Trying to find a new mouse that suits me

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Because a mouse is such a personal device, i'm a little scared of changing... but, my G5 is acting up. It tends to "squirm" where the cursor seems to vibrate (really hard to explain). I think it might be something to do with me ever so slightly lifting the mouse and confusing the laser.

So, I am looking for the following things in a new mouse:

* Ability to add a lot of weights!
* Accurate tracking
* A simple DPI change button in the middle
* Thumb buttons
* Something to suit my grip

The DPI button thing is because I change DPI on the fly in FPS games. So I run around on a high sensitivity setting and as soon as I see an enemy, I flick the DPI down button with my finger and then slide to it over to M1 button to shoot. So I need something that is very easy to change on the fly!

Stay away from anything made by razer, unless you can afford to replace it all the time. My mamba is developing an issue where approx 1 in 5 single clicks registers as a double click... It's infuriating and apparently not uncommon.

It was an awesome mouse for about 6 months though...

Mionix 5000

Yeah, its costly, yeah its wired, but G-d help the bad guys if they stay in your line of sight for more then 3 seconds.

The mouse is perfectly balanced, it has buttons but not too many buttons, it has a smooth soft texture but it won't make you sweat too much.

At 80 bucks it had better perform, and it sure does. It has weights but they aren't all that necessary, you have 3 sensitivity settings you can change in the mouse's driver but that can be switched between on the fly in game. And it has four or five profile options so you dont have to change it between games.

Plus, it has onboard memory so it will remember any changes made to it.

And it has the handy dandy feature of angle snapping. What's that? Try and scroll your mouse straight across horizontally, it won't go in a straight line but jitter a bit with a little bit of error. Angle snapping fixes that and you can adjust how much of it you want, its insanely nice.

The G500 would probably be a good fit. Same shell so you wouldn't have to get used to it. The sensor has positive acceleration that is greatly reduced by hard pads. (same sensor as G9x and Mionix Naos that were mentioned.)

If you want an elitist opinion then the Razer Deathadder is probably the best mouse considering your grip. Its DPI switch is on the bottom though, otherwise, its one of the best mice available.

I said Valor, since its use the best sensor in market, and all I'm pretty Sure it will be suit you well in term of ergonomic and with all the other needs (accurate tracking, dpi buttons etc.).
the DeathAdder I cant recommended since its profile-switcher button (you cant switch on the fly dpi, only profils) on the bottom of the mouse (the most awful place..).
