[Official] The Mouse Suggestion Thread - Page 16

post #151 of 6288
1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip grip, but I sometimes tend to go over using a claw grip.

2. What's your sensitivity?
I use a medium sensitivity, about 10 cm for a 360 degree turn.

3. What's your maximum budget?
I'd feel comfortable with something around $50.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Not necessary as I currently play without them, but I don't know, they may be helpful.

5. What games do you play?
Mostly Urban Terror and Natural Selection 2, first being a FPS that started off as a mod for Quake 3 and is its own game now, second being some mix of FPS and RTS that is still in beta phase, many of you may know Natural Selection 1 which was a mod for Half-Life.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I don't know if my current mouse has prediction, but it sounds like a **** thing. I want total control over my movement and aim as it is important for being good at Urban Terror. Therefore no build-in mouse acceleration and no prediction, it is important for me that the mouse is able to track my actions precisely.

7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.
some examples: LOD, ambidextrous shape, weight, wireless, non-braided cord, glossy finish, button activation force, driverless, onboard memory, etc
No no, never made my mind up about stuff like this. Though I have to say that when I read "button activation force" that my current mouse button is pretty hard to push, which makes it harder to aim when you shoot. That is maybe a problem. I of course want to best possible sensor available and use a cloth pad by the way, the SteelSeries Qck one.

Hope you can help me, this topic is way too big to understand after reading a couple of hours in an online forum, at least for me. But I do see that here are lots of people with competence and therefore are hoping for your advice.

You did. I was in the same boat as you but I am a lot more picky about mice than you judging from your post and I love it. The best mouse that I have ever owned hands down. biggrin.gif I just wish that it was shaped a little bit more like the Xai since the sides of the mouse are shaped like / \ so your fingers need to get used to a slightly firmer grip.

When I say they are shaped like this

/ \

I do not mean that the mouse is shaped like that from a bird's eye view. If you were to put your chin on the table that the mouse is sitting on and look at the mouse head-on or look at the mouse from behind, the sides would have that shape. It is not nearly as steep as the slashes are that I am using to illustrate it and you it is difficult to see it, but you can feel it. If you have tried a Xai then you will know that the sides of that have a slight inward curve towards the bottom that makes a little "handle" for your fingers and makes it easy to lift.

The Xai is shaped sort of like this (from the same view from before)

/ \
\ /

So it has a very slight curve inward on the sides of the mouse that make it easy to lift up. The only problem with the mouse though is that the sensor has 5% acceleration and is a laser so it doesn't like cloth pads and if you like very light mice it weighs in at about 98g. That is a little heavy for someone who likes lighter mice.


The Zowie AM is basically a Xai shape, just thinner and the sides have a slightly different shape but it really is not bad at all. When I first put my hand on it and needed to lift up the mouse it felt different (I don't like different, it bothers me) so it was probably worse for me than many other people on here. After using the mouse for a little while though I got used to the feel and I really could not imagine using anything else. The weight of the mouse is better (88g), the shape is near-perfect for ambidextrous mice (the only kind I will ever buy now), the clicks make a louder click noise and are SLIGHTLY harder to press that most other mice, the sensor is perfect (except for people who flip their mice past 2.8m/s, so about 0.1% of gamers I would guess) and the colors are just awesome lol. The harder to press clicks I liked a lot when I first tried out the mouse, but started to bother me after gaming for a very long time (6 hours+). Now that my fingers have gotten used to them I can click faster and more precisely than before and they are awesome! biggrin.gif

TL;DR: Get exited for your new mouse! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Just curious about the deathadder (3.5G)

I have a light coloured desk, and I really don't like using a mousepad. I just find that it's easier to use my desk than a mousepad, I'm a low sens player usually (sometimes bump it up a bit to try something new) and my mousepad is too small for me (need a QCK+ or something similar). So will it track on a light hard surface, because I read somewhere that it won't?
post #155 of 6288
1. What's your grip style? Claw/fingertip grip, sort of between the two

2. What's your sensitivity? Normally 1800

3. What's your maximum budget? $60-70 (US), but would prefer to go lower if possible

4. Do you want additional buttons? Yes, at least the 2 side buttons

5. What games do you play? Mostly FPS and action RPGs like the Fallouts, Mass Effects, Elder Scrolls, etc.

6. Do you mind about prediction? Not sure, but I suppose it's a bad thing?

7. Other relevant information: I really want a "ratcheted" scroll wheel that clicks into place when scrolling one page down, as opposed to one that spins freely. I was ready to buy a CM Storm Spawn, until I found that its wheel wasn't ratcheted. I'm replacing a G9 that I liked, and I figure I might have to just get a G9x, as it seems there are few, if any alternatives to what I want. I have fairly small hands, so I think some of the mid-sized mice that are okay with palm or claw grip will be too big. I use a dark cloth mousepad (Razer Goliathus speed) if that helps.

I hope you guys can help me choosing a new mice, because the lights from my Roccat Kova doesn't work anymore and the scroll wheel doesn't work that well anymore and sometimes it just stops working and i need to replug it.

1. What's your grip style?
Claw/palm grip (somewhere between)
2. What's your sensitivity?
0-3000 DPI
3. What's your maximum budget?
100 euro
4. Do you want additional buttons?
2 side buttons.
5. What games do you play?
BF3, LoL (MMO, RTS and FPS)
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not really, (if i can turn it off)
7. Other relevant information:
nope.

1. What's your grip style?
Between palm and fingertip grip.

2. What's your sensitivity?
Currently using 1800dpi, 2 sensitivity ingame and windows sens 6/11.
Edit: I guess this is considered high sens. 10-15cm/360°

3. What's your maximum budget?
Around 100€ for the mouse and a mousepad for it.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Not reguired but a plus if the mouse has them.

5. What games do you play?
CoD4, bf3 in future when i'll get a new rig. And also RPGs like the witcher and occasionally some other FPS games.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
The less prediction, the better.

7. Other relevant information:
The mouse will replace my mx518, which is near its death. I want the most accurate sensor in the market coupled with around 3500 DPI if possible. And I need mousepad suggestions for the mouse also, because at the moment I'm using a crappy Allsop one which I bought for ~5€. And please no cordless suggestions.

Please mice experts of OCN help me! Thanks in advance.

1. What's your grip style?
fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?
1800ish? idk. I usually max the dpi on the mouse and turn sensitivity down in the game.

3. What's your maximum budget?
less than $50 (US)

4. Do you want additional buttons?
yes, the 2 side buttons

5. What games do you play?
FPS

6. Do you mind about prediction?
i dont know what that is but i dont like the sound of it

7. Other relevant information:
I bought the Razer deathadder thinking that since it works for everyone else, it will work for me. It feels bulky and cheap and i'm just not smooth with it. Funny enough, i just started using a "microsoft wireless mobile mouse 4000" at work and it feels awesome. SMALL and HEAVY would be my most important preferences, and wired. I did a google search for "best fingertip mouse" and came up with the coolermaster storm spawn, any good?
