lookin to replace a g500

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi I was looking for some advice on which mouse I should get, and this seems like as good a place as any
1. Grip Style
I use fingertip grip
2. Sensitivity
I use low sensitivity, low enough where I require several mouse movements to do a 360
3. What is your budget?
I have a budget of 40$, but keep in mind I will be using ebay.
4.Do you want additional buttons?
Yes, however, I don't need anything excessive, 2 is all I need. But I would rather have a mouse that tracks better than a mouse that is inferior but has buttons.
5. What games do you play?
CSGO
6. Do you mind Prediction?
I don't mind,but it really depends on whether or not it will help me or not. Optimally, I think not since I have heard that prediction is like mouse accel and is not beneficial. I prefer the mouse that would allow me to aim best. I will repeat, AIM is the focus of my mouse, the g500 is what I'm currently using and the mouse accel is annoying, and I'm starting to believe, a hindrance to my abilities in-game.
7. Other info
I'm looking at the g400 right now, aswell as the g100s. I'm a little reluctant to consider the g400s since it's relatively new, and thusly comes with many issues. The g100s seems to be what I am leaning towards at the moment, due to my inability to find a g400 online. My decision right now has come to my lack of knowledge on which has the better sensor, which is ultimately what my decision will rely most heavily on. Summary: I want a mouse that has near-flawless tracking, or Flawless. Thanks! Hopefully you guys can help me! smile.gif
P.S. Feel free to suggest other mice than what I am looking at, but please follow the criteria I have set, I don't want to be misled.

Can't really go wrong with the G400 if you like that shape. Solid sensor which is very good for low sens. The G100s can't keep up with the G400 in terms of max perfect control speed (G400 has >4 m/s, G100s has around 2.8 m/s max). Otherwise G100s seems better suited for a fingertip like grip.

Regarding the g400s,I've been using one for the past 3 months and it hasn't had any problems yet. The g400s is really no different from the g400 other than a different sensor firmware and shell design. Apart from that internals are the same if not better and in the event of any problems logitech's warranty will have you covered for 3 years. That being said, I don't think the g400s will be in the $40 price range, if I'm not wrong it's around 59 USD.
