First gaming mouse - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Thread Starter 
I didn't buy the G9X yesterday, since the MW3 edition was even cheaper, so I started looking at some other mice. But wasn't really able to find anything similar accept for the Corsair M60. How does it compare to the G9X? Also, what is positive acceleration? Does it really effect the mouse?
Do you have any other suggestions, maybe a bigger mouse for a different grip? I currently use a small mouse, so that's probably why I prefer the fingertip grip, but if i change the mouse, I might change my grip preference (if not I can can return it and get a different mouse). Sorry for the amount of questions, and thanks.

positive acceleration is when you swipe the mouse in any direction and it seems to go farther than intended, speeding up along the way.

for example, you swipe 8 inches on your pad but it goes 9 or 10 on your monitor.

thats the best way i can think of it right now without looking it up

Yeah, this is basically what positive acceleration would do, so I cannot recommend it for first person shooters.

I'll never buy another mouse again after this G500 (unless it breaks of course; I'd buy another one). It's the best mouse I have ever used and it's been going strong 3 years with no problems whatsoever. I highly recommend it. I'm sure the G9X is probably a great option too, but I will always recommend the G500.

None of the gaming mice I'd recommend are in your price range, I'm afraid. I can, however, recommend a wireless mouse that worked perfectly for me gaming for 2 years.

Logitech M705

Pros:

Incredible battery life. I put a pair of lithium AA's in it when I first got it, which not only made it the perfect weight but lasted for 2 years and had 3 more to go according to the monitoring software. I never turned it off. EVER. So 5 years of 24/7 use with a pair of lithiums if the software was telling the truth.

3 thumb buttons are adequate for most games. The rest you can bind to keys.

I never had a problem with the wireless connection, even from a 5 foot distance from the key with metal obstructions.

Unlockable scroll wheel

Cons:

No DPI adjustment, and fairly low DPI.

I experienced a little acceleration in some games, but was able to adjust it out using the software. Mostly games a decade old or older.

And that's all I can think of.



I throw out this suggestion because, to me, this seems like the perfect in-between mouse. It's adequate enough for gaming that you won't feel you're missing out on anything, and it's still extremely reliable and handy. You're used to using a cordless mouse so you don't have to worry about getting frustrated with that until you're absolutely sure that you want a full-on gaming mouse and which one you want. It won't be 40 bucks wasted either, because by the time you're done with it you can always give it to a family member looking as good as the day you bought it and they won't even have to buy a new set of batteries to put in it. Just like I did.thumb.gif

Well I dont know about the prices over there but a mouse worth looking at is the cyborg R.A.T 7/9 it is completely adjustable for any hands size and grip type
post #18 of 22
Even the RAT3/5 are pretty decent... It just depends on what you find comfortable. I still use my MX510 from '04 more than I do any of my newer mice, because it's seriously unbreakable, very comfortable, and I don't even realize I'm using it.

Bah !!!

Razer are excellent mice, I have six different ones and NOT ONE has ever broken. And they are good mice for the price.

I do own 2 Logitech G9 mice and one broke already and went in the trash... mad.gif

Yes, I have 2 R.A.T. 7's and they are excellent. Paid $140 a piece for them. I got over a thousand bucks worth of high end gaming mice from various companies. The Rats are right up there...
