[Official] The Mouse Suggestion Thread - Page 68

post #671 of 6288
Hi people, I'm having a hard time trying to choose a Mouse for my New Razer Scarab Mousepad, my 2 thoughts now are The Razer Mamba 4G and the Cyborg R.A.T.9, I'm open to heard any Suggestion.

1. What's your grip style?

I usually have the Claw Grip but I can get used to almost anything since I've changed My mouse So many times, I've had Mouse for Palm, Claw, ETC... I feel like Claw is Mine, I have a crappy Genius Mouse Now, those you can get for free.

2. What's your sensitivity?

2500 DPI On a 1280x1024 Monitor, I think it means High sensitivity, Not sure.

3. What's your maximum budget?

500$ For my Mouse + Mousepad, I'm 99% I'm going to get the Razer Scarab along with the new Mouse I decide to Buy, I'm open to suggestion on this too.

4. Do you want additional buttons?

5 Buttons, Not less, I need 2 Buttons on the side more than the 3 Buttons on all Mouses (Right click, Left and wheel)

5. What games do you play?

1-) World of Warcraft as Main Game, Got Rank 1 in 2v2 on my Current server 5 months ago with my Old gaming mouse (Fierce Rude Gameware 5600 DPI) after it died, My Score got ****ed due to my new Genius Mouse, playing Death Knight.

2-) Call of Duty Modern Warfare 1-2-3 Multiplayer.

3-)The Elder Scroll V

4-)Darksider, Devil May Cry and that Kind of Games.

5-) Battlefield 3

6-) Dead Space 1-2-3

7-) A little of LoL

6. Do you mind about prediction?

I'm truly not sure, I haven't tried this feature before, I don't know how this would Improve my Gaming, I prefer to Believe I'm Accurate enough even in a Hard Mousepad.

7. Other relevant information:

Wireless Mouse, never Wired, I'm Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiireeeeeeeeeeed of the tangled feedback I have from wired Mouses, Even high ends Gaming Wired Mouses, I still can feel it, Much less but I do feel it, The faster the Mouse the better (1 MS Or less) Bad ass look Style prefered, but performance is first, I do prefer the most accurate Mouse with the best performance even having the worst design.

I'm having a hard time thinking on the R.A.T.9 Or the Rzer Mamba 4G, I actually made a Post with a Pool asking for suggestions and Votes, a second Opinion wouldn't be bad.

Thanks in advanced and forgive my English, Not my first Language.

Both the RAT and Mamba should perform similarly, as they both have the same sensor. The mamba has a bad grip shape, IMO, if it is indeed like the same shape as the deathadder.

But the Razer Mamba have an Optical 4G and the R.A.T.9 use a Laser Sensor.

4G optical is code for the phillips twin eye sensor
The RAT also uses a phillips twin eye sensor, which is confusingly called a LASER sensor along with the other different kind of laser sensors.

They should just call it a doppler sensor and end the confusion, IMO. It also has the benefit of sounding like some cool techno jargon.

Mamba 4G has a second optical sensor, though the specific technology isn't made for dedicated tracking.


You seem to still not to understand that Optical and Laser are nothing than how a product is illuminated regardless of technology behind it.

My solution is to just not call sensors by their illumination sources.

Does the second sensor on the mamba actually do anything? I'm told that it can calibrate the sensor to reduce liftoff distance, but the PTE sensor has something like a 2mm liftoff distance, so I'm not sure that it would do anything in practice.

I ordered a Rat7 earlier this month and I have a very love/hate relationship with it and am trying to decide whether or not to RMA it, I have two other mice in mind.

While it tracks okay it's very sensitive to dust and stuff in the optics, and sometimes I don't even know if it's anything in there, it just spazzes. I can't really put a frequency on it though, sometimes it happens often, and other times rarely.

Ergonomically it's great but the thumb rest is supposed to be adjustable, like on a hinge it swings in/out, but it doesn't lock into position well, in the fully out position, slight pressure will cause it to pop back to a sort of half-way position. The palm rest only seems to be usable in 3 of the 4 positions it has, in the 4th it always pops foreward ino the 3rd position some time during play.

It also has the issue with that slight twitch on pickup, but that's not a huge issue for me, just a minor annoyance to see.

Now given that it's $75 I feel that these little things just... well they shouldn't exist.

I know the G9x has great reviews, the big issue seems to be the mouse wheel pressure, but I rarely use mwheel click. How are the ergonomics? I don't have much of a grip preference, I can use palm, fingertip, and to some extent claw, as long as the mouse is comfortable in that position. My hands are medium (by Razer's standards they are exactly average measurements in all dimensions). How is the lift off distance? Is it significantly less susceptible to dust-in-lens syndrome, or is this something I can expect from most high-DPI modern mice?

The other one was the CM Storm Sentinel, anyone have any experience with this?

I have the same problems with my R.A.T. 7.

I'm looking at a Sensei, Deathadder or G400/500.

1. What's your grip style?

"Clawpaw" grip. Arm on table, palm sort of off the mouse, click with fingerprints.

2. What's your sensitivity?

5100dpi., 1440p, using a Logitech G500.

3. What's your maximum budget?

$1 billion.

4. Do you want additional buttons?

No interest

5. What games do you play?

FPS - BF3

6. Do you mind about prediction?

Yes, would prefer no prediction, no acceleration.

7. Other relevant information:

I really want a huge mouse that has a pinky holder. My G500 is great, but my pinky drags on my mouse-pad. I tried the Corsair M60 and it is way too small. I tried the CM Storm Sentinel Advanced II, and it wasn't wide enough.

I have experience with the Storm Sentinel II Advanced:

While the mouse works well, I couldn't get a comfortable grip. It felt too narrow. Also, the fit and finish of the mouse is kind of cheap and plastic.
