1200dpi is what I'm using now but I'm fine with anything.
3. What's your maximum budget?
100USD
4. Do you want additional buttons?
My current mouse has none so its not a big deal for me.
5. What games do you play?
Lol, Minecraft, DD, D3, L4D2, and many RTS titles.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
I'd rather not have it.
7. Other relevant information:
I've used and liked ambidextrous mice in the past so I'm fine with them (right handed) and no glossy finish my current mouse has it and just crap that you didn't even know was on your hands gets on the mouse and I keep clean while at my desk. Also a final side note my current mouse is a bit too small so I'd like something with a good size and medium weight to it.

Well for palm ambidextrous, you could go for the zowie am, razer deathadder, Tt eSports Saphira. And if not ambidextrous logitech g400, mionix 3200 al good for palm grip. I guess the ambidextrous are a bit smaller because they are narrow on both size mabay if you want a bigger mouse look into the mionix 3200 and if you dont mind prediction you could aswell look into the naos 5000.

100$
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes i play a lot of Dota 2 and also getting ready for guildwars 2 and plan to map all skills to my mouse
in short yes i need 10+
5. What games do you play?
Dota 2 , GuildWars 2, FPS
6. Do you mind about prediction?
No
7. Other relevant information:
I have A logitech G9x atm and love it, just lacks buttons.. was thinking the Corsair M90 or the Razer naga orr the new Logitch G600

Button wise you really only have the Naga, the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse or M90 for options, as far as I know. You can set sensitivity on them all as I recall as well. The G600 looks similar in shape to the G9x, but a little more ergonomic. The Naga may be a little too slim for you but you'd want to look at the specs in comparison to the G9x to find out exactly.

mix of palm and fingertip (on my current deathadder, I place the fingertips on the buttons and the hand doesn't contact everywhere)
tendency goes towards fingertip over time
2. What's your sensitivity?
1800dpi
3. What's your maximum budget?
40-50€ ->50-63$
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes, at least one side button would be nice (browser back)
5. What games do you play?
at the moment vindictus (3rd person, but you control the movement,camera,aim with the mouse)
Assasin's Creed, HL2, Mirrors Edge, plus other MMOs
6. Do you mind about prediction?
yeah, I don't like it. (I doesn't have it on my Deathadder now)
7. Other relevant information:
The LOD is not that critical, my DA has 2-3 CDs (2 CDs works just fine, but 3 CDs it fails on the Destructor mouspad) and it doesn't bother me.
The main reason to switch my Deathadder, besides that it is 25 month old and dirty, is that I want something that is flatter. My Grip changes somehow from palm to fingertip, as mentioned above. So that's why I search something that isn't high as the DA.
A nice addition would be a non-braided cord, since a braided one scrapes at the edge of my desk and produces noise and slow-downs.
But a braided is no dealbreaker.
I tried to see a CM Storm spawn in real life, but those 2 electronic stores I visited didn't have it (only the G400, Abyssus, Savu, Sensei)
I don't know if that is the correct shape for me and the Standby-Bug, high-CPU usage I read about put me a bit away.
The Steelseries Kana would be nice, just from reading the shape measurements and it has 1 button on each side. But the sensor shall be meh.
The Zowie AM looks to be quite small in width an more expensive.
The Abyssus I tried wasn't bad, I liked it really but it has no additional buttons.

I really like the Zowie AM as I have a similar grip to yours and like how flat it is. I use the Naga Hex as well because it has 6 buttons, but it is definitely not as comfortable. If you are willing to pay more for the Zowie AM I would recommend it.

Medium to High
3. What's your maximum budget?
$45
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Does not matter
5. What games do you play?
SC2 only
6. Do you mind angle snapping?
Not sure
7. Other relevant information:
Hand size is Small-Medium (18.4cm tip of middle finger to end of palm, and 8.89cm palm width) so I was looking at smaller mice. I have it narrowed down to 2 or 3 that I am really considering. The main mice I am trying to decide between is the StealSeries Kinzu v2 Pro or maybe the CM Storm Spawn. I really like the Kinzu v2 pro but have read bad things about the tracker, which has caused me to be hesitant in my purchase of it. I like the CM Storm Spawn but I'm not sure how it's shape would feel, as I have read that it's a claw grip mouse and it's different than the regular ambidextrous mouse I currently use (UVDEL1 model). Another mouse that I have considered is the Razer Abyssus, but I have heard mixed reviews about Razer products and the blue LED light on the back always being on even when your PC is in sleep mode is a deal breaker for me. So that pretty much leaves me with the CM Storm Spawn with an Amazon price of $35 vs. the SteelSeries v2 Pro with an Amazon price of $45. Your suggestions are welcome and if you have other mice in my price range that you think I should consider, please feel free to add. This is my first time buying a high performance mouse so all input is appreciated. Thanks

The Steelseries Kana might be a decent fit for you, being an ambidextrous mouse as well and sized to be useable by all 3 grip styles. I myself really like the Zowie AM however if considering an ambi mouse, although it is ~$60 so you would need to save a little more for it. There is also the Abyssus as mentioned.

