Being the CAG that I am, I go cheap on absolutely everything, hardware and accessories included. A little over a year ago I was on a mission to get my first "gaming" mouse after years of using cheap mice I found on sale. Initially, it seemed I'd have to pull out the old coin purse and reach for the dollar coins in the back, but eventually I found there was a decent selection of budget gaming mice. The Xornet was the third one I ordered and has easily become my favorite.
The Xornet is a nice balance between gaming and casual mouse. For the gamer in you, it has a button allowing you to switch between 500, 1000, and 2000 DPI on the fly. It has 7 buttons, but three of those include the DPI switch buttons and the scroll wheel. I tend to use 4 buttons - right and left click and the two side buttons (by the thumb). The mouse is made for claw style grip and it feels perfect in my hands. It is lightweight (with no adjustable weights) and I've never had any comfort issues with it.
Overall, I don't have any complaints about this mouse. After over a year of constant use and daily drops and pulls on the cord, this thing is still going strong with no signs of slowing down. It is still completely responsive in every way and the buttons still click as quickly as they did the first day. I have to admit, not being a hardcore gamer I can't really tell you how this compares to the fancy $50 and up mice, but I personally would be hard-pressed to find a better mouse for myself. I've recommended it to several CAGs and they all have loved it just as much.
I paid between $10 and $15 for this mouse after rebate, but I would easily recommend it for the $23.xx Amazon is asking at the moment.
