    Its great! I used an Intelli mouse Optical for years before i made the change. It slides much more smoothly than my old mouse and it has a nice weight to it. It has performed flawlessly in every game i have used it in too so there is no worries about wireless lag. The GF thought i was mad spending £45 on a mouse until she used it lol.

    They sell for between £30-£50 on e-bay, its where i bought mine a couple of months ago.

    Aye, i wanted a G7, but never got round to buying one. Will probably end up getting the Deathadder at some point (MIE3 shaped mice for the win!).

    Only problem with the G5 is that it has a cable.

    Once I used a wireless mouse, I just can't go back!

    The G7 is the wireless G5 with hot swappable batteries.

    They are on Ebay, but you really want the carbon fiber version, which is hard to get hold of a damned expensive (at around £50-£60)

    I bought a classic Intellimouse Explorer back in 2000 (or 2001, I can't remember), and I've been using it daily ever since. (Graphic design, gaming, and regular office use)

    If I get another mouse, I'm going to try to get the same body-style. (Meaning the oversized thumb buttons and old-school click wheel.) Over the years I've just gotten so used to the tactile response it gives for clicking and scrolling, not to mention just the general size and location of the buttons, that it is always difficult to switch back to a standard mouse and be as accurate/comfortable.

    Psh, I love having a cable, its one less thing to **** around with and it doesnt exactly get in the way or anything. A friend of mine uses an MX1000 and has shitloads of problems getting it to pick up his mouse correctly.

    The Logitech MX Revolution is the best mouse I've ever used with the most amazing scroll wheel.

    I actually like the shape of MX610 more, but right now I find myself using the MX518 because the MX610 has been out of batteries for a couple of weeks (worst reason ever maybe). I've been trying to find the ah-so-famous latency with the wireless mouse, but maybe I'm just not good at noticing it.

    Another vote for the MX1000. Beautiful fit, great shortcut buttons placed really nicely. And rechargeable! Fight to the death to get a rechargeable mouse if ever possible, it'll save you a world of irritation and money in replacing AAA batteries dying the moment you need them most.

    +1 for the IME, but ATM I've got a wireless Logitech jobbie that came with my keyboard. Prob looking to replace it before I go to i32/i33.
