1. What's your grip style?
Mostly palm, sometimes claw
2. What's your sensitivity?
low to medium
3. What's your maximum budget?
$150
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Just 2 to 5 extra button should be sufficient
5. What games do you play?
GW2. SC2, LOL, Assasin's Creed, CS: GO
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not really.
7. Other relevant information:
I will use the mouse mostly for gaming ad I play GW2 the most. I do want a mouse with a cord. The current mice i'm looking into buying are the razer deathadder 3.5 with blue lighting vs logitech g400 vs logitech g500. Will probably need to get a mouse pad to since I just use a generic mouse pad. I'm looking into the razer team liquid mouse just because I watch a lot of SC2.
I'd go for the Kova+ actually, it's a small mouse (but not too small like the Orochi) and it has a good performing optical sensor. You also get the button duplicating easy shift so there's your extra buttons. It does have prediction though, but you said you don't mind it so that's fine.
Edit: Savu's a better choice then the Kova overall, but I'm worried that you'll find it too big. Look up the dimensions though and decide that for yourself. It's sensor is much better than the Kova's and it's built better too.

Well i have to say, that the Steelseries Kinzu V2 is a very good mouse, if you play at 800DPI which is enough for 1080p gaming
its very light and small as well, fit any normal hands, not big ones tho... i had the deathadder 3.5 and i was a pain in my hands after 1years using it (to big and heavy)
and all of that is gone after i got the Kinzu V2

i also threw an eye on the deathadder but i'm afraid the switches are to soft for me. can someone tell me how the click of a deathadder black adeition feels like compared to a g9 oder razer copperhead? just to get a slight idea.

Loving my Mionix Naos 5000, it feels very well built and the shape is almost perfect for my hand. It also works great at even the high DPI that I play at. biggrin.gif

I have a Savu and a Vespula dark mat due in on Saturday, might sneak it out of the box and use it before Christmas lol.

1. What's your grip style?
Claw

2. What's your sensitivity?
3k DPI

3. What's your maximum budget?
Preferably below 130.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes.

5. What games do you play?
LOL/SC2/FPS

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not sure what this means.

7. Other relevant information:
I've been using the Razer Naga Hex and the glossy grip is starting to make me a bit mad. It's terrible grip. I used to play MMOs so I liked the mechanical buttons, but now I mostly play LOL. I've been mainly looking at the Deathadder 2013, Kinzu, Kana, Sensei, and Ikari. Which of these are best for claw (and tracking)? I also use a Qck Heavy if that helps (Cloth Mousepad).

Also - I'm not sure I would miss the ring finger rest. I noticed after I went to the Hex that my comfort increased due to not having to hang my ring finger and pinky off the side.

1. What's your grip style?
Palm for day-to-day, Fingertip/almost claw but the fingers aren't as arched when there's action.

2. What's your sensitivity?
Medium; not quite sure. I'm at about 2400dpi, speed "2" with accel "1" for G500.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Will wait for sale, but <80CAD?

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes.

5. What games do you play?
GW2, L4D2, CS:GO, etc. Mix of most genres.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Don't think it matters too much to me. my own error > prediction

7. Other relevant information:
Been using a g500 and am quite happy with it, although the lazer positioning took a while to get used to. Its finally slowly dying and I want to try something new.
I think I prefer bigger mice, since the g500 is pretty comfortable for me. WMO is comfortable too. I like placing ring and little finger on the side of the mouse.

I've been thinking about the Zowie EC1 since it felt really comfortable through the plastic at the store. Roccat Savu is on sale too, but I'm afraid its a bit small.

Any ideas?

Right now I've got a Steel Series WoW Mouse (the first one) and I really like it (not love, but like) that is hooked up to my desktop. And I've got a couple of MX 518s that are wonderful--one for my laptop and another that I've got at work.

The thing I like about my WoW mouse is that it has so many buttons that are all programmable. I love that it's huge. I love the thumb rest. What I hate about it is that the metallic paint has worn off of where my pointer and index finger and now it's just the ugly bare white plastic. Also, the right mouse button randomly quit working from normal wear and tear 360 days (I don't get mad and beat on my peripherals and think it's just absurd that some people react that way (sorry if that offends anyone)). Luckily, it was still covered in the 1 year warranty. So the paint on the first one wore through within that 1 year, I've had the new replacement ever since and it looks much worse now (between the two I've had it since it first came out, I don't recall the specifiic date). I also don't like the d-pad for the thumb, I usually have all four directions programmed to the same thing since it's hard to get to the right one quickly when they're all attached. In that regard, I really like how the Steel Series Wow Cataclysm mouse has separate buttons for the thumb, but it's ridiculously expensive now as it's not manufactured and I don't want to buy it because I'm wary of the paint being super bad quality again.

I love my mx 518s, when I use them, I usually don't realize that I don't have all of the bonus buttons on it (though I refuse to use any mouse now with less than 5 buttons). Though I do notice it when I play WoW on my laptop. For the most part, I play more casual games when I'm on my laptop. Also, I haven't worn through the material on either of them and the I've had one for almost 10 years.

So that's my background, I'm looking into replacing my WoW mouse with something that still has extra buttons and doesn't have crappy (said mildly) paint. More info, the Razor Naga isn't an option because I don't want a num-pad under my thumb, I want the buttons laid out, and I like having buttons 4 and 5 at the top of the side--not up next to my index finger like the naga (I'm assuming those are button 4 and 5, I've only seen pictures).

So there's a bunch of information, let's see if you mouse gurus know of a solution that can satisfy my specific tastes.

1. What's your grip style? No idea. As I'm sitting here at my work on my mx 518 it feels like claw, but I doubt that's how I grip my wow mouse since it's so huge.

2. What's your sensitivity? 1600 dpi on my mx518 (its max) 3200 on wow mouse (its max) and I switch to min dpi when shooting at long range (but only for single player games, don't play shooter games online on my pc)

3. What's your maximum budget? negligible

4. Do you want additional buttons? most definitely

5. What games do you play? all kinds. for what the mouse matters for, mostly MMOs, RPGs, and uh, idk, a variety of FPS

6. Do you mind about prediction? don't even know what that is.

Hi all!

I'm looking for a new mouse for my PC. I don't play games but I use my computer quite a lot for work. I think all the mice I've bought in the last few years had to be trashed because the mouse wheel button became defective (it was either unresponsive or it double clicked).

Maybe my usage patterns are especially hard on that button, but to me, t looks like a lot of manufacturers put cheaper micro-switches for the middle click.

So, I'm looking for a mouse with a long lasting middle click micro-switch.

Preferably, this mouse would be wireless (with long battery life), under 60 $, somewhat small (claw grip) with an ambidextrous shape, and driverless. Everything else doesn't really matter... I just want a well-made, reliable mouse, with really durable micro-switches.

Any Ideas?

Currently using: Logitech G500

 


1. What's your grip style?
Claw / Palm hybrid. I grip with my fingers but part of my fingers / palm rest on the G500. More would rest if it was larger and didn't have as much of a drop on it's backside.

2. What's your sensitivity?
5600 DPI w/ minimum in-game sensitivity.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Doesn't matter


4. Do you want additional buttons?
I would like them, 3 at least; but they can be dropped if needed.

5. What games do you play?
CS:GO, Planetside 2, Tribes Ascend, and many single player games.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Hate it

7. Other relevant information:

I don't like ambidextrous mice

I like heavy mice
