    I've been using a Naga Hex for a few months and have nothing but praise for it. The six buttons on the side are very easy to reach but also really hard to push by accident, and it isn't stupidly over-sized like most gaming mice are. I can set up any given game so all I need is the six mouse buttons plus ctrl and shift as modifiers. It's been pretty handy for shooters and TERA, since I need to keep my attention firmly on my digital environment and can't afford to get lost in keyboard buttons.

    I took one look at that when I was shopping for a gaming mouse and had nightmares of robot uprisings for a week. Try not to get assimilated. Also, isn't it kind of unwieldy?

    Yes, assimilation occurs! :(

    Unwieldy, does that mean not suited to hold? Seeing as it's fully customizable it's the only mouse that suits me. I've got fairly huge hands. :up:

    Pretty much mean if it's difficult to move around? Those things look heavy. I remember when WoW's Cata expac was coming out, they released a special Cata-edition mouse that was, no joke, as big as my entire mousepad. My hand set flat on top of it and couldn't reach the side buttons, and it's not like I have tiny hands. With my hex, I can wrap it with my fingers and let my palm set on my mousepad, which is comfortable to me.

    Logitech G700 now, thanks to a birthday present a couple years ago. I can't do the gaming mice with the dozens of buttons - far too big for my hands.

    Nope, very easy to move around, even palmed on mousepad. It's actually pretty small If you don't use the pinky-rest and adjust it to the smallest setting. Most noticeably, its very light if you take all the weights out. I know about the 'old' WoW mouse, and yes. it was pretty horrible. Steelseries' new one should be a lot better tho.

    Razer Naga 2013 currently, before that I had the original Naga and that lasted me two years. It took me about 2 hours to get used to the thumb control and since then any mouse that doesn't have a 12 button keypad on the side is lacking for me.

    It's not just a great MMO mouse but for any game at all, it's precision and DPI make it completely viable for FPS's especially. I can run round in CS and use my thumb to switch weapons without ever having to move a "critical" finger.

    The criticism I would give it though is that the plastic contact that connects the physical mouse button to the click sensor inside wears away and then starts physically double clicking as the contacts slide over each other. It took about a year and a half for my original one to get to that point, however, you can just unscrew them, put a bit of solid plastic glue on the connector (some people say wax but I find due to how malleable it is it you have to replace it after a few weeks), level the glue off and let it dry. If you level it off properly it can last for about 2-3 months before fixing it again :p.

    I tried out the Razer Deathadder to replace the G400 and liked it much better. Recommend to anyone with larger hands looking for a comfortable mouse. The buttons on the G400 were just too small.

    I'm using QPAD 5K Laser, it's the best mouse I've ever been using. The only disadvantage is that it doesn't have that many buttons. But its comfy as hell so I go with it anyway!

    It's from the unknown Swedish company QPAD. I really recommend them since they have great products and a really good warranty (up to 5 years).

    Razer Naga Hex here, I had the 12 button ultimate for a while but with my thumb size I ended up keybinding groups of buttons with it. With simple alt and ctrl modifiers I can still easily get 18 side binds on the Hex, more than enough for most games. It also has two buttons directly behind the mouse wheel, that's actually my favorite part about the mouse. It seemed pretty lightweight when I first got it but 500 hours of D3 and a year of WoW raiding later it is performing like new. Better than I expected and well worth the money.

    I've got a Razor DeathAdder that I bounce back between my desktop and laptop. My desktop itself just has a dinky stock mouse :(

    Razer Naga here, but I definitely don't make optimal use of the side-buttons.

    My naga died too. As did my Deathadder. Repping that MX518 hard, it's such a great quality mouse. I really need to stockpile more for future, when no longer made.
