[Official] The Mouse Suggestion Thread - Page 58

post #571 of 6288
Hey folks, im in need of a new mouse.

1. What's your grip style?

Palm grip, really like to rest my hand entirely on the mouse.

2. What's your sensitivity?

Between 2000 and 4000 DPI i believe butvery depending on mood and energy. Can switch from big fast movments on the mousepad to high sens small movements.

3. What's your maximum budget?

As long as its worth it, im ok with it

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Yes

5. What games do you play?

FPS, Mostly BF3. Also some music production.

6. Do you mind about prediction?

I do mind it and dont want it

7. Other relevant information:

I used to be a sucker for Razer, but they never really fit me or my playstyle. Last Razer i had was the Lachesis. OK fit in my hand, but after some minutes of immersive gaming, i found my finger tips to have "slid" beyond the two main buttons and me gripping the mouse between the back of my palm and the first joint of my index and middle finger.
Wired, medium to heavy weight. Would be nice to see the mouse in a dark room but no requirement. Good ergonomics, right handed.

Genius thread! thanks for helping.

The Logitech G400 has been the best palm grip mouse in my experience.
post #574 of 6288
1. What's your grip style?

Palm Grip

2. What's your sensitivity?

Depends on game from 800 to 4000

3. What's your maximum budget?

100-150$ ,

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Yes definately needs at least 3+ buttons as long as they're relatively easy clickable (unlike f.e lachesis with if buttons would be on right side of mouse.)

5. What games do you play?

MMO's, CS:GO , Dota 2 and others - all around

6. Do you mind about prediction?

Not really sure.


Mice i've used for past few years - MX518 definately been my favorite mouse in last decade. Very comfortable for my hand , size/weight is good. Looking for similar form/size/weight factor but with more additional buttons. Currently looking at Razer Naga Hex as possible upgrade - any other suggestions will be appreciated. A plus would be if mouse feels good on plastic pad as i currently own Steelseries SnS. Logitech G400 has great form factor but i'd appreciate more buttons

post #577 of 6288
Just in case anyone was curious, I settled on the Roccat Savu and ordered it a few minutes ago. One thing that was weird was the price dropped dramatically in recent days. It was $69.99 when I checked on newegg a few days ago but I bought it for $39.99 today on amazon and newegg has dropped their price by $10 too. The price compared with the fact that I noticed it is a bit lighter than the G400 is what sold it to me. I had forgetten to think about weight and thinking back, there were times in the past where I preferred lighter mice.

I've listed below pretty much all the mice that I think are contenders (from the mouse sensor tech thread here) so what I'm looking for is opinions on how close these mice are for what I'm looking for. When it comes to what grip each mouse is good for, I think I need some more opinions because reviews vary pretty largely.

1. What's your grip style?
Claw... I think. As far as I know, the deathadder is a palm mouse but I still claw it. As a reference for size if I palm the DA, my fingertip up to my first knuckle extends over it if I palm it.

2. What's your sensitivity?
I don't have much experience except with some occasional use of my friend's DA but if I had to put out a number, 3000 is the very highest I can see myself possibly wanting to experiment with.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Under 60$ would be preferable like all the mice I have in mind but I'm open for suggestions of other mice that weren't listed on the mouse sensor tech guide.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
A couple would be nice.

5. What games do you play?
Various MMO's and TF2 mainly.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Prediction doesn't seem to help consistency wise so no. Are there situations where prediction is good?

7. Other relevant information:
Other than the stuff listed above, the only thing I will possibly make my decision on is how reliable the brand's customer service is.

NO DEATHADDER, I feel like trying something new and I feel like clawing a palm mouse isn't using it like it was designed for anyways.

Other than that, the only two sensors that seem like good choices are the Avago 9500/9800 etc and the Avago 3090/3060 etc

Avago 9500- There's acceleration but I still have my reasons for these mice.
Corsair M60 ($55-$60)- I prefer this mouse most aesthetically. Overall it seems like a good mouse and from what I've read, corsair has good build quality.

Corsair M90 ($50-$55)- The software is crappy but I still think I can make use of this mouse for my mmo's. It is a palm grip from what I've seen though so I'm a bit iffy with that aspect.

Sharkoon Darkglider ($55) - The reviews haven't been superb but then again they also seemed biased. Either way, the reason this mouse is here is because of its size. It's the only one I've listed that is longer than the deathadder.

Avago 3090- Arguably the best sensor out there.
CM Recon ($40)- The quality, sensor, price are all there. I'm just not 100% sure about the grip of this mouse. Other than that, the only thing stopping me from buying this is that I think the M60 is nicer looking tongue.gif

Roccat Savu ($40)- Decently priced but it doesn't really stand out since Roccat seems to have below average build quality. It also apparently has "sandpaper" like grip which doesn't seem too pleasant.

R.A.T. 3 ($60)- I'm curious why they only put opticals in for this mouse rather than the other ones as well. Unfortunately this has none of the customization R.A.T.'s are known for and is on the higher spectrum of price so I probably won't go for this one.

NZXT Avatar ($30) - I just saw this the other day. It's the cheapest mouse by far but it looks kind of weird.

Honestly, the real choice is between the M50, M60 and the Recon but I posted the other mice just in case there are some redeeming qualities I didn't know about them.

Thanks in advance =]

The avatar isn't long, it's just really narrow. I wouldn't recommend it. I'm having a hard time telling how you hold a mouse.

I'd recommend the G400, it uses the Avango 3095, which is pretty much the same as the 3090.
The only Avango 3090 mice without prediction that I know of are:
G400 (designed for palm grip, but it's good for claw as well)
Deathadder (nope)
Abyssus
CM storm spawn (I've heard it has some tracking problems with new firmware and at its lowest DPI setting)
Zowie EC Evo
Zowie AM
RAT 3 (probably too small to claw grip)
Savu (I've heard it's uncomfortable to claw grip)
Puretrack valor (I've heard it has problems)

my thoughts on some mice for the 9500 sensor:
M60 & M90: heavier than they should be.
Darkglider: also heavier than it should be. It comes with ceramic and teflon skates, which is always good.
G500: Like the G400 but had a bit better build quality
G9x: I've heard good things about it
Sensei: I've also heard good things about this one
