Need recommendations on probably Palm grip wireless gaming mouse.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I looked at the pictures from the sticky about the mice style and I am pretty sure I am a palm grip because I have large hands, unless I default to that because the mouse is small. I use a razer exactmat Xpeed mat I got ages ago, I use the smooth side, mouse needs to glide.

Long story short, I started with an Logitech MX1000, I used to love it until right click started failing, I had a refurb g7 I got cheap and that replaced it. The G7 tracked really good, was comfortable with the exception that the scroll wheel was really stiff and made my finger hurt when I used it, battery life was abysmal compared to mx1000, started having disconnecting issues which I heard was common on those, it was out of warranty so I retired it.
Next was wired mouse that I got from work years ago razer habu, scroll wheel is great, nice mouse, tracking is a lot sloppier than the g7, has a wire issue and moving it the wrong way will cause it to disconnect so I really need to find a proper replacement.

I would prefer wireless solutions providing the mouse does not have interference issues like the g7.
I hate the pull on wired mice, specially since the tower is so far away.
scroll wheel must not be stiff to the point of hurting my fingers like the g7.
Do they still make them with good battery life like the mx1000, g7 battery life was abysmal.
I like to use my mouse on a smooth surface, razer exactmat.
good tracking, habu for some reason is sloppier tracking than old g7.
Prefer Laser, definitely no IR mice, I think MS has a tech called blue trac or something that was supposed to replace laser but never picked up.
Are dual laser mice good or are they more problem since it's tracking 2 different areas?
Who's leading in mice these days? logitech? razer?

Thanks for reading this, would have a lot more idea of what's happening with mouse but things have changed a lot since the last time I looked at them, a lot more competitive brands now.

Hi,

There isnt a lot of choice in the wireless mouse department these days. The only ones that I can think of are the Razer Mamba, the Razer Naga Epic, the Logitech g700, the Logitech Performance MX, the Cyborg RAT 9 and the MS Sidewinder x8 (which isnt made anymore).


I would personally choose the g700 if I were to buy a wireless mouse. You will be glad to hear that Logitech is now using their ''Hyperfast scrolling'' wheel (the same that on the g9) on almost all their new mouses, I personally tried it and I find it really great.

I cant comment on the battery life.

I read in a review that the g700 has connection issues. Kinda sux that there isn't as much selection these days, I would have thought that wireless would have gotten a lot better by now.

Wont work the bungee, I have what used to be a slide out keyboard and it broke, so now 1/3 is hidden under desk so I don't really have a complete flat surface like your desk, more like a crawl space for my keyboard and mouse.

I have been using the G700 since its release and havent had any connection issues. So far it has been my favorite wireless gaming mice (used g7, x8, and mamba v1) from the features, built quality, and support. I even still have the G7 retired in its box, been wanting to sell it for sometime. The G7 did had "poor battery" life I really liked how you can recharged the batteries and swap to another one. Easy solutions would been getting another battery off ebay. At the same time if there were Ni-MH batteries, that would have improved usage time. Still, it was a great mice at the time.

For the G700, battery life + max gaming mode does drain the battery a bit, but not an issue within the first year+. It can be easily replaced by another enloop battery later on like the new XX model. The wired cable is bit thick, but currently using a very thin mini usb retractable cable in which i dont feel the cable on wired mode.

If you have a tight space for you keyboard and mice, you can go with a tenkeyless KB which should give you more room.

Is the scroll wheel soft on the g700? The one on the G7 was bad, made my finger hurt compared to the Microsoft Habu mouse. I am also wondering why does nobody recommend the razer mice? is it their exuberant price? built quality or drivers? Tracking?

Seems like nobody is releasing many wireless mouse these days.
