post #131 of 6260
1. What's your grip style?
Not totally Palm.. more like Palm-Claw hybrid. I Mostly use my wrist for movements compared to forearm. Right Handed.

2. What's your sensitivity?
Low-sens. 1800DPI@1000HZ. CoD4 Sens is 0.5 @1920x1080.

3. What's your maximum budget?
No restrction there.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
2 side buttons will do. But more will not hurt. biggrin.gif

5. What games do you play?
Mostly CoD4 Promod, BF3 and TF2. Also, RPG games and a bit of SC2.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Yes. Tried to play using prediction on (it is turned off usually) with my G500 and my aim didn't feel right.

7. Other relevant information:
Shape should be like/as close to MX518/G500.

1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip, with very large hands
2. What's your sensitivity?
I can get used to a new one if I need to, but I use 1500 CPI(DPI) right now
3. What's your maximum budget?
Doesn't matter
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Doesn't matter
5. What games do you play?
RTS, FPS
6. Do you mind about prediction?
I do not want any prediction, just raw mouse input.
7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.
some examples:
LOD?

As low as possible honestly, Xai has it just right
Ambidextrous shape?
Yes, with fingertip grip that is all that is really comfy
Weight?
As light as possible, Xai weighs 98g and feels pretty good. Lighter is always welcome though! smile.gif
Wireless?
Absolutely not, for a gaming mouse one of the worst things you can do IMO.
Acceleration?
No, but I have heard that the Xai has some positive acceleration. I have used it for a long time now but I never noticed any acceleration. Just posting here to see what is recommended for me to buy. If you think I should just stick with the Xai that is fine too!
Non-braided cord?
Never saw the functionality one way or the other honestly. The braided cord does make me feel like I am buying something fancy though. smile.gif
Glossy finish?
Not sure, never had one with a glossy finish. Just had a G500 and my Xai, I really like the rubber coating on the Xai, but the G500 was very good as well and it was smooth plastic on top.
Button activation force?
Xai feels a little heavy to press, heard that the Sensei was different for the main 2 mouse buttons, but I am not dropping $100 on another mouse unless I am absolutely sure it is worth it. (probably not since I already have a Xai)
Driverless?
Doesn't matter to me
Onboard memory?
also does not matter
Optical of Laser?
I do not care which. I would like the best sensor out there. Whether that is an optical one or a laser one than so be it.

I use a hard plastic mouse pad (I can move to cloth if I need to, they both have their ups and downs) and I have very large hands, so a bigger mouse is what I am looking for. Bigger means heavier, but if there is a big mouse that is very light I will be all over that!

Just looking to see what people recommend honestly. I do not plan to buy a new one for a while but I want to see what other mice are out there that I am unaware of. Really only ever had a Xai, G500, and I used a Deathadder for a little while but it was not mine and the shape was very uncomfortable for me. LOD was also WAY too high for the Deathadder for me to even consider it.

Thanks for any recommendations of course! smile.gif


TL;DR
The absolute most perfect mouse for me to have would be one with a perfect sensor (does not have any prediction/angle-snapping, no acceleration, LOD of about 1CD or less), ambidextrous shape like the Xai, and as light as possible. Basically, I want a lighter Xai with a Deathadder sensor that has a 1CD LOD or less. The only catch is that I need it to be able to go from a low DPI for FPS (600ish, not too picky, I can get used to a new one easily) to around 1500DPI or so for using the OS and for RTS games (I HATE slow mouse pointers).

They're basically the same mouse and can go both wired and wireless. The older Mamba 3.5G (with older firmware) and the Lachesis 3G are the only mice from Razer right now with Philips Twin-Eye sensors and NO Dynamic DPI Scaling, which is basically pointer acceleration. I'm in touch with Razer about this and it might be that they'll release firmwares for their other mice to disable Dynamic DPI Scaling, but I can't guarantee that of course.

The RAT 7 & 9 use the same Twin-Eye sensor although afaik have no Dynamic DPI Scaling. Anyway for any of these Twin-Eye mice:
They are great and probably the most accurate out there, but make sure to use them on hard mousepads (plastic, glass...) and that you have no vibrating things around the mouse (desk ventilator or subwoofer for example).

