post #1571 of 6207
I'm currently using a Logitech MX1000 wireless mouse, which is not really working at 100%, so I'm looking at replacing it with a corded mouse, prefer laser, do not need a lot of buttons, something as big as the MX1000, or maybe even a little larger then the MX1000, have not really set a budget.

Are there preferred brands in mice or brands that not considered reliable?
Anyone want to throw out ideas?

How does the CM Storm Recon do with tracking? Anyone have any problems with it? The spawn seems too small for my hands and I'm worried about the RAT 3's quality.

I read reports of "pixel walking", which is inaccurate tracking at low speed movement.

The Zowie EC1 Evo is a similar shape but less curved on the edges. It's also pretty good. The buttons are very hard and the lift off distance is very low.

Ty for your input. I've read and heared only good about esp. the Deathadders.
But - unfortunatly - they have only 2 thumbbuttons, which are also horizontally arranged, aka "standard layout", which I want to avaoid.

The only Razer product, that "suits" my wants of bottons, their arrangement and the overall adjustability would be the "Ouruboros", that - as far as I've read the reviews, also - esp. by users biggrin.gif hasn't got a good reputation.

The Nagas - well I tried the 2013 editions at a local store :
they are definitly too small for my hand (would need also a "mayor pimping"wink.gif [see my first post here #1562]), even though the thumb button arragenment of the "Hex" is quite good. Due to its size the "Epic"s thumb buttons are mostly unsuable for me.

I've read, that the 2014 edition, at least of the Epic - dunno if there will be also a Hex - is somewhat bigger.
eh-smiley.gif Does anybody knows, if there is a "real" difference, or is it only "marginal" ? eh-smiley.gif

G400 would not be good for fingertip, it's big and heavy.

SS Kana V2
Zowie EC2 eVo, AM, FK
Roccat Savu, Kone Optical

Maybe one of these would suit you better.

I am currently on the lookout for a new mouse since my G400 died yesterday. It was a pretty good mouse for me so most probably I will buy a G400S.

I am satisfied with its performance, however, it didn't quite have the feeling like it 'fits-like-a-glove' that Imperator and G500 had. Those two used to fit perfectly into my hand. Only issue with those two mouse were Twin-Eye Sensor (imperator) and the placement of sensor in G500 for which sometimes it didn't have the precision that I desired.

I tried to use a palm grip on the G400 and only then it fits perfectly. But since I use a hybrid grip.. my wrist started to ache. frown.gif So that was the end of the experiment.

Is there any mouse in the market right now which has similar shape to G500/Imperator with a reliable tracking like G400? I know it sounds like best of both worlds but if I could one then that would very nice.

Grip Type: Hybrid.

1. What's your grip style?
Claw/Fingertip
2. What's your sensitivity?
I mainly use 2000 dpi when doing normal things like browsing the web and such and depending on how sensitive the game is I will drop the sensitivity slider in the game or drop the dpi to something like 800 if I can't get the sensitivity right. More often than not it is usually fine at 2000 dpi though.
3. What's your maximum budget?
Not sure if I really have one, I do not mind spending up to £70 if it is necessary
4. Do you want additional buttons?
I don't really mind, they are nice though but not essential they should have at least thumb buttons right?
5. What games do you play?
FPS, RPGs, RTS you name it I play it all. At the moment I am playing a lot of League of Legends that is my most consistent game but I jump back and forth depending on what my friends play.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
I have tried to read up on this and I am still not sure what it is, if you could explain this to me in laymens terms that would be great
7. Other relevant information:
I do not want anything from Razer as I have had reliability problems with both mice and headsets from them, regardless of how good they may be.

Currently I own a Logitech G500 and I think it may have been the wrong choice for me, don't get me wrong it is a good mouse that has served me well but I find myself Claw/Fingertip gripping it more than I palm grip it and I get the feeling that this is not a Claw grip mouse anyway. Basically I want to ask more than anything since I am Claw gripping the G500 am I basically going it horrendously wrong?
So I was thinking it was perhaps time for an uprade to a mouse that might be more suitable, it all depends as the G500 I am using is perfectly fine and I have no problems.
One more thing that I would like to add is that I do not think I have large hands, I am not sure if that really means anything but I am not sure what constitutes as medium or large hands in the first place so I do not really know what mice in that regard I should be looking for either.

The 3 mice I was thinking of getting but I am not sure about were the Corsair M65, Cyborg R.A.T 7 or the Roccat Kone XTD. Now again it looks to be like the Roccat Kone XTD might be the wrong choice again but I am not sure, it is another palm mouse right? I mean I really like the look of the Kone XTD which is again why I wanted to see what people thought.

Out of those three mice, the RAT is a bad choice, especially for you. Not only is the sensor crap, but its a palm grip mouse, like all Logitech's (except for the G600 and G300). The Corsair M65 is a great choice for fingertip, well built, backed by Corsair's ironclad warrenty. Never used the Kone, so I can't help you there but I have used both of the others you mentioned.
Also take a look at, if they still have any anywhere, the Razer Diamondback. Its the only Razer product I would ever recommend, except for their mousepads which are excellent.

first of all THANKS.
i think i might change my grip, i think that something with the shape of mionix 8200/5000 will fit me. while using my 1.1a i find mi two right fingers sometimes getting in the way between the padd and the mouse. is there any mouse that has a similar shape(to the mionix 5000/8200), good build quality, decent (not excelent) sensor but chepaer? (i know there is no perfect mouse for 50dlls, thats why what i would give up is some sensor capacity)
with that shape i liked the savu, but ive read after a few months the antigrip coat wears off, and i will be really pissed when that starts to happen.


ps: i think it would be usefull for noobs like me if you could make a summary table listing decent mouses with their grip style, and maybe include some pros or cons. i think it will also help you tongue.gif (i know there is a sticky where there is some kind of pole for the best mice, but atm mionix5000 is winning with 5/5 and from what ive read it has some sensor problems, so i dont know how much i can trust that pole)
