Recommend me a gaming mice.... - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I'm sorry but these types of threads pop up every so often and really there's only a few things you need to think about.

1. will it be comfortable:
go to the store.. or find someone who has one

2. are the specs up to par with what you need?
You dont need 9000 dpi, in fact most casual players play on too high of a sensitivity/dpi.
You also dont need 20 mouse buttons, unless you play an rpg and even then you still dont need it. So Just make sure there isnt a huge issue with the sensor aka read a few reviews.

3. A mousepad is just as important as the mouse.


But in all honesty, the most important aspects in a mouse is how comfortable and reliable it is. I've played TF2 at a competitive level, in ESEA, Cevo, Cal (died), and twl. Every season being in the top 3 of my division. A new mouse with 100 gimmicky features wont make you better, playing the game will. Which is why many old school gamers have never changed to a newer mouse model, because they are comfortable with their old one.

So far, I've had over 5 mice in the last week going through the very same thing as you. It's tough, because all of the mice have their pros and cons.

Razer Imperator -- a good, more claw grip styled mouse. Smooth finish. Lightweight.

Razer Mamba -- is more palm grip focused. Same smooth finish. Hard to explain, but the buttons are phenominal. The palm area of the mouse is taller than on the imperator making it more comfortable for my hands.

Logitech G500 -- Good all around mouse. A nice ergonomic design and "rough" finish that seems to withstand sweaty palm syndrome after long gaming sessions. The DPI buttons (by default) are placed in a good spot to the left of the left mouse button at a perfect as well.

G700 -- Garbage. At least in my opinion, this $100 mouse feels like $25. The three plastic macro buttons to the left of the left mouse button are angled different to make them easily distinguishable without having to look (good) but actually clicking them leaves much to be desired. It takes quite a bit of pressure to click them. On top of that, move one macro button and the rest of them wiggle -- not very becoming of a $100 mouse.

Honestly, the G500 feels a lot nice than than the G700 to me, and costs $30-$40 less.

R.A.T. 7 -- Wickedly cool design, so-so "fit", and ok performance. Even with all the different pieces, I couldn't get a style that felt comfortable for long time use. Also, the mouse was jumpy as hell no matter the DPI, like it was having trouble tracking. I cleaned it out with air, tried different surfaces/mouse pads/and even returned it for another R.A.T. 7. I don't think it's worth the $100.
