Both my headset and mouse are dying. My mouse has been having a lot of pointer issues this past week. It will get stuck in random spots on my screen for a couple seconds at a time. Sometimes it'll work afterwards, others it will move then get stuck again. People have suggested a lot of different fixes for it, none of which have worked.

What do people raid with? What works well? What is a complete waste of money?

I've been using the Razer Naga for about a year now, and it's having issues. I really like the side buttons as well as the shape of the mouse, but I don't feel like dropping $80 on a mouse every year.

I use a Logitech G9 mouse for about 2 years now and it's pretty good and very well built. I used a Razer Deathadder before and I can honestly say it's the most comfortable mouse I've ever used but the build quality sucks ass and breaks on me within the year. As for headsets, I currently have the Logitech G35 and so far it's awesome. The most recent "gaming" branded products from Logitech have been really good in terms of quality and durability.

G35 Logitech Headset:

Fucking amazing headset, had it for 6 months now and loving it still. When it comes to gaming, you can't find a better headset period. Even for audiophiles, it's great. 7.1 surround if you have a good sound card too :P.


G500 Logitech Mouse:

Great mouse, I've had the G5 downgraded version for over two years now and it's taken a ton of punishment and it's still in great condition. Love the feel of it, but since the G5 was discontinued in favor of the G500, I heard the button placement for the G500 is a bit more annoying because of the third side button, but I'm sure it's better once you get used to it. Definitely quality mouse though.

I also roll with a G35 headset , best headset I've ever had. It's a bit uncomfortable but not enough to make me want to try another one especially since the sound quality is incredible.

I have a razer lachesis mouse, it's lasted me for 3 years now and even though there are bigger and better ones out there it's comfortable and has just enough buttons.

Have to agree with the G35 suggestions, I use one atm and the only thing that would make me change is having found a model of the G35 that's wireless xD
The only drawback to the headset is that my "tangle-less" cord tangles, and like Mojada said mines SLIGHTLY uncomfortable to wear - but that's because I have big ears, and it can put pressure right at the top of my right ear... after 4 hours you can feel it. Not enough that I would consider buying a new headset, but enough that it's worth mentioning.


I use (and have used for 4 years, now) a razer deathadder mouse. Really comfortable to use, mines starting to wear a bit but I'm loathe to replace it..

My favorite headset are the Koss SB/49, lifetime warranty, and if they break, you just send them in with a check for return shipping and they send you a new set for free. Very comfortable, and affordable at like 40 bucks a pair.

Personally, I really love the Naga, but I used the Microsoft Sidewinder (X8?) model for about a year or so and it still works perfectly fine, just switched to the Naga like two months ago. Used the Logitech MX 518 mouse for like 3 years before it quit on me, and that was because I was always bending the cording in a way that was really bad for it.

I used to use a Razer DeathAdder and absolutely loved it. But one day my brain exploded when I saw the Razer Naga, so I went and bought one immediately.

I highly recommend both, but if you don't need 15+ buttons on your mouse, go with the DeathAdder. ;)

I second the Logitech G9 laser mouse. I've had mine close to 2 years now and it's been great!
