Which mouse choose?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I'm looking for a new mouse for gaming (LoL, DOTA, bf4, thief, TESO, titan fall).l I'd like a wired, right handed, palm grip mouse that haves at least 4 programables butons. I have around 20-60 dollars to spend. Which would you recommand me?

Thanks answering and have a great day.

The only thing about the Naos is that it can be tough to lift. That may not be an issue for you though if you don't use a very low sensitivity like me. I own the Avior, best optical sensor on the market right now except for the Logitech g502. That is a little out of your price range though, the Naos might be as well, I just considered...anyway they are both well worth the cash though.

Ok thanks. biggrin.gif

I've been playing on a very ****ty mouse for now so I don't how much weigh I'd like etc. I'd like to have a mouse where you can change its weight.

Also, I don't see where there's 4 programmables butons. There's only the two's on the side. When I said 4 butons, I meant 4 but that I could use in game not counting the right and left click and the one that change the dpi.

Next week I'll go to an electronic store chose a mouse so does anyone haves any recommendation?

the mionix 7000 naos and the logitech g502 are the same price, at least for me...
http://www.amazon.com/Mionix-NAOS-Optical-Sensor-Mouse/dp/B00HGKQ6VY
http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Proteus-Tunable-Customizable-910-004074/dp/B00IRHE892

a cheaper mouse with a bunch of buttons and a good sensor is the g602, but its wireless
http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Wireless-Gaming-Mouse-Battery/dp/B00E4MQODC

maybe the corsair m45? i don't know if the buttons beneath the scroll wheel are reprogrammable but if they are, good sensor and even adjustable weight so you can try some different weights.
http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Raptor-M45-5000-Optical-M45/dp/B00IDWFN4U



some tips when you're looking at the mice at the store. I don't know which mice will and won't be available there but some general suggestions:

Don't be impressed by high dpi, its a meaningless number. Even if it says 12,000 dpi, the sensor only really takes a picture at about 900 dpi and then software cuts pixels in half and you never get increased accuracy with higher dpi.

Avoid dual sensors mice.

If a mouse says it has zero acceleration, thats ideal.

IMO, Zowie, Roccat, Mionix, and Logitech are the most reputable companies. Lets call them group A. Then group B isn't quite as reputable, but are known for making mice and are still fairly quite reputable and consists of Razer, Steelseries, CM storm aka Cooler Master, and Corsair. (yes, this is probably a bias, but its not without reasons) Then most other mice companies aren't very well known for their mice and are a bit of a gamble, some of them might be good, but its risky. So if you're looking at two different mice, and one is group A and the other is group B, and you're looking for a decider, simply pick the one from group A. Or if one is group B and another isn't in either group, then pick the one from group B imo.

oh, zowie mice don't have programmable buttons, so you shouldn't get one if thats important.

Thanks a lot. But what about MadCatz?
post #9 of 30
MadCatz has one of the worst reputations for build quality, if not the worst reputation for build quality. Their mice tend to break very soon after purchase.
post #10 of 30
I really like the new Steelseries Rival.. it fits nicely in the hand and has a nice heft to it without being heavy. The software it comes with is pretty decent too, allowing you to program all 4 buttons, and has a dpi switching button as well... all told it cost be 55 bucks at best buy
