    Razer Naga/Hex, or Logitech G600 (my personal fav), there is also the Corsair M90. Those are just off the top of my head, pretty much the majority of peripheral manufacturer's make at least a few multi-button mice. I personally recommend the G600, but I'm partial to Logitech as their customer service is amazing and warranty turn around is top notch.

    Razer has a quality issue. They're great when they're new but they have a shorter lifespan than their competitors - I recommend Logitech also.

    I enjoy my Corsair M60 quite a bit and have heard decent things about the M90.

    if i could have 2 mouses(? mice? lol) i would have a razer naga and a corsair m90. both fit the opposite end of the gaming spectrum very nicely..if i had to pick one though i would definetly choose the naga, as i mostly play wow and the quality of life with the side keypad is amazing.

    Personally I don't get on with the "strap a keypad to the side" idea for the G600/Naga. Have a look at the M90 - similar number of buttons but spaced around the mouse a little more. Same with the G700, 4 under the thumb, 3 under the usual left mouse finger. I currently have the second and find using the 3 extra "left mouse" button for cooldowns and the 4 under the thumb for "reflex" abilities (cc & anti cc in pvp etc) rather nice.

    I have personally had both the naga and the G600 and they are both great mice.
    But the G600 have much better build quality and the buttons on the sides are really nice as well.

    Once you get use to them they are much easier to find and press the G-Shift key takes some time to get use to.
    But after you have you can easily rebind it to work as a normal shift key.
    Giving you a total of 22 keys you can use in total with a shift binds.

    Also the Logitech G600 software for key config is a lot better then the Razer synaps.
    You don't have to create a account and all that guff Just install it and run it.

    I have the G700. Solid build quality, great ergonomics and pretty cheap too. All razer mice I have tried so far have been too light and plastic-y for me to like them. Some are oddly shaped and not ergonomical either.

    I have had my Razer Naga for over a year without any issues with it at all. It was a little weird at first but now every button gets used. I couldn't play without it now!

    Been using a Razer mouse for 2 years now. I wouldn't complain about built quality, but just like any mouse, make sure you clean it regularly; don't let grime build up under your buttons; had an issue with gunk getting under the button membranes and preventing me from clicking- a solid smack against the floor fixed it.

    As someone who loves Razer and owned a Naga for 14 months, Logitech G600 if you like lots of buttons. Logitech is just better built.

    I'd buy another g5 if you like it well enough. I know i probably will. I dont like the cheap plastic feel of razer mouses, or have any in particular i like the design for. The g5 is a classic

    Razer Deathadder is pretty nice. I've had mine for about a year and haven't had any issues with it so far. My lycosa keyboard is a different matter all together lol.

    Just don't get a Cyborg RAT, OMG I used my college buddies a few times and it was damn uncomfortable with all the jagged edges (actually cut my hand a bit) and goofy shaping.

    Get the G9x. I've used mine for years, and before that the G9. They're awesome.

    Buy a new G5,.
    there's no question about it,. razer mice suck.
    If you've used your G5 for many a year now, it's simply time to order a new one.
