I use a wireless logitech keyboard & mouse, about $40 at Best Buy, with my laptop, only uses one USB port.   I doubt a gaming mouse will make a difference.  You have to keep tweaking the setup till you find something that works for you.

I do not think you can get a "best" answer as its 100% opinionated, maybe go to a computer store, and see what fits your hand well. I use a Logitech G500 its heavy, which I like and fits me.

I use a ~$10 (in US currency) mouse...

 

...as long as it fits to your hand and you can control it well...



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

Just wanted to agree and say it's mainly about fit.  I bought a Logitech "gaming" mouse because it fit my grip the best.  Also, it seems to track a little truer than my cordless Microsoft mouse.  Beware the extra money for a "laser" mouse.  I researched and found several sources that said there's no noticeable performance improvement for the extra money.  Good luck in your search.

I have a Corsair Vengeance M95 that I bought for skinning, the ability to control it's sensitivity right on the mouse helps a lot, but many good gaming mice have that ability too. It seems to fit in my hand better then the Razer Naga demo I tried at teh store, but that is my personal feeling, both are very good. I do not use a mouse for WoWP other then clicking on the menus in the hangar and looking around with free camera.

I have to agree with this. I love my Naga Mouse but it is a tad on the small side for my hand.

So true but at least there are lots of good options with mice. As a trackball user the options keep getting less and less. Speaking of trackballs does anyone have a suggestion for a good replacement for the Logitech Cordless Trackman Optical? It must be a finger ball and not a thumb ball.

I have a Logitech Performance MX mouse, wireless and features USB charging.  I've had it for over a year and it's never failed me.

I finally gave up on finding a new trackball that I liked after my old Microsoft optical quit. Took time but finally adjusting to a mouse after using only trackballs since the late 90's

 I thought of trying a track ball does it give you complete control ?

I am afraid I will have to do the same, my Trackman is not going to last forever. It almost seems that the manufacturers are trying to push people into mice by dropping those with good ergonomics and at the same time continuing to sell the ones with horrid eronomics. The prices for new old stock and refurbished Trackball Explorer's and Trackman Optical's are beyond insane. Don't they realize that while the trackball market is small if yo make a really good one you will have a customer for life. /rantoff.

You get the same control but the feel is different and that different feel might not be for you. I would suggest giving one a test drive before committing to the change.

Is there a mouse on the market with sharp spikes on the right hand side, to remind me not to grip so hard with my pinkie?

 

Did any of you gaming-mouse users start with a regular non-gaming mouse and if so, did the switch:

1. significantly improve your performance? 

2. significantly improve your enjoyment of the game?

 

thanks.

 I'm curious if more stable and less jerky at times.
