G700s? Deathadder?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I got a g700s in the mail from logitech a few days ago to replace my g700 with failing buttons.

During the wait I went to BB and bought a deathadder and now I'm stuck between which one to keep.

The deathadder seems to glide alot easier on my qck than the original g700 (the S in still in the box, I dont want to open it effecting the resale value) but it may just be wore down feet on my g700.

The 700 is also quite heavier even with the battery out which I thought I preferred, but now I'm liking the way I can whip around the DA.

I do miss the extra buttons on the g700 for rpg's and button heavy games. I'm super comfy with DA as well so now I'm torn. I mostly play fps so the extra buttons aren't always necessary but I do love them for Skyrim and ****.

I have a week to return the DA but I'm not sure, I could keep them both but I'd rather get the $60 back on one of these and just use one mouse.

Any of you have a preference or went from one of these mice to the other?

I used to have a Deathadder, and now have a Gigabyte 6900 (looks kind of close to the g700 i guess)

what i liked a lot with the deathadder was that it had great software and could store profiles. I had mine set up so that i could hold one of the side buttons and scroll to adjust the sensitivity, which was very useful (it was called on-the-fly sensitivity) the only thing i didn't like about my deathadder, was that for how much it cost, it seemed like it did not last very long, but i carried it everywhere with me with my laptop so that's not much of a surprise. the scroll wheel relies on a very small piece of plastic to make it turn the sensor that scrolls.

my new mouse, i have only left plugged into my desktop, and it seems stupid, but my favorite thing about it is that it has a tilted scroll wheel and is just comfortable to use. it has a button for changing the sensitivity, one for color of the lights, the software is pretty good, etc.

the deathadder was a good mouse, and was always very smooth, but the gigabyte is much more comfortable and has extra little things that make using it a pleasure.

ultimately the choice is yours. every mouse has its ups and downs , but it all comes down to feel and the comfort of actually using it. after all, it is the thing you will have your hand on almost always while you are using your computer

i play BF2 and COD MW3 right now on my desktop, i havent used my deathadder in over a year though, because the scroll wheel broke. i'll hook it up and see how i like it today.

I really like the button placement on the deathadder, the left and right click are comfy. (i grabbed it and am using it on my laptop right now)

as much as i liked my deathadder, its very hard to use when the scroll wheel doesn't scroll. both mice are comfy, i like that the deathadder can be taken apart to clean (the whole top matte finish part just snaps off)

I'm sure you will end up happy with whatever mouse you choose, i personally like wired mice because i don't like having to replace batteries. the mouse i use at work is a wireless bluetooth mouse which has a sensor that changes the laser light based on how much the mouse is moving (light gets brighter faster the mouse moves and turns off when it is not moved) and if you start using it after it has been sitting still for a few minutes, it will freak out and bolt all over the screen for a second. it gets much worse when the batteries are low, even before the battery warning light comes on.
