What mouse should I get?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I'm getting a new mouse soon as my current mouse, my trusty IE3.0, is dying on me.
The right-click seems to double click 60% of the time now so I guess it's time to say goodbye to my IE3.0.

I'm looking for a mouse which has no prediction and it must be light, as I'm a low sensitivity player.

I tried the G500 (too heavy, even without weights), DA BE (bad QC, rubber coating wears out within a week), Xai (positive acceleration ruins everything especially at low sensitivity where I have to swipe my mouse across my mousepad frequently), DA 3.5G (glossy sides deter me from lifting up my mouse to reposition it properly), and CM Spawn (ugly, looks cheap due to the colour combination IMO).
And in the end, yeap, I went back to my IE3.0.
Seems like there's no other mice in the market that can outperform the IE3.0 IMO. ~.~

I'm considering the Naos 3200 (not 5000 due to the sensor, and I'm not sure about the weight of it as well), wait for the Steelseries Kinzu v2 or Kana, or I would just get another IE3.0. Are there any other mice in the market that suits my preferences? Which would be a better option?

The G400 is a lighter version of the G500, a few layout differences (which aren't bad at all).

I don't know about the G500 you tested, but I have 2 of them and I don't feel any rubber coating. Either they're already worn out, or there wasn't any rubber coating to begin with.

Perhaps I might get a CM Xornet. It's the colour combination on the spawn that makes it look cheap and ugly IMO.

Personally, im finding the Gigabyte M8000x to be a superb mouse. Not too heavy, not too light, excellent grip, sensitive clicks instead of super resistant clicks, and it seems to track very nicely even on just a normal desk surface.

Only downside to this mouse is that it NEEDS a hard style mat due to the way it's skates are designed. They clip on cloth ones as they drag along them, and it moves fairly slowly on them too.

It just FLYS on hard surfaces tho! Love this thing, lol. Works amazingly well for SC2.

May wanna give it a try. :>

G400 and MX518 barely has any prediction, and you can barely even notice it. I'd look into the EC1 though.

Thanks for the suggestions. Will look into the EC1 as well. Not very sure about the M8000X because of it's sensor, and the G400 because of the software jitter issue.

Did you dump it in a tub of acid or something? I've had mine since release and it looks exactly the same as when I bought it.
