In town for a new mouse!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
Thread title says all. I have already selected what mouse pad I will be getting - Artisan Hayate soft L. However my trouble comes down to selecting a mouse. I've come from a deathadder, microsoft intelli explorer and I have tried mx518. I don't want to go back to any of these mouses. Currently I'm using a zowie EC1 (however I will be giving this to my gf when I give her my computer). So far these are what I've looked at:
- Steelseries Sensei just read it always has acceleration on no matter what.
- Biting the bullet on shipping fee and getting the Zowie eVo EC1

I play with accuracy always off, less than 2000dpi at all times and medium sensitivity in game. I place comfort as highly important. I have two different grips: palm, and palm-claw grip (in between).

If anyone has tried both the sensei and ec1, I would be interested in seeing what your opinion is!

The steelseries sensei isnt bad at all I used it for 2 months but switched since I have rather big hands it gave me cramps. It suffer from positive acceleration 5% which isnt alot. It works well on cloth mouse pads. If you like customizing dpi settings with out drivers get the sensei If you don't customize your dpi alot and use driver use the sensei raw (This mouse IPS is rather High on cloth and hard mouse pads) I'm currently using DA 2013 since my hands are big and it has a good IPS= Inches per Second

The Zowie Evo EC1 Is good too My brother actually uses it. I tried it before but I sometimes keep hitting right click since its sensitive to me. The sensor is Avago 3090 dpi steps 450/1150/2300. Its IPS is alright but if you attend to swipe you mouse fast you will need different mouse. It has optimal tracking on black mouse pads on colored ones its not that high in IPS. The max IPS IS at 450dpi/ 500hz. This mouse dosent suffer from acceleration

If you Have any more mice on your mind ask me I might have tried some already

Yeah, well only play FPS games, so no acceleration is a must. The fastest games I play is quake live. Like i said, I don't really swipe fast since I'm not at low sensitivity, I'm generally at a medium sensitivity.

Anyone else have some opinions?

The only reason im reluctant in buying zowie is because to get it to Australia it would cost $40+ in shipping...

Most comfortable: Mionix Naos 8200
Best Value: Corsair M65
Best Wireless: Razer Mamba 2012

My personal fav is the corsair m65.

also some ppl say that you dont need 8200 dpi or that it doesnt make a difference, I find if you tune the DPI all the way up and tune down the software sensitivity adjustment in-game at the same time the mouse with the higher dpi responds a lot better.

I've read a bit about the Mionix Naos 8200 too, it sounds good. Don't really want to get razer, im not a kid anymore.

Davio that also suffer from 5% postive accel just like the sensei. Only thing is it uses the avago 9800 I heard they fixed the input lag on it though
