I've been playing with PC since '91 and had my fun with various mouses, including about 5 (+-1) razers, many logitechs, Roccat kone+ and some special brand names i cannot recall.
The best mouse for me, For Gaming is Zowie EC1 which i still have. It not too fancy, but it kills with raw performance. No BS software, just pure performance.
I would not trade this for any Razer nor Logitech. If i needed to choose between those two, i'd go with Razer.
Beware of Roccat with all cost.
just my humble cents
EDIT: i should note, that i've taken apart many of above mentioned mouses. The bad thing with roccats are, they are not very good quality. The whole brands quality is below acceptable imho. Durability is low. Only good thing i found out from roccats that they had very good Orion swithes for main buttons. IMO, you should open your mouse to really understand if its hardware is good or not so good.edit on 21-9-2013 by menneni because: (no reason given)
Are you sure about the pad surface? i just came back online to ask you ive just read if you dont have a multi-coloured mouse pad it wont read the surface properly? i have a steelseries XXL black pad. It also said the drives for the scroll drive people crazy?

NP mate, one plus for Zowie is the most amazing anti lift-off effect. I don''t know whats that actually called but i mean that extra movement when you lift your mouse to air and back to change its location on the mousepad. It is really non-existent compared to all others i've ever used.
Zowie is the real deal for gaming, imo.
edit: whats more, its not too picky about pad surface either.
i still have nightmares about Roccat....edit on 21-9-2013 by menneni because: (no reason given)
As unpopular as this stance will be among my fellow gamers...
...it's a mouse.
As long as it has buttons and a wheel, you should be okay.
Now, with that said... If you're desperate for accuracy, avoid wireless... and get a mouse with a high DPI (5000+)...
and if you're desperate for response times, go for a gaming mouse with a high response time (around 1000mhz is usually great).
Other than that, it's all about the comfort, the fit in your hand, and the way it feels. Personally I'd rank that as being the most important factor in buying a mouse. Great response times and accuracy means nothing if the thing isn't comfortable for a gaming session.
