post #161 of 6207
1. What's your grip style?
Kind of a fingertip-claw style where my palm rests on the butt of the mouse

2. What's your sensitivity?
Not, sure, currently using this cheap $8 mouse but I'm going to use this for starcraft so i'd say it'd be 1800+ dpi

3. What's your maximum budget?
$70

4. Do you want additional buttons?
2 should be enough

5. What games do you play?
Looking primarily to use this for starcraft 2 but maybe some BF3

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not sure if this is good or not, if it helps me click my units better in starcraft or shoot people easier in BF3 sure. Using this for gaming only. I guess if it has this and can be turned off in some way if I don't like it, I wouldn't mind it

7. Other relevant information:
Want it to be well built (won't die on me randomly in like 2 months). So far I've been looking at G9x and Deathadder primarily but I'm open to other suggestions
post #162 of 6207
1. What's your grip style?
I either claw or palm, depends on the size of the mouse. (I can palm the deathadder perfectly)

2. What's your sensitivity?
I use a TON of different sensitivities, from like 100dpi to 4000.

3. What's your maximum budget?
I don't really have one

4. Do you want additional buttons?
I have to have two buttons on the left side for my thumb, and at least one more for an on the fly dpi change.

5. What games do you play?
Tons of League of legends, some tf2 and some battlefield.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I would prefer a mouse without it.

7. Other relevant information:
I really need an on the fly dpi change button. It would be great if it is really precise, like razer on the fly change, but it's not a dealbreaker. I also prefer a lightweight mouse over a heavy mouse. I was thinking maybe the mionix naos 5000, or maybe the the razer mamba, but I don't really know.

Hey guys,

I am currently wanting to buy a new mouse, because I had to return my old one,, because it started to jitter, and the shop did not have that particular mouse in store at that moment, so I am free to buy a new one (I was not really content with that mouse anyways). So let's fill out all that details:

1. What's your grip style?
I use palm grip all of the time. I tried to claw some smaller mice, but i just does not feel right for me.

2. What's your sensitivity?
I use a medium sensitivity, I believe. Usually it's somewhere between 800 and 1600 dpi.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Like about 70€ (That's what i payed for my last mouse)

4. Do you want additional buttons?
I'd like to have a side button, but if I find a mouse, that is very good in most other terms, I will take one without additional buttons, too. Dpi switch buttons are not needed, because I usually only use one sensitivity.

5. What games do you play?
I play mostly League of Legends (a Dota clone, for those of you who don't know) and from time to time some fps games, but those not so serious.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I read a lot about that this is not a con or a pro, but that it is about preference. In the past I have usedboth mice with and without acceleration, and currently I am used to predeiction I think, but if there is a mouse, which meets my other requirements and does not have prediction, I'd prefer that.

7. Acceleration:
I'd like the mouse to have no (or at least almost not noticable) acceleration. This probably means I am looking for a mouse with an optical sensor.

8. LOD:
I'd like to have a fairly low LOD, because I am recentering the mouse quite often, and thus not having to left it so high would be kinda nice.

9. Shape:
In the past I mostly used ergonomic shaped mice, but I'd like to try out ambidextrous shaped mice now.

10. Wired/Wireless:
I defenitely want the mouse to be wired.

11. Finnish:
I have used both mice with a rubber coated finnish and a glossy/plastic finnish. I have to say that on plastic mice, my hand starts to sweat quite a bit, but it's not that much of a problem, but I'd prefer rubber coated mice.

12. Drivers:
I'd prefer the mouse to work without a driver, because I am a mac user, and most of the time, there is no mac driver, so a driverless mouse will be best here I guess.

13: Mice I have used/tested so far:
- Logitech mx518:
First serious mouse I ever used. I find it quite nice, though I'd rather have a mouse without prediction. Also I am not that content with the mousewheel, it's not really that accurate (no precises clicks etc...). I am currently using this mouse.

- Steelseries Ikari laser:
I ordered this mouse and tested it, but it did not really fit my needs because the acceleartion it had was too big. Also the shape was not really perfect for me: Although it was quite comfortable, when i lay my hand on the mouse, I was holding it in a slight diagonal way, wich resulted in diagonal curser movement, when i was just aiming for horizontal/vertical movement.

- Mionix Naos 500:
I bought this mouse, but had to return it, as I mentioned above. Except for the acceleration, I was quite happy with the mouse. I liked the shape very much. However, the acceleration often made me play at higher dpi rates, as I really wanted to, because the acceleration was much less noticable at higher dpi rates. All in all, a solid mouse for me, but I'd prefer something without acceleration much more. Also as I mentioned before, I'd like to try ambidextrouse shaped mice.

14. Mice I read about and that I might like to try (maybe you could comment on those in terms of my needs):
- Steelseries Kana (Black)
- Zowie AM
- Logitech g400

14. Final words:
I hope you get an idea of what kind of mouse I am looking for and I am looking forward to your advice and your suggestions smile.gif

1. What's your grip style?

Palm/Fingertip, mostly.

