If my Deathadder 3.5g stopped working today I'd want another 1. Even if I could choose from any mouse on the market. Out of all the mice I've bought and used over the years it is my favorite. For someone with fairly large hands it feels really comfortable and is a great mouse.

Yes, it can. At least for me and CS 1.6. In such high precision games, you don't aim. You see a target, you move your mouse and click. You hand eye coordination needs to be perfect. Its like juggling. You don't look at each ball and grab it, you just know where they are and assume their trajectory.
Mouse acceleration would be like some one screwing around with the balls in mid air.

Laser mice aren't absolutely useless for FPS, but optical are slightly better. Why would someone want worse (even by small margin) and probably more expensive mouse?

Pretty much set on a Black DeathAdder. Read additional thoughts. Otherwise is there another mouse that I should get based on what I want.


1. What's your grip style?

Fingertip, but virtually adaptable to any kind of mouse that fits what I need.
2. What's your sensitivity?
Very sensitive, 3200 DPI on my current malfunctioning Kinzu.
3. What's your maximum budget?
Would like it under $70 dollars, but will spend up to $100.
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Nice, but not necessary. Coming from a current Kinzu user.
5. What games do you play?
SC2, CS:S, BF3, LoL. However, if game preference comes in to play, SC2 would be at highest priority. I would like a mouse that is "known" for being well suited for RTSs.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
I do not like the current mouse acceleration that exists on my Kinzu.
7. Other relevant information:

I've gone through countless of mice, but I haven't tried a Razer DeathAdder because of the reputation it holds for various issues. My friend has the first DeathAdder for years now and had no problem with it. I used it and like the feel. I've had Mionix, Kinzu, Logitech G5 (favorite mouse of all time, but dead senor after... 6 years of great usage), G500, and dozens of Microsoft/Acer/Stock Mice. Now what are the chances of getting a faulty DeathAdder or ecountering a problem with them? I will be buying a Black DeathAdder when this post is 8hrs old based on what I like about it; my current Kinzu is acting up and steelseries has always failed me. Either I need to fully endorse my own decision or change the direction I'm going in.


I never lift off my mice; I wish to have a comfortable, accurate, stable and responsive mouse. I just need to hear personally is this the mouse I'm looking for?

I would say the Mionix Naos probably the most comfortable mouse out there and I can say, owning a Death Adder, it's more of a palm grip mouse if that really matters, it's a really nice all the same. Maybe look at the Naga. I use it because I love the number pad on the side, at least give it a look.

Forgot to mention I owned a Naga when I played WoW. I sold it after I quit, however it was a very good mouse in terms of performance. It was a tad uncomfortable especially for FPS (I tend to switch grips); my hands are so long and lengthy, fingertipping was difficult. As for the Mionix. I owned a 3200 and it was amazing in terms of comfort. However, it suffered from deceleration that was very prevalent and I felt as if the mouse buttons weren't responding fast enough, as it would take a while for each mouse button to spring up compared to my previous mice.


Good suggestions, but I've exhausted them; are there any others you could recommend?

1. What's your grip style?
Palm, but I am looking for a claw-grip mouse, because It's praised for better control than palm users.
2. What's your sensitivity?
Fairly medium-low. Examples are 2.0 in CS 1.6 and CSS.
3. What's your maximum budget?
Around $50
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Standard 2 side buttons would be nice, anything more is not needed.
5. What games do you play?
CS 1.6/CSS/Third Person Shooters/Dota/HoN/Warcraft 3
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Yes, I would not want prediction or huge acceleration in the mouse.
7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.
Only thing I'm looking for is a relative low LOD and a fairly low-medium weight as long it's lighter than the DeathAdder I'm using which is pretty darn heavy compared to the Microsoft WMO/IE.

1. What's your grip style?

My grip style appears to be a middleground between finger and claw. The bottom of my palm is firmly touching the butt of the mouse, with my fingers being slightly curved and holding it with a “german three”.

2. What's your sensitivity?

Medium-high, medium-medium
My sensitivity in TF2 is 3.62 at 450 DPI, with the resolution of 16:9, 1920x1080, at 90 fov ingame officially (even though the ratio makes it somewhere around 106 FOV according to a number of guides)

3. What's your maximum budget?

Within the range of 50-60 bucks, maybe higher if it is completely necessary.

4. Do you want additional buttons?

2-3 additional buttons would be more the enough for me.

5. What games do you play?

Quake Live, TF2, StarCraft2(not as active), various random shooters.

6. Do you mind about prediction?

I do not want it to have anything movement altering whatsoever, including acceleration of any kind or prediction.

7. Other relevant information:.

I am looking for a mouse which emphasizes and revolves itself around the ergonomics. I would prefer the lightest possible weight, something comparable to the Intellimouse 3.0 which I am currently using. I personally dislike braided cables, therefore something smooth or rubbery would be significantly nicer, and preferably something with more flexibility then a shower hose (if I were to mention a few braided cables). I do not particularly care about its aesthetics or covering, as long as the covering is not genuinely crippling (such as being extremely slippery or having poisonous spikes mounted at the mouse buttons.) Having the best possible sensor is also quite important to me.

Gunkers, read about CM Storm Spawn. It's a great mouse for SC2. It has some issues but for your preferences is should be good.
