Logitech G502 Proteus Core.  Second (maybe 3rd) best mouse I've ever used.  Logitech G500 is the best mouse ever imo.  followed by either the MX revolution (RIP)  or the 502.  I can't live without the extra buttons left and right on the scroll wheel.  Double edged sword because that gives me a very narrow selection of mice to choose from but luckily logitech makes great mice. 

Currently at work though I'm using a Razer Lachasis until I can fix my G500.

Currently at work, using a DeathAdder 3.5G. Wouldn't recommend it because it has a glossy surface and sub-par (for me) ergonomics. At home I have a Roccat Kone XTD and it's so much better. 10/10

I don't know if this would count as mine don't point  :)) . I actually been using an Apple Trackpad for 5 years now. I really like this for general computer stuff such as surfing the internet and word processing. For gaming I do switch to a regular small logitech mouse cause I find it more easy for gaming. I really like it due to it's customizable gesture nature. I can three swipes or two swipe in a certain direction to process almost any kind of command I set it to. Really useful.

I use an apple trackpad with my hackintosh just for the gestures, it makes working so much quicker!
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

The dumber the reason the more it must be done

Mionix avior 7000. had a few issues but solved and went away.
Looking for a mousepad, not sure if i should buy another qck.
I recommend the avior!

How is the Rival? I've seen the razer taipan, my avior, the rival, and the fk1. Was stuck on the avior and rival because:
razer: razer. tis all I need to say.
fk1: heard it's plagued with issues. scroll wheel to hard sidebuttons to sensor, who knows.

Rival has questionable build quality, and straight up bad material choices. the rubber wears off in a few months. you'll notice your hands being covered in rubber after gaming on it for a while :p
it's also really heavy and grips very differently from the Avior.

I wouldn't recommend a QcK when there are so many better options out there - but it really depends on your preferences. if you could describe a little how you would like your mouse to glide...

Logitech G600 right now, I have to finish its review. I've used a Razer Naga quite a lot in the past, but this thing really just feels wrong in my hand...  :confused:

And yup, the Logitech G602 feels a whole lot better than it does.

I know ergonomics do not always apply the same way to everyone, but the Logitech G600 just feels wrong to just about everyone, be it Palm, Fingertip or Claw grip users.

In that way, the Logitech G602 is a whole lot better than it is, even though it's quite a big mouse.

CM Storm Octane, Cooler Master's new gaming combo, now using the AVAGO 3050 sensor instead of the crappy Pixart PAW 3309DH the previous one had:



But...






Yup, still sucks and internals are full of low quality components. But, compared to the CM Storm Devastator, at least now it's just a bad gaming combo instead of plain garbage.

Sure, as far as I know, there's the CM Storm Alcor+ (with side-grips and Pixart PMW 3310 sensor) and a mouse that looks just about the same as the Steelseries Sensei coming up (you could say it's a better version of the Recon), but there may be others I do not know.

Anyways, now that I finished reviewing both CM Storm gaming combos, I can go back to reviewing mice that are actually interesting and good, such as this lil' thing I got from a modder friend:



It's a replica of the extremely rare "Razer Cypher Deathadder":



According to Razer itself, only 15 of these were produced, but finding one is almost impossible. And the most interesting thing is, Cypher himself does not uses this mouse nor any Deathadder.

The replica in question is actually quite nice, I had a Deathadder a few years ago and this one surely isn't worse than it, since there is a Deathadder 3.5G inside of it (though the original version used 3G internals).

I'm definitely the odd duck then, I think it's damn near perfect. I'd absolutely love a mouse with it's shape and standard forward/back buttons.

But then again, I absolutely love Wingman-inspired shapes. I still have one of these bad boys:



To this day, still one of the best feeling mice I've ever used. Sensor sucks tho :(

I'm trying out the G302 from Logitech right now. strangely very natural to grip for me, despite having the oddest shape that looks nothing like any ergonomic mouse out there.
so far, it is making me question what I've been looking for as a grip in a mouse before :p
it's a bit narrow in the front, which is fine, but you should definitely try it out before using it.

buttons are great, scroll wheel is alright.
can't comment much from a sensor performance perspective yet. I don't have my proper gear available, and using a very ****ty slow laggy monitor for the time being. but it should perform similarly to the G100s, which is good.

You know whats funny? I went out found a 1010 on amazon for $25 shipped.  I ended up buying it knowing that it wouldn't live up to replace my fps mouse.  I actually love the damn little thing, I just wish the mouse hertz could at least hit 500hz instead of the 315hz it keeps hitting.  I know the 2020 is actually somewhat usable for desktop and rts duty.  They all hit $100+ and I just can't justify that.  I'm thinking about opening her up and seeing if I can swap in the guts from a Zowie MiCO.  CM Storm Xornet is on the way though, maybe that will satisfy me.

