Default Gaming Mice

Any recommendations?

I'm currently using the Logitech G9, but I've had it about 6 years and it's basically falling to pieces.

I'd like something that is quite hefty in the hand and has a bit of weight to it. I'm not overly fussed about whether its wired or not. I'd like it to be programmable, but that's not a major factor and I'm looking to spend circa £40-£50.

I'm not adverse to getting a new G9 to replace it, that was my original intention, but if there are better or as good as alternatives out there, there's no harm in giving them a go.

Razer Orochi or Deathadder.

I guess it will depend on your preference, but here's a link.

I'm definitely leaning towards a razor of some sort. I asked the same question on FB and most of the suggestions are Razor

You could always go with Logitech too. They make a great product, but I will agree that Razor seems to be the favorite among gaming keyboard/mice.

i currently have the Razer Abyssus. Amazing for the price I paid. It's not a 293490234 button mouse. you can switch the DPI on the bottom of the mouse and has two frequency settings, even though it's wired.

If I didn't require a wireless setup, I would definitely have wired. I feel that they are more responsive, and less prone to any typing/mouse errors. However, I've always used Logitech products with no major issues.

I have to agree with Hitman, if you don't need wireless, try to avoid it. I had a wireless mouse and keyboard for a long time. After I switched to wired, I should have made the switch earlier.

I have the Deathadder and it is pretty good. I know with Razer you just need to be careful because sometimes you will get a product that will last years, and sometimes you will get one that lasts days, so don't be too upset if you need to replace it

I ended up asking Santa for it, so I've only just started messing about. It seems pretty nice so far. The G9 is a bit weightier which I think I prefer, but the Imperator is a better fit and comfier. It took as while to download, but aside from issues with the razer download/support site, the Razer software seems a little easier to configure too.

I'm just about to fire in to Crysis, see how it performs. Overall though, I'm impressed.

Nice, I love Razer products. I am still using a Copperhead from 5 or 6 years ago! I also use a Razer Black Widow Ultimate for my keyboard. I couldn't live without it now, it's fantastic. I can't comment on any of the current mice, but I will be getting a Taipan soon.

The three best gaming mice out there are the Razer Deathadder, the Zowie AM, and the Logitech G400.

Some people rave about the R.A.T. 9 but it looks pretty weird to me.

Personally I use the Razer Deathadder.

Perhaps for you, but personally I prefer the Imperator over the Deathadder as it feels more comfortable in my hand. I've no experience with Zowie products, but I hate the Logitech's shape and found it a pain (literally!) to use.

On paper, perhaps. In use.... only you can decide that.

Still looking for a new mouse Pretty sure getting a high quality gaming one would be nice.

Still thinking that the G500 (although looking the best) is a bit expensive...

Cooler Master CM Storm Xornet Gaming Mouse Black 2000dpi Laser - SGM-2001-BLON1 - Scan.co.uk

Any good?

I didn't even know Cooler Master made a mouse. IMO 2000dpi is really low for a gaming mouse if you're actually going to be doing any gaming with it. The G500 is going for $50 on newegg right now. I've seen it as cheap as $40.

I currently use G500 and I'm thinking about buying new gaming mouse. I am thinking to buy Thermaltake Level 10 because it adapts well to any gamer. What are the major characteristics that affect the quality of a gaming mouse? I found on the Best Gaming Mouse that the most important characteristics are comfort, buttons and DPI. What do you think about it?

Anyone that was wanting to get a Logitech mouse, they are on sale today on Amazon. The G4000-G7000 are all on sale along with the G105 keyboard.

*Edit* Looks like the link won't work, but just got to Amazon's site then click on "Today's Deals" or "Gold Box".

I'm sad to report a death in the family. The cherished and and much loved Forest firedrake Game mouse passed away peacefully during the night, after a long, happy and productive life of five months. It no longer lights up and nor does it move the Mahjong tiles around the screen.

So I've gone back to using the tried, trusted and more robust "方正集团" mouse that came with the school Pentium 4, Windows XP desktop computer, with my laptops. And I can't be bothered to spend the 30 RMB(equivalent $5) on another "Forest firedrake".

Wish I had seen this when it was new. I have had nothing but problems from Razer mice, a death adder, and two copper heads and their customer service was some of the worst I have dealt with.

