I'm looking for a new mouse, I've been using a Logitech G5 for the last 4 years and I want to try something new.

What's your grip style?
Fingertip mostly. sometimes I switch to something in between fingertip and palm, but rarely.

What's your sensitivity?
Been using 800 DPI since I got the G5, but something a lil faster would help, so 800~1200 would be perfect,

What's your maximum budget?
No more than $80 if possible, unless it's something so good that justifies it.

Do you want additional buttons?
Two side buttons is enough.

What games do you play?
Bit of everything FPS, MMOs, Sandboxes. etc.

Do you mind about prediction?
Does a driverless G5 have it? if not, I don't want it, if yes, then I don't care.

Other relevant information:
I don't want it to be glossy. for obvious reasons.
Black color is a plus.
No bigger than a G5.

The G400 has the exact same shape as the G5 but a little different scroll and button placement

Hey all.

1. What's your grip style?
I use my beloved Evoluent VerticalMouse 4 (wired), so I guess handshake grip is what I'd prefer? But, really, I have no problem using regular Mac mice (which is what they have at all the uni computers).

2. What's your sensitivity?
I prefer to use the 'MD' DPI setting on my VM4, which I think is around the 2000 mark (not completely sure).

3. What's your maximum budget?
$150

4. Do you want additional buttons?
YES! Must have atleast two additional buttons, along with 2 regular buttons and a scroll wheel! (although a 3 regular buttons + scroll wheel design is preferable...but I don't such a mouse exists) MUST! MUST! MUST!

5. What games do you play?
NONE! I am a CAD guy using Alias Automotive 2012, Rhino 5 x64, and SolidWorks 2012 x64.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
WTH is prediction? blinksmiley.gif

7. Other relevant information:
DRIVERLESS/ONBOARD MEMORY (I dunno what the difference is, or which one I'm looking for) IS A MUST, as I need to program the additional buttons to function as 'Shift+Ctrl' and 'Shift+Alt' key combos and use it on any computer without having to install the driver.

The G400 seems to be almost exactly the same with a different sensor, while not a bad thing (the G5 is pretty comfy), I want to try something different as I've been using it for 4 years.

1. What's your grip style?
Claw

2. What's your sensitivity?
Middle, not crazy high but not low either

3. What's your maximum budget?
$100

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes

5. What games do you play?
Starcraft 2, TF2, Counter-Strike

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Yes, zero please

7. Other relevant information:
Currently using a DeathAdder on a QCK mat. I want to try something lighter and smaller that I can move around quicker. Must be wired. 1000Hz polling is necessary too.

I've been looking into a Zowie AM but i'm open to other suggestions.

So I'm currently looking for a new mouse because my 9 month old razer nags epic is having the double click issue on the left button, leaning towards a G500 but not sure yet.

1. What's your grip style?
My fingers rest on the mouse/buttons, not claw I think.

2. What's your sensitivity?
I feel like my dpi is usuall around 1000-2000 depending on the speed/acceleration settings.

3. What's your maximum budget?
No amount is too much!

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes

5. What games do you play?
MMOs and RTS's

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not sure what prediction is frown.gif

7. Other relevant information:
- non glossy if possible
- wired is fine
- hesitant wih razer because my current mouse is messed up
- HUGE deal, I have small hands so a smaller mouse is preferable

I would get a G500 but not sure how the size is compared to a naga epic.

1. What's your grip style?
paw / palm. definitely not claw.

2. What's your sensitivity?
high

3. What's your maximum budget?
aim $40, tops $60

4. Do you want additional buttons?
2 thumb buttons is the very minimum but the more programmable buttons, the merrier (though not when they are in one cluster like the razer naga / corsair m90). non programmable buttons - apart from left / right /scroll wheel ofc - don't matter.

5. What games do you play?
rts, mmo, fps and other assorted three letter genres

6. Do you mind about prediction?
don't mind if it's not too noticeable

7. other information
Not interested in adjustable weight, on the fly DPI switch, on board memory or lights. No wireless. Prefer heavy, optical, simple looking mice. Want to stay away from razer and gigabyte.