The 1010 was a phenomenal mouse, except the mouse buttons were complete rubbish. If you do end up replacing the internals, I'd strongly suggest swapping out the switches for some Omrons or something similarly high quality.

A Fake Razer Abyssus 3.5G Mirror Edition.

Just finished making an article of how to recognize the fake versions and all the differences between the original and fake, although it's in Brazilian Portuguese:
http://adrenaline.uol.com.br/forum/hardwares-em-geral/551765-tutorial-como-identificar-um-razer-abyssus-3-5g-mirror-edition-pirata.html

But then again, I can just post some pictures here...









And yes, that's an AVAGO 5050 IR sensor there.

The funny thing, is that ALL fake mice have the SAME Serial Number: PM0949024101311

CST2545-5W Trackball I got for christmas, it's my first trackball so it'll take some time to get used to and I still need to break in the bearings but so far I really like it.
People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

The dumber the reason the more it must be done

On CST's website they are hinting about an upgraded PCB/Laser for the L-Trac.  Do you know anything about this?

No but there are a few things they could change to make it better like more dpi options and the ability to change polling rate. But other than that I don't see much they could improve. Maybe accuracy?

Here is the response I got:

Quote from: email from CST
We are planning on just releasing the info on the new PCB on our website probably in the next few days.

We are currently selling the new ones now but getting one depends on where you buy the L-Trac from and whether they have bought L-Trac's from us in the past few weeks or not, I suggest asking the seller and maybe requesting one. You will be able to tell if the trackball has the new PCB by the "R2" next to the Model # on the label on the bottom of the trackball, all L-Trac's with the new PCB have the "R2". Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Guess I got the new one, mine has R2 stamped after the model #. I wonder what they changed?

Newly Designed PCB and Upgraded Laser Sensor Details

Our Newly Designed PCB and Upgraded Laser Sensor offers the same level of reliability and control that L-Trac users have come to expect over the years. All the same individual L-Trac models will continue to be available and they will all have the new PCB and Laser Sensor. All L-Trac models will continue to offer the same CPI (800, 1600, 400) which is still the highest of any trackball available today. New features are also available and include:

- Field Programmability
- Improved Precision Tracking
- The ability to change out the solid black ball for any other colored 2.25 ball (the same size as a regulation billiard ball). (Note: under standard operation any colored ball will work but the solid black ball has the best performance)

The new L-Trac's are Available Now, to see if you have one simply check the label on the bottom of the trackball and if there is an R2 next to the model number then you have an L-Trac with the New PCB and Laser Sensor.

Using a brand-new Razer Naga 2014.

Sure, it has a good number of improvements over the original, but somehow I really prefer the ergonomics of the older one...

Wetto you should definitely get/start your own website  ;)

Razer Copperhead, had this since it came out in 2005

That's one of my favorite mouses.

---------------------------------

BTW, the new Naga 2014 surprised me a lot. All of the flaws I had mentioned on my previous Naga review (Naga Molten) were fixed, plus there are many enhancements on build quality as well. Better plastic, better internals, better coating, and surprisingly, the new Philips Twin Eye PLN 2034 is not only a good sensor (unlike the previous ones), but it may as well be the best laser sensor ever used on a mouse, the LOD is just insane when properly adjusted, there's no Z-Axis problems, no durability problems, no tracking problems, doesn't seems to have Dynamic DPI Scaling as far as I've seen..

It is actually adjustable, altough i need to read up on the exact numbers and featureset because apparently there are differences within the 8200cpi models.

and im still waiting for my PTE Taipan..... :(

It's nice that they fixed the Naga. I wonder if they made internal quality improvements on the DA Chroma from the DA 2013. I seem to remember people complaining about the clicks wearing down quickly.

Also, Whooo! Hey congrats on the new site launch! :thumb:
Keep up the good work and good luck. I hope you expand your content in both english & portuguese and maybe start a forum/community too!

I relubed the bearings in my CST L-Trac with a thick lube and it is now buttery smooth and feels a bit heavier to move the ball. I think I'm in love.

Microsoft Trackball Explorer.  Luckily I grabbed a bunch of them way back when because you can't get them, or anything like them anymore.  Any other mouse drives me crazy.  The sculpted shape feels good in my hand too. 

But I am oldschool, I spend 90% of my time without touching the mouse.
