    Im trying to choose between the Logitech G5 and the Razer Copperhead. Both have pretty similar specs and similar price but im not sure which to get.

    The copperhead has 7 programmable buttons - by programmable does that mean you can set a button on the mouse to act as if the 9 key (or any other key) was pressed? Because that would be great, would save me having to take my hand off the mouse to get my parachute out in BF2

    The Logitech has weights in it that you can change but im not sure if that would be useful or whether its just something to make it sound good ...

    Anyone own either of them or used them who can give me some adivce?

    I read a review of gaming mice in PcPro magazine not that long ago and I think the Logitech G5 came out on top, here's the review, looks quite good.

    I went for the Logitech GX518 because it was only £30.

    It does, the SetPoint software is very good (and does a load more than customise buttons), but I don't use it. I don't find I need any more out of my mouse than it offers through plug and play.

    Where abouts are the extra buttons? I can only see two below the wheel (for +/- sensitivity?) and then one where your thumb goes - is that it?

    The Copperhead isnt compatible with OSX, bit of a pain but i can always keep my current optical for that. Does anyone know where the buttons are on the copperhead? I cant see them in the pics lol.

    I figured the Razer didn't offer enough more to justify the extra price. My Logitech does a good job, though I've not yet found much use for adjustable sensitivity - tend to be too busy trying to shoot to worry about turning the sensitivity down!

    Ive got it now. It look damn sexy with the blue lighting

    It has two buttons on either side of the mouse. The two on the right are for changing sensitivity and the two on the left just seem to be like forward and back buttons with firefox. I want to change them but dont know how yet :/
