Mouse suggestion

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm looking into getting a new mouse. Right now I have the mx518 on a qcK pad but the coating is slowly ripping off of the mouse. I have big hands and prefer to palm grip. I play mostly FPS and sc2 with low sensitivity.

I just want to get some suggestions as to what would fit me. I like the shape of my mx518 so anything with a similar shape too would be nice.

Thanks!

Depends on how big your hands are.

If you arn't a basketball player I would say go for the Xai, if you have huge ass hands go for a DA.

Would HIGHLY recommend against the Kinzu. If you do a search, you'll find the mouse is highly inaccurate with a lot of acceleration.

Skylit did a quick review but you can use the search function for other threads on this mouse

http://www.overclock.net/mice/804216...zu-review.html

Personally I would recommend Intellimouse explorer 3.0, Razer DeathAdder Black Edition, Mionix 5000, SteelSeries Xai, or the Roccat Kone+

I used the Xai since release and changed a few days ago to an IME 3.0 (BBY Legends Edition). I personally didn't care for the little acceleration it does have and not being able to use cloth. Waiting for the PureTrak Valor.

I have very large hands and I love my Xai, it fits my hands very well and was easy for me to get used to it.

The Kinzu is like a mini Xai with an optical sensor, but it doesn't have and thumb forward and back buttons on the side. Otherwise I would have one for a back up mouse.

I second this. I have pretty big hands, and I kind of palm it. the bottom of my hand wrests on my mousepad if that makes sense.

GO XAI (oh and if you use the xai, buy a hardpad or else you will experience negative acceleration)

Just get another MX518. There's no absolutely better mouse. Some would say the DA, and I would somewhat agree if it weren't for how cheap it feels.
