Large Hands / Palm Grip. What to get for multi-button "MMO style"??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'll start by saying that my favorite previously owned mice in terms of ergonomics, sensor, and overall feel have been the following 3:

  • Logitech G500 (Current Mouse)
  • Logitech G5
  • Razer Deathadder (build quality and bad durability aside)

I need something with more buttons as I have picked up MMOs again recently and really get a benefit out of having extras. I purchased a Corsair M95 which is a decent mouse but it is WAY too small for my hand and I dislike the tracking on it. It feels inaccurate and sluggish compared to the G500 I am switching from.

I am trying to avoid the Razer Naga because I've had many razer products before and really dislike Synapse and the build / reliability of what they make. They haven't lasted me like Logitech or other brands.

I am avoiding the G600 because it is an older design using (from what I've read) a so-so sensor. I also dislike that old rubber scroll wheel design logitech used to use on the g5. The scroll wheel seems the same on this.

I looked at the Cyborg (previously R.A.T.) MMO 7 and liked it outside of the small multi-directional button and reliability / durability concerns.

The one that stands out most to me currently is the Logitech G700s, It has a few more buttons than the G500 with similar style / build materials. My only concern is the sensor, though I might be overly paranoid after using the Corsair M95.

Are there any other mice I may want to consider? I am likely going for the G700s if I can't find anything better, though I wish it had maybe 1-2 more buttons.

I'll edit that, I was specifically speaking about the style and ergonomics of mice I've previously owned. Each one had at least 2 years of use on it and each one was great in terms of sensor responsiveness and feel.

I'm not happy with the m95 on my desk right now. Have you used a g600 yourself? How was the tracking compared to the previous logitech mice? (g400, g5, g500, etc)

Just wanted to update:

I returned the M95 and got a G700s after reading THIS article
Quote:
What is noticeable, however, is the slight delay of the M95 mouse, between input and when the cursor moves on the screen. The G700s responds immediately. By using a 120Hz monitor and a high-speed camera we were able to capture this difference. This can likely be solved by a firmware update. The firmware we used for the test was v2.16 sw-1.23.

Update: Corsair told us that they're working hard on solving the lag. We'll keep you posted.

Both mice are equipped with the same Avago ADNS-9800 8200 DPI laser sensor, but their performance isn't identical. The G700s has a slightly higher lift-off distance, but the grip is better for low sense use. The M95 has the better lift-off distance, even if the difference isn't that noticeable. Something that is more noticeable is the delay between input and the cursor on the screen. Especially for games that's not something you want. The G700s didn't exhibit any noticeable input delay, not wirelessly and not via USB. The optional USB cable is on the stiff side, however, which can sometimes prevent smooth mouse movements if it touches something. Nevertheless, the Logitech G700s remains a great mouse which we can definitely recommend due to its excellent performance. We give it the Hardware.Info Silver Award. The Corsair M95 really needs a firmware update to address the input delay, before we can recommend it. As we've already mentioned, they're working hard on the issue, and we will update this review once the update is available.

Overall I'm much more satisfied. It feels better in my hand (I dislike the rubber coating Razer uses, which the m95 does as well)... This is slightly larger for my hand and the sensor is spot on.
