The higher priced tier contains mice with bad performance (acceleration, z-axis issues, etc).

Just a note, it's not stickied to the sidebar of /r/buildapc and there's a reason for that.

I'm sad I don't see any Zowie mice anywhere in this guide.
I think it's nice you took the time to write all this up, as I'm sure it took you a bit, but IMO it's lacking in some major areas as pointed out by other members. Hopefully you'll fix those and update it. smile.gif

Yes, I am currently working on fixing those issues. And will try to add more information about sensors and such.

4-8ms is perfectly fine for general use, but for gaming, this is frowned upon, as you can't react as fast with longer response times.

Assuming optimal hardware conditions... I don't agree as there will be certain situations where a lower response time will "feel" better. Polling rate is general has "other" side effects when it comes to tracking and resolution scaling. I'm too lazy to explain atm.


PS: I'm not in the position to really critique, but the mice listed are all over the place in terms subjective shape and properties. There are many mice that perform really well, if not better than a lot of the mice listed in this thread. Honestly looks like someone did window shopping and made a list of all the "cool" products. No offense.

Wow awesome thread. I found the guide on ESR forums very helpful.

You didn't mention the most important thing TO LOOK FOR that nobody ever mentions and the main reason to pick a mouse for med/low sensitivity : MAXIMUM TRACKING SPEED (inches per second).
Ever wondered why people like the g400/mx518 so much? It tracks 150 ips (4 m/s) at 800dpi, just like the deathadder at 1800, making it better for lower sensitivities.
