Default Good wireless mouse?

I'm looking for a good wireless mouse for gaming and general use. Prefer it to have some programable buttons and around $40.

untrue.. i love my wireless for gaming, far better than my old corded mouse.. battery life lasts like 3 months... and even when the battery is low, it lets you know.. i've never once had problems with my Microsoft wireless laser mouse 5000

No wireless will ever compare to a corded mouse, not any time soon anyway, despite what you might say.

The response time, being main issue. If you dont like the cord buy a bungey thing and you wont notice it.

g7 if you have to go wireless.
mx-518 or a g5, both great, g5 being newer and only 10 dollars more.
razer copperhead, what I have, i would never trade it. i love the feel, the programmable buttons everything. I have one macro button that shoots, delays a few miliseconds and then shoots again, perfect double tapping for FPSes.
