I have been looking for a mouse, but they seem to work and act the same. For example, what makes this mouse worth over $100? Is it the extra buttons and functions? Is it more precise, and if so, how?

I think it would depend on what you need it for. If you need it for gaming then it needs a very fast response time to prevent lag. It would also need to be very ergonomic since you would be using it for very long periods of time. Gaming mice tend to be wired instead of wireless so look for that so you don't have to worry about batteries when you're gaming! ;)And the extra buttons could be helpful for MMOs. If you are needing it for normal everyday purposes I would look for great battery life and great ergonomics. But in the end it come down to what you want to pay. If you want a gaming mouse I would recommend a Razer gaming mouse. Hope this helps!

If you want a good mouse, get a gaming mouse, even if you do not game.
I personally use a logitech G700 and it works great.
Many quality sensors not only sense direction, but also depth which allows them to compensate for uneven surfaces while a lower cost generic mouse that may come with the computer may mistake a downward slope (eg an imperfection on the surface that causes the depth to change), as a change in speed or direction.
That makes gaming mice great for photo editing and 3d modeling applications and a bunch of other professional applications. (the macro keys are also a plus)

You have to be kidding me. I don't understand why people care so much about mouse/keyboards. Just buy one that works, your paying too much for a really ugly looking mouse that is "gaming optimized" when really it's just like any other mouse. The only time I'd get a $100 mouse or keyboard is if they were giving them away.
