    I'm buying a new iMac in 2 weeks. I'll be running XP with Bootcamp for most of my non-Mac gaming (unfortunately).

    I'm also getting a Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard

    Can't decide bewtween 3 mice?

    1) Logitech VX Revolution

    2) Logitech G9

    3) Microsoft Sidewinder

    I'd like some advice / opinions from anyone owning or used any of these mice. Or anyone with better ideas.

    My 1st two games I'll be buying is Unreal Tournament 3 and Serious Sam 2.

    That Microsoft mouse is certainly... interesting. :)

    I will say that I've owned 3 different wireless Microsoft mice over the last year (the smaller ones in the $40 range) and only one of them has survived the whole year. These are very different mice than the one you are looking at though.

    I did just buy the Logitech VX Revolution you mentioned about a week ago, and I absolutely love it. It says it is OS X compatible on the box, although I'm still using SteerMouse instead of the Logitech software to adjust all my settings and button mappings.

    In windows I've been playing a lot of Orange Box lately and found this mouse to be really superior to the others I've owned there...

    So... I haven't tried the other ones you mentioned, but I certainly give a thumbs up to the VX Revolution.

    I did not bough my mice however i just got i for free.So i might have bought
    the cordless just because it's cordless and i dont think the difference it's that big.By the way the logitech suits the hand very good i dont really know about the microsoft's.

    Thanx for everyones input. I think i'm buying the VX Revolution. You know after reading reviews, suggestions & then all of a sudden you say: 'That's the one I want'. And don't look back.

    That's the way to know that you've made the right choice.

    Cheers Guys
