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.

I actually still have a G5 laying around and that was a great mouse. If you liked the rubber feel of the G5 I would suggest the Mionix Naos or Zowie AM. The Mionix is of a similar size and shape. I'm assuming you have bigger hands if you are using a fingertip grip on a G5. If I'm wrong, then the Zowie AM may fit you a little better.

Both mice have 2 side buttons and are under you price req. The Zowie is black and the Mionix I got was grey, but you can get a black one.

The G400 is also an option as mentioned by NuFon, but it is glossy which you don't want.

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.

If you are comfortable with any mouse, there are plenty of suggestions. But for most mice these days, in order to program the buttons to perform functions for you you'll have to install their software. Examples of this are the G9x, G500, Deathadder, Cyborg MMO or RAT 7, Mionix Naos, etc. If you're willing to deal with that take your pick from any of those mice.

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.

Zowie AM or Naga Hex would work for ya. So take your pick from rubber or glossy tongue.gif

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.

It sounds like you have hands similar to mine and that you seem to palm the Naga. The G500 is much larger in length than the Naga, so I wouldn't recommend that. If you rest your entire hand on the mouse it would be a palm grip, and the Mionix Naos would suit you quite nicely, or you can try the Zowie AM. If these don't suit you, you can try the Logitech G9x or Naga Hex.

Will get to more suggestions soon. Write responses as time allows tongue.gif

I'll give it a look, thanks thumb.gif
Any other suggestions?

3. What's your maximum budget?
$30
:
7. Other relevant information

Needs to be wired, USB, must be resistant to the common mouse "double-click in a single-slick" problem.

I'm pretty much done buying $8 computer mice. All suffered from single-double click. I just need a decent mouse under $30 that will last me at least a few years. Does not need to be a gaming mouse.

Since my old Logitech G9 is looking rather dated and the scroll wheel's rubber grip is damaged, I have decided to scout out my options if ever I get the money for a replacement.


1. What's your grip style?

I am between the palm and claw style, with the latter being used whenever games get hectic.


2. What's your sensitivity?

Coming from the G9, I am comfortable with 1600-2000 DPI.


3. What's your maximum budget?

Around $50 to $60, but I can stretch to as much as $80 if you guys can make a solid case for a particular mouse.


4. Do you want additional buttons?

Just thumb buttons are enough for me.


5. What games do you play?

A little bit of everything, but mainly FPS and RTS like Battlefield 3, Team Fortress 2 and Command and Conquer. MOBA-style games like DOTA 2 are also my thing.


6. Do you mind about prediction?

I don't mind.


7. Other relevant information:

Preferably something that has configurable LED colors or at least comes with red to match my current setup color scheme.
My hands are generally big, so something wide or large will be nice. I don't mind if it's small though as long as the grip is comfortable.


Thanks guys. biggrin.gif

1. What's your grip style?
I am between fingertip and claw style. I push the mouse with my thumb, ring, and pinkie fingers depends on the direction which one I use. The back of my palm does rest on the mouse pad. Right handed

2. What's your sensitivity?
Medium, I think. 4-5 inches to go 360º because I like to move 1" to turn 90º and 2" to turn 180º. I never really do 360s

3. What's your maximum budget?
budget < $100

4. Do you want additional buttons?
a thumb button and the DPI buttons behind the wheel is cool.

5. What games do you play?
I love all Bethesda Games, Paradox Games, Dragon Age 1, CoD, BF3, TF2, LFD2, ME3, ME2, ME1, Two Worlds, Torchlight, Asheron's Call, Space Chem, Spiderweb Games, and point and click adventures.

I don't do much RTS outside of 4x (I like Sins of a Sola Empire)

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I want to try this out. I think I might need it.

7. Other relevant information:

I will soon be gaming on a Crossover 27Q. 2560 x 1440 monitor.
I would like a weighty mouse, but smoooth scrolling. (probably a mouse pad thing)
I'm also heavy handed, I have big hands. I'm the guy who always goes with shotgun or light machine gun, I'm just not a good sniper. So, in ME3 I always played a vanguard and got really good at it. In GoW i would 2 piece people all day long and love it. This is how i have played over the years and would like a mouse that helps me 2 piece.

Thanks

1. What's your grip style?
I won't really have a set style, but if I had to choose it'd be palm

2. What's your sensitivity?
I am not sure if i'm answering this question correctly, but my preferred DPI is 1500 - 2000

3. What's your maximum budget?
I'd really prefer to keep it under $20, the cheaper the better. I don't need a fancy sensor or completely perfect tracking since my "mousepad" is going to be my bed's blanket anyway, lol.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
5 button is a must, I already have a 3 button wireless that I am looking to replace for this reason specifically.

5. What games do you play?
I already have a Xornet for gaming.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
No.

7. Other relevant information:
Must be wireless. Going to be using it around 15 feet away from the computer for watching videos on my bed. Like I said above, I don't need anything fancy as long as it works, I know it might be impossible but I'd really like to find something under $10.
Oh.
