So a few years ago I picked up a Razer Ouroburous, or however its spelled. While its not a BAD mouse, I quickly found that I didn't like it as much as all the cheaper mice I had previous to it. It ran me about $140, while my Razer Deathadder I had before was less than half that. Ine fact, I've found that when it comes to both mice and keyboards, the more expensive options aren't always better. I'd say most of the time, the cheaper, simpler options are the way to go. What you're mostly paying for with the keyboard and mouse "high end" are useless extra buttons you don't need and won't use, as well as fancy custom colors that are the PC version of gimmick. That's it. In terms of form and function, the more affordable gaming boards and mice are usually more comfortable, more user friendly, and just do what you really NEED them to do.

So that Ouroburous...I only used it a few times. Then I switched back to an old Razer Imperator I had, which is kind of like a not-as-good version of the Deathadder. But I still liked it more than the Ouro. But a few days ago, my Imperator started double clicking everything which I've found out is a major issue with them. So I needed a new mouse.

After a bit of research...I decided to get THREE new mice, all for less than $50 each...so all three equal out to what I paid for one Ouroburous. And I'm willing to bet I like all of them MORE. Because they all follow the rule of simple, comfortable, easy. And even these mice had more expensive versions with useless extras that raised their prices by as much as double.

So these are the ones I went with:

  • Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury

This one looks really slick and is said to be lightweight and very comfy with great button placement. Got rated best overall by many sites. Has a more expersive version that costs double with useless features.

  • Corsair M65 FPS Gaming Mouse

This one is supposed to be one of the best specifically for shooters and mouse oriented pointing shit. That red button on the side is actually called a Sniper Button...you press it and it steadies your aiming to make headshots easier. Otherwise, said to be very comfy.

  • Razer Deathadder

Last but not least, I got myself another Deathadder. Most comfortable easy to use mouse I've ever used so I figured I can't go wrong here.

Three for the price of one overpriced gimmick.
