Mouse help required, already have Logitech G500s and Deathadder 2013? - Page 2

post #11 of 39
Thread Starter 
Thanks for the reply, I ordered a CM Storm Recon to try, it has a 4000dpi optical sensor that has 4 dpi switches, one of which is 1600dpi which is what I am currently using on the G400s. The only concern I have is that this is a ambidextrous mouse so has buttons on the right hand side of the mouse, these can be disabled but it could become annoying if I am clicking them by accident all the time. Will report back if it's any good tomorrow, if not then looks like the Kone.

Kone would be too small, I also had trouble gripping the G400 comfortably, but KPO was worse because also slippery.
The best mouse for you would probably be either the Mionix NAOS 7000 or the Zowie EC1 eVo (which comes in three types, rubber (black) which is good for sweaty hands, glossy (white) which is good for dry hands and the new CL which has kind of an all rounder coating.

But as poster above said: wait till after CES
Fast enough

Hi guys,

I got the Recon and I think that I got a dud so it's going back and I won't be getting another one. None of the LEDs would change unless I took the usb cable out and rep lugged afterwards. Also there was noticeable jitter or periods where the mouse wasn't tracking at all. Most likely a dud but can't say it blew me away either

An online gaming friend of mine swears by a Sensei Raw, however this is a laser mouse, he says he cannot detect any acceleration at all and these can currently be had in the UK for £39.99 rather than £59.99 so quite tempted biggrin.gif

II would wait until after CES but I need a mouse now not in a couple of months.

I would still say give the Rival a shot. A lot of people say it's more comfortable than the DA and it tracks every bit as well. Super high max speeds, pure 1:1 tracking.

I was very tempted, however from reviews and videos I have seen it looks very big, I had the roccat kone xtd and returned it due to the size of it. I have a large palm but relatively short fingers.

Oh, okay so you want something smaller and not enormous. Mionix Naos 7000 would be too large then probably as well. If you don't mind ambi mice and don't mind the 3.5 m/s max tracking speed of it (would be about the same on the G400/G400s but at 800 CPI on them), the Zowie FK will do. If you want ergonomic, the EC1 EVO might be a good bet. Shape is similar to the DA. Both are 3090 mice with a magnifying lens on them so their 1800 CPI native step becomes 2300 CPI. That's really the only usable step from what I've read on here, as the other two lower steps are interpolated and have input lag.

The thing is I don't find the deathadder that comfortable as I use a claw grip really, it feels a bit long, one of the comfiest mice I have ever used is the Corsiar M60 as it is wide so I don't have to squeeze my hand in which makes it hurt. Which is why I don't really get on with the G400s, I also tried the M40 which is the same shape and optical but it has stepped dpi and lowest is 1600dpi I think which as I find out when using the Recon is 200dpi lower than my default which is 1800dpi.

Take a look at the Zowie mice then. Should be shorter and 2300 CPI, then you can use this website to calculate your sensitivity. http://www.mouse-sensitivity.com you don't always have to have exactly the same CPI if you recalculate an equivalent sensitivity.
