[Official] The Mouse Suggestion Thread - Page 10

post #91 of 6173
A bout a year ago, I bought an Alienware TactX mouse on sale. It's essentially the same mouse as the Logitech G9x. Unfortunately, in the last month or so my mouse has started to disconnect and then reconnect. After a bit of experimenting, I realized that the cable was coming loose inside the mouse and then reconnecting during certain movements. So, with Christmas coming up, I'm in the market for a new mouse. I know I'd be perfectly happy with the same product again, but I worry about the durability (after this one's crapped out) and I'm interested in seeing if another product would be better for the price. So, hit me with your recommendations!

1. What's your grip style?

Mostly fingertip with a bit of lean towards palm

2. What's your sensitivity?

Not sure. I usually use the 2nd or 3rd setting on my mouse, so around 3000?

3. What's your maximum budget?

Probably $80, since that's what the G9x would cost

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Eh. I hardly ever use the extra buttons on my current one, so it's not that important. It's a bonus though I suppose

5. What games do you play?

Mostly FPS, currently BF3, but I dabble in everything. Skyrim is my big one at the moment.

6. Do you mind about prediction?

Not even sure if my current mouse has it. I'd like a mouse that performs like my current one since I'm used to it, though I suppose I could adjust.

7. Other relevant information:

I do a lot of programming if that make any difference. I also don't care about wireless vs wired, but my desktop doesn't have bluetooth.

1. What's your grip style? Claw grip with the heel of my palm as a base on the desktop, with my thumb+ring+pinky moving the mouse. I have wide though short hands, so excessivly long mice are out. Currently using a Razer DeathAdder V2, which fits quite well but I'd like something that has a bit of thumb/pinky support.

2. What's your sensitivity? Anywhere between 800 - 2000, or the ability to be turned down to this sensitivity range.

3. What's your maximum budget? If the shoe fits...

4. Do you want additional buttons? At least 1 thumb button, and nothing on the pinky side. I don't like mice with over the top amounts of buttons.

5. What games do you play? Mostly FPS, some RPG. I also occasionally do 3D modelling.

6. Do you mind about prediction? Prefer none, though mice where this feature can be turned off are fine. If it fits all the other criteria then this feature being included could be forgiven.

7. Other relevant information:
Overall aesthetics come 2nd for me, comfort and functionality are king. A wireless mouse would be nice, but not essential as long as the cord is braided (not stiff plastic). Also a mouse with quality drivers and config software, or good driverless performance - no bloat/crapware.

1. What's your grip style?

Usually Palm grip. I loved the intellimouse 3.0 and the deathadder, but both mice had build qualties that left a lot to be desired.
However, I have been using a spare WMO and I'm beginning to get used to it, but the comfort is just not quite as nice for me as a palm grip mouse.

2. What's your sensitivity?

Around 25cm/360

3. What's your maximum budget?

Around £50

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Preferably yes. It's nice to have a side button on my mouse for push-to-talk.

5. What games do you play?

FPS games only.

6. Do you mind about prediction?

Not really. Have tried out some MX518s and they feel fine to play with.

7. Other relevant information:

Would like the mouse to last more than 6 months.

I've owned a MX518 1600DPI version for quite a while now. It still works and hasn't failed, but just want something more sensitive and new.

1. What's your grip style?
Alternate between fingertip and palm

2. What's your sensitivity?
1600 (too low for me)

3. What's your maximum budget?
$100 or less preferred. But $150 max

4. Do you want additional buttons?
I just use one additional for in-game talk, but could find use for more

5. What games do you play?
CSS and that is it. lol

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Not really.

7. Other relevant information:
I don't care about much else really. Using this on a SteelSeries pad if that matters? I played with my buddies RAT7 which I found nice, but as I understand that sensor has some sort of issue as well as they are plastic and tend to break?

1. What's your grip style? Claw grip, with use of thumb and ring finger for movement.

2. What's your sensitivity? 1800

3. What's your maximum budget? $70

4. Do you want additional buttons? Back / Forward would be nice.

5. What games do you play? MOBO, MMO, with a little FPS on the side.

I was initially going to purchase a DeathAdder v2, but I've read too many conflicting reports about what grip it's optimal for. Also the somewhat cheap feel / look of the DeathAdder scroll wheel.

What's your grip style?

Palm / Fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?

High, 360 in a wrist snap

3. What's your maximum budget?

No max

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Don't need any additional buttons

5. What games do you play?

Starcraft 2 and other RTS, Counter-Strike, Tribes, Quake 3, League of Legends and Dota 2, Skyrim and Witcher 2

6. Do you mind about prediction?

No prediction! The thing I care about most in a mouse is response time and precision/accuracy. All of the laser mice seem to have a delay that prevents me from being able to commit to using them in close range combat. Using most mice aside from the 3.0, it reminds me of the delay of using an LCD screen. (I still use my old 19" CRT.)

7. Other relevant information:

Own an intellimouse 3.0 (gaming version).
Tried switching to mx518, but couldn't keep using it. This was due to the prediction which I noticed while moving the mouse slowly it moved in a perfectly straight line.
Tried deathadder, but couldn't keep using it. Couldn't get used to the feel of the mouse. It seemed to be slightly delayed (very slightly) compared to intellimouse.
Tried switching to mamba, but couldn't stick to it. Worse than deathadder, tried every setting of DPI.
Tried switching to imperator 2012, but couldn't stick to it. It felt awesome and it tracks well, but theres still a delay. There seems to be this kind of delay on all razer mice.

After all that and I'm back to the intellimouse 3.0, but now the mouse1 seems to be breaking after 4 years. Help!
Do any of the new mice out by zowie or steelseries or even logitech fit me? I am looking for the absolute fastest response time from movement to onscreen movement, im looking for a mouse that doesnt backlog movement like razer mice seem to. I am also looking for high tracking speed.

1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?
I want the cursor to move fast compared to the movement of the mouse.

3. What's your maximum budget?
$70

4. Do you want additional buttons?
nope

5. What games do you play?
Crysis, DIRT etc. I also want to use the mouse to be great for browsing etc.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I don't know.

7. Other relevant information:
Very important: it has to be ambidextrous.
Nice to have: suitable on every surface (no need for a mousepad).


I was thinking about a Logitech LS1, but it´s so cheap, it can´t be good biggrin.gif

Hello there! I am looking to buy a new mouse since the wheel on my current mouse broke today...
Which is unfortunate, but maybe it's better to get a new one because I had this mouse for 1 year and a half.

My grip style is fingertip. I don't think sensitivity is important to me, my current mouse has 3600 DPI i think but i only use 800. I don't want the mouse to be expensive, for example the sensei is pretty much over my budget, but the spawn or kinzu v2 is ok.
Laser vs optical... I'm not that sure honestly. I have a laser mouse with cypress ovation sensor on a cloth pad and even though it skips sometimes i still can play good, even owned a couple of times. From what i read on the forums optical is better but i honestly don't know if laser will bother me.

I want a reliable mouse that can go on for quite some time without breaking (which is why i rather you guys not recommend me Razer...) and with some additional buttons.
I use a cloth pad.
I usually play shooters and League of legends.

So which mouse to get?

And happy New Year!
