The Logitech G500s gets five-stars without even breaking a sweat. It's good for all tasks and has a powerful gaming sensor. That said, it might be better for professionals (graphic designers and the like) than gamers, as the overly subtle scroll wheel notches make some actions difficult, as do the three tightly spaced thumb buttons.
Best of the rest
