    I use this Logitech G600 knockoff that is super solid and rugged. Going on 3 years now and it still works just fine. Macros are a bit wonky but do work with some finesse in the software setting them up. All around great mouse for any type of game, I use all the weights for a heavier feel and stability. Best mouse I have ever owned for less than $50, I got it on sale for $30.

    Yes, all the buttons still work :P

    I'm glad I found this mouse, as it has the 12-key side buttons within my budget. My thumb is just a shade too short to use the 1-3 buttons without moving my hand up, but that isn't the mouse's fault. Best for palm grip users. I simply can not get used to having my middle finger on the scroll, with my ring finger on the right button and pinky on the pinky rest, so I skipped the scroll and moved everything over one finger. It works fine for the RPGs I play, but would be slower for FPS games. Again, that is all me, and not the mouse. It does have a slightly textured, matte surface, which help the hand from sliding around and prevents fingerprints. There is driver software to set up custom hotkey gaming profiles, which I haven't used to full advantage yet. The RGB is one color at a time, so pick your favorite. The cord is quite long and covered in a nice, woven material. For my system, I have to have it on the lowest pixel setting, as it is designed for a higher resolution or multi-monitor system. I'm very happy with this little mouse.

    Bought on Newegg for $29.99.

    Pros:

    • Plenty of buttons to customize

    • RGB Lighting

    • Laser sensor up to 16400 dpi (excessive)

    • Cheap

    Cons:

    • Logo is too bright

    • Software is difficult to navigate

    • Would not buy for full-price

    Substitutes:

    • Logitech is always an option, but the cords do tend to mess up

    • I would go with anything with a removable cable or that is wireless

    • Personally, I am going to try the SteelSeries Rival 700 next

    $30 from Newegg- Was using a good mouse with only 2 buttons on the side with my laptop. wanted something with more buttons on the side that was under $40. If you have the money the 5-button Razer mouse is what I really wanted. The button are tougher to click than my old mouse but actually is very comfy to use.
