Looking for a Mouse Similar to this

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Howdy folks. I need your help, and although I've been usually able to solve my problems by lurking on this forum, I finally am speaking.

TL/DR: Looking for a mouse similar to the one in the photos below (wide palm for palm-grip + easy on pinky finger).

I'm currently hunting for a new gaming mouse and I feel a little overwhelmed. I REALLY like the way the mouse I currently have feels in my hand, so I want something similar. I have been using this stock mouse that I got free when ordering custom PC parts, but it's starting to die on me (a bad connection in the poor quality cord, as you can see below):



Things I am looking for in a new mouse:
  • Something COMFORTABLE on a palm-grip and on my PINKY. That little dude gets some serious cramping after a few hours of gaming. That is my biggest selling point.
  • Wide base similar to one in the mouse seen above. (It's about 3 inches in width at the palm area; see picture below that was taken with my 0.5 Megapixel Potato.)
  • Must have "forward/back" side buttons as seen on the mouse above.
  • Must be corded.
  • Preferably (YET NOT REQUIRED) under $80. Worth noting: I have a 20% discount on all Logitech products.

Mouses (yes, mouses) I have looked at/considered, but am quite unsure about:
  • Logitech G9x
  • Logitech G700
  • Mionix Naos 3200 or 5000 <-- This one was winning for quite some time due to ergonomics (yet lost due to lift-off issues). **SOMETHING LIKE THIS**
  • GIGABYTE GM-M6800 (Super cheap, however, it's almost the same shape as my current mouse.)

THANKS IN ADVANCE. I know you guys are pretty awesome at this stuff.

Suggestions COMMENCE... please?

G400 gets my vote. thumb.gif

Not EXACTLY similar, but close. I just wanted to see if it would spark your interest because it's quite popular around here.

I absolutely love my g9x. To the point that Im afraid to get rid of it anytime soon for fear of not liking anything else. It comes with two different body types and one of them is smooth and wide. I have it loaded down with weight and I love it. The only thing I can say it doesnt have or I personally dont utilize is a pinky rest but thats never been a problem for me. It just kind of naturally sits on the side of the mouse. Idk? lol

I did notice its popularity around here. However, the buttons on the side were not to my liking when I tested one out in-store (they aren't "clicky" enough for me).
G300: I bought one and promptly returned it; my pinky was suffering hard. The mouse is too small and cramped.
G400: See above.
G700: Well, IDK. I'm looking for input.
Taipan: Ambidextrous seems to be uncomfortable to me, and it's smaller than my current mouse (3.5").

I guess I have a few questions about the G9x. Does it feel as wide as it looks? Would you be able to measure the palm portion on the wide grip? Also, are the side buttons easily hit with the thumb without "reaching" for them?

Thanks for the reply. Have you used this mouse? It has quite horrible reviews online.

If your so happy with it, why change? I still use the Intellimouse because I havn't found a better alternative.


Just buy the same mouse again.
