Not sure if there is much to be done as far as the actual buttons clicking but most scrollwheels can be modded.  I did it with my old G5, where basically you simply take out a small spring and the wheel spins smooth.  No clicks and you can scroll through pages like 20 times faster.  The downside being (if you play fps's or other games) is that the wheel has nothing hold its position so it will occasionally move around on its own.

I use Logitech Performance Mouse MX because it is silent.

I recently bought a Logitech G9X, but I felt it was awkward to use, so I sold it. Now I'm back to using my old MX518, which is a much nicer mouse IMO.

Very cool.  I can live with a noisier scrollwheel, but the buttons get more use and can be more disturbing to the user and neighbors.

Do the buttons produce any clicking sound?  I have the Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 5500 Revolution which includes the MX Revolution mouse and it's definitely not silent.  Have another Logitech mouse which has the shape of the M500, and it's relatively quiet though the battery life is poor.

 

Haven't had much luck with Logitech as their buttons are really levers and they produce a high pitch clicky sound.  Design-wise and ergonomics are great, but haven't found a model with quiet buttons.  As for their keyboards, I went through four Logitechs before I found the K800 to be the quietest.  Not that the preceding keyboards were not quiet, but they have a short shelf life before they become increasingly louder, especially the spacebars.

Buttons are not completely silent, I have not seen a mouse with buttons not making any sound, they are relatively silent and am happy with that.

From this review, the Performance Mouse MX has a similar design / shape as the MX Revolution.  Looking for a smaller notebook mouse with a lower profile.

That's one hell of a guide.

Just got a G400. I tried the Logitech Gaming software but unfortunately it makes the cursor jump around quite a bit which is very aggravating. I ended up not using the software but now I don't get the custom set DPI and mouse buttons.frown.gif

Unless it's a bug with the new version of the software, you have have gotten a wonky one.  I had a G400 for a bit, not a single problem.

Nothing's wrong with the mouse as it tracks fine without the software, and I read a review where the reviewer had the same problem with the cursor jittering with the software. Unfortunately it's on overclock.net which is being overhauled right now so I can't link it.

 

A lot of other reviews I read didn't even use the software. I guess it's better not to as I can still switch DPI and I'd rather be able to use it as a plug and play mouse on any computer.

It sounds like a driver or firmware issue.  I remember reading about that cursor jumping issue with some Razer wireless mice and that was definitely a driver issue.    If you can still use the dpi buttons though, you don't really need the software. 

 

There are also alternatives like this:

...although I have no experience with them.

Yeah, the CM Storm Spawn had a similar firmware issue.

Low sensitivity? What games do you play?

Wireless mice > wired mice for gaming. The wire gets in the way.

 

There are lots of mice with great wireless performance that offer excellent tracking for games.  We have the Roccat Pyra, Logitech G7, Cyborg Rat 9. Have not tried the Razer Mamba. I don't like Logitech or Razer though, Rat9 is the best mouse in my book.
