post #211 of 6207
1. What's your grip style?
I usually just adjust to whatever mouse I'm using.

2. What's your sensitivity?
Depends on the mouse so as long as I can adjust it I'm good

3. What's your maximum budget?
Not sure yet so just suggest what best matches my needs but most likely it will be $80

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes

5. What games do you play?
All kinds but lots of D3 and TL2 when it comes out

6. Do you mind about prediction?
no

7. Other relevant information:
I go through mice rather quickly and need one that is built well and will not have the buttons go bad after 7 months. No Razer mice either since the last 2 I had from them lasted less than 8 months and not happy about the build quality. I like using my current cloth pad so it needs to track ok on cloth. Currently using a g400 but the buttons are starting to go out thanks to D3.

@lognoronon: Get another g400, you wont get better switches (its the same on like every mouse anyway, only a few are using stiffer ones then the omron and those are not for you).
Of course you can buy any mouse you feel good with, most are in your budget and since you dont care about the sensor you can get whatever mouse you want.
The best advice i can give you for D3 though is: Learn to play it right, dont click all the time but hold the buttons. youy will attack as fast and you can play a lot longer. Trust me, i played so much D2 and after 2years i tried to use the back then new thing to hold for continious attacking:D

@pruik6: the wannabe highend mice with steel and **** have a bad sensor or a sensor with at least minor flaws.
So you can either get some Spawn or Abyssus which botha re the best mice for your gripping style or you wait and hope that stuff like Taipan or some other totally overpriced mice get sensor/firmware that dont ruin it.

I wouldv recommended the Zowie AM but it has buttons that really annoy if you fingertip grp it, but you can try (if u can try it in a shop)the mico if you like the click, i dont.

Good low LOD.
you can tapefix any optical mouse for sick low LOD, i have my deathadder that low that it doenst even track on hard mats anymore(and if i need it higher i change the tape:D).
((of course theres the WMO...u say u want 400dpi with light mice there you go, its cheap and awesome:D)´

If you really dont want the best hardware you can get but the best shell with some random sensor (with prediction) go to the stores and buy whatever you like the feel the most, most mice have above 2m/s perfect control and you will never need more for rts, check out the Sc2 pros they play from cheap korean mice up to **** like sensei.

I am currently using a Steelseries Ikari. I am wanting something with possibly a little more weight and higher dpi. Also I was looking for
something to use with Diablo 3 (Marco Buttons).

I use a palm grip but am not against switching if a mous has better performance. My
budget is from up to $109.99

I have been looking at the Sensei, Razer Naga, Logitecj G9x, Roccat
Kone+ and a few others. I want something that is pretty durable and has good
drivers.

Hello!

I've been going through a bunch of cheap mice that have been laying around in my house, and none of them are very comfortable, and the only one that is comfortable, does not have enough buttons on it

So I've decided that instead of just finding some random mouse and having an uncomfortable hand, It'd be better for me to just invest in a good mouse
I'm not entirely sure of all of the details, or what I like, but I'll give as best of a response as I can

1. What's your grip style?
I believe my grip style is Palm or Fingertip, but definitely not Claw

I think I may prefer fingertip so my palm doesn't get as sweaty, but I don't think I'd mind that much for palm

2. What's your sensitivity?
I'm not sure how to answer this one, Medium I guess?
I'm not a fan of fps games, so I don't think I need high sensitivity?

3. What's your maximum budget?
I would prefer something around the $50 section, but I would also consider somewhere around $80 too

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes, I really like the side buttons, at least two side buttons would be good, but I think I would want 4 in total, more is okay, but nothing too extreme like 12 buttons on one side
two on each side would be great

5. What games do you play?
I'm playing Diablo 3 until Guild Wars 2 comes out
I don't really play fps games

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I tried reading up on this, and I'm not entirely sure what it is, but from what I think, I don't mind prediction

7. Other relevant information:
I'm also trying to get a new keyboard too, so if the mouse can be paired up with a keyboard, that would be an extra plus
I don't mind wireless either, and it would make things more convieniant, as I don't really have a proper desk or permanent set up for my computer
Also, I don't like glossy surfaces of mice, they seem to get really nasty after a few days of use, so I'd really like a mouse that doesn't get dirty easily
I think rubberized surfaces are also bad. Rubber and sweat don't really go well with each other

I'm right handed if that is of any importance

As a short summary of the relevant information:
No Glossy
No Rubbery
Included Keyboard nice
Wireless okay
Nothing that gets dirty easily

Thank You in advance!

