Post by: microsoft windows on Sat, 29 January 2011, 13:22:31

I have too many mice but currently I'm using Steelseries Kinzu with Puretrak Perfect Glide and I can't use any other mouse...I'm addicted.

I have a Razer Salmosa too and I enjoy this 2 the most of the mice I have.

I want to have rhe Razer Salmosa Asian Edition or de Korean Edition one. But It seems that it's only available in USA and Asia. At least some months agoo it was available in the USA in the main page from Razer at 29$. BTW I found it's not available anymore : http://store.razerzone.com/store/razerusa/en_US/pd/productID.176851400

I'm still quite enamoured with my Gigabyte GM-8000X.  I like to abuse my mice and use their failure as a pretense to purchase upgrades.  Alas, I still have a pair of Microsoft Optical Explorers (1.0, I suppose, circa 2002) which stubbornly refuse to die.  Ugly chunky pieces o' crap.  I'm surprised they aren't beige.

Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0!

The first mouse I ever bought was a MS Wheel Mouse Optical 1.1a. I used it for years until i 'upgraded' to a Logitech MX518. Never liked it as much but had to justify buying it. :D I went back to my WMO and used it until it broke 9 years in to it's life. The 3.0 was just meant to tide me over for a little while but I'm now in love.

Logitech LS1 laser mouse (cheap but pretty decent) for my workstation and a magic trackpad for my Macbook. I like the trackpad; if I can figure out how to get it to work on Debian I might get one for my workstation too.

I also have a Kensington Expert Mouse 4, but I can't get used to it.

Did you have to make any cuts on those feet?  They look like a perfect fit.  I bought some replacements from puretrak for my g500 not too long ago and so far none of them fit well and I can't cut them to fit properly because I suck :/

I have used an MX1100 for about 18 months now, and the scroll is now jittering when I left click.  When I'm playing BC2, it is sometimes enough to switch my weapon while firing.  It was intermittent until this past weekend, and is now too frequent to use.  I just ordered a g500, and from everything that I have heard about it, it seems like I will be much happier. Oh, I found it on amzn for only 50 bucks, which made me quite happy.

Ironically I'm using it right now. It's only 1992, not that old. Only as old as me :)
Unless you think I'm ancient...

It's actually not yellowed at all; IBM used good plastic like in the Model M. So it stays its normal creamy beige colour.
Plus it's brand new (I was the first to open it), so...

Well if the L40 trackball doesn't sate your fancy, the ScrollPoint Pro is certainly a more modern device. I love that thing... I need to get more as it's one of my most favourite mice to use. But the genius china's Lenovo discontinued them because they would rather make cheap crap.

Has anyone here hacked a 3" arcade trackball into a PC yet? New ones (http://www.happcontrols.com/trackballs/trackballs.htm) can be a bit costly, but I see that ancient Atari (Missile Command, Centipede, etc) trackball parts are auctioned all the time, often for ~$30, even less if somehow broken. Wiring up a little mcu and PS/2 interface to one of these would be easy enough ... in fact, many of the new trackball models come with integrated PS/2 or USB anyhow, it's just a matter of building some sort of chassis.
 
Is it worth the effort? Do trackballs generally suck? I expect they are (or can be) high precision, at least some of the "heavy" models. Of course bigger is better, nobody wants small balls. I also expect they'd require frequent takeapart/cleaning unless you only handle them with rubber gloves. The last time I used a trackball was about the same year eIBM's L40 was made.
 
Nobody here uses tablets, touchscreens, lightpens, styli, other pointing interfaces?

how does the imperator feel compared to the G500?  I have the G500 but i have never owned or felt the razer mouse and it looks like i might like it!  Although i really like this G500, it is very nice!  :)

I ordered a little WACOM tablet (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823100055). What the hell, eh? If I like it I'll consider upgrading to a bigger & better model. At least I'll finally be able to digitize my written signature properly.
 
I never liked the G500.  It's alright, I suppose.  But it looks and feels oversized and my GM-8000X is far superior in every way (including cost).

my hands are oversized, so i need a big mouse or my hands start to cramp up.  :P  from the base of my hand to the tip of my middle finger is a little over 21cm and my middle finger itself is a little over 9cm or so.

I had a logitech MX500 before the imperator and i have to say it's completely different. You can customize the mouse buttons and laser settings and switch through the settings with the mouse buttons on top. For the usual applications i use 3000 dpi settings and for games i crank it up to 5600 (with max polling rate). Some will say that's too much, too sensitive but i feel it's much more convenient to have it maxed out on the mouse and to lower the mouse sensivity in the game, you get a very precise control that way. It's not a cheap mouse but it's worth every cent to me ^.^

I started off with one of those Kensington Mouse-in-a-box mice.

Then I found my Logitech Mini Optical hiding somewhere among the rest of my older electronics.  I found out that it was an awesome mouse for Starcraft, so I popped it open, removed the weight, and started playing.  It's extremely light and perfect for those who use a fingertip grip on the mouse.

The only downside to it was it was a 400 DPI mouse, and with today's resolutions and a need for accuracy in SC2 I decided to get a new mouse.

For Christmas a Razer DeathAdder 3.5G as a present to myself along with a Steelseries QCK mouse pad.  They both feel and handle like a dream.  The DeathAdder is a lot heavier and larger than the LMO, but I just love the way it feels.

Supposedly the DeathAdder is for those who use the palm grip, but I'm more of a claw style and I find it to be fitting for my needs.

An ideal mouse would have probably been the Salmosa, but that one doesn't have the buttons on the side (which on my DeathAdder, I use for quicker browsing and navigation).

My first gaming mouse was the logitech mx510. It was the best mouse I owned and I loved it. After a year of two the cable broke somehow and I replaced it with mx518. Same feeling no new mouse experiences. So I have this mouse for more than 4 years and it is still working great :) Nevertheless the mousefeets and the logitech logo on the top has dissapeared...

Just a couple days ago I sold my two Logitech mice, the G5 rev1 and MX518 and replaced them with just one Steelseries Ikari Laser. I didn't really use the G5 all that much so I didn't need two mice and I got the opportunity to try the Ikari before I bought it. I really fell in love with the shape of it, so I thought I had to get it for my gaming mouse.

So far my experience is very positive. I set the Ikari to have two different dpi settings, one for gaming and one for desktop use. For gaming I use 1000dpi, and for desktop I use 1400dpi. Seems perfect so far. I'm not sure if the Laser sensor is much of an improvement over the old MX518, but the shape makes up for that in my opinion.

For work I use the trusty Logitech Performance MX. I still think this mouse has the best shape of all mice I've ever tried (even the predecessor MX Revolution). Nothing bad to say about this mouse, but I haven't really tried gaming on it so I can't say much about how it works for that kind of use.

I started with an Atari Mouse (http://www.flickr.com/photos/grooverfw/391225798/).
With PCs I started with a bunch of generics
First good mouse was a Microsoft Home Serial (http://www.recycledgoods.com/product_images/b/282/s_p_31100_1__57643_zoom.jpg). The first mouse to survive my Diablo habit. I held on to this for a long time, since optical wasn't really suitable for gaming for a while (and I had a habit of abusing the characteristics of ball mice for fast turning in FPS games)
Eventually the serial conversion became an issue and I bought a Kensington mouse in a box (http://images.esellerpro.com/2131/I/275/47/scalePicture%20037.jpg), which didn't last too long (Mouse buttons lost their tactile feel)

Then I bought a mx510 (http://www.tweakers.net/ext/i.dsp/1076768424.jpg), used it for ages, eventually wore out the scroll wheel just inside warranty, and Logitech mailed me out a mx518 (http://netgamer.3dn.ru/15928ab0db64.jpg) to replace it. I played a bunch of FPS games so I eventually wanted a higher DPI mouse, so I went with a MS Sidewinder mouse (http://www.gadgetgrid.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/microsoft-sidewinder-mouse.jpg), which developed awful tracking issues, so I replaced it with what I use now, a G9x (http://www.digitaltrends.com/wp-content/uploads/images/reviews/full/6215/20090318_1412461.png); and I'm 100% happy with it.

My first "serious" mouse was the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0. Then, I moved to the Logitech MX518, used that for like 3 years. Just recently I bought a g700 for $50 when it was on sale and had mail-in rebate deal and I couldn't be happier. I don't use all the buttons it has, but it is nice to have a really responsive wireless mouse with adjustable DPI.

I am a huge MX 518 fan. No other mouse has left me feeling complete :) And the time I tugged the cord a little too hard, Logitech replaced it no questions asked. I just wish they still came in colours other than Silver.

thats how i feel about them, but i just stick with logitech since they are comfy, just not as comfy   :P   Plus, logitech's warranties are just the best, you just call them up with a proof of purchase and 90% of the time they just ship you a replacement no questions asked!   :D

  • could be a worthy replacement for my current mouse.
The twin-eye engine isn't bad in the sense that it doesn't feel right. Many have praised how well it tracks and how well it performs, though it depends on the surface.

The reason why it gets so much hate is because of the fact it has the z-axis bug(the mouse shifts your view by a number of pixels about 100 or more; when lifting and resetting your mouse back down). People who are low sens and lift their mouse off and set it back down. This also affects people who are higher sensitivities and or use mouse acceleration and continuously lift off and put back down their mouse to change their view using their wrist.

I use a Mionix Naos 3200. The Razer DeathAdder Black Edition is terribly tempting to get though. I tried using my SteelSeries Xai again and just like every other mouse now the clicks are too hard, the Naos 3200 clicks are so light it's like a cloud.

Weird. The Ikari Laser took some getting used to because it has considerably lighter clicks compared to all the Logitech mice I've tried and used. I haven't tried the Xai, but now I'm tempted to find out if the clicks are much different from Ikari..

The SteelSeries Xai has probably the firmest click I've encountered on any mouse.

edit: Which is great for FPS games I think, a firm click makes damned sure you wanted to do it, I like light clicks for what I do though(mostly RTS.)

Using a Xai at the moment. I normally use a 36cm/360 in shooters with no acceleration. I've set it at 1620dpi.

Used:
- Deathadder (bought it twice, sold it twice. Can't stand the shape)
- Diamondback 3G (broke down, couldn't get another one)
- Diamondback 2G (loved it, couldn't get another one)
- Krait (Too small compared the Diamondback 2G)
- Kinzu (Acceleration is all over the place, it's really bad)
- Abyssus (Was okay, didn't feel as well built as all of the other mice mentioned above)

My new WACOM bamboo stylus/tablet is awesome for handwriting, or at least it would be if it wasn't so damned tiny.  It's more responsive than the stylus/touchscreen parts from my ancient PDAs, it happily doesn't suck (like a laptop touchpad) as I half-expected.  Size matters, bigger is better, too small just doesn't satisfy and no it just doesn't matter how well you use the damned tablet.
 
I've found that when used as a second mouse (and equipped with a TrueTip Finger Stylus (http://www.truetip.com/fingerstylus.html) on each hand so I don't have to grab at anything) I can get incredible extreme-dpi tablet accuracy for fps sniping, heeheehee.  I highly recommended this cheap cheating bastard trick, along with leet on-screen crosshairs (http://www.thebestcasescenario.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23840).

Razer DA (1800dpi)
MX510
Kensington Expert Mouse
MS Natural 7000

Without getting into any headshot machismo BS, the DA feels really great for me for all purposes.  Good shape, good button feel, good tracking, nice glide.  I had one brick on me (my wife wanted to use the PC, I did a user fast switch and the mouse didn't work any more) but Razer replaced it.  I haven't had any durability concerns with the rubbery coating, but I know that some might depending on your grip and skin chemistry.

I had a Wacom Intuos3 to use for Photoshop.  I never really used it much so I sold it.

I had a Razer Lachesis for about 10 minutes before I realized I hated the shape and returned it.

I'm on a Mamba right now. Used to love this thing when I didn't use my desktop a lot, but now that I'm on it some 3-4 hours a day the thing makes my hard hurt. So I bought a Naos 3200...looks sexy and perfect for my big hands. Love that form factor! Can't wait til Friday :p

These next two weeks are going to be fantastic. Filco tenkeyless coming in the mail early next week, Naos 3200 and Samurai Xai Hien mousepad, maybe a new pair of headphones soon...so psyched!!

My wallet isn't :( Girlfriend finally payed me back for rent and I go BUCK WIIIIIILD on Amazon.

I used a general electric cheap 400 dpi optical mouse for 3-4 years and competed at high levels (Cal-Invite) in CoD1 and UO back in 2003 era.  The most comfortable mouse because it's super light and basic shape just like the intellimouse 3.0.

Then got some mild carpal tunnel and/or tendonitis in right thumb and ring finger.  I lingered over the years and then used a logitech mx518 for the past 5 years at least.  That mouse is just too heavy I finally realized.  I used it for MMO's (Lineage2, Aion) and TF2 in cevo/cal leagues.

The thing is that I could never disable mouse acceleration on 1680x1050 with a 1600 dpi mouse like the mx518.

I use the Steelseries xai now.  Thing is ****in awesome hardware spec wise.  And software programmability wise.  The mouse is very basic shaped like my General electric mouse.  The only downside to it, IMO, is it's slightly heavy FOR ME.  Although compared to 95% of other mice it's lighter than average.  I'm also a claw-grip type.  I'm definately not a palm rest/palm gripper.

It's only semi-machismo this time around. With my cheap tablet trick I have some chance of pulling these sorts of shots off. Without this trick I suck like a monkey. One mouse moves fast, one aims precisely (and the tablet is fantastic for this).
 
lol, I bought the WACOM for CAD work, though it hasn't actually seen any such use yet.
 
Agreed, the lachesis seemed too clunky to grip comfortably.

I'm using a CM Storm Sentinel as well.  No problems with the laser at all - from my understanding, the latest drivers fixed some inconsistencies with tracking.  For what it's worth, I'm also using a Razer Goliathus mouse pad.

I'll have to give that a try. I just got the Naos 3200 from UPS today and while it's a great mouse, it's not the ubermouse I was looking for (size wise). I think this might have to do with my hand being used to the Mamba, with the Naos being a different build design it feels like a stranger in my hand if you know what I mean.

Build quality is definitely better than the Mamba, though. Not going back to Razer after this...a $50 mouse that has much superior build quality than a $140 mouse doesn't seem right to me.

Despite what the picture may suggest, it does not have a side-to-side scroll wheel.  The scroll wheel is a standard one.  


For $4.99, I can't complain.  It tracks well on my table and is extremely light.

I think you could get used to the shape and size of the Naos. I'm quite interested in the Naos 3200 myself and would love to try it out somewhere, but it seems that there are no shops that have the mouse on display so I could try if the shape would suit me or not.

The width is great for me, it's just the height is a little strange coming off a mamba. If you've used a Mamba/Deathadder you'll know what I mean by the 'height' of it. The Naos is slightly shorter. I like to palm grip my mice where my palm is at the top of the mouse, with the Naos I have to palm grip with my palm farther back. If it was the height of the Mamba it'd be perfect for me.

I'm getting used to it thought. I like everything about it more than the Mamba, except for the height, which I'm still unsure on. It's not that I don't like it, it's that it feels weird, I guess. I'm starting to find a combination of the claw/palm grip to be the most comfortable and natural for me.

My Ikari is pretty low and I still kind of like the shape of it. I might give the Naos 3200 a go, since I could order one for a decent price right now.

+1 for Ikari, hands down the best contour I've ever came across with, such comfortable support for every one of my fingers, if you can live with the ****ty steelseries driver.

I don't mind the drivers. The only problem with the Ikari is that it's sometimes quite hard to lift up because of the shape. My hand always slips a little when I need to lift and move the mouse. The shape is in every other way much better than my old G5 and G500, but because of the problems I'm having with lifting it, I'm considering trying the Mionix Naos 3200.

I'm starting to really get a feel for the Naos. I'd even say I like it's form factor more than my Mamba now. It feels more natural in my hand.

I've heard it's the same dimensions all around as the Ikari. If that's the case, you'll love this mouse. The way your hand sits is quite natural and comfortable, and the rubbery coating is nice. It's also easy to life up since it's got the little finger rests on the right side. Your ring finger and pinky when resting on the side of the mouse will easily tighten slightly and allow for lifting up of the mouse.

The lift off distance is slightly larger than my Mamba. It's a smidgen (I know, I'm so exact) less than the width of a cigarette...i.e. if resting on the cigarette it won't move the cursor, but if you press down a bit the cursor will move slightly. The Mamba has about the same distance, but it feels like less for some odd reason. Maybe because it's lighter?

i thought putting the sensitivity setting at the middle makes it 1:1?

For a couple of years now I've used a  Microsoft Wireless Notebook Presenter Mouse 8000 with my netbook, via Bluetooth.  It's tiny.  It also doesn't seem to track all that well on my shirt, which is what I generally use for a mouse surface when I'm lying on the couch. :)

For the desktop, I was using Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 V2, but I  recently gave it to my wife to use with her notebook, because it has a smaller dongle than the one she was previously using.

I've moved to a Microsoft X8 wireless mouse, with a Steelseries SX pad.  The X8 is the best mouse that I've personally used.  It seems like it tracks perfectly, feels very precise, and has been glitch free.  I like using the adjustable CPI, and the rechargeable battery lasts about a week when it's off the wire, though I keep it attached about half the time. The only complaint I have with it is, because of its shape, it takes more effort to lift and reposition than I'd like.  Especially since I usually have to avoid hitting the side buttons.  I use a fingertip claw grip.

I have to mention the SX pad as I may like it even more than the mouse.  The key I think, is to buff on a very light coating of silicone lube (from a dive shop) which makes it very slippery, and keeps the noise down.  The black anodized aluminum was a little noisy when I first used it.

I'm enjoying this combination.

So unfortunately, after a week or so of using the Mionix Naos 3200, I've decided to return it to Amazon (best return policy EVER). My issues with it were few, but important to me.

