Mouse with good accuracy?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Guys, I've been through 6 different mice.

1. stock Dell optical mouse from years ago
2. Some wireless Logitech Mouse combo from 3+ years ago
3. I/O Gear Cheap laser mouse
4. Mk520 mouse and keyboard combo logitech a year ago
5. Microsoft 3000 Mouse.
6. Performance MX Logitech..

Holy crap they all suck except the no. 1 Dell Stock optical mice..

Not sure why but I found all of them less accurate than the dell stock.

Maybe my criteria is wrong but I try making UBER small circles/movements with the mice, and the dell stock mice is the only thing that tracks it well.. The rest, including performance MX on the highest DPI (1500) settings just randomly make small up, down, sideways, inaccurate movement.. the Dell stock: ACTUAL little circles.

I found it easier to use the Dell's for some random drawing and gaming..

Any suggestions for something that doesn't break the bank?

very disappointed with the MX.. got it 50 bucks brand new.. guess that's why it was on sale >.<<br />
OMG and scrolling is a nightmare with the MX frown.gif

The only crap about the Dell stock is that it's not as comfy and it's wired.. THAT's it frown.gif T.T

Just go for a mouse with a perfect optical sensor. Going to recommend the usual Savu, DeathAdder, Zowie Ec1, Zowie AM, Naos 3200, G400.
Take your pick among the shapes, if you really want a comfy one then I'd personally go for a Naos, but that's just my choice.
There are very few really good wireless gaming mice. I'd probably go for a Roccat Pyra if I were on a budget, but the blue optic sensor does have prediction. There are other mice like the Mamba and RAT9 but they're very expensive and the PTE has lift off issues. I'd personally just stick to wired and choose one of the mice I listed above.

Mionix Naos 3200 has the older avago 3060 and has prediction and hence won't be as accurate as the newer sensors on the market I guess. but prediction could be totally preference though

That's true, but the Naos shell never disappoints. If OP can deal with prediction then I think the Naos is a great choice.

Logitech scroll wheels tend to be a little less tactile than a lot of others. It's still clicky though, not dual mode free scrolling. The scroll wheel on the DeathAdder is really nice though, feels incredibly solid.

Sorry, but... If I understand OP correctly, it's just the prediction he is mentioning. And why even list this mouse with "perfect sensors", and no, the shell can disappoint!

Almost all mice today have clicky wheels. All that kotakueuro mentioned has clicky wheels. G400 is the best "bang for the buck" out there right now.

I've got the Logitech G500.

Great feeling mouse. You're able to place weights in it if you prefer a heavier feel too. Also, it comes with a dual mode wheel for either clicky or free scrolling.

Anything without prediction.

Does prediction make the mouse jittery?
