youre exactly the prey for every marketeer of mice out there, get some flashy led high dpi and you drool all over it. drool.gif

sadly enough most people are just as clueless as you on mice.

reality is, you didnt check the core of the mouse, what sensor does it use has it got acceleration, prediction, angle snapping, has it stable hertz polling.
Is the form factor right for my kind of gripstyle and handsize etcetera.

Here on this forum of mice we try to educate people like you to look beyond the flashy led and look at the internals of a mice and not the marketing gimmicks like high dpi and a flashy led.
And probably a gold plated usb cable wich is only gold plated out the outsides of it, wich hasnt got any benifits then.

If you want to learn more about a mouse, have a look at this thread

very good interesting read.

Quite an elitist response even if considerably true to an extent ^^

Your grip preference sounds a little flexible from the range of mice you provided. I'm somewhat adaptive myself in grip style to some degree also mid-size hands.

My choices out of the list of mice your considering would be the Logitech G400 - ambidextrous & Roccat Savu right handed ergo. Those are solid sensors in the optical arena.

Looking at the other laser mice you mentioned I couldn't suggest them to you because I feel in my own opinion there are better laser sensors now and rather than the Kone I'd look at the Roccat Kone Pure which does have the updated A9800 sensor. IMO a better choice if your looking at laser mice.

If you mainly FPS I'd favor an optical sensor. If your more RPG, MMO, RTS, then a laser is just as adequate and sometimes preferred by some leaving your choices open to either optical or laser.

So it's up to you to decide which grip style out of these mice ambidextrous and right handed ergo is what your seeking. Look at the price ranges and decide what your willing to spend.

G400 (400-3600 DPI) I've owned briefly a long time ago. Honestly I thought it was awkward and it didn't appeal to me so I went with another mouse at the time. It's a solid mouse proven by many. I'll let G400 owners chime in to provide info on things they like or dislike about the G400. I did not find the shell comfortable and I ended clicking the side buttons frequently by accident.

I own the Roccat Savu and using it as my main gaming mouse and the one I'd suggest to you as a personal preference. The Savu is as solid as any optical and at 400 / 800 / 1600 DPI and highly accurate.

As for quirks, the non-slip grip wears after time which varies with the type of usage and amount of time. It's a gradual wearing and I don't notice it. Even with this quirk I love the Savu. I've come quite fond of the varying grips I can hold this mouse. As for comfort obviously that depends on each person. I used it at first at work and home more than 12 hours a day and found my hand cramped by the end of the day. Now I only use it at home and comfort is no longer an issue. Haven't had hand cramping at all.

Lastly the Roccat Kone Pure is a solid laser mouse up to 8000 DPI that is Kone shape but updated sensor and you should take the Kone off your list and put the Kone Pure in it's place.

Roccat has some pretty good macro options with easy+shift you should look into. I did a review of the Savu here if you want to look a bit more into it. Either Savu or Kone Pure have easy+shift macros which doubles the mouses macros.

Too bad there aren't more retailers with mice on shelves for people to try because a lot of the time regardless of performance if you hate putting your hand on the mouse nothing else will matter. Good luck hope I gave you some food for thought. smile.gif

If you live in the US the Roccat Savu can be had for $50 from Microcenter while the G400 can be found for $40 (30 when on sale at Best Buy, Newegg or Amazon). When I had the G400 the mouse tracked really well on all the surfaces I've used it on and felt very precise and accurate. It went back since my hand favored the Deathadder more.

A lot of people seem to like the more expensive choices such as the roccat savu and steelseries sensei raw,

I'm thinking of the roccat Kone pure but that is also another expensive option.

What about mice like the steelseries kinzu and razer abyssus? Are these mice good In their sensor?

Depending on the surface Abyssus is a very good mouse at 450 CPI, but 3 buttons only.

Here are my test results with it:

that reply wasn't at all arrogant or pretentious.

I'm not saying I would ever use 8000 DPI, idk who would. I'm just saying the options to customize everything from weight to dpi and LED color are very nice for a mouse that's only $40.

also, the Anker has Omron micro switches, 1000 polling rate, 12000 frame rate, an Avago ADNS-9800 sensor and up to 150ips. you can turn acceleration up to 30 g or disable it.

show me a mouse that has better features than that for $40. I understand you're skeptical because it's a new product, but that doesn't mean you should discount it or flame other people for suggesting it.

Looks like garbage to me. No offense if you're affiliated with the company.
post #20 of 20
You never mentioned what DPI you like to use. If you find the DeathAdder too big, you probably won't like the G400 either. I know it's a popular mouse here but I think it's rather overrated for its comfort and build quality.

For your grip style, the Abyssus and Savu are very good. Unless you play at a DPI >1800 you're probably better off sticking to an optical sensor. With a laser mouse such as the Sensei, you really should get a hard mouse pad.

Also, if you're in the US (not sure how much this applies elsewhere) I really suggest shopping around if you're looking for a Savu or Sensei. They go on sale relatively often and can be purchased for quite a bit less. I bought my Savu from Tigerdirect for $40 and the Sensei Raw can often be purchased for around $50.
