Help! before 11/01/2012 at 14:00! Need to find a sub-$35 mouse [Newegg only]

post #1 of 15

Hello good OCN folks!

I'm planning to buy some stuff off newegg and have them imported to Mexico but due to shipping and importing restictions i have until tomorrow at 2 PM to put my order in newegg.

Today i happened to recieve some unexpected $35 and decided to get a gaming mouse!

I play mostly League of Legends but also some other stuff like Dead Space, Starcraft II and emulated PS, PS2, Wii, Game Cube, etc.

I want it to have at least 3 2 fully programmable buttons (more would be preferable for PSD and Autodesk Inventor) besides the usual ones and 'bout dpi and that stuff im not really sure since ive always played with ****ty mouses, need your help there!

These are the options ive looked at so far:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104618&Tpk=g300
Logitech G300- seems to have lots of stuff but the buttons not being in the thumb seems somewhat unconfortable.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826146020
Gigabyte GM-M6900- looks good! any reason why its so cheap?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826146021
Gigabyte GM-M6980- similar as above but some better things on the inside. Is it worth it?

I'm open to suggestions!

Thank you OCN! biggrin.gif

I'd recommend going for one of the two Razer Abyssus (the non-glossy one will probably be more comfortably unless you really like running your hand over glossy plastic) or the Cooler Master Storm Xornet.

The Abyssus uses a well-regarded sensor exclusive to Razer which is fairly well regarded. Razer is also a relatively reputable company when it comes to the tricky work of computer mice.

The Storm Xornet uses a mouse sensor that I'm not entirely familiar with, but maybe similar to the one I use (it uses an Avago 3050, whereas my lovely Naos 3200 is an Avago 3060 sensor). It may be the slightly riskier choice, but if it were me I'd buy the Storm Xornet because of its ergonomic shape. If you're right-handed, those contours on the right side of the mouse are really comfortable. At least they are on my Naos.

Note the Storm Xornet is a small, light weight mouse meant for control with fingertips (yum). If you like a big, heavy mouse that fills your hand, it would be bad for you.

As for mouse setup, set the windows mouse slider (pointer speed) to the middle setting (#6 out of 11 - this is the most accurate setting, all the others mess with accuracy) with no automatic or modifying settings. In the mouse driver itself set the polling rate to the maximum possible. If the driver has an 'acceleration' 'angle snapping' or any other option that promises to use software for some sort of improvement, turn it off. It's better to have the pointer track your hand as closely as possible without software interference. According to Newegg, the mouse can be set to 500, 1000, or 2000 DPI (number of pixels the cursor moves per inch of mouse movement). Having not used a gaming mouse before, you're probably used to 400 or 800 dpi. I'd recommend trying each setting exclusively for a few days with your favorite game to get used to each in turn, and then decide which speed is best for you. I'd guess the 1000 DPI setting, but everyone's different and your screen resolution may play a small difference in your preference.

Edit: The logitech looks like it could also be a good choice with a similar (though not identical) sensor to the storm xornet, although I like the shape of the storm xornet better. I'd avoid the gigabyte options though.

Edit2: I didn't pay any attention to additional programmable buttons. You'll have to check on that yourself. I've never played a game where I wanted more than one macro on my mouse rather than the keyboard.

that xornet looks good! +rep! specially at $25 and free shipping! but are the side buttons fully programable? if so, that obne might be my choice!

i like the logitech better because of moooar buttons and lighting but the extra buttons seem akwardly placed at the sides of right and left click, wouldnt that be a bit unconfortable?

thanks you!

What buttons are comfortable where is different for each user, I would guess, so I can't tell you how they are on the Logitech. I don't have a Xornet, so I can't answer specifically on the buttons. Cooler Master claims 5 are programmable, 2 are fixed function. But I don't know which are fixed and there doesn't seem to be a driver for the mouse so there might be some worry that it's not easy to do so. *shrug* sorry I don't know more about it.

Edit: The Logitech is probably slightly higher in quality overall. I've just never personally liked a logitech mouse's shape.

As far as i know xornet has no programmable buttons at all cause there are no drivers for it.
There might be third party programms that can help this problem but i really dunno.

Heh. Impossible dilemma. The storm spawn has the better shape and ergonomics, the g300 has the better sensor, neither by a large margin. Whichever button configuration seems most useful, I suppose.

Dunno bout the G300 but I can tell you that the spawn is a fine mouse if you set it up properly. In the reviews it came out that there are only a few settings that give you
full 1:1 but on the other hand many ppl use it an don't complain if they use other seetings cause they don't feel a difference. A big plus for you is that all buttons can be
set to a keyboard key or a keyboard macro.

Edit: On second thought if i look at the other thread they claim that angle snapping has been remove on the g400. You may have a look at that mouse then.
If you're lucky you can get a new one.