2. What's your sensitivity?

Fairly high, but I don't have an exact number.

3. What's your maximum budget?

No budget, but I try to be reasonable and stay in that $100-150 range, anything less is fine too.

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Additional buttons would be helpful, since my keyboard has no macros (ducky shine). I'd prefer a mouse that has at least 5 buttons.

5. What games do you play?

I'm heavy MMO player (3-4 hours a day, probably), with some SC2 and BF3 mixed in.

6. Do you mind about prediction?

Not particularly, but I would like the option to turn it off if needed.

7. Other relevant information:

This is the last accessory to my computer upgrade. Since I play MMOs the most, I figure macro buttons would be helpful when the games I want come out (Diablo III, GW2). Durability is also a concern, since I was looking initially at the Kova [+] and DeathAdder but saw the durability issues in both of the models.

You could consider the Razer Naga, Naga Epic, or Naga Hex if you are looking for a mouse with a lot of buttons. The first two have 14 or 15 additional buttons I believe, don't have mine in front of me to count them all, and it works well for that grip style. The Naga Hex only has 8 or 9, as it has 6 on the left side instead of 12 like the previous Naga's.

I play a lot of League of Legends and like my Zowie EC1 Black and am considering getting a Zowie AM. If you need/want a ambidextrous mouse I'd recommend the AM, but this is based on recommendations to me for this mouse and my experience with Zowie to this point.

I'm looking for a mouse that has a very accurate sensor and isn't very high/big.
1. Claw mostly.
1. High. I have a 1900x1200 24" monitor and am looknig to add a couple of 32"'s soon.
3. No budget.
4. Don't care.
5. RTS games.
6. Not too fussed as long as it is easy to control accurately. I liked the G400's sensor but it hurt my wrist due to being too tall/big.
7. I imagine I would prefer an ambidextrous shape and a mouse that isn't glossy. I'm currently using the Razer Deathadder Black Edition but find the left/right click buttons too sensitive; this is uncomfortable as it means I can't rest my fingers on the left/right click buttons. I use a PureTrak Talent mouse mat but it's too slow for my liking so I'm open to suggestions for a new mouse pad/mat. I prefer a large surface because I change my seating position quite frequently - can never seem to get comfortable frown.gif. I have quite a wide hand but don't like to arch my wrist. I disliked all the laser mice I tried but I guess I could try another one.
Mouse owned:
Razer Deathadder
Razer Deathadder Black Edition
Razer Mamba
Logitech MX510, 518, G9, G500, G400
Steelseries Xai

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Ben.

1. What's your grip stye? Palm and Fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity? 1400 at the moment

3. What's your maximum budget? I'll pay whatever it takes

4. Do you want additional buttons? At the very least I need two thumb-buttons, but most mice have those these days. An extra one or two buttons can't hurt in case I play an MMO though, but nothing like the gazillion buttons found on the Naga.

5. What games do you play? Mostly shooters (first and third person), but I also play RPGs and some other genres where your mouse doesn't really matter. No RTS, occasionally an MMO (Guild Wars 2 is most def on the list though)

6. Do you mind about prediction? I mind terribly, and I want zero, none, zilch prediction.

7. Other relevant information: I'm currently still on my trusty MX518, reason I'm thinking of side-grading (you can't upgrade the MX518 man, come on) is because, in FPS I seem unable of lining up shots when the target becomes too small. The cursor will 'hop' a few pixels no matter how slowly I move the mouse, and always, always, the enemy is between the two points my gun keeps jumping to.

LOD-wise, I need it to keep tracking for a bit, because when the going gets tough my hand sorta cramps and I lift the left side of my mouse up. If it's the same LOD as the MX518 that's fine, but no less. The mouse shouldn't be too light, don't want to get spooked and accidentally throw my mouse halfway across the room. Needs to be wired too.

Thanks.

Try a CM Storm Spawn, if you like the shape. Latest firmware comes with a wide range (as in they cover both low and high) of CPI steps so it should suit you even for multi-monitor setups. Not sure if the buttons are too sensitive for you though - that's something you might want to get used to because apart from the Zowie line of mice, most gaming mice nowadays use Omrons, which are very easy to click.

A good substitute for the Mx518 with the characteristics you described would be a DeathAdder (3.5G or BE, depends on your preference on material), if you like the shape. You would need to lower a bit your sensitivity (best step for the DA is 1800CPI), but that's more a less it.

I find it funny that you dislike prediction but you're currently using a Mx518, which is notorious for it's great amount of it smile.gif
post #170 of 6207
Yeah, that's why I'm looking for a new one, for most of its life the prediction didn't bother me because I wasn't good enough for it to hamper me or for me to even notice it. But now I need it gone. tongue.gif I'll look into the DeathAdder, thanks. None of the shoddy Razer build quality in that one?
