Palm Grip Mouse for MMOs - Page 3

post #21 of 32
Thread Starter 
Yeah Razer has been known for their crappy build quality. Some of their products are pretty good, like I said, I've had no problems with the DA 2013, but I've had two Nagas break on me in the past, and their construction was less than admirable. That being said, ths M95 looks like a pretty solid mouse. Who knows? Maybe it will fit my hand better than you think. If it doesn't, I'll just dump 5$ at Canada post and return it =P.

I'm still on my original Naga from when they were 1st released. Never had a problem, updated firmware couple of times. Still runs perfect, I must be a lucky one

It happens, I know that some people have terrible luck with Logitech, me personally, not one single product from them has ever died on me, hell I still have the G5 from when it first came out and it still works flawlessly.

I think it might be the way some.people use them, just not careful enough. My brother complained his mouse didn't work so I bought him a new one, only to watch him pressing the left click so hard I though he was try to break it on purpose lol

I personally like my Microsoft Sidewinder. Big enough for my hands, even though they arent the biggest. But I play palm rest style as well. But, I dont like all the thumb buttons of other mice, they get in the way for me. The Sidewinder only has 2.

the m95 gets my pick since its heavier than some other mice. The only downside is the occasional shock from static when your pinkie touches the metal plate. The firmware I think needs to be updated when you first get it I think, though it might already be on the latest since I brought an earlier batch. MMOs I play are mostly gw2 and gw. The main benefit is that there isn't much of a learning curve to figure where the thumb buttons are.

I returned my M95 last week. In looks and quality it seems great. In practice the buttons simply did not work out well and it was to easy to accidentally push the wrong one or not distinguish the difference. The tracking seemed pretty buggy, I m not sure if the mouse had acceleration, but I had issues with it zipping all over the place. Lastly was the coating, it held oil like crazy and was ridiculous to keep clean. I was scrubbing my hands and it with alcohol constantly; to no avail I would see smudges on it. Best Buy may carry an M95 at your store, if not I d purchase from Amazon for an easy return.

I would recommend the G700, G600, and RAT MMO 7 (if it is still using the same twin eye sensor). I currently own all three of these mice. Now hear me out:

The G700 is all around a good mouse and if you like the MX Revolution feel then you will enjoy this. It is wireless if you want it and it has ample buttons in different positions. The scroll wheel is pretty nice as well.

G600 - DO NOT BUY THE OLD ONES - The sensor or firmware was different and could not be updated. Logitech will replace these mice as they know it is defected. My current G600 which is (two weeks old) performing perfectly. It has 12 side buttons, a shift button which opens you up to 12 more side buttons. The feeling of the mouse is very comfortable and fits my hand so casually. The third rest for my ring finger is very nice and welcomed. The side buttons have ridges and definition with a firm press which helps assist in determining your keys.

P.S. Best Buy price matched my G600 for $45 from Newegg and will probably do it for the refurbished prices of $35 on Newegg.

RAT 7 MMO - If the RAT is still using the same sensor then I have no issue with this mouse. It has well placed buttons, the adjustability is hands down the best I ve had. The sensor is good, but it can be sensitive to dust, dirt, hair on your mouse pad. I personally enjoy the placement of the buttons on this mouse and it helps establish good muscle memory. Last feature I enjoy is the overall weight and build quality of this mouse.

One side note is to strongly consider the mouse pad you use. I currently use an aluminum mouse pad with two surface textures from Best Buy for $17.

.

The sensor in the MMO is terrible. I had to replace the mouse TWICE in 6 months due to problems with it. Even keeping a plastic film on the bottom doesn't help, the sensor itself is flawed and thats common knowledge.

On a side note, got my G602 last night, love this mouse! Optical sensor FTW!

I'm using a G602 right now, I like the mouse a lot, but I'm just not in love with it's macro functionality.

Can't blame you, for some reason they are using the old setpoint features instead of the newer features.
