Recommend to me a good (2400ish DPI?) mouse.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've not tried a lot of gaming mice before, but I am completely happy with my current mouse, a Mionix Naos 3200. So why am I making this thread? I'm upgrading to a 2560x1600 monitor (from 1680x1050) and I'm concerned the screen change will affect my mouse usage. (My main game is SC2, and it seems that I'd want to keep the mouse movement required to move from one side of the screen to the other pretty close to constant.)

I did a little basic math, and it appears that a roughly 2500 DPI mouse should cover the same territory on the new screen as the 1600 DPI setting I currently use. Faster would be worse than a tad slower, so I'm looking for a mouse that can be set to 2400-2500ish. For reference, I like the surface, weight, ergonomic shape (finger ledges right side), build quality, ability to turn LEDs off, & 1600 sensitivity of the naos (pretty much everything but the mouse wheel is perfect). I'd consider the Naos 5000 (of course), but apparently that uses a radically different laser sensor with acceleration problems (I hate acceleration and high levels of prediction).

1. What's your grip style?
Fingertip

2. What's your sensitivity?
Medium? The 3200 DPI setting on the Naos was far too sensitive on my old screen. As stated above, looking for a mouse that can do 2400-2500 DPI.

3. What's your maximum budget?
Irrelevant

4. Do you want additional buttons?
Not needed. I've rebound one button on the mouse, but I'm not an MMO player that needs 15 macros. On the other hand, I don't want them getting in the way.

5. What games do you play?
Total War series, SC2 (which I believe maintains a constant amount the map displayed based on screen ratio, not resolution), LoL

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Minimal prediction perferred.

7. Other relevant information:
Lightweight: not (much) heavier than the Naos 3200, which according to their website is 99grams w/o cord (the important number) and 142 grams with the cord.
Lift-off-Distance: I don't care
Looks: I don't care, except for the RAT series (ugly).
Button activation force: light preferred, not a big deal.
Onboard memory: nice and all, but I'm not going to select based on it.
I've heard optical sensors are more reliable and can be used on more surfaces than laser, but then I've had a hell of a time searching for a well-regarded optical mouse that can actually be set to 2400-2500ish DPI.

Thank you to those who take the time to provide feedback.

I would buy a Logitech G500 and set the DPI exactly to what you want.
There is a weight system that you can add or remove weight.
Convenient to all mouse grip style.
I used finger tip and claw grip and both work pretty good.

DO NOT GET THE CYBORG, it's made by madcats.
Never tried them but the new Corsair M series are out now, you could have a look at them.

If my only choices are mice with the 9500 sensor, I'll get a Naos 5000, unless software makes some huge difference I'm unaware of.

considering those are all using the same sensor... stick with the noas and just the drivers to set the dpi. there's the razer deathadder 3.5g and logitech g400. (i think it's the 400). the da has a step at 1800 dpi and then 3500 dpi, but i find 1800 dpi more then enough for rtses and fps.
