[Official] The Mouse Suggestion Thread - Page 5

post #41 of 6260
To J92.

I can not think any mouse can fulfill your increase or decrease requirement by 1 DPI except the new mouse SteelSeries Sensei. However, I am afraid that your 80 Euro is not enough to buy this mouse because this mouse costs 89 Euro (have not yet include tax or shipping fee or something like that).

Sensei has prediction but you can adjust prediction to suit your need. If you want no prediction at all with this mouse, I do not think you can so you have to accept that.

If you need a durable mouse I think you are right about G500. Besides, G500 - Xai - Sensei use the same laser sensor. If you used to use Xai and you liked it so you can choose G500 or Sensei without any problem. However, be aware that there was a special case of a member is this box had a problem with his Sensei. The mouse did not work and he is returning it to SteelSeries support.

But if you need the most precision mouse out there. I am afraid you have to choose Razer DeathAdder, MX518 or G400 or IE series (These mice were tested by professional gamers).

If I made mistakes, please forgive me because I am still learning this field.

Thanks for your reply LoveKnight.

Yes, I was afraid that there possibly wouldn't be a mouse for all my requirements. After using Xai, I guess it would be a natural move to change to Sensei because of the same shape and sensor. But I think it's is not worth of buying. What comes to G500 it has same shape as MX-518 and same sensor as Xai and it's a lot cheaper than Sensei.

I've tested many times my friends Deathadder and I just don't like its shape.

I don't think that G400 would be my choice either. It's just a new model of Mx-518 which I'm currently using (but unfortunately its right mouse button isn't working properly).

MS IE-series has no changeable DPI and it's old. biggrin.gif

Is there some other mice I should consider or should I just buy a G500?

I currently have a Razer Deathadder that is dying. I've had it about 2.5 years. Only six months after I bought it, the mouse wheel click stopped working. I never use that so it wasn't a big deal. But recently it has started accidentally double-clicking, which gets annoying. So I'm looking to replace it:

1. What's your grip style?
This
I guess it is a claw grip, but I use the wrist pad as a pivot.

2. What's your sensitivity?
At 1800dpi, it's a 6 in the Windows control panel, and in Source games I have sensitivity set to 5.

3. What's your maximum budget?
~$50

4. Do you want additional buttons?
At least the two thumb buttons for web browsing.

5. What games do you play?
Everything from RTS to FPS, although I don't like sniping, I'm usually CQB.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Dislike

7. Other relevant information:
I'm right handed.
I really prefer wired, I hate batteries dying in the middle of a game.

I know a lot of people like the Deathadder, and it does fit my style well, but I haven't been happy with the quality of mine. I've been looking at the R.A.T. 3, but I've heard bad things about the reliability of those mice.

1. What's your grip style?
Claw

2. What's your sensitivity?
Medium

3. What's your maximum budget?
No max budget

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Only a few, less than 10

5. What games do you play?
I play all types, MMORPGs, RTSs, FPSs etc... The main game it matters for though is Battlefield 3.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I don't know.

7. Other relevant information:
I want a wired mouse. I'd like the ability to switch the DPI on the fly. I do not like buttons on the right side of the mouse. I am a fan of unique looking mice also, note, I do not like how the RAT looks.

Thanks for any help!

The CM storm spawn at 1800 DPI is good for claw grip. Do you claw grip your DA? If that is the case, the spawn may be too small for you.

It does fit your other requirements though.

EDIT: just saw your pic...still recommend the storm spawn, or the DA:BE.

The CM spawn and xornet look pretty nice for what I need. My hang up though honestly is the price. They are so cheap and it makes me worried that I am getting a sub-par mouse. What are peoples thoughts on those two mice? I am specifically looking at getting the xornet once it comes out because I've seen mixed reviews about the spawn's sensor. Otherwise, does anyone have recommendations for other mice similar to the spawn and xornet?

Hmm, that does look a little small, is it about the size of a laptop mouse? The shape looks kind of odd too, for a right-handed mouse. I have yet to find a mouse that's too big for my hand, I used to have a Logitech laser wireless mouse, the Deathadder is quite a bit smaller than that.

It is shaped like that because of the finger rest on the right side for your ring and/or pinky finger.

Is your palm on resting on the back of the mouse in your photo? If it's not, then the spawn would be OK. To me, your grip is more fingertip than claw, but you know better than i do how you hold your mouse

There is a whole thread about the spawn here. Most people would say that it is a very well built mouse. Higher priced mouses are not necessarily higher quality (look at Razer -> always has build quality issues with their mice, though the DA and Abysuss are great).

The Abysuss and spawn are similar, but there is not DPI switching on the former, but it is a very simple mouse; only 3 buttons. One thing to watch out for on the the Abyssus is some people complain about jitter on their clothe pads (recently as well).

Hi, I'm looking for a mouse and need suggestions.
1. What's your grip style?
Palm grip
2. What's your sensitivity?
I'm using a regular logitech wireless 800dpi mouse right now and really need better speeds.
3. What's your maximum budget?
40$ CAN preferably shipped, or picked up locally
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Not mandatory really, idc if the mouse has some or not
5. What games do you play?
LoL, SCII, BF3, MW2, DIRT3
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Nope
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

I would like a wireless mouse preferably but i can live with wired too.
Mouse can't be too small or too big, it makes it uncomfortable.
I have never tried changing the weight of a mouse so I'll let you guide me into the right weight for my type.
Having a dpi switch on the mouse would be nice but not mandatory.
Here are the mouses i'm looking at:
Steelseries Kinzu 3200dpi 27.99$
Thermaltake Black 4000dpi 34.99$
CM Inferno 4000dpi 38.99$ (the one i'm considering....)
The mouses I've listed can all be picked up at a local store which is good for me...
Thanks in advance! biggrin.gif
