Quality of Mice

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So, after a recent look on Amazon, I wandered into the "no name mice" section, and came across this mouse. M555. What makes the "legendary" optical mice (Zowies, Deathadders, g400s, etc.) significantly better than one of these no name mice, other than the included sensor?

*For those not wanting to go to amazon, the sensor is an Avago 5050, which I know isn't a "gaming" sensor.

I'm assuming that two large parts of it are build quality(including driver development) and brand recognition, though I think warranty support maybe another factor. BTW, when you say "rip-off" mice, do you mean a no-name brand mouse?

Yeah I guess that's a better way of saying it. I'll change it in OP.

I found a video of that mouse, in which they said the drivers just worked.
I figured it were build quality, but that mouse appears to have the makings of all of the popular mice (the plastic appears to be similar in the pictures, it also has rubberized sides)

You could always give it a shot. It may either be a hidden gem or a dud.

That's what I was thinking.

I just wish some of these off brand mice were seen more often here on OCN, even if it were just for a few reviews to get a good feel if it's decent or not.

edit: It looks like they're based out of Iowa, according to their facebook.

Problem is that mice like the Xornet and G100S are not that much more expensive and have gaming sensors from "named" brands.

Mice are not expensive to make, you definitely could find some hidden gems there. With the more recognized brands still waging the stupid dpi war, I think I'm going to start looking more into those.

Especially if you want a mouse that is a little bit higher quality than a regular mouse, and also has two side buttons, these mice and some of the cheaper offerings from the other "name brands" seem more and more appealing to me too.

I can really see the Xornet being competitive because it also has the extra buttons for relatively the same price, ($10 more, but newegg has it with a $10 mir), whereas the G100s doesn't have the side buttons yet is $20 more.

i got my xornet for $20 and my G100S for $20 they are both really great entry level gaming mice if you can nab them on sale.
i wouldnt pay $40 for the G100S that it retails for..although its currently my favorite offering in my collection.

i always keep an eye out of these no name brands too but nothing has really caught my eye yet.
