Need Mouse recommendations!!! - Page 2

Depends on your grip style. MX 518, Death adder and EC2 would be my choices.

If you can find the old G9 (not G9x) it should only cost $50-60

Say no to the RAT series the twin eye sensor sucks.
Look into the puretrak valour, same sensor as the death adders but less lift off and free puretrak talent if you pre order it, and 10% off with preval10 discount code. The valor is like 60$ too.
If you want a laser mouse i'd say the g500.

Some mice, while offering great performance, seem to have a higher failure rate then others. I'm not gonna name and brands or models cos I dont wanna get flamed.

Taking into account what you said I'm gonna go ahead and advice on the Logitech MX518 for the following reasons:
-inexpensive
-wired
-provides all the performance you need
-tracks well on cloth as well as hard surfaces
-many people will attest to its durability
-many people find its shape comfortable to use

The best test, regarding comfortability, is trying it out for yourself though. Just because many people like the shape of a mouse, doesnt mean you will.
Wow that was a great reply thank you! +rep

That's exactly what i was getting at and you said it way better than me!

Now my only question about the mx518 would be what is it's advantages over the intellimouse (seeing prices are similar) and is the performance in jumping from an mx518 to a deathadder worth it? What exact advantages are there and are they even noticeable, or is that only seen in the FPS games?

Please excuse my lack of knowledge!

downsides to the mx518 is that it has mouse prediction, the deathadder 3.5g does not. The intellimouse has no prediction but worse malfunction rate and perfect control.

My issue with the DA is it's stupidly high lift off distance, and for about the same price you can get a puretrak valor, which has the same sensor but fixed the lift off issues.

The mx518 has suporior tracking on the fly dpi setting.

However does that it suffers angle prediction. You can not turn it off and there is no fix for it.

Drift Control is a marketing term Razer uses for angle snapping. steelseries calls it ExactAim. other terms are prediction or mouse correction.

every sensor has a feature called angle snapping that helps keep the cursor on a path when making a straight line. the problem angle snapping has on gaming is it takes human error out of the equation and makes less precise movement.

here is a example.



Logitech MX-518 has angle snapping set high and the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 has it off.

the settings for angle snapping are stored in the firmware and some older mice like the Razer DeathAdder 3G and Razer Copperhead have a firmware update to turn it off.

newer mice have the ability to turn it off in the drivers instead of updating the firmware.

precision pointer is acceleration.

It is a perfectly fine mouse but can get fickle-ly with fps, but the same applies for g500's negative acceleration.

there's better sensors out there now... and heck it has a low perfect control rate and low malfunction rate, which isn't good.
