I'm trying to decide between getting another Deathadder (the newer 2013 editition) or something else...

1. What's your grip style?
Somewhat of a mix between all 3... but mostly claw

2. What's your sensitivity?
9.1" 360 (1000 DPI, 0.07 in Bf3)

3. What's your maximum budget?
$70ish, preferably $50

4. Do you want additional buttons?
2 side buttons are necessary. A few more buttons is fine, but not some 12 button monstrosity.

5. What games do you play?
Battlefield 3/4 competitively, occasionally CSGO, other shooters, anything else.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Never noticed it, but I assume I don't want it.

7. Other relevant information:
I don't like ambidextrous shapes
Weight - Deathadder weight +/- works for me, I haven't seriously gamed on anything else so I wouldn't know
Wireless would be nice, but as a competitive gamer I can't risk any input lag at all, or batteries running out while playing
glossy finishes are the most idiotic idea for anything that you touch.. I hate the glossy sides of my Deathadder, but I can live with it.

I've heard bad things about laser mice so I'm trying to avoid them. I briefly tried a Steelseries Sensei once and it felt weird, not sure if I would get used to it.

Mice that I'm currently considering:
Deathadder 2013
Zowie EC(2?)
Logitech G400(s?)
Steelseries Ikari Optical

If you like the DeathAddder and want rubbery sides then look at getting either the 3.5G Black Edition or the DeathAdder 2013.

If you want something else then the Zowie EC eVo is a good mouse to look at. I went from a DeathAdder to an EC1 eVo and had no issues adjusting.

Good mouse for small hands? Sorry i'm too lazy to look through the whole thread for a good suggestion.

Zowie FK is pretty good. All I hear is how it was designed for small hands.

1. What's your grip style?
- Fingertip, I have small hands.

2. What's your sensitivity?
- 1600 - 3200 DPI

3. What's your maximum budget?
- 80 USD

4. Do you want additional buttons?
- Besides left & right & middle clicks & scroll wheel, DPI changer (1 - 2 buttons) & side buttons (2 - 4 buttons) would be nice.

5. What games do you play?
- FPS, and I use AutoCad & Photoshop too.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
- Yes, I do mind.

7. Other relevant information:
- LOD: I usually lift my mouse off so low LOD is nice.
- Shape: I can adapt to both ambidextrous and ergonomic shapes.
- Button activation force: medium.
- My hands don't sweat.
- Driver should have elegant and easy-to-use UI.

8. Mousepads?
- I don't know about this, I just need a mousepad that will perform well with that mouse. 30 USD is my maximum budget for this.

Thanks for actually reading what I wrote and not suggesting things I said I don't want (ie high price, and laser) thumb.gif

I think I'm just going to go with the deathadder. I was thinking about the Zowie but they don't sell EC1s anymore, and I don't want the smaller EC2.

copy-pasted this post from here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1436269/naos-8200-vs-m95
I read a bunch of posts from these threads:
http://www.overclock.net/t/854100/gaming-mouse-sensor-list
http://www.overclock.net/t/1251156/an-overview-of-mouse-technology
http://www.overclock.net/t/786643/overall-mouse-user-comparison-rating-finding-the-best-mouse-on-ocn
http://www.overclock.net/t/1420084/best-optical-sensor-in-the-market-atm-deathadder-2013s-s3988-or-logitech-g400s-s3095
One other page on sensors:
http://www.esreality.com/wiki/Hardware:Mice_Sensors

Based on the article on maximum useful CPI's, it sounds like the cutoff for usefulness was not much more than 3200 CPI, but having a higher CPI is harmless, as long as lower native CPI's are included alongside of them. Desk space is really tight with maybe six inches to move the mouse around. 1920x1080 is the native resolution of the monitors, although that is less important than anything as the games played are usually FPSes or vehicle-based RTSes, and not 2D MMO's.

What seems to be preferred in the Mice Suggestion thread is optical sensors over laser, the S3988 in the Deathadder 2013 4G being the top optical sensor made by Avago. But people say it has acceleration, but less so than the A9800 sensor in the NAOS and m95. The other top suggestion is the g400s with the 3090 sensor. The above link has a long debate on it; my input is that it has 4000 CPI vs the 6400 CPI of the Deathadder 2013 4G, and 25G vs 50G max acceleration, and a max speed of 140in/s vs 200in/s. I've gone through probably three mx518's before sensor failures and rubberization gomming, which have a similar chassis to the g400s, so I don't expect their product to last six months under the level of wear they're getting in a system used maybe 19 hours a day by various people.

I'm trying to calculate my dpi in bf3 so you guys can suggest me a mouse but I'm not sure if my calculation is correct. Please help me out.

I tried rotating 360 in bf3 last night, starting from the edge of my mouse pad, my mouse ended 1" away. I was playing on 1920x1080 so 1920*4/1 = 7680. I kinda doubt I need a value that high.

This setting is better for close range combat I think. At long range I definitely would tune it down.

Can anyone tell me how to properly measure that so I can try again tonight? Thanks

You mean doing 360 degrees takes you only one inch? If that's the case then yes, you could use high dpi mice, especially in BF3 where you skip like mad on higher sens...

Btw you don't need to measure, go to www.mouse-sensitivity.com and let the site calculate for you.