Fingertip or Claw grip, use and swap between both frequently.
2. What's your sensitivity?
Medium to High DPI, I can use anything from 1800 to 3500 comfortably.
3. What's your maximum budget?
$80
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Having one or two on the left side would be awesome (for Dota items)
5. What games do you play?
HoN, Dota 2, LoL, Guild Wars 2, Counter-Strike: GO/Source, Diablo III.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
I'd much prefer no prediction.
7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.
some examples: LOD, ambidextrous shape, weight, wireless, non-braided cord, glossy finish, button activation force, driverless, onboard memory, etc
The main thing for me is a perfect sensor, I just want it to be me and the computer with nothing in between if that was possible! As long as it fits my hand and has a side button or two (and is wired) it would be fine with me.
Lower LOD the better, As long as it fits my right hand it's fine! Weight is no issue, used both low weight and high weight mice, I'd prefer a non-braided cord, but as long as it's not too irritating it's fine. I prefer matte finishes since I have rather sweaty hands and don't want to lose grip on glossy mice. Activation force would hopefully be similar to the CM Spawn, on the lower end since I'm used to Omron switches. Drivers/non driver/ non software doesn't matter to me, and onboard memory doesn't matter.
I've been looking particularly at replacing my CM Storm Spawn (the paint on the outside is peeling away rapidly now that there's a gaping hole in it after 6 months. I've been gazing at the Zowie AM/EC EvO (what's the difference between 1 and 2 anyways?) and the DotA version of Steelseries Kana since it has the rubberized cord. Almost all mice work perfectly fine with me as long as they don't have a laser sensor (urgh!) and aren't suitable for only palm grippers (Deathadder). My hand is about average with slightly larger than average fingers, which is why I've always liked fingertip/claw grip!
Thanks so much in advance!

As I recall, the only difference between the EC eVo 1 & 2 is the size. The 2 looks for more like a claw grip while the 1 is more of a fingertip. The AM is a great mouse as well. Don't think you could go wrong with any of these.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Just want a good mouse, 80-100 doesn't matter
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Not a huge downside. I haven't had extra buttons other than the 2 side buttons, so I'm not attached to them.
5. What games do you play?
Everything, huge pc gamer. MMOs, shooters, and minecraft most. Then fill it in with everything else.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
I don't know specifically what this is.
7. Other relevant information:
I currently use a Steelseries Xai, right click doesn't work correctly and I fear being mouseless if I take her apart. I do have a 9HD mousepad which I spent a chuck of change on, so something that worked well on this type of pad would be a plus.

I've used the Naga Molten, Naga Hex, G9x, Zowie AM and Zowie EC2 on this mouse pad and all have worked just fine. So the choice is really up to you here.

1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip.
2. What's your sensitivity?
Around 3000 DPI, but 4000 would be nice.
3. What's your maximum budget?
50-55 GBP
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Might be a nice addition, but I am not too fussed.
5. What games do you play?
CoD, Minecraft, Diablo III
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Yes, I would not like to have it.
post #265 of 6207
1. What's your grip style?
Claw when gaming, palm when not.
2. What's your sensitivity?
Any.
3. What's your maximum budget?
$80
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Just two side buttons would be great.
5. What games do you play?
Mostly FPS, some Skyrim, GW2. I do not play any RTS.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
No.
7. Other relevant information:
I really like how the Razer Lachesis forces my hand into a claw position, but I hate how there is no place to put my ring finger and pinky. I also like the way it clicks tongue.gif however, I prefer ergonomic mice. I'm looking at the DeathAdder and CM Storm Spawn, but neither seem perfect (DA is meant for palm, Spawn is small and ugly). I suppose I could claw a DA if there are no other options.

Mice I have tried:
Logitech G400 - uncomfortable
Razer Lachesis - nowhere to put ring finger and pinky

post #266 of 6207
1. What's your grip style?
Palm for basic use and fingerip for gaming

2. What's your sensitivity?
I don't know. I've never owned a gaming mouse before, so anything that would allow me to be versatile and find my sweet spot would be nice.

3. What's your maximum budget?
$100

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Sure, but Not a lot. I don't play MMO's.

5. What games do you play?
Shooters and Skyrim.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Yes, since I mostly play as a sniper in games, I would like to be able to line up the head shots manually without trouble. Please no prediction, or at least drivers that let me turn it off.

7. Other relevant information:
Like I said, I mostly play as a sniper or some sort of range gunner, and I mostly play FPS, so I like to have sensetivity. I like a mouse that is fast though, and can react quickyl, but also track slow so I can line up sniped headshots and not worry about my shaky hands throwing me off, as my hands are very shaky which can be annoying when using a mouse. I also have small hands.

I was thinking of going with a Corsair m60, but please give any suggestions.



Is it ok if I post a mousepad suggestion thing in this forum too? If not mods, just message me and I will clean my post.


1. Hard or cloth?
Whatever works better with the mouse that another forum member suggests for my text above

2. Rough or smooth?
Smooth

3. Which size approximately?
Small to medium. Something I can put right next to my keyboard on my keyboard tray and not worry about it sagging off.

4. What's your maximum budget?

None.
post #267 of 6207
1. What's your grip style?

So many mouse will work on this pad, which is sweet. So back to the question of...

Which mouse is best for me.
1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip
JPtIz.jpg
2. What's your sensitivity?
I use a lower sensitivity on shooters, around 500dpi. On Skyrim I know I boost it up to 900dpi. When I'm browsing the computer not playing a game, I use the 900dpi.

I was looking at the Zowie AM, but have read its better for high dpi players and on the video review saw the right and left buttons hit each other in shooters, which I play a lot of. Not that there is a perfect mouse.
