Which mouse should I choose

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Logitech MX518 which I've had for awhile now and I'm looking into buying a new mouse but I cant decide between the Razer DeathAdder and Imperator. Which one will be best for fingertip grip?

The Imperator has the same shape as your old MX518 so shape wise it should be the easiest transition. Sensor wise I think the Imperator is a downgrade compared to the MX518 and especially the deathadder. But that's just my opinion.

Get a G400 if you feel like spending, it has the same shell as your mx518 but with an upgraded polling rate and dpi. If I were you though, I'd keep the mx518 as it is still one of the best gaming mice today even with its age.

Absolutely stay away from the imperator. Check reviews about it's sensor problem. I would say the g400, but since you've had the mx518 for awhile the deathadder would probably be the second best choice if you wanted to try it out.

G400 has software issues though. Deadthadder has the best tracking out of them all.

I used an Imperator for about 5 minutes and it seemed ok, but I can't really give a recommendation off that. However, I do own a DeathAdder, and I like it a lot. It has great tracking and ergonomics. I palm my DeathAdder, but I believe many people that use a claw grip also find the DeathAdder to be adequate. Maybe you can try it out at a store and see if you like it.
