post #871 of 6260
I currently have the MX518 and the left click button is making weird noises (sometimes). It still works but its almost 7 years old.

I'm looking to replace it. I love my MX518 and was looking into the G400 or the G500.

I play BF3 and regular surfing the internet (forums, Facebook, ect)

What's the difference between the G400 and the G500? Worth the $10 difference in price?

Thanks

Get the G400, if you liked the MX518; the G500 has acceleration.

1. What's your grip style?
Claw.
2. What's your sensitivity?
My current Logitech wireless mouse has 1800dpi sensor, so anything better would be a great improvement I guess?
3. What's your maximum budget?
No budget really, but I'd prefer to spend something around the $50 point so I can get myself some nice Steam games with the Christmas money I got! biggrin.gif
4. Do you want additional buttons?
Yes.
5. What games do you play?
Anything really but FPS's and RTS's make up a majority. No MMOs.
6. Do you mind about prediction?
Wat.


I'd like a mouse to last be for as long as possible and look nice as well! biggrin.gif

Get a Logitech G400, Roccat Savu, Zowie EC Evo or AM. Also, more DPI is not better; it causes more jitter and only serves to allow you to increase the sensitivity without the mouse skipping; if you have a reasonable sensitivity, you should be able to keep the mouse below 1800 DPI.

+1 and I would add DeathAdder 2013, Krait 2013, CM Storm Recon/Spawn to the list.

I wouldn't recommend any 2013 mice, personally; they might have some issues that are yet to be resolved. I've also heard some people claiming that the CM storm spawn have issues with jitter.

I haven't noticed any jitter issues with my Spawn with FW61.

I've been using an intellimouse explorer 3.0 for 5 years and I think it's about time to find a new mouse since I've only got 2 left and one is starting to go. Ideally I'd want a mouse that performs the same or better with extra buttons and better build quality.

1. What's your grip style?

palm/fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?

~20 inches/51 centimeters for a 360

3. What's your maximum budget?

~$60

4. Do you want additional buttons?

yes

5. What games do you play?

mostly planetside 2, some RTS and turn based strategy games.

6. Do you mind about prediction?

don't like it

7. Other relevant information:

sensor needs to track well on multicolored surface (allsop raindrop)

low lift off distance is very important

my hands are ~7 inches/18 cm long

I'd prefer no drivers or being able to save the settings to the mouse then uninstall them

not a deathadder, i had one of the original ones and didn't like it, the newer ones my brother has had are even worse. I had tracking problems during fast motions and the lift off was too high. Also, the scroll wheel was not good.

needs a durable and precise scroll wheel.
