You could also look into the Naga Hex, has 6 side buttons instead of the 12 on the other models. And the shoddy Razer quality, basically it's hit or miss as with all of their products. I haven't had issues with my Naga or Mamba, but hadn't logged a lot of hours on either. These days you get what you pay for, and even then it's questionable. Gotta love the days of QA being done by the customer, saves them money I suppose.

1. What's your grip style?
Looking at the pictures in this the 'read this first' thread, it looks like I use a claw grip but my fingers aren't curved that much, they're more like the fingertip grip picture

2. What's your sensitivity?
windows setting is 6, BF3(that's the only game I really play right now) setting is pretty low, I have no idea what this mouse's DPI is (it's just a cheap ~$10 Logitech I found somewhere years ago)

3. What's your maximum budget?
around $50, I don't really have any money I should be spending on a mouse, so cheaper is better if possible

4. Do you want additional buttons?
a couple is good, I don't play MMOs so I don't need tons though

5. What games do you play?
Just BF3 atm, other FPSs in the future. I really hope I don't get addicted to another MMO again (wasted so much of my life on Runescape for like 6 or 7 years and it's not even good...) Other games too but FPSs are the most important.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I have no idea, optional or none at all would be ideal I think, but I really have no idea.

7. Other relevant information:
This is going to be my first "real" mouse, so I don't know what to expect. My brother-in-law has a Deathadder and a Zowie EC2 so I'm going to try those out when I go over there, possibly this weekend. I don't know if I should just get whichever of those I like better or go with a different suggestion if I get one here.

You can recommend me a mouse pad too if it's really cheap. I just use mine on my wooden desk atm.

If either of those feel perfect to you then by all means go with one of those. There is no better way to find the right mouse than by trying them. I currently use the Zowie EC1 and really like it (I have a grip similar to yours from the description). I like the Naga and am considering getting a Hex and Zowie AM to try, and possible another to find the best fit for me. Unfortunately I don't have the rep to sell on OCN yet so I'm aiming to get it up and sell some of the stuff I no longer need tongue.gif

Anyways, good luck sir thumb.gif

1. What's your grip style? Fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity? Mostly have it set to 2800 DPI in gaming profile (in setpoint, currently using a G9)

3. What's your maximum budget? AU $100 ish max

4. Do you want additional buttons? Would prefer atleast 2 side buttons, other than that not bothered, a few extra can't hurt.

5. What games do you play? Just about everything, but mainly MMO's, RPG's, FPS. (Dungeons and Dragons online, Wow, Aion, Diablo 3, Guild Wars 2 (when it comes out), CoD, Fear 2/3 to name a few.

6. Do you mind about prediction? Not sure, haven't really looked into, not sure if the G9 I'm using now has it or not.

7. Other relevant information: Adjustable weight would be nice. Want a new mouse because the "skin" on the changeable shells on the G9 is peeling off everywhere and can't get replacements in Aus. frown.gif

If you want more than two side buttons, consider the Naga Hex. It doesn't have as high of a learning curve as the Naga Epic, but still has more side buttons (6 of them).

First of all, i'm going to say that i'm currently using a 3-year old Adder and have been using a Logitech G5 before it conked out. So most of my answers will be because that's the only mouse shape i've used. I also use a goliathus speed for my pad.

1. What's your grip style?
I'm thinking something in between palm and claw. My palm is completely flat on the mose, but fingers are slightly bent.

2. What's your sensitivity?
Low sens. I use 1800 dpi n my DA with win sens at 6. I usually end up dragging the sensitivity bar on most game to around 1-3 bars.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Not really an issue but i guess $100 would be max for me.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
The thing about extra buttons is i do want to use them, but the buttons on the DA feel flimsy that i can't use them well.

5. What games do you play?
Mostly lots of top down stuff. Big priority on MoBAs and Diablo 3.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Yes, need it off.

7. Other relevant information:
My biggest priorities would probably be, no pred, zero acceleration, and a high control speed. Wired would be nice as i don't care for wireless anyway. Low LOD would probably be a good thing too since i play ridiculously low sens.

I've been reading some articles on the net and the info i get is that i should stay away from laser sensors. I can' seem to find a good optical mouse with the specs i put up though.

As much as i love my adder the rubberized top is starting to melt, and the flimsy side buttons are really starting to annoy me.


EDIT: Added LOD requirement.

1. What's your grip style?
Something between claw and grip, not exactly the claw but not exactly the grip style. It's a mix of both.

2. What's your sensitivity?

Windows default, in game 3 sensitivity.

3. What's your maximum budget?
u$s 50

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yeah two buttons at least

5. What games do you play?
CS 1.6, TFC, TF2, CS Source.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Yeah

7. Other relevant information:
1000 Hz usb poll rate default or set by and overclocker program.
I want a optical mouse to use with a cloth pad. I really hate laser mouse
post #178 of 6207
1. What's your grip style?
Mostly Palm, sometimes Fingertip. I have fairly large hands. I currently own a Razer DeathAdder 3g, and it is a perfect fit for my hand.

2. What's your sensitivity?
Honestly unsure. I don't really fiddle around with it too much. For example when I firtst booted up my sig rig a few days ago, I just plugged in the DeathAdder, and am happy with where the sensitivity is right now without making adjustments.

3. What's your maximum budget?
None provided the mouse is worth the price.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
5 Buttons have done the job so far, so I cannot think of a reason to increase more. R/L, Scroll, and 2 by the thumb for website navigation work just fine for me.

5. What games do you play?
LoL, some RTS, RPG, and will be spending a large quantity of time on D3 upon release.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not really one way or the other.

7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.

Nothing really necessary in the extras department. I have a friend who went from the DeathAdder to the Mamba, and he loves it, but I have had bad luck with wireless mice in the past.


In Summary:

You guys may simply recommend I stick with the DeathAdder, and if so, I am ok with that, but with new mice coming out all the time I wanted to see about other, possibly better options. Thanks for the time and help.

1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip
2. What's your sensitivity?
800 mainly
3. What's your maximum budget?
A $70 suggestion and unlimited budget suggestion would be nice
4. Do you want additional buttons?
In addition to pressing down on the scroll wheel at least 2 side buttons
5. What games do you play?
League of Legends and MW3 so RTS and FPS
6. Do you mind about prediction?
I have a MX518 with prediction which I bought without knowing it had prediction. If prediction is bad then I don't want it. I also have had times sniping where getting right on a headshot is jerky (although that might be sensitivity) so if I should switch then I can
7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.
Driverless is better but not necessary. Shape similar to MX518 would be nice but not that important. Weight lighter/medium, the option to turn off and on prediction could be nice. MX518 has been my mouse of choice for ages. I have a Razer Imperator and I don't like it as much and also notice the lift up and drop down combination makes the cursor move to the bottom right of the screen.

1. What's your grip style?
Palm grip
2. What's your sensitivity?
800 DPI
3. What's your maximum budget?
around 100$, could go a little higher if it's worth it
4. Do you want additional buttons?
I'm currently using the Razer Copperhead and I like the button setup. There are 2 buttons on the left and right side of the mouse
5. What games do you play?
Battlefield 3 only
6. Do you mind about prediction?
No
7. Other relevant information:
I'd like to be able to adjust the weight, though this isn't THAT important. The reason I'm buying a new mouse is simply cause my copperhead is old and faulty now. My main priority is comfort.

Thanks
