    Hi all,
    Right click has started doubling/multi clicking on my Zowie EC1 Evo, am going to try and see if I can take it apart and if giving things a bit of a clean etc will be enough, but thought I'd get some recommendations for a potential replacement.

    Haven't paid any attention to the peripheral market for a couple of years so not really sure what the good options are.
    I like my Zowie, being slightly larger than an average mouse I think, just a couple of side buttons (one would probably be fine actually, don't do much online gaming anymore but when I do I like the side button for push to talk), other than that not too fussed, with regards to branding, colour etc.

    Suggestions?

    They're such a subjective thing it's hard to make concrete recommendations.

    FWIW, I've liked my G403.

    I second the G403 or rival 310, coming from a Logitech M518.

    I really like my Razer Naga Epic chroma.

    yes it needs Razer Synapse but I have had zero issues with it. Its a chunky size which I like and infinitely mappable. I have a whack ton of profiles setup for it from gaming to photoshop to general web browsing.

    Oh I know a mouse is a very personal thing, but as I said I don't even know what half the companies that now make mice are called anymore haha, so some general recommendations gives me a starting point to narrow things down :)

    Have realised I've got a Microsoft IntelliMouse I'd taken into work which has a side button, so may just start using that for now and wait until there are some deals for a mouse, as don't really want to spend £40+ on a mouse at the moment which is what a lot seem to be costing!

    I might have a spare MX Master (used) or MX Master 2S (new - unused) if either might be of interest?

    I'm still quite a fan of the G500-ish series from Logitech. I use a G500s (Although I have had to replace the left click switch on it) on the road, and a G502 at home.

    The G500s is six years old in four days, and the G502 is 3.5~ years old.

    Wouldn't use anything other than an MX Master scratch that my MX Master S2 has the same issue as my MX Master where the rubber by your thumb gets stuck down meaning you can't move the mouse pointer. Yeah you can use force it back up but it damages the rubber.

    For gaming I am a big fan of Logitech, having gone from a MX518 to a G402 via a Razer Death Adder that fell to bits. My favourite thing about Logitech mice is how rarely they fall to bits.

    For everything else I have some Anker vertical mice and a Logitech one.

    I have a g502 at home and a MX Master 2s at work, both have been great for over 3 and 2 years respectively (though the MX Master gets a ton more use, and is thrown into my work bag regularly).

    +1 for Steelseries, they do a more wallet friendly range also, Bit-tech has a review on home page.

    I use the MX Master 2S at work and love it. The MX Master 3 is supposed to be better in almost every way. It is, however, too laggy for competitive online gaming.

    I somehow managed to score a G 903 for $60, so that's my wireless gaming mouse at home. I upgraded from the Steelseries Rival 710, which had an OLED screen and tactile feedback, but so few games used those features in any meaningful way and I'd rather lose a wire even though I like the look at feel of the 710 better.
