I have $60 for a mouse... - Page 3

post #21 of 39
Deathader is comfortable But I wouldnt recommend it if your playing on high sen for like bf3 or something. The sensor perfect but If you dont have the reaction and the right handle it annoying. Try looking at the steelseries sensei i prefer it shape more since it supports all grip styles

Thread Starter 
People are forgetting with the mice they're suggesting...Cannot be greater than $60. I'm not buying a $79 or $89 mouse. As much as they may be good suggestions, I'm disregarding them as soon as I see the price.

OT: Deathadder is $45 and has great reviews, but on the G500, is the left click problem very well ubiquitous? I'm a little bit pushed away by the "constant breaking." Is it really that common?

Sometimes I get that funny feeling when people is so much trashing Razer for their quality and then they praise Logitech (or the other way around, put any known brand here).

In my experience?

Had a DA that I took to LANs more often than not, with metallic and plastic mousepads scratching and bumping against it, it has a few scratches but that's it, it didn't peel, everything worked like a champ for three or more years.

Then I also had 2 G5's and 1 G500.

One of the G5 was skipping like crazy on the Qpad I used to have, so I did replace it with the newer G5 2007, which one button broke off after mere two weeks of use.

Several years later I took a G500 because it was the cheapest mouse with that sensor, and I really wanted to try if it would be a worthy contendant for my DA3.5G as a competitive mouse. One week and the mousewheel was broken, it wouldn't register left or right movements. It wasn't suitable for competition either.

My DA and DA3.5G still work pretty well, although my old DA (it's been like 4 years of continual use , carrying around and bashing) felt it's age (mouse clicks weren't that consistent and mouse wheel wouldn't be that exact, but still usable).

TL;DR:
You have at least three great choices in this price range provided you don't need gargantuan CPI values :
G400 : Good optical sensor (up to 3600CPI), ergonomic shape, durable design. Try to see if you can palm one and you're comfortable with it, ergonomic mice tend to be about the consumer's tastes.
DA3.5/BE : Great optical sensor (up to 3500CPI), ergonomic shape, should be as durable as G400. As before ,try to see if you can get hold of one before ordering, as shape can do or break a mouse.
Zowie AM : Great optical sensor (up to ~2300CPI), small ambidextrous shape, seems robust (hasn't been in market for long enough to know), should fit any way you grab your mouse (claw, fingertip, palm).

If you're so or so looking for higher CPI, at this price range you could get either of those :
G9x : Best laser sensor so far, although it has acceleration, claw or fingertip grip.
G500 : Best laser sensor so far, alghouth it has acceleration, for palm grip mostly (if you have HUGE hands you can fingertip it too probably). It was the sensor oddly placed in the front of the mouse, so it can be annoying.

Hope I was of help smile.gif

G9x > g700 > g500.

And please don't go for razer, because it's most unpredictable gear ever made. You don't really know how razer mice will look after few months of usage.

Logitech G500 or Razer DeathAdder 3500DPI. Both are fine, I have owned both. Currently use the DeathAdder though, I find the ergonomics much better suited to my hand vs the G500.

G500 or the M60 by Corsair... I have had a G5 for over 6 years and it is still an amazing mouse, running strong. I want the M60 though.
post #28 of 39
I've had the DeathAdder for...umm...a year? At least. It's been great! No problems, ever. Ergonomics are great. Never owned a better mouse. So +1 for the DeathAdder.

G400, G500, DA are all sound choices, go for the brand u prefer, know is reliable, and u have tested their reliability/customer service... but i'd like to stress that just as many have suggested that one important factor is ergonomics...
I would suggest trying out the shape at a store or if a m8 of urs has one of the candidates try it out (latter even better) as u can also check ergonomics of the mouse combined with ur 'grip'...
U might hate or equally love any of the mice based on ergonomics/feel of it

For example, an oddity of mine is that even though the g400 or the g500 have a small difference in shape i cannot stand the g500 as opposed to the g400, which is great for my grip... which leads me to another point i'd like to make which is more expensive doesnt mean better

This says it all. And I've owned plenty of both Logitech and Razer products to tell you that Logitech's are superior in build quality. In fact, the only reason I got rid of my G500 mouse is because I bought several other mice. I've since landed on the G9X and I love this mouse. You won't pry it from me until I'm dead!
