Gaming mice help


I was wondering if someone could help me with a dilemma that I have. At the moment I own a Redragon centrophorus that's around $15, I've been considering on switching to a more expensive mouse, the Razer Death Adder.

I read from this review: that it's a great mouse, but i'm not sure if it's that big of a difference with the one that I currently have. Can someone help me? :D

Choosing a new mouse is always a difficult one, especially if you've become used to and attached to your old one.

What is it more specifically that you are looking for in a mouse?
Its capabilities/buttons? Its dimensions? Its weight? Cord or Cordless?
One should never underestimate the feel of the fit in the hand (which is my current problem with getting a new one, not enough small ones with a "short back", not a sloping one).

Here are their respective sites, where you can compare all given information for yourself:

Until some of the above questions are answered, the most I can say is that I prefer either Logitech's mice, or (especially now after owning one) Corsair's offerings. I have the Corsair Scimitar Pro cause I'm a guy who likes having things like copy/paste, volume up/down, next/previous track, and stuff like that available to me on my mouse rather than the keyboard (As well as many keyboard shortcuts on my mouse as well). But the MMO mouse idea might not be for you.

Razer... Is ok I guess. There are better choices out there, especially these days. They'll do the job, but I tend to hear more negative things about them than positive due to quality and longevity concerns

Honestly, I don't think there will be THAT much difference. Perhaps a tiny bit more precision and less drag, but really, I don't know if it's worth the upgrade.
