New mouse suggestions?

#1Last Grand MageX2Posted 11/24/2013 2:55:40 PM
So I have a Razer Deathadder, and I love the size and shape of the mouse, but I hate the build quality, mine is failing after about 1.5 years of use. Can anyone recommend a mouse with the the same shape, size and sensor quality, but with superior build quality?

I think a very similar shape and size to the deathadder is the Zowie EC1 Evo. They also have a very good sensor. The knock on them is that many people have issues with the scroll wheel. Zowie just announced a new version, the Zowie EC1 EVO CL. It is supposed to have a different scroll wheel, but no one knows whether it will be any better. It is available end of this or beginning of next month.

The scroll wheel is what's dying on my Deathadder, and I've heard that the Deathadder 2013 has better build quality than the one I have, so right now it's looking like a new Deathadder is my best bet.

It's not the exact shape of the Razer, but a G400s is pretty baller.

Should've mentioned in the OP, but I hate the G400s, my friend has one and I feel like the side buttons are practically useless due to their positioning.

Zowie FK meets all those requirements. I would have said G400s though.

I have the Zowie FK. I love it, but the shape and size is quite different from that of the Deathadder.

I assure you, the build quality of the latest Deathadder it not good at all. I have it and it feels extremely flimsy and the bottom of it is uneven for me so it rocks from side to side; extremely irritating. I had the Naga before this and the quality was at least 5x better than the Deathadder now.

Ah I see, I only saw it once at my friends house and thought it looked the same

If that's 1.5 years of constant use that's not bad for how long the mouse lasted. And I'm not talking about JUST Razer. In any case, A new adder would probably be the best bet if you really liked the shape and size. There aren't many electronics stores anymore that have many mice set up to test any more but if you have a local one, scope it out and see if something feels right in your hand.
