Need a new Mouse, suggestions?

I'm going for a Usb driven wireless mouse.
Anyone want to suggest some super great devices?

edit:
I use my computer for a bit of gaming and Graphic design.

Logitech MX Revolution
Razer Mamba
Logitech Performance Mouse MX
Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000
Microsoft Wireless ARC Mouse
A4Tech Big Thumb Optical Mouse (wired)
Logitech G5 (wired)
Logitech G7
Logitech MX 518
Creative Fatal1ty
Logitech EX 100 (desktop bundle)

"
My opinion is that the things one makes constant daily contact with, such as a keyboard, mouse, etc.should be right and no expense should be spared in acquiring the best one can afford." -From somewhere on the interwebs-

i would like to add that the balance between confort and cost is a very individual thing.

As far as I'm concerned there is only one manufacturer.

Logitech.

All the others are cr*p, but that is my personal opinion, not a rule.

Which model is very personal.
I recommend going to a shop that has them all on display for you to try.
After you made a choice, go home and find it cheaper on the net,

Hehe, i see.
The one i got now is actually a logitech, it came bundlet in a set called
Logitech Cordless Desktop 1500. i love the mouse and keyboard
but i seem to have worn out the left-click button so it slips when holding down.
so after i buy a new one i will most likly try to fix it and have it as a
backup in case something horrible happens

I favor Logitech also. I use a trackball at home and the work systems have an optical mouse. Both are acceptable.

If you're doing a lot of gaming and design, you might want to look into a trackball - less arm movement.

If gaming is important - wired mice were always preferred to eliminate any trace of lag from wireless - not sure of current status of this

Trackballs are great for gaming, until you try FPS - they just don't hack it when it comes to FPS, IMO. That being said, though, I still enjoy the hell out of using one just to mess with people's minds....

Amen. +35 gazillion

I personally use the MX as my primary mouse, and also have installed a Logitech Optical Tackman Wheel for those times when my MX desperately needs a charge - an I still need my fix of the Internet....

That new Darkfield mice look interesting as well....

Hmm, I use the Microsoft Wireless Arc Mouse and it pretty good.

Folds up, takes a beating from kittens knocking it off the desk, 3 year warranty, gets a decent 2 months on 2 aaa batteries (never turning it off)

If it DOES break like my first one did Microsoft will send you one for free, brand new one, both the mouse and the dongle. They even ask what color you want because they don't care which you choose.

Heh, I am still surprised they don't request the broken mouse to be sent to them first.

EDIT: Half awake so sorry for the sloppy all over the place post.
