    I'm not sure about the Deathadder for extended gaming use, but it is certainly a nice, comfy mouse for everyday desktop stuff. I picked up a cheap one earlier in the year and brought it into work to use at my desk, rather than the crappy 99p Dell things we're provided with by default. I've had an amusing number of colleagues go "oooh, that looks nice" but then recoil in horror when I tell them the price (despite my protestations that it is "quite cheap for a gaming mouse").

    I prefer something with a little more weight for gaming, though; fairly happy with my Corsair M65 at the moment, though might be tempted to look at other options if there are any nice New Year deals.

    Can't say it'll get extended periods of usage. I only tend to play for 2 to 3 hours every so often but it'll be a massive change from the shitty hp mouse I've been putting up with.

    It was the razer keyboard I wanted and it made sense (to me) to pair it with a mouse so I only have 1 utility running in the back servicing them both.

    Helps that it looks quite cool. Will look good on my desk

    I got the Corsair RGB 65 or whatever. I like it, way better than my last one and instantly improved my performance at FPS games (probably not any more than any other quality mouse, of course). It can glow all the colours of the rainbow but, more importantly I can turn them off as well.

    What's the best computer mouse? I'm not having much luck with mice lately. The last one I had (A Logitech G303) sometimes moved 2 pages when I clicked something, and the one I have now sometimes moves up and down when I scroll.

    Depends on how big your hand is, what grip you like and what you use if for.

    This chap had some good reviews when I was changing my mouse not long ago (my old one was a bit small and I was claw gripping it giving me cramp after a long session, ended up going with a G403 wireless)

    @gamecat Why do my mice stop working after 6 months-a year?

    I use a claw grip, and I want a mouse for everyday internet browsing.

    Usually cable issues or dirt gumming them up I guess, I had an MX518 for about 6 years straight though, so they don't all suck for reliability. Steelseries low end mice are pretty good for general use & gaming, Rival 100/110, should be under 30, or there the 1000s of no-name mice for about a tenner on Amazon I spose.

    Do you think it's because I'm on the computer all day everyday?

    Probably, most are only rated up to so many clicks,etc before being expected to start failing. Also it may just be me but wireless mice also seem to get knocked around a bit more. Knocked off the desk or the arm of a chair,etc.

    I tend to have one mouse for gaming and a cheaper one just for general PC use. Although I do end up just using the cheap mouse in games too when I can't be bothered switching them, or its a game that doesn't really need the better mouse.

    What would be a good mouse for someone on the computer all day?

    Admittedly I'm not very picky about mice but just for general day to day I have had no complaints with the Logitech M185, although it may be a bit small for some people.

    I also picked up one of these for use on my secondary Media/emulation PC and it also seems fine. Also cheap enough to be pretty much disposable if need be.

    For gaming I have a Logitech G602. Which, you guessed it, seems fine.

    Could they also stop working after a year because I eat in front of the computer?

    Replaced the microswtches in my 518 a couple of times. Depending on the design it's really not that difficult and extends the life of a mouse you have grown used to. Still regret finally binning that little guy.

    Give them a couple of drinks before a good session.

    Most of the gaming ones are rated for up to three kilograms of Dorito dust per year.

    Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury. I have massive hands, so take my advice with a grain of salt.

    But it's the best mouse I've ever owned, and much higher quality than anything Razer have ever made.

    I have a G502 Proteus Spectrum and love it. Not too expensive and the customizable buttons are very handy.

    My Roccat Lua (entry level light 2 button + wheel + dpi switch button gaming mouse) was broken, as in an increasingly defective left mouse button led to increasing annoyance. I loved it so much that I just wanted to get a replacement, but they didn't have one left for €30, only bundled with some mouse mat for €40, which was somewhat annoying as I have good mouse mats.

    Tried everything else they had there again, and again found that I just can't get to grips (ha ha) with the shape of mice from other companies (Logitech, Razor, etc.), and eventually decided to go with the €45 Roccat Kova (8 buttons + wheel + dpi switch button). It's a little larger and heavier than the Lua, but still fairly light and flat so that it still accommodates my palm-resting-on-mat style better and felt generally more comfortable than anything else I tried from the other companies.

    And damn, I'm loving it. It's great. I always liked the idea of more buttons, but most of those mice I've tried before were too bulky and most of the time I didn't like the button placement. This one however is really sweet. For that price, highly recommended.

    I need to go Logitech again.

    I bought a Logitech G400 in 2012 and I'm still using it. The wheel has gone a bit soft by now, but after half a decade of heavy-duty use, everything still works. Very impressive. In comparison, the Razor DeathAdder I had before lasted only 2 years.

    Logitech has earned my customer loyalty if this mouse is any indication of the durability of their products. I'll give this one a burial if it ever does give up the ghost.

    So after three weeks of using the Kova, I went back and bought another Lua. Even the Kova was a little too bulky and heavy for my liking as a fervent tip gripper, I liked it but it never felt as good as the Lua. I'll miss the extra buttons, but nothing beats the immense speed and precision of the compact lightweight Lua. Of all the mice I've ever held in my hands, up to €150, the Roccat Lua is simply the best. And it's €30. Seriously, just fuck everything else.

    That said, if you're a palm or claw gripper, avoid the Lua like hell.
