I agree Digikid Logitech is solid never had a problem with anything. Plus a lot of their products are also very cool! Really can't go wrong with them.

lowfat as with anything ymmv and you won't be able to find a brand that no one has had a bad experience with. The Ikari laser mouse you recomended has quite a few threads online about it dying. Also I'm sure you can get "better" stuff than Logitech but for easily available and decent prices Logitech I think is one of the best choices. But really buy what you like and make sure they have good customer service!

As for mouses, I really like... .
awww nooo, that just ain't[sic] right.
I know languages evolve, but mouses?
Oh well, I guess what is considered acceptable is like a roll of the dices.

Just want to suggest that you consider purchasing from a "satisfaction guaranteed" type store like BB or FS etc. That way you can try it out for at bit. It took me quite a few mice to finally find the G3 which works for me (being left handed restricts the # of models I can chose from). 2c
(btw, sorry about all that plural folly, just a bit'o'fun.. hehe)

No worries. Hmmm well to be honest, all of this started with a mouse pad. I don't suppose that BB or FT carries steelseries, no?
