post #271 of 6207
Mouse Buttons Hitting Each Other-problem has been fixed already. I think AM would be fine on your 9HD.

Notice that Zowie AM is significantly smaller than your Xai.

What about Sensei [RAW]?

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.

The CPI steps of the AM (480ish, 1200ish and 2300) make it suitable for a variety of sensitivities, provided you can adjust it in-game.

As stated before, the overlapping buttons issue was resolved quite fast from Zowie.

Considering those points, the AM is a potential candidate if you don't mind stiffer buttons than most mice have.

You could also check Abyssus, depending on the surface you're using.

I watched some video reviews and read what you have posted, I think I'm going to go with the Zowie am. I have one final question, and that is does the AM have prediction? I just can't deal with steelseries again, I haven't had one piece of equipment that has lastest longer than 2 years except my mouse pad, which I love. (It just looks queer with their logo everywhere on it). Thank you so much for your knowledge, and I have one more challenge:

I want to buy my father a mouse, he has been using the same mouse since 2003 I think, his right click hasn't worked in 2 years and he has pieces of scotch tape everywhere. So here is his stats:

1. What's your grip style?
palm
2. What's your sensitivity?
doesn't matter
3. What's your maximum budget?
up to $100
4. Do you want additional buttons?
not needed
5. What games do you play?
none. He works in ms office a lot. Emails, web, excel. He is on the computer the whole day.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Doesn't matter in his case
7. Other relevant information:
He currently is using a giveaway tiny mouse pad which has the corners cut off because it caught his mouse. The pad is almost the same size as the mouse at this point, so a new pad would be nice. Nothing extremely fancy since he is just works and doesn't game. Also nothing that is bright green tongue.gif Oh and wireless is a plus for him

His current mouse:

I saw the Logitech Perfomance Mouse MX, seems like a large palm mouse. Its also a $100. More than I payed for my xai /shrug http://www.logitech.com/en-us/mice-pointers/mice/performance-mouse-mx If anyone has any expirence in this type of mouse, then please help.

Zowie AM has no prediction. In fact, the tracking quality of the mouse is very good in all aspects but some minor jitter at 2300CPI.

As for your father, if he's using a wireless, you might be looking at another wireless or a mouse with a very nimble cord.

Since he ain't going to play many games (I presume), wireless could be an interesting (and probably preferrable) option, so I would recommend you to check those :

G700
Razer Mamba

Even though the one you posted is an excellent choice aswell wink.gif

Alright, I think I made up my own mind and am going with the Logitech MX. I bought a logitech VX for my laptop in 2006 when they first came out and it works great to this day. If a mouse can make it through my college and early professional days and still work great, I will reinvest to its newer larger brother. I have no idea what type of sensor this thing uses and if I should purchase cloth, plastic, glass or aluminum pad. If I don't buy him something he will use this mouse on a scrappy POS and I refuse such nonsense. I was thinking just a simple QCK.

It has a Darkfield sensor, which is not very known for it's gaming capabilites, so it didn't get much interest around here.

However, the sensor was designed to track on pretty much any surface, so presumably any mouse surface might do.

If your parent is working on a bureau and wants something stylish for when people comes, you might wanna check one of those safety-glass SteelSeries Experience mousepads, they look really good, stylish and professional.

If he works at a more private area, any comfortable mousepad will do for him. Even if being redundant, I'll say it again : mind that it is comfortable wink.gif

You could also get him a fancy leather pad for comfort.

Yes, I only need at least two.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not sure if it will screw up my aim, but if it does, yes.

7. Other relevant information:
Preferably I like a wired mouse and my hands are large by the way.

1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip
2. What's your sensitivity?
Medium
3. What's your maximum budget?
None
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Preferably, I currently use a cheapo logitech, and it's dying so I figured I'd upgrade.
5. What games do you play?
WoW, SWTOR, Minecraft, FPS, everything, really
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not really, just not so much that it's a huge difference
7. Other info:
I've always just used $5 walmart mice, and I think it's time for an upgrade, as I'm getting more and more into PC gaming (been a 360 advocate for years)
post #280 of 6207

1. What's your grip style?

Palm grip


2. What's your sensitivity?

Usually use default or medium

3. What's your maximum budget?

Don't want to go anywhere above $80


4. Do you want additional buttons?
Just at least 1 or 2 buttons on the left for Teamspeak 3/Ventrilo hotkey

5. What games do you play?
FPS, TPS, Action-MMORPG such as APB: Reloaded, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Planetside 2, Continent of the Ninth, planning on playing Mercenary Ops and GunZ 2

6. Do you mind about prediction?

Yes, I don't want prediction if it will hinder my aim.


7. Other relevant information:
Some mouses I've looked at that I really liked are the ROCCAT Kone+ and Tt eSports Theron. I want a medium sized mouse similar to those with ergonomics for the right hand, the way it indents on the left side for your thumb, but I do not want a thumb rest like the G500 or any kind of finger rest for the pinky. I also don't want an awkward and long mouse like the Deathadder or Mamba. I want some type of rubberized grip to the mouse. I will probably be using 1600 DPI, so DPI shouldn't be an issue. I'm going to use the mouse on a black mousepad for now, but I will probably get a Qck Steelseries mousepad. I don't like the smooth top/back like the g500 has. Being able to have the color blue for a LED would be very nice. Optical or laser doesn't really matter to me. The mouse also needs to either be around 130g or have adjustable weights. The overly customizable or whatever mouses like the RAT or has a thumb grip that just pops out like that looks awful to me. Wired is a 100% must to me as well.

 

Pretty long, but wanted to be as descriptive as possible, thanks in advanced to anybody that helps.
