Best mice these days? - Page 10

post #91 of 106
I wonder if the shell design makes them wear out fast or that batch had just bad switches. I used my Abyssus about 4 months and didn't notice any wear on the feedback.

Indeed. I owned a DeathAdder and it picked at my steelseries mouse pad and just felt like a piece of crap in general. It would make cracking noises when squeezed ever-so-gently in my hand (such as when picking it up to move it on the mouse pad). The build quality of the DeathAdder feels very low to me.

Which is a shame, because other than that (and the fact that it freaking picks at my nice mouse pad), I like it.

What about SteelSeries Sensei? I cant decide between Sensei and Razer Lachesis V2...

But I must be honest : Logitech have the best build quality!

They used to have the best build quality for mice. I've had some pretty bad luck with the last 3-4 mice I've gotten from them (starting with the G600 on). However, the G710 keyboard seems to be an absolute rock, obviously it's made by different designers.

From my experience, from their latest mice (savu, kone pure, on), Roccat seems to have the best build quality.

Recently switched from the DA 3.5G to the G400.
The reason is because i rlly disliked the glossy sides of the DA biggrin.gif, the overall build quality and sensor was good imo.
I don't notice alot of difference between the sensors as they are both prediction free, so get the cheapest u could get and that is the G400 ( If u like the shape of it )

I'm using a DA 2013 at the moment. The sides are now rubberized instead of glossy. The sensor is better for me than previous DAs as well because I can use 800DPI on it. I was using a G400 previously but I prefer the DA shape.

phl0w, your QcK Mini is cloth, so its surface might be the cause for the "negative acceleration" that you experienced with your Taipan because of its laser illumination. Unless I am wrong, lasers are so precise, they require surfaces that would be less imperfectly flat.
Can anyone confirm this?

Apparently the Avago 98xx series (Taipan uses 9818) "features" acceleration which rears its ugly head very inconsistently. It could very well be that a black cloth surface induces more acceleration than for instance a finely grained hard pad. The sensor's acceleration, however, cannot be turned off, which is a no-go in my book.

Yeah, that's why I do not recommend the Avago 9500/9800 based sensors for games.

Also, dark surfaces might impede the tracking precision of optical sensors? popups, do you agree?
post #100 of 106
they need more avago 3090 based mice wouldn,t mind something a little bigger than the g400
