Thread Starter 
So I am fairly new to gaming mice and have been trying them out for a few weeks now going to stores seeing what I like best etc... and also reading the reviews from what other people have said.

This thread is dedicated to listing the worst and best mice known. I will start:


Bad mice:

Kinzu, Kinzu V2, Kinzu V2 Pro, Sensei, Logitech M500.

Reasons:

Kinzu - massive negative acceleration low IPS malfunction speed

Kinzu V2 - low IPS malfunction speed, impossible to grip surface without slipping.

Kinzu V2 Pro - '' '' '' ''

Sensei - Bad grip awful surface (same problem as Kinzu V2), stiff buttons and massively overpriced for a flagship mouse.

Logitech M500 - Very inaccurate pointing and tracking, positive acceleration.

OK mice:

Logitech G400/MX518, Logitech M100/B110, Microsoft Comfort Mouse 6000, MS Basic Optical, Performance Mouse MX, Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500, Razer DA 3.5G

Logitech G400/MX518: Superb tracking and performance, shape is awkward and can render this mouse unusable for some

Logitech M100: Not very good tracking, not as good as MS Basic Optical but for £8 very good mouse (1/2 price of MS basic).

MS Basic Optical: Mediocre tracking but very nice feel and lightweight, also good surface for grip.

Razer DA 3.5G - Lift off distance, jitter.




Best mice: IE 3.0, WMO, IMO 1.1, Razer DA 3G.

IE 3.0 - 400 DPI but very good tracking but shape is perfect (something the G400/MX518 may lack for some).

WMO - Lightweight great tracking.

IMO 1.1 - " " " "

Razer DA 3G - Big mouse but superb sensor.

Please add to list and feel free to modify mine.

Agreed.
Plus you didnt even mention the Cyborg mice, which would be on both good and bad lists.
Good because it is a beautiful mouse, good grip, most responsive mouse ive ever used.
Bad because they often have problems, not all but alot of them.

where is the Logitech G9X? one of the best mice available. i believe there is no PERFECT MOUSE. it's just personal preference. and every person is different in this matter.

Idk what you have been reading but this list seems...off...even for being opinion based, things like negating the fact that the MX518 was plagued by poor QA issues, or that the Sensei is not only priced the same as many competitors but typically offers more functionality and the only common complaint I've seen with it is that the sensor has inherent 5% acceleration.

My pick would be ROCCAT Savu, oh, not on your list... like many other good mice.

EDIT: Deathadder 3G had jitter as well, 3G and 3.5G are equal...

Well, his fault for not reading reviews / opinions before buying.
Now he goes on our nerves with this useless thread.
