Need a Replacement to my X8

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
as the title says i need a new mouse to replace my Sidewinder X8. i've had this guy for ages and its finally failed on me. i'm pretty sure im a palm gripper considering the type of mouse the sidewinder is and i'd prefer the mouse be around or under $100 and wireless. i JUST bought a g700 to replace my X8 and i'm returning it tomorrow before i throw it at a wall. most uncomfortable mouse i've ever used and definitely NOT a palm grip mouse... anyone has any good suggestions??

i've been reading through forums and people have suggested the Mamba and Naos 5000; however the naos is wired and neither mouse has a left-right scroll wheel.. not to mention all the hardware nightmares i've heard about razer products...

sumary:
What's your grip style? Palm

2. What's your sensitivity? up to 5000DPI

3. What's your maximum budget? $100

4. Do you want additional buttons? Yes

ive had my razer deathadder for several years and have never had an issue with it. i was debating on getting the 2013 version but there is nothing wrong with mine so i decided not to get it. havent had an issue with my black widow either.

good to hear you haven't had any issues. i would hope razer has gotten past that era where all their stuff would malfunction. does the deathadder have left-right scrolling?

It is called side scrolling, and no, it doesn't, and it is not wireless either.
