I’ve broken more mice in my time than I’d like to admit. It got so bad that I eventually started to just buy cheap mice, knowing I’d eventually break them. With a cheap mouse, however, you don’t get the features of a nice quality peripheral. My most recent replacement for a set I spilled something on (I wasn’t joking, it’s a regular occurrence) was the Microsoft Wireless Comfort 5000 keyboard/mouse combo. The mouse was great for my hands (I’ve got bear claws, as my friends say), and the keyboard is a nice blend of ergo and media. Then I got my hands on Tribes: Ascend. Now, I never meant for my main computer to be a gaming machine, so I did not consider that when buying. As my gaming continued, I wanted more and more for a more precise mouse, as I kept messing up when trying to make distance or moving shots.
