Default Gaming mouse razer vs. logitech

Honestly i have no idea what kind of mouse i want. i use a standard logitech now so i think the shape change to a g5 would be weird, the logitech g3 is pretty much the exact same shape as my current mouse. also from what i hear alot of people prefer the diamondback/copperhead anyway.

so what do you guys think g5 or copperhead?

and is the only difference between these two copperheads on newegg the one has weights?

MX-518 is better IMO...The G5 is good as well however I just think the MX-518 is a better buy.

The MX-518/G5 battle has been going on for ages and most prefer the MX-518 because its a few bucks cheaper.

Go to a Best Buy or another electronics store that has them out on display. Try the feel of each one. That's how I decided on my Razer.

See which one YOU like the best.

yeah i know what you mean, and personally i like the feel of the razer better. i just want to see how it slides and weighs and works with my mouse pad, basically in my environment. i guess i'll just end up buying my mouse at the store that way i may return if need be.
