[Official] The Mouse Suggestion Thread - Page 47

post #461 of 6281
Just bought a Zalman ZM-GM1 and I would recommend it to anybody who wants a serious gaming mouse without a hefty price tag. It's got a max DPI of 6000 and a min DPI of 800. Adjustable weight and has 8 programmable buttons. Cable is braided for durability with a gold plated USB. I would personally compare this mouse with the likes of the Logitech G500, Asus GX-900 and Roccat Cone although the software isn't as polished! It cost me R300 which is +- $36US! So when considering the price it is well worth it! Here! Check it out for yourselves!

Avango 9500 sensor.
It has acceleration.
post #463 of 6281
1. What's your grip style? Palm

2. What's your sensitivity? 400dpi, 3.47 in CSGO

3. What's your maximum budget? $100

4. Do you want additional buttons? Yes, a total of at least 5 buttons including the standard L, R, MWheel. (So at least 2 extras)

5. What games do you play? CSGO CSS CS 1.6

6. Do you mind about prediction? Yes. No prediction is crucial.

Other relevant information:
Current mouse is a wireless intellipoint 2.0. It is finally breaking after 8+ years.
I play on a cloth mousepad

I need great build quality.
I need a wired mouse.
I need a sensor with no acceleration at all.

Things I would prefer:
Low LOD would be lovely
Driverless/Plug'n'play for LANs
Non-glossy surface
Non-ambidextrous
Fairly heavy
Braided cord

Bonus info I'm curious about. I just bought a QcK mousepad for $8. It tracks terribly with my current mouse. (optical) After reading a bit about optical sensors, it seems they need something to view as moving. I assumed this was the case with my mouse. ...I was going to return it but it was only $8 so whatever. a) But do newer optical sensors also have problems tracking on solid-colour surfaces? b) Do infrared sensors have a problem with solid-colour surfaces?

Ignore the RAT 7 comment, you will suit a good old optical way better.
And no, newer opticals do not have tracking problems on solid-colour surfaces.
Roccat Savu, Razer Deathadder and the Zowie EC 1 or 2 might suit you fine.
The Savu and the Deathadder has onboard memory, so you will need to download the software and fix settings there, but you can then plug out the mouse and have the same settings stored.
The Zowie mouse however, does not have drivers at all and you change the DPI and Hz on the bottom of the mouse and with buttons when you plug it in. It also has a special lens that lowers max trackingrate but it also decreases the LOD significantly.

I'm currently using a TT Black, its a good mouse and I don't have any issues with it,
but after purchasing a Razer Goliathus speed, The way I use the mouse changed.
I was using a cheap $5 mousepad before and it was rough.

I want a smaller and lighter mouse than the TT Black

If my information is correct, Black is just 89.5g and you already find it too heavy?

SS Kana is 72g, wired, has no prediction, has one side button on either side of the mouse, making a total of two. But I guess you want two buttons both on the left hand side? Also it only has fixed DPI steps at 400, 800, 1600 and 3200 and you may need to fiddle with pointer speed settings to get the sensitivity you want.

I am not aware of any other mouse that is significantly smaller / lighter than Black and still fulfill your requirements. Let's see if others have better ideas.

Preferably 2 left side buttons, the tt black has 1 button on the left but it is awkward to use. More buttons would be useful.
About the size, probably not lighter but smaller, but not as small as the CM Spawn.

1. What's your grip style?
fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?
3200 dpi

3. What's your maximum budget?
$100

4. Do you want additional buttons?
At least 2 additional buttons are handy, but could go with more/less if it's a nice mouse.

5. What games do you play?
FPS, RTS, MOBA such as CSS, CSGO, SC2, LoL, DOTA2.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not sure exactly what it is, but probably don't want it.

7. Other relevant information:
Right handed. Currently using G9, but the right click is going out so looking for a new, different mouse although this one is really nice. One problem I had with it is the middle mouse button was really hard to press down, so frictionless scroll wheel isn't necessary but I don't mind as long as the middle mouse click is easy to press down. Size would be either close to G9 or longer would be nice.
Thanks for any help in advance biggrin.gif

That's better, if weight is not too much a concern.

I list the mice that have size between Black and Spawn with 2 buttons on the left.

Savu, Recon (about 100g though), Saphira, Sensei (narrower but longer than Black)

See the choices above, plus Spawn.
