Modern equivalent of this mouse? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at the G400 I suppose then.

I sort have a hybrid mouse grip, half way between a palm and a finger grip. My palm is more at the back of the mouse, and where my fingers connect to my palm rests in the middle.
Would this be okay for a G400? Thanks for all the help so far! +rep to you all tongue.gif

EDIT: I also have a wooden desk (it has grains, pretty smooth to the touch though), . Is this a problem?

At high DPI values a high-contrast wood grain surface can cause tracking irregularities with the G400. If you plan on using anything higher than 800 DPI, it is better to use it on a mouse mat or some other more consistent surface.

Yes, I'd say that's a problem. Even if it wasn't, you'd be a 100 times better off with a quality mouse pad because it provides much better glide and tracking than a desk.

You should have a look at the roccat savu. I own many mices (including the g400, mind you) and I find the roccat to be superious to it in every aspects. You can also grip it the exact same way you would grip a G400, since there is a small curve that allow you to rest your ring finger, as shown in this picture.


The roccat savu is really light, my G400 felt very heavy once I got used to it. The textured sides make it very easy to lift. It's most likely the best mice that I ever used.


EDIT : I saw that you are interested in the G9x, keep in mind that the savu have a similar size and can be used almost the same way. The top is more curvy than on the G9x though. I would also say that the internals are much higher quality.
