Ask DN: Mouse of choice? [PC Users]

Anything you could recommend? My 5 y/o Logitech MX 620 has served me well but the sensors have been really buggy for the last year and a half and it's become too clunky in my eyes

    Logitech MX Performance is the best mouse I've ever had. shortcut buttons are great and fits really well in the hand.

      Yeah, Logitech do pretty awesome gaming mice. I've had a G9 for around 5 years now and it is still a beast. Also, (and I assume that this is available no matter the Logitech mouse you choose) but the software that came with my G9 allows me to set up profiles per application. What this means is that I can have the DPI and shortcut buttons change automatically depending on the active application.

      As I'm a Mac user I have also used a Magic Mouse, but it doesn't compare to my Logitech G9.

    I'm on a Mac but I use the Logitech MX Performance mouse. I've had it for 4 years now and it works perfectly. Also works on glass surfaces. http://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/performance-mouse-mx

    For PC I don't think I'll ever forget the first time I laid eyes on the beauty that is Logitech MX518. It served me well from 2005 to 2012 without breaking down. The successor, the G400, is just as good and far from pricey.

    On a mac (ie, when I'm working) I'm totally loyal to the magic trackpad. Spaces are the best thing ever, and there's no better way to navigate between them.

    I'm a Mac user, but I use the SteelSeries Sensei Raw Rubberized. (http://www.amazon.com/SteelSeries-Sensei-Gaming-Edition-Rubberized/dp/B008OQTQSO) It's a fantastic gaming/work mouse. Very precise and comfortable. The matte finish ensures that it doesn't get covered in fingerprints.

    I would recommend the Mionix Naos 8200, i currently have one of these at home, it makes for a great gaming and work mouse, has a high 8200dpi sensor and the best feature is the ergonomic design, i have had some trouble with my wrist and the wider ergonomic design of this mouse is super comfy for extended use. Check it out here http://mionix.net/products/naos-8200/

    I’m a Mac user, but I work with a number of Windows developers. Having tried a number of mouses they all seem to stick with the one that comes in Microsoft’s Ergonomic 7000 pack (though everyone has a different keyboard).

      Is it not possible to just buy the mouse? If so, thats a really bad deal considering mechanical keyboards are infinitely superior to rubber dome and buying a Filco is already £120 or more. Paying £100 for just a mouse (if you don't use the keyboard) is pretty bad.

        Mouse is only available as part of a set. Pity, but it’s probably worth the investment if you’re going to be using it for 10 hours a day. Our devs mostly use the wired Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 keyboard (myself included). Some use the Filco Majestouch.

          I guess it is all to preference at that point. I still believe that if you ever try an mechanical keyboard, you wouldn't really want to go back to rubber domes.

    I use a Roccat Kova[+], which in my opinion has the best price-quality ratio.
