Help Reqd Mouse Infestation

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay i need to buy a new mouse

My needs
I am a Civil Engineer, so i need it for designing purposes, 3D modelling, AutoCAD, STAAD etc, also browsing and regular day to day use, not much of use for gaming, but my designing does involve very intricate and precision work with the mouse.

My budget:- Well I wouldn't mind paying 80$ for a mouse provided it's worth it, i mean i don't want it breaking off in a year or so, so need a sturdy durable mouse

I would like a mouse that can be used both wirelessly as well as wired

Laser, optical doesn't matter as long as it delivers nicely

Not much use for extra buttons, just need the 2 extra buttons that are on the side to scroll backwards and forwards while browsing

Any suggestions guys, want to avoid razer products, cos basically the company sucks, and it's products are flashy but cheap, so no razer recommendations

Thanks !!

Logitech G700

Here

While it does have buttons you may never use, it does have the ability to go wireless or be wired.

I have not pulled the trigger on this myself I am waiting for my G7 wireless mouse to die.

I also have a great fondness for my G7 and IDK if I can ever go to a different mouse, but if I was to go to another mouse it would be the G700 or The Kone+

Logitech MX518, the on the fly adjustable DPI is wonderful for doing Graphic/CAD work
It is one that I recommended to a lady I did a custom build for that does Graphic/CAD work and she is very pleased. She wouldn't trade it.

It cannot go wireless, but it is a great mouse with great features.
It has the two buttons on the side like you requested.

Logitech MX518

It is also $35.99 with free shipping

Man Mx518 is such a good mouse performance wise, but who the hell builds a mouse like it has been beaten to death, only logitech can do it. why couldn't they have atleast given an option for a sleek smooth grip that could be bought and put on instead of that demented piece of *you know what*, it's just fugly to look at for me, and unfortunately G7 is not available where I live, Kone + i feel is overpriced.

So anymore suggestions guys, I am looking steelseries, and i like the ikari laser mouse and it's available as well, but i am hearing people complaining about it dying on them in a few months time, is it a stable sturdy mouse ?

The MX 518 is smooth, it just looks like it has those big dimples on it
You know you could always paint it.

It is a great mouse, but yes that dimple look finish is a little fugly.

I have one that I have had for many years.

You should probably just go for the MX518, since it should be accurate enough AND it has adjustable DPI. The latter should be the main requirement which would disqualify a generic mouse--it's useful to be able to go from flicking quickly around menus, to being able to move the mouse a lot without overshooting.

Depending on how comfortable you are with keyboard shortcuts/menu clicking, you might end up being surprised at how useful macro buttons can be. As you seem to have enough dispensable income, I don't think that it'd hurt to go with the G700. Even if you don't see an immediate use for extra buttons, you'll probably want to mess around with them and suddenly find yourself mapping many useful macros to them.

Ultimately, it's down to how much you want to spend.
