Looking for first gaming mice

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
1. What's your grip style?
palm

2. What's your sensitivity?
not sure

3. What's your maximum budget?
strictly under $60

4. Do you want additional buttons?
I just need 1 or 2 additional buttons on the thumb side

5. What games do you play?
BF3, Dota 2

6. Do you mind about prediction?
I heard of this, but lots of people prefer no prediction, so I guess I'll say dont want prediction

7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.
some examples: LOD, ambidextrous shape, weight, wireless, non-braided cord, glossy finish, button activation force, driverless, onboard memory, etc

I've been using my very old dynex mouse since forever, and looking for a new gaming mice. I used a Microsoft sidewinder, but it feels so wide and heavy and so big. I need a mouse that is I guess very easy to press down since I'll be using it to play games.

Razer Deathadder. It's priced at $60. It a fantastic mouse for the price. It's really comfortable. Sorry for only a few points. Don't remember much about my Deathadder.

well, i would reccomend the Razer Deathadder, i have it and i love it!

i use palm grip as well

i got mine factory refurb for $35!

If you look around on ebay, and online you can find em for under 60 for sure, and i think that it would be a great mouse for you thumb.gif

The first "gaming" mouse I got was a Razer DeathAdder that I bought refurbished from a Woot-off for $25 bucks. Definitely the most comfortable mouse I've ever used. After 4 years of heavy usage the left click became overly sensitive (bad microswitch?). Gave it to my brother for his laptop. He uses it solely for FPS gaming where an extra sticky click or two won't really hurt when you've got an automatic or burst weapon heh.

The mouse is fairly large, so it's good if you have large hands, and tend to play with a palm-grip (as opposed to fingertip grip, where you might prefer a smaller mouse)

Once my RAT 7 kicks the bucket I'll probably switch back to the DeathAdder.

That said, I would definitely not pay the full retail price for any Razor device, or any mouse/peripheral for that matter (bought my RAT 7 used off of eBay).

Thank you for your comments guys. The only thing I heard about the deathadder was its build quality, I heard its a bit poor compared to other popular mices. Is this true?

Is there a real difference between the Black edition and the regular edition?
Also, is there a V2 deathadder ? I heard something about an updated version of the deathadder.

Well it does feel a bit to light to me. It also feels like it has nothing inside of it which is weird. I don't remember anything about a v2 Deathadder. Could they be talking about a newer model?

I think they "remade" the Deathadder around last year. My memory is really horrible. I also saw people talking about it on some other forums. I'm pretty sure the current Deathadder is the V2.

The current one is V3, in the 3.5G revision, and is available in the standard version, the Black Edition (no LEDs, rubberized sides), and 3 different Transformers versions. The Deathadder thread has more information about this.

If you're in the US, Amazon currently has the Black Edition for $48.99 (naturally, just a few weeks after I buy one for $60).
