need a new mouse

#1GTL581Posted 6/28/2014 8:22:32 PM
looking for a quality mouse that will fit my needs. doesn't have to be anything fancy, but a few extra buttons besides the basic 3 would be nice. 5 would probably be the sweet spot, though even more would be alright i suppose. i guess i use a fingertip grip on my mouse, but the pads of my hand around my palm sometimes rest of it so i'm not exactly sure, just want to find one that will be comfortable as well as the things previously mentioned. for price range i guess up to $100? maybe a little more if need be.

i'm kind of jumping in over my head here as i know nothing about gaming mice. i've been playing almost all types of games, mmo's included, on a $15 hp mouse i got from walmart for the past 5 years, so all help and guidance would be appreciated

Mice that I've owned:
Deathadder
Zowie FK
G9x
G400s
Razer copperhead
IMO3.0
Naos 5000
G502

The G502 fits what you want perfectly, and it has one of the best sensors along with the Deathadder and G400s.

The Zowie FK has issues with jitter that I found annoying as hell.

Out of all those mice my most recommended are the Deathadder, g400s and the G502.

Which of those has a free scrolling mouse wheel?

The G502 has one which can either be free scrolling or click.

The g502 and deathadder were actually the two that had me most interested from what i looked at so far. Any reason to go with one over the other? They both look really nice, but as of now i'd probably have to flip a coin in order to make a decision

The Deathadder is lighter, even without any wieghts in the g502 it's a lil heavy.

g502 has a better sensor , more comfortable, more buttons, and more reliable (razer products have tendency to not last long, mine broke after a year) also logitech has awesome customer support and warranty ( they replace products for free and without question )

deathadder is lighter if weight is an issue, but g502 really doesn't feel that heavy to me, and has option to shift center of balance by adding weights ( i added 3 weights in the back and find it to be perfect) also, if you truly want a light mouse deathadder isn't really a good option either as it isn't exactly the lightest thing itself

Could have picked up a deathadder a few weeks ago for $50, and get a$50 steam card with it for free.

It's not gaming mouse by any means but it is the most comfortable mouse I've used to date. I love my Logitech Performance MX and wouldn't get rid of it. Unless of course they make a better version..which would be hard.

I can let it rest in the palm of my hand for hours and it feels sooooo good. lol
