Please suggest me a good gaming mouse.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello,

So I own a Razer Imperator mouse, and although I like it and all it gets quite dirty and sometimes uncomfortable because of the shiny plastic that they used on the sides of the mouse. I am looking for a replacement, although I don't want it to be as expensive. Most likely I want to get the best for the buck kind of thing, for around 50 euros(the razer cost me around 75€ when I bought it).

Requirements:

- Atleast two side buttons like my razer
- Good/accurate sensor for gaming
- Maybe dpi adjust
- Solid/matte body style

Waiting for your suggestions biggrin.gif

You could get the Razer Deathadder black edition. The black edition has like a satin almost kind of matte finish on top and a matte finish on the sides. No glossy areas at all except for the bottom. Seriously one of the most comfortable mice I've owned, perfect for palm to claw grips

Yeah I was also thinking about the Death Adder.
I think it's going to be this or the Roccat Savu, which also seems nice, but the razer looks more comfortable I think.

Also looking at Steelseries diablo 3/gw2 editions, these also look similar but a little bit more expensive.

The DeathAdder's sensor is top-notch according to some of the mouse gurus here, no noticeable acceleration and with the new Synapse 2.0 increments of 100 dpi at a time.

I really like my DeathAdder so that is the one I'd recommend.

The Roccat Savu isn't getting the warmest welcome among early users.........................

Roccat Savu is awesome. I'd be using it if I didn't convert to left hand. (Actually grabbed the mouse after the fact tongue.gif)

Thing can be picky with a few surfaces (lower max IPS speed), but it's accurate as hell compared to a ton of mice.

Shape is really subjective. I suppose its not my favorite either x)

So I got the Steelseries Diablo 3 edition, I know that none suggested that but tongue.gif

First impressions:
1) Sensor lift height seems to be higher than my razer, which means you can lift the mouse up and still use it
2) Although the shape is more simple it's more comfortable/solid
3) Performance wise seems similar or better
4) More buttons

Overall I think it's a better choice.

Logitech G400, it's optical sensor doesn't suffer from any acceleration issues has all of the criteria that you wanted. It's adjustable dpi is a must
