Need suggestion on what mice to buy (Gaming purpose) !

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My Logitech MX 518 is finally dying on me after 7 years. It was such amazing mouse and sad to let go of it mad.gif

Anyway im looking to buying a new mouse with gaming as main use. (BTW Im right handed )
what matters to me is:
- Durability , As I work with PC almost the entire day (apart from gaming) and this thing needs to be tough !
-Comfortable, AS i would like to rest my palm on the back of the mouse and mx 518 was perfect for my hand. so something with of same size where i can rest my palm like that.
-Weight, Not too heavy. MX 518 was around 106 grams and quite right for me , so something around that.
- Main usage as said is gaming , As i play both FPS and MMO etc, so something for general gaming of all kind. although i don't want it to be riddled with like10 buttons. 2-4 buttons is fine for me !

Budget is no problem up to 150$ but if im spending this much, i want it to be worth it rolleyes.gif

scroll is no longer working, the sensor goes on and off randomly and stops moving. (connected to different USB ports, still the same problem).

if you wanted to you could probably fix it. just needs a new cable, scroll wheel i'm not sure you would have to open it up and see why it's not scrolling. i know they sell the whole scroll wheel replacements. it would be really cheap to fix, just thought id mention it.

meh not sure if its worth the hassle (not sure if the sensor problem is actually from the cable).

anyway drop me your suggestion guys. I do think its time for a new mouse after 7 years anyways.

logitech g303 if you think the shape won't be a problem

If you really like the MX518 shape, then you should take a look at the G400s and the G402.
The G400s was discontinued, but there's a few of them on ebay, and some of them are new/unused. But IMO they're kinda overpriced there...

If you want more options, there's the Rival (~104g), the Zowie EC1-A and EC2-A, and maybe the Finalmouse 2016 as well (but they weight ~74g)