Pros:
-Great grip
-Great feel
-Very comfortable
-tracks well
-Supports fingers very well

Cons:
-Prediction kind of screwed me a bit in games
-Too low, this is the biggest issue for me

If you like the Ikari, I'm sure you'll love this mouse. But if you're coming off of something with a high arch like the DeathAdder or Mamba and like the shape, I doubt you will like this mouse for longer than 15 minutes. I just couldn't get used to how low it was. My hand would literally ache after some use (the ache would be in the palm of my hand), while the Mamba just seems to sit naturally in my hand (and looks badass too).

Overall, I'd give the Naos 3200 an 8.5/10, and the Mamba an 8/10 overall, but I just couldn't get used to how low it was after spending a year with the Mamba.

I remember the Mamba felt perfect in my hand from the first time I used it, and with the Mionix it felt perfect also. But, that feeling diminished after a bit of use, leading me to be very skeptical of if I'd ever truly like it over my Mamba. I decided to return it rather than risk losing the money.

My advice to all mouse-buyers...the Mionix is a GREAT mouse, one I think you should get only if you don't mind the height of it. It's not 'low' vs. other gaming mice, it's of the average height, but it's lower than the DeathAdder/Mamba, and that proved to be the biggest drawback for me.

Now, maybe I'll start looking at that Logitech MX Revolution, or whatever they call their wireless mice. It looks HUGE. I want a BIG gaming mouse, something that supports my ring finger and maybe pinky, too.

I think if they made the Naos as high as the Mamba in the middle, it'd be the perfect mouse for me. Unfortunately, though, I'm sending it back to Amazon tomorrow, and I will use the refund to try out a new mouse.

Any suggestions with the above in mind:?

You should check the Logitech G700 out. I think it's as high (or almost) as the Performance MX, but it is supposedly better for gaming.

yep, I still prefer my G500 after trying out the Deathadder.  The Deathadder just was not a comfortable mouse for me at all since I have huge hands and use a fingertip/claw grip.  Not a good grip for the Deathadder at all imo.

It's definitely worth the money if you like the Ikari shape. I honestly think it's the best mouse I've ever owned...I just couldn't get used to the shape, which is a shame. My brother picked up a RAT7 so I'll give that a try and see if I can try out the G700 somewhere around here. Thanks for the info!

I have  a few mice and I have used them all for long periods of time on and off. I have a Intellimouse 3.0 which I now use and is probably my favourite mouse, with Steelseries glides on it at the moment because hyperglide are an absolute joke.

I also have a Deathadder (old 1800DPI version), Wheel mouse optical (which I love), intellimouse 1.1, and a MX518. I like all mice, but variations in weight and shape put me off them; I find the 3.0's shape beautiful and comfort is there for me. I find it a little light, but I put up with it. The sensor is fine for me too and I generally prefer no prediction so MS mice are the best.

I spent a lot of time trying to figure out the right ergonomics, holding positions, wrist vs elbow, etc, etc. In the end I got this symmetric Kinzu mouse and I don't think I've been more satisfied.
Title: What mice do you use?
Post by: Exoverture on Wed, 02 March 2011, 12:34:38
I'd have to say my favorite mouse would be the G9x.

I previously had the MX518, and tried out the G5, G500. Compared to the G9x, it feels like I'm gripping a cylinder bar when I go back to the 518/G5/00.

It's an excellent shape, I use the precision grip. The default grip is not only worse, but the texture rubber peels off gradually (same as MX518). The precision is infinitely better.

Comfortable, great mouse wheel, sturdy, and build quality is pretty top notch imo. It's definitely for claw grip users.

One con I would have, is that I'm a freak when something plastic-y creaks. Reminds me of fisher price toys. This has interchangeable grips, thus it's not a one piece. For that, it creaks very minimally considering the grip can come off.

A few pieces of (non-seeable when put on) tape on the inside of the grip makes this feel solid as ever.

I have a sidewinder x8. I was disappointed to read today that Microsoft are cancelling the sidewinder range, as I really like it.

I don't think there is an equivalent wireless mouse with similar features at the same price point. The only similar specced mouse I can think of is the razor mamba, but that is about twice the price.

My brought bought the Rat7 last week and I've had the chance to use it. There's a ton of options to personalize the comfort of the mouse however you like it best, which I love, and after playing with it for an hour and a half today I think it's one of the most comfortable mice I've ever used, if not THE most comfortable.

I stuck with the settings he used, and at first it was a little awkward because the back was so high. But once I adjusted my arm to lay on the desk, the mouse was very, very comfortable. It's high and holds my palm very well, the thumb grip is great, the mouse feels very, very solid, and it tracks fantastic.

I definitely want this mouse. If I can't find my Mamba proof of purchase to get my mouse RMA'd, I'll be getting this for sure. Can't say I've ever used a better mouse. My only issue is the price...$99 is quite steep when you first look at it. But the mouse is so well built I find i'd be willing to pay that price if I couldn't find it much cheaper (I believe Amazon has it for $91).

All in all a great mouse. If I'm going to go with my previous rating system, my rankings would be as such for the mice I've used so far:

Razer Mamba:...........8/10
Mionix Naos:.............8.5/10
Razer Lachesis:.........5/10
Logitech G5:.............7.5/10
Razer Imperator:.......8/10
Intellimouse 3.0:........6/10
RAT7:.......................9/10


If you're looking for a mouse that's very comfortable yet well built and high quality, I'd suggest the RAT. I haven't used the RAT5 but I'm assuming it's the same caliber as the 7, just cheaper. Fantastic mouse!

They still make RAT7?  I thought the current model was Cyborg RAT9.
 
I was impressed by the RAT7 as well, though I chose the Gigabyte GM8000X instead - it has superior specs and although not adjustable it just happens to fit my hand/preferences perfectly.

Yup, it's still alive and well (http://cyborggaming.com/prod/rat7.htm).  My other mouse, the DeathAdder Black Edition doesn't fare too well, though.  The coating on the side is already wearing off..

I have a sidewinder x8. I was disappointed to read today that Microsoft are cancelling the sidewinder range, as I really like it.

I don't think there is an equivalent wireless mouse with similar features at the same price point. The only similar specced mouse I can think of is the razor mamba, but that is about twice the price.


G700 should have no problem to be the successor of Sidewinder X8. The price is even cheaper too.

I'm using my Logitech G500, replacing my older G5... I still have the G5, and it's shape is a lot better than the G500, but I couldn't deal with the jumpy sensor, if only there was a way to transplant the G500 sensor into the G5. I've had the G5 ever since the one with the cracked blue texture came out... Logitech, G5, all of that is gone off of the mouse, and the scroll wheel is even shiny!

Now as for the build quality, the G500 seams a lot lighter. But I love the weights, still doesn't seam as heavy though. Having tried the G9x, I can tell you that it's not as good as either of those, it's way to light on both clicks, and as I do have heavy hands, It really sucks always pressing right click everywhere, So I sold that to a friend, and used the money to buy a G500.

I'd post some pictures, but my camera is dead right now... and my phone takes really bad pictures.

As for my opinions of Razer, I like their products, but after buying a mouse before, a Keyboard, and another Keyboard ( Both BlackWidows ) from them all with problems, I'm never buying a razer product again. I've been wanting to try a R.A.T. 7 though, even though I'm quite happy with what I have.

My ancient G5.
Title: What mice do you use?
Post by: vun on Fri, 11 March 2011, 09:06:40
Got an old G5 that I use when I need a proper mouse I can rely on, a Krait I use with my laptop, a Habu that only works half of the time and a Mamba I originally bought to use with the laptop, but now it's more like a really expensive toy I use wherever.

The Habu, despite feeling cheap and shoddy, was actually one of the better mice I've tried and I don't regret the purchase at all, despite being very expensive for such a shoddy feel.

Now, the Mamba on the other hand... I figured since I could switch to wireless it'd be nice to have with the laptop, and I have some inexplicable nostalgic fondness for Razer, but I didn't do enough research beforehand. So when I saw the base... Well, the wireless point became moot. It's only useful to help keep your desk from cluttering.

Got a G9 on the way that I hope will feel as nice and solid as the G5.

I was in the market to replace my trusty old G5 (the one with the rust coloring). I had it forever, and really liked the way it felt in my hands, but it was pretty beat up and I decided I wanted to try something new.

I bought a Razer Mamba. Very nice mouse, except for two gripes; every once in a while the cursor would freeze on the screen for a split second, and it just never felt right in my hand. My pinkie would always drag entirely too much across the mouse pad.

I then decided to go with the SteelSeries Ikari, mostly because of its ergonomic design. The mouse felt great in my hands, and worked exceptionally well. There was one shortcoming; I couldn't get a good grip whenever I tried lifting the mouse from the pad.

I finally went with the Mionix Naos 5000, which I received just today.  People say it's basically a rip off of the Ikari, and while the shape is nearly identical, IMHO Mionix improved the design. As I stated, the Ikari was difficult for me to pick up during normal use. The Naos 5000's thumb and pinkie grooves are more pronounced, allowing one to better grip the mouse.

So far it performs very well, and the only issue I have is that the software has been crashing. This does not affect the performance of the mouse, as the settings are still being registered. Another bonus is the weight system, which my G5 had, and I absolutely love.

I know it's early, but I am extremely happy with my Naos, and right now - it's the best mouse I've ever owned.

I also have an MX510 but it's at work.  I tried a P-TF but it's too small.  The artisan pad is probably my favorite out of my other pads though - Func F10.s, X-Trac Hammer, Steelseries QCK in various flavors, and X-Trac Ripper.  I wish the artisan pad was as big as the QCK heavy though, cuz I still run out of space :(

I was an MX510 user for years (same case as the MX518 AFAIK) but I fell in love with the Deathadder at first grasp.  To me it felt far more "clean" and responsive than the MX510.  I'm sure it totally depends on your grip, of course.  I don't dislike the MX, but do prefer the DA.

Yeah I found the mx518 fairly difficult to get adjusted to at first and I wish it were less rounded in shape. I also am not a huge fan of how hard it is to click but it does prevent accidental right clicks. I'm just skeptical of all products razer makes since I'm always hearing people complain about the quality.

The only reason I'm still using the mx518 is because of its performance, but there are a few mice I like A LOT more like the g9. It just has a terrible laser so I'd rather put up with a shape I don't like than something that malfunctions. I've read that the g9x is an improvement but I have yet to try one and I'd rather not buy one just to find out :p

My G9x is working great for me, though I haven't tested the older one so I can't say if there's a notable difference. So far I'd say I prefer the G9x laser over my trusty G5, don't know why, though, it just feels good.

I hear that.  I have to say that I'm generally surprised in a good way with the DA.  I had a DA spontaneously brick itself a while back and they replaced it under warranty.  I thought that the famous Razer rubbery coating would have been destroyed (like the pics floating around of a Razer keyboard) but it's holding up great.  The plastic used for the bottom of the mouse is more fragile than the MX510 plastic though.  

When my MX510 wore through it's feet it just became less pleasant to use.  When my DA wore down so the belly started to touch (just in the last week) it picked up a ton of friction and the mouse pad (Ratpadz XT) has really damaged the plastic on the bottom.  The MX510 doesn't pick up any marks and keeps gliding, just not as well.

I now have replacement feet for both on the way.

Using a SS Kinzu right now, was seeing a friend who works at GameStop to pass some time, ended up buying a new mousepad and a Kinzu. Would've gotten an Ikari to see what all the fuss is about, but they didn't have one and I wanted a toy.
Will probably go back to my G9x as soon as I get bored with it, but I might use the Kinzu with my laptop instead of the Krait I use with it now.

Logitech MX-700 to a Razer Mamba to a Razer Orochi.

The MX-700 was nice at the time, and it was getting quite worn. The Mamba was nice but battery life was poor in wireless mode. Orochi is my favourite so far. It's portable and uses AA batteries, which actually last a decent amount of time in wireless mode. It was made better when they finally released the fully-featured drivers for OS X. The downside is the wheel click micro-switch is going, so I have to press harder for middle clicks now. It was actually completely gone before I re-soldered it. It's a different size / shape than typical left / right switches so I can't just dig one out from another mouse. :(

I bought an MX518 in 2005 and have been using it since (170+ days in WoW in addition to a few weeks in CoD plus everything in between) and it just refuses to die. I really want to get a newer 518 with the larger feet, but this one's a tank. I've disassembled it and sanded off the coating when it started to peel and I lost the aluminum logo after 2 years. All of the buttons are as good as day 1 still. If I buy a few more of these, I think I'll be set for life.

Just like the Topre the most expensive is not always the best.

Does it do what my old M950 did and have a quiet but very annoying high pitched squeal when you use it wirelessly?

I've had plenty of mice, far too many actually.  I've had an uncountable number of wireless Logitech mice, and other random non important mice, but here is a list of the ones that I feel are worth mentioning.

Current: CST LtracX (best trackball available, but could be better still.)

#1 small mouse: A4tech x750bf  (really wish i could still find these in the USA, my last one finally died)

#1 large mouse: Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 (most comfortable, smooth tracking, loose scrollwheel(which is better))

Other Mice:

microsoft Intellimouse optical 1.1 (best weight, good texture, smooth tracking, side buttons are wrong though)

microsoft optical 1.0 (best texture, would be my #1 if it had side button's and the tracking that the 3.0 has)

a4tech x750(smooth texture ruins it)

Worst mouse: Razor copperhead (jittery, bad drivers, soft rubber wears quickly, mushy feeling soft scrollwheel)

Best mouse that I don't like: Logitech 518 (hurts my pinky).

Most uncomfortable mouse: Contour mouse (large) (really it's just painful if you have to keep lifting it)

EDIT:
Ok I forgot, I don't know if this one counts, but I think the absolute worst "mouse"/input device that I've owned award has to go to the OCZ Neural Impulse Actuator.

DO WANT.

The only way I found to buy these mice are from e-bay and I'm not used to it since I've never used it.

I have the normal edition but I always have wanted the Asian edition or the Korean edition( the one with orange wheel). I know it was available time ago in USA as in ASIA but as always here in Europe...NO.

Primary - Razer Copperhead (First Edition 2005).

Recently I purchased a R.A.T. 7, DeathAdder, Imperator, and Kinzu.

R.A.T. was too heavy for me, even with all the weights removed.  Good concept, but I didn't really like it.

DeathAdder is nice! Perhaps a touch too big for my tastes though.

Imperator was my girlfriend's fav, I like it quite a bit too, smaller than the DeathAdder.

Kinzu is very small and lightweight.  I like it, but haven't really spent much time with it since I recently replaced the mouseskates on my Copperhead and have been reluctant to retire it.

By overclocking the intelli-mice(WMO, IO 1.1, and IE 3.0) polling rate past 250hz you gain an additional 0.5 meter/s of tracking(1.0 m/s to around 1.55m/s) (http://www.esreality.com/index.php?a=longpost&id=1265679&page=5) enough to avoid most average low sens tracking problems. Though you should really overclock it more to 500hz or 1Khz(if your motherboard can stay at 1Khz stable). Sure it's not as massive meter gain compared to say the MX300 if anyone still has one but the intelli with the polling rate increase can handle most low-sens users.

As for the valor they've changed some things on it aside from grip paint they just announced they changed the microswitches to the Omron D2FC-3M "Yellow Top" switches. Plus they are using the ADNS-3090 which could be considered one of the best optical sensors around if your sticking with optical.

I had mine OC'd to 500Hz but it still was reaching malfunction where it would just stop moving.

Though now it's at 125Hz due to LANs I've been going to do not allow restarts of the computers.

Funny thing is with the readydriver macro at start-up, a while ago I changed the boot sequence to 0 seconds instead of 4 seconds, so the macro couldn't actually do anything, was locked out of my computer and forced to install the OS on a new drive. :smile:

I knew the changes about the Valor, been lurking about on their Facebook and on esreality threads for some time, what are those switches like? I actually have no idea about mouse switches even though I think of myself adept in mice and keyboards.

Most don't but that's mostly because most mice use the standard "white/clear" stemmed omron(D2FC-F-7N), TTC, and zippy brands(about 2-5 different switches most often).

In Asia there's a few who follow modding their mice and switching out the switches to other types(different forces, brands, feel, reaction etc.etc.) except they remove the levers, they stick with downforce rather than lever-action. Most view it as what is the point if the microswitch is so small but it does make a difference. Most of the microswitches are pretty much unknown due to the fact the same ones are always used and plus it's harder to work with a mouse than it is with a keyboard in regards to switches.

It's not just the small size but the weight was reduced even further in the salmosa "asian or pro edition".

And the reason why people would want the salmosa in particular is because it works great for claw grip users or for fingertip users. Combined with the fact as to how light it is it doesn't cause that much fatigue. Which due to it's lightness can be great for either long-term gaming, small hands, specific grip, forcing/adopting new grip, RTS gaming, and to either high or low sens "lifters" who continuously lift up their mouse though for low sens gamers some tend to use a small amount of acceleration(as in quake). Continous mouse lifting 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zwL24ljcyc), Continous mouse lifting 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIGoUAX5RHM), and Continous mouse lifting 3 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljsGpX7vuM8).

The only real negative of it was the fact that it didn't have a flash memory chip to store profiles, it relies on a flip switch underneath like the abyssus. And it has mouse prediction which some don't like. Kinda strange to both the salmosa and abyssus that razer went that route rather than the usual flash memory storage which would have made them more popular due to being able to flash them.

Eh, I've got a bunch of mice. I use a DeathAdder 3500 with my laptop, generally. Really like that mouse, although I'm thinking about getting the Black Edition because it looks so beautiful. I really do miss having easily accessible on-the-fly DPI switching, though. As a result of that, I'm using a Xai at my main desktop. That is a fantastic mouse. I would have to say that my absolute favourite, though, is my old SideWinder X5 which is now dead. That was the most comfortable thing ever. And, I've got a crap little Microsoft Basic Optical mouse that I use when I take my laptop to uni, because the desks there are way too filthy for my beautiful DeathAdder.

Amen to that. I'm now on my second MX518 after i wore my first out after a few years. Still works minus the scroll wheel button and general wear. I ran on a MX510 before it.

I tried upgrading to the laser version but found that at low sensitivities it was unable to track and if i moved to quickly it would spaz out. I RMA it twice and Logitech then decided to send me a MX518 so i wouldn't have to go buy one.

