Hey Guys,

Looking for quick suggestions on which mouse you think I should go for. Not looking for any other brand as this is my maximum budget right now.

To narrow it down first, I need to decide on the Sharkoon Drakonia or the Perixx MX-2000. Both are pretty much the same from what I've seen, though I'm leaning towards the Sharkoon Drakonia.

Once that is decided my final decision is the whether the Perixx MX-3000B is better of not. It is 8200DPi, 3200DPi more than both the other mice, but it only has 8 programmable buttons, compared to 11 on the others and the DPi switch seems to be in a bit of an awkward place. Having big hands, I'm afraid that I'll end up pressing it quite often by accident.

For those that find this in the future, the Anker High Precision Programmable Laser Gaming Mouse with 8000DPI, while being an ideal mouse in many ways, was ruled out by myself because it does not have a four way scroll wheel. But I'll add it to the poll and link it too in case people want to see the comparison.

Thanks for your help and advice.

The Perixx MX-3000B has been ruled out as it does not have a four way mouse wheel.

Decided to go for the MX-2000. With a four way wheel, 5000DPi and a pretty nice keyboard made by Pirixx, the Perixx PX-2000.

Well, have fun with your mouse. I wonder why you need a four way wheel though? I never found a purpose for that.

How many mice do you own Ino? You seem to have quite a collection. I usually return a mouse for a full refund if I don't like it or it starts developing problems.

I normally snap windows to the left or right, when doing so, at 1920x1080 the window is usually just a little too small so I use it to pan left or right.
Useful in game too if you can program it, though I've never tried.

I have the Logitech G500 and find the tilt wheel to be useful for documents and other office work. For gaming it seems I cannot get the tilt wheel binding to be used for leaning in games that have lean.

This is a small edit to include one more mouse.
Being released in two weeks at roughly £32, the Sharkoon Drakonia Black will most likely be the ideal mouse if you are someone like me.
With 11 programmable buttons, four way mouse wheel, 8200DPI and fantastic software, it should be the ideal gaming / everyday mouse as it seems to combine all aspects of every mouse on the list.

I will be testing the Perixx MX-2000, writing a review and then most likely buying the Sharkoon Drakonia Black in a month, at which point I will be writing a review on that too.
