Razer make great products, no doubt. But if there is one major flaw in their (overpriced) most expensive mouse the Mamba. Many owners of this mouse (including me) are plagued with squeaky scroll wheels, which involves taking apart the mouse to fix. It's not a major problem, but it can get irritating.

For a $200+ mouse you would expect it to ooze out quality at every inch, but this is not the case as Razer has overlooked the need of some sort of lubricant on the Mamba's scroll wheel.

Never really heard a bad thing about their other lower-end products though. Heard the Copperheads etc are great.

The M950 is a pretty epic mouse, it can be had from PB for $105 + GST.

I would still go cable for gaming though.

I would always use a wired mouse for gaming. Actually I would use them for anything. The wireless ones are weird...

I don't use anything special, an A4 Tech WOP-35PU. Works fine for me.

I don't have an issue with the batteries (although it's a bonus not having them in my mouse)

In my experience with wireless mice and gaming, I have always had issues with a strange kind of lag, which is terrible for FPS games.

Even just on desktop work it was weird, a wired mouse just feels so much more accurate.
