MLG Sensei vs Naos 8200

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I currently have a RAT 9 and I hate this mouse (never going wireless on anything again), so I want to change it, but I need help choosing between 2 mice: the Sensei MLG edition or the Naos 8200. I heard a lot of great things about the Sensei, but I like the design of the Naos more since it's made specifically for right-hand use.

I don't have a particular grip style, it depends on how I'm sitting at the desk. I'm looking for a mouse which is comfortable to use, because I'll be using it a lot every day. Also, I have one question about the scroll wheel on these 2 mice. My RAT has acted weirdly recently, whenever I scroll it randomly jumps in the opposite direction (e.g. I scroll 3 times down, but the mouse goes down->up->down). Please tell me this is only because of my mouse and not something common.

The DeathAdder looks nice as well, but it's got slightly lower dpi and I usually like using a really fast mouse, although I don't know at which dpi level I'll use the mouse (over 5600 anyway). Also, I don't know how solid Razer mice are :S

Please help me choose smile.gif

The way your scroll wheel is acting is due to the encoder wearing out. Both the mice you listed use a more durable ALPS made encoder. They also both use basically the same sensor so this is mostly a question of ergonomics.

I'm looking for a mouse too. I have ruled out the sensai because it is really light. I've been using the MX500 for a decade and it's nice and heavy which I like.

I also had to rule out the 8200 because I have a claw grip and if you don't have a true palm grip its going to be awkward.

I am looking at the DeathAdder 2013 and liking it because it's heavy, has a great sensor, and is good for claw grip. only thing that sucks is that it's build quality isn't that great.

I'm also looking at the G400 now because that is a great claw grip mouse and is rock solid.

As far as DPI, I would never use the max on any of these mice (way too fast) so to me thats just a marketing gimmick that I overlook. The quality of the sensor is a lot more important to me than the DPI and the DeathAdder has a great one.

Thanks for the replies, I think I'll go for the Naos smile.gif I think the G400 is a bit too slow for my taste and since you said that the DA's build quality isn't that impressive, I'll have to rule this one out as well. Thanks for helping me choose guys!

The Deathadder 2013 has an excellent build quality.
Definitly better than a G400. (though thats nvm as Logitech support will replace it)

It's more of a palmgrip mouse.. however some do really claw it.

hmm thanks.. i wonder if best buy has all of these to test because i can't palm a mouse its so unnatural for me.

ive been using an mx500 and I can claw it really well.

The DeathAdder 2013 could be found at BestBuy, and you could price match Amazon for $55.

Do you actually use such a high DPI?
I'd consider the Naos 3200, as it's cheaper, lighter and probably has a better sensor.

From what that I have seen, the Naos 3200 has angle snapping that can't be disabled.
