    I would highly recommend the Red Dragon Perdition or Red Dragon Legend. They are simply better set up then the Razer products I've used. 

    Like the Razer products I've used they have a button pad on the side with 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0,-,+. But where my Razer Naga  had slight ridges on every other row of buttons so you could tell which one you have your finger on, Red Dragon Products denote them by slanting them in opposite directions. Compare: 

    Razer Naga
    Red Dragon Perdition

    You can easily see how it's far more easy to hit the right buttons on the perdition, and I can verify it's a much better setup.

    The current one I'm using is a bit more pricey than the Perdition but comes with 16 buttons on the side instead of 12, a button on the top left, and 4 buttons behind the scroll wheel.

    My only complaint is the bottom two buttons below the scroll-wheel are not programmable. One allows you to control the light mode on your mouse (lol, useless) and the other allows you to change your mouse mode which is actually kind of useful. You can change different settings on your mouse such as your sensitivity so that, say you're playing an FPS. You could have higher sensitivity when going room to room with a shotgun and lower sensitivity while sniping, and that's adjustable with the click of a button.

    Given these buttons are lower and hard to reach though, they aren't really positioned for practical use during an intense fight anyhow.

    Razer Naga IMO is awesome but any Razer mouse comes with the best software any mouse can get. Every button is programmable, from keystroke to macros. There is nothing you cant do with a Razer mouse. 
    You can do that with the Logitech gaming software too :)
    My wifes logitech mouse cant make every button a macro, unless they have changed something over the past 6 months.

    Try a G600.
    I had 2 Nagas before and both broke within a year (same problem every time, the left button)
    It's almost 2 years since I bought the Logitech, never had a problem, still working like a charm.

    I suffer wrist issues and have been using the Evoluent which defintely helps but it is not an ideal mouse for gaming.  Anyone else have wrist issues who can recommend another gaming mouse.  The problem with the typical gaming mouse is the prone position tends to aggravate the wrist.

    You definitely can with Logitech Gaming software.
    Define your command, which can be many things including a multi key macro, then assign it to any button.
    Just like for Logitech keyboards.

    Yes absolutely every button on the Logitech can be changed to another and even multiple keystrokes. Just use the software. Been doing this for years.

    Thanks everyone gave me some good suggestions and even brands that weren't on my radar. No idea what I am going to do. I guess it depends on the sales coming up.

    if t were me i would just buy the same mouse again if it lasted you a couple years and you are comfortable with it. that isn't terrible for a gaming mouse with extensive use. i am on my third naga and have a 4th chillin in my closet in case this one goes bad lol

    Another Logitech if you liked it and it lasted for a good while.

    I was a happy G5 user, I didn't like the G500 as well afterward though. Didn't like the Razer Naga. Happy with my Corsair M65
    I miss the G5...  Such a great mouse for its day.  I actually buried mine in the backyard and gave it a little tombstone.

    Get a g600 instead.
    I broke 2 Nagas in less than a year, same problem for both, the left button.
    The G600 is rock solid and the inclination of the 12 lateral buttons allows you to find the button you are looking for fairly easy.

    I use a Logitech M570 Wireless Trackball because of previous wrist issues.  I know it's not a "real gaming mouse" but the two shoulder buttons are a huge help - I map them to Shift and Ctrl and it effectively triples what my left hand can do.  In combination with a left-hand keypad (Orbweaver) I have no trouble running 40+ keybinds in FFXIV.  The fact that I don't have to move my hand to use it is very helpful as far as keeping my joints happy.

    I had nearly the same experience except the G600 didn't work for me. I claw grip my mouse and the G600 is hard to use that way, good mouse otherwise though.

    I ended up with a Corsair Scimitar and I really like it:

    Looking to get a new mouse for my wife. She doesn't need extra buttons, she right now using some cheap 5$ mouse.

    She works on her pc using a fingertip grip and has small hands.  Her hand from wrist to middle finger tip is just under 7inches.

     For example she finds my g600 far too big, it too wide.  I looked at the link someone else posted on page one and while it has nice reviews it neglects to mention much about the materials used on top of mouse.

    I am trying to find one the wont get all sweaty, since she works on the pc daily plus like to play some games.

    I used to love Razer mice, until I started going through one every 6 months (left click issues every time). Which is odd, because I don't play Mobas and I've never really been hard on my mice. It might stem from my giant hands and me naturally pressing harder. I then moved to the logitech mouse, which was a nice mouse, but just didn't fit right with me and to top it off, after 8 months developed the left click issue. A few months ago I decided to try a Corsair Scimitar. I absolutely adore the mouse. Fits my hand great, and with the adjustable button slider I can get it in a decent position so that I can actually use the 12 side key buttons (though I rarely do because I'm not used to being able to do it yet - Giant Hands/Thumb). But yeah, I recommend the Scimitar highly.

    The thing is that it is rather impossible to judge what mouse will be most comfortable to use, you seriously need a store with physical access to them to judge that.

    We can tell you what works best for us and if they are high quality or something that falls apart after a few months but you should never buy a new type of mouse without actually trying it first.

    I like the scimitar myself and would get one if I wasn't hooked on trackballs. :) My buddy have one.

    Best quality mouse I had was a Roccat Kone, it fit my hand well with good access to all buttons.
    There is really only one rule to mouse buying, which is only buy a mouse you can physically try because they are vastly different in size, grip, button location etc. You don't go buy a g600 you have never held just because the g500 was good, as those model numbers may be completely different to hold. It is a very important piece of equipment. It does not take many years of bad moise usage to get an permanent injury.
  • FlyByKnightFlyByKnight Member EpicPosts: 3,967
    That Logitech G600 is like a sturdy version of the Naga. I've dropped the G600 so many times it SHOULD be broken yet it lives on.

  • kitaradkitarad Member EpicPosts: 5,934
    Yes G600 is indeed a good mouse I have 3 , I buy them when the price drops to replace the ones I am using and so far touch wood they have lasted well and not yet needed to be replaced.

  • PhryPhry Member LegendaryPosts: 11,004
    I don't think i could use one of those mice with the side buttons, i control the mouse with my thumb too much, which would mean i would be having numerous side buttons depressed randomly all the time, after all this time i doubt i could learn to use a mouse without holding it with my thumb, i have big hands after all, but about the only recommendation i could make when it comes to gaming is, don't buy a wireless mouse, batteries die at bad times, they don't really last that long once they have been recharged a few dozen times either, which is not ideal.
    You could always try a mouse like this however  :p
