After years and years of Logitech making awesome mice with terrible reliability (in my experience), I finally got something else. I LOVE the MX Revolution, but the RF on it just hates every Mac I use it on, and I went through 3 of them (at $100+ each).
I had a Performance MX until today (also $100~) and the right click died on me. So I decided to bite the bullet and try the Razer Naga.

It's marketing is kind of cheeseball, with all the MMO leet-speak around it, but at the end of the day it's a great looking/feeling mouse with basically a full programmable number pad on the side. It has a mode switch for the side buttons, so you can use it as a standard NumPad, or 12 macros.
Only had it a few hours, and other than it being a little on the light side (I like heavy mice), it's pretty damn nice. Since I use a Dinovo Edge for a keyboard (which doesn't have a number pad), it's nice to have the option for apps/games that have actions bound to the pad that I can't change.
For the 12 macros, it's extremely kickass, though honestly only the first 3 rows are easily/quickly thumb-reachable without having to think about it. I have them set for things like Spotlight, new Finder window, Terminal, and shit like that.
As an added bonus (and a big part of the allure, since I do 99% of my gaming on the XBos) I should be able to do some super cool Reaper stuff with it - 12 full macros one button away? Yes please.
So far so good, just wish it wasn't so light. Razer's packaging is really sharp, and even the cord on it is braided fiber instead of the standard plastic/rubber kind on most wired mice.
Plus, LOOK AT THE LIGHTS. The big logo actually pulses while it's sitting there too. Blinky lights = better recordings!
Man that looks nice. My MX Revolution has been giving me shit lately too and I need to replace it soonish. Is that a wire I see there? I've been leaning towards going wired again.
