Default Gaming mouse

Hello

My G9 is dead , and i want to replace it. I have a CM Sentinel to but i don't like it. Canada Computers have the Razer Imperator for 69.99$.
It is a good choice or what other options do i have?

Alienware TactX Mouse Product Details

$50 right now. I wouldn't touch any Razer laser mice since they all use the problematic Twin-Eye sensor. If you liked your G9 then you'll probably love the TactX.

I've been demoing Logitech's two newest mice for the last 6 months and I'm really impressed.

There is a new G9 out (or it will be soon?) and the G700 is outright amazing.

Actually, another option would be to just RMA your G9 if you still can. If it's covered, Logitech will just give you a G9x as a replacement and you won't have to pay anything.

New G9? What's different about it? Or are you under NDA?

Naw, no NDA.

G9x Laser Mouse

G9x.

They fixed the issue with the "comfort" grip peeling after use. You can get it with a nice silver grip etc.

Now the one I have has an extra two buttons, it doesn't show that it does in that link but as far I knew they were trying to add a couple more to the G9. but maybe they took that out in the release version? I'd have to look into that.

The grips are a lot nicer now, I had major complaints before with one of them and I had to help people get replacements for it.

The pads are upgraded too, it slides smoother than the other G9's I have (And I have like 20 so I know that it's not just that my current ones are worn.)

I had very few complaints this time around. I'm currently using it over the G700, probably just because it's what I'm used to.

The G9x has actually been out for around a year and a half. The release version is physically identical to the G9 except it has a higher-resolution sensor.

Stay away from the imperator, it SUCKS.

G700 is my choice. I'm using one right now and it's phenomenal

If the wireless is too expensive for you, a G500 is another good choice
