I've been trying to find a new mouse, and I keep getting stuck. Help would be greatly appreciated.
1) What's my grip style?
Weird. I have a palm like grip, but I arch my fingers slightly off the mouse, but no where near the degree of "claw grip. I like to feel the back of the mouse in my palm, but have my wrist hit the table. I move the mouse, not by gripping it, but usually by passing it around between my fingers like a puck, or holding it by creasing my palm long ways, and moving it that way (like a pair of meditation balls).
Sorry, but i don't really know a simple way to describe my grip.
2) What's my Sensitivity?
X: 4000 Y: 5600 (I believe I increased the vertical sensitivity due to a failing in my current mouse, a RAT 7, which is falling apart after only 1.5 years.)
3) What's my maximum budget?
Lets say $200. I wouldn't mind saving money, however.
4) Do you want additional buttons?
YES! but not a billion like the Naga, 4-6 spread around the mouse (not on the thumb). Also would not count center buttons below the mouse wheel, or right-side buttons, as I never hit them (pinky is screwy, middle finger is long).
5) What games?
MMOs, RPGs, Action/Adventure.. FPS's only with RPG elements.
Rather not, I use a high sensitivity anyway, and can make precise movements on my own.
Favorites, but not necessary: Rubberized Surfaces, Metal Fixtures, Weight, all make a mouse feel nice and solid. 4.5" is as short in length as I want to go, and that's where its already starting to become uncomfortable. The same with width at 2.5". Wider seems better. I use a hardened black leather mouse pad. Wired preferrable, hate changing batteries in game.
Any thoughts? Ideas?
Ones I am currently considering:
Mad Catz MMO 7 (Though, hesitant due somewhat poor experience with Rat 7.)
Genius GX Gila (Buttons spread around is nice, worried might be too small)
Perixx Mx-3200 (one of my favorite mice was similar to the Kensington Slimblade, but not enough buttons)
Corsair Vengeance M95 (not sure I like having so many buttons around my thumb)Edited by Halfwise - 11/26/13 at 6:51pm