Low sens means your mouse cursor moves slow and you have to move your mouse more to move 180°. Like that you can aim better.
Sens hasnt that muhc to do with dpi/cpi, with 1800dpi you can easily play high sense, meaning you move your mouse only like 1cm in a square.

If u really dont mind prediction the G500 is nice, i also played and still play sometimes mmo with it, lots of nice buttons and it really doesnt get dirty, at least less then other mice.
IF you want a good sensor g400, better sensor but less buttons.

Acceleration means that if you move your mouse 5cm in one speed it wont move the cursor the same distance with more or less speed. Its bad for muscle memory thats why good players dont want it.
Acceleration as a flaw is if its built into the sensor, most if not all laser mice have it, some opticals are nice and dont have it.
You can add accerelation easily on optical mice, e.g. if you need it for some weapons in quake live but you cannot take it away from laser mice=>thats the problem.

keyboard:theres not that many differences in your budget, get or keep any rubberdome you feel comfy with, if you find some old g11(with many macro buttons) for a few bucks thats great, imo they are built better then the new g11/g15 and up.

PTE is accel free inherently. Older cmos based Lasers are also accel free.

Thanks for you input and explanations!

I feel like acceleration would get confusing then

I'm a little confused by what you are saying here though, about the difference in my budget?

I think rubberdomes are a type of keyboard, right?

I wouldnt mind spending 100 for a keyboard and a mouse package thing?

I saw that theres a deal for a g500 on newegg right now, Its going for 50, but I was wondering if there would be other options too

I really like steelseries, but their mice and keyboards are pretty expensive

Rubber domes are your basic keyboards you would buy, like a microsoft or dell keyboard. I refers to the rubber dome beneath the key that you have to push down to activate the key. Mechanical keyboards have switches instead of the rubber dome. Guide here if you want to read into it a little more.

Unfortunately the price tag reflects the quality of the product, especially when it is still a newer product and isn't on sale. I've been using the Naga Hex when playing Diablo 3 and the GW2 beta, because it has 6 buttons on the left side for the abilities. I'm not a fan of the placement for the back & forward buttons for browsing the internet, but it is still a nice mouse even if it is glossy. In my experience, every mouse shows the mess our hands leave behind. Our hands are disgusting things and using your mouse a lot will show it through having dirt, dried sweat, and dead skin on it. So if you're worried about a certain surface getting dirty just clean it once in a while, and be more concerned about which surface feels better to you.

The g500 is a good mouse and I used mine for a long time, think it's in my closet somewhere collecting dust now. If you have small hands like me it won't be incredibly comfortable however. It is a large mouse and made more for a palm grip than fingertip/fingertip hybrid. This requires you to place your palm in a fairly determined spot and if your hand isn't large enough, you have to move your hand up the mouse slightly, defeating its ergo design and creates some slight discomfort. I used it for almost a year if not over a year and still liked it enough to avoid spending unnecessary money on another since I was still in college. Since then I've used the Zowie EC2, G9x, Naga Hex, Zowie AM and others. My favorites to date are the Hex and Zowie AM, the AM being my favorite of the two.

if your budget is 80$ you can get the g400 for 40 and a nice keyboard for like 20$.
If you want it mechanical your above 100$, the mechanical keyboards start at like 80$ unless you get a g80-3000 for a good price but im not sure if it fits what you want optically..

You can find mechanicals on geekhack.org being sold for less than $100 now and again. Just have to look for sales online as well too.