I'm using a Cyborg RAT 7 and love it. The adjustability was the big seller for me since my mitts are huge.

I know razor makes good ones. Though I'm just using a Logitech EX100 for now. Nothing fancy, but it works.

It looks like a very nice piece of kit. Does the 7 only come in wired? I'm trying to work out what the difference is between the 7 and the 9. They all look awesome. I really like the look. Awesome.

7 is wired, 9 wireless. I stuck with wired because of latency issues, I know a lot of people who have tried the best of the best of the wireless mice and they all go back to wired.

Saw a real ugly gaming mouse in the supermarket this afternoon...

Meet the Jizz mouse..



I'll proxy if anyone wants one.

After you've gamed with a Jizz, you'll never want to use a Razer or a Logitech ever again....honest.

Btw, logitech just did a refresh on the G series

AnandTech | Capsule Review: Logitech's G100s, G500s, and G700s Gaming Mice

I like the look of the G500s but prefer wireless, but I don't know if I need all those buttons on the G700s

Looking at the review for the G500s, it's just a better laser sensor and a different body. Still got the sensor positioned high up?

Dunno. I personally use a Logitech Performance MX, which is definitely no gaming mouse. Apparently the latency is ~8ms, but I dont notice it. I'm generally pretty happy with it. But I wonder if I would have been a better Mass Effect 3 sniper with a G700s though


Personally I just prefer wireless, but it's nice to see there are a few wireless mice out there nowadays that have overcome the latency (such as the G700, G700s, and some Razer mice I think).

Yeah, the reason I went wired is because of what you said - the expensive £50+ mice are the ones which work properly :P

The Razer Naga is really nice if you're into MMOs. Played most of Diablo 3 with one hand thanks to it. It takes a bit to get used to, but way easier than using two key combinations for spells.

The mouse is a bit awkward at first, but you get used to it pretty quick. Even for daily use outside of games it is fine. It has a switch so you can switch the side buttons from the normal 0-9 and the NumPad 0-9. I do wish it had an option to completely disable the side buttons though, sometimes while playing FPS games I'll accidentally hit the side buttons and switch my weapons.

And last a long time? Maybe why the £3 (30 RMB) Forest firedrake crapped out after just five months? But did actually work properly most of the time, except on dark surfaces.

Anyone have thoughts on mouse mats/gaming surfaces? Thinking to get a cheap cloth one, but some people have told me a hard one is better - but is it worth £30?

Ozone Gaming Gear Ground Level XT Gaming Mouse Pad: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

I picked up that about 2 years ago and it's still serving me well. It's quite big, but other than that I've no real complaints.

That Ozone is similar in price to the one I use - the Razer Sphex

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Razer-Sphex-Gaming-Mouse-Mat/dp/B002GQSIWI

It's a hard gaming surface that doesn't have a spongy base. You actually stick it to the surface of your table/desk. I really like it because I can stick books/papers on it and it doesn't get in the way or move around because it's basically part of the table. You can always remove it and reuse it apparently and it doesn't lose its stickiness.

I've also been looking at that Razer sphex. ^_^ seems good enough

OR there's this one : http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002RL9A2Y/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p147_d0_i3?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE& pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0XCREKTW8AQN97ZAT7JK&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p =358549767&pf_rd_i=468294

Any opinions on which is better? Are they both hard mats?

Anyone?

Anything else on hard vs soft mats too? The description doesn't really say the Goliath is a hard mat so is my best chose the Sphrex then?

It depends on (a) your gaming style, (b) your mouse, and (c) personal preference.

Speed mats are generally assumed to be favoured by "twitch" gamers but I find my Destructor fine for precise photo work - I just dial the tracking sensitivity (dpi) right back and bump up the polling rate. My mouse tracks very accurately and has Teflon-coated feet, both of which which are ideal for the mat.

The Goliathus has a fabric 'control' surface, whereas 'hard' or 'speed' surfaces are smooth. The Sphex sounds like an oversized screen protector that sticks to your desktop, so it's probably closer to the latter than the former.

Does noob count as a gaming style? :-P
I'm new to mouse mats so I don't really know my preferences...or whether I need speed or control.. But control would probably be nice :-D


Edit : anyone had experience with the steel series 4hd?
