The Naga doesn't have dynamic dpi scaling. You must be confusing it with another mouse.

Otherwise the deathadder looks like a good mouse as well from what I have seen of it.
The DeathAdder is actually optical, so yes, all of Razer's laser mice seem to have this issue, and laser sensors in general all have flawed tracking at the moment.

I could recommend plenty of other mice, but you'll have to be more specific as to what you're looking for. The DeathAdder 2013 is possibly the best overall gaming mouse at the moment, but the G400 is probably the best bang for your buck.

apparently my naga hex does have dynamic dpi scaling, maybe they removed it in the new naga 2013, don't know smile.gif
post #913 of 6215
Probably a software issue then. I'm on my second Naga (Molten), which I use without software. Both have always been at 1800 DPI with flawless X/Y axis tracking.

1. What's your grip style?

From most pics I would say Fingertip. It's similar to palm, but not fully committed. When the gaming gets really intense, my fingers arch up even more. Does anyone actually use one grip at all times?

2. What's your sensitivity?

I currently play at 1000dpi, but I'm pretty sure that's my mouse's default for High setting, so I've just become used to that setting

3. What's your maximum budget?

All suggestions welcome

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Yes, but not too many on the side. I've recently tried the Logitech g600 and it was not for me. I couldn't really grip the mouse without hitting thumb buttons nor could I quickly decipher between the buttons. So, two minimum, but others would be welcome if they are out of the way of grip, yet intelligently placed for regular usage. I also tried the g700 and found the 4 thumb buttons terribly "mushy" to press and an absolute horrible button configuration. Two buttons where you can rock your thumb easily between the two is what I'm used to. The new Func Mouse side buttons pique my interest a bit with their placement.

5. What games do you play?

I play all kinds, but as of late, WoW has been the mainstay. I do enjoy twitch shooters like quake 3, but I just don't play them as much as WoW. I brought the SteelSeries WoW mouse home once to give it a spin and it felt like a huge piece of junky plastic. It just felt so cheap.

6. Do you mind about prediction?

I'm not sure I know what prediction is, but it sounds like the mouse controlling me, where I like to be in control of my mouse? I'm not sure I would know it if it was happening, though maybe I would.

7. Other relevant information:

I have been using an Ikari Laser for almost 4 years now? I think. It's been a long time, regardless. I have honestly loved the mouse. It's responsiveness, ergonomic form factor and button "click" quality have all been strong throughout my rigorous usage. I work on my pc and game on my pc a lot, so I'm pretty sure I've abused the mouse well beyond the "normal usage" level. The only issue I've ever had with it since day one, was an occasional "spinout" or odd direction my camera would instantly do in 3d game environments. It didnt happen often and I always just assumed it was something I was doing, between the pad, lifting the mouse, etc. Anyhow, It wasn't until about a year ago that I started getting effects from the wear and tear and I started to experience double clicking on lt mouse and a sticking rt mouse button.

This brings me to now. My wife got me a g700 for my bday and I was instantly turned off by the button feel and configuration of the thumb buttons. Not to mention that the scroll wheel was way too loose even when in click mode. So I instantly sent it back. Due to my high amount of MMO play, I've always wanted to try and MMO mouse so the g600 caught my eye. Now once it came, I wanted to love it soo bad. It looked and felt great, seemed incredibly well built, but for the life of me, I couldn't quit accidentally pressing the ring finger g-shift which I'm used to gripping my mouse with that finger. Also, the thumb buttons just weren't great either. I have a need in game to quickly use thumb buttons without any error in pressing other buttons. I could tell this wasn't going to be an option with the g600. My last gripe was with the Thumb buttons and Gshift, there just wasn't a solid place to actually grip the mouse. So I sent it back.

I've been looking at the Deathadder 2013, Mionix Naos 8200?, Razer Imperator, and recently a friend showed me the Func marketing vid for their new mouse. I've contemplated just getting a new Ikari, but I think, and please correct me if I'm wrong, Steelseries is discontinuing the Ikari line? They aren't in stock and I've seen certain sites mark them as discontinued. Anyhow, thanks for reading my ramblings and any help is appreciated.

youre right about the grip, people switch there grip most of the time, I am a claw grip but when I am browsing a lazy palmer tongue.gif

But difficult after youre whole story to advise you a mouse, you say you have a fingertip grip but the ikari is really really a palm grip gamer mouse.
So I am guessing you should more take a look at the following mice,

Razer Deathadder,
Logitech g400,
Zowie AM,

In that order wink.gif

But hey why dont you order just a new Ikari.
You know what you will get and there not expensive at least not in my country.

Hi,

since my last mouse was killed last night by my gfs electro-shock touch superpower (I know right? - lmb stopped working, had to remap one of the thumb buttons for that. quick tip - standard mouse layout was made by people with brains™), I've decided to look for a new critter. to make the long story short, here's the Q/As

1. What's your grip style?
This one's tricky, i think I'm using fingertip grip most of the time

2. What's your sensitivity?
not sure about actual DPI numbers but i use really low in-game sensitivities and tend to move my mouse rapidly over long distances.

3. What's your maximum budget?
well, the less the better, kinda broke atm and can't wait long for paychecks (no mouse..), 50$ would be pefect.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Definitely yes, 3 extras beyond the standard lmb/rmb/scroll

5. What games do you play?
mostly some action mmos c9/vindictus/tf2 etc

6. Do you mind about prediction?
in a perfect world - I'd like a mouse without prediction, but it's not a high priority.

7. Other relevant information:
performance-wise the absolutely best mouse I've ever played with was Logitech MX300 (I'm speaking about high malfunction speed/perfect control speed). Otoh i loved button layout on A4tech X7. If there's anything that combines these two qualities, I'd love to lay my hand(s) on it.

One more thing, I prefer matt/rubber finish, feels less slippery, but again - not a high priority.

Thanks in advance.

Logitech G400 fits all your criteria. 3600 DPI, flawless tracking, no prediction, 5 extra buttons, rubber coating, priced at 50 USD but Amazon is selling it for $34 at the moment.

Thanks for the quick answers guys,

checking benchmarks/reviews on these, the g400 looks really promising.
