If you have a mouse that cost less than $100, you can't be a pro gamer. Period.

you can't be a pro gamer unless you get paid for it, that's the definition of pro, professional, it means getting paid for something.

Mine was $10 ish, only works within a 2 foot range of the dongle, but I get head shots all day. Period.

Or like showing up at a formula one race with a NASCAR car (is that repetitive?)

I was going to be offended by this.
But then I realized I'm not a pro gamer.

If you have a mouse that cost more than $100, you were ripped off.
And probably use an Alienware PC.

How is it a ripoff if a mouse that I buy for $120 lasts for 5 years?
That's like 0.6 cents a day and considering that most people here use PC for at least 3 hours a day seems like a good deal to me.

Because you're paying nearly twice its value?

How would you know what's the real value? I didn't even mention a specific mice, you're just talking nonsense.
How would you know how much value can someone get out of a mouse?

Let's assume you're right. Where did you get that value?

EDIT: @JKatarn
Lol? Are you people serious? Why would you make an assumption that I base my purchases on price?
I'm not your average joe that buys expensive crap just because it's expensive.

And please no "from my experience" crap. We're talking facts there. At least I am.
Faulty hardware happened to individual, so what? If the same thing happened to a lot of people that means you didn't do your research and bought a hardware prone to malfunction.
If you bought a reliable hardware and it broke on you, but it doesn't broke on 99% of other people, tought luck, crap happens. One broken headset doesn't mean they're generally bad.

You said and I quote "How is it a ripoff if a mouse that I buy for $120 lasts for 5 years" heavily implying that you consider more expensive items to be of better build quality, I gave you my FACTUAL, real-life experiences that would contradict this. Yes, typically you get what you pay for, but there are a few cases of companies using cheap components and charging a higher price because of branding etc. My specific case was corroborated by more than a few people on Amazon/the manufacturer's forum complaining of similar problems within a relatively short time of purchase.

It would be like showing up to a NASCAR race driving a Prius. Go big or go home, that's my motto.

That dont mean s**t. this Topic means nothing, a mouse is a mouse, doesn't matter on price. Why don't you go home and continue to compare your mouse price to your tiny d**k.

Why the so much anger? While I don't agree with OP, he's obviously a troll and you're giving him just what he wants. Also, while I don't think excessively (excessive is relative of course) expensive mice are that much better, I've used a lot of mice in my day and I can say there is a difference between a $6-20 mouse and something more expensive.

I have a RAT7, mostly for the pinky rest. Everything else about it is just icing on the cake.
