Corsair M65

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I hopped over to Fry's this past weekend and picked up a military green Corsair Vengeance M65, and I am not sure if I want to keep it. I really like the feel of the mouse and the sensor seems pretty good (coming from a MX518 and former SS Ikari Laser). My only problem with the mouse is that the right clicker is way too sensitive; I usually use palm grip and this causes me to accidentally hit the right cliker a lot, even when just navigating the desktop and it is quite annoying. The MX518 never did that and this mouse really isn't able to be dissassembled from what I can tell. I am thinking of taking it back and getting something else.

The sniper button is pretty sick, I just wish it was a little closer to the back of the mouse, you really have to stretch your hand to get to it, and I have pretty normal size hands.

Any suggestions on a comparable mouse with a really good laser? The max I really want to spend is 80$ and something with decent resistence on the clickers, this thing is just way too sensitive on the right clicker and feels like after 6 months of use it would be even worse.

The corsair vengance uses the avago 9500 sensor the newer one the M65 the avago 9800 it are sensor used in many "laser" mice.
Avago 9500 and 9800 have acceleration.

Mouse acceleration
explained for you



describes the relationship between physical movement of the mouse and on-screen movement of the cursor.

With mouse acceleration off the cursor will always move the same distance regardless of the speed at which the mouse is moved.

With mouse acceleration on the cursor will move further when the mouse is moved at a faster pace.



So ask yourself the question if you want acceleration or not.
If you dont mind there are a loth of mice to choose from who use it.
You say u use a palm grip, I would advise looking into Mionix Naos 5000 if you have big hands else you can look at roccat kone+ steelserie sensei or a CM Storm Sentinel Advance II.

If you do mind acceleration you could look into optical mice like the all know logitech g400 razer deathadder or a cm storm recon.

This are all just examples for palm grip.

If you want more advise answer please the following questions,

1. What's your grip style?

2. What's your sensitivity?

3. What's your maximum budget?

4. Do you want additional buttons?

5. What games do you play?

6. Do you mind about prediction?

7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.
some examples: LOD, ambidextrous shape, weight, wireless, non-braided cord, glossy finish, button activation force, driverless, onboard memory, prefered best dpi setting etc

And forgot to ask what is youre handsize small medium larger hand.

assuming you play FPS, I would look at the Logitech G9x. mostly its popular with claw grip users, but with the larger grip, it is palm grip friendly.

I want something with a really good sensor that isn't a cheap piece of garbage. I thought about the Mionix, but after reading the reviews by some users it seems the mouse breaks really easily and bricks when you try to update the firmware, that's pretty pathetic.

The G9X looks really ugly, so I definitely won't be getting that.
