In mouseland... Choosing right one... [help]

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I want to buy new mouse, which will suit best my style. First of all I play most FPS games, (no rts, very very little mmorpg, and little of dota, lol). I like that palm grip, mouse that fills your hand. i was doing very detailed research, and some mice came to my mind, now It would be nice if you could tell me your opinions and advices. Here are some:

- SteelSeries Ikari Laser (If I buy this one, I will go with QcB pad without any further research)
- CoolerMaster Storm Sentinel Advanced Gaming mouse (This one looks amazing, it looks like bullseye for me)
- Razer DeathAdder (This one is very very popular, Razer has some great packaging, but I am not so attracted to Razer, because I have the feeling that I am paying more the box, stickers, manuals, and all those flashy things than the product it self [those expensive ones like Mamba and BW Ultimate are exception])

Any advice, opinion and experience is very welcome, thank you guys!

Have you looked into the RAT7? AMAZING mouse but quite pricy.

This is the link to all 3 models. I'd really recommend the Rat 7.

Edit: here's Newegg's review

Logitech G400/G500. G400 replaces the MX518, which is what I'm using and have been for years.
The build is great, and feel is fantastic. No need to install any software, just plug it in and your set. You can change the dpi on the mouse to suit your needs.

From somebody who has a medium-sized hand, I used the Mx518 for years and thought it was pretty good, had no complaints.

Picked up a DeathAdder because I had nothing better to do, and I soon gave the Mx518 to my sister.

A few weeks ago, I tried out the G400 (pretty much a 1:1 of the Mx518), and just couldn't go back to that. As far as I'm concerned, the DeathAdder is the best mouse I've ever used, both in form and function (no fancy-arse weight buttons or size adjustments).

Storm looks DAMN AMAZING!!!! Ikari feels amazing! Only thing that can decide is durability and build quality, anyone had or have any expirience with this mouse?

I wouldn't ever go for the CM storm sentinel. The ikari laser is quite nice but its an older design and the sensor has rather low malfunction speed. The DeathAdder gets my vote.

G500 all day every day. Logitech makes the most durable mice evar. I have a G5 that's lasting me over 6 years now. I have since moved up to a G500 and my G5 is now my laptop/travel mouse.

I do a strange hybrid between palming and fingering my mice, and i find this form factor perfect. I would classify my hands as medium to medium/large.

Hmm... I see... Ikari is a bit older... I see much love for G500... Logitech has some great durable and quality products... G500 is great mouse I have tried it few times... If Ikari and Razer fails me I wil go with it that is for sure, 'couse I hade few gaming nights with G500 and it is great mouse... One thing that concerns me with DA is that it is Razer product, and I saw some quiet unpleasent threads here about bad customer support and fragile products... :\\