8. top 1-2 attributes

I highly value build / material quality but the most important factor is buttons: Their number, layout, responsiveness, customizability and especially their durability.
In the last couple of years I had to discard multiple expensive mice due to microswitch wear. Since my trash can is equally happy with a $10 mouse thrown in it every once in a while I decided to go with something cheaper this time. Here are the candidates so far:

microsoft comfort 6000 - very light, only two extra buttons and not even sure they can be reprogrammed. love the simple steel series like look though.
logitech g400 - seems to be the safest bet even though I don't like its look, the wheel - prefer flat wide tactile ones like on razer mice -, nor the size of the thumb buttons
coolermaster spawn - concerned about grip, have quite long fingers. does anyone with a hybrid grip use this? also read several reports of severe unresolved software issues
roccat kova - g400 cheaper and does more, read multiple reports of poor build quality
coolermaster inferno / sharkoon fireglider / thermaltake black element - all seem fine but these brands are not as well known in this market so no idea if the quality is there

Since I'm ordering online and can't try or even look before buying, would love a recommendation. Thanks!

1. What's your grip style?

A mix between palm grip and fingertip.

2. What's your sensitivity?

Both low (FPS) and high (RTS)

3. What's your maximum budget?

$100 (can go a bit higher)

4. Do you want additional buttons?

2 side buttons are kinda needed (don't need more but wouldn't mind more either).

5. What games do you play?

CS 1.6, Starcraft 2, WoW

6. Do you mind about prediction?

Yes.

7. Other relevant information:

Would like a quality mouse (would not like to buy a new one for a few years). Also my palm can get a bit sweaty (but nothing extraordinary) so if it could damage the mouse that would not be great.

I want a pretty accurate mouse that allows me to play with 1200dpi and has a shape that fits my grip style.

1. What's your grip style? Not sure. Claw / Fingertip? I rest my hand on my mouse sometimes, but I use a lot of finger movement to move my mouse, and wrist motion to move it to the sides. My hands are "normal", not too big or small.

2. What's your sensitivity? 1200 dpi @ 1080p. I've seen several mice that have very limiting dpi options, and I'd really like to stick with 1200 dpi.

3. What's your maximum budget? Don't care (much).

4. Do you want additional buttons? I don't mind them. But unless they are very reliable (unlike my Lachesis, which has terrible additional buttons), I probably won't use them either.

5. What games do you play? Mostly RTS - sc2 and wc3. I also enjoy playing osu! quite a bit, and sometimes FPS but I'm not a very skilled FPS player tbh.

6. Do you mind about prediction? I want my mouse to be as accurate as possible. So yes, I guess?


I'd rather avoid mice with acceleration issues or anything along these lines unless I have no other good option. It's no good though if I can't play with 1200 dpi or if the shape is not suitable, which is why I'm having a hard time choosing a new mouse.

I've heard some nice things about the Deathadder, but it's probably too big for my grip. The g9x looks pretty nice and if it weren't for the positive acceleration issue that I heard about, I'd most likely not be here. The Xai also seems to have acceleration issues. G400 - only good for palming? The Abyssus and CM Storm Spawn don't allow me to play with 1200 dpi. Any suggestions?

EDIT: Mouse pad advice is welcome too! I had a Destructor but my mouse would glide too much on it, and I guess I'm more interested in accuracy. To make matters worse, my pad would get dirty so fast, if I rubbed it dirt would come off of it. It began to feel "slower" than when I first got it too fast though (even though I didn't like that much glide), not a durable pad in the slightest. So if there's anything out there that works well with the mouse I pick, favors accuracy over excessive gliding, and works better than a table for at the very least 6 months or something, I'd really like to know about it. When your table > your mouse pad, there's something really wrong with the pad imo and I don't want to make the same mistake twice!
