Deathadder black edition (I could not claw grip mine)
Roccat savu
none have a sniper button, though. If you want one, you could go with the RAT 7, but it has some reliability issues.

The driver of Savu let you configure buttons to sniper button, so it's good. I'm sure drivers from some of these mice let you configure sniper button as well (I can't tell coz I haven't used them)

Hi, I'm looking for some more info on this mouse
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826254090

What sensor does it have?
Are there any noticeable bugs?
how good is it for Low Sens usage?

What kind of surfaces would be recommended for it,
i plan on buying a aluminum pad, just not sure how color would effect tracking.

Thanks.

Theron uses Avago A9500 laser sensor, any black hard pad should be good, and even cloth pads should work just fine (perhaps with lowered malfunction speed).

My G500 with the same sensor works well on a coated (black) aluminum pad.

Thanks.
Was hoping it wouldn't have any problems with a black aluminum pad. smile.gif

Just curious are there any other Mice you'd recommend around the same price.
Here's what I'm looking for:

1. What's your grip style?
Palm.
My hands actually sitting on the desk most of the time right now, since my mouse is too small.

2. What's your sensitivity?
usually low, but I'm not sure what my current mouses DPI is, i know its only 150Hz pole-rate though.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Trying to keep it around 30$, though maybe 50$ max

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes 2 or more.

5. What games do you play?
Everything, FPS mostly though, CS:S, CS:GO. mostly twitch shooters.

6. Do you want prediction?
Yes if its toggle-able, no if not.

7. Other relevant information:
I need something with some weight, Sturdy, wont break from a little rough usage. Customizable macros, colors and settings if possible.
something that looks cool would be nice, shaped similar the Theron, or Abyssus Mirror.

I've never really had a good looking mouse, which is why i really want to get one, and my current mouse is finally dieing.

1. What's your grip style?
Depends on the situation, claw-clawpalm

2. What's your sensitivity?
Windows is 9/11

3. What's your maximum budget?
N/A

4. Do you want additional buttons?
I at least want 2 thumbs, DPI switch.

5. What games do you play?
Lately, RPG and MMO, FPS is making a comeback. Alot of history in twitch shooters.

6. Do you want prediction?
I usually turn stuff like this off, but if it works, it works.

7. Other relevant information:
I had a G5 with an iCEMAT for years, it started having random issues so I caught a R.A.T. 7 on sale. I didn't hate it, but my palm rested on the mousepad and would get sweat on it that would mess up the sensor, so I picked up a Goliathus and it got better. I always felt that I'd rather go back to something more G5-esque.

As for my grip, I switch mostly just for fps, I stop palming as much, otherwise I palm more often than not.

G5-esque shape = G500. It also has a better sensor than that in G5 (except some people complain that it has random acceleration - not a concern unless you play fps games).

Also, I suggest that you turn your windows pointer speed to 6/11 and increase your DPI to your required speed instead. This avoids interpolated mouse path.

I forgot to point out that my R.A.T. 7 got ate by a cat. I'm using a $5 generic mouse at the moment, that's why my sensitivity is up, I can't even adjust dpi.

Like I said for gaming, I'm starting to get back into FPS, so what exactly is this random acceleration issue? Is it as simple as it sounds? I never really thought about acceleration in respect to a mouse before.

It's like if your DPI is 1000, and you move at various speed for 1 inch, the output would be different... say
0.5m/s -> 980
1m/s -> 1000
1.5m/s -> 1010
2m/s -> 1050
2.5m/s -> 1020

That's just a illustration of the "random acceleration" issue, not any scientific data. Moreover, I have no method to verify this problem, it's just something people on this forum believe that it exists.

What it affects - say when you turn 180 degree in one swipe to aim someone, that small discrepancy might make you miss a head in the first swipe.

It has acceleration; this is a fact. It is somewhere around 5% acceleration, which will only be noticed by low sensitivity fans.

If you want no acceleration, you will have to go for an optical mouse or phillips twin eye sensor mouse.

My recommendations for optical mice are:
either of the mice by Zowie
Logitech G400
Deathadder
Roccat Savu

For a Phillips twin eye sensor, you can either go for some of the expensive razer mice or the RAT 7.