I've yet to find a better wired mouse that fit my hand as well.

Also, what is a nice laser mouse that goes to at least 3000CPI and is very light?  I would prefer something with an up-to-date sensor of course.  Just thinking about trying out a lighter mouse.... Thanks to anyone who helps me out with this!

 
I do not think the Kone is significantly better than any of the other gaming mice in any way (unless the Kone+ is drastically different) it has some bells/whistles that they advertise, but honestly they do not matter much. It is a good mouse, but I think you have to know when you buy it that you are paying a little extra for the looks, not for any practical benefits over some cheaper mice.

Right now I'm using a Razer Abyssus that I bought 2 months ago. Its great for SC2, I claw grip and so its small size and low weight allows me to run it at 3500dpi and just twitch it across my dual 24" monitors with ease. I also have a Razer Mamba that I used for a year and a half, which is a really good mouse, but more suited to FPS due it its size and weight. I keep it around for if I decide to crack open an FPS for half an hour when I just want to chill. I'm using them on a Razer Goliathus Fragged Control edition.

Oh and a WACOM Bamboo fun for photoshop ofc.

Not a bad choice considering it's using the ADNS-3090 and they apparently fixed the LoD/800DPI issue with one of the firmware releases.

I still don't give a **** about dpi and polling speeds beyond what humans can recognize and utilize though

the spawn mouse mostly excites me due to shape, button arrangement and that it seems to have some actual rubber inserts instead of that flaking off "rubberized" crap found on other mice. Plus the price is ok, which tends to help.

I dont know I just stopped using my Kone because of slight tracking issues, not something that major, but to me just not quite as crisp as optical tracking like in the MX 518. Now I am going to try to sell that because I am not sure if I would be able to RMA since the tracking issue is fairly minor.

Agreed. One of the mice I use as well and I was lucky to have gotten a good one. Roccat has some serious QC issues. i know of someone else who had to RMA his 3 times in 2 months. Software is fantastic. But meant for big hands mainly.

The Mionix Naos 5000 is very good as well. Comparable for sure. tried one from a friend of mine. but also meant for Biggish hands.

And as much as I hate Razer, DA Black is a really good piece of work... Too bad about the DPI... Mamba is just crap...

Deathadder, though I'm interested in trying a Zowie EC1.

While I liked the Zowie the prediction was noticeable and I switched to the deathadder. That and the large feet of the Zowie dragged a lot on my pad but its easy to stick some 1.1/3.0 feet on there like hyperglide. And the ec1 was like £50 here which is far too much for that mouse IMO.

Still using a Mionix Naos 3200. I can say with certainty I wouldn't buy another product from them though. The support is terrible, they can't answer a seemingly easy question(if the replacement mouse feet they plan on selling soon are made of the same material as the default mouse feet that come with the Naos.) The mouse feet wore out real fast which makes it scrape on my SteelSeries 9HD so I had to switch to my PureTrak Stealth(cloth pad) which I like just as much but it's still an annoyance.

Next mouse will probably be a Razer Imperator 4g(if the tracking issue is fixed, since they replace the glossy sides with rubberized ones) or the PureTrak Valor. The Logitech G400 looks nice as well though.

Never heard of any jittering issues with the abyssus.

Im using it on a kai.g3 hard pad from artisan @400dpi and 1000hz (switches under the mouse).

Even when I play in 1920x1080 with this low dpi  it's still very smooth. I suggest you buy it nao!

Hmmm that's weird, I searched ESR and it's true a lot of ppl say they had problems with it but I never experienced any jittering on my end.

Also, it's the mouse cypher/cooller uses so that's a pretty good arguement imo :P

As above. The Abyssus is a great mouse, imo. I tried out the DeathAdder but didn't like the feel of it at all.

I'm running 1000hz and 1800dpi though.

I believe jittering to be a problem, I couldn't even draw in paint with my DeathAdder 3G (first ones)

Could you draw some lines and circles for me in paint nrtdx?
It could be like the Xai mice where a small amount are usable and the rest are **** with a horrid amount of positive acceleration.

Oh my god. Just got the abyssus. Was using the G5 from 2006 - 2008, then DeathAdder for 1 1/2 years. IME 3.0 for over a year. So I've only had palm grip mice.

This feels so weird, but in a freaking awesome way, jumped into a game with 8 nightmare bots, hitting better LG and hitting so many rails, I can also ****ing rocket jump easy as piss now. No more looking like a ***got because I'm unable to rocket jump.

Best thing is, little to no jittering when so many people are reporting it.

Only problem is the highish LOD which is fixable with tape apparently.

EDIT: The LOD is actually horrible, I find it hard to play so I have to play without picking up my mouse til I find some blurry scotch tape or something. :(

Mouse acceleration in Windows is more commonly turned off and adjusted in-game. Though some people like The Solutor are just used to it from back in the day with ball mice.

I don't use acceleration in-game or out.

I used a xm518 for a few years, but I wore it out and picked up a  Razer Lachesis.  I developed a repedative stress injury that is causing pain in wrist and shoulder from using that mouse so I've since switched back to a MX518.  My hand wrist and shoulder don't hurt as bad when using the mx518 but I'm still in pain when using it.  I'm about to buy a Mionix Naos 5000 to see how that feels.

That's my exact problem with my Abyssus too. If I'm playing any FPS I plug my old Mamba back in instead and only use the Abyssus for SC2 and desktop stuff, because I run those on 3500dpi and don't need to lift it off at all. I run my Mamba at 800 dpi or something and usually as low as possible ingame for FPS games, because I got used to that when I used to do a ton of scrimmaging against other teams in COD. The Abyssus is smaller, lighter and feels a tad more precise to me at high dpi, whereas the Mamba just has a nice glide and LOD when you want it do large sweeping movements at low dpi.

I got some Sellotape 'invisible tape' for photocopying at Woolworths for $3.88 and covered 2mm of the sensor on the bottom. Tried covering the whole sensor but it impacted the max control.

Abyssus so much better than the Mamba for FPS, once you do the LOD fix of course :)

Razer Nagas, both kinds. I actually like them, and the Epic fixed my only real issues with the first one, being that I could not get a wider grip on it, the terrible mouse key 4 & 5 positioning, and that it did not have adjustable lighting.

I guess now if I have to have an issue, its that they don't have the Logitech MX style "inertia" scroll wheel.  That would actually make it just perfect, for me.

And on one of these, because it's not a real anime, and it's super comfy on my wrists. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004HLUIP0)  I don't leave it out when people come over, though.

Good old IE 3.0 X06 (10y), 1800dpi DeathAdder* (3y), ...and sometimes the throttle's thumbstick of a TM Über Cougar HOTAS! It's funny to see that these kind of mice seem popular with mechanical keyboard users.
Btw, anyone know of where to buy spare covers for DA's or even IE 3.0? There seem to be a lot of limited edition models with outrageous prices for these, like the white covered DA, but the problem is that the rubberised paint won't last long.

* with so many firmware updates on it, it's the only mouse I know of that bloody inverts the X axis on some DOS apps!

I was recommended the Spawn on my hunt for a small mouse.  For SC2 purposes I looked at the Kinzu, MiCO, and Abyssus as well.  I went with the Abyssus and so far so good.  The lift off distance is kind of high, but I'm not lifting that much.  The size and weight are important to me and the Abyssus is extremely light!

I did a comparison video to the Razer Orochi as well.

It's a really nice mouse.  Small, lightweight and comfortable.  Smaller than your G9x (I used to have one) and my R.A.T. 7.  Recently MadCatz told me that I'd won their new R.A.T. 7 Albino so I'm gonna be using/testing that from now so I could post a short review later.

Yup, but it's definitely an improvement over the original PTE sensor that plagued the original R.A.T. (which I also have).  This one I got it for free from Jeff over at MadCatz (from their drawings).  It's still a hefty mouse (for those that prefer heavier mice) but the sensor now is very smooth and the LOD has also been improved.  I only have this for a couple of days so I'll post more feedback later on if anyone's interested.

Nice little collection you've got going there bud.  How big are your hands/what kind of grip style?  

I was hoping to see the mico next to mx300 to compare size... the mico is in the mail currently.  

Also have you found anything better than the steelseries grips...that sticky residue on the back that turns into gooey nasty stuff isn't cool.  They only last like 2-3months tops IME.

Razer Abyssus. I know some might be shaky about razer's products, but it had been the ideal RTS gaming mouse for me personally. Its featherweight is superb and for the cost (which you can find fairly cheap) its packs a heck of a punch. I've had no issues with the mouse at all.

Been using deathadders in all my pc builds for years. I have never had one fail. I have never had one squeak. I have never had the coating come off. It is essentially perfect for my hand, and I simply do not understand where all the hate comes from outside of razer's contrived marketing scheme, and lack of quality outside of the mouse realm.

No hate for razer, but I can't see a single reason to choose a razer mouse (as most of the other parvenu brands) over a good logitech.

At least a BW is mechanical and logitech has no mech keyboard in its line, but the mice ?

I use this one. Razer Diamondback 3g. I generally dont like Razer but i got this one because of the shape. I like how its more narrow on the bottom side. However there are two annoying things about it - The driver allows u to choose between 1800 dpi and 800 dpi. Only. You can still change the sensitivity but still. Also, with the drivers installed the middle click registers 2 middle clicks in Opera. And thats really unpleasant because I use it a lot to open new tabs. My solution so far - uninstall the razer driver (=.

I consider modding it soon - I want to disconnect that blue LED... Its just too bright and blue for me. But overall I like it, I feel like the shape makes up for the other downsides.

I switch between A4tech X-748K (X7 series optical, this: http://www.a4tech.pl/Item.aspx?ITEMNMBR=A4TMYS15917&GroupID=37&SubGroupID=72) and an $2.5 1000 dpi rubber-coated mini rodent from a Polish company (the quality of execution is better than on many top brand products and it has a red glow, lol... I do hold it to be an equal of "gaming grade" mice). Neither of them has a good shape and size for my hand, hence I'm looking for something new.

Logitech Trackman Wheel (older wired models, own a few)
Kensington Turbomouse Pro (first gen, all blue plastic and ball)

does anyone have experience with the A4Tech X-748K? I actually like the shape of the Intelli Explorer 3.0 but I could need a little more dpi so the X-748K seems suitable for me. It's simply black with rubber finish on the sides. So for me the mouse shape itself looks interesting but I have no clue how this mouse performs or which sensor it has or if it has any known issues etc...Is it actually worth buying it, I mean it's not that expensive...

I use a logitech G500. I've been using it for a while, and it's a fantastic mouse. I don't think I could ever go back to a mouse without hyperscroll and side buttons. Also I love the shape and size. It works well for a palm gripper like myself.

Hmm, odd. I rarely use the side buttons and the hyperscroll function on my G9x is rarely used. I can probably count the times I've used it on one hand.
Although the side buttons are very useful, there was a time where I couldn't use a mouse without.

On that site there are also a lot of custom IME 3.0.

Arcane, the X-748K has an ADNS-3080. The usual drawback for that family of sensors is angle snapping, but it might depend on drivers/firmware.

Been using my old Habu the past few days, loving the shape. After a little research I found out that the DeathAdder is pretty much the same on the right side, while my Mamba goes inwards there. That detail makes a lot of difference, at least for me, so I feel sort of bad for buying the Mamba when I'd be better off with a DA. Though the wireless feature of the Mamba is pretty convenient.
Looks like I'll have to wait even longer before I can add a Lachesis to my collection as I'll probably get a DA sometime soon as the Habu doesn't like most of my mousepads.

Travelling now, but I have quite the mousefest going on at home at the moment - getting the feel of the newer general-purpose Logi mice as well as some other gaming mice. I've had the Imperator, G9x and Orochi for a while but I'm not a particular fan of any of them - so I added the CM, Mionix and Roccat recently, and will probably round it off with the new Steelseries and maybe the QPAD. I actually only have 4 PCs/Macs at home which use a mouse, but generally speaking I like to buy a whole bunch of anything at once so that I can actually compare in a worthwhile way, then toss out what I don't like.

So far it's early days but as a clawer-when-available, I'm warming to the Spawn.

crApple: Mighty, Wireless, Magic (& the tackpad too)
CM: Spawn
Logi: G9x, Marathon, MX Revo, MX Perf
MS: Wireless Mobile 6K, Wireless Laser 8K
Mionix: 5K
Razer: Imperator, Orochi
Roccat: Kone+

& a few others not really worth mentioning, but which still see some use.

Whilst I look for something a little better, my current mouse is Microsoft Wireless 5000. To be honest, I haven't been totally happy with the performance, it's been a little flaky unless I put the receiver on the desk near it, and the buttons seem to grind together occasionally, but that could just be me getting carried away whilst gaming. It's also a little bigger than most, which took some getting used to.

Also have an Apple Mighty Mouse Wireless, which is terrible and is regularly disassembled to clean out the scroll ball thing. Considering what I paid for it, it's a little bit of a let-down. Also have a Microsoft Wireless Mobile 1000, which I take with me when I'm working elsewhere on laptops, which I can't fault.

After 20+ years of using ball mouse, i got Razer DA in 2009. I had it for 3 months. The shape didn't fit my hand, since I tend to lift the mouse often. More important DA had duble click problem. When I pushed the left mouse button once it register twice click.  I give it back, because I didn't accept quality control issue with mouse worth 60$. I went back to ball mouse.

This year I get new WMO 1.1a. It's shape is perfect for me. I can lift it as easly as ball mouse. Some complains about loud scroll, but I don't have problem with it. My scroll is just like supose to be. I'm very happy with that mouse. And the price is bargain.

After decades of mouse use, settling on a Logitech that fit my right hand beautifully, I realized that a right-handed person needs to use a mouse with the LEFT hand, saving the dominant hand for everything else that is more important.

How I wish that I had realized this when Reagan or the first Bush was president!

It is a long slow process to re-train the left hand to be the mouse hand, but oh so important. Maybe if you do not use the number pad on the right it is slightly less significant, but you need to try it.

And if you do it less than a couple of weeks, you haven't done it at all.

just an idea. check it out.

Post by: Brodie337 on Wed, 21 September 2011, 21:18:38
I'm not sure I agree with you on that one. If you're using the mouse with your right hand, what are you doing with your left hand that's "more important"?

The only thing I can think on is typing, in which case you immediately move both hands the the keyboard, so the dominant hand is a non issue.

I got tired of my Logitech MX620. I realized that it was much too heavy, and no amount of teflon on the feet was going to solve that problem.

I really really liked the scrolling on the MX620, and I definitely wanted to get another Logitech mouse with the same kind of scroll wheel. So, I went with the VX Nano ($35 from this seller (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Logitech-VX-NANO-Cordless-Laser-Mouse-Notebooks-/110748260812?pt=Mice&hash=item19c91c59cc) on eBay, but it was on sale for $32 when I got it).

I would prefer if it only took one AAA instead of two, and I do miss the thumb buttons, though I am close to being well adjusted to using the alternate left click buttons. Otherwise, I find that I like the smaller size and don't mind at all that the mouse is so small that it sits on my fingers instead of in my palm. I recommend it if you're looking for a small mouse.

Because I like the shape of the FK more than I like the rubbery sides of the AM.  They aren't a whole lot different, but the rubber coating on the FK feels more like plastic while the AM feels more like the rubber on the Xai if you have ever tried that mouse.

You are more of a palm grip then?  I am 100% fingertip since I have big hands and I have yet to notice the height of any mouse I have used lol.  So going from the AM to the FK was all about the sides.

Anyway, these days I'm using the Logitech M570 trackball mouse. It's a strange adjustment to regular mice to a trackball one, but I like the convenience of no longer having to move my hand in my considerably small amount of keyboard trays. It's very comfortable and great with the TKL keyboards I have. I would have considered the other trackball mice, but this was on sale on amazon.

I've been using my Microsoft WMO for about a year now; purchased on ebay from Takasta for like $25 shipped from China.

I still really love it!  I had been holding out for the Final Mouse 2015 ... then the SE ... and now I think I will wait until next year for the FM Ambi edition.

But I don't know - I don't really see a need to buy another mouse.  The WMO just works.

Got a Zowie EC2-A for about 6 months, great mouse.
I put puretrack mouse skatez on my zowie, they are a bit smoother than the original mouse skatez.

Using a Kensington Slimblade at the moment. I don't really play many games (mostly just Guild Wars 2), so that's not an issue and not having to move my arm all about is nice. Think I am going to stick with trackballs for awhile - didn't care much for the Logitech one I had though, I prefer to use my fingers over my thumb.

I use the Steelseries Sensei wireless mouse.
It is a little pricey but it seems to be the best wireless mouse.
Also, it fits perfectly to my medium sized hand!

I have been using the M65 Corsair mouse matched with the hard aluminium mouse pad for 2 years. Honestly it's the best mouse I've ever used and I don't expect to need a replacement for years. I love this mouse, from style and feel it is exactly what I want.

Wow, what a necro! 
I'm currently using a Logitech G502, upgraded from the G402 after the rubber scroll wheel had issues. The durability is greatly improved by the thick metal wheel, but due to its balancing it's very easy to move and the free scroll is incredible for navigating long texts. The shape is great for my hands, regular size but with long fingers. Easily reached macro keys for volume control/dpi adjust, and nice and weighty to suit my preference. Grippy thumb and pinky areas are great too, my only complaint is that they obviously attract more dirt, and there's this little spot on the right mouse button where dirt tends to accumulate, though it's easy to remove. Might give it a review if anyone is interested  :D

I would totally be interested in a review; I'm currently looking to replace a G500 with the G502.  What mousepad are you using with the G502?  What's its built-in auto-calibration like?

MX Master(race) FTW! Best mouse I've ever laid my hands on!
It has the best battery in the business and even though it doesn't hold as advertised I get about 3 and a half weeks of use on one charge. It also charges in about 3 hours and you can use it while charging. The sensor is 1.600 dpi which is more than enough and it works on glass. It features a second thumb scroll which is super helpful for professionals(I use it as a volume control for the system  :-[) Anyway just check any review on the internet and you'll sure get a better impression than I can come up with in this limited space.

