    Your G9 is ALREADY feeling worn out? What's wrong with it? I would contact Logitech, they are brilliant with replacements.

    I bought it the day it come out basically and it's wear and tear mate, the feet are worn, and if I am honest I am just not liking the shape for pro-longed gaming sessions.

    My Razer/ Microsoft Habu mouse is still running pretty awesome...

    Try something Razer - they usually impress.

    I've got a copperhead, but the new ones that are 4000 dpi are apparantly where it's at, though I'm extremely happy with my copperhead. Only thing is the mouse shape on the copperhead is for both lefties and righties so it has no real natural curve. The new one that's 4000 dpi (lacosa or something like that) does have some curve to make it feel more natural, and clan mates have said they loved theirs.

    I recently (couple of months actually) bought the razer 4000dpi Lachesis mouse. Great mouse, it is for both lefty's and righty's but i do not mind this at all. All reviews comment on it being awkward shaped yet this has never affected me at all, probably it has benefited me.
    Great mouse for gaming and general purpose, however a few little things are very annoying. The software that is shipped has obviously not gone under any testing before release and razer are reluctant to fix it for some unknown reason, for instance you are suppose to be able to save different profiles yet this feature does not work.

    As you already have a gaming mouse i assume you have a mouse pad, however if you don't it is a must with this mouse to reach its "full" potential

    Edit: you can buy replacement feet for your g9 if you cant find a suitable mouse. here

    Mouse pads make very little difference, i doubt 1/1000 of a second is going to make a large difference...

    Tempted by the Lachesis but I have read in reviews it suffers badly from the slightest tip up, causes the cursor to fly off course? also for drivers since using Logitech I really don't care for mouse/keyboard manufacture drivers, I tend to stick with Vista's own.

    They make little difference in speed, however they help stop the mouse feet deteriorating so quickly.

    not quite sure what you mean here, there was a problem with irregular movements but this has been resolved in an update.

    Firmware or driver disk update?

    What the life-time on these mice? really fancy getting a good two years out of it if they are as comfy as I am after, having used a copperhead before I feel it would be a better move than the weird feeling G9.

    Firmware

    Quality wise they are fantastic, as long as you have a good mouse pad to prevent wear.

    If your right handed I would go for the Deathadder. It is the most comfortable mouse I have ever used and is only £35 on scan. I have owned a copperhead as well and it beats it hands down.
