Best FPS Gaming Mouse? - Page 6

As long as you get a recent laser mouse, I would say pick the mouse that feels the best in your hand and has buttons where you want them over anything else. I owned a G5 for years and currently own a G500. I can shake this thing back and forth as fast as I can on a budget pad and don't notice any loss of precision. The laser sensors are good enough now that I wouldn't worry about that being a deciding factor.

The button placement is where it's at for me. Back and forward buttons on the side, which are useful for both web browsing and gaming, plus a center button to assign to whatever else. And the toggle switch to make the wheel spin freely is kind of neat too, though I don't really find myself using it much.

One thing I don't like about it that I also didn't care for in the G5 is the left and right toggle on the wheel. It can make pressing the center button a bit awkward, but I will admit it is better than it was on the G5.

While laser sensors are superior at tracking on multiple surfaces and at higher DPI, it surely doesn't mean the sensor is "better" Both laser and optical have their share of problems.


In the end, it's all personal preference. I cannot emphasize this enough

While I don't dispute any of those facts, over 90% of how well someone does in a shooter these days is using their wits and how fast their reflexes are. The slight differences in the latest gaming mice won't make a bit of difference in most users' hands.

The most comfortable mouse with buttons where each person wants them should honestly be the deciding factor when considering any of the later gen mice. At least that's my opinion. And I use to be pretty competitive in FPS ladders (OGL, TWL, etc.) years back.

deathadder infrared 1800dpi mouse.
dpi doesnt matter just get more than 800dpi.
if you get 6200dpi than if you move the mouse 1 nanometer and the cursor will fly off the screen.
pros prefer 1800dpi or 1600dpi anyway.
razer deathadder has same dpi as boomslang and looks better IMO.
if you want to spend a hundred bucks get an orochi, lachesis, or mamba.
if you want something bigger get a sidewinder x8. it has bluetrak and its a really good cordless mouse by microsoft.

Razer Boomslang
Razer Mouse [amazon] not available on newegg

Microsoft Mouse
Microsoft Mouse [newegg]
My friend got a Microsoft mouse, don't really remember the name, but it could be the one you're talking about. It has 3 buttons at the top to change the DPI, which is really helpful. He has one set to infantry, tank, and plane - so when he is playing online, his options can be set in one click. He really does pwn more now

I got mine in exchange when my G5 died i paid 30 bucks on the last batch of g5's at frys. then it died like 2 months in. and I called Logitech and they replaced with a G500.
