Need help choosing a new mouse!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
My Logitech G9 started having the cable problem when it would randomly disconnect then connect again. Tried to fix it and ruined it even more.

So now I basically need some advice choosing a new mouse. So far I've come down to:

Mionix Naos 3200
http://www.pcgarage.ro/mouse-gaming/mionix/naos-3200/

Cyborg RAT 3
http://www.pcgarage.ro/mouse-gaming/cyborg-madcatz/rat-3/

SteelSeries Kana 1.1 Black
http://www.pcgarage.ro/mouse-gaming/steelseries/kana-black-11/

I don't want to pay more than 185 RON (the price is in RON, my country's currency). You can use the website as a reference for suggestions. It's not in English but it's easy to browse.

I generally use palm grip to hold the mouse but I feel comfortable with other types of grips as well, as long as the mouse is not too small.
I also want to mention that two extra buttons (the buttons on the side of the mouse) are essential as I bind them and use them all the time (e.g. grenade on Mouse Button 4 and change fire mode on Mouse Button 5 in BF3).

Waiting forward to your responses and suggestions. Thank you.

RAT 3 isn't worth it. If you're going to get a RAT you need to get the 7 (or 9 if you want wireless). The 3 and 5 are much worse than similar mice in the price range.

I agree with the G400/G700 if you can get them in your price range.

I've heard people complain that the G400 has the cable problem as well. Randomly connecting and disconnecting. I'm skeptical about buying Logitech again.

Never happened to me and I already suggested this mouse to 5 other people that I know of and nobody ever complained. The issue you might have heard of is happening when you place something "heavy" over the cable for instance I was using a bunch of DVD's in a box and placed it over the cable (so it won't fell of the table) which caused weird issues (while gaming) but when I took the box of the cable the problem has disappeared. I wouldn't be much worried about the mouse quality (overall) especially when it comes down to sensor quality since it's flawless imo.

EDIT: As TwilightEscape said don't go for the RAT 3. It's waste of money.

the g400 has no ******* cable problems. educate yourself and learn cable management.
if you rape the cable constantly it will break somewhere of course. if you use it properly it will never break.

Don't get so upset if someone criticizes your favorite mouse.
Cable has problems - depends on how you hold, what sens you use and how you move the mouse, it bends too much where the cable enters the mouse. I got only few disonnects and my cable management on desk is fine.
