Buying new gaming mouse; need advice.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Heya Guys!!! Here I am again trying to upgrade my Desktop slowly while on a budget. As of now I want to get a new gaming mouse. Only two are available for purchase at my location. (without shipment of course)

Here they are:

Razer Salmosa
http://store.razerzone.com/store/raz...ctID.169419400

or
Thermaltake Azureus
http://usa.ttesports.com/products/product.aspx?s=14

Which one should i get?
I'm leaning towards Salmosa but it seems to small for my liking. Thanks guys in advance.

If you can not test either you gonna have to trust your gut instinct there.

Did the same for a Steelseries Kinzu, and am so glad I did.

For that range of gaming mice, I would put the Deathadder at the top of the list. Pretty much the only mouse you will need for years and years to come. Unless your get too rough with it and spoil it

If not get the CM Storm mice, they are probably the best mice you can get for their price.

Btw, you should really state your hand grips before being recommended. As a DA is probably optimised for palm/claw grip, while other might be optimised for fingertip grips.

Second the CM storm. I'm using it right now, and I like it more than the G9x I tried from Best Buy.

BTW, if you are really stuck GO to a best buy and overpay for a mouse. Use it for a couple of days, and then return it. If you like it, buy it cheaper somewhere else. If you don't, no harm no foul.

If the choices are between those three mice, I would say the Razer. Personally, I find the Razer mice very light. I have a Logitech G9X. Thinking back, most if not all my gaming mice have been Logitech. If you watch slickdeals.net, Logitech usually have a "dented" box sale, even though they never show up dented .

I have a Logitech G5 corded laser mouse and it has all the features I need (adjustable DPI, weights and lots of buttons including forward and back for browsing). I don't like wireless mice or keyboards so I'm very happy with it, especially since it costs only £35.
