Razer Deathadder 1800 DPI

Razer Deathadder Black Edition 3500 DPI(although this one has a high lift off distance, basically when u pick up your mouse to center it, it still tracks a little when in the air) Not that big of a problem though. Simple fix is to buy new mouse feet for the DA and stick them over the old ones, or some people have taped off part of the sensor and it has helped. You can google this tape one.

Zowie EC1 or EC2 < Highly recommended by many gamers.

You're going to get 100 different responses to your question, but truthfully..... it depends.

My response to a similar question here.

First of all, you need to figure out (a best guess) as to how you'll hold the mouse when you're gaming. There are generally three different ways you can hold a mouse, and each has different mice specialized for that position.

Read through this article regarding mouse position (palm, grip, fingertip), and let us know how you hold the mouse (or a best guess). The most common style is the palm grip, which the Razer Deathadder, Logitech G500, and Logitech MX518 are best for. Note you can use more than one grip style on the same mouse.

http://www2.razerzone.com/MouseGuide/html/palmgrip.php

I for example tend to use a combination of a palm grip and a claw grip. I have a Razer Deathadder, and it's good. I just bought a Logitech G500 though, and it's hands down the most comfortable mouse I've ever used.
Hope that helps!

I'll dispute, seeing as there are much better mice out there.

To start off, most people aren't willing to use lower resolutions. 400 DPI/CPI isn't as effective on a 1080P screen unless you turn down your sensitivity to around 45-50cm/360 with a FoV of 80/90, but at that point you're constantly hitting negative acceleration due to the mere 1.55m/s perfect control rate. Anything higher and you're skipping pixels to compensate for the speed on a 3D plane. These mice are really only effective for mid sens forearm based players that utilize a small 4:3 resolutions.

Build Quality is laughable in comparison to your basic Logitech or even Razer (dare I say it), but I will admit that the sensor will hold up much longer than your average mouse. The scroll wheel encoder is a thin piece of plastic and will eventually break within months depending on how much you actually use it. Not many people are willing to replace these mice. I personally got mine in bulk from china for a while.

I don't think someone with the name of WMO1.1a will see eye to eye with you.
I've seen the mionix naos 5000 and the GIGABYTE M8000X go on sale for about 50$. I myself love my razer deathadder 3.5g due note that these are plam grip based mice.
edit: hokeyplyr48 WMO1.1a is going ot have fun with you, I'd recommend stating why it's so good ( I do think it's a bad mouse but that's not enough of a reason ).
edit: totally spoke wrong of the mx518.
