Hmm yeh Best Buy does have a M9x on display along with a few from the Razor series, so I'll head up there tommorow and check em out.as of now I'm using a VX Revolution

And I only use my palm to move around, it isn't extremely comfortable but still a nice mouse, I'll see though, thank you for all the input

Personal i could not live without my Logitech G5. I have bigger than average hands (can palm a basketball but just barely) and it fits like a dream. It has weights that can be adjusted and up to 2000dpi sensitivity that is adjustable on the fly. I have used it for over a year now and it has not gave me a single problem. I am probably going to buy another for future use just in case they stop making them.

Those mice are good, but not as good as mine.


Rofl, I plan to get a G5, G9, & Lachesis on my shopping spree. 40% off at Fry's, and I get can get free stuff, thats overstocked, and never bought by anyone.

i have an OCZ Equalizer. It's not as high end or as expensive as the logitech's but it foes 2500dpi and I love it. One of the main reasons I went for it is because I'm a lefty and most of the high end mice are made for right handed users, but the OCZ is ambidextrous.

That kind of mouse isn't very comfortable to most people.. It hurts a lot for your pinky... :'(

I have a razer lachesis and like it a lot, but I had a copperhead before and loved it, it fit my hand perfectly, but it broke and newegg replaced it with a lachesis which is an odd shaped mouse for me, either way.. I'll stick with razer products, I've never felt so in control lol..

If you ever get a Logitech mouse and have Setpoint installed...get the uberOptions add-on. So much worth it. Had it when I used my MX518, and I could customize it much more than the stock Setpoint software.
