Deathadder BE to Torq x5? Good "Upgrade"?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of retiring my 3 year old DeathAdder Black Edition. It's really beat up/scratched at this point, has licking issues, the wire is showing actual wires and just doesn't look very "clean"

Would the EVGA Torq x5 be a solid choice? I love EVGA as a company and really love the design of the mouse as well. It's optical, so that should be fine for my FPS gaming needs. Size is one thing I am worried about, and more detailed tests of the exact optical sensor is another. I know the old Deathadders are very hard to beat in terms of accuracy, thus why I've been holding off for so long.

The X5 has one of the two best sensors on the market. Shape is subjective.

When it comes to sensors, the X5 has a very great one! Have you given the g502/402 any consideration? They also have incredible sensors in them.

X5 is a great mouse, I had one but returned it because the shape was a bit too narrow and "low" in the front for my big hands (for whatever reason I didn't have this issue w/ the G100s). But sensor-wise it's awesome, so no worries in that regard.

Thanks for the help guys, just order one from amazon for $31 smile.gif If the size is bad I'll just return it, I used a smaller mouse previously and while I did force myself to get used to it.. Going back to the Deathadder later was heaven.

Hopefully it's not as small as the Roccat Lua was.

I have not, mainly because I love the the X5 looks, love EVGA as a company and was looking for a good (Optical) sensor (For a good price). I'll go do a bit of research on them just incase I end up not liking the X5 for its shape/size.

Edit: 502 is definitely out of my budget, 402 is on the limit. I think Evga would be the better deal based on price alone unless these mice have some amazing features.

The 402 and the 302 have some of the best sensors on the market out of any mouse. Both being optical.

Just grab a new DA?? 2k13 or Chroma.

Torq is very good bang for the buck. Don't know how you feel about the symmetrical shapes coming from a DA but but would be a low cost good first try.

I didn't like the glossy white shell of the Torq X5.
