What your fav mouse?
« on: Tue, 13 September 2011, 13:59:12 »
I use a g700, had old logitech that finally kicked the can.  I do not really like the g700 that much, the wireless mode doesn't last long, even on the energy saved mode.  It also does not feel as nice as other cheap mice.

This.
Also G9x and possibly DeathAdder if it has the same shape as the Habu.
Habu's sensor is too picky, but the shape is fantastic.

Lachesis 5600 - good buttons, good shape at least for me, dpi adjustments, very precise, colors :P
Intelli Explorer 3.0 - very comfortable but slow, needs some fixing of buttons and wheel
Xai - good shape, very precise, extra features for the sensor that I don't use personally, steelseries logo and layer always wearing out making the mouse look awful...( I had two Xai's ), buttons are too easily pressed in my opinion.

If the IE 3.0 sensor was faster I would definitely pick it over any other mouse I own.

Got a smaller board with white ALPS, Montereys, Cherry Blues, Reds, or Clears you'd like to offload?  Shoot me a PM. Looking for a grey Leopold FC700R in particular.

Favourite mouse? Logitech MX700, that was the best wireless mouse I've had, great for gaming. Too bad I lost it to an unfortunate accident involving lots of water >_<.
Using a Performance MX right now, not as good, but I got it on a very good sale so it's ok.

Lost count of how many rodents I had used in the past, cheap or expensive. I had always liked the shape of the MS wireless optical 1000, it just seem to fit my paws perfectly, also reminded me of the female anatomy but the strange saucer-like receiver was annoyingly big (not suitable with my laptop).
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 26689[/ATTACH]
As time passed, I had given-up seeking a mouse after numerous disappointments. This Summer, while I was browsing the Golden Computer Shopping Center in Sham Shui Po for a OCZ SSD, I came across the MS Wireless Optical 1000 DPI 2.4 GHz USB mouse and purchased it for  HK$99 :clap2: . I was at first, disappointed with the half-sized USB receiver as I had thought it had a "Nano" sized receiver when I purchased. After a few days of usage, the receiver size was forgotten (not really that big but it did stick out just a little from my ThinkPad). The shape is even more cleaner than its' predecessor, as it has lost a little of its' curvature, seems to have become a more mature female figure.

I had instantly began to like this mouse very very much................................it has become my all-time favourite...and that's in comparisons to the likes of MX518, BumbleBeeDeathAdder, LTD Edition BoomSlang etc etc etc. I also like the colour of the OptimusPrimeDeathAdder but I found Adders to be a little toooo light to suit.

Razer Abyssus.

The shape is perfect for my hand / grip style (fingertip). The sensor is also fabulous. It tracks as well as any mouse I've ever used, including $100+ laser mice (I use it at 3500dpi). I find that the glossy plastic sides of the mouse provide better grip than matte plastic / rubberized coating (Steelseries Kinzu felt like a slip n slide to me), though ymmv. The perfect mouse for fingertip / high sensitivity users imo.

Razer Naga Molten Edition(I had to get one that matches my rig's color theme which is black/red)...

Unfortunately I took a break from playing MMOs which is what the mouse is really built for. But I will be back in the MMO scene with SWTOR

But of course my overall favorite mouse of all time was the Logitech mx518.. that mouse lasted me so long and it was the one mouse I couldn't live without.

Does it differ from the Xai other than the looks, the feel of the surface, and the faster working LCD menu?

You can customize the lift distance (EXACTLIFT), and it use the new SteelSeries Engine driver instead of the "old" Xai driver (that never gets updated). I'm using a XAI at work, and the Sensei at home, and I would say get whichever is cheaper (but I still prefer the Sensei). One thing to note, the new SteelSeries Engine use a lot of memory (anywhere between 50MB to 100MB) so it might be something to consider. But you do not need to install it to configure/use the mouse.

Currently Explorer 3's, but my favourite of all time mouse was the Logitech Pilot Wheel + Razer Boomslang ball, Boomers had a tendancy to die, and I went through 2 of them, I popped the ball in a Pilot and it was smooth, accurate, fast, worked like a charm, improved my rail tenfold. I should've stocked up on them when I had the chance as they died alot, but cost £5 each

Intellimouse 3.0, or the 1.1  or the wmo.
Hands down. Infact, I love the sensors that MS put in their first gen mice because they are quite simply splendid, no prediction and if I game I never max out my movement. I feel they are smooth and accurate on all fronts.

I like the death adder and the 518 too, (and have 2 of each) but I dont find myself aiming as well if I use these.

I've been through a lot - MX510, rejected the 518 flat out, the G5, G5SE, G9, G500, Deathadder, Apple's wireless and USB mighty mice, but here's what stuck:

The Steelseries Ikari, and the Razer Orochi (laptop mouse).

The G9 needs a better location for the sensitivity switch and the scroll-wheel mode on top, the G500 needed profiles.  The Ikari is simple by comparison - four buttons, click wheel, and two sensitivities… but the devil, as they say, is in the details.  The ergonomics are glorious, and the sensor, noise correction, etc. are adjustable and do all their work on hardware - I just set the profiles, and forget the drivers ever existed, making them very Mac friendly.  They're very accurate, smooth-tracking, and the switch feel is excellent.  There's one button to toggle two sensitivity levels, meaning there's very little to think about while using them, and they're well placed to use without reaching, meaning you actually use it instead of ignoring it because of its accessibility (or lack thereof).

I'd like to like the Logitechs, but they offer a painful compromise with each new iteration.
I'd like to like the Razers, but their mac drivers kinda sucked - to the point they were performing better without them installed.  The Orochi was the first exception, and the bluetooth/USB hybrid design was a nice touch.

Razer Copperhead, I'm still triying to find a mouse with a similar shape for my fingertip/claw grips with more buttons and sensitivity (2000dpi feels just too low after I bought this 5700dpi mouse with the phillips twin eye laser sensor).
I think I'm going for the G9x since they recommend it for fingertip grip and logitech offers this nice feature that lets you assign a button for lowering the mouse sensitivity while pressing it (for those accurate sniper shots) that's much faster than having 2 buttons to change dpi up and down for the same purpose. I don't understand why razer or other gaming peripheral companies don't offer this simple feature, as far as I know only logitech, microsoft, R.A.T. and Roccat offer this.

Razer Naga, used to have a Deathadder for some 4 years, but then sometimes the left mouse button would randomly stop working. I wish the naga was bigger in scale, other then that its perfect.
I also tried the Imperator and a steel series mmorpg mouse (forget which one), but they didn't feel right for my grip.

I loved my G18 until the scroll wheel bit the dust. Now that's on my sons computer ( he's 5 and doesn't miss it ) And I use my G5.   Up until recently I ran it with no weight but for a change I loaded it up with max weight and like it so much better now.