The purists/gamers will bash it for being wireless :rolleyes: but if they like their hands tied to a rope, so be it!

Just check the sexiness!

I f**king LOVE my MX Master for day-to-day work/computering. It's a complete beast. Although my G602 gets better battery life (I've had it almost a year and have replaced the batteries once).

G700 since 2010, been through the ringer, some thumb buttons cut out intermittently.
G602 since 2013, really frustrated with the known middle click issue, I've had to remap the function to another button.
Slimblade since 2011, left hand home use only, to reduce stress on my right wrist.

I want to retire both mice but not sure what to buy.
MX Master is tempting but the non-removable battery... ugh.
Need a big mouse with a high arch and lengthy palm grip.

I would nominate the MX518 as the best mouse made, at least in recent memory.  I had acquired the MX518 in 2006 because someone owed me money and couldn't pay, so she gave me a Logitech speaker set (which my son still uses) and the mouse, they both ended up being far better than just getting the money paid back to me.

I've used the Logitech G402 for over a year now but after wrist pain, I decided to try out a couple ergonomic mice.  So as you can see, I'm currently using the Kensington Orbit Trackball and the ZeleSouris Ergonomic Vertical Mouse.  In terms of relief, the vertical mouse certainly helps the most, being extremely comfortable!  I noticed the trackball was somewhere in-between the vertical mouse and the G402 in terms of comfort.  After I use the trackball and vertical mouse for longer, I'll probably put up a review.

Not so much the scroll wheel, but I do have issues with the mouse sensor itself, even the tiniest bit of 'fluff' on the mouse pad and it goes ballistic. What happens when yours gets dirty? Does it just stop functioning?

Interesting, I have also experienced what you are reporting. It's rare, and I just blow off the sensor area and it's good again.

When the scroll sensor starts getting dirty, it will start reading the scroll movements as really twitchy and random. Makes it impossibly annoying to scroll down a page, or scroll in or out on your camera view in an MMO, for instance. Luckily it's just dust so a shot of aerosol CRC contact cleaner does the job perfectly, I don't even have to open up the mouse body.

Sure thing! A can of that stuff isn't very expensive, and it's easy to find and is indispensable IMO. I usually buy it at the Napa auto parts when it's on sale, and all the other generic auto parts stores carry it as well. Almost all hardware stores also usually carry it.

Edit: here's the exact stuff I buy: http://www.amazon.com/CRC-5103-Quick-Electronic-Cleaner/dp/B000BXOGNI (http://www.amazon.com/CRC-5103-Quick-Electronic-Cleaner/dp/B000BXOGNI)

Thanks mate :)

I'm from Australia btw, so my equivalent would probably be Bunnings (hardware store) :)

As a no-life-status cs:go player, my daily driver is my SS Rival.  Just preoredered the Ducky Secret.  The folks at OCN have me paranoid that it's too heavy (120g w/o cable) to be a good gaming mouse, but I have my fingers crossed that I'll like it.  If I don't like it for gaming I'll just bring it to work.

The Cm Storm Alcor. Had the Zowie FK, Asus Gladius and the Mionix Avior 7000 previously.
The alcor however is by far my favorite, light weight (86g), good sensor (Avago 3090) and comfortable shape.
Not to mention the incredible price of 30€ I got it for :)

I've been using the mx 510, mx518, g400, g400s, the form factor is just perfect.  This was further confirmed when I was shopping for a new mouse recently.  I bought the g502, it was just horrible, the form factor is the same, but the mouse is ruined by the new features.  The grip on it creates sweat.  The 1337 h4x0r sniper button is just where your thumb rests so you're always accidentally clicking it.  The scroll wheel is slippery as hell.  The buttons above and below the scroll wheel have been moved to a very awkward position (these buttons are great for home and end while scrolling GH and always going into posts you're watching and want to go straight to the end of the post to see the newest reply).  The look has also changed to a obnoxious gamery look where it looks the mouse is stitched together with a lot of parts which look and feel they could all fall apart any second.

I also tried the Zowie EC-2A.  It was OK.  Resembles the ms 3.0 which was awesome in the old day for cs.  But that's just it, the mouse is good for cs, because it's good for palm grip which is good for fps.  But claw/fingertip grip, which i use for Starcraft II, is not good on it.  The side buttons are also very bad.  Maybe the ambidextrous offerings from zowie are better for claw grip but they will still feel cheaper than the classic logitechs.  So I learned my lesson that the Logitech's mentioned above are classics.  I still want to try Logitech g9x, they might be good, but discontinued.

I might have used the DeathAdder longer if it wasn't for the horrendous driver software. The Zowie just does what it should in perfection, with DPI selection on the mouse itself.

Cyborg R.A.T 3. I've seen the higher end 5 and 7 models get some hate due to unreliability, but I've been using the 3 for almost 4 years now and it's still going strong.

I like to rest my palm on my mice so it's wide, flat surface is great and the thumb rest is really comfy. On the fly DPI can be useful in some games, especially when flying is involved - twitch adjustments and manoeuvres are easier with higher DPI (although i should probably get a HOTAS).

What's the size on the Zowie?  I tried the DA but it felt too small - probably mostly not tall enough for my palm grip.  The Steelseries Rival felt pretty solid but with all the problems I'm hearing on the 300 with the drivers, I've held off.

Mionix Castor, currently. Prefer it to the Naos 7000, but still not entirely satisfied. I haven't found a suitable replacement to my OG MX518 / G400 yet that I'm entirely happy with.

I have to say the g400s keeps the legacy the mx500, but I might try the new g502 since all reviews indicate it is a great successor of the g400s.

The MX500 shape is classic. Unfortunately I have little kid sized hands so for me, it's kind of like moving around a giant block of wood lol (which is why I prefer the shape of the MX300/G1/etc.). Nevertheless, it's still really comfortable and of course, Logitech's build quality can't be topped.

I'm still using my trusty MX518. Going strong for about 5 years now, and used an older MX518 before that. To me, it's pretty much the perfect mouse except for the fact that you can't turn off angle snapping, but it's not a huge issue since I generally don't play FPS games. I will probably try to get a G400 (updated MX518) without angle snapping when Overwatch comes out.

The main thing I love about the MX518/G400 design is actually the small button right above the mousewheel. I use it for common binds in games all the time and I find the position vastly more convenient than an extra side button. Sadly, I'm not aware of any modern mice with a similarly located button.

Buttons on the top in the front corners are an underrated mouse feature IMO, especially if you use fingertip grip and therefore lose all lateral control while moving your thumb to use side buttons, but even if you don't. Very underrated feature; shame it's seldom (if ever) found on a mouse that is decent in other regards.

Anyhow, personally, I usually use a CST L-Trac R2 trackball 99% of the time. On the very rare occasions that I feel like playing some FPS, I'll put it aside in favor of a Team Scorpion Zealot Jr. Occasionally, if I'm going somewhere with my laptop, I'll bring my Hades H8 Phorcys, since the additional buttons over the ZJR are convenient for document work and web browsing. Have a few other mice around the cabinets as well, but they don't really have roles for me at the moment.

For me, I like the Avior more. I've tried both and the right bump where your pinky and ring finger should go feels just off and I experienced my pinky sliding over my mat with the naos. But I am predisposed towards any mouse that mimics the intellimouse, like the Avior. That shape is the best shape ever invented for a mouse imho.

I tried the Naos 7000 and Castor side by side. Preferred the Castor due to being a bit smaller, lighter and more suited to lifting. The Castor is essentially a hybridization of certain aspects of the Naos and Avior.

The Naos has a much more pronounced finger rest for ring/pinky than the Castor, which is quite subtle in comparison.

Both have an excellent braided cable that is not stiff. Similar to removing the core from paracord. I find this a serious problem with most braided mice. Both mice share essentially the same sensor and hate the Artisan Raiden pads I recently got to replace my old Hien Kien's, but I anticipated this and also got Shidens which are fine.

Fixed my quote in my original post - that should have read that the Castor is a hybridization of the Avior and Naos  :p. The three lines all serve their purpose. To me the Castor is better for claw, fingertrip, and hybrid claw/fingertip grips, and decent at both low and high CPI. The Naos is better for palm grips and higher CPI as it's awkward to lift at lower CPI.

The Avior is just a great ambidex alternative to either, and it's size is in the middle of the other two.

I also like that they shifted the software for the Castor to be a simple .exe file without an installation. Easy to use and close, no need for software sitting active in the OS doing nothing. Roccat's software is appalling from the couple of mice that I have used, even though I found the Kone Pure Military a pretty decent mouse.

Tried the G502 for about a week. It's probably one of the best alternatives to the Mionix mice currently.

Pros:

-Superb sensor
-Great feel, suitable for many grip types and hand sizes

Cons:

-Stiff braided cable
-Restrictive/stiff rubberized cable guard
-Terrible mousewheel. Feels awkward to click and roll to the point of being cumbersome - greatly prefer the G402 / G602 mousewheel.

Logitech G602 on my desktop, but I'm in search of a replacement because I want something that's wired and still comfortable enough for me to palm.

Logitech M570 for my Raspberry Pi.

Logitech G303 for my work MBP (we play LoL during lunch sometimes and for whatever reason my G602 lags in-game, so much that it's basically unusable).

I kinda like Logitech a little. Too bad they don't have a wired G602, then I'd be set for life.

I've been using a Razer Taipan for over two years.  The best mouse I have ever used, ever.

Zowies are nice and I've been looking at the Ducky Secret lately, too.

zowie fk2 at the moment. i'll probably sell it soon, the shape just doesn't do it for me.

i'm waiting for new mouse feet to arrive, so that i can play around with a bunch of other mice. they all have absolutely terrible feet at the moment, and it makes them unusable for me :E

I'm just going to pick up another Rival tomorrow, and I'll use my new one at home and the old one with the slightly messed up scroll wheel at work.

I was playing some Dirty Bomb last night and I love how it handles and how grippy it is. If it were slightly larger it would be perfect. But for now, out of all the mice I own, I think it might be my favorite. I still love my G602, but I think i started to notice a tiny bit of lag last night. That could either be because the batteries are going to need to be replaced soon, or it could just be because I still don't entirely trust wireless so my brain is playing tricks on me. Either way, I don't really want to have to deal with it.

I have a few, my steelseries sensei cable started to crappy out, still works. My g602 is awesome, but it's fallen off my bed a few too many times and likes to double click.
Just replaced both with another Logitech: mx master. Too bad it's not called the topre master.

Currently, CoolerMaster Sentinel 3, simply the BEST mouse they have ever made  8) .

Perfect switches, nice surface finish on the casing and every setting you want can be kept on the mouse without needing any type of bloated, fat versions of Synapse installed at all.

Just be glad there is still a mouse manufacturer keeping it real, instead of another rubbish company releasing another "Gamer" style abortion, to the idiot newbs out there.

I've been exclusively on the Taipan for a while now, too. My hands are pretty big, so the length of the mouse serves me very well. It's also got just the right amount of buttons for my tastes, and while the Sensei feels the best in my hands, the Taipan is just the right combination of buttons and size for me.

Remember that their is NO such thing as a Razer or Logitech Factory situated within China, they ALL use specific manufacturers to make all their models.  Sometimes Logitech lucks out in picking the right factory and so will Razer but in the end, it comes down to specific design details that will either win new users or lose them.

Thus far for longevity, Logitech wins out right over Razer's current gear.  Maybe one day they (Razer) will actually make something that is worth keeping instead of dumping into Landfill sites around the globe  ;D .

just finished modding my Logitech G502.
new wheel, removed unnecessary parts adding weight on the inside, added new better feet to it, removed some of the sharp bad feet, de-braided the cable.

weighs a bit less now (just over 100g, I think 102 without cable?) and the wheel is actually useable. stock wheel is so harsh with its all metal build.

My mouse has removable weights that apparently weigh 4.5g. It doesn't sound like a lot, but it is noticeable. It all comes down to preference though, and if your are using a mouse like a CS pro, a lighter mouse will probably feel better as you whip it around the mouse mat.

It's like gaming switches..

If you focus all of your perceptions, and slowly try to feel out the difference between two objects..

Yes,  sure you can tell one switch is heavier, or one mice is heavier..

HOWEVER..  in PRACTICE,  whey you're typing out on 10fastfingers, or playing a game..  I find it hard to believe that 20 grams ontop of a mice will be within just-noticeable-difference range..



Same goes for SSDs... yea  currently all the Gen 6 stuff are objectively faster than gen 2.. 

But 9 times out of 10 during desktop use.. it's impossible to tell...

___ Why is that the case.. becauseeeeee  the RANDOM I/O is only about 5-10MB faster..

I just took all the weights out of my mouse, totalling ~20 grams at it was very noticeable. The best way to describe the feeling is just "kinda off". The main factor is that the weights are not central, so the COM moved forward in my hand. I'm not saying it affects me though, I can still use it fine and though I'm not gaming right now, I'm sure it would not affect my play in any noticeable fashion.
However, I'm not playing for Fnatic. If you play CS for a day job its probably more important to you what the mouse weight feels like. As with the SSDs example, in a normal desktop scenario there's no return on investment, but if you're running an important server then the improvement might be more relevant.

I must say the 98g number, or rather the focus on it, seems arbitrary. Its just a pattern that people have noticed, why aim for it if you don't know it will be more comfortable for you? If 100g feels sluggish, then sure, try shaving the 2g off and test again.

I have actually won tournaments with money and other fun prizes, so I'm practically pro! ;)

however, weight difference is around 20g from stock, so I'd say it's substantial. it's very easy to tell the difference.
static friction is greatly affected, but it's also important to have a good mousepad and good mouse feet for that.
just make it as good as you can without destroying anything, and all will be well!

static friction is one of the most important factors of being able to aim well in fast-paced games.

I used to use a lot lighter mice but I decided to go for something that would work better ergonomically.

So now I have a trackball, I would like to get some plug in buttons to go into the back. I'm thinking of programming a pair on one side and either a single or pair on the other side, but I am not sure what to programme them to do. I'm thinking Home and End buttons maybe, but the scroll wheel is so smooth, there isn't that much of a need for them really, but I do use them pretty often.

Has anybody else got programmable buttons? What do you use them for? What circuitry are you using? And how the hell do I programme one?

Thanks :)

it's surprising how quickly you can get used to new peripherals, even when it's your 'off-hand' using them. especially getting used to trackballs went really fast.

I just bought a Kensington Expert Mouse Wireless. I really like the black and red scheme more than the sparkly grey. Plus it would be pretty cool to be able to connect to my MBP with bluetooth and save a USB port for other things. Should be here tomorrow.

I had a wired one about 5 years ago and I loved it, but I didn't package it very well when I moved and it got destroyed. Just never got around to getting another one.

My Kensington Expert Mouse Wireless came in the mail yesterday and I'm loving it so far, except for the fact that TrackballWorks won't detect my mouse.   >:D

I've read that it won't work with bluetooth so I'm using the USB dongle. At first I was using a USB dock so I switched to a port on the back of my desktop instead. I've restarted my computer. Still no luck.

IDK.. g502 is king of the hill atm..  I gave mine away a while back, because i didn't game anymore, and I didn't have any other toys to give to my younger cousins.

I've not bought another one, since there hasn't been a reason to..

I honestly don't know! My hands are average (17.5~ cm from middle finger to palm) and I found the G400 and Deathadder to be monstrously large to an uncomfortable point.  As a guy, I wonder how girls manage with generally smaller hands.

In terms of the mice I've tried (getting a g302 soon, it was on a special) I rank them in this order:
1. Razer Diamondback 3G
2. Razer Abyssus (mirror edition)
3. RAT 3
4. Genius Maurus

I suspect that the steelseries kana v2 would either rank above or below the abyssus. I'm hoping I like the G302 enough to place it above the razer abyssus lol!

Been using g502, but I'm getting fed up with it.  There's apparently a defect where after a while the middle mouse button stops working.  I've had 2 in a row (first one I thought it was me, so bought another) fail, and am getting ready to do an RMA replacement.  So back to the G700s.  At work I'm using the g9x, since I don't need as many keys.

I use a regular Apple Magic Trackpad for my main system (iMac) - not the ridiculous Magic Trackpad 2 that costs $130 and you can't replace the battery on. Got it on eBay for like $40 after the Trackpad 2 went on sale and have found it quite lovely for my purposes. You really can't beat OS X's multi-gesture support for managing things like multiple virtual desktops and windows and the like.

For my gaming rig I use a good old Logitech M500 I've had for years. I have two of them, one that's not being use from when I had more computers than I knew what to do with. Probably not the most elegant mouse or the most responsive/whatever but I don't seem to die very often playing the Witcher 3 so it must do a pretty good job.

tp4tissue if you remove the weights, the G100S also gets very light.
i'll quote someone from another forum: "you can remove the 14/15gram weight from the g100s quite easily taking the weight from 83 grams to 69"

like the WMO and abyssus, it has no side-buttons. shape is a bit weird, though.

That is effin' brilliant! I'm bookmarking that for future reference. Luckily this mouse still has some pretty tight tolerances and except for the scroll wheel, it feels solid. I haven't decided if i want to crack into it yet. Maybe when i finally get some GPL-100 or GPL-205 lube in my possession i'll take it apart and try and get it into shape.

You need 5 switches for the IMO,

The forward 2 are already omron, but they're not the GOOD omron, they're the D2FC 7N MS,  which is the same as D2FC vanilla.

You want to get the good D2F-01F from mouser/digikey..

Really takes the mouse to a whole'nother lvl..


Lube can go either way,  I wouldn't say it's essential, But I think what I may do in the near future is add a spring to the wheel to tighten it up.

I have a G502, and I absolutely hate it. I get the twitching on any DPI (though, oddly, mine's better at the highest DPI). There are way too many buttons, my right click is spotty, the cord is fraying, the skates are in abysmal shape, and the stupid panel that hides the weights falls off all the time. -8/10, would not purchase again.

