Mouse help required, already have Logitech G500s and Deathadder 2013?

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I started out buying the Deathadder 2013 and I love the sensor and how accurate it is, I don't have to think about what I am doing with it at all it is like a 1-1 connection with my brain. However the problem I have is that it is really wide enough foe my hand so it makes my hand hurt a little when playing and the next day I can feel it. So with that in mind I bought the Logitech G500s, which is a much better fit for my hand and doesn't make my hand hurt when playing, however I really don't like the accuracy of the mouse, whether it is some sort of prediction or what have you I don't know but I just can' get along with the mouse.

So I thought about buying the G400s as that is Optical as I tend to game at 1800dpi and I believe the mouse does around 4000DPI whichi is more than enough for me, however I don't like the fact that the cable is braided as this seems like a bit of an oversight to me by Logitech.

Any other brand that I should try out, I really want optical but it has to be a bit wider than the Deathadder, or a sculpted fit like the G500s?

Hope you can help

You mean to say that you do not like that the cable is not braided correct?

I would not worry about it. Cables and their sleeves typically do not break from normal use unless the peripheral is moved a lot and does not have a stress relief or has some other design flaw (the G400 actually had this problem, the G400s fixed that). Other than that, you mostly want cables to not be stiff and get in the way, and feel as little resistance from them as possible. In that sense, I much prefer some of the softer cable sleeves that bend more easily and actually prefer them to braided cables (that tend to be more stiff, and have more friction when moved around). While braided cable sleeves look nice, when it comes to functionality I would say that the ones I have used all feel inferior to normal soft plastic cable sleeves. For many people, not having a braided cable is a plus. Some brands even have cables that are made to be even more flexible than generic ones (Zowie for example).

Besides. One of the most important things when deciding which mouse to use is how it feels in hand. If you found a shape mouse you really like, I think you should stick with it, even if there are some minor things you might not like about the mouse. My experience is that few things are worth the trade-off when you find something that agrees with your grip, playstyle, preferences and particular anatomy. Besides, the G400 has a really good optical sensor which is a big plus. I would not ignore it just because it does not have braided cable sleeves.

I've got the Deathadder 2013, G400, G500, and Zowie EC1 EVO. Personally, I found the Deathadder too small, and love both the G400 and Zowie EC1. I prefer the EC1 EVO though because it weighs less.

SteelSeries Rival has no braided cable and similar performance to DA 2013 from what I've seen. It's worth a look, my friend who plays competitive CS loves his.

I made the same switch about a year ago and what I noticed is that it takes a while to get accustomed to the different grip pattern of the G500. It's all a matter of time.

I never could handle those ergo shapes of Logitech mice. The grip just doesn't give enough room for my pinky and ring under the right side of the mouse, and I lift way too often for my pinky not to go numb over time since my ring finger has to rest next to RMB...that's just me though. If you like that shape, the G400s is a great mouse. I wouldn't worry about the braided cable, but you'll get better mouse performance from the Rival, which also doesn't have a braided cable. It's one of the few gaming mice on the market and the only one I can think of in production right now without a braided cable.

Thanks to everyone for the replies, I ended up going for a G400s which has an amazing sensor for sure, however unfortunately it hurts my hand unlike the G500s. It is smaller and doesn't fit my hand as well as the G500s, it gives me pain down the middle of my palm as I have to squeeze my palm in to get a decent grip.

I don't know if you're looking for anything else after the G400s, but if you are, maybe you could consider the Roccat Kone Pure Optical? I don't actually own one myself, but it is a mouse I'm considering buying. It is smaller than the Deathadder, yet it has some curves to not be as uncomfortable as the G400s.

I have the Deathadder 2013, which I also find to be a little too big (but not uncomfortable), and I've had the Logitech G7, which has the same shape as the G400s, so I know the complaints you have of both mice (though my issue with the G400 shape isn't related to the palm, but just overall discomfort). Since I'm considering the Roccat Kone Pure Optical, maybe it might be of interest to you as well. Best of luck in whatever you choose to buy!
