[Official] The Mouse Suggestion Thread - Page 29

post #281 of 3975
1. What's your grip style?
Palm

2. What's your sensitivity?
My hand isn't the steadiest, so i have to go for the low side otherwise the mouse wiggles everywhere

3. What's your maximum budget?
$100

4. Do you want additional buttons?
I gotta have that back button!

5. What games do you play?
Skyrim, Fallout, Skyrim, Battlefield, Skyrim. Starcraft and Skyrim sometimes too.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Uh. no?

7. Other relevant information:
-I hate wires (clutter drives me nuts, and I need all the space on the desk for my clutter!) ergo wireless is mandatory.
-I don't like to move my hand around much, ergo a good shape for my right hand.
-I have a very large hand, ergo small mice are a NO NO.
-I don't like the gaming-style stuff. The cheap and bulky is gross to me, so I avoid the ones that look like they were put together with random pieces of plastic.


With all of this in mind, I ended up with the Logitech 570 Wireless Trackball Mouse. It's AMAZING. I never had a trackball mouse, but this thing is fantastic. I had a lenovo laptop and became addicted to the red clit mouse in the keyboard, so having a mouse that I could use with my thumb for similarity was a welcome familiarity. I really like this mouse because of it's comfort, the two side buttons (which I can customize in games) and the design is completely smooth. And wireless smile.gif. And I can use it anywhere, on a pillow, my leg, the desk, without a mouse pad or even a flat surface!

I use it for web surfing, but more importantly CAD work and coding. Not much excel work or other stuff that requires horizontal scrolling, especially since I have three monitors, so a basic scroll was fine too.

It works well for gaming, but it wouldn't work well for the BF/MW3 gamer who needs a perfect accuracy. I've heard rumors of it being 800 dpi, but other reviews have it at 1600+. all I know is that it isn't some 6000 dpi razer mouse.

It's a different consideration from the normal 'mouse' but it was perfect for me. I've had it for about two years, and I plan on having it for a long time! especially since I haven't changed the batteries on it yet.

1. What's your grip style?

Claw during gaming, palm/claw for casual browsing

2. What's your sensitivity?

Looooow. 400/800DPI, lowest settings in game

3. What's your maximum budget?

70ish, somewhat flexible

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Yes, two on the side are a must

5. What games do you play?

FPS games. TF2 and some CS, a little Starcraft 2, mostly worried about FPS performance

6. Do you mind about prediction?

I've had it on all my previous mice, but would rather not having it from now on. No angle snapping, no hardware acceleration.

7. Other relevant information:

I have used NOTHING but the classic Logitech MX510/518/G400 shape for almost 7-9 years, so I am very used to it. I am on edge about switching to a new shape, but the low quality of the recent G400s give me little choice.

I've had some interest in the CM Storm Sentinel Advance II because of its new sensor, but have never used a laser mouse before. At my low dpi settings from what I can see there are no acceleration or angle snapping issues, unless I'm mistaken? Also open to other suggestions.

HALP.

The Naga Hex is smaller than the Deathadder and has 6 additional buttons on the left and the 2 forward and back buttons below the scroll wheel. It was made for games like LoL if you're willing to learn to use the buttons. I'm too engrained in how I play LoL to use them, but I used the buttons in D3 and use them in GW2. There's also the Cyborg MMO but that takes some getting used to and adjustments. Still figuring out how best to adjust my Cyborg for my hand to give it a fair look.

To avoid changing the shape on you too much, you could look at the G9x or some of the Cyborg mice. I don't know too much about larger mice but they might be worth a look.

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.

1. What's your grip style?

Claw or fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?

Medium to low

3. What's your maximum budget?

Don't have one as long as the mouse is worth it

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Have to have side buttons on left side but none on right. Don't want to press the right side buttons by accident

5. What games do you play?

Pretty much 1st/3rd person only, no RTS

6. Do you mind about prediction?

No prediction and no acceleration

7. Other relevant information:

Want an optical mouse that fits this criteria with an updated sensor that isnt small and can change the sensitivity on the fly and has GOOD build quality.

Everytime I think I find a mouse with a good build the sensor sucks and vice versa or theres no sensitivity adjustment and limited software etc.

Hey guys
I am feeling urges to upgrade my mouse as it is easily the oldest part in my system, the famous Intellimouse


1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?
I think my current mouse is 400DPI

3. What's your maximum budget?
50 euroes

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Maybe 1 or 2, not really important.

5. What games do you play?
Mainly League of Legends

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Dunno? I like how my Intellimouse performs, I'm not sure if it uses prediction.

7. Other relevant information:
I have very sweaty hands frown.gif
I prefer mice with cords. Don't like replacing batteries, and batteries usually lose their charge over time (I want my new mouse to last many more years).

I saw the Deathadder thread, and it looks nice (as in a similar shape to my current mouse), however I understand that it gets soggy with sweat? Sounds gross.

i misread the additional buttons as number of buttons, i only need 2 additional ones. would that change the recommendations?
