Best gaming mouse for medium hands!

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Recommend me a mouse!

I currently have a G9X but I hate Logitech (too generic)

Considering:

Razer Imperator
Roccat Kone +
Roccat Kova +
Mionix Naos
Gigabyte 8k
Zowie Mice
Any other good mouse!

Money is no object (or at least very minor)

I used to have a death adder and I loved that mouse but it died on me. I also want to try something new. The G9x is too small/short/stubby. It makes me feel like I have an xbox controller in my hand.

I have medium sized hands, and I'm wondering which mouse would be ideal for that. I was considering the imperator because I can get one for 60 bucks, and it seemed like the only downside was the price. But then again razer is mildly generic too. If price is not taken into consideration, which mouse is best?

Thanks

(also, not considering anything microsoft or logitech at all)

Another DeathAdder? biggrin.gif

Guess you can call me a fan boi.

My old Adder started to show some double click issues and I could not bring myself to try a different mouse; its that comfortable.

I'd stick with your Logitech G9x. There's a reason Logitech is so popular; they make some of the best peripherals. Even Razer's Mamba (owned it for 5 months) couldn't compare to my G9x.

But if you really feel that inclined to buy another mouse, get another DeathAdder.

Mionix naos 5000! Fantastic mouse!

You might look at a R.A.T 7 or 9; otherwise, maybe a Razer Lachesis or Mamba (bit dumb for $100, though) based on your love for the DeathAdder. I dunno about the Imperator because it's shape is reminiscent of the Logitech G series, which I think feel weird.

I'm selling the Raptor Gaming M3X mouse, Might interest you. Pretty good for medium sized hands.

I got the Storm Sentinel Advanced several weeks ago as an upgrade to my MX-518. The Storm Sentinel Advanced is a great mouse loaded with plenty of options as well as.

On the fly DPI adjustment (5600 dpi)
Weight System
up to 5 profiles on saved on 1 mouse (can take mouse and hook it onto the pc and the profile is saved locally to mouse)
LED colors change
8 Button mouse

That is just on the mouse

If you load up the software onto your computer you can have up to 8 profiles, change the configuration of the buttons to most anything you want, including macros.

Thanks for your input but I'm definitely staying away from logitech. I am considering something more like the mionix 5k or the roccat stuff but I don't know of anywhere that I can try them out. Also, I work at a large computer retailer, and I can't even count how many RAT 5/7/9s we've had to RMA, so none of those will do. Does anyone know much about the gigabyte 8k? I'm considering that as well.

Roccat kone+ is great but feels a bit heavy, but it have more options than pretty much any other mice. The scrollwheel is better than the mionix and its smaller in size so you can even use fingertip with the mouse
Mionix naos is more comfortable and lighter with better coating that won't come off

It's really up to you. But If you are getting the mionix naos, I would get the mionix naos 3200 as its almost the same as mionix naos 5000 just cheaper, with less dpi options and no weights
