Which gaming mice should i get?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi.

This is my first post so i hope it is were i needs to be:)

But i'm looking for a new gaming mouse because currently i have a cheap dell.

I have done some research and i think i wan't either the R.A.T 9, Razer Mamba or the Logitech g700. (i know that the rat 7 was really bad but i've heard that all the problems got fixed but it may be wrong?)

But if there's another mouse of the same "quality" (you know what a mean) that you would recommend instead please tell me.

What i'm most looking for in a gaming mice is comfortability and precision. Of course also features but comfortability and precision is most important.

Also i don't use a high dpi and i use claw grip right now but that's because the mouse that i have is too small for palm grip. So i don't know what i would like best frown.gif .

All help would be appreciated smile.gif .

Also sorry for bad english.

If you plan to play mmos in the future take a look at the Logitech g600. If not the g500 is a very nice desktop rodent to have. The g500 has removable/addable weights for your comfort.

First of all welcome to OCN biggrin.gif.
If you prefer palm grip mice then the Logitech G400 and Razer Deathadder are great.
Both track very well on low DPI (400,450)

I second the G400, for the price especially it can't really be beaten! I use mine for regular use (Facebook, E-Mails etc), to 3D Design and Modelling to games.
The next step up for me is something like a RAT 7 or a RAT9 as mentioned, supposedly the G500, G600 are bad in comparison to the G400 though! (Only what I've heard)

First of all thanks for the responses.

I forget to mention that i mainly play FPS.

Also if we were to put the rat 9, Razer Mamba and logitech g700 in a straight up "fight" which one is then best?

I'll second a vote for the Deathadder, it is a great mouse and very durable. (Survived a few rage filled impacts with various walls around my house biggrin.gif)

Well, unless someone has owned both and preferred one from the other... then not many will be able to give a real opinion.

I own the G700 and love using the side keys for quickly switching to my aux weapon, reloading, changing back to primary and also fire rate.

I sit around 12ft away from my receiver/PC and it picks up things perfectly fine without much issue. I also have profiles pretty much set up for EVERY game and it switches to each one on the fly without issues. Plus it allows me to have multiple profiles for the same game.

Plus it looks very sexy. wink.gif

Also sorry for bad english.

If you're an MMO player , i highly recommend the nagga! Those 12 buttons changed my pvp life , i practically saw an 80% increase in my pvp performance biggrin.gif

Thanks for the responses again smile.gif .

Seems like it is either gonna be a g700 or a deathadder looking at the responses.

But If we were to put the deathadder against the mamba.

Does the mamba have a better sensor? Or is it more comfortable or is it just a waste of money?
