G9 ain't for everyone, not sure that I'd like it... but the G5 is amazingly comfortable.. I wrote a review on it... but you can't go wrong with the sidewinder, I just find the left and right click to be too long and I would be clicking them accidentally (well the right click) I found that a problem with a lot of the Razer mice too... I hate that company...

SteelSeries Ikari FTW (however carefull... my Laser's cable crapped out... so I am "borrowing" Jackies Optical. Not a big difference between the two.

i recommended the MX518, i had it for about 5 months now and it has never failed me. Its so much flash but its very functional. If your into flash then maybe one of those Razer mouses are for you.

I recently bought a Steelseries Ikari laser mouse. I've been using it for a few weeks now. Great mouse . I'd highly recommend it.

Another vote for the Ikari Laser. Insanely comfortable and driver-less FTW.

[OFFTOPIC]
By crapped out, do you mean the following:

At random intervals, it will 'disconnect' from the PC (Windows notifies this via USB disconnected sound)
A few seconds later it will 'reconnect' to the PC (Windows notifies this via USB connected sound)
Take a second for the laser/optical to come back online and then be fine?
[/OFFTOPIC]

Even with my Ikari problems, I'd definitely buy another...the mouse is insanely comfortable.
