My main gaming mouse is a very nice Mionix Naos 3200 which has served me very well in 2011.
However I needed something for my travels around the UK but didn’t want to spend too much just for it to get bashed around in my bag. I think I have found the perfect solution …. a switchable 800/1600 dpi Gigabyte M6800 for £10. Whilst my Naos has three dpi settings to 3200, I only use 1600 and 800 (for a spot of sniping). My only concern is the size … my hands are smallish which is why I can’t get on with the Microsoft SideWinder mouse (which is otherwise excellent).
What I keep putting off is getting one of these – the awesome (albeit with mixed reviews) Cyborg Rat 7.
