Mouse Recomendations

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Recently my mouse has passed away, it was a faithful companion... we had saved the galaxy together many times, and sent a lot of emails too. It was the single most uncomfortable rodent i have ever had the misfortune of using. but int he same way. i kind of miss it!

There is part of me thinking i should just pick up a cheap £10 and be done with it, as if that dies its only £10.

At the same time i want csomething comfortable, with thumb-buttons and just generally nice.

I used an older Microsoft Sidewinder x5 (i think) and to be honest its kind of set me against the sidewinders. My Laptop had a Logitech MX Performance, this is the nuts. I love it, but cant justify another £70 on mice, and for my PC i would preffer cabled (i dont really know why...)

Could anyone recomend one for about the £30-£40 mark? My only criteria is that its comfortable and has the forward and back buttons under the thumb. If it matches the colour scheme of my Sidewinder x6 keyboard all the better!

I've heard that it's quite good for gaming and it has the forward and back buttons under the thumb. Logitechs customer support is excellent too!

Check out the CM Storm Spawn. I too used a Sidewinder X5 before upgrading to this and boy, what a difference. The shape and feel of the Spawn just fits into your hand. It has those forward and back buttons your looking for and i absolutely love the mouse. Check it out, it's affordable too.

I own this mouse, It's fantastic. Binding the forward thumb button for spotting and the rear one for stabbing in bad company two made this mouse awesome for me. Experiences may very, but Id recommend it. It is also quite sturdy.

I recommend either the DeathAdder or G400.

If you don't like prediction (even though the G400's prediction is not that great IMO) then get the DA.

If you don't mind prediction then I feel like the G400 is more comfortable than the DA.

Both are great mice and I am loving the G400 at the moment, can't find one bad thing to say about it.

probably a noob question, but what do you mean by prediction?

It'd Suggest u look at the Sticky on the Mouse forums its a very good and consise read:
http://www.overclock.net/mice/113975...ead-first.html
"Prediction
Prediction (aka Angle Snapping, Drift Control, Correction) helps you to draw straight lines: the mouse tracking corrects (removes) the minor deviations from your line, making it as straight as possible, up to certain threshold, which varies from mouse to mouse (some mouse has more prediction than others). Ideally, a mouse should have the option to turn off the prediction, but there are plenty of mice with inherent prediction that can't be turned off."

If u go through the sticky, u'll realise there's a number of grips, u have to assess which grip suits you and then going through the questions u can decide which is the better mouse.

Apart from what is being said, id suggest u go to a shop if u can were u can 'use' the mice to understand how well u can grip several mice and how they suit u (some shops have 'mice' on exhibition).

Isn't that one of those PTE sensor mice?
If so: avoid.
