    Guess I'll either find out what all of the hype is about (I hope) - or I'll find out why some folks have said to stay clear of Razer products.

    Yes, mainly FPS gaming... Thanks for your MS Explorer suggestion, game4ever, but, despite what "real" gamers say about wired vs wireless, I don't like wired mice.

    I still like Logitech mice, but I just ordered the Razer Mamba to try out a "real, made-for-games" mouse. I'm not the best gamer in the world....O.K., I'm not really very good at all.....but I still have fun playing.

    I use both Logitech and MS mice. In fact, I have over a dozen "good" mice in a closet, lol. But I use the Explorer 3.0 for FPS games and Logitech for my RPG's and MMORG's (when I had the time to play this type).

    For < $30 a MS IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 can't be beat.

    I've had Razer mice too, they are way too light and finicky for me though. You might like them, many do.

    Re: Upgrade for Logitech MX Revolution?

    I rather like the Razer Mamba. I haven't done much gaming with it as yet, so can't comment on the gaming profiles, etc., but the mouse feels comfortable in my hand, seems very responsive. (Of course, I have only used wireless "mice" for the last few years so perhaps if it does lack in responsiveness, I wouldn't notice. )

    I haven't put it through any abuse as yet but it seems well built to me; it may be a bit lighter than the other "mice" I have used, as game4ever commented, but I guess that doesn't bother me - again, I have never used a "made for gaming" mouse before so haven't ever tried one that has the different weight choices, so I may not know what I am missing.

    On the other hand, I can't say it is "the best mouse I have ever used" - I haven't been blown away by it in comparison with the other "non-gaming" mice I have used, though the blue LEDs sure are pretty - so I don't know if the high price premium is really justified.
