New Mouse Needed!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a Cooler Master Storm Sentinel 1. Have had it for about 4-5 years now I think. Its been a great mouse for me. Never had a problem with it. After a year or two the rubberized coating on it started coming off and the OLED screen was burned out. So I used a Scotchbrite scouring pad and removed all the remaining rubberized coating and covered it in Carbon Fiber Film. It looked awersome.

But now I am starting to have issues with the left and right buttons. They are not as easy to click anymore and I am missing clicks etc. So its time to replace my aging peripheral.

What I am looking for a mouse that has adjustable DPI settings(or multiple DPI Profiles?), Wired or Wireless(if wireless good battery life or a recharging option please), need at least 2 buttons in the thumb area(right handed), smooth moving scroll wheel, and if there is any LED lighting on it it must be red or at least able to be changed to red. I will be using the mouse for MMORPGs(WoW, FFXI, FFXIV) FPS(BF3, BFBC2), and general web browsing etc.

Thanks guys.

The perfect mouse for you would be the Logitech G700, I have the G700 (only difference between G700 and G700s is the style) and it is amazing. It is wireless and can be recharged even while using it(basically it becomes a wired mouse) , the wireless battery life during gaming is between 3 an 5 hours, it has 4 thumb buttons and 3 index finger buttons. The DPI is adjustable and you can add macros to the buttons. Logitech is the best company for gaming their stuff is amazing. The G700 is the best mouse I have ever used.

I would recommend the Anker Laser Gaming Mouse ($40). I've been using it since the end of May and I absolutely love it. This is coming from someone who has been using the tried and true Razer Deathadder 3.5G mouse. Logitech mice are good as well, but I find them to be expensive for the similar features they offer.

Here's a user review from OCN: review link

Edit: It can go up to 8000 DPI, so if you use multiple monitors (which I see you are), it's quite handy being able to switch from a high or low setting when switching between browsing and gaming. Having 3x 1080p monitors in portrait Eyefinity, I find that 6000 DPI is a nice setting for mmorpgs/MOBAs and around 4400 DPI for FPS games.

Logitech is more durable that's why they end up costing more. They last around 2 times longer than most mice, and Razer products are terrible, they aren't high quality and they are just for looks. Personally Logitech is the only way to go when it comes to true gaming. Look at the G700s it's amazing, and you can get it off Amazon for around 80 bucks and you can get the original G700 for under 60 dollars (the only difference is the looks).
