Razer Diamondback 1600 question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have been going through mice looking for something that I am comfortable with and have yet to find something I like.

Games I play: Starcraft2, Fable, Bastion, Metro 2033.

I have small hands and use a hybrid claw/palm grip (palm on back of mouse, but fingers bowed to sides and buttons).

Mice I have tried:
Razer Naga - too tall for how short it is
Wheel mouse optical 1.1
Wheel mouse optical 3.1
Microsoft sidewinder (the original one) - I liked this one, but too big.
Microsoft wireless 3000
Razer Abyssus.

This leads me to my question. I am currently looking at getting a Zowie MiCO, but stopped by a local computer repair shop in town while waiting for my pizza, and he had a brand new in box Razer Diamondback 1600dpi optical mouse for $29. Is this something I should even consider trying?

This one: Razer Diamondback

Seeing as how they're discontinued, it's worth a shot. You'll probably never see another one again and many owners express their grief or want for another mouse like it when theirs dies after 4~ years or something.

That mouse shape was great. Honestly don't know why they don't use it anymore. So damn natural..
