Looking for a new mouse and mousemat

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

I am currently running a Logitech B110 mouse and a book for a mousemat....

Looking to get a good gaming mouse for playing FPS games and league of legends
Mostly FPS games such as battlefield 4/cs:go

Been looking at the razer deathadder and corsair's standard cloth mousemat's
Budget is £70 for both, really dont need an expensive mousemat or huge one
Make sure its wired
I'm right handed, palm grip

Need some feedback on these products and any other suggestions

Much appreciated
Luke

Palm grip suggestions:

*Deathadder
*Zowie Ec1 or 2 depends on handsize
*Logitech g400 or g400s
*Steelseries Rival (more palmgrip)
*Steelseries Kana v2 (more hybrid then palm but seeing you come from a hybrid mouse I think you like this shape more)
*cm storm recon (some countries they are quite cheap mouse is good shape is okay only the weight lies more in the back then centered)

Mousepad suggestions:

*Steelseries Qck (pick just a normal black one multiple colours will not all sensors in mice like)
if you have a uneven surface buy a thicker surface of qck so it evens out.
*Roccat taito aswell a decent surface quite affordable in most countries.

make sure to buy from somewhere you can send youre mice back to if you dont like them.
My bet is you are a palm grip but like more medium sized mice seeing the mouse u use now.
Offcourse I can be wrong but if so have a look at the roccat kone pure optical if its in youre budget offcourse.
Aswell the zowie FK could be more or less more the shape u are using now.

Mostly agree with this, but I'd go for the Goliathus Control of whatever size you're looking for. If you want something huge, the PureTrack Talent is hard to beat. The QcK is unnecessarily rough for being a cloth pad. I can also personally recommend the Corsair MM400, which works great with all my optical and laser mice alike if you want a super slick hard mat.

I would stay away from the DA 2013 and try one of the other opticals though. Many people report annoying issues with the software and also the S3988 seems to be more heavily processed and more lagged than the PWM3310 in other new-gen optical mice like the Rival.

If you can wait at all, I would wait a month or two to let all the new CES mice come out. A lot of them are really picking up the 3310 sensor without regard to having CPI wars, which is great.

I think the FK would be the easiest to get used to from what you're coming from. We really need some more ambi 3310 mice besides the Avior 7000 in this industry if you ask me...

i would recommend the zowie ec2 evo cl if you're ok with playing at 2300dpi. Lower lag than other modern fps mice. Excellent tracking. No cluttered software. Only downside is it excels at a single dpi setting.

In my honest opinion, going with anything from Logitech or SteelSeries is a good decision. With that said, I'd recommend:

G400
G400S
G500
G500S
SteelSeries Rival
SteelSeries Sensei

And for mousepads:

SteelSeries QcK
SteelSeries QcK+ (If you have a big enough desk for it)

Although he may not notice it, it's worth pointing out that the G500, G500s, and Sensei all have minor positive hardware acceleration whereas the G400, G400s, and Rival are all 1:1 mice.

Can't you turn that off though with Logitech's Gaming software? Or is it hardwired with the sensor?

Hardware platform artifact. Not adjustable via software. I know it's definitely there because those mice I listed have either the ADNS-9500 or ADNS-9800 sensor, both of which use the same sensor architecture. I also have first-hand experience with the acceleration issues since my primary mouse is a Sensei, and I'm seriously considering moving to the Rival because of the acceleration. My G400 feels much more accurate to my physical movements.

Wow, you'd think Logitech and steelseries would put the G400/Rival sensor in the more expensive mice rather than vice-versa. I only got my G400 because I didn't have enough for the G500 at the time, after hearing this I'm glad I didn't have that extra dosh thumb.gif
