    Default gaming mouse?

    I've been thinking of getting a new gaming mouse for quite some time now, but the opportunity never arose. My MX518 has been working very well for a good number of years, and I just never had any reason to replace it. Newer shinier mice came out every year, and I kept track of the ones I wanted to try, and now it looks as though I have the perfect excuse:

    I recently got a new laptop that did not have the Trackpoint I had grown so used to and the touchpad is driving me up a wall. So now I'm considering of using the faithful 518 with the lappy wherever it goes, and getting one of them newer fancier mice I've been dreaming of.

    Here are the things I've been looking at:

    Logitech's G500 - seems like the logical continuation
    CM Storm Sentinel Advance
    Mionix Naos 5000


    If you've got any other mice in mind tell me, but keep in mind that I'm not at all interested in Razer mice.

    Mionix hasn't been around long, but in a very short time they have made some excellent mice and the 5000 is one of their best yet.

    This is where all your gaming mouse fantasies come true doood. Watch the video! Ive been very happy with the RAT7 and all its attention to detail. I especially like the two thumbwheels and the precision aim button. The software works great too.

    Okay so I've put together the votes cast across a few sites and here are the final standings:

    g500 8
    cm 2
    mionix 5
    other 8

    As there was no unity in the other (highest vote was 2 for the roccat kone[+]) it looks as though the G500 will be my next mousing implement. Thank you all for the suggestions.

    I have a G500 that I have been using for a couple of yrs on the system in my bedroom and it's always been a decent mouse, so you made a good choice.
