Another "what mouse?" thread...lol

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok so my Razer Mamba is having issues and the rubberized coating is starting to come off the buttons. The issues I have are related to the cable, sometimes I have to mess with it to get it to work. Started recently and I am not going to solder it or anything like that.

1. What's your grip style?
Hrm, I'd say I use my fingertips. Always did for my FPS gaming, allows faster movement for me.

2. What's your sensitivity?
Wow, um does "I dunno." count? Seriously I have my Mamba on 3000dpi. I find it ok, but I have no idea if I could adjust to more or less. I was fine here so I left it alone lol.

3. What's your maximum budget?
None really. Just want it to be good quality and last with as few issues as possible.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
I like having the two side buttons for use and reload or similar. I don't want an RTS or MMO mouse with 100 buttons please.

5. What games do you play?
FPS, some single player RPGs like Oblivion (Skyrum at release), Dragon Age.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
If it doesn't affect the gameplay then no

7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.
I do not like heavy mice really. I don't want logitech (had a few before and was never really happy). Don't need any fancy macros or profiles etc. Never really used them.

Thanks. There's just too many mice out there and I cannot try them all locally.
Bang!

Well,

Do you like optical or laser? i think it's an essential question...
But i think most people will tell you deathadder... i'm a bit confused btw if i get an DA or a G400 (out of the question for you since you dont like Logitech hardware )

I've got a Deathadder and I think it's one of the best mice in it's price category. The only thing I don't like about it is the front-most button on the left hand side, which is a bit awkward to reach if you don't hold the mouse fully with your palm (i tend to have a claw like grip). Other than that it is fairly precise and it looks pretty cool too.

Seems like the sensei isn't as well received as the reviews would have you believe. issues with the sensor? It actually seems like every single mouse that has potential to be any good has issues lol.

Well, been looking more and I don't know if Logitech would be so bad. I found their buttons to be sub-par in the past (they feel gummy or have a lot of movement needed to register a click). Maybe that's not the case these days.

So assuming I am ok with Logitech as a choice...does that open up any options?