I'd like something with the basic features of an Intellimouse (5 buttons, optical, good tracking) in a better casing. I was looking at the Ducky Secret and the Zowie EC-1A, but I don't know which I'd prefer, and the Zowie has a 1-2 month lead time on Amazon! Microcenter has the FK1/2, but I don't know.

Anyway, recommendations welcome.

Ideally, when you move your mouse in a straight line physically the sensor should read a straight line but due to electronics this is not so. It is in fact some sort of a pattern across a line, that line may be straight or slightly curved even. So the trajectory can be off in terms of linearity and in terms of degrees. So aside from a good sensor, algorithms need to make sense of what input is noise and what is actual intended input. When you crank up DPI, you are basically magnifying the signal and thus the noise increases. Like zooming in on an wave in an audio file. This increases jitter, because it is more difficult to distill the overall intended pattern against the noise.

Basically it is the SUPER VERSION of the venerable Intellimouse xplorer 3.0,  which is well regarded..

The switches are all Omron Japan,  incidentally, the ORIGINAL ball mouse intellimouse had all Omron Japan

The sensor is a modern sensor, --basically-- the same thing as g303/502..

And it has an alps rotary switch for the wheel just like the original ball Intellimouse

It weighs 120g for some reason, but that is apparently Heavy for  SOME mouse folks..

G502 does not jitter on those settings at all for me, on various mousepads. QPad UC-50 v2 Pro, Steelseries QcK Heavy, Artisan Hayate Otsu, Fnatic Gear Focus D1, fUnc F30.R... or my custom glass mousepad, which is satin frosted glass.

is anyone using g502 here? do you guys feel like the mouse twitches sometimes?

that list says it jitters over 2000dpi.
Seriously?  :'( I should look in to this. Maybe I'm stuck with random mice brands like Sentey

Edit - Hmmm.. maybe jittery is a good thing?

higher dpi naturally causes jitter..

But the important thing is, the pixart processes all dpi natively...
I do my websurfing and other causal computer use at 6,000-7,200 dpi.. I've never noticed a difference when I switch down to 3,200-1,600 dpi for other stuff..

jitter is not a good thing :p
it means it's picking up things that aren't what you're actually trying to do. some people just aren't sensitive to jitter due to not needing pixel precision.
My mouse jitters every so often when the CPU is maxed out but I never knew that a mouse can jitter on its own. I guess I have a decent sensor on mine.

Ideally, when you move your mouse in a straight line physically the sensor should read a straight line but due to electronics this is not so. It is in fact some sort of a pattern across a line, that line may be straight or slightly curved even. So the trajectory can be off in terms of linearity and in terms of degrees. So aside from a good sensor, algorithms need to make sense of what input is noise and what is actual intended input. When you crank up DPI, you are basically magnifying the signal and thus the noise increases. Like zooming in on an wave in an audio file. This increases jitter, because it is more difficult to distill the overall intended pattern against the noise.
I'm guessing this is why some hardware companies have upgraded to 32bit ARM processors

Contemplating the Ducky Secret myself... Hrrrrmmmm......
Dooooo ittttt. Every time I use it, I like it more.

What's so great about it?




Basically it is the SUPER VERSION of the venerable Intellimouse xplorer 3.0,  which is well regarded..

The switches are all Omron Japan,  incidentally, the ORIGINAL ball mouse intellimouse had all Omron Japan

The sensor is a modern sensor, --basically-- the same thing as g303/502..

And it has an alps rotary switch for the wheel just like the original ball Intellimouse

It weighs 120g for some reason, but that is apparently Heavy for  SOME mouse folks..
And to add a little bit more to this: it's shaped very nicely and feels great. The mouse's shell is made of PBT, so it won't slicken or shine in the way that ABS mice will. It's meant to be open and accessible, so if you need to change a switch or something, getting inside is simple. They don't mention this anywhere, but the cable is also extremely slick and doesn't catch or drag on a desk edge. It uses no computer software. All the adjustments are performed via buttons on the mouse. It also has zero hardware acceleration. It's a very simple mouse with features for people who care more about "how it's built" than how many buttons it has and how many macros you can map to it.

ruined? their MX500 - MX518 - G400 - etc line was incredibly popular.
the only complaint i've seen about the G400s (relative to the G400) is that is has higher delay. afaik this has never been confirmed though.

btw @tp4tissue the sensor in the ducky is not the same as the sensor in the G303 / G502. there are actually plenty of complaints about the 3310 sensor that's in the Secret.
most companies have also done a terrible job at implementing the sensor. (cheap-asses.)

but Ducky seems to be one of the few companies that (apparently) implemented the sensor really well.
i certainly like their approach of PBT, no software, nice switches and no braided cable. and you can easily open the mouse. :-)

Acceleration is horrible. Try move 1-3 pixels. Horrible. Not precise enough for design work. Try moving to a button across the other end of the screen. You will either move over it or under it. The sensor is not good enough in this mouse for me. I don't really know what's wrong with it, but for me it is.

it's unfortunate that so many people claim that the 3310 is the best on the market, because it is not. :/
not that it really matters, because it's certainly good enough for pro gaming. but it's just a bit hyped up. :-)
the 3310 has its strengths, but also weaknesses. it's more of a side-grade to most sensors, rather than an upgrade.
it looks like the 3360 (or 3366 in logitech mice) is the strongest one out right now. but some purists still cling to their MLT04 mice. :-P

i seem to be one of very few who still prefers (non-braided) rubber cables.
it's really just the feel and sound of that cable dragging over my cloth deskpad that drives me nuts. it gives me extra friction that way, as well.
but if i didn't have a cloth pad then maybe i would've preferred braided as well. :-)

btw, did you maybe mean the G500s?
i can assure you that the G400 has no inherent acceleration.
the G500s however uses a laser sensor and inherently has high "variance", which is often perceived as acceleration.

What mouses feature the 3360 out of the top of your head? I'm curious.

No, I definitely meant the g400s. Sorry, but in my opinion that mouse sucks for the tracking. Shape is great though as are the buttons.

I can imagine about the braided cable.. I like it, others hate it. But my desk is really smooth, so I don't feel friction when moving my mouse around.

I just bought a Mionix Castor and an Razer Diamondback.

At first I was thinking the Diamondback was going to be just something to add to my collection, but I ended up liking it more. In the past I've always preferred ergonomic mice, but for whatever reason the shape just fits. This would be my ideal mouse if it had an optical sensor. I have no clue why gaming companies even bother with laser sensors any more when optical is generally more reliable. I have noticed the weird liftoff issue, but at 1600 DPI it's not very noticeable unless I'm actually looking for it, and at 800 even less so, so I have no issues with it.

The Castor gets a lot of praise form what I've read and seen. I would like the shape, except I don't like the slope on the thumb part. If it was less sloped then it would be a really comfy mouse, but it just feels weird in my opinion.

I used to use a diamondback 3g I had real trouble finding good mice after that. I just wish they'd stayed true to what the diamondback was, a good, affordable, optical sensor mouse.  I'm very happy with the logitech g302 I purchased a week ago though.

uhh, not many at this moment. i think the Steelseries Rival 700 is out, or should be out soon. and there's the FinalMouse Scream mouse that i think should also be out soon.
logitech has the G303, G502 and now the new Wireless/Wired G900 all using the 3366.
the 3366 is just Logitech their version of the sensor, but i have no clue what exactly is different about their sensor compared to stock 3360.

logitech had an exclusive contract with pixart so nobody else could use the sensor for a year, which is why they were the only company that used the sensor.
a short while ago this exclusivity ended, so i think (and hope) that we'll get an explosion of mice with this sensor this year. :-)

but just fyi, the way a sensor is implemented is just as important as the sensor itself. meaning that even though two mice use the same sensor, they might not actually track the same..
for example FinalMouse got a lot of flak for their poor implementation of the 3310, so you might want to wait for reviews on their new 3360 mouse before you go for it :-P

edit: apparently there's also the Corsair M65 Pro RGB that uses a 336x

Ya I love my G303 as well. I just needed something that was longer so when I felt like resting more of my hand on the mouse I could.

It seems like gaming companies, mainly Razer, are so focused on marketing stuff (ridiculously high DPI, "hydrophobic" coating, RGB, etc) that they don't care much about the actual quality.

Logitech maintains their quality, at least in their mice I own, which is why they are my favorite brand, but they have scrapped their old legends (G9x, MX518/G400) in favor of newer, flashier mice, and it just seems like none of them fit me right.

I still wanna try Zowie because I love the idea of a minimalist design and no software, but I don't think any of theirs would really fit me either. I'd try the FK, but I think it would be too wide in the palm (like my Sensei).

I like some of Razer's stuff (they make great cloth pads, and I'm liking the Diamondback so far (although I wish it was optical)), but it seems like they're so focused on marketing stuff (ridiculously high DPI, "hydrophobic" coating, RGB, etc) that they don't even really care about quality. The new Mamba had sensor issues, and then they went and threw the same sensor in the Diamondback anyways. I've owned 3 DA's in the last few years and all of them developed click issues within a few months of owning them.

That's why I'm a huge Logitech fan. It seems like they've always kept the highest standards for quality and customer support. Unfortunately, in my never-ending quest for my ideal mouse, I can't really stick with them.

I soldered in my last d2f 01f, m0re in the mail..

Just to compare left click vs right click..

The d2f is higher than the d2fc, so the click i closer, and it's tighter against the shell.

it *can* be used wired too, and gain a slight boost in performance, but it isn't much (1-2 ms iirc better response time overall) because it performs so damn well wireless.

having no cable drag is pretty fantastic too.

Can you compare it to some other mouse? I'm really curious. The sweet spot still is the Avior 7000 for me personally.

Best mouse ever. Seriously, far better than Zowie's build quality and zero frills.

I've got G502 and G303 to compare it to, but have had Avior 7000 as well.
the Avior is a well-built mouse, but the G900 isn't far off, just has a diff construction which might confuse some people (buttons are quite loose, due to shell design meant to give you the least resistance possible).

if you're talking about performance, G900 feels snappier and better even in wireless mode. :p

the butt is a bit heavy though, likely due to battery being placed there.
I can totally see why some people have already removed battery and use it wired only. should be an amazing mouse like that.
if only it was available at 1/2 of price and wired :|

Makes me curious... For me, the 3310 is best EVAAH. But people have already pointed out to me that the 3310 is not necessarily great and has smoothing.

Yeah, the price is really steep on the G900. Perhaps it really IS worth it. I couldn't find ONE negative review of this mouse, not even on hardforum or OC.

I don't think there is anything really negative to say about it... what's "bad" to me, is really just personal preference things.
the measurable performance and performance feel when using it is just Da Bes, simply put.
I'm still debating getting one but it is a LOT for a mouse, even if it might be ~the ultimate~. I just don't care for the wireless part so it feels dumb to pay extra for it.

It's even more expensive than a KUL. As a matter of fact, this mouse is the Topre under the mice.

I feel more like this G900 is what the G502 should've been. Just give me this damm mouse with a cable and I'm sooo happy.

G502 performance-wise is actually better than wireless G900, but not by much.
I think the G502 is a good mouse with unfortunately some major flaws for me personally (shape being #1), and feet shape.
otherwise I'd probably keep using it.

Well, it looks like my DA Black is finally dying (no more drag and drop - it releases and picks up randomly, but single clicks still work).  If I unplug and re plug it in, it will work for a couple seconds then go right back.  I thought it may be that I don't use Razers software, so I tried loading that up, but I can't even drag the sliders within the program.  Plugged in a 99 cent wireless mouse that I picked up as an add-on to have for my htpc and it works fine. 

Any recommendations for a $20 to $30 mouse?  I was looking at the MX Anywhere 2, but it looks a touch small.  I also like the shape of the M705.  I don't need wireless, just thought it would be a nice change of pace.  Most of my gaming is done with a controller, and when I do game with a mouse it is Diablo or Starcraft.  I really like have thumb buttons for page foward/back in chrome or when going through photos. 

Thanks.

Gaming. It was fine for elite dangerous which is mostly a flight sim but FPS games were less fun. I still use the m570 for some games like Civ 5 and elite dangerous.

For most gaming/general use: Logitech G602
For Twitch/fast gaming: Tek Syndicate Standard issue (on occasion i put my Deathadder Chroma into service also)
For Long periods of work: M570 for comfort

Well, it looks like my DA Black is finally dying (no more drag and drop - it releases and picks up randomly, but single clicks still work).  If I unplug and re plug it in, it will work for a couple seconds then go right back.  I thought it may be that I don't use Razers software, so I tried loading that up, but I can't even drag the sliders within the program.  Plugged in a 99 cent wireless mouse that I picked up as an add-on to have for my htpc and it works fine. 

you can try and fix it, but you'd have to open the mouse and open up the switch..
it's really not hard to do, but maybe a little bit tedious. and it requires you to remove all 3 feet, so it's risky if you don't have a spare set.

I actually have a bag of spare switces that I picked up when I replaced all the switches in my Anker ergo mouse.  I will give it a go.

ah, awesome :-)

you could also just open the switch and then mess with the leaf a bit, but that's the tedious bit.
if you think soldering in a new one is less of a hassle then that would probably be an even better fix :-)

would be a waste to stop using that DA if it's only the switch that's failing. it's a common problem with a relatively easy fix.
anyway, hopefully that fixes it, because afaik the DA:BE is one of those great discontinued mice

That Ducky Secret doesn't look bad but given the side-by-side with the Razer, unless it's really tall, it's probably too small for me.  I've clung to my Logitech G5 since most mice just feel smaller.  Tried the Razer DA with no luck so was looking at a Zowie EC1-A or Steelseries Rival 300.  Both seem large enough.  Just that both seem to have other problems right now.

That Ducky Secret doesn't look bad but given the side-by-side with the Razer, unless it's really tall, it's probably too small for me.  I've clung to my Logitech G5 since most mice just feel smaller.  Tried the Razer DA with no luck so was looking at a Zowie EC1-A or Steelseries Rival 300.  Both seem large enough.  Just that both seem to have other problems right now.

The Logitech G5 is an awesome mouse!

The G900 is way better and I still have about four G5's in storage.  Trust me the G900 is just unbelievably brilliant, compared to all the older models ever released by Logitech.

Is it ambidextrous?  I was looking around at it and it looks it from Logitech's site.  I'm wanting to go as vertical as possible in a gaming mouse these days.  Easier on the forearm, though foam rolling the hell out of it has helped.  Still, I'd prefer to go a bit more ergonomic if I can.

Also, dat price.  I'm not huge on wireless mice so it would honestly remain plugged in 100% of the time.  That or I'd never plug it in until it died or put up some kind of annoying reminder to be recharged.  $150 seems like overkill for a wired mouse.

G900 performs better than most wired mice I've used, and I'm a real mouse perfectionist, more so than keyboards. :p
it *can* be used wired too, and gain a slight boost in performance, but it isn't much (1-2 ms iirc better response time overall) because it performs so damn well wireless.

having no cable drag is pretty fantastic too.

Can you compare it to some other mouse? I'm really curious. The sweet spot still is the Avior 7000 for me personally.

I've got G502 and G303 to compare it to, but have had Avior 7000 as well.
the Avior is a well-built mouse, but the G900 isn't far off, just has a diff construction which might confuse some people (buttons are quite loose, due to shell design meant to give you the least resistance possible).

if you're talking about performance, G900 feels snappier and better even in wireless mode. :p

the butt is a bit heavy though, likely due to battery being placed there.
I can totally see why some people have already removed battery and use it wired only. should be an amazing mouse like that.
if only it was available at 1/2 of price and wired :|

PREACH!

Another MX Master Mouse user here. Only complaint really is that the gesture support isn't compatible with Linux (I use Fedora as a daily driver both for work and home use) though I find the thumb based switch kind of hard to use anyway, so I don't suspect I'm missing out on much anyway.

I also use a Death Adder 2013, though I suspect that I'll replace it in the near future as well with something that's either 1) supported by libratbag or 2) is driverless and dpi adjustments can be made at the mouse level via a switch.

I ditched my Diamondback and started using my G303 again. Just can't get over them light (but still solid) clicks, the weight, and that sensor. I like the shape a little more too I think. It's more raised so my hand doesn't cramp up.

Knowing me I'll probably switch again in a month or so.

Poor child, the G302/303 is a disaster with it's current shape.  If they (Logitech) made a G3 style of shape, watch millions jump off the retail shelves throughout the world.

Most are tiny handed people which are still waiting for their mouse soul-mate, which has yet to surface. 

For the rest of us, we have found the most perfect mouse yet made by Logitech and that is the G900.

i mean, there was also a lot of cry for a new G9-shaped mouse, but it looked like logitech considered that to be too niche to do a re-release for.
but i would definitely get a G1-like shape with a (wireless) 3366, preferably no side-buttons and a normal scroll wheel (not that dumb wheel on the G900).

I actually love the G303 shape. I like how it gets skinny near the front. I have average size hands and it's just about the perfect shape for my grip for most games. The only thing is, it doesn't work for my palm grip at all, so I have to swap it out when I'm playing online FPS's.

Xtrfy XG-M2
Didn't know the brand when I bought it, I was in a gamestop and needed a mouse because the middle mouse click wasn't working any more.
Was an impulse buy (I'm terrible in that regard.)
Didn't expect to like it too much but I really do, it fits nicely in my hand and fits my grip (fingertip grip) - I don't much care for the lights and stuff but it's not obnoxious or anything so I've learned not to be bothered by it.
I found a general guide to setting up your mouse input settings and stuff (believe it was this one: http://eliteownage.com/mouseguide.html ) and I must say it's been a real pleasant experience so far.
What remains to be seen is how well it lasts.

Through my lan center and competitive fps days it was hard to beat the tried and true Logitech MX518 for years.

From there I went to the G400, simple and effective, but a little lackluster.  Next up in my drawer waiting for the G400 to conk out is the Proteus G502.

I typically don't like overly complicated mice with a lot of buttons outside of digital editing software, no huge benefit for gaming.

There is one mouse tempting me to experiment outside of the Logitech brand, and that is the Mionix Castor.

