    Absolutely love my new sidewinder X8. I'm a full wireless convert now (only if it's this good though).

    my razer copperhead suffered a problem with the button, it still worked, it just wasn't as responsive as it should be. It was used alot thou and lasted about 2 years.

    my lachesis and deathadder have had no such problems thou, so maybe the problem is with the older razer mice?

    I still swear by the Logitech G9. Great mouse. Pricey but it'll last ages.

    They're not dents. At first they really confused me. My housemate has one. The dent effect is just that..an effect on the hard outer plasticy layer.

    I can assure you its perfectly smooth :p

    I can vouch for the mx518, but not for the G500 (squeaky click) or the G5(right click started to double up).

    All depends on your grip though. I've got a wrist claw grip meaning I don't move my arm, preferring to use my wrist to move the mouse.
