[Official] The Mouse Suggestion Thread - Page 7

post #61 of 6172
I'm really lost when it comes to mice...

1. What's your grip style?
Palm, hardcore lazy palm.

2. What's your sensitivity?
I'm pretty sure I'm using the default 800dpi on my mouse, default windows sens. In Source, I use raw mouse input with sensitivity 2. So, low sensitivity.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Probably about $100, but I can be convinced.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
This is a big deal for me. I have 4 thumb buttons on my Performance MX and I use them all heavily when I play. I can't imagine giving them up.

5. What games do you play?
L4D2, TF2, CSS...

6. Do you mind about prediction?
No idea.

7. Other relevant information:
Basically, I love my Performance MX, but it's getting old and it's wireless. I just want a high quality wired mouse (giving up on wireless) with 4 thumb buttons. I'd prefer a heavy, ergonomic mouse.

1. What's your grip style?
Palm and Claw

2. What's your sensitivity?
Medium but I want the mouse to work well in high sensitivity as well.

3. What's your maximum budget?
$100 USD/CAD not including taxes and shipping

4. Do you want additional buttons?
2 on the left side, dpi button optional

5. What games do you play?
TF2 mainly, other FPS games

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I prefer little to no prediction.

7. Other relevant information:
Has to be wired
I lift my mouse a lot
I hate the glossy sides on Razer mice and cheap plastic that wears off
I don't care if it's laser or optical but I do use a soft mouse pad (Puretrak Talent).

Fairly small hands - 14cm from index finger to bottom of palm
Did not like the shape of MX518 - base is too small?
Did not like the shape of Lachesis - too flat
Liked Imperator shape (place to rest thumb + arc of base), also like the Ikari but would prefer a slightly smaller mouse

Thanks! <3

1. What's your grip style?
Palm (I'm currently using the Microsoft Sidewinder X5)

2. What's your sensitivity?
Medium to high. I'm currently using 2000dpi but I would prefer to have higher dpi because I find that my mouse is too slow at times.

3. What's your maximum budget?
I'd say around $150 AUD

4. Do you want additional buttons?
I'm not to fussed with additional buttons but I at least want the forward and back button.

5. What games do you play?
I play TF2, L4D2 and COD Black ops.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Don't really know anything about prediction.

7. Other relevant information:
I have big hands so with my current mouse my fingers are touching my desk when I hold the mouse which makes my mouse hard to use at times.

I prefer wired mice but if the mouse is wireless but can be used while charging that is fine with me. I prefer matt finish not glossy as I tend to sweat a bit at times.

My mouse at the moment gives me crams at times cause it has no finger support on the sides so some sort of finger support on the sides would be great.

wow that's a lot of people asking! ^^

I'll try to give my two cents and help answering the questions.


Siegfried262: Can't think of a 800dpi claw grip with excellent tracking! Can someone help me out answering this? I always don't suggest big and heavy mouses for claw grip but if you can stand with those, then you have a lot of options: Zowie EC1/EC2 (good tracking for low dpi) and Razer Deathadder for example.

ProdigySim: 4 thumb buttons? Oh, no idea. SteelSeries Xai and SenSei have 4 side buttons but two on each side (not 4 in thumb), but don't forget the infamous inconsistent acceleration present in all Avago ADNS-9500 based mice. BTW, since you have low sensitivity, I don't recommend those. If you can give up in the 4 thumb buttons, then Zowie EC1/EC2 and Razer Deathadder are good choices.

Charmape: Spawn! (maybe you can palm it since you have small hands, but you can claw it just fine, btw it was specifically designed for claw grip).

Jaxlb: Deathadder (Black Edition: no glossy), but it has no finger support. SteelSeries Ikari and a Mionix Naos mouse has a bit of support, but I can't tell you how good is their tracking for mid/high dpi. Can someone help me out answering this?



And some of you guys didn't even bothered reading the prediction explanation I wrote in the "Read First" thread? You lazy bastards! tongue.gif
post #65 of 6172
After a day's research I've been unable to decide for the right mouse - apparently it isn't mentioned much how well the middle mouse button on certain products is working and I don't want to take any chances like I did last time. So you can probably guess what kind of mouse I am looking for already! rolleyes.gif

1. What's your grip style?
Palm grip.

2. What's your sensitivity?
My current mouse is a Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 and is around 1000dpi according to this site. I suppose around the 1800dpi would also work just fine for me as I've tested and tried a Logitech MX518 mouse earlier.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Around 130$ max and very likely less. I don't want a price range to be an obstacle for you though!

4. Do you want additional buttons?
I don't mind additional buttons but I would probably prefer as little other buttons as possible (besides a left mouse button, right mouse button and most important: a well functioning middle mouse button/scroll wheel).

5. What games do you play?
I'm primarily going to use the mouse within Blender (3D Software). Unfortunately my current mouse's middle mouse button is hard, inaccurate and prevents a proper workflow.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
No, not at all. At least I don't think I do, err.

7. Other relevant information:
The reason to that I am looking for a new mouse is because my current mouse's middle mouse button is way too hard to press and strains my finger - either when I'm simply browsning or working in Blender for a short period of time. So my only additional requirement to the mouse would be that the Middle Mouse Button is easily pressed. Compatibility with Linux would also be nice, but definitely not a requirement since that seems to be pretty rare. The longer durability, the better too of course! ^^

Your help is really appreciated, I will come back to any of you if you can come up with a recommendation. smile.gif

1. What's your grip style?
Palm/Fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?
Medium

3. What's your maximum budget?
around 50-60€, give or take, the cheaper the better ^^

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Don't really care

5. What games do you play?
FPS, MMO, Sandbox, 3rd person, racing

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I don't really like the idea of my mouse telling me what I did was wrong.

I think I could live with a palm grip if the mouse was large enough. The Deathadder looks interesting. If the claw grip restriction is lifted, what might you recommend?

1. What's your grip style? Palm grip.

2. What's your sensitivity? Around 800-1000 dpi on my MX518. Somehow, I just can't control the mouse the way I want at higher dpi for some reason, yet I want more dpi to be able to fly the damn jet in bf3.

3. What's your maximum budget? You get what you pay for, so unlimited budget.

4. Do you want additional buttons? dpi adjustment buttons, and 10+ customizable buttons. Going to use them when GW2 comes out

5. What games do you play? Battlefield 3, Starcraft 2, LoL, prolly Skyrim, Minecraft

6. Do you mind about prediction? Nope. Better if it doesn't have one.

7. Other relevant information: Right handed, NO wireless period, prefer matte (low priority though).

Also looking for a good mouse pad. My current (cheap) one that I bought from Target has its edge curled up, and the grease from my hand that deposit on its surface over time now causes my mouse to jitter when glide over certain area, which is annoying as f***.

1. What's your grip style? Palm grip.

2. What's your sensitivity? I honestly have no clue. I've been using a Microsoft wireless 3000 for a mouse and I've been using whatever is stock on this.

3. What's your maximum budget? I'd like to keep it under $50

4. Do you want additional buttons? I do but I don't have to have them.

5. What games do you play? League of Legends and probably some random MMO that I will play for a while then forget about.

6. Do you mind prediction? I don't know the answer to this because I don't know if my current mouse has it, but I don't think I would if it had a little bit.

7. Other relevant information: I'm right handed and I do not want a wireless mouse. I'd like to have onboard memory on the mouse to save profiles to them but this is not a must. My hand is about 1 inch bigger than my current mouse if I were to palm grip it. Hopefully you guys will recommend something with long durability. biggrin.gif

Thanks for the help.
