Hey guys, I've been using the microsoft 4000 mobile mouse for almost 2 years now and I'm getting bored of it. So I searched for a new mouse and I came up with two mouses that seem the best to me. The G9x and the Deather black edition. A lot of people say that the G9x is better than the Deathadder and vice versa. I can get the :
- Razer Deathadder Black Edition with a Coolermaster Blue LED 120mm fan for 55$ shipped
OR
- Logitech G9x for 70$ shipped (no coolermaster fan)

When I use my mouse, my hand use like a semi palm grip and a semi claw grip, probably because the microsoft mouse is small. I used to own a Cyborg R.A.T. 7 but I sold it because it wasn't really comfortable and the cursor was moving by itself.
Also, the mousepad I'm using is Steelseries QcK. So... which mouse should I buy?



EDIT: After 3~5 days checking out reviews/opinions, I decided to choose the G9x mainly for these reasons :
- I'm a claw gripper
- The customer service I had with Logitech was excellent
- One of the best players in the world in Starcraft II uses it (MarineKingPrime and IMMvp)
- People who RMA'd their Razer products had to wait 2+ weeks to have their items replaced
- The durability/quality is better than the Deathadder

Deathadder BE is better for palm grip and G9x for claw grip. I personally use the DA BE with qck and I simply love it. Deathadder has better tracking, and I would simply choose it because of that. DA has a pretty high lift off distance though, but it can be lowered with tapefix or doubling up your mouse feet.

The Cyborg RAT 7 was kind of big to me... If the Deathadder is bigger than the RAT then it wouldn't be comfortable for me, no?

The G9x if you are a a claw gripper or have small hands like me. smile.gif The DA:BE if you want the best sensor/flawless performing mouse, on cloth pads. The G9x will result in some inconsistent acceleration on cloth pads, but is fine on a hard surface. The DA is also a bit larger than the average mouse, just a note. smile.gif

I owned the original DA myself, while I love it to death but it was very big for my hands. A perfect mice if you are into FPS like CS:S.

I have no issues whatsoever with my DA:BE if build quality was something you were considering as a con on the Razer.
The braided cable is quite idiotic but other than that I love it.

I have owned bot a Deathadder (not a BE one) and currently own a G9X, the G9X is by far better in my opinion, Deathadders feel light and cheap in my hands while the G9X has weights that can increase the weight of the mouse and actually feel like you are holding a real gaming mouse. I owned the Deathadder for 2-3 months before I replaced it with my G9X and sold it to my friend.

lol I almost forgot, I also had the DA:BE. The build quality is okay, not exactly I would say typical Razer. I really loved both my DAs, and come to think of it the feet from the DA:BE actually felt better(using a QcK+ SK) or IDK if it's just me. I say go for the BE, and you also get a free fan tongue.gif and for $15 cheap which you can use to buy a good cloth surface like the Goliathus Medium which is like $20 IIRC. biggrin.gif

The DA should theoretically track better on the QcK.

G9x (with smaller fingertip grip) is a little smaller than Rat 7:

450

DA is about the same size as a G400/MX518.
