Shopping for smaller mouse

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I had to use a notebook mouse a few days and it suited my fingertip grip far more then the usual larger gaming mice I have tried and was alot more comfortable. Because of this I have decided to buy a replacement for my rather ancient Habu.

The ones I have narrowed it down to are the Razer Orochi, Roccat Pyra and possibly the CM Spawn. I will be using the mice in wired mode and on a hard mousemat. The Orochi is probably my favourite at the moment with the placement of the thumb buttons, the Pyra thumb button looks too high for easy use and the Storm just looks uncomfortable. Unfortunately I there is nowhere I could go to try holding the mice.

I am looking for advice/recommendations from users that have tried any of these mice or any others I should be looking at, thanks

I have small to medium sized hands and the small gaming mouse’s give me hand cramps so I know what you mean. I have tried the Razer Orochi, it’s a pretty good mouse but its a little to small imo.

I use the Logitech g500 and would recommend it. Not to big yet not to small and very comfortable. That’s my recommendation.


If you really want a small aka note book sized mouse the razer is the best out of the three you listed.

That has to be a joke. G500 is HUUUGE

do you need side buttoms? Otherwise steelseries kinzu and razer abyssus would be perfect. G9x is great too if you need side buttoms its just not that comfortable as the other 2

The g9x is actually the mouse that gave my hand bad cramps. I returned it for the G500. The 500 didnt seem huge to me but to each his own I guess.

At least one side button is essential on a mouse for me unfortunately and I have had problems with both the logitech mice I have had, probably just bad luck but that sort of thing turns me off using them again.

I know mice are a very personal choice and we all have our preferences. I am mainly concerned about a quality 'feel' than dpi or profiles etc.

I have a Logitech G9 and I like it a lot. It's smaller than those huge common logitech ones and you don't feel like you're resting your palm on a mound of mouse.

The G9 definitely feels high quality. The way you hold it is very comfortable is feels easily controllable.

Lacks thumb buttons tho. =P

Then again, you've already ordered junk with Philips Twin Eye on it.

Good luck with that.

owning the g9x and orochi there actually fairly similar with the small grip on the g9x, the orochi tends to have lower buttons and is a tad bit slimmer but height wise there the same.
also with the orochi be aware that the cable is rather short when i was using it as the primary mouse for my desktop (used for laptop now) i had to plug it into my old keyboard.

little comparison pick
