  3. $130 for a mouse???? Fuck naw. I have a microsoft optical mouse :p and I do as well as anyone ^.^ you don't need to pay 130 bucks for a mouse with 30 buttons, just pay 20 for one with 3! (I also don't like a huge mouse, but that's just me)

  6. I have a Deathadder, It's perfect. It's much bigger than my old one but it's a perfect size. Got the normal 3 buttons and then 2 added on the side, Which I use to switch to last weapon and as an " e " ( Use ) substitute. Get a mouse mat aswell. Playing without one for a month was one stupid mistake I made.

    I've had the same mx518 since about 2003 (freshman year of high school, woot woot). My friends have had theirs fail after years of abuse, but mine has lasted all these years. 518s are still the same price they were back then, roughly. But to really purchase a good gaming mouse, you should determine how you hold your mouse in the first place:

    A friend that I played 1.6 with for years used both the 518 and the DA. He liked the DA more for his grip style. They both cost ~$60.

    The 518 is good for claw and fingertip. Never used a 500.

    It depends a lot on your hand size. If you have larger hands, the 518 is a lot shorter and more round than a DeathAdder is, so for my hands, it makes me curl my fingers in order to grip it. The DA is much more comfortable to have full palm coverage for my hand-type. If I lay my entire palm on my 518, it smothers it too much for me. :p The base of my wrist ends up dragging on the mousepad, which throws my aiming off.

    Everyone is going to have their own opinion on what is good for what, though.
