[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 1552

post #15511 of 36807
I like the G300 because it doesn't have a trillion buttons I can't press. It has just the right amount of buttons I can press and exactly where it's comfortable for me to press them (right near the left and right mouse click buttons instead of on the side of the mouse where it feels weird to press buttons with my thumb). On top of that I have very small hands ('ll measure when I get home) so it's the perfect mouse for claw gripping small handed people. I may look to another mouse in the future.., but I like the G300 very much. Just wish it had more colors. The Rokkat Kone XTD+ looks very nice, but I wonder if I'll like it. Will possibly upgrade to this in the future..we'll see.

That looks like it would play murder on my hand @_@

Ive found that a lot of mice are extremely uncomfortable for me to use especially high flat topped and ultra wide mice.
comfort is a huge deal with it comes to mice. like I tried the G700 and after about 20minutes I was dying, it hurt too much to use it and I couldn't pick it up off the mousepad because it was so wide.
same with the ultrawide grip for the naga epic/2012 if its too wide it hurts, but the naga epic with the so called "claw grip" one of the most comfortable mice ive ever used. because it allows my hand to death grip the mouse without over exerting pressure down on the sides. it also has a rounded top and a big...erm ass(Back end?)? lol which makes it able to comform to my hands grip.

I think the most important thing to find in a mouse is the comfort. especially if you're going to be holding onto it for 10~15hours a day everyday.
Like I used a Logitech m325 while I was waiting to get my naga epic and after an hour It felt like my hand was bleeding.

Thanks everyone. I didn't expect it to come out so well so I'm really happy about it.

So I got one of these from work

But it has a terminal connection. Is there any way besides a teensy 2.0 to get it to either a ps/2 or USB interface?

Hey HesterDW. That looks really, really awesome! I was on mobile when I first saw it and didn't reply.

I have a question though. Those stealth caps you have on there, are they from the QuickFire Stealth, or did you purchase them elsewhere? And they all lined up correctly? Also, how did you find a replacement spacebar? I heard it does not exist for the TKs? If you used the original, how did you cover the light stripe on the TK's spacebar? Or do other CM spacebars just... fit?

Sorry for the many questions. That's only because I think it looks REALLY awesome. thumb.gif

Even more minimalist than that: M510. No wires, great battery life, slightly jumpy (especially when sniping) compared to a wired mouse, and two whole side buttons. I'm not a huge fan of the small buttons offset from the main mouse buttons personally and my thumb slides into the middle of the side buttons. There are some games where I can barely find two functions to put on it. Left pinky on LShift and LCtrl, ring finger on A and Q, middle on W and S, index finger on D, E, R, F (most used but never simultaneously), C, V, and G, and thumb on LAlt and Space. Covers most of what I need to do with a few exceptions. That's where the mouse wheel and side buttons come in.

Nope. There was one company I saw making an XT to PS/2 converter, but I've never seen any RJ45 to PS/2 converters.
