    Hi all, was wondering if there was a particularly good gaming mouse for around the £50 mark? Wireless preferable though I suppose not essential...

    Whatever happened to the Razer Diamondback? Steelseries do some good stuff.

    It's really a matter of preference, but spending £50 on a single peripheral (apart from a speaker) is just alien to me. I doubt i'll ever spend more than £10 on each mouse and keyboard (Logitech Classic 200 and Logitech Pilot).

    If it ever broke, you would RMA it and they would send you a replacement. The mouse is immortal :p

    A year ago or so you could get your hands on Razer DeathAdder for £30. Don't know what happened to their pricing.

    I would like to recommend Razer Lachesis, but it has an issue with Z axis tracking that REALLY bugs me, so I'm looking at mice myself and the MX518 looks good. Can you replace the beaten metal or whatever thing it has on top with something less tacky?

    You can always get your hands on a Batman Limited edition of this mouse. That's what I did when I grabbed on for some £18 more than a year ago :p

    Get the MX518, really is an awesome mouse for the price, and as said, if it breaks (which it probably wont) send it back and get a new one from Logitech.