For you G900 users, can you leave the mouse charging overnight when your computer is off (via one of my usb 3s)? And how often have you been needing to charge it, anyway?

Since we are here already, still worth the purchase after ~months use? No new problems?

Still waiting for a sale, like someone to put one up on reddit or something. Maybe Black Friday is my best option... Though, it's likely one night I'll be up at 3 am and impulse buy it like I do with most of my stuff.

Logitech G502 is reliable but the scroll wheel kind of sucks cause it's all metal (it works really well, just harsh to use).
if you can get it for <$60 that is. it's built really well. sorta comfortable.

otherwise Mionix Castor is really well-built too IME. not quite as nice as G502 but good.

Ya it's basically all dependent on shape. They're all good quality mouses.

Just a couple things I'll point out. Keep in mind, these are just opinions:

G502:
- Pretty heavy even without weights.
- Scrolls wheel feels clunky and puts a lot of weight at the front of the mouse, especially if you don't use weights to balance it out.
- Too skinny for palm grip.
- Left button is concave, right button is convex. Feels really awkward.
- Sensor and click feel are the best I've ever felt (same with G303).

Castor:
- Nice and light.
- Good width in the rear, but I wish it had a higher arch for palm grip.
- A little too wide in the front.
- More of a claw grip mouse i.m.o, but I could see using it for palm also depending on if you like the shape.

Out of the 16 gaming mouses that I have, the Avior is not one of them, so I can't give my opinion on it.

CM Storm Recon; It's not too flashy even with the LEDs (Which are color changeable via a program created by Cooler Master), and it's got multiple programmable macros which admittedly have gone to waste in my part, as I just use them as media shortcuts (For Spotify and such) but they can be utilized to do so much more than what I use them for. The only gripe I've got about this one is the scroll wheel got squeaky after a couple weeks of use, I've had it for almost a year now (Since the 14th of July in 2015) and it's still just as good as the day I got it. Highly recommend if you don't want something to heavy or too large... It's ambidextrous too so if you'd rather have something you can place to your left it's great. I think the price of these actually went up a bit - Probably less demand so less are being made. It was $30 at the time but I think they go for like $80 now... Probably not worth that price tag but that's anyone's choice.

Daily is a G400 which replaced a MX1000. Wireless ones I carry with my laptop, M510 which replaced my VX Revolution. Used a Mad Catz 9 for a while and didn't like it in the least. If anything I tried harder to like it as it was expensive and had many option and panels but I just couldn't find a config I liked. Went back to Logitech with the G400 and couldn't be happier. If it's like my other Logitechs, which all still work btw, I expect it will be a long time before I go looking for another.

After using my new Mionix Castor for about a week it has become one of my favorite mice I've owned (2nd only to the amazing Boomslang, it's shape is perfect for my hand)

Not as comfortable as my Nascita or Naos, but much more responsive and easier to control. The clicks are very responsive and the sensor is fantastic.

The software isn't built-in, which is what I guess Mionix is doing now to avoid printing cd's which makes sense, but once downloaded it works great and has a lot of nice features. I wish it had an unlockable scroll wheel like Logitech mice, but otherwise it is a perfect no-nonsense mouse. Mionix products have always been good to me, so I expect this to be of the same quality and I should get a good 3-4 years out of this guy.

Logitech G303. I just fell in love with the shape XD

Post by: tp4tissue on Tue, 28 June 2016, 18:24:02
I just got another G303 after giving my last one away ..

It was on sale i couldn't resist..

Anyway,

The feet i think has been made thinner since my last one,  if I press a little harder, it feels scratchy against the pad..

Lens rattle is still there..  but it's not as bad,  took it apart, easy fix. .

I think overall... the shape requires too much twisting of the hand to meet flush with the shape..

This is probably the biggest issue..

Other mice which have more butt, can accommodate a more sideways grip style,  but this one is so flat in the middle that there's really no other way to grab it.

I recently found a setting in my Debians to reverse mouse acceleration. WTF.. so it didn't fix it completely but for now I'm 80% jitter free. I could rock the 8k cpi/dpi that my Sentey Rev. mouse is capable of if I was using my right hand to mouse. I'm not that accurate with my left hand so I keep the cpi/dpi at 3.2k for now.

I think it's pretty obvious that reversing mouse acceleration via software is not the best way to 'fix' those mouse jitters but it's a decent quick fix of sorts. Saving for the G900.. *whistles*

Firm mouse tushie is all I care about. But seriously, I use both hands to mouse (totally happened by accident :-[ while cleaning) and the g900 gots it where it counts in that regard. Wireless would make it easy to switch hit no? Teach me the ways of the tushie :cool:

You know what, I have been thinking about getting this Elecom Nendo Orime mouse (black version or the white version you have in here) for ages. The N50 is a compromise in terms of price, and I even suspect the conceptual design from N50 might originate from the Elecom Nendo Orime.
Very nice!  :thumb:

Right now using a DXT Mouse that I received as a review sample. It's actually not that bad. Been using it since last week, and it's a fine work mouse. Lacks some features (back/forward buttons), and I would change some positioning, but, having it use the same DPI settings I have for my Logitech mouse, it's a nice break for the normal mouses I have.

Impulse bought MX Master. Was under the impression it was basically an upgraded MX Performance (my last.. er.. current mouse). Couldn't get used to it. I use the back and forward buttons on the side frequently and on the master it's shoved in an awkward spot where I have to literally lift my had off the mouse to reach them. And they're stacked. Such a pain in the ass placement. Might as well get rid of them. Tried remapping my uses for those buttons on the side scroll wheel and it was a little too difficult to control. That's when it worked because it didn't for me ~50% of the time.

The shape of the mouse is bigger, too. I claw/palm hybried (closer to claw) and the Master has a more pronounced hump, I guess? The part that touches your palm if you lay you hand on the mouse. It forced me to palm the mouse, and apparently palming makes my hand cramp after 45 minutes-an hour use. Maybe my hands are too small. I don't know. Definitely didn't fit well, even after giving it 12 days as a daily driver.

Too bad because some of the features I really enjoyed. Wireless, had the hyper scroll (which is a must for me), and some kind of feature where it turns to hyper if you scroll after spinning it with a certain amount of force that you can adjust. Really cool. And the battery needed to be charged only once. I realize that's not great for many, but if you can give me a little over a week without needing to charge then that's good enough for me. Sensor seemed improved and the switching between devices (bluetooth or using the usb receiver) worked flawlessly and so easy to do. Don't need a dongle for the bluetooth either!

Think I'm just going to jump on the G900 once I get my refund back. Been fighting it but there doesn't seem to be another option unless I just buy another Performance MX. Ideally I would like an upgrade. There's some things I think the mouse could improve on and those improvements seem to be out there on some of the newer mice...

I've basically just been using my Razer Naga Chroma recently. Tilt scroll is nice. Shape is my favorite, hands down. Buttons are awesome for WoW (although I wish they made a version with only like two side buttons for everything else).

I bought a Finalmouse Classic Ergo 2016 a few days ago and it's probably my new second favorite mouse. If it weren't for WoW, and if I still played CS as much as I used to, it would probably be my favorite. Feels a lot like the Logitech G400, but noticeably lighter. For now it will probably go in my mouse drawer with the rest of my collection.

My G900 came in the mail about an hour ago. Was in the middle of playing some BF so I plugged in and had my best game ever. Was getting multi kills and lasting longer than 1 minute without dying. Finished 13-11 (with like 20 revives). I don't think you realize how bad I am at this game. lol

Feels great in the hand. Shape is nice. Looking at it up close it doesn't look as "gamer" as it seems in the pictures. I think it's because I turned off the logo LED, and maybe because my mousepad is black and my room is dark right now. I know there was some concern about the lmb and rmb being straight and not curved as it goes down. I like it a lot for my grip style. Side mouse buttons are easily accessible, unlike with the MX Master. Still trying to figure out if I want buttons on the right side. Can't use the G7 one because when I lift the mouse a little I always click it. I feel like G6 could be useful, though. I'm wondering if it's a bad idea to have that one area exposed if I don't put a button on g7 (the upper right)?

The only problem I'm having is the middle mouse button is a little high (or far?) to click. A stiff click,too. More force is necessary than I think it should need. And I kind of want to snap off those side pieces on the usb cable. It's a nice, flexible, braided, usb and I like to keep one connected to my pc all the time (for my phone and controller). The side parts get in the way... But I realize it's purpose if I ever use the mouse as wired. Although the cable seems sort of short if you're right handed and keep your case on the left side.

I'm very interested in the battery life and I'm going to mess around with the software in a second. All in all, I'm liking it an hour in.

Also, it's a lot lighter than I'm used to because I was using the Performance (uses a AA battery). Going to need some time to get used to the weight. Anyone know if it's possible to toggle the LEDs without going into the software? Like a button on the mouse or something.


---

You know what, on the buttons you can just unassign default and then profiles if you want to use them. Duh. So definitely not leaving G7 off. Then I have G6 as a secondary middle click for most programs. And the cable has an adapter to plug another usb on it, as sort of an extension. Liking this mouse more.

Off the top of my head, filling every need I have. It's just about battery life now.

Yep, loving the G900 purchase. I've been giving my desktop some heavy usage the past few days so the battery is down to 15% after a full charge (effectively 3-4 days use if I let it inevitably run out tomorrow). That's not bad, though. I'm talking about ~13 hours a day on this stupid computer the past few days. I think on a normal week it should easily last the entire week for me. Hand hasn't cramped once, btw. Also got used to the middle mouse click.

Literally the only two problems I've had have been the the Logitech software not recognizing the program I'm in sometimes. All I need to do is make another window active and then go back in. A bit of a pain, but it doesn't happen that often. Enough that I notice... And I have heavy fingers and sometimes right click unintentionally. In my hand: If the buttons on the mouse were switches, the lmb would be clears, rmb would be reds, and the middle is some **** like super black.

It charges quickly btw. Posted this, put it on a usb cable while I went to rest take a nap and an hour later the charge went from about 14% to 60%.

I'm going to buy a new mouse this weekend. I'm either going to go for a Ducky Secret or find a Logitech g900.

I did like my Razer Mamba I used to use though, I'm using a RAT5 right now which I hate. I think I use a palm grip, which makes sense for the longer mouse of the Mamba I guess. Kind of makes me think that I'm not going to like using the Secret for very long.

As I said in my thread the G900 just does not fit my hand. The g502 on the other hand is very good but not perfect. I have had many mice and the G502 is the best out of all of them for me. It is really the same mouse but right handed. Don't lose half the buttons with a dummy plug. Plus of course wireless but I prefer wired. Not the latency, i just like it better. I do in fact like how heavy it is. Since I am a huge man. For a average size person i figure they would find it on the heavy side. My hand must weigh 15 pounds so i do not even notice it. Some say the G900 is bigger but I find it much too small. Well it is the hump I like. The truth is these are all cheap Chinese junk. Someone please make a $500 mouse that is really worth it in the USA or Europe and I will be your first customer!

Just personally I always prefer ergonomic right handed for a righty. As I said I personally have no weight issue either besides my own weight lol. The way the feet are it glides very smooth on my mouse rug. I hardly have to move it to go across Three 32" displays. The shape is just natural to me. The 500 series has years of development behind it. The 900 is new. Plus Ambi mice just cramp me. Since my wrist is on the pad and I am barely pushing it around with my fingers I would bet the fatigue is comparable to a trackball. I do not game much but all the buttons are great for coding macros shortcuts Etc. The G900 you really lose half the buttons to make it usable. Hence the dummy plug. Plus you cannot easily replace the battery. I honestly think it is short of the $150 asking price. This just me though I know many prefer it and YMMV.

I went with the g502. The only thing I bought at Insomnia last weekend. I really really like it, I had to go with something with a thumb rest which I've gotten used to, plus the texture on the side of it feels great. The mouse wheel feels really high which took a bit of getting used to, but I love being able to change between free rolling mouse wheel and normal mode. I don't mind the wire because my mouse movement is limited to about six inches either way anyway.

I'm actually getting used to changing modes and DPI as well.

I really really like it, I had to go with something with a thumb rest which I've gotten used to, plus the texture on the side of it feels great. The mouse wheel feels really high which took a bit of getting used to, but I love being able to change between free rolling mouse wheel and normal mode. I don't mind the wire because my mouse movement is limited to about six inches either way anyway.

I'm actually getting used to changing modes and DPI as well.

Protip, when the rubber sides get dirty or dusty, dip a soft bristle toothbrush in a bit of isopropyl and that will clean it right up

Just got an M570 recently due to wrist issues.  Anyone have any tips for use?  I've heard they crap out after about a year or so due to double-clicking issues with the left click, is this true?  Either way, for ~$20 it's got the best form factor for me.  Last trackball I used was the old Logitech one from the 90's (... used in the 90's).

I recently got a Logitech g303 and Razer Deathadder chroma to retire my logitech g600, which has now become the travel mouse  :p

After trying each, I've made the Deathadder my primary machine's mouse and the g303 my secondary machine's mouse.

That is true, I just prefer heavier mice (used all of the 7g weights in my G9 when I was still using it.

I believe the G402 is a lot lighter than the 502 so if the weight bothers you then probably look at that one? Unsure what sensor it has though. Ergonomics are very subjective, so although G502 fits my hand really well I can see why you would have issues with it. Nothing as bad as the silly RAT mice though.

I'm using 400 dpi and 1600 dpi, but it jitters on both.

Maybe it just doesn't like ur pad..

I have a Razer Naga that I use pretty much exclusively when I'm playing wow, and a Razer Mamba for shooters or RPGs or what have you.

I've been using a CST LaserTrac for about 6 months and absolutely love it for general computing or playing strategy games or what have you. I got a Logitech M570 today to lug around with me when I visit friends or my parents and I'm pretty impressed with it so far. I'm only just really starting to get into input devices outside of keyboards so my Naga is about 5 years old, my Mamba is about 2 years old. The dive into trackballs was almost as bad as buying my first 40% keyboard. I can't get enough.

That's the main reason I don't ever use mine. It also adds a lot of weight and I like light mice.

I actually really like the weighty metal scroll wheel, I must have gorilla hands. It does help maintaining momentum while freewheel scrolling too. If I recall, when Logitech designed the G900 after the G502, they thinned out the wheel significantly and it resulted in a much lighter wheel feel while still retaining the solid metal feel. If only it wasn't so bloody expensive  :(

it's fine when freescrolling but I didn't ever use that feature :p
when doing really quick scrolls, like in gaming (I use it to jump for example, so you can time the hop right after by 'spamming' multiple +jump commands) it gets uncomfortable since you have to have a bit looser grip on the entire thing, relaxed fingers etc.

ugh, i hate those scroll wheels. i can imagine the "casual user" could love them, but for me they are just loud and noisy, heavy, wobbly, unpleasant notches, unpleasant M3..
i mean, i never used the free-scroll function, and never used the rocking buttons (left and right from the wheel).
the wheels i like most are the simple mechanical encoders, unfortunately most companies cheap out on them and they still end up feeling mediocre.

anyway, i'm back at using the G400 again. i can't say i even like the shape that much, but i'm just so used to it..! :D
i still don't like it for gaming all that much, but i'm gaming less and less these days anyway. the shape cramps my thumb if i have to lift the mouse up a lot

Free-scrollers are required for those looking through giant Excel forms and Access databases.  Makes the whole experience far quicker and more comfortable than with the traditional notchy-styled mouse wheels.

The G900 is worth it's weight in Gold, I go through far more data than with the older Dell garbage which really made it a chore.

The G900 scroller is the first decent mouse-wheel released onto the public in a very long time (quiet, smooth and solid) and I'm keeping mine till it breaks or wears out.

G403 just showed up today (G-Pro will be here on Saturday).

I love this thing. Great shape, great weight (especially coming from the Rival 700). Sensor is top notch, and button clicks are pure sexy. While you can finger tip it (since it's light enough), the shape really just wants you to claw it (which it's great at). My hands are way too big to palm it, but I imagine if you have smaller hands it'd palm like a champ.

Right now using a DXT Mouse that I received as a review sample. It's actually not that bad. Been using it since last week, and it's a fine work mouse. Lacks some features (back/forward buttons), and I would change some positioning, but, having it use the same DPI settings I have for my Logitech mouse, it's a nice break for the normal mouses I have.

(Attachment Link)

I too use a DXT vertical mouse (DXT Vertical Mouse 2) and am loving it!  After having used the Evoulent Vertical Mouse 4 for eight years, I have found it to be a natural progression.  I am able to frag baddies in Cube 2: Sauerbraten with little trouble.  On day one I was more precise than with the Evoulent.

The only trouble with the DXT is if you have a desk that is too small that lets the wire hang off the edge.  Sometimes I would get stuck (only a problem in games when your DPI is maxed).

I will only use vertical mice, trackpoints, trackpads, and trackballs -- never normal-orientation mice.  Just using the IIgs's mouse for a few minutes reminded me just how much wrist pain I am avoiding.

Flat mice may feel fine (in hand)..  but they all cause wrist problems given extensive use..


There's just no way around crossing the radius and ulna (bones),   when using a flat mouse..


The accounts for the majority of gaming pains..


When these bones crossed, they pinch nerves/muscle and ligaments between them,  eventually , serious pain.

Just received a Kensington Wireless Expert Mouse today.
It's the first trackball that I own.

So far the only problem is its scroll wheel. For me that is not the problem of smoothness, from another post I think Kensington removed the magnet for scroll wheel in this wireless model, the problem is that the scroll wheel wiggles a little bit. So when you press your finger on it, not really scrolling or anything, and then raise your finger again, it will make a noise when the scroll wheel gets back to its original position. This noise is a bit annoying because it's as loud or even louder than the sound of key press of a buckling spring keyboard.

A good scroll ring with well engineered bearings and housing should stay stable when pressed. If it is designed like this way, at least make the wiggle cushioned so there'll not be noises like that.

G900; best mouse I've ever used. Tracking is flawless, latency is imperceptible. I don't know how they managed to do it wireless, but I'm glad they did.

