My mouse dilemma .

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok so.. I will add a TL;DR in the end if you don't have patience but try to bear with me.
I've had 2 Deathadder, one lasted a bit over a year and the other broke fast and I just brought it back to the store and got a DA 2013.
1st DA was great, second was annoying as **** cause I've had to use it till I could send it back.
So, now I'm two months+ in with DA 2013 and I feel like it just doesn't suit me, I can't point anything in particular, my DA 3.5 was amazing till it broke, I got double moabs in few mins in MW3. DA 2013 feels [and it is] lighter and the sensor feels flawless. But the clicks feel really imbalanced and the left click is driving me insane, I can spam click it pretty fast but it feels as if I'm clicking through air and it takes longer than the right one. I looked under the cover [didnt open it or move it just looked under with a flashlight] and the plastic shape of the clicking thing is different than DA 3.5, which explains why it clicks different.

So.. after two months+ it feels better now but I'm still considering to sell it , I'm ******* obsessed with gaming mice now and it frustrates me ;s And buy a sensei raw.

OK so TOOLONG;DIDNTREAD version -
Should I stay with my DA 2013 even after two months+ it doesn't feel good to play with OR should I buy me a Sensei Raw ?
I play mainly FPS games [COD etcetc], planning to try LOL. and need at least 3.5k DPI because I've grown to like it.
I want Genuine opinions on Sensei raw and if anyone had trouble getting used to it. Any advice will help. thanks.

You've answered your own question.

You don't like the mouse, so you obviously need to replace it with one that you do like...

Well.. there was an improvement past two months .. I feel like I might be able to get along with it. I loved DA 3.5 and there isn't much difference but this one still is kind of annoying.
On the other hand I can get a sensei raw and if people say its good I consider changing to that if I cant get used to DA13.

Listen, if you really don't like it, then you should try another mouse. If you don't like it after 2 months, you probably wont adjust to it much better (if at all more) in the future. I've heard a lot of good things about deathadders, but I thought it was just all hype (There exist cheaper mice that can do the job just the same, without drivers, for me at least). In the end, I never bought one, so I couldn't tell you what to do. I don't know about the sensei RAW, but isn't the sensei a laser mouse? The DA is an optical, as you should know. The deathadder (I'm not sure about the 2013 model though, probably the same) has what people would call, "a flawless sensor". As far as I have seen, there doesn't exist a laser mouse (yet) with a flawless sensor. So, just be aware of that. However, people who use the sensei seem to like it. Just be careful. Don't listen to me, because I don't have very much experience at all with different mice. If you do search for another mouse, remember this: You need to find one that works for you, but at the same time, you want to make sure that you are not putting yourself at any disadvantage, ESPECIALLY in an FPS game.

Problem right there, most mice perform worse on high dpi, especially in terms of cursor stability (jitter troubles). At least the 3.5G DAs were bad in that regard. I have not personally tried the DA 4G or the Sensei RAW, but if you would be on with 800 dpi mice you'd open yourself up to a lot more options.
