I took that upton was saying "this mouse" is not expensive, where it is. Not saying anything about a cheap one that he can get. Maybe he just loves his current.

Default Re: Mouse issues

I love my current, and thats why I'm still using it even though its busted

I'm slowly looking for a cheaper mouse that has the features that I love about my current one:
Wired, dunno why but I like it.
4th and 5th button on the same side and vertical, makes gaming easier for me.
Heavy, I've kept 20g-30g worth of weights in it, gotten used to it.

Other than that, I don't use the macro function and always keep it on 800dpi.

Was looking at the X5 but it got less than stellar reviews.

I used the Logitech G4 in the past. Dunno if that's what you want.

I want a Sidewinder X8, or a new one of the version I have.
Don't want to spend ~$80+ for a mouse though, *sigh*.

Didn't realize how lucky I was to get this mouse and my G15 keyboard for <$100 together until now (yay Circuit City liquidation sale).

Eyeballing the Logitech G300.
Might have to hit up BestBuy and take some mice for a spin.

I recommend this one: Newegg.com - Mionix Naos 3200 Black 7 Buttons USB Wired LED-optical 3200 dpi Mouse

It is 3200 dpi. I am using it's big brother (same body, more dpi).
Newegg.com - Mionix NAOS 5000 7 Buttons USB Laser 5040 dpi Mouse

Here's my review of the Naos 5000: Mionix Naos 5000 High Performance Gaming Mouse

Update: Hit up Office Depot and snagged a Logitech M500.

Not exactly what I was looking for, but at least it works.
Hyper scrolling might be my new best friend, or my worst enemy, time will tell.

I see it has the tilt-wheel feature. I found when I got used that function on my V450, I missed it when I move to my MS mouse. I wish all mice had that.
