Same sensor AFAIK.

Sensei has modified ee and better micro controller, The rest is quite similar from an internal aspect.

I prefer the Xai coating on the outside.

Man, I wish Steelseries would stop making ambidextrous mice.

Think I am just gonna stick to DeathAdder BE.

Well the DA has a better sensor anyway, so...

Anyway,

Another reason a good mouse like the Logitech G400 is better is that it is well designed, so it is very comfortable if you want to palm or claw grip it.
The G400 is uncomfortable to finger tip grip
The Deathadder is comfortable to fingertip grip, but you have to hold it too far forward of the centre of gravity, which causes it to fishtail a bit.
The Zowie AM looks comfortable to finger tip grip.
I think the Zowie EC Evo series also would be comfortable for finger tip gripping.
No idea on the CM storm spawn; it just looks uncomfortable.
The EC wasn't great to fingertip for me. I find the G400 to be just fine to fingertip. Palming it doesn't seem like the way to go with it, really, because of the ridge behind the thumb cutout makes it want to angle. I really should try filing down the sides a bit in a few places, anyone know how deep can I go without breaking through?

I've heard a lot of people saying the EC is comfortable to fingertip grip.
Personally, I have found the G400 to be the most easily controlled when palm gripping, though, I can't really aim well with palm grip. I use claw grip on it, and it works perfectly, except for the ridge on the right side.

Since I have been feeling so indecisive about some of the stuff I have looked at lately, might as well post in this thread.

1. What's your grip style?
100% claw.

2. What's your sensitivity?
I keep my current mouse around 1000 dpi. Occasionally I switch to 2000 dpi.

3. What's your maximum budget?
$75 (before tax, ship) is absolute max but would prefer something a bit cheaper. I don't really see the point in mice over that price considering what can all be found for $70 and cheaper.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Two left side buttons minimum. I'm ok with more but no MMO mouse.

5. What games do you play?
FPS, RTS, MMO, RPG, everything pretty equally.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Preferably not but I know I've gotten used to mice who have had it in the past so I'll leave this open.

7. Other relevant information:
Right handed or ambi is fine.
Wired.
Since I like to claw, big mice have generally been kind of uncomfortable to me in the past even though I don't have small hands.
Do not recommend a Razer mouse. I will never buy anything from them again. That brand is dead to me.
Current mousepad: noidpad evolution
See below for more info that may be relevant.....

8. Current mice I have shopped and reasons why:

Zowie Gear EC2 eVo = Very "standard" looking setup. No bull****. Not sure though. Saw some people talk about build quality being suspect?

Cooler Master Storm Spawn = Shape looks good. Sounds like firmware is a mixed bag. Most people seem to say with the right firmware performance is fine?

Cooler Master Recon = Seems like an evolution of the above for the most part. Worried about the shape being too ergo curved. Wondering if the sides are vertical enough for a good claw grip.

Steelseries Sensei Raw = Seems decent enough. Near the limit of my budget.

Roccat Savu = I've seen a few posts here say that this mouse has a very good hardware setup; high tracking speed, etc. Shape looks ok-ish. Left side buttons look strangely placed on the "corner" as opposed to the side? Near the limit of my budget.

9. Gaming Mouse Ownership History:
Razer Boomslang 2000, Razer Viper, Razer Copperhead, Razer Deathadder (3 of the early models), Razer Lachesis.

Look at the Logitech G400 as well; it's a good mouse. It's great for palm and claw grip
The Savu is only for fingertip grip, according to the reviews I have read.
If you liked the Deathadder's sensor, look at the EC Evo and the G400.
If you want to avoid acceleration entirely, don't go for the sensai or any mouse with that sensor.

I appreciate the suggestions. Some questions: Isn't the G400 predominantly a palm grip design? ....being largish and sculpted? Even if it is "claw-able" I would wonder if it is kind of stretch to do it.

In my experience, both G400 and Savu are "claw-able". Actually I prefer claw and clawpaw to the "supposed" grips on both of them,

The G400 isn't large, my fingers extend past the buttons when I palm grip it; I'd actaully like a G400 that was a bout 10-20% larger. The only problem with a claw grip is that the ridge on the right side may be a little uncomfortable.
