?? You are wasting your poor gaming mouse. Pick up a cheap ratpadz, and you will see why I say waste. It makes a HUGE difference.

I love my Razer now. When I first picked it up I felt it was uncomfortable until I got used to it, because it forced me to use a lighter touch than other gaming mice I tried. Now that I'm used to not having my palm wresting flat on the mouse, I love it though, my aim is alot more precise. As for pads, get a hunk of frosted glass with the edges rounded. Best setup I've ever had.

Razer makes some good mice and that's the truth. Logitech also makes some great mice, it really just depends on what you want to spend and what you want to do with your mouse.

I went from using this Logitech Mouse to using this Razer Diamondback and I gotta say it's one h311 of a change.

I used to think the G5 and Razer Copperhead were neck and neck. I used to own a Copperhead thought it was a nick above the G5, because of the build quality. But when I got my new Razer Lachesis all bets were off it makes all other mouses look like crap, so if u can get this.

holy **** great price too, nice!

but i'll stick with my G5... and i just want to share something

I bought my mouse in NY over the holiday and it was missing 3 weights and the manual when i brought it home... so i was a little p.o. but not too much since it was 30 bucks...

SO i called logitecha nd was like "Can you possibly send me a new weight tray and manual?" just to see what would happen.

Omg... they are sending me a whole new mouse... rofl and apparently i can keep my old one. YAY 2 g5's lolz! run my mouses on SLI mouse pads and own lol..

Yeah, the Lachesis owns (check my sig ). Best Buy had a display of them on Black Friday. Same price as the Razer store. I picked mine up then.

I've always been a Razor fan, I have the DiamondBack, its a really good mouse in terms of DPI and accuracy, plus its light.
