Palm and sometime Fingertip

$50-$100
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Doesn't really matter.
5. What games do you play?
Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Diablo 3, League of Legends (More of an FPS gamer)
6. Do you mind about prediction?
I'd rather not have it or the option to turn it off.
7. Other relevant information:
I'm coming from an MX518, which I liked but it never tracked quite as well as I would have liked.
Mouse Pad:
8. Hard or cloth?
I'd say hard because I don't think cloth tracks as well.
9. Rough or smooth?
Doesn't matter, whatever tracks better.
10. Which size approximately?
Medium to Large.
11. What's your maximum budget?
$30 range.

This is what I use for a mousepad when I'm not using my cloth one.

I have a mouse grip similar to yours and use the Naga Hex for playing Diablo 3, and maybe GW2 when that is out of beta. I also use the Zowie AM, which I prefer but it doesn't have the buttons the Naga does.

What about the Zowie Gear EC2 eVo? Reviews for that seem good. How does it compare to the Mionix Naos or the G400?
What kind of pad would be good for it?
post #233 of 6207
Lo NateZ28,

Since all the mice you said are optical, i think they will track well on cloth pads (especially dark ones), but i guess someone with more experience could give his knowledge smile.gif
As for Zowie EC2 evo, from what i read, it's almost the same size as the intellimouse 1.1, but with side buttons. (been reading also some scroll problems....)
Mionix Naos? Wich one? the optical one? i think it has prediction (same optical sensor as the ikari optical?)
Well G400 it's a great mouse, it tracks very well and it's comfortable (if you get used to it's grip.....)
Hope i helped you..

Optical or laser doesn't really matter to me. More people seem to recommend optical for some reason. So you think the G400 is the best of that bunch?
Better than the G500?
post #235 of 6207
People recommed optical over laser, because optical seems to track better on any surface than laser ofc there are exceptions.... Also there's the acceleration issue on certain mouse, like G500 you mentioned and laser sensors are more sensible to dust (other points i'll leave for people with more experience). Some can seei it, some don't, some says it only can be seen on very low sensitivity's (well i'm a medium sensitivity player i think - entire normal qck for 360º, and still i couldn't put the crosshair from the starting point, it would go always for right or left...). From my point of view G400 it's the best price\quality (just make sure you get one without prediction) with one of the "best" (not newer) sensor on the market, without any serious problems as described..

So how do I be sure I get the "best" sensor if it's not in the newest models?
post #237 of 6207
The newer g400 comes with no prediction, he meant that the sensor in itself is not new. It's actually almost impossible to get an old g400 now in stores that actually have decent sales.

Gotchya.
So cloth is better for optical? What pad would you guys recommend for the G400?
post #239 of 6207
Any black cloth mousepad, for example: Qck line of mouse mats, Goliathus line of mouse mats, Xtrac cloth mousemats and Artisan mousemats. (and ofcourse many, many more.)

1. What's your grip style?
Claw - I have medium sized hands

2. What's your sensitivity?
Very high - need a mouse with 3k+ dpi

3. What's your maximum budget?
~$80, willing to go higher if someone can justify higher though.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Not needed, although 2 would be nice.

5. What games do you play?
RTS(sc2) is my primary game, casual FPS, casual MMO, d3

6. Do you mind about prediction?
A mouse fitting my hand properly is more important than no prediction, but less is obviously better.

7. Other relevant information:
I really want a very light mouse. A lot of the mouse that seem right for claw seem very big and heavy, or else uncomfortable. The upcoming Razer Taipan kind interests me, but I'm afraid its sensor is going to be horrible, and the mouse seems ever so slightly on the thin end.

The common CM Spawn response really appeals to me as far as shape goes, but it seems like it would be a heavy mouse, which I'm trying to shy away from if possible. Honestly a mouse in this shape but as light as possible would be nice, if one exists, unless I am overestimating how heavy it is?

I currently play on a Steelseries QCK mouse pad that has some barbarion graphics on it, but I'm willing to buy a new pad if a mouse is picky about the pad its on in order to have a good mouse.

Really never worried about mice before because I always said it doesn't really matter, but recently I have been getting uncomfortable while playing so I want a mouse that actually fits what I use it for. Other mice I have used was the original wow gaming mouse, and the Razer Mamba, which I received as a gift. The Mamba is far to heavy, even using it in wired mode with the battery taken out of it. The shape of it obviously isn't optimal either.

I really dislike jittery mice.

pretty sure that covers it all, thanks in advance for any help/advice! smile.gif
