Zowie Mico Alternative

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Fingertip grip.

Requirements:
  • 5 buttons
  • Vertical sides
  • Small size similar to Zowie Mico

Razer Orochi has an awful shape and negative acceleration due to dynamic dpi scaling. Roccat Pyra has the awful shape that flairs outwards at the back. G9x has an awful middle click and heavy negative acceleration. I often swipe fast on cloth.


Does such a mouse exist? I've spent so much time looking and can't find anything. I'll consider mice laser mice

Corsair M45 looks possible but I think it is too heavy and too long. 120mm is too long and I would prefer around 100 x 60 x 35mm (LxWxH).

Don't consider laser mice at all. The only things I can think of right now that's small and has a good sensor and 5 buttons would be either the Zowie FK or the Roccat Savu.

Zowie FK has inward sloping sides and is too long. Roccat Savu is too long and too high.

The AM doesn't have sloping sides but yeah it is probably too long. I know of no mobile sized mouse with a good sensor, that's a severely lacking part of the gaming mice market.

Thats a good thing as long as its not as "slope" as logitech m90/m100 (just an example. i don't recomment them even for browsing internet)

The only mouse i can think of which doesn't have slobe sides is well.. the zowie mico. But if inward slope sides are no problem, maybe try the g9 (without x) I prefer its sensor over the g9x (theres high lift of, but works really good on any DPI setting -3200) Try it without the shells. Maybe u could get one from ebay.

G9 has even worse problems with cloth than the G9x. The middle click is also one of the worst I have ever used.

Logitech B100/M100 might be too long at 110mm and 38mm tall. They probably also have prediction. Logitech LS-1 looks nice but it is laser and 1100dpi and I prefer 800dpi.

the commatech m1 is the closest thing to the mico's shape i can think of but 3 buttons not 5. not sure where you are located but im not sure where to obtain one outside of the states.
http://www.overclock.net/t/1280143/commatech-m1

the only thing else i can really think of that you might like is the steelseries kana or kana v2

you can also check out this thread on tl.net for more suggestions
http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/tech-support/320092-small-mouse-like-kinzu-or-mico-with-5-buttons

another good suggestion from the the tl thread is the cm storm spawn or xornet.

Commatech FKMini V3 appears to have a 1000dpi step which is probably 1800/2. It uses the A3090. However, it only has 3 buttons.

Kana V2 has even worse inward sloping sides than the FK and the back of the mouse is too wide.
