need to spend a lot of money R&D a mouse like that?
    SMH to the people that fall for this shit.

    I have had it for a long time. If you use the scroll wheel a lot, it breaks easily. It also doesn't click really fast, but has some buttons on the side. My brother has the death adder, much better mouse if you don't include the numbers on the side. I have the 2014 version too, the regular and special addition one. Got both w/ a sale.
    I own this mouse currently, better than the Naga, I love it.

    I have been using the Razer Deathadder (Chroma) for about 2 1/2 years now and it still works like new. It is the most comfortable mouse I have ever used and it is extremely responsive. With a price tag of $60, you're getting a really good product. This mouse has everything you're looking for @A2.
