Best FPS Gaming Mouse? - Page 4

post #31 of 73
Don't forget Microsoft's Sidewinders. I have the original one and it's really comfortable for palm grip (which was what I look for in mice)!

The feedback on the 2 side buttons isn't great, so you can't use them as main buttons but that means they're great if you're scared of pushing them by mistake (this happened to me with one of the razers).

You will get a lot of recommendations and opinions on this forum. My first gaming gade mouse was a G5. Solid mouse. Currently using a G500 - which is even better. It's larger and contours my hand better.

Try them out, whether it's at best-buy (they have g500s and lachesis iirc) or at a friends house. Whatever you are more comfortable with is what you should pick.

I can't emphasize this enough. Most people will be hard pressed to out-aim (cause it to malfunction or track incorrectly) any mouse.

I have a friend from college that has won several thousand dollars playing CS1.6 over the years - he used a $5 bargain-bin mouse for years until he won a free Deathadder.

On a similar note, I played UT with a Microsoft Laser 6000 for 2 years. The Laser 6000 is one of the worst mice ever when it comes to tracking - in fact it's the absolute worst mouse tested by ESreality. Only until I started playing with an incredibly low sensitivity could I out-aim the hardware of the mouse. I play at 16-20" (40-50cm) per 360deg rotation, and if I played slow games (CS, Cod4) it would be on the order of 40"/360 (100cm).

Pick a mouse for comfort, 'cause the hardware inside is almost certainly better than you.

I love my deathadder.
But this seems like a good deal http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Logitech...ract_desc=null

While it is good try out a G500. It's that, but better.

this. My friend got me a G500 for my b-day. Best mouse i've used so far.

the on the fly sensitivity adjustment has come in handy in BC2. High sensitivity for turrets, med for assault, low for recon.

For the most part I'd agree w/ everything you said. One issue I have w/ my G7 (<3) is 2.4Ghz is a way overpopulated frequency.

A neighbor w/a cheap spread spectrum portable phone is occaisionally causing serious interferance w/ my mouse. And my reciever is just at the end of my mouse pad.

Polling rate will determine the accuracy of the mouse's reaction times and alot of non-gaming wireless mice have a 5millisecond polling rate (latency). The high end wireless will have 1 millisecond ultra polling...the same sample rate as wired gaming mice.

If you looking for a wireless mouse, you cant go wrong with the Razer Mamba. I know is $$$ but its the best mouse i have ever used IMO.

Before I start, I'd just like to say I'm not trying to start a flame war. I don't mean to sound rude in any way.

I'm not sure I agree with this. I've tried to play CS 1.6 and L4D2 with a generic (I know I know, nothing's generic anymore) Dell mouse and, whenever I move the mouse too fast, my crosshair immediately points straight up in the air. To drive my point, try moving your mouse quickly on your desktop. The cursor will jump all over the place.

I'm making this point because I think it's important to be able to move your mouse quickly over a large mousepad area. I play with low sensitivity (makes it easier to awp), and if someone is directly behind me, I'll need to be able to turn around fast. I can't do that with a generic mouse.
