A mice needed. Suggestions are welcome.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
It's been 4½ years I am using my Logitech G9 mice. It's a wonderful unit, I loved it, especially that it was super comfortable for me. But now I think it's time for a change. I would simply go for the G9X, but two things are refraining me from it. I had this double click problem on my G9, on season change there was this double click problem, mice kept double clicking on single click, and I had to blow air from my mouth on the left button to solve the issue, until the problem was gone, and the other thing is, that wide load grip, I loved that grip, but it peeled off just after a year, I guess G9X has the same materials used for the wide load grip too? It's an important factor for me.
I was looking at some Corsair mice, M65, M90 etc, and I love the build quality, aluminum and all. But I hear that they are pretty heavy without any weight cartridge, which is not good for me. All this time I used the G9 without any weights. I like light mice, other than some rarest occasions when I used some weight was some sniping environments.
So, which one should I get? G9X or any of the Corsair models? Once again I am briefing my requirements here,

- The mice should be light weight.
- Should be super comfortable.
- A soft grip would be great, like the wide load grip of the G9/G9X
- Side buttons (back/forward) buttons are a must. But I guess all the recent gaming mice have this nowadays.
- Continuous/precise mice wheel option, like the G9/G9X would be nice to have.
- Budget is 80-90$ max.
- Brand: Logitech, Corsair, Microsoft. Nothing else please.
- I am a Palm gripper , not Claw.
- The size of my palm is 11 cm / 8.5 cm.

Thanks in advance.

i like my sensei mouse. but i think your looking into the g400 or g400s , they got new switches in tho (i heard) , you can repair your mouse with new switchs or open it up and bend back the the little metal part on the inside and button would work.

Why are you against anything but logitech, microsoft and corsair? The Mionix Naos 3200 fits all your requirements.

Because I like those brands, not others. They have served me splendidly all this long.

Eh, sounds like you really want another G9. The best alternative those manufacturers offer for a palm gripper right now is G400, AFAIK. Be aware, it's mighty different from G9.

About brands - I never look at the brand much. It's the product you're buying, not the brand. No matter how good/bad brand you think it is, it doesn't give you but a vague hint of the product, and in the end it all depends on which product is the best for your purposes

Thanks for the advice on G400.
About brand preference, well, self satisfaction is bigger than anything for me, if I buy those newly popped up brand, I will never be mentally satisfied, doesn't matter if the product is superior than other or not.

Dont think you can go wrong with the G400, especially if you prefer to not have weights. I had an older one with the smaller style glide pads and i wore the pads off before the switches or sensor failed. The newer ones have much better pads on them. I love my mionix more though. wink.gif
