Zowie AM vs Mx518 vs intellimouse 3.0 vs DA

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok well i came to my top 4... still trying to figure out with one i should get out of the 4 so i am asking your help .

I currently use the intellimouse 1.1a but im looking for an upgrade since this one is getting old. I really loved this mouse so if it's something similir that will be good, no i dont want another 1.1a i wanna try something new. I kind of prefer optical then laser..Budget dosen't matter!

Im a really low sense player... i normally use 400 - 800 dpi max and 125hz
The game i mainly play now is CrossFire....then LoL and CSS

I use a Qck Heavy.

Please tell me wich one and why!!

Well, I can't say which mouse is the best, but m8 give you some advice.
I used Zowie AM, DA and IE 3.0.
I never liked IE3.0, no idea why, maybe the shape didn't suited me. I know many ppl use it on a proffesional level even now.
I was using DA for years. I thought it's a best mouse ever made. I have a lot of memories with it, but it broke down few weeks back.
Zowie AM is my new mouse. I'm glad I bought it. It's much smaller then DA which is good for my small hands. Quality is perfect, and sensor is good as well. I'm a mid-low sens player so I never reach speeds above 3m/s.
If you used 1.1 I would recomend you zowie AM. DA is much bigger and "taller" and a lot of ppl don't like the shape of it - like my brother. IE 3.0 has worst sensor of all I believe. And instead of mx518 you should consider G400v2.

If you would like to use 125Hz you'll have to install the Logitech Gaming Software for G400.

Why would someone want a 125Hz? What's the advantage over the higher ones?

None? smile.gif Higher rate - lower delay, more smoothness?
However some sensors jiiter or track worse on higher pooling rate, but in general higher is better.

Lower HZ helps when doing long range sniping in BF3 sometimes 500-1000 hz can make it too smooth making it harder to stall the cursor on that pixel kill.

Well I think it's more about sensitivity then pooling rate, but I see your point.
Overall pulling rate isn't that important factor, I always use pooling rate which works best for my sensor - tracking wise - like perfect control speeds, jiiter effect and smoothnes.

DA is much bigger and "taller" and a lot of ppl don't like the shape of it - like my brother. IE 3.0 has worst sensor of all I believe. And instead of mx518 you should consider G400v2.

Change the "mx518" option to "g400"

Go with the most comfortable mouse for you by test or look.
