post #1911 of 6207
Hey,

I´m just curious about your opinions - I´m looking for a new mouse and tested so far several models:
  1. Roccat Kone Pure Optical
  2. Roccat Savu, Roccat Kova[+]
  3. Zowie FK, Zowie EC eVo - EC2
  4. Zowie EC eVo CL - EC2
  5. CM Storm Spawn
  6. DA2013
  7. Imperator
  8. Ouroboros
  9. Mamba, Roccat Lua
  10. SS Sensei
  11. Razer Taipan
  12. G400s
  13. G100s

Old mouse was a G9x which I used for several years, so my grip style is a relaxed Claw-grip.

Currently I´m using a G400s which is pretty comfortable and I also like the build quality, buttons, mouse wheel, but my hands aren´t so big so I´m still looking for something "better".

It seems like after all those models, I would prefer some kind of mix between G100s, Zowie FK and Sensei because of the following reasons:

  • Zowie FK: I liked the low LOD compared to a Roccat Kone Pure Optical, but the mousewheel/buttons feels just weird - maybe I´ll buy a new Zowie FK 2014 and test it for some time to see if I can get used to it.
  • Sensei: the body and the grip is good for me but could be a little bit flatter on the backside.
  • G100: unfortunately there are no side buttons which are necessary for me but I like the shape and the size!


Any suggestions are appreciated.

I have already read the review from you metal571 about the Avior and it seems very interesting but I´m not sure if I should try it with those "requirements" because I didn´t like the Roccat Kova+ and also not the Razer Taipan?

You knew I was gonna answer this didn't you lol. See the thing I didn't like about the taipan shape either is that they don't give you enough room for your fingers on the sides. Mionix does, and it's well designed. If you like the Sensei shape, most of the time I would say you'd like the Avior shape. That's my take. It goes without saying that the sensor is as close to perfect as it gets. The mouse is flatter on the top as far as I can remember as well.

Hehe, I´m glad you did smile.gif - thanks. Yeah, another bad example would be the Kone pure Optical, there wasn´t enough space for my fingers on the right side so they touched also very often the mousepad which was annoying and disturbing during playing games but I liked the build quality which was quiet amazing compared to the other mice which I have ordered for testing.

Another question, is Mionix pretty new or just not as common as other brands? I can´t find many products from Mionix here in Austria.

Edit: Avior 7000 has been ordered biggrin.gif

Great, hope you enjoy it as much as I am enjoying playing BF4 with mine right now.

Mionix is pretty new-ish. They aren't as well known but are obviously making a big bang with us nerdier and more knowledgeable gaming mice consumer types. They were established in 2007 and have 5 employees currently designing everything from scratch to be as perfect as possible. Talk about a dedicated company.

64-pages was too much to read.

I don`t know about all everyone else`s needs, but in a mouse I NEED three things.

1) AMBIDEXTROUS. (10% of the worlds population is left-handed)

2) Works with the software for every system Windows XP ,Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Linux/Ubuntu. (We all average more then one computer)

3) Wireless. (although I have a great alternative/improvement to the wired option [for those critics who think wireless is slightly sluggish]).

Other than that I like a certain size and weight and battery life.



Actual concept-Ideas, I would want paying for.

The only wireless mice I can think of that are ambidextrous and are usable (but there is no such thing as closed source gaming mouse drivers for GNU/Linux) on all OSs would be:

Razer Ouroboros
SteelSeries Sensei Wireless

Both of which are complete **** and you shouldn't buy them because they are both laser mice with inconsistent positive acceleration and are not to be used for serious gaming. But, maybe you might like them if you aren't as competitive as myself.

I like the fact that they do try to listen. Actually some Steelseries reps are trying to change their mice based by this forum's feedback, awsome.
I've said it some times already.. the mouse seems really really promising according to the reviews.

I hope it will be here soon.. my Deathadder died on me and i wanna play properly again.

Fellow left hander here,
IMHO, the only good ambidextrous mice are corded,
I've used the Logitech M510 which is wireless, But I found it too small for my liking
It's tough being a lefty in a right handers world sad-smiley-002.gif

The Roccat Pyra is ambidextrous and offers a pretty decent optical sensor and good software configurbility, but it is a small form factor, as are probably the majority of wireless mice - given their target market is portable computing.

1. What's your grip style? Claw and then palm when lazy

2. What's your sensitivity? I've used 1800 dpi but 3200 worked well
