Wireless Mouse for Gaming

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Games played : Battlefield Series, Call of Duty Series ( FPS mostly )
Weight : I want it light , not heavy with batteries

looking for a wireless mouse, if a wired usb mouse is a better choice due to the better signal, then please do change my mind and suggest wired mouses.

i'm choosing wireless because i dont want friction caused by the mouse cable rubbing against other things as i slide my mouse across my mouse pad. and my tower is like 6ft away. not counting the turns and angles it must go through.

my budget is : $100 (not including tax + shipping)

recent mouse : Logitech MX518
previous : Wolfking Trooper

Wired is superior in every aspect from response to weight. Find yourself a mouse bungee if the wire bothers you.

There are 1000 threads on mouse recommendations so I won't bother putting one here.

Microsoft Sidewider X8 is a nice little cordless mouse...and works corded too so if the battery starts to die you can just plug it in and keep going. Though I ussually run it with the cord attached anyway. I got mine for much less than $100.

didnt need your 2 cents in this thread either. if i wanted to look through 1000 threads searching for what fits my criteria i'd be doing it for a week.

im looking for suggestions of what other people are using and their experiences with their mouses and what they use it for, to pick my mouse.

hmm the sidewider x8 looks a little tacky =P . now does the Logitech G9X beat that mouse? due to the wired mouse.

The Logitech G9X will beat the Sidewinder.

Have you tried the DeathAdder? It is a very very good mouse. It is made for palm/claw for medium to large hands. Plus, the sensor is one of the best since there is no acceleration whatsoever and is accurate as a bugger. I have it, I should know

I tried getting the G700, a wireless gaming mouse, but I preferred the DA alot more. The DA goes up to 3500 DPI. The cable is pretty long as well. The cable also isnt bad as it is sleeved with fabric and is pretty good.

IMO, wireless is BS for gaming, feels like a cheap 5€ Mouse @not even 125hz.

I would recommend you to go wired and optical, for example the Deathadder, EC1 or a MX518 again.

Just 2 cents from a competitive BF Player.

I use a Logitech M705 Marathon Mouse, best mouse I have used in a while, and I used to have a Razor Deathadder 3.5G.

he does not care about this opinion. And for a fact i can feel no difference between my MX518 and my mamba OR my G700 in wired or wireless mode.


OP, as I said above; I have a G700 and a mamba, both of which are near your pricerange (mamba on sale?, G700 is around $100.), but are great mice, which can both be used in wired mode if your batteries die which is extremely useful since during gaming wireless mice batteries do not last very long.

A friend of mine had a sidewinder as well and he loved it too, I thought it felt kinda funky but it wasn't too bad control wise.

Yeah, I'd take a G9X over a sidwider too...but the Sidewider can be cordless if you want it to be and it isn't too bad. The only thing I don't like about it is the scroll wheel is really made for traction...it is a metal gear basically. I actually have developed a slight calus on my index finger from it. Other than that...I put them about them equal as far as response time...wired or not. I have larger than average hands and it fits my claw nicely and the thumb buttons are perfectly placed.
