Good desktop mouse

Summary: I bought this because my new DVI/USB KVM couldn't support my old optical intellimouse 3 that needed too much DC current from USB. I Haven't used it yet for gaming, as I'm using it on a Linux workstation through a KVM, but later will have a windows desktop also on the KVM to try.
Summary: I have found myself cleaning dirt off of this mouse very often, but I really don't mind the chore. I swear, as soon as I got this mouse, I suddenly got loads better at every first person shooter game.
Pros: Absolutely love this mouse. After several months of ownership, everything works. The other reviews mentioned this mouse being slightly too big for the average hand, but it works perfectly for me; plus I got over the whole "accidentally clicking the side buttons" thing in under a week. Very good l...
Cons: Very occasionally, the mouse stops responding for a second. However, my old mouse did this too, so I believe it is a problem related to my computer, but I can't help but mention it. It only happened to me once or twice though, and hasn't happened to me since forever. If it happens to you, be pati...
Summary: It would be nice if the wire can be longer. The wire is pretty thin, but a little stiff
Pros: Good quality. not so lucky with my Microsoft keyboard though...I bought 3 keyboards after getting this mouse. The left and right button are still bouncing back very well after all these years. Good color and finish. The color and shining surface never change a bit. I like the design that even lef...
Cons: Nothing really. Being using this mouse 3+ years already. I use it everyday....haven't failing me yet.
Summary: If they would move the button on the right, it would be perfect.
Pros: Wonderful mouse. I have always loved Microsoft mice. This one is close to my beloved Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 optical mouse, but it is laser. I love that it doesn't have a red or blue light coming out of it. I think a glowing mouse is annoying.
Cons: The "forward" button is on the right side of the mouse. I think the forward and back should be next to eachother on the left side of the mouse. Every mouse I have used wtih those buttons has that configuration. I have a very hard time getting used to this.
Summary: I think it's a good price for a laser mouse with additional buttons.
Pros: Great laser tracking. Upgraded from an Microsoft Optical that would sometimes track strange on the edge of the mousepad. This one is smooth. The DPI is really good, I had to turn down the mouse sensitivity in the control panel.
Cons: It's really light. It doesn't have the feel of a Logitech G5. I like the heavier mice. I used to have a Logitech G5, but the scroll wheel broke. So I'm giving Microsoft a try.
Summary: Precision booster is ok, but I'm kind of on the fence about it, since you only have a choice between your regular tracking and one other setting for more accurate tracking at any time, and it takes a while to figure out the more accurate setting that works for you.
Pros: Great tracking on virtually any surface, nice scroll wheel, the thin cable does do a pretty good job of imitating the feel of a wireless mouse without the latency problems, the magnify function is nice for programs like Photoshop or GIMP, Newegg price is much lower than retail.
Cons: In an effort to make the mouse ambidextrous, the side buttons have been compromised. The thumb button can be hard to reach, while the ring/pinky button is fairly easy to get to. It seems to repeat recorded keystrokes as fast as possible, which keeps it from being effective at being much more than...
