Looking For A Quality Build Mouse

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I was gonna post in the mice recommendation thread but, sadly, no one seems to post there.

 

1. What's your grip style? Claw

2. What's your sensitivity? Medium

3. What's your maximum budget? ~$80

4. Do you want additional buttons? 2 at most

5. What games do you play? CS:S/CS:GO

6. Do you mind about prediction? No Prediction

7. Other relevant information:
The most important thing is build quality and no Razer, I've gone through 2 Razer mice in a fairly short time (less than a year each).

 

Thank you in advance for all the help, proper posts will be rewarded accordingly.

Look up the Roccat Savu. 

No acceleration / prediction, lift off distance is ultra low, optical, 4000 dpi, you can change the color of the LEDs and the build quality is superb. 

And it also weight only 90g.

sometimes i think someone here should at least make a list of all 3090er mice and ******* sticky that ****. companies also notice that stuff and possibly release more 3090. i mean here and in every other community every tryhard gamer basically preaches mlt04, 3090 or deathadder... why even talk about any other mouse.

- Cable is really lightweight as well, since getting the mouse I am pleasantly surprised that it is not a braided cable (which adds weight/stiffness)
- Huge mousefeet, they glide really well on both my glass mousepad (Icemat) and my cloth mousepad (Qck+)
- Also comes with a spare pair of mouse feet.
- No annoying drivers
- Great for palm gripping.
- "Notchy"/Heavy Scroll wheel - great for FPS games where you intend to only scroll the wheel a specific number of 'steps'.
- Heavier Mouse 1/2 switches so you'll never misclick (like M2 on a Deathadder).

Cons:
- "Notchy"/Heavy Scroll wheel - not so great for using internet browsers or games where you want to scroll in and out really quickly.
- Can't turn off the LED that illuminates the mousewheel.

If you don't mind wireless, I'll suggest the Logitech M510. It's $40 MSRP, but I got mine for $15 at Best Buy with a sale and coupon. There are two side buttons that are the back/forward function for a browser or similar by default, unless you download Logitech's really crappy software for modifying functions (don't get it: it locked up my mouse within a week before I uninstalled it). They are labeled Mouse Button 4 and Mouse Button 5 in Star Wars Battlefront, so you can definitely customize them within a game environment without the software.

It has come to my attention that the m65 has some sensor issues with input lag, i am an m60 owner and the M60 does not have an input lag issue. You can confirm this by heading over to the Corsair forums where everyone agrees that the M60 is better due to no input-lag. I love my M60 AMAZING build quality. Full aluminum chassis with a nice rubbery grip on top. I wish it had side rubber grips, but unfortunately its a rougher plastic grip.

I recommend not getting the Corsair M60 or M65. The software sucks, and the shape is weird. Yes, it looks cool. Yes, you will want it to work. If you are one of those people that want things to work badly enough you might even tell yourself its fine and stick with it, but the fact is, the mouse shape is flawed.

If you lift it up at any kind of angle, the side plastic catches and scrapes against your mouse pad. The mouse is too small to palm grip, and it also feels weird using a claw grip because the mouse is very wide at the front and very narrow at the back. The sniper button is a useless feature that will spend more time getting you killed than helping you. Precision aiming sucks with the mouse again because it is too wide, you don't feel precise with it.

If you come from any kind of normal shaped mouse, it is going to be a long adjustment period for this mouse. And if you happen to use a different, more normal shaped mouse at work for example, then you might never get used too it. At any rate, whats the point in spending a bunch of money on a mouse if you have to spend an adjustment period getting used to the shape? Seems silly to me. What you really want if you are a gaming enthusiast is a mouse that feels as invisible in your hand as possible. The Corsair mouse is a major distraction in both form and function IMO.

I think I'm going back to a Zowie.

I can see where you think all of this and you have some valid points, but i think we all need to keep in mind everyone has their preferences. So what might bet to small or large to you might not be for someone else. I think your best route is to go into a store and try a few mice out for yourself.

In the end I find no issue with the M60's sensor, the build quality is great and i quite like the shape of it. Personally the shape or weight has not caused any issues.
