Ok the mouse i have is the logitech G9 which i've had for some time now and it stops working mid click (see image) so i was thinking of investing in a new mouse and as i don't play games as much as i used to i was thinking of going for something a little more civil but still with extra buttons so what's the best i could get for under £50?

I would get any Logitech mice. The only brand I use. I use the M305 mice (have 5 of them currently) they do have a left/right/center scroll click. Dunno if that will work.

Love it! Best mouse I've ever owned. Very comfortable to use. It comes with weights, lights up red, and the software is pretty lightweight and easy to use. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16826104318

If you don't want that, I'd recommend one of these. My friend has one and loves it. http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-mice

Edit: MADCAT R.A.T 's look pretty cool too.

Funny thing is, the click mechanism in Logitech's mice tends to break in that exact same way, regardless of what mouse I buy. It'll only get worse from there on out, and pretty soon your click will cease to work.

However, their mice are relatively cheap, and take a few years each to break. So I still recommend them :)

Get a G400. One of the few mice with a "perfect" 1:1 sensor. Razor Naga is another.

I had a G5 mouth a few years ago, and the right click lost the "click", wouldn't come back on. So I called up Logitech, they said they were sending a replacement. I got a G5 v2 from them. I spent no money.

So if i call Logitech's customer support there's a chance i might get a free replacement?

Or at least a discount. If not, the G400 is a good, inexpensive replacement.

I'm very fond of my aging Logitech RX1500 and the tracking seems to mess up from time to time on it. A few whacks to the desk and it's back in working order again :)

For gaming, I love my Corsair Vengeance mouse. For everyday use, my favorite is my Logitech T620 multitouch wireless mouse.