I use a fingertip grip with low DPI and I tend to lift the mouse often. A common problem I have is if the side of the mouse is too vertical, I have to grip hard to lift and my ring finger gets irritated quickly. The G900 has ever so gently sloped sides with no sharp edges which, coupled with its light weight, makes it effortless to lift. The surface tuning feature keeps the liftoff distance extremely low which also helps when lifting the mouse.

I use a piece of **** razer deathadder chroma that crashes my macbook everytime i plug it in...

I use a DA for almost 4 years without any problems. Just replace it with a DA elite. Not much improvement except the PBT plastic.

I use the Zelesouris Ergonomic Vertical Mouse. Couldn't live without it, it's great.

Anyone else an ergonomic mouse user?

Zowie FK1 has been my go to for the last few years.  I am looking to go back to Logitech with some of their new releases and see if they are any good however.  Some of their top end sensors seem to be quite nice without too many frills.

Poor soul, probably has made the mistake of linking the current Ducky Mouse models to Razer's current abortion, known as the "Elite"  :)) .

A few of the newbs keep focusing upon that false narrative, makes them feel happy about buying a Razer product, until they actually see their mistake close up....

My Castor just arrived today.

I always thought my Mionix was the best feeling mouse in my hand, but it felt designed for a palm grip, and before the Naos I was mainly a claw gripper. The Castor is perfect for claw grip for me. Although I have seen other opinions that it doesn't suit the claw grip, it definitely works amazingly for me. I don't know how they made the mouse feel this good.

Even though I don't think the Castor is bad, I still thing their Avior is iconic. And now that they DISCONTINUED the Avior, discontinued all of their products actually except for the Naos QC... I'm bailing on Mionix.

I'm now considering the G403, which is basically Avior/Intellimouse shape a bit tilted to the right with the PWM3366.

what do you think of zowie mice?

currently using a g502, I really like this, especially the scroll... the weight needed some time

i came from using a roccat kone xtd and i still miss that shape on my hand.

is there a zowie equivalent to roccat kone xtd? (i know they are still available) but in my country/city the price is tpp steep (2x the price i paid for 2-3 years ago) and im not so sure about warranty claims because stocks are limited.

This:
Speaking of Zowie, I have a problem with them. I've owned a couple of their ambidextrous mice, and the "no-bs" approach appeals to me, but…

All they do is copy classic shell designs (from Microsoft and Logitech), throw generic (although well-regarded) electronics in the mix, and overcharge for this. Actually, I wouldn't mind—I don't need most gimmicks anyway—if their customer service and quality control matched the price. Sadly, that's not the case in practice. Their current recall on models with Omron switches smells like TrulyErgonomic-level bull****, and it's not even the first time they've done this either… remember the 2013 recall, caused by coating issues? Basically, they've managed to **** up an equivalent of $10 OEM mice and sell it for about five times as much. In addition, the reports on quality of their customer service aren't clearly positive either.
So, yeah…
i came from using a roccat kone xtd and i still miss that shape on my hand.
The new Kone EMP is apparently superb.

My Logitech M500 just broke down after about 3-4 year usage, so now I'm stuck with my wireless logitech mouse which is literally squeaking in my hand. It's bad :D

I would really appreciate an advice on a mouse that does not require a running software app (that saves it's RGB colors and modes on a mouse), maybe has a RGB and is around 50$ (please consider the fact that I'm from Eastern Europe, we don't have all the mice that US has, only the most popular and they are more expensive :D )

Right now I am considering Corsair Harpoon RGB - Is it going to be a waste of money?

The Corsair Harpoon has Corsair logo with RGB lighting on i. That's about it. RGB is not that important, but would be nice to have it :)

I guess you like them coz otherwise you won't make / mod them.

Anyway, we have them at the office too. But I really hate them, they don't feel comfortable at all in my hand.

But I guess YMMV and if you are RSI-prone or already have it, it is a great relief to be able to have such mice.

So the reason Prophylaxis has become much larger a societal pursuit , is directly due to our increasing life-span..

Since you are a relatively young person today,  you could imagine possibly adding even a few years to your current projected span..


Hands and hand health is overlooked..  many many old people have reduced function in their hands and  as far as living in the human world..  Hand capability is second only to sight..




So you take your wrist..   Now turn it counter-clockwise as hard as you can,  ANY mouse that you could be using  is the --light version-- of doing that to your hand..   It's not good for it, and only a matter of time before that hand becomes semi-crippled.. 

---This is especially accelerated by the only increased computer use as we move ahead..

Yeah I can see that, you're probably right. But that still doesn't take away the fact that I really don't like the position of those mice, it just feels weird. But perhaps it just takes getting used to and it's much better after that.

Many of life's situations are hindered by our psychological protection mechanism.


For example, If I just tell someone that they're wasting their time with the Brand New $400 Aluminum flat keyboard they just bought..    Against all of the physical characteristics or potential benefits of the ergonomic keyboard,  THAT person has to face the reality to MENTALLY abandon his most recent , Large purchase ..

$400 is alot of money to some people, and , to accept that uncorrectable reality that this was a waste of their efforts is tremendously stressful..


Because this threat to their mental stability Far exceeds the immediate improvement of their -Hand health- which is a problem either unforeseen or projected to occur much later..   They will arguably CORRECTLY choose to protect their own psychological balance.. rather than rationally re-evaluate their keyboard Mistake..



So, I say to you iLLucionist, as someone who can understand and at least be open on the subject of psychological-self-balming-delusions..     PERHAPS you are amidst of this common psychosis,   which from the third person perspective is only impeding you from moving more --quickly-- onto a superior Mousing and keyboard platform..



Because --iLLuscionist-- recently acquired a G403,  he can not simply Accept that it may be for naught,  therefore he has to emphasize the negative weight of his short and potentially inadequate memory of previous vertical mouse trials..

Thereby protecting his current mental stability, without having to face the reality of having made a sub-optimal decision.



Accepting change and mistakes quickly is for the mentally strong..  and if we treat this as a skill.. You could see how this would be tremendously efficient and powerful in competition to other human adversaries you'd face in the future. !!


And so my explanation here is 2 different gifts to you..  The mouse, and the path to Cognitive dominance. //Friend.

You refer to two different psychological processes. One is cognitive dissonance, which is this "psychological protection mechanism". Second, this psychological balance of having to admin you are "wrong" refers to ego threat, which invokes self-presentation goals (Leary et al.).

I'm not against those mice. They may be great. I'm only pointing out that those that I've tried simply sucked. Which may be related to the shape and/or sensor in those. I don't know which they supply at my office but I can guarantee you it's cheap junk. Recently I'm supplied with a <= 250 nits TN panel with PWM at the office, so I can't imagine they have proper mice in the light of that information.

Also, what is "ergonomically correct" for you, still may not work. Think of all those "ergonomic chair". Or worse, those "recommended ergonomical work positions" (like 90 degrees elbow, look slightly down on screen, etc.). My point is, everybody's body is slightly different and thus the "average" rule may not apply.

That said, I don't know if I'd like a proper vertical mouse. Never had a proper one.

Likewise, I prefer "horizontal mice" but if you were to give me one from Trust or some other crap brand, I'd probably hate regular mice as well.

I have got a new device at work, this MX Master in beige / white color. I have used before for a few years a G500, which I also have at home. At work I also use sometimes the pen of my Wacom tablet as mouse, which works more or less good, and an Evoluent vertical mouse (but maybe only 2-3 days per month).

For the first day using it I really have to adapt its shape to my hand. But this will be better over time for sure. The scroll wheel has its own life! I have not played with any settings so far. The clearance of the plastics is not so OK everywhere, I think it can be seen in the pictures.

So true, the mouse to which all others is compared too, even now during 2017.

I bought a whole box of them and they will last till I'm dead and buried.  Trouble is that the WMO is loved with a whole lot of other mice models made and sold today.

I don't have an all time fave mouse because it depends upon the time and my mood, when I post anything here on GH Central.

Probably has a bad capacitor making some noise. Unfortunately, it was bad enough that I just couldn't use it anymore.

The G9x was a fantastic mouse in its day but it is definitely dated. I think some of the PWM3366 mice have it beat for sure. A lot of Logitech mice still have the free scroll wheel but you no longer need to flip the mouse over and hit a button on the bottom to switch back and forth between free and detent modes. I never used that feature on the G9x because it just isn't convenient to constantly flip the mouse over when you need to switch scroll wheel modes.

It is a different grip tho, That is more "Palm style" while I am more "Claw" grip.

I have looked high and low, the G9x in it's form factor is one of a kind. The DPI is fine.

Nothing is dated about the mouse. Just like nothing is dated about a IBM Model F and are still sought after.

G9x had horrific membrane switches under all but main buttons. The braided cable had certain problems—with braiding. The sensor sucked (and I don't mean the overplayed "acceleration" but rather jitter at resolution above ca. 2000 dpi). Some whined.

You said:

That's a (a) hasty generalization (it's not monotone decline over time), (b) survivorship bias…

The G9x has fairly objective shortcomings, such as the membrane switches that are very stiff, have limited lifespan and cannot be easily replaced (and it case of the side buttons, they hard to use without grips and wiggly with them). Or the sensor jitters even at approximately half its max. resolution. Those are things, that have generally improved in mice over the last few years. And they're typically measurable.

From hands on experience with the mouse,

 I am just letting you know my G9x is going 7 years strong with NO issues, no sensor issues at all. The grip has some wear but they are removable and replaced with other grips.

Got it when I was 20, I am 27 now. Love it, I got 10 in my closet. I am set for life, no regrets.

After more than ten years using the same incredible Logitech MX518, I saw the Logitech G602 and immediately knew it would be my replacement. It is a truly incredible mouse, wireless, or not. I have never had an issue with input lag, and I change the batteries one every two months. I never turn it off. I'm dumb. 

I use an Extended Glorious Modular mousepad, and wrist rest. Highly, highly recommended. I also went back to the MX518 a few weeks ago and can confirm it still works perfectly. For me, I started to peel some of the covering off, and in my OCD nature, it became unbearable to play with any longer.

I wasn't bashing the G9x or anything. As I said, I had one and it was a great mouse but I think it's been superseded by some better mice now. Obviously there are no mice that have exactly the same shape. The same could be said about any other mouse. If you prefer its shape, then the G9x is the mouse for you.

The G9x has fairly objective shortcomings, such as the membrane switches that are very stiff, have limited lifespan and cannot be easily replaced (and it case of the side buttons, they hard to use without grips and wiggly with them). Or the sensor jitters even at approximately half its max. resolution. Those are things, that have generally improved in mice over the last few years. And they're typically measurable.

I also had issues with the grips. They never quite fit right and I always had to jam shims under them to get the side buttons to line up and work properly. The outer coating started peeling off a couple months after using it and from what I understand that's fairly common with this mouse.

I'm a big fan of the G900. It fits my fingertip grip and it is very light. Its gently sloped sides make it easy to lift and reposition which I tend to do a lot. After calibrating, its liftoff distance is <1mm. Combined with a PMW3366 sensor, all mechanical switches and near perfect wireless, it's pretty much the perfect mouse for me.

Just out of curiosity, I might pull out my G9x to do a direct comparison. Maybe try to capture the sound of the cap whine.

It's called BACKUP sunshine, look it up.

At work here we have over 276 heavy duty vehicles all built superbly by Caterpillar, that can carry anywhere between 200 to 400 tons each.

With all of these vehicles thousands of parts are provided at our local warehouse and each truck needs a minimum of 4 backup parts.  So according to your idiot logic, no one needs extra parts due to using anything, out here in a 24 hour a day operation it's vital and no downtime is allowed under any circumstance.

That is why I have several numbers of the same model, used as back up whether it be keyboards or mice.

It's about consistency for a long period of time. Just in case SOMETHING DID HAPPEN, I got multiple spares, for multiple computers.

I don't want to search for a mouse anymore.

 I searched for years for the perfect mouse in my early 20s, I found one and was satisfied (still satisfied 7 years later)

Every single time someone thinks a new mouse dethroned the G9x I bought it, tried it, returned it. The G9x is like a glove that fits just right.

Some people buy 10 black shirts and the same jeans because it's easier to have a consist thing that works every day.

Steve jobs did this with his clothing so does Obama. Consistency. Consistency. Consistency. Consistency.

A quote from jobs

"The funny thing with decisions is that when you make them, you actually expend mental energy. If you make too many decisions in too short a time frame, you significantly reduce your decision-making ability." This is known as decision fatigue.

You may just be really used to its shape after using it for seven years. Each time I've tried a new mouse, it's always kind of clumsy and uncomfortable at first until I get used to it. It takes a couple weeks of use for the brain to acclimate to the new shape (with a couple notable exceptions in my case).

I find the same thing happens in the headphone hobby, and even in keyboards to some extent. Hence the whole "you have to use the HHKB for a couple of weeks to truly appreciate it" adage.

On a related note, Jobs' consistent (and stupid) diet also significantly contributed to his health condition—and death.

That's actually somewhat relevant here, because lack of variance in motions and grips puts load and strain on the same body parts, which may result in certain overuse-related injuries in the long term.

I will have to give the HHKB a serious try one of these days.

No bungee = ULTRA drag feels like ****

Metal arm bungee still slightly too much drag feeling

Rubber armed Bungee = Feels like a personal assistant holding the cord giving you just enough slack with no drag

Iv'e tried mice with pure rubber cables as well and have reviewed several from the Deathadder to the Steelseries rival etc and iv'e found (personally) be it braided or rubber makes little difference.  It still exhibits excessive drag without a bungee and still unacceptable drag with a traditional bungee the rubberized bungee is the only solution I have found to my own comfort levels.  Without it I would likely still insist on wireless or bust.

The Xtrfy XG-M2 I'm using atm has a braided cable and I hate it.
It drags against the edge of the mouse pad and sometimes would even get stuck. I had to add tape to the edge of the mousepad for it not to do it.
I'll consider stripping it.
Title: Re: What mice do you use?
Post by: Auk on Fri, 07 July 2017, 08:08:03
I haven't stripped the braid off my mouse cables yet, but it is definitely an annoyance when it catches on the edge of the pad so I did consider it. The only thing that stopped me was a plan to sell my mouse for something different.

One alternative solution I had was to run a USB extension to near the desk, mounted on a small metal hook 2' - 3' above. With the mouse cable plugged into that it can leave enough slack floating to stop it catching. Ungainly looking but it works pretty well.

If you've got room for a bungee they can work really well, but each small improvement you make can add up to a much more pleasant experience overall.

I had made a post which did not attract any interest above this currently. I see many of you are hardcore. Using Linux with 2 button ball mice Etc. I am relegated to the Microsoft platform but I consider myself no less hardcore. A gaming moust just happens to have he button count I can make use of. Plus many have sensors with enough DPI to glide across 3 32" displays without any acceleration. I hardly game but I do not enjoy acceleration or moving the windows slider above 5.

I saw someone much earlier in this thread said in bold colors that the G903 is the best Etc. It is not the best if it does not work for you from an ergonomic standpoint. That should be first and foremost ones criteria for choosing their rodent friend. That is probably why many of you use small, classic mice and trackballs/points. For me I find no better than the G502. Which incidentally is mentioned in this thread much more than the G903, G90 and G700 combined. It does every single thing the G903 does with the same sensor. Albeit with a cord which is a tossup. Neither are corded or cordless perfect IMO. I do not get hung up though. It glides smoothly. I actually appreciate the weight and place the weight in the G903. Feels to me hollow and cheap. the only plus with the G502 was them not being concerned with weight. the wheel will spin longer due to the higher mass creating more inertia.

My issue with Logitech's cordless mice is the height due to the batter making them uncomfortable for me. plus I prefer dedicated right hand. You are most likely going to lose usage of Two buttons on the G903 with either hand. Hence the dummy caps. I use a low claw grip but low enough to be bothered by the "bump". I know many of you would not even delve into a mouse this advanced but really any pointing device whatsoever is subjective. The G502 fit's me best from the current crop. with the G402 being to low. The MX518 was honestly better for me or even The G9x. I personally feel either way that Logitech is at the tp of the current game as far as manufacturers go, Plus their CS is stellar.  I have many mice and Trackballs but this is what I am using right now. It is not perfect but it shall suffice. I do not feel you can say the G903 is better being virtually the same thing hardware wise but that again is subjective. It depends what fits your hand, and offers the features you wish for. they are basically Two different approaches to something very similar. I can completely see why some may prefer one or the other but I could not say one is clearly "better" than the other since from a hardware standpoint they offer exactly the same thing. Heavy Vs. lite Etc then comes into play which is all subjective. there are many choices from many manufacturers both old and vintage. Ultimately this will boil down to what appeals to you.

while we were on the topic I wonder what happened to that large metal trackpad that I think was made by Logitech. I will go check if they still have it. some at the time stated it could cause RSI but like a mouse cannot. I however, have had no trouble in many years.

I find the hump in the MX master too big as well, go figure. It is a very nice business oriented mouse however. You may just get more out of a gaming mouse but once again that is completely subjective.  am surprised this thread is so many pages. Since this is really a personal item we are speaking of and will strictly depend on each individual. That is evidenced by how many different devices you can find mentioned herein.

Something else interesting. I am not bashing the 903, I wish I could use it. People are misinformed that the 903 has better buttons. It does however have a different configuration. Therefore, if you tap it very fast and jump off it they chatter. The 502 absolutely does not do this. So much for better buttons. Since I can see those of you that play FPS doing such a thing often. If you are right handed I would highly recommend the 502 but it is up to each individual. It is not really heavier because it has lower friction. Plus cordless is not even allowed in tournament play. So that should tell you something about wireless regardless of what they say. It does in fact glitch, lag periodically

Rom, I apologize if this too is long as well. I have nothing against you really I am sure others share your sentiment. On the other hand I dot have to, nor did I read 20 pages of "What is your favorite mouse". I suppose there are bigger Geeks than myself If you can fathom. I mean I do wear a pen protector!.

