The G9x, with its new laser sensor, features on-the-fly adjustable sensitivity and an interchangeable grip.
While playing with this mouse I noticed it had far superior sensitivity to the G500. Being able to change the grip wide load or precision does make it more comfortable – maybe that’s what you’re paying an extra £30-odd for.
Snappy on-board memory allows up to five gaming profiles to be configured and stored with the Setpoint software. I fell in love with the full spectrum of LED colours that can be used to match the rest of your Logitech ‘G’ gaming kit.
This is the most customisable mouse I reviewed, but, a penny less than £90, it's still over-priced considering you can get the Razer Imperator for almost half as much.

The Razer Deathadder was the first of the Razers I tried and it felt nice in my palm, while the soft blue glow of wheel and glowing Razer logo radiate quality and precision.
The five large comfortable buttons on this mouse have an almost audible click, and feel solid and well made. The G3.5 laser gives high sensitivity and precision and excelled in WoW PVP. Teflon feet reduce drag which added to the gliding feeling even without a dedicated gaming mouse mat.
I was also impressed by the driver updates for the Razers. They seem to really care about regularly updating what other manufacturers probably consider to be minor issues.
This mouse is also available as a left-handed model.

How can you miss out the classic intellimouse explorer?
Only £20, and you still see more of them at LANs than any of these other hussied up abominations.
Comfy and responsive! for smaller hands, try the Razor Diamondback
I need the buttons. It's why I also have a Nostromo...
Nothing wrong with a cheapy ( Microsoft Laser 6000 WIRED )
I liked this mouse so much I bought four, still have a spare. OK its a few years old but it really is a sweet mouse. Maybe microsoft realised it was too good and hid it quick...
Why pay more?
Sidewinder Gaming Mouse
The original sidewinder reviwal is in fact superior to any of the three "improved" models. The main innovation was to provide vertical side buttons that are easy to press with your thumb inside a game and each subsequent iteration has made it worse. The original one with chunky aluminium buttons does not look pretty to marketoids but it's best so far for games.
Still in sale and dirt cheap by now as well.
