    Is there any mouse out there which actually worth to buy?! Talking about really durable switches and not all these buzz "moba / fps wew lads lights".

    I mean pretty sure people who plays RTS / Mobas whatever you wanna call it, pretty sure gives zero ****s about lights and "15 buttons" and you really want an accurate sensor and durable buttons since you click a lot, maybe is just me but seems like they completely give a **** about improving the lifetime of the buttons.

    Been using Deathadder 2013 for a while. Can't complain about quality. I think its the most comfortable and accurate mouse I've been using for a while. And its big and heavy enough to fit my hand.

    Using for Dota2, CS:GO, KF2, BF4 and other games.

    Been using Logitech Revo and Logitech G700 since release date . One of the best . I usually prefer Logitech over Razor but that it's just taste.

    well the rated click is not bs, the switch did get proper test in their test "lab"
    but this will be different from daily use, where its different from a user usage to another , condition and also the mouse casing design will also affect the switch

    most switch will last long enough, aside one most common issue : Double-Click issue
    i never tear-down a switch, but like many fix guide said, simply clean the switch with "contact-cleaner" will give temporary fix
    so it seems the switch gets dust clogging as months of use?

    but from mouse i own, i find
    logitech last longer before double-click than steelseries / razer
    so my pick logitech > steelseries >>> razer
    havent interested enough to pick other brands/maker

    but razer is the worst (no offense), it will double-click just like 6months of daily use (lachesis, imperator, stop using razer after that)
    only razer in early days (like cooperhead 2007/8?) that last really good

    I've been using the Logitech MX518 (and then G400, pretty much the same mouse but with higher resolution) for ages and loved them, then I put my hand on a Steelseries Rival 700. Big mistake, I'm buying one next month.

    I have a Rival myself (original series). I think it's the equivalent of the 300 in the new range? Very nice mouse!

    Nice looking mouse, but I prefer Logitech 700 button design for thumb buttons, because it allows for thumb rest and caving for thumb makes sure that finger is locked firmly when needed and there is no chance to press button by accident. What Logitech can do is to:
    a) Replace two front forward buttons with scroll (like on Logitech MX Master)
    b) Add a button on the right side (more like a lever design so it won't take extra horizontal space and could be activated by pressing by pushing it from left to the right) or replace 3 buttons on the left with small D-PAD (4 buttons)
    c) Make battery easier to replace.

    It will bump button count to 14 and axis count to 4 - same as on basic console controllers. G700 is already King of the Gaming Mice. Changes could make it even more perfect.
