mouse THAT important? - Page 4

post #31 of 59
I have a mionix naos 5000, an $80 mouse, paired with a razer destructor mouse pad. I've played on a friends pc with a $5 best buy brand mouse, it was awful.

good peripherals makes all the difference while playing a fast paced game.

Keyboards on the other hand... Eh, not as much difference from a $5 one, I think keyboards are more about comfort and features.

i gotta ask, whats so good about the mx518 anyway? wouldn't the g500 be better since i am able to play at 2300 - 2500 dpi on it( which i do)? sorry for noob question..

but for my experience, a better mouse does feel amazing. i went from a 20 dollar wireless usb mouse to my g500, i felt no resistance when i moved, had more buttons that i could press which made me better, and i could change my dpi on the fly when i really needed it(which, suprisingly, i did for different weapons).

id recommend a g500 too, amazing mouse

DeathAdder is the best mouse for me. Lasted through 5 hardcore years, and works like new. Cyber R.A.T, Logitech G500, SteelSeries Xai were all great but could never live up to DeathAdder. Thats all I got to say lol

Its not all about the DPI ability. The G500 has a few flaw's for some poeple. first, there is some minor acceleration with its sensor. Software cannot turn it off. the location of the senser is a problem I have, some are not bother'd by it. lastly the G500 is HEAVY compaired to say DA or G400. Even if I remove the entire weight cartage the mouse is still heavy. not to mention the switch's in the G500 have some problem's. Mine won't register clicks some time's. pretty common flaw.

If they removed the weight cartrage the place the sensor in the proper place and lost some of the weight, changed the switch and lost the prediction I would pay over $100 for right this second. but the G400 is the next best bet for me:( give and take...

I like the way you think yessir.gif

I only have experience with one gaming mouse, the Razer Imperator. I got a good deal on it at a big box about a year ago but this thread has me wanting to try out plenty of options.

Also, don't forget about the reviews section on this site, it can be very informative. thumb.gif

i understand, to each his own then =]. for me though, i like the heaviness. i thought that's how good mice were supposed to be, so i think i might have just gotten used to it haha. also, i don't know if people know this, but the angle snapping has a tick box in the mice settings to enable it or not, so i think that should solve that problem. i don't know of any other problems with this mouse though.

edit: yea, the weird placement for the laser is a con for some i guess, i think i got used to it though. it doesn't bother me.

like i said, to each his own. i agree with gelatin_factory, look at the review section so that you can know which mouse would really fit your hand

Thats exactly what it is. personal opinion. However, even if you uncheck the angle snaping box, the sensor used for the G500 has a small amount of built in acceleration. It cannot be disabled. The "old" G400's where also shipped with Angle Snapping as part of the sensor, but was removed in the "new" version due to customer complaint. the G500 has not been changed.

All of that dose not change the fact that they are both good mice, The only "Problem" with the G500 is the silly switch issue. Logitech however has a great warranty and will replace them quick and easy.

After good FPS (IMO, 60+), keyboard and mouse are CRUCIAL.

Mouse > Keyboard, definately, but they still both play a major role. A good mouse will give you better accuracy, much better movement accuracy (ability to move from A to B faster, and more accurately), and better reaction (easier / better placed buttons, etc.). They keyboard is important as sticky-keys (keys that arent responsive, not that stupid "press-shift-five-times" thing) can really throw you off, as well as the size of the keyboard itself, key depression, etc.

Personally, I use a Logitech G5 mouse and G15 (FIRST GEN), and I have yet to find anything better. The Deathadder is pretty nice, but IMO its too 'flat' (I cup my mouse). Even version can make a difference, as the G15 1st gen >>>> 2nd gen. I have both, and the 2nd gen is almost as bad as a stock dell keyboard. Its terrible.

keyboard is not critical at all. a $19 keyboard is perfect for any fps or any game really. but a high end mouse is a must.

I would think a gamer that has NKRO will most likely beat a gamer that has a $19 keyboard that can only register a few keys being pressed at the same time. I mean, you have to think about it... when playing an FPS you're usually holding down sprint, movement keys, jumping maybe, keybinds, etc. Probably even more game-breaking for MMOs.
