1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?
5000+ dpi, I only move with my wrist so sensitive is good

3. What's your maximum budget?
BRING IT!

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Only the forward and back buttons on the inside of the mouse

5. What games do you play?
CS:S

6. Do you mind about prediction?
No idea?

Basically looking for the best mouse possible for CSS I've been using a RAT 7 for about a year and it feels nice but the sensor is on the verge or earning it a one way trip out my window so I need something better. I like heavy mice.

Thanks for any help.

Check out the ZOWIE EC1/EC2 series, or wait for the new ZOWIE AM which is more of an ambidextrious mouse. Also Razer Deathadder is a pretty popular choice. the EC and DA mice both hold the design and shape of the classic Microsoft 3.0, which is ergonomic, form-fitting and has the forward/back side buttons for the thumb

1. Whats your grip style?
Switch between fingertip/palm.

2. Whats your dpi?
I use different dpis from 800-1050 or so.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Don't care about budget so much.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes!

5. What games do you play?
TF2/SC2.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Would prefer no prediction.


I've used the MX518/G500 mice to death, had to RMA the G500 twice already, I will do so again but intend to sell the one they send me.

I'm happy with the shape/feel of both, maybe with a slight preference to the MX518 but am hoping theres something else people can recommend me other than the G400 as I like the extra features of the G500 (hyperscroll, dpi indicator and extra buttons). I'd also prefer an optical sensor as I'm somewhat blaming the laser sensor of the G500 for the RMAs I've had to go through with mine. Build quality/durability is very important to me, as is ease of RMA.

What do you guys recommend? The other mice I was looking at before, perhaps a year or so ago were the Deathadder and CM Sentinel Advance, hesitant to go with the Deathadder as I've heard that they die quickly and Razer aren't so good with returns.

Too lazy to read a million reviews or trawl forums for user experiences again tongue.gif

1. What's your grip style?
Hybrid palm/claw

2. What's your sensitivity?
Currently use Sidewinder X5 maxed at 2000 DPI, which is not enough for me. Windows mouse speed is set to max and I always increase sensitivity in games quite a bit over default, so I like high sensitivity. I never tried it but would probably like 3000-3500 DPI, maybe even higher.

3. What's your maximum budget?
$80 (USD)

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Minimum of 2 thumb buttons, maybe would like more if they were convenient to use.

5. What games do you play?
L4D(2), Portal 2, Dragon Age, Assassin's Creed

6. Do you mind about prediction?
No idea, but I like accuracy so I would imagine no prediction is preferred.

7. Other relevant information:
My hands are of average size but I like a large mouse, specifically with a large bump at the base for the palm. I would prefer something with the bump larger than the Sidewinder X5 but could live with the same. I would also prefer that the mouse weigh more than my current one. Finally, my hands are prone to sweating so rubber would probably feel unpleasant.

1. What's your grip style?
between fingertip and palm(alternates from time to time)

2. What's your sensitivity?

3. What's your maximum budget?
nothing crazy 50-$60 tops but prefer it to stay a lot less than that if possible
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Although i plan on gaming and have the rig for it, i have never games with a mouse with more than two buttons i am open to it for sure but nothing crazy

5. What games do you play?
cs... plan on playing more just school, work, and fam has been taking up ALL my time.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
not sure, i read what that meant, not to sure.

7. Other relevant information:
All i have ever used is a stock mouse from hp... so i have definately been missing out. I LOVE the look of that Shogun Bros x-1 red but i don't care for the controller on the bottom, and i rather have a cord (don't want to replace batteries) Looks is a plus. I also need a mouse pad. i was reading a post by another user that was interested in a mouse pad with stitching rather than without. not sure why but i saw a link to this http://www.amazon.com/Mionix-Sargas-360-Mouse-Pad/dp/B0041SNBXA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1321731060&sr=8-2 nothing fancy and definately affordable... any suggestions against it or perhaps for something else?

Thanks

High CPI player...
The Steelseries sensei is your actual best choice. I don't reccommend going any further than 5670 CPI on that since further are interpolated settings.

1. What's your grip style?
hybrid palm/claw. my finger dosent arc above the mouse by too much. there is just enough space for me to insert my index finger from my non-mouse hand in between my index finger and mouse

2. What's your sensitivity?
Never tried using a gaming mouse before.

3. What's your maximum budget?
$70

4. Do you want additional buttons?
A few is prefered but not too many <5

5. What games do you play?
DoTa, LoL and some rpgs

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Whats this?

7. Other relevant information:
Intending to use with Goliathus. Currently using a Logitech BT96a

I am undecided between the deathadder and G400 and G300. I kinda like the shape of the G300 but the buttons at the top of the mouse kinda turn me off the mouse. I tried the g400 and it seems that if i use a palm grip, my fingers extend over the mouse and my forth and fifth finger is placed kinda uncomfortably.
post #80 of 6207
1. What's your grip style? Palm, I think, maybe some claw? I usually rest my palm on the mouse, though.

2. What's your sensitivity? Used to playing at 800-1800.

3. What's your maximum budget? 80$

4. Do you want additional buttons? They can help, but aren't a necessity.

5. What games do you play? MMORPGs, Skyrim, intend to play Diablo...

6. Do you mind about prediction? Haven't used a mouse with it to know for sure.

7. Other relevant information: I like the possibility of a wireless mouse.

I have owned several mouses, but am always at a loss when looking for a new one. I have had a: Deathadder (gen 1), Performance MX and a Razer Abyssus, most recently. One issue that bothers me a bit is when the rubber gets sticky (caused by grime maybe?) - I would like to avoid that if possible (of course, if there is a way to avoid it in other mouses..).

I also have no idea if a decent mouse pad makes any difference for the games I do play - I currently use a very simple generic one.
