I have a logitech g602 that is showing its age and I'm thinking about replacing it soon

I originally just got it because it was low latency wireless, but I've started using all 6 side buttons for renoise so a mouse with lots of buttons is kinda essential now. the razer naga looks like what i want, though I'm used to the thumb rest so I dunno how that will go.

mice sure are expensive these days

post your mice.

I also have an elecom HUGE at work and it is the best trackball, period. I like switching inputs throughout the day to mitigate RSI.

i picked up the MX Vertical a while ago on a recommendation by another yosposter and my wrist pain has decreased dramatically

i'm past my prime years as a reflex response gamer, so it's not a big deal outside of what i've lost with age

i really want to like the HUGE but it's too small

the MSTE was better, and i have a kensington expert in my cubicle at work

anyway i have some older razer mice that i use for everything. diamondback 3G for personal and the white version (pro click, i think they called it. the original one, not that weird wireless ergo thing they have now) for work.

I have a G603. Just as with high frame rate monitors, once you've used a 1000 hz mouse, you can't go back. G603 was for me the most comfortable one that was wireless with that reporting rate.

The greatest mouse of all time, though, is the G9. I still have mine and have repaired and refurbished it multiple times to keep it running. If Logitech would make a 1000 hz wireless version of that mouse I would never need anything else

i only mouse for fps gaming, and for fps gaming the logitech g pro superlight is the best mouse ever made. it will not satisfy you if youíre a many-button tungsten weight person, but if you wanna snap to some headshots it will do you no wrong

also whoís picking wired only? wireless mice are a solved problem in tyool 2023

you need to open your mind, wireless mice are great now, and most of them donít even need to be turned upside down to charge

g502 hero is what i got this year and it's fine. due to the unique customizations god gave my hands at the character creation screen, i can't use mmo mice so i just use this. it's nice but i've got it loaded with all the weights and theyre not enough so i want to do a stupid youtube video worthy prank and find somebody to mill me replacement weights out of tungsten

i have a g502 (don't think it's HERO though, might be an earlier revision?) and overall like it but i had to replace it once after... i think the middle-click stopped working correctly? i like it though
