I need a new mouse.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I basically need a new mouse since my Corsair M60 laser died out on me frown.gif

I sent it back to where I got it from and they said that if the laser is confirmed not working, they will give me $69 (which is how much I bought it for) credit to buy a new mouse.

What mouse should I get out of these http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=258_697_698&vk_sort=4 (remembering it has to be at or under $69). I can however get a cheaper mouse like a $49 one and get the rest of the money ($20) back though.

I don't want to get the Corsair again because there are somethings I don't like about it like the driver and how bad it macros.

There are some rules that the mouse needs to follow though.

-Has to be a quality mouse
-Has to have at least 2 side/macro buttons (I would -->really<-- prefer 3 but I can live with 2)
-Has to have a good grip
-A good scroll wheel and laser

Thanks for reading and I hope you can help me pick a good mouse biggrin.gif

Well, if you're strictly limiting yourself to 69, then I'd go with the Deathadder Black Edition (if you palm grip or have big hands) or the G500 (if you claw grip or have smaller hands).

I have fairly small hand since I am a teenager and I also palm/claw grip at the same time I guess.

I like the G500 except for the colour and apparently the scroll wheel is very good, otherwise I probably would get it since it has 3 side buttons which look easy to reach.

I am still wondering if I should get a cheaper mouse like the CM Storm Spawn and get the $20 refunded to me.

Anyone have experience with the G500 scroll wheel or Storm Spawn?

I love my Logitech G500! Great mouse IMO. Also, look at the Logitech G400, and the Razer Deathadder.

As to the color, does it matter when your hand is over the mouse? It fades off a bit, but I would still keep my mouse. I love the three buttons on the side, and I'm a teenager too, so I doubt you would have a problem with it.

I would probably get the DeathAdder in a heart beat if it had a 3rd side button :/ How is the macro functionality on the DeathAdder? Is the driver good?

Also how do you find the G500 scroll wheel? Should I just get the CM Spawn since it is basically like the DeathAdder (with 2 side buttons) and save my self $20?

Thanks for the help?

You can customize it to anything you want in the control panel you get with it. Its very simple to change it. And if you dont even want to use it, you can disable it lol.

Well the thing is I use the side buttons for run/sprint in games and crouch/prone which cancels out 2 buttons (which trust me, are a necessity) and it is really useful to have a third button for an extra command like knife or something.

Well if you need more than 2, check out the other Razer mice. There is one that has many buttons on the side. Its sweet.

I've heard a LOT of bad stuff about the G500... the G400 (formerly the MX 518, which I own) however is generally considered a fantastic mouse.
