[Official] The Mouse Suggestion Thread - Page 6

post #51 of 6207
To polm.

Maybe there are three mice can help you.

First, Razer DeathAdder but this mouse is little bit hard to lift the mouse off the mousepad.

Second, Logitech MX518, this mouse is a living legend but the drawback is very hard to clean it after a long time of using so I suggest you should clean this mouse at least one a month or you will regret why you did not do that.

Finally, G400 is the upgraded version of MX518. At this time, many positive reviews about this mouse but there is one problem. When you install the driver there is little prediction, I do not know the newest firmware or driver can solve this matter yet or not.

You used to use a Logitech mouse so I believe your feeling is more suitable to Logitech mice than Razer mice.

3 mice above are the best mice of current mice in the market. Believe me, you do not need to buy an expensive mouse like Sensei, Mamba, Imperator or some mice like that because laser sensor is not as precise as optical sensor now, hope in the future this will change.

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

Because you want the most accurate mouse so I suggest you can choose any DeathAdder versions(DA with no prediction, no jitter,... but you need to be aware that DeathAdder can get double-click issue if you are a hardcore gamer that clicks the mouse at least one thousand clicks a day). You can buy QCK+ for DeathAdder or you can try 4HD. I am sorry I am not good at choosing good at mousepad.

Please do not ever buy any other Razer mice except these mice are Deathadder, Krait, Copperhead because ... you will know the reason if you want to try.

Wireless is not good for gamers because you can feel the delays sometimes so I suggest you should not try a wireless mouse.

If you want a durable mouse I suggest you can try Logitech's products such as G500-G400 or even G900 but these mouse are not accurate 100% because they have prediction and they use Avergo 9500 (well, this is a long story but you can search in this forum to know what members said about this sensor, except that G400 use optical sensor). However, their precision can be about 95% and you can increase the precision by using hard mousepad and laser mice help you use on common surfaces such as table, paper, glass better than optical mice.

According to my knowledge optical helps you track more precision than laser but a laser sensor have more DPI than optical and it can help you use multiple monitors easier than 1 monitor.

If you want a symmetric mouse, you can try Steelseries such as Kinzu, Xai or Sensei but I afraid I have to tell you that these mouse are not 99%-100% accurate when you compare to DeathAdder or Microsoft IE mice.

That is what I know, hope these information can help you buy a good mouse. If I make mistakes, please forgive me. I am still learning this field.

Thanks Loveknight and Hella, I did my choice towards G700, Deathadder is no question a great mouse but in our country it's hard to find and its price almost same with G700's price. Also build quality and great customer service of Logitech attracted me. Package arrived home several hours ago, after 6 hours I will unpack it (I'm @work right now) smile.gif I hope it will be so much better experience for me with G700 than with my old Sidewinder X8 (whatever I did it had jitter and felt uncomfortable to track and aim in games frown.gif ). Thanks for your opinions. Byez.

Since you're into 3D modeling I would stay away from anything with prediction. All logitech mice, All Avago 9500 mice (Xai, Sensei, G9, RAT series, etc) and I'd stick with your presumptions. Deathadder and kinzuadder are your ways to go.

Sorry for the late reply. Kinzuadder/Deathadder Black Edition it is. Thanks.

I use palm grip and am currently using a DA 3.5, I find it's too small for my hands though, previously I used the G5 which I liked but it died, and the G500 which was horrible and so I bought a DA, but like I said, too tiny. Any suggestions?

The G500 is one of the biggest mouse I've ever seen/tried, one of the most comfortable also and it is my actual mouse. Probably one of the A4tech designs will suit you since the textures and shapes are very similar to those used by logitech, its a shame they don't provide real higher dpi (beware of interpolation, their sensors are listed tho).

To LemonMeringueTy.

So how about a Cyborg R.A.T or a Logitech G9x? These two mice are big and you can increase the size of these mouse.

I didn't like the G500 because I felt the weight of it wasn't balanced right, tried every combination of weights possible but couldn't get a feel for it.

I had considered the G9x but I heard it had a bad sensor, I never thought of the RAT series since it's done by MadCatz and I'm still a little biased when it comes to them ever since I tried one of their horrible N64 controllers back in the day.

Logitech G9x uses Avago ADNS-S9500 sensor which is not a perfect precise sensor but it is good enough to play any game. I do not remember clearly about it has negative or positive acceleration but you can tackle this problem by using hard mousepad such as SteelSeries 4HD or 9HD.

Oh by the way, Cyborg R.A.T series use Philips Twin Eye sensors. I used to have a bad feeling about these sensors because the Imperator that I bought couple months ago uses this sensor. It was a nightmare, it caused so many troubles.

The new RMA of R.A.T is said to have corrected the xy axis issue. And a semicircular opening on the sensor is suppossed to correct 90% of the zaxis issue so the R.A.T seems pretty flawless to me (a little bit pricey tho).

1. What's your grip style?
Claw grip preferably.

2. What's your sensitivity?
The cheap-o mouse I use currently runs at 800dpi and it's a sensitivity I'm rather comfortable with. More options would be nice but I'd like a mouse that can do at or around 800dpi at the least.

3. What's your maximum budget?
25-50 range. I don't need anything too crazy but an upgrade from my Big Lots mouse would be nice/

4. Do you want additional buttons?
It would be handy to have a few extra buttons but I could go either way.

5. What games do you play?
Shooters, Rpgs, Rts, you name it tongue.gif

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not entirely sure, could someone elaborate?

7. Other relevant information:
A little bit of heft wouldn't be bad but I wouldn't want it to be too heavy.

What might you guys suggest? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
