I'm using the Mamba. It kicks ass and gives you the choice between wireless or wired.

Cant go wrong with the logitechs. They're amazing. My friend uses the G7 which I'm played with. Feels very comfortable and has 2 batteries so while one charges you can play with the other, and it lasts days. But really you should hop into a store and hold a few. Thats the only way to know which of the mice you'll like.

I use a Logitech Laser Wireless Mouse M505. Cost me $40 on sale and has almost no hub. Seriously, you plug it into USB and it barely sticks out a centimeter. It's really nice.

It uses 2 AA batteries and, as I was told in the store by my friend who works there, it will last for practically a year on normal use with those batteries. From their experience with one. The batteries also gives it enough weight to feel right without the pull of a cord.

The complaint I have is that I had to get a black one, cause that was all the store carried that day. :-/ Also, the click wheel is hard to press without the wheel turning. Takes a bit to get used to that, but it will also let you scroll left and right!

I'm a fan of Logitechs

My brother has the G7 and it is a very nice mouse. I have a Microsoft Habu and I don't really like it. I've never liked the Razr branding of mice.

Razor feel extremely light. I prefer my mice with a bit of weight on them.

Yes, plus the ones I've used only start using half their features when you have their quirky software installed.

hmmm... went to bestbuy and...
Logitech vx revolution - wasnt there prob because it was made in 2006?
logitech anywhere mx - decent, not too small but could be slightly larger
logitech vx nano - seems smaller than anywhere...
mx revolution - fits well, large size good comfort but could do without so many buttons...

All of them are good for comfort and i think vx is same since it has similar shape to others.... The other suggested werent there really - they had pretty much MS and Logitech mouse i think with 2 dynax or something...

See if you can find the G7 elsewhere. Its probably the best one.
