Need a new mouse

I have a corsair M65 mouse and the right button has started to become unresponsive unless I push deliberately and hold the button down. It is pretty annoying. The mouse is about 3 years old, I liked the mouse but was hoping to get more than 3 years out of it.

Anyone have any suggestions.

I have tried the mice with many buttons on the side but my fat fingers don't work with them very well. I don't like small mice either and wired is preferred. I don't play nearly as many games as I used to. I do play all kinds of games so I don't need a mouse designed for one kind of game, but am not opposed to it.


Also I previously had a RAZER mouse and was not that impressed by it. The price seemed way to high for what I was getting.

Thanks in advance.

Edit:  I am right handed and more of a palm grip person.

    Apart from not getting more than 3 years out of it (which, for a gaming mouse daily driver - is not that bad), was there anything you were looking for different than your M65?

    Not sure.  I was just wondering what people were using others found superior products.  It seems like the new M65 has lights and it causes the mouse to feel a bit warm.  Not sure that is something I want.

    I have a m65 - a bit over a year old I think. It does have a couple of LEDs on it. Doesn't heat up at all, and you can turn them off with CUE. I like the shape, weight, and L/R click of the m65. The scroll wheel could be tighter. I have to disable the size thumb buttons because they are too sensitive for me and I hit them accidentally a lot. The snipe button is next to useless for me, but it's in a spot that doesn't cause any issues. The coating on the mouse is rough and it actually made my pinky sore where it would rub, but after a year+ of use that coating has worn off in all the offending spots.

    Not having found a worthy successor to the old Logitech G5, this has been the nearest best thing I've found to date.

    I've not had good luck with Razer but a lot of people swear by them. Logitech quality-wise have been ok but I have to watch out for anything with rubberized coating (which seemed to be nearly everything when I was last mouse hunting a year ago) - after a few months that gets slimy and disgusting and I haven't found any way to clean it.

    A soldering iron and part number: D2FX-X-XX (NO push-button). It will be 3 contacts through hole. Take your wick and iron, remove the offending part, replace. https://www.omron.com/ecb/products/sw/13/d2f.html

    Save yourself a lot of money. (I keep a box of them -- same part number on about every mouse L, R, M3/M4 (M7/M8 on non-windows systems.)

    I am exactly with Ridelynn. 3 years is pretty good for a mouse. M65 has probably been the best mouse I have used since the Logitech G5.
    I would need to dig deeper to see if one now offers mechanical switches in the mouse.

    I have been using Steelseries Rival 300 for competitive CSGO for quite a long time now and it is a really great mouse, in my opinion. Check out some review.

    You seriously should get down to a store and try out a bunch to see what fits your hand best,

    Comfort is the most important thing in my book and since people have different sized hands it is hard to suggest something best for you.

    My MX518 must be a rare breed at at least 17 years old and not showing any sign of slowing down then.

    A rare breed indeed.

    I also don't care for the gaming mice with multiple thumb buttons on the side that are arranged like a keypad - it's way too easy to press the wrong button at a critical moment.

    But there are many gaming mice now that use different arrangements of thumb buttons that make each one more distinct and easy to distinguish. I prefer these to the ones that spread additional buttons around on top: I want to use my thumb for all or most of the hotbar skills.

    I still use a mouse that is now discontinued but you can still pick-up old stock here and there. It's the Cyborg/Madcatz MMO7 mouse. In addition to having 12 distinct thumb actions, 5 of those are on one button that acts like a mini 5 position (up, down, forward, back and in) joystick. 

    If you can find one of those somewhere, I highly recommend it

    It used to be expensive in the $120 range when it first came out. But if you can find one these days, it'll cost you around $40-$60.

    I just wish other current mice would copy that 5-position button design. Once you get used to playing with that for your main 5 abilities, it's tough to go back to another scheme. That thumb wheel is also great for 2 abilities: clockwise and counter,

    I always found the thumb buttons on the RAT7 to be annoying. I also had some issues with the sensor wandering on it.

    Yeah the rat7/mmo7 has lots of quality issues.

    I'm using Logitech G502 atm and I'm very happy. I'd recommend it :smile:

    Edit: Your hand is similar to mine so seriously you should try G502
