First I never bought anything from CM storm so I want to know how good their customers service is? Have you seen any rma regarding the Spawn?

The mouse wheel does look cheap. The review doesn't say anything about it so I guess it works ok but I want to hear more if someone tried it. By looking at all the reply in the review it seems to be great^^

About the low dpi sensor bad tracking some people say they have no issue with that. Have CM storm released a new version of the Spawn to fix the problem or made a new firmware? If yes, there is a way to tell which is the new version by looking at the box?


I know these are a lot of questions but I'm getting really interested in this mouse biggrin.gif
My customer service was not very good. They didn't reply my ticket.

Scroll wheel is good. Scroll button is OK (a bit hard).

No, it does not have a firmware yet that fix the 800dpi. Actually, the current firmware is the "fix". It was even worse!

If you're not going to use the 800dpi and you use low sensitivity, it's a near perfect mouse for fingertip grip.

You might look forward for the new CM Storm mosue (Xornet). It has the same shape as Spawn but it uses other sensor, which supposedly will fix the low dpi issues and support higher Perfect Control Speeds. Wait for someone to be a test subject before buying it. biggrin.gif


*edit*: they finally replied my ticket . After 3 months. wackosmiley.gif:laughings

Yeah maybe the Xornet will fix the low dpi jitter issue but it will have lower max dpi I don't know when I'll be able to get one here in Italy^^ The Spawn is alredy available in a shop near my city for 35€ and I don't think I'll be using the 800dpi since I'm always using 2000dpi @ 1000Hz on my Copperhead. Still it would be nice if all the sensor setting worked flawlessy.

When the xornet is going to be released anyway? biggrin.gif

Dunno, take a look at the Xornet threads and let me know if there's a date set already. biggrin.gif

1. What's your grip style? Kind of a hybrid between the three kinds of grips .. I'd say the claw grip would be the closest to it.

2. What's your sensitivity? Using 1800dpi on my Deathadder.

3. What's your maximum budget? $100

4. Do you want additional buttons? At least two on the side, more wouldn't hurt but I don't care as long as it has two.

5. What games do you play? Pretty much everything. FPS, MMO, RTS and RPGs are the big ones.

6. Do you mind about prediction? Don't mind.

7. Other relevant information:
Before I start on what I want for a new mouse, I'd like to add that I've been using a Deathadder for about a year but it's been occasionally registering single clicks as double click and has started to require more force on the left mouse button which is why I'm looking for a new mouse. Should I just get another Deathadder? I'm not sure if it's normal for a Deathadder to start having problems after only a year of use, but if it is I'd rather go for something more durable than another one.

Now, on to what I'd like in a new mouse.
- Good build quality, will last a long time of constant use.
- Similar in weight and size as the Deathadder. This one isn't very important, I guess it'd just help me get used to the new mouse faster.
- LEDs are not important, but they're a plus.

1. What's your grip style?

Claw/fingertip. I think mostly the claw grip.

2. What's your sensitivity?

Wouldn't honestly know, always had the most simple mouses one could get.

3. What's your maximum budget?

About 100 euro's is my absolute max. (Say about 130 dollars)

4. Do you want additional buttons?

That would be nice, like the sniping button on the RAT 9 I saw coming by. :3

5. What games do you play?

BFBC2, perhaps BF3 if it comes to steam. L4D(2), TF2, Dragon Age and Brink. Besides gaming I will be doing a lot, a lot and even more Photoshop, so it must work nicely with that too,

6. Do you mind about prediction?

Perhaps, but it must be able to be turned off easily. (I don't tolerate predictions with Photoshop for example.)

7. Other relevant information:

I prefer some laser mouse. Wireless only if it has it's own charge system; I don't want to put loose batteries in them. (You never got enough at home :<)

The scroll must be good, since that is what I will also use a lot.

Drivers must be not-bloat, nor the programs that configure the mouse. I don't want too fancy things there, so I don't want things idling in the system tray to make the mouse work.

1. What's your grip style?

Claw

2. What's your sensitivity?

Play at the highest DPI, mid way on windows.

3. What's your maximum budget?

$100

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Would like at least one side button

5. What games do you play?

FPS's (Battlefield, CoD, etc)

6. Do you mind about prediction?

I'm not even sure I've ever used a mouse with prediction, if it's good for FPS's that's fine, if not then no.

I use a GLASS mousepad (The Ice Pad I-2), so it would need to work well with that.

1. What's your grip style?
Palm (comfortable fit is so important)

2. What's your sensitivity?
High DPI

3. What's your maximum budget?
150$

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Would be nice but not so important

5. What games do you play?
RPG and FPSs (and may be MMORPGs later)

6. Do you mind about prediction?
What's right for better gaming experience?

7. Other relevant information:
I want the best sensor technology, I mean most accurate (it's laser, right?) and need wireless to feel comfortable. I used to have a MS Sidewinder X8 but it's not good, so many issues I had in games. Just checked about Logitech G700, I'm leaning towards it. Should I pull the trigger on G700? Any experiences with G700? smile.gif

Thanks for this thread. I need opinions, I regret buying X8 without research frown.gif Hopefully I will use your valuable opinions here and be happy biggrin.gif Byez...

Edit: Oh btw, what mouse pad you recommend to use with X8 and later with the mouse you suggested?

To ErdincIntel.

Because you want the most accurate mouse so I suggest you can choose any DeathAdder versions(DA with no prediction, no jitter,... but you need to be aware that DeathAdder can get double-click issue if you are a hardcore gamer that clicks the mouse at least one thousand clicks a day). You can buy QCK+ for DeathAdder or you can try 4HD. I am sorry I am not good at choosing good at mousepad.

Please do not ever buy any other Razer mice except these mice are Deathadder, Krait, Copperhead because ... you will know the reason if you want to try.

Wireless is not good for gamers because you can feel the delays sometimes so I suggest you should not try a wireless mouse.

If you want a durable mouse I suggest you can try Logitech's products such as G500-G400 or even G900 but these mouse are not accurate 100% because they have prediction and they use Avergo 9500 (well, this is a long story but you can search in this forum to know what members said about this sensor, except that G400 use optical sensor). However, their precision can be about 95% and you can increase the precision by using hard mousepad and laser mice help you use on common surfaces such as table, paper, glass better than optical mice.

According to my knowledge optical helps you track more precision than laser but a laser sensor have more DPI than optical and it can help you use multiple monitors easier than 1 monitor.

If you want a symmetric mouse, you can try Steelseries such as Kinzu, Xai or Sensei but I afraid I have to tell you that these mouse are not 99%-100% accurate when you compare to DeathAdder or Microsoft IE mice.

That is what I know, hope these information can help you buy a good mouse. If I make mistakes, please forgive me. I am still learning this field.

to YelowSloth.

Because most of the games you play are FPS games and you use Photoshop too. So one of the best mice can suit your needs is any Razer DeathAdder verison because this mouse do not have prediction at 3500DPI versions or you can turn on or off at 1800DPI verions. But I have to say that scroll wheel of any DeathAdder version is usually not good at all, the quality is about average or higher than average little bit.

I am afraid to tell you that most of the good laser mice on market usually have prediction so ... you know because you like to have a good scroll wheel you can consider some mice such as SteelSeries or Logitech but most of these mice usually have prediction.

That is all what I know. Hope this post can help you. If I made mistakes, please forgive me because I am still learning in this field.
