    Today I got a new mouse, the Microsoft Arc. It's a pretty nifty mouse with the whole folding design and such. Very smooth on any surface (I mean any), comfortable in the hand, feels a bit soft due to the matte finish. Got it for $97 at Officeworks (Australia). Might post some pictures some time.

    While we're discussing mouses, perhaps I should point out that I can haz a Razer Copperhead. It's awesome.

    It did at the start, but its great once you get over the fact you're using what seems like a wafer thin arc. I still haven't gotten over it yet though lol.

    @eSquire, that Razer Copperhead mouse looks pretty awesome [​IMG]

    We used to have a couple of Evoluent Vertical mouses at the office

    Anyone familiar with them? I never had carpal tunnel syndrome so I really can't tell how efficient they were.

    I haven't had the pleasure of using a Deathadder, but from what I can tell the Copperhead is technically superior anyway =/

    LIES!!!!! Deathadder looks awesomer and runs awesomer than the copperhead... sort of on number 2.

    Well, I got the DA because I went to Fry's Electronics to find out the the mouse I wanted (G5) was way to tiny for my gorilla hands. The side winder felt like a lego contraption, but the death adder was big, and right handed ergonomic. and it had lights!! [​IMG]

    i has a logitech lx7. its what alot of my friends that game use, very nice for a wireless (the invisible optic thing is trippy, no flashy red light) my last mouse was a bluetooth one that came with my laptop, and was a piece of shit. this one is good.

    amen. I love my deathadder. I love the rubberized top. It helps with my sweaty hands [​IMG] and I also find it the most aesthetically pleasing out of Razer's line.

    I have a Sidewinder mouse, and I'm pretty sure I'm the only one on the internet who likes it.

    I'd have to agree. But $95 for a mouse... Ouch. That is pricey x3

    I have some generic Logitech Mouse... Nothing special bout it x3

    I want a Razer Mamba but apparently they're somewhat buggy...Never had a problem with my Copperhead, though.
