Mouse like Razer Dimondback - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
So the razer abyssus would be the one with the closet feel. Im sure i can get use to a little difference in feel but I just do not want to give up how sensitive, fast, and precise my dimondback is in game play is all. I do not want to buy a mouse that is slower or has lag time. Any other mouse that has the side buttons like the dimondback with the same specs(speed sensitivity precision)

What about the Razer Taipan whats it like for fps compared to a dimondback

Actually the abyssus will be more precise than your diamondback. You can find other mice with the same sensor as the diamondback but they won't have the same kind of shape

the tt esports saphira does have a similar shape also http://www.ttesports.com/products/product.aspx?g=gllry&p=25 and a similar sensor without prediction, but it have a low perfect control speed so if you are a low sensitivity gamer it will not be good enough at 400dpi

I can get the Diamondback to malfunction more easily than the Deathadder. The Diamondback also has prediction. So the Abyssus should be better.in many ways than the old Diamondback. Say a possible 1000Hz and no drivers required.

I heard CM Storm Recon is pretty good and similar in shape and size, just might be a bit taller than Diamondback.

Only issue is software seems to be buggy now so people would install the software, set everything up and save it to onboard memory, and uninstall software.

I was in the exact same predicament a couple months ago as you are now. I have used my diamondback green plasma mouse for exactly 7 years, like you. The right button started to act up and required a lot of force to click. I decided it was time to move on. After many recommendations I picked up the Razer Deathadder black edition. I instantly noticed that the shape was terrible, I was so accustomed to the diamondback shape that the deathadder was just too unnatural to me. I used it for a bit and eventually started having issues with the mouse double clicking on a single click. I sold the mouse on ebay and picked up a refurbed G400 for $20. I loved the precision of the mouse and the feel of it but it still nothing like the diamondback shape. I held on to it and purchased a CM Storm Spawn. Let me tell you, this is the best mouse I've ever used. At first the mouse shape seemed weird, it's small and kind of "Quasimodo, the hunchback of Notre-Dame" shaped. First time I used the mouse my hand just fit perfectly, the tactile response is great, the clicks are amazing, the mouse is light. Only issue is that the stock firmware has a very high LoD. So I suggest you try firmware 61 or 62 or whatever.

The diamondback was the last good mouse razer has released. Razer's newer mice have terrible longevity and their support is horrendous.

They cater mediocre products to the mindless "wanna-be pro gamer" crowd. Their keyboards are trash, don't even get me started on their headsets. I don't know much about their mouse pads or their gaming laptop. Their mice WERE good, but not anymore.

Logitech G400 and CM Storm Spawn is where it's at.
G400 has no anglesnapping, no precision, one of the most accurate sensors on the market. I believe the deathadder has similar or same sensor but the general build quality of the razer product is garbage.
And I've already covered the Spawn.

I really recommend trying out the Spawn if you liked the diamondback and you can return it if you don't like it.

I feel like a Jehova's witness trying to convert an atheist. biggrin.gif

RAT 3 is substantially wider than the diamondback, FYI.

I used a Diamondback 1600dpi for years, then ventured out to the Deathadder and made a mistake with the Imperator, used a Zowie AM for half a year and now back to the Diamondback, but this time the 3G (1800dpi) red edition. I bought it on eBay half a year ago. It was a Korean retailer and they had lots of them in stock, also the green led edition, but it wasn't cheap (almost 50 euro). So your best bet it eBay.

As was suggested, I'd try BST's mouse, while slightly shorter than Diamondback, the shape is very similar and the sensor is great. However, you have to wait a couple of months for it to be released. It's the only mouse I am interested in rigtht now. Really sad actually.