I've heard about something like this, but it definitely was no gaming mouse. You'll probably find it pretty easy by googling for silent or quiet mouse.

Hmmm....im guessing that they're so hyper-accurate that a bass line will throw them off? I ended up buying a RaT 7 from an OCN'er ...now just need to find a mousepad suitable for it. a hard mousepad, you say? any suggestions?

rolleyes.gif Its because the two Sensors(hence the name) look in a different angle to the Surface.

Got the G400 today, the one with no prediction. So far, I'm loving it.

Hi my R.A.T. 7 just started screwing up on me has a double some times triple clicking issue which is annoying so i'm looking for a new one

1. What's your grip style?
Palm

2. What's your sensitivity?
Varies i was used to my MX518 at max DPI and now With my rat7 i'm at 4000 i really don't have a preference but in the 2000+ i'm good

3. What's your maximum budget?
What budget lol i don't have a max but lets just say 100$~

4. Do you want additional buttons?
i only need back forward dpi switch and sniping i got used to it but rarely play fps so not really needed

5. What games do you play?
CS:S, SC2, DOTA2, Borderlands, Skyrim, Terraria, Minecraft. I play a bunch of games so no specific genre

6. Do you mind about prediction?
seriously don't know what prediction is sorry for being a nub


7. Other relevant information:
Weights is a cool and if it glows id prefer blue that's about it
Using a Razer goliathus mat the extended control one if that's of any use

Thanks

post #138 of 6260
1. What's your grip style?
Pretty much a fingertip grip mixed with palm grip. I don't have my whole palm resting on the mouse just a bit of the thumb-side, my pinkie is placed on the mouse mat and ring finger is placed on the side (only use 2 fingers for left/right/scroll).

2. What's your sensitivity?
Anything really. I play a mixture of games so I like the ability to switch from high DPI to low DPI between, or even during, gameplay.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Within reason. I don't want to go spend $150 on a mouse, but I'm happy to spend a decent amount if it's worth it.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Only a few, I don't play MMORPG's anymore so too many would just be wasted.

5. What games do you play?
FPS, RPG, some RTS.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Never had it so wouldn't know.

7. Other relevant information:
Customizable weight would be nice but not required, shape of the mouse isn't that important as long as it won't kill my wrist. A "Precision Aim" button like in the new Cyborg RAT's is my most desired feature, however I dislike the high price of the RAT5 (plus, the look of it, really?). Right-handed. Not wireless.


I currently use an Arc Touch Wireless as it's easy to carry along with the laptop and looks pretty epic (atleast, imo) however it is definitely not a gaming mouse.
Looking at a Sharkoon Fire Glider as it's very cheap, good DPI range, changeable weight but lacks a Precision Aim feature.

A corsair m60? Idk, never had one, never really suggested mice to people either (mice I haven't owned anyway). Just looks like it may be right for you. Not sure about the grip though, looks pretty comfy IMO.
post #140 of 6260
I got a few questions:

Firstly, if you could have any mouse in the world, what would you get? Need suggestions, really, I don't know what to get. I posted on here before with a list of my preferences but that was a while ago and no one really responded (cant be bothered to check now, and I wanna try and get a broad range of opinions). Also, if it's not too much to ask, what would you get from the following list (if your chosen one mouse in the world is not on here):

-Deathadder 3.5g/ black edition
-G400
-G9x
-SS Sensei
-Imperator 4g
-M60
-Kova+
-Zowie AM
-SS Kana
-Ghost m8000x
-G700

I'm a low sensitivity player, and lift my mouse alot (although I can fix the deathadder with the magic tape on the sensor trick) and I can use any grip, really don't care. Prefer no prediction, I don't really notice it in game but I'd at least like to be able to turn it off.

Secondly, why is it that people seem to always recommend optical over laser for gaming (at least FPS gaming)? I understand laser mice have slight acceleration issues, but some you can remove it via software and games like CS:S have a raw input option in the menu etc. Surely the acceleration (all <5% of it, or some pathetic figure like that) can't instantly render all laser mice absolutely useless for fps?

I do apologise for posting twice, I posted then realised I had just posted beforehand and can't figure out how to delete an entire post.
