Need New Gaming Mouse

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello people, I'm starting this thread basically because of what the title says. I'm pretty much using generic mice now, because, here, where I live, gaming mice are quite expensive. I'm going to the USA today so one of the things I wanted to buy was a gaming mouse.
Here is where I need some help. I really don't know much about gaming mice, other than the razer ones, so if you could recommend some for me to buy, that'd be great.
I'm also looking for a gaming keyboard, and I don't want to be spending a lot more than $150 for both (keyboard and mouse).
I think this is implied, but I'll be using the mouse and keyboard mostly for gaming, so I'd like them to fit accordly to that role.
Thanks

Are you looking for wired or wireless? in the category of wired Cyborg RAT 7, Razer Lachesis V2, Razer Naga (if you need lots of macro buttons). These are all very good mice, I personally don't much like the naga as it is not the most attractive mouse and 18 macro buttons seems a bit excessive. For wireless the RAT 9 and Naga wireless look to be two of the best. I can't really help in the category of keyboards.

If you want a cheap but comfortable and smooth mouse with an awesome keyboard then buy a Razer Abyssus mouse and Razer Blackwidow Mechanical keyboard. I have both and they both function really well.

If you don't want the Abyssus then the DeathAdder is supposed to be good, but I can't recommend anything more expensive for you budget for keyboard + mouse.

I use the G500 mouse and the G510 keyboard. I love them both! they keyboard can be had for 80 to 100 bucks, and the mouse can be had for 30-50 bucks in the state's. G400 is a nice mouse too.

Oh I'm sorry, I forgot to mention, I actually prefer wired mice and KB, since the fact of recharging the battery and all that kind of annoys me. And I also heard that wireless mice aren't as responsive as wired, though I'm not entirely sure about that.

EDIT:
I don't need many macro buttons, I don't even know if I need them at all tongue.gif

G400 + Logitech keyboard/Razer Blackwidow would fit your budget nicely. You can even get a mechanical keyboard + G400 if you can find some.

Consider the Mionix Naos 3200. It's an easy to transition to gaming mouse - simple, ergonomic (right-handed only), not complicated to use. Although I suppose you do have to download the driver and run it (once). I recommend a setting of 1600 dpi if you try one out. If you'd like to know more, I wrote a review on this site. Edit: apparently the '1' to the left next to reviews is a link.

P.S. Basically all 'gaming' mice should be wired.
