The Razer Mamba seems like a super-refined version of the Death Adder. It can be used in wired or wireless mode and is equally impressive in both. It comes with a nice glowing dock. The only issue I have is with the connector, which is intricate and fiddly.
The Razer Mamba is an exceptional product. This would be the best wireless gaming mouse you could buy, if it wasn’t over-priced and over-packaged.

Type Wired / Wireless
Razer’s latest mouse, the Imperator, is the first mouse with adjustable thumb buttons - you change them using a slider underneath the mouse - and is all about comfort. I found this made all the difference after a few hours of grinding in WoW.
Hopefully this unique selling point will be picked up by the next generation of gaming mice.
All of the seven buttons on this mouse are programmable, and you get to adjust sensitivity up to a ridiculously twitchy 5600dpi.
Overall, this is a superior product from its on-board profile-storing memory to its teflon feet, and it's only 55 quid. This mouse certainly gives the gamer the most bang for his or her buck.

Ten Essential... Gaming Mice
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.
