Thanks for the recommendations, it'll be very useful! biggrin.gif
I don't know if craigslist is really trustful, but I'll see.

If you are still hooked on DA2013 I found it in staples for 10$ more than Canada Computers. DA2013 is Awesome, I just got it yesterday
Woooooow, I didn't know there were razer stuff in Staples, and I passed in front of their stores several times!
I'll check it out, reeeally, thanks!

Pretty sure you can get Razer stuff in Walmarts now too.

I just made some research, and there are only Razers on American Walmarts frown.gif

I recently went from a Razer Mamba (similar shape to the DA) to a Steelseries Sensei and after a couple of months of use I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. It feels much lighter and cheaper quality, I have been really considering going back to the Razer.

Also the Sensei is not right handed but ambidextrous, which is hard to adapt to once you have used a right handed mouse.

I would like to thank you all for helping me, I did find the Razer Deathadder at Staples!

I just bought it, thanks for the other inputs though, they were really helpful!

I've been using a Microsoft Intellimouse (various versions) for about the last... 8 years. I've never noticed a problem with it really, but I've been more and more curious about "gaming mice" with much higher dpi, or cpi or whatever you want to call it.

I'm curious if there's a huge, noticeable difference in going from a 'regular" mouse to a gaming mouse, and if so, exactly what is the biggest difference you personally noticed?

I had been using a tiny, $10 wireless Logitech mouse with a claw grip for years prior to getting my first gaming mouse.

Around 9 months ago I built my first PC and got all new peripherals as well. The switch to a Mionix Naos 3200 was like night and day. At first it felt a bit odd to adjust to the palm grip, but now it feels amazing.

I simply cannot believe I gamed for 5+ years on a standard mouse and keyboard. The DPI settings and LED options are awesome, but really what made all the difference was the ergonomics. I have rather large hands, and going to a palm grip felt heavenly.

Certain Intellimice have really good sensors. The intellimouse 1.1, 3.0 and wheel mouse optical 1.1. The sensors in them are better than those in many of todays gaming mice.

ii love the sensei, although it does get hot after awhile due to the rubber coating.
