A 'little' comparison

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello guys. I would like to ask you people what is the better mouse if the choice was between Genius Maurus GX (without the red stripes all around) A3090 sensor in it, or Steelseries rival 100? Thank you in advance. This is my first post on this site. smile.gif

Both mice are rather bad.
Sensorwise the A 3090 is a better choice than the rival 100; as the rival sensor starts to jitter in 500 dpi and more.

Why dont you ho for a more sensible mouse in general?
What's your grip type?
How big are your hands?
preferred dpi + sens?

Well, I sure as hell wouldn't get the Maurus X(red stripes one that you referred to) because it has 1 m/s max speed.

Genius GX is made by Kye Systems Corp.

One design trend they llllloooovvvvveeee to do is throw cheap tactile button switches everywhere they can to reduce cost. So don't expect any mouse made by them to last very long(also just because they used 5m omron switches for the mains doesn't mean they didn't reduce cost somewhere else.)

Rival 100 has a good sensor. It is very good at 500 dpi and 500hz. The higher the cpi - the more jitter it will have. Personally I played on 1000 just as good as on a g303 or a Rival 300.

Maurus actually has a good sensor implementation with an actual good firmware, no noticable input lag and decent click latency. It's a great budget mouse but it's unknown as hell and people have prejudices because it was made by Genius. If you like the shape you should go for it.

Im looking for a good budget mouse. In my country even the rival 100 is pretty pricey standing at around 60$. xD
Maurus is like 35 and around that price i can mostly get Jetion and Hama mice.
I do a mix of claw and fingertip grip so smaller mice do a pretty good work for me. smile.gif
I play cs go at 900 dpi and 1.1 sens ingame and 6/11 windows.
The g100s as i saw has some problems where it stutters when you try to for example flick in cs go.

Thanks for the replies guys. smile.gif

This. I have actually used the first model, the all black Maurus. It's one of those hidden gem mice that I have come across. It's not to be considered among the finest of mice but it really is a good, no frills model. It comes with extra skates, and there's an easy to remove weight on the inside that I definitely suggest removing. Just make sure the shape works for you. BTW, Maurus-X has red stripes, is bigger, and is a worser mouse.
