    Here's what i use for gaming, good old logitech. I play mostly FPS, TFC is my favorite. I noticed nobody listed using anything like this, maybe you should give iit a try, once ya get used to it, you'll never regret it.

    Well, it does take a bit of getting used to it, but once you do its well worth it. I use it for everything, except Photoshop, got a lil wacom tablet for that.

    Being left handed I cant try tracker balls due to the buttons, I had an optical micrsoft mouse and that was ok if i set the mouse sensitivity to medium or high but on fast mouse moves the senser couldn't keep up . Maybe the newer models can, so I use the a ps2 ( I know but there wasn't a usb version when i brought it) intelli mouse 5 button one which fits for lefties too. £12 at a compy fair.

    ive used 3 different trackballs 3 button optical 5 button optical 5 button cordless optical 2 buton ball and 3 button ball and a touchpad thingy and decided that
    trackballs while good for C&C suck cos they gunk up quickly
    5 buttons gets in the way
    cordless opticals and ball mice r just too heavy
    and ive worn a hole in the paint on my 3 button optical mouse buttons and it skips too much cos it was cheap oh and i hate ergonomic mice :)

    can ne one suggest a sensative hard to skip optical mouse with (preferably) a long lead?

    or is that a bit too much?
    :confused:

    I have a MS IntelliMouse and I couldnt be happier!

    Its fast and accurate and I love the extra mouse mouse buttons. I play TFC all the time and I have each button bound to something, plus when I hold Q the side buttons and scroll wheel change functions.

    My only complaints with it are that it doesnt like me moving too fast, but since its sensitive enough i dont need to move to fast anyways. And i wish it wasnt red...

    MS Intelli explorer deffinately THE best*

    NOW - All the top tourny players (UT,CS,Q3 etc) use USB (for refresh, duel lasers even).

    AT THE END OF THE DAY IT'S WHAT YOUR HAPPY WITH THAT COUNTS.

    Errrmmmm hate usin the keyboard anyone know where I can get a "Claw" or similar device in UK?
    Also Lookin for an outlet who can provide me with one of the everglide mats, no not the rubbish Giganta ones the others with pictures on em.

    CheerZ

    * In my opinion.
    Happy pointing how ever ya do it!

    MS optical Explorer still does me fine after 1 year, the only thing I have changed is my mousemat, im now using an Everglide gigantica one with the Q3 logo on it. Works beutifully but my m8 has a Logitec IFEEL Mouseman optical and I would prefer that to a MS optical. It feels soo comfortable and looks awesome. I would recomend that to anyone buying a new mouse for gameing, or anything :p Ifeel mouseman
