Help me pick a new mouse please!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay so, I've had my Razer Deathadder 3500 dpi for over 7 months and i have decided that i need a new mouse. The deathadder has too many conflicting problems with windows, and i think it's time to get a new mouse. There are lots of choices in the market, and i have narrowed my choices down, there are still quite a few that i have an interest in though, so that is why i am making this thread! I need opinions from people who have owned these mice and their experiences with them.

Okay, here are my choices (in descending order)

Zowie EC1 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826876006

Logitech G500 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104318

Logitech G9x - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104261

Roccat Kone + - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826436003

Roccat Savu - http://www.roccat.org/Products/Gaming-Mice/ROCCAT-Savu/

Roccat Kova+ - http://www.roccat.org/Products/Gaming-Mice/ROCCAT-Kova-/#crb_2

Razer Abysuss - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826153056

Cooler Master CM Storm Sentinel - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826570011

Corsair Vengeance M60 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826816006

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The three main mice I'm interested in are The EC1, G500, and the Kone+. However, the other mice listed sparked interests as well and i'd like to know more about them from anyone who has owned them. I play pretty much FPS exclusively and i need a smooth, comfortable, accurate mouse for the job.

Thanks in advance!

The only viable, prediction & acceleration-free options that I can recommend are:

-G400(buy from Amazon, for most luck to get the new version without prediction - side buttons, great scroll button, shape is speshal)

-ABYSSUS(high lift off distance, no side buttons, stupid rubber[get the mirror version]... I hate it)

-{Possibly} Zowie EC1/2 eVo white(haven't tested this mouse shape yet, but the sensor is from the Zowie AM, which I have tested, and it has odd CPI settings, and some jitter on certain mousepads)



But honestly, it's too bad people can't go do their own research, and get their own answers :\ How can they trust anyone else's recommendations, otherwise? =p KEEKEE

There is no 'Great Mouse' yet, so the 'Old Classics' are still viable:
-WMO
-IE3.0

EC1 eVo black

+ no prediction
+ no positive and negative acceleration
+ shape
+ coating
+ buttons
+ no drivers
+ you only need 450dpi to play fps games so no jitter
+ 1000Hz but you don't need it 500Hz is enough
+ flexible cable
+ optical scrollwheel
+ teflon glides

+- click buttons too much noise
+- scrollwheel too much noise
+- when you scratch your mouse, coating will wear off (obvious)
