It doesnt really compare to the AM. The AM have lower lift off and is best used at 450/1150 cpi afaik. The AM is also prefered by claw/findertip gripper because of its ambidextrous shape, afaik.

I feel that my deathadder is the exact opposite in terms of ergonomics and tracking to my g400. While you can palm both, the ergonomics are very different, mostly because the g400 support your pinkie finger while the deathadder dont. The deathadder also track best at 1800 cpi, while the G400 is at 400-800 cpi. Both work driverless for me, but you cant change de CPI on the deathadder. You will need to change your in game sensivity.


Once again, I cant talk for the savu.

So I'm down to 4 mice I'm considering. The G9X, M60, Deathadder (all of them are really close to $50), and the CM spawn ( which is $10 less). I'm leaning more towards the first 3 because I don't really like the way the last one looks (any better looking mice with the same sensor?). Is the acceleration on the G9X and the M60 really noticeable, and does the Deathadder have it too? At around the same price point I'm having a really hard time choosing between them. Shoul I just choose 1 randomly, or is there something I missed? Thanks.

1. I guide with my fingers and push with my palm if that makes sense?

2. I love low sensitivity, every first person shooter I play I use the lowest sensitivity. On my old G5 i always used 800DPI

3. I would prefer to pay $30 but can spend up to $50-60

4. No additional buttons.

5. Counterstrike

6. I have never used a mice with prediction, I would presume that I would not want it.

7. Corded please! No razer mice!


help me, the last gaming mice I used was the g5 and that was the only option at the time.

I misread that.

Is there any actual precision difference between 800 and 1600 DPI?

The Logitech G400 is good on 800DPI, and only $40 if you get a deal.

The deathadder dont have acceleration.


The acceleration in the G9X and the M60 is only noticeable if you play with a low sensivity.

Well the perfect control speed is significantly lower using 1600 DPI, meaning that if you move your mouse really fast it will not respond proprely.
At 3600 CPI you will experience minor jitter.


Dont get me wrong, the g400 is doing good at 1600 and 3600 CPI, but it really shine at 400-800.

I can't recommend Zowie because I personally feel that some of the hardware used isn't up to par. I won't go into specific details.


Deathadder tracks perfectly fine @ 900 and 450. What do you mean by not being able to change DPI? It's possible to toggle through multiple steps if you're willing to give up one side button.


On the Savu, you can use easy shift macros to select DPI up and down. 400-800-1600-4000.

Thanks for the help; I will probably look into a G400. The reason I am swapping out the Deathadder is because of the ergonomics, and that looks to be the most comfortable.

1. What's your grip style?
Palm/Fingertip
2. What's your sensitivity?
800-1200
3. What's your maximum budget?
$100 US
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Left side button(s), dpi switch
5. What games do you play?
CS:GO, BF3, TF2
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Prefer without
7. Other relevant information:
Looking for something that can run driverless. Preferably right hand specific, would also like a high/low dpi switch, and lastly an easy to use middle mouse button. Tried a G9x, found it was too short (palm hanging off back) and too hard to hit middle mouse without accidentally scrolling. Currently using a Deathadder Black, love the ergos, but missing driverless operation and a simple dpi switch (dislike on-the-fly adjustment because it takes to long accurately scroll/select).

Another reason for Savu with driverless operation - It saves all 5 profiles with onboard memory. Once you set all the profiles you need in the driver, you can just uninstall it (or use it on another computer) and go driverless.

Well about changing the DPI, I meant that the Deathadder do not feature a convenient button that allow you to switch it without giving up another button. There is the little button on the bottom but it's a PITA to use.

Somehow I was quite sure that the Deathadder was not optimal at 900 and 450, my bad on this one.
