Help me find the perfect mouse for me!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
First of all, the copy-paste thing :


1. What's your grip style?


My grip style is the fingertip one


2. What's your sensitivity?


800/1000/1200 dpi, depends on the game i'm playing.


3. What's your maximum budget?


60 bucks


4. Do you want additional buttons?


At least 2 on the left side


5. What games do you play?


Counter Strike Global Offensive, Quake 3 and Battlefield 3/4


6. Do you mind about prediction?


I really don't know.


7. Other relevant information?


I'm using a ****ty R.A.T. 5 that is giving me too many problems (i can't even play). I need a new mouse that should have similar shape to my current mouse because i'm used to it. But the most important thing for me is the sensor, it must have a good sensor with no acceleration. I'm using a Steelseries Qck+.
I'm looking at the Steelseries Rival, but the size and the weight is scaring me a little... Is it still a good choice?



Thank you guys for any help you can provide, you guys rock!

Mionix Avior 7000
Zowie FK
Zowie AM
Zowie EC2 EVO

All of those listed are fantastic for fingertip/claw/hybrid grip folks. The Avior has the 3310 sensor, which is the best optical sensor on the market. The Zowie sensors aren't far behind, but they do have some funky dpi steps.

The only one i could find on italian retailers (i'm from italy) is the Zowie AM at 83 euros (which is too expensive). They seems really good btw.

What's wrong with the Rival?

you said it yourself the size and weight scare you a little, all the mice DivineDark just mentioned are better than if not = to the Rival in every way.
I would just say plain better since I own 3 of the 4 mice Dark mentioned and have only heard horror stories about the Rivals build quality.

I would say try the Zowie FK, ec2 evo CL, Avior 7000 (even though i personally dislike the shape the sensor and build quality are amazing) and G100s (cheap and reliable FPS mouse)

Logitech g300. Cheap effective mouse. If you want to spend more i'm sure you can find better.

As i mention before, the problem is that i can't find any of the mice you suggested in my country's online stores, so i need to find something else...

What is the problem with the RAT5? Beside the Z-Axis jump after putting down, the sensor is very good imo.

For a new mouse you may have a look at the Corsair M45.

At 800 dpi, the mouse is very inaccurate and it' buggy... I really don't know how to explain how weird it is but i can't even do simple things... Anyway the m45 is really cool but the size is scaring me a little bit, because as i saw is even smaller than the rival...

The only good SteelSeries mice right now are the Rival and the Kana V2, and the latter is not available in the USA domestically.