I want to apologize for a slight error on my part because I try to be honest. The "chattering" I was speaking of above can occur when ones hands are sweaty pretty much only. However the 502 will exhibit this as well, albeit to a lesser degree. It has to do with the "framed" buttons Vs. "frameless". The open type will naturally exhibit this more because the buttons are in fact rubbing on the sides. That is not a bad thing though, it is just as fast.

I do not get about the weight however. I use no weights in the 502. It has a cord of course and the Grams people quote are without the cord. When I use a 903, I do so exclusively with the cord attached. I also add the 10G weight. In this scenario the 03 is actually a drop heavier! Considering I will only use the cord and that cord has the large plastic piece even without the 10g weight the savings is 8g at best. So I really do not see an argument to be made about weight. Since no one can really notice 8g. However if you use it wireless there is like a 30G difference so that in fact is a big deal. You cannot compete wirelessly so the truth is it is not a bg difference. Since if you do not compete and play cassualy it really should not matter anyways IMO.

There are of course other arguments to be made about both. I have several of both. I just have my preference and everyone is entitled to theirs. I will argue that one is not superior. It depends on the feel and your needs. TBH, I would take a G9x or MX518 over either I am limiting this to what one can obtain new now.

I am not intending to just spit out random garbage here. I hope this helps someone. As simply judging by price is not correct in this case. Simply put the wireless technology is more expensive and that is all. The 903 does not have some super special parts or abilities increasing it's cost. Simply the Wireless setup and perhaps a bit on the magnets.

I am using the 903 right now. It is not bad, I just prefer the 502. Subjective. Like what kind of undies you like. I wonder if there is a unanimously better mouse though? Everyone has a different opinion of what the best rodent is. That is to be expected though. I will say I want as many buttons as possible and not gaming. On the 903 with both sides it is difficult not to hit them. It is difficult not to hit a wrong button on the 502 too to be fair. I just cannot do a trackball due to the screen real estate here. Currently at 8400DPI and just right.

I wondered if that 16,000DPI sensor is better than the 12,000DPI. Or if the former has any issues? Since it seems the 12,000 is still preferred. I do not know who makes them, Pixart or whatever. I am not talking about the amount of DPI but the overall accuracy of the sensor.

Not to worry, Sensor quality and Max DPI are independent. There are many mice with incredible sensors that don't go above 2400, partially because many pros don't and won't ever go above 1600 but still need to have the most accurate sensors.

No, I was asking because I have read the 3367 has some issues. It also has some important the 3366 lacks. Of course DPI that high is not a selling point but the quality and features. The 3366 is darn near perfect even though it lacks a few new features and tracking technology in the 3367. There must be a reason Logitech did not switch to the 3367. Even though he 3367 would seem like an evolution it may not be. 12k DPI is still relevant of course so Logitech has o reason to switch is they do not feel it is superior.  I like the new features, namely 1 DPI increments. I am not sure at this point if it is as good as the 3366. You cannot believe everything you read on the internet LoL. There were some bad sensors that had prediction Etc. The 3366 was the best sensor thus far. I do not know about the 3367. I guess I will just wait a while until the actual story emerges.

I can actually use the 903 fine. Even with buttons on each side. To me is just feels like a cheaper mouse than the 1/3rd priced 502. The 903 is not that light either. Lighter than the 502, certainly. For FPS I would forget either one. They should be sited to MMO however. I hardly game and at that only play NFS and GTA using a controller. In fact I would say the 502 is akin to the Xbox One Elite controller, and the 903 to the standard. Of course YMMV. This, just like keyboards is subjective on many levels.

On OCN people are removing he battery in he 903 to save weight. I am not that extreme and it is already much lighter than what I usually use(502).  Logitech sort of have an unwritten warranty of lifetime. They just send you a new one, no questions asked. Unless you keep doing it they know something is up. they never even want the old unit. Harmony they can lock. Regardless, I would rather have the warranty than remove the battery. Some people are much more hardcore than myself I admit.  Especially that it is said the fet on the 903 wear quickly. They do feel different so perhaps glad for their great warranty. Logitech is a nice company for CS and I really like some of their products,. Both the 02 and 903 are fine depending on which one prefers. As for harmony, of course URC is better, just as there may be better mice. You know, I think I said that here like 8 years ago HAHA.

Ah, my apologies. When I read the first part asking if the 16K sensor would potentially be better than the 12K, I thought you were asking purely from a DPI perspective, as I hadn't seen the sensors in question named yet.

yuppie. I have a few around here and they are nice. Newer is not always better. Mice have gotten huge. The 903 is a top end mouse indeed but it just does not jive with my hand like the 502 does. It is lighter but the feet are not as good so it has more friction anyways. Either one is plenty good. Whatever fits your hand is most important. It seems Logitechs right handers have always been best for me, with each release. anyways, The 502 is functionally the 903 sans wireless.

I am glad to see Max weight too! I actually prefer a heavier mouse as far as newer ones go.

903 is not bad. I could use the 903 or 502 fine. Right handed the 502 is probably better if you are going to put the buttons on both sides of the 903. Plus I use it wired only. So not sure he extra cost is worth it. At first the 903 felt larger than the 502 but I am pretty sure the 502 is larger. I could remove the battery and be pretty happy. Many people did that. Makes for a very light high end mouse. You do not get the features on the 403. Many like it for fps as it is so light.

I use the G900 right-handed and I prefer it very much over the G502. I believe the G900 is a few grams lighter than the G903 since it doesn't have the inductive charging thing built in.
Title: Re: What mice do you use?
Post by: typo on Sat, 16 September 2017, 15:17:11
It is. 107g Vs. 110g but that is marginal really. Unfortunately I do not have room for their mouse pad. Wireless might change my mind. Unplugging it is going to leave it plugged in half he time anyways. However I really do find the buttons on the 502 better located only if using both sides on the g903. That is difficult. Overall it is a nicer mouse than the 502 but if you need that many buttons right handed the 502 might be better. It is in fact smaller where I originally thought it was larger. It is a nice size. I thought I preferred heavier but with he cord attached the 903 is heavy enough. I have a device so there is no drag on the cord it does not get hung up and is fine. Wireless might be a different ballgame but I am not going to use it half and half. It is a shame I don't have room but I really would not use that much surface anyways. My mouse rug is like 7x10. Even with my display real estate t 8400 dpi I barely move it. It is actually great that it goes to 12000. Many say who would use that. Anyways I think I will just keep using the 903 wired because it is in fact a better mouse. The quality just feels higher. Some may balk at Logitech but Mice are their forte. They know how to build a mouse. You can mess with Razer, Steel Series, Corsair Etc. but at the end of the day I think the majority of people are using Logitech if they use a mouse. Their new trackball looks nice but it will be too slow. For trackballs I would go elsewhere but not Mice. Although the 518 is the most popular track ball.

I run at about 900 dpi. I like to have more precise aiming in games.

Not sure why you'd have to use it half-and-half. Battery life is 32 hours. Just plug it in at the end of each day and you're good for another full day or three. I've never had to use mine in wired mode.

Well, because I really do not sleep. It happens with old age but even when I was 50 or so I hardly slept. Besides, I just have too many responsibilities. No sleep can be very bad but Doc told me if I am not fatigued or passing out in the afternoon it is okay. I do not set alarm. Enough about me, I use 8,400 dpi because I am not gaming but coding and making wireframe models. I am going across 3 32" displays. I am concerned about injury. This way I do not move the mouse more than a couple of inches in any direction. The precision of this at this dpi is a breakthrough for people like me. last generation went that high but not with the precision. I can land on a pixel and pinpoint it with no adjustment but it takes a lot of practice to get there You have to take into account my display real estate. If I had a single 24" display I would probably be around 1,000 or less. On the other hand some gamers use as low as 20 dpi in fps so I am told. The thing is with the precision this offers if you are practiced at it dpi does not really matter. The lower dpi at this point is due to the user not this mouse. Maybe in my mind but I find the 903 even more precise than the 502. Perhaps that is just due to the sensor location. Also it is optical much thanks and not laser. As I am sure you know laser is bad news for accuracy. Logitech are at the top of their game and many agree any of their mice are the best in their category.  Of course plenty of people will favor other brands as well. I am trying to figure out if the pixart 4467 is as precise as the 4466. Apparently not or I am sure Logitech would have used it. I do not need 16,000 dpi anyways. I have set 1,800, 3,200, 4,800, 5,200, 8,400. The 502 fits me better but the weight and quality of the 903 seem to have won me over. I have used it exclusively for 3 weeks now. It really is better than the 502 but it all depends what fits an individual. The 502 fits me a little better but I am willing to make that sacrifice in favor of the 903. I am sure it would help if I did not have buttons on both sides but I have use for them. At first the right buttons were difficult but I got the hang of it.

I would like to know how I use Gshift with 21 buttons? I do not see that in the software and no mention made of it. That is strange as I would think it is one more selling point.

Well I'm posting from my phone and it was easier to take a photo of the screen at the time.

As far as the gshift goes, once you assign the gshift button then you go back to the configuration screen and there is a toggle for gshift when you toggle it then you can assign gshift functions.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170921/9180f99bebdd0a048b8bcb0bace149a4.gif)

To access the gshift functions you hold whatever button you assigned as the gshift button then press whatever other mouse button is assigned the secondary commands.

Thank you so much! I totally missed the toggle! Honestly, IMO the G903 or 502 are the only game in town. This just adds to it. I might as well unplug the cable already and see how I like it. I do not have room for the inductive charging pad.

Well, the 903 won me over go figure. It is abetter mouse than the 502 after all imo. I have now realized my mouse rug which is not for hardcore usage has a lot of drag to it. Put it on laminate and it glides much better than the 502. Well, of course it is much lighter. I may take out the battery since I only use it corded. I would use it wireless for sure if I had room for their charging mat. It is pretty large. I guess for gaming that is what they like. I prefer the smallest mouse pad possible and the mouse rug looks great. The drag has now become an issue with a much lighter rodent.
Title: Re: What mice do you use?

Should be no problem to use wireless even without the charging mat. You can get a solid 30+ hours on a charge which is obviously much more than you need for a day of use. Pop it on the cable to charge at the end of the day and you'll be ready for tomorrow. Most modern PCs will even let it charge via USB when the PC is powered off.

Inductive charging uses electromagnets. Wireless devices like cell phones use radio waves, which are non-ionizing. Neither of these pose any danger of causing cancer.

The G900 can be reconfigured for left handed operation. The buttons can be replaced with blanks and are on both sides of the mouse. You just blank out the side you don't want the buttons on. Pretty nifty.

Any symmetrical mouse can be used left-handed, but the resulting wrist posture sucks, because it's rather flat.

There are only a few proper left-handed mice: the deathadder/naga (by razer though) and a bunch of ergonomic ones (there are common compromises in quality or sensing though)—I've mentioned a few (DXT, Contour, Handshoe) earlier in this or the other thread.

I have a Logitech MX Revolution! Bought it in 2009, and it's still going well! Quite worn now, the thumbwheel is worn almost smooth, and the rubbery coating on the right hand side is almost worn off, but it's great. Doesn't hurt my hand after 8 hours of use!

Is looking a bit sorry for itself now though, so I bought a new battery and new skid pads for it, and plan to take it home soon and strip it down, clean out 8 years of gunk from it and service it, ready for another 8 years of use...

The USB reciever is not great though, it looses connection if you move it which isn't a huge issue, but alightly annoying as you can't buy them anymore! I did look at the current crop of Revolution mice, but they don't quite seem to do it for me, the thumb wheel is great, as working in Excel alot I have it mapped to copy, paste and paste special values, the top search button mapped to bring up outlook, browser forward to bring up firefox and the browser back button left as is. The newer ones also seem to not have the hybrid scroll, which I use alot on massive spreadsheets!

Will post some pictures of it during the refurb if anyone wants?

The new ones do still come with hybrid scrolling (only really on the MX Master series, the gaming ones have both notched and notchless scrolling but you cannot make them switch between modes automatically depending on the force of the scroll, it's a discrete switch to change modes).

At home, I've been using the Mionix Castor for about a year. Before that, I used the Mionix Naos 7000 briefly, but the finger grooves drove me crazy, so I gave it to my brother. Buying both of these was an attempt to replace my Logitech G500 (it still works; it's just not comfortable, and it doesn't feel as smooth now that I've used the Mionix mice [maybe it's the difference between laser and optical?]).

However, I am still not completely satisfied with the Castor's shape, so I've ordered a Zowie EC1-B and SteelSeries Rival 310 in hopes that one of them will have a more comfortable shape (they also have slightly better sensors apparently). They have yet to be shipped though.

At work, I can't stand using a mouse for some reason, so I switch between Logitech M570 and CST L-Trac trackballs.

At work, I can't stand using a mouse for some reason, so I switch between Logitech M570 and CST L-Trac trackballs.

I'm still waiting on the Steelseries Rival 310 (just shipped yesterday), but I received the Zowie EC1-B yesterday. I really like it. The shape is MUCH more comfortable than the G500, Castor, or Naos 7000. The mouse feet are smooth as butter also.

I really like the simplicity of it: the polling rate and CPI settings are controlled by buttons on the bottom, and there are only four fixed CPI settings to choose (Do I really need 50-100 CPI increments?), which display a color coded LED on the bottom. There's no software to install, not even a "new device detected" pop-up, true plug and play. No LEDs or anything (besides the indicators on the bottom), just a neat small logo on the back.

The scroll wheel steps and click are nice, despite what I've read in reviews. The clicks on all the buttons are very positive and crisp (the Castor's left click was just mushy enough that I sometimes had accidental discharges in game). The side buttons do have a little too much pre-travel, which I had read/heard in many reviews, but they aren't too bad. Just like every single other mouse, I can't reach the Mouse 5/forward button with my grip (hybrid fingertip/palm grip). I wish the mouse 4 and 5 buttons were vertical instead or at least shifted farther back, but this is an issue I have with every mouse I've used.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that one of the downsides is that the plastic is rather slick, so any sweat on the hands makes it slippery and a tad harder to hold onto.

I got the Steelseries Rival 310 a couple days ago. Initial impression is that I like the Zowie EC1-B more. The shape of the EC1-B is more comfortable. The side buttons are definitely better on the Rival, clickier and no pretravel, although it's harder to reach mouse 5/forward. I just really hate the overly aggressive shape of right-handed mice, I guess. Maybe the Sensei would feel better, but no point in spending more money if I like the EC1-B. I will say that the aggressive design maybe makes it a bit easier to pick up, but less comfortable overall. The materials handle sweat better though.

The Rival is perceptibly lighter weight (a good thing IMO), the scroll wheel is lighter both in click and scroll steps, and the left and right buttons are lighter. I do like the lower slope of the left and right buttons though, or maybe I just like switching back and forth between the two mice so that my hand doesn't feel stagnant. The feet are not as smooth the EC1-B. That's not to say they are bad; the EC1-B is just exceptionally smooth.

As far as sensor performance, I'd say they are equal. The Rival maybe feels a bit "looser" at the same CPI if that makes any sense, but I like them both. EC1-B has a 3360 sensor, and the Rival a "TrueMove3". Both feel very good.

There's more granularity in settings on the Rival such as 100 CPI increments and assigning macros, but they must all be done through software. I also don't use any of those. I basically stick to 1600 CPI and adjust in game sensitivity.

Overall, they're both great mice, but I prefer the shape and simplicity of the EC1-B. I'll continue using them both for a while to determine for certain which one I prefer. I may just keep both though.

Currently rocking a Logitech G203.

I've read several reviews online, and the Mercury sensor on this model seems to perform close to the ADNS3366.

It's size is comfortable for my fingertip grip style, and it was only $26 at Best Buy!

Very happy with the purchase.

This is going to be an unpopular opinion.

I like heavy mice with a high dpi. I also love competitive shooters, and I have found my preference here so polarizing, I keep it to myself.

I have my reasons though. When under pressure, I have always had problems with accuracy because my muscles begin not knowing their own strength, and it is difficult to calm them. This is a normal problem, but there are 2 legitimate ways to address this problem. The first is to slow the mouse WAY down so you need more movement. But you can also make the mouse weightier and achieve the same thing, and then you don't have to fling the mouse around like a madman all the time.

Low DPI isn't typically used to prevent accidental movements, it's used so you can make very small movements and get very precise, pinpoint control. Using a large mousepad and "flinging the mouse around like a madman" is simply a side effect of gaining that precise control. That control would be lost if you use high DPI because a small movement will always result in quick, jerky ones on screen.

It is the same because it takes more power to move the mouse. You can be more precise with a heavier mouse. But like I said, no one agrees with me so I keep it to myself. You do you and I will do me. No one has ever realized my DPI is high when spectating me.

G302 is mercury sensor..  That's more than enough for anything 2560x1600 and under..


For 4k, is where one could actually make a case for Pixart and Hero sensor

Sensei 300 and regretting it. The sensor isn't bad, but the shape is meh, and the build quality feels way inferior to most gaming mice from inferior companies, price at 10–20% of its price. And it already has occasional hiccups from time to time, forcing me to reconnect it from time to time. It'll take a while before I find one that's truly mine. And when I do, it may well end up being a lower model or an inferior brand compared to the great names of the gaming industry.

Logitech G900

The G900 has changed my view on wireless mice. I came from a deathadder and was worried about going wireless for gaming. I got the G900 on crazy sale and it's been nothing short of perfect. It holds a charge for like 5 days of heavy use. Love it.

Loved mine, but be careful with pressing too hard to click. Use a light finger. That mouse has a hinged left and right click, which is great since there is no plastic fatigue, but it is bad because you can more easily exceed the specifications of the switch(in spite of them using the best microswitches). The switches are easy to replace though, as they have their own daughter boards, but opening the mouse is a royal pain.

Hmm that’s good to know! Thanks for the info. I don’t think I have a particular heavy click but things get a little aggro while gaming. And raging. Haha

Logitech mice have an H-Bar stem which prevents overtravel on the switches.

The new ones have stem contact surfaces which are slightly tilted, and similarly prevents overtravel.

You can press as hard as you like, it will not cause overtravel.

That doesn't mean you can't hurt it if you tried to,  but no NORMAL HARD clicking will damage the switch in any greater capacity than light ones.
