Good budget gaming mouse? E-3lue Maze vs E-3lue Cobra?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So according to Amazon E-3blue which is an Chinese(maybe Japanese?) company makes pretty good gaming mouses for dirt cheap. The cobra has a ton of reviews on amazon http://www.amazon.com/Cobra-E-3lue-Precision-Control-1600dpi/dp/B005CPGHAA/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1361485169&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=e-3lue+mazer.

I went to the E-3blue site and I saw they have the "Maze" which in my opinion it looks better(more DPI and the design looks more comfortable), but it has only like 3 reviews on amazon....(they are good reviews), but makes me wonder which one is better?

Have in mind that these are -25$ mouses.

It really amazes me that the cobra has so many good reviews and the maze has hardly a few reviews... perhaps it's a new mouse? Which one should I go for?

the maze is new. depends on your preference. if my current mouse died and i only could afford one of those it would be the maze since it has a similar build to my rat5 and would fill my hand more

Have you tried it already? What really bugged was that I hardly found any review and the Cobra has so many reviews, even on youtube. But if it's relative new I can understand why.

That Cobra looks a lot like the Diamondback/Copperhead shape, which is great IMO. But I didn't see any info about the sensor, does anyone know which is used here?

Assuming I've correctly identified which sub-variety of Cobra that is, it'll be an Avago 5050. Source.

The E-blue is meh. I have it as backup and would never use it as my everyday mouse. And the Foward/back buttons are less than ergonomic.

I mean it's obviously a low budget mouse... but it has outstanding reviews, for what it is. Right now I don't have the money to spend, not even 30$ on a mouse. So I really think E-3lue is my best bet for now.

Thank you guys for all the responses, I'm still not sure if I will be able to afford the Mazer... (yeah that's how broke I'm at the moment).

If anyone else has anything else to point out about these mouses, I will appriciate it. Thanks thumb.gif
