Mouse Suggestion

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,

Need your help on deciding on a new mouse.

My MMO 7 gave up after just 8 months of use.. I had some z-axis tracking issues every now and then, but over the past few weeks these had become more frequent and new issues started to arise such as the mouse turning off on it's own (and needing replugging), not tracking for a few seconds if I lifted the mouse, etc.

So I've decided to email the company I bought it from, and as they had no stock, they have informed me that they will refund me.

Now my question is, what mouse should I go for?

1. What's your grip style?

- Fingertip grip

2. What's your sensitivity?

- Not sure of the numbers, but I've got it set to high- probably 3200dpi

3. What's your maximum budget?

- No maximum budget

4. Do you want additional buttons?

- Yes (4+ is a must)

5. What games do you play?

- Mostly Action RTS/MOBA (DotA/DotA2 for those who are aware - the originator of League of Legends - so games along those lines) and occasionally some FPS

6. Other relevant information:

- I don't mind if it's wired or wireless; actually I think I might prefer wired.
- I am also using the Razer Scarab as my mousepad.
- I only used the 4 thumb buttons on the MMO 7 (the 5D and thumb button I found quite hard to use because of my grip)

I was very happy with my MMO 7 functionality and comfort wise, so it would still be one of my options IF they have fixed the tracker issues in their new model (MCB437130002/04/1). I used to have the Cyborg CCB437130002/04/1 model.

I am considering the following, but not exclusively: Razer Naga, Razer Naga Hex, Logitech G600, Logitech G700, Mad Catz Cyborg MMO 7.

Thanks alot!

Hello,
I'm a former Naga user, now using an Imperator. I used the Naga for a year or so to play exclusively mmo's. The fact is that the mouse is quite small (i'm a full palm gripper) and therefore uncomfortable (maybe more adapted to your grip). However the full numpad on the thumb is definitly an advantage in mmo's ... Not sure it is as useful in moba's. Being a LoL player I can tell you that you don't need more than 2 buttons on your thumb but that's because I learned how to use my left hand. I would rather(Razer) recomend Naga Hex for moba. Again G600, I never used it but it feels like an awefull lot of buttons. Hope it helps .

if you're not playing any mmos then you dont need the naga or the g600

i currently play a ton of dota/dota2 and am using a cm storm xornet. im not sure what you need 4+ extra buttons on the side for when playing a moba, when all you need is QWER (basically).

so it seems the Razer Naga Hex is your best bet.

Well everyone has their own style of play.

I play semi-professional, and while others (for example Dendi) use the keyboard fully (he's really a pianist), some others (including me) have their item slots/courier bindings/etc. bound to the mouse.

This way I can use QWER and any items in split of a second.

I guess it's a matter of preference, but I'd rather go with a mouse that has buttons (I guess am also future proofing) than go with one that doesn't.

True, i can see having those buttons on the thum can be an advantage.
I'm guessing as a semi-pro you don't play a lot of other games. Can you tell us what mouse - keyboard you play on ?
Anyhow naga hex has 6 on the side, you could bind your entire inventory (if it is any useful ) ! The software/driver provided by razer (synapse 2.0) allows you to bind keys or keyboard fonction on your mouse (provided you have a synapse-enabled razer keyboard )

Indeed.. DotA2 is more or less the only game I play.

I have been wondering if the Hex would be a good choice as well, however the Philips Twin Eye sensor (the same as the MMO 7) does indeed worry me; and also the bad reputation for Razer products breaking down relatively quickly and easily.

The mouse I used to play on was the Cyborg MMO 7 (before it cropped up with all these issues) and a Corsair Vengeance K90.

Basically I have been looking at the following:

- Razer Naga
- Razer Naga Hex
- Corsair M90
- Logitech G600
- Logitech G700

The G600 is probably being elimited due to not being suitable for the fingertip grip which leaves me with the others.
The major cons of the Razers are reliability issues (and the fact that the Nagas 12 button layout might be hard to use/get used to).
The major concern with the MMO 7 are the z-axis issues I've faced before and the random turning off.
The G700 doesnt have enough thumb buttons (need 6+ actually)

The Corsair M90 I am not quite sure how accessible the thumb buttons are.

I am leaning towards getting another MMO 7 (I used to have the old model; which was still Cyborg branded) and see how that goes. If any issues crop up, I'll probably return for a refund and look for an alternative

Doesn't Dendi just use a SteelSeries Sensei? Personally I think having all those buttons on the mouse would confuse me more than anything. I just have my item abilities bound to DFZXCV

True fact about Razer.
Corsair mice have quite a good reputation and the m95 is (or will be very soon ) available. it's more like a refresh but they changed the switches (more durable) and the sensor (more dpi) without quite changing the feel it had. May i sugest you try the thumb layout at the local store ? Looks like more intuitive than the naga.

Indeed, as I noted earlier, Dendi uses the keyboard for his item binds..

Usually though they have them in boxes and you cant really test drive them. Not sure where (in London) you can really test drive mice.. I've been to a few Currys but meh.. they only had 1 on display..
