Looking for a new mouse

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hi I am looking for a new mouse my budget is up to $100. I use palm grip on my mouse. I was thinking bout a g700 but I don't know if I should go for it or not. So I want to see what everyone else thinks.

Razer Deathadder

Logitech MX-518

those are the top 2 mouses I've seen being used by some quite amazing players

So the deathadder looks like a good choice to me. I will wait to see what other people say. If I went with the deathadder what would be a good mousepad to use?

I have been using my MX518 since it was released years ago. Rock solid and great for FPS. I want to buy a wireless one but nothing I find matches this one.

I'm extremely pleased with logitech g500. Very comfortable, sensor is very accurate and sensitive, and frictionless scrolling is really nice when browsing the internet

Honestly, I would recommend finding a retailer with a good return policy and just trying a few. Mouse is one of those "user preference" peripherals where reviews don't mean a hill of beans (with the exception of pointing out technical problems (I'm looking at you twin eye sensor)).

Your hand shape and your personal preference in regards to sensitivity, button layout etc. are ultimately going to determine how happy you are with it, so I'd base my decision on those more than anything.

Steelseries Xai.
post #8 of 31
In the past 2 years I've clocked around 2000h playing L4D1 and L4D2 competitively. I play extremely low sensitivity (16.5cm for a 180º turn) and I would recommend the Razer Deathadder over any other mouse for low sensitivity. The only drawback it has is skipping on some mouse pads (my old Steelseries had major problems), but any Razer mousepad works great. I'm using the Goliathus.

This is a pain so many mice to choose from. I guess I will have to find a retailer with a good return policy like Chris said and just try different ones. But I will surely try out some of the ones you guys have mentioned.
