Favourite mice that you've owned?
« on: Tue, 27 August 2019, 14:15:37 »
Active community member  of r/mousereview.

I'd like to know what you're favourite mice in your collection is and if so, how long you've had it.

I will start. I have two mice, the G302 and the G203. The G302 is great and is used as my producivity mouse (Quora, homework) and my gaming mouse is the g203.

I don't have a favourite child but i'm going to go with the g203 as a all around great mouse. Does everything i need to do and has a considerably comfortable shape.

Back in the day I loved my Belkin Nostromo N30 despite the ball clogging up regularly, as balls do.  Not enough buttons for modern users but really comfy.

"Vertical" mice are terrible if they are actually vertical, because you have to resist the pressure you use to push the buttons.

The ones that are actually more diagonal work and feel much better. I started off with the Wow Joy Pen, but it died after a couple of years and I got an Anker, which is great.

"I never understood wind. I know windmills very much, I have studied it better than anybody. I know it is very expensive. They are made in China and Germany mostly, very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured, tremendous — if you are into this — tremendous fumes and gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint, fumes are spewing into the air, right spewing, whether it is China or Germany, is going into the air. A windmill will kill many bald eagles. After a certain number, they make you turn the windmill off, that is true. By the way, they make you turn it off. And yet, if you killed one, they put you in jail. That is OK. But why is it OK for windmills to destroy the bird population?" - Donald Trump - Turning Point USA speech - 2019-12-22

I gotta say it's easily the Razer Naga Trinity.

I switched to the Naga several years ago when I started getting into WoW PvP more heavily. I always had complaints about it, but it was kind of essential once I got used to the grid.


- The shape fits my hand perfectly. It's the only mouse I can use that doesn't cause my hand to cramp up. Keep the fingers spread out well. Isn't too heavy. Nice and round in the palm. Etc. I can just set my hand on it and it fits. Never feel the need to adjust.
- Swappable sides means the grid no longer gets in the way when not needed. I got used to it, so it wasn't an issue for me personally, but I know that was a turnoff for a lotta people.
- Optical sensor, versus the kinda meh laser one they used to have.

I don't think I've ever owned a mouse I really liked. Optimally I'd like just a sensor on my fingertip that I can wave around as a mouse.

While you cannot wave it around, exactly, and it does not quite reside on your fingertip:

The "finger" or "ring" mouse sort-of meets that description; the caption asserts the user can "say goodbye to mouse hand."

(Which raises the question: Is saying hello to "mouse finger" necessarily an improvement?)

Perhaps someone considers that particular style of mouse to be their favourite and can speak from experience about long-term use?

I'm into wireless mice as I only own a laptop so portability is key. I had a Logitech M325 at first but that was a bit too small. I used it a lot though and it just got lost. Then I got a bit bigger one - M510. It fit my hand quite well and it was great for productivity and office work. But it started acting up a bit. So a week ago I purchased Logitech G305. And I gotta say it's definitely my favourite out of the three. It's simple, fits my hand well and I really enjoy the customizability both for buttons and DPI. M510 compared to G305 doesn't stand a chance when gaming - the ability to change and have higher DPI is really nice.

Main for gaming/everything: Glorious Model O - I usually don't like ambi mice but I don't mind the shape and I love the light weight. Just solidly built overall.
Main before that: Logitech G403 - Really loved the shape and simplicity of this mouse.
Currently using at work: SteelSeries Rival 310 - Also love the shape on this mouse, perhaps even more than the G403.
Also use at home for wireless: Logitech MX Master - Decent mouse, to be honest I mostly love it because in beige it matches my sleeper desktop build.
Also use at home for wireless: Logitech M570 trackball - An absolute classic, I have two.

Logitech MX Revolution,
I only got rid of my last one a couple months ago and they have a cult like following and for good reason. Wireless and bluetooth models, nice size and shape, a charge dock/reciever if you had rechargeables in it, and decent battery but the kicker was the scroll wheel, it auto clutched; notchy if you spun slow and automatically switch to free spin if you spun fast.

Unfortunately the charge connectors on the bottom would get grimy and not like to charge, the dpi is not good compared to todays mice, and the wireless models had an issue like all wireless of the day (other than BT, which has it's own issues) in that it would start losing range as it aged.

I miss my Naga Epic.

Wireless with the opportunity to charge by cable while playing + comfy + a ton of button well located.

But a broken synapse update killed it so I will never buy razer stuff anymore. 129€ mouse killed by a software give me too much deception and hate about this brand.

While you cannot wave it around, exactly, and it does not quite reside on your fingertip:

(Attachment Link)
I've got the wired version of that. It is total crap.

The sensor needs to be absolutely flush with the mousepad to work. The scroll wheel got loose immediately, because of a bad solder joint which broke extra early because the rotary encoder was oriented the wrong way for it to take stresses properly.

The reason I got it was actually for parts, for testing out an idea for a mouse-pen. You could get more precision with a pen than a mouse, but pens don't stand up when you let go. My idea was to build a mouse-pen like a weebly toy, that is round and heavier at the bottom.
But I think moving electronics from the pen to the surface as much as possible would be better.
Back in the late '90s there was an alternative "stylus" for the Palm Pilot's resistive screen in the form of a ring worn at the top of the index finger. The ring had a nub on it.
There are now finger styli for capacitive touch screens, and Nintendo DS but those have the nub on the under-side of the finger-tip. However, this older one for the Palm Pilot had a sharp nub forward, more like a pen, and I think it was possible to type on a keyboard while wearing one.
If there was such a ring for something like a Wacom tablet, and it felt like a pen to use then it would achieve the same thing as my weebly mouse idea: it would be like a pen that you didn't have to pick up to use.

MX Master 3 at work, G305 at home.

Had the GPW, preferred the G305. Ultimately I would LOVE a light and wireless Deathadder, but that'll probably never happen

I recently bought (in the past month or so) an MX Master for work and an MX Master 2S for home.  They're by far the nicest mice I've ever used.  Before that, I had used a Logitech M705 for a couple of years.  With all of the spreadsheets I deal with, horizontal scrolling is pretty important to me, and I love how I can flick the wheel on the MX Master and it goes into free-wheeling mode.  It's also a plus that the original MX Master's stone color is almost a perfect match for off-white Topre Realforce keyboards.  :D

I find it super helpful, specially in CSGO. I set it super low and use it when Awping.

G Pro wireless for me. Recently tried the Glorious model O- because of all the hype surrounding it, great sensor and shape, but it was jist too small for me, plus the looks are quite in your face and I soon got sick of it. Had the original G pro, g502 as well, both great in their own way but G pro wireless is just perfect for me.

One thing I would never touch again is anything Razer, horrible imo.

I've owned a Razer Deathadder 2013 since... 2013! It has served me very well ever since, both for gaming and light productivity. If you told me in 2013 that the only thing in my setup I would still be using by the end of the decade was my 70$ mouse I would have told you to get out of my house because I wouldn't know you and it would've been an awkward interaction for both of us.

Logitech G9x - I've had this since around 2012, and it's still going strong. Has interachangeable 'shells', you can adjust the weight of it, and there are on-board buttons that can adjust the sensitivity. I also just loved the look of this mouse, the angular shape of it - but it is still very comfortable in hand.

Razer Basilisk - This is my day-to-day mouse which I use in the office. I have all the lights switched off though because I'm not a fan of RGB. It also has on-board buttons for adjusting sensitivity, and even for adjusting the sensitivity of the mouse wheel, which I find handy. Ergonomics are quite good, for my preference, and for the size of my hand.
