Default toss between mice!

untrue , the razer diamond back/logitech mx518 dont have laser engines (and just to make it clear incase you got it the wrong way,the fact that both are optical have nothin to do with the engine)

I had the choice out of those two mice and went for the MX518 due to on the images it looked more comfortable, and it turned out it was, it is a nice solid lump in your hand.

The side buttons can be used for anything (haven't tried using them for ingame uses though.) Things like undo, close application etc. all things that you don't need.


What ever you get, I reccomend getting a mouse mat. I was like "what is the point" at first but it was worth it.
