Default Best mouse

I am looking for a new mouse, I just bought a Saitek Eclipse II yesterday and I'm looking for a good mouse to accomidate that. I would like it to be sturdy, comfortable, and under $30. I have a Logitech wireless set that is great but they suck up batteries like nobodies buisness. I would prefer a wired mouse (Wireless is ok as long as there is a dock where I can recharge it, and it won't lag). I saw a cool Saitek mouse for like $20 and it was 1600dpi but the reviews said that it wasn't too sturdy and it would sometimes get messed up after about 6 months.

It's about personal preference. Different people like different models. But if I'd have to get a mouse which is less than $30 I'd get the logitech mx310.

hi,

as mammikoura said its about personal preforance for me its the cheapest mouse thats nice looking aslong as its optical and has a scroll wheel im not fussed.

but just for the sake of it im gonna suggest some mice

my personal choice from newegg would be

simple because of looks and price http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826140020

or if you wanted a wireless 1 then

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826129024

or

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826156011

If you're willing to spend a bit more, Razer makes excellent gaming mice:

For around $30 your best bets would be:

Logitech MX310

Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0

Microsoft B7G-00004 Laser Mouse 6000.

I have a mx310, and I love it. you can use the side buttons in games (not the button under the middle wheel), and the side buttons function as back/forward buttons, very convenient.
