30/01/2010 à 05:52:13 Gaming mouse. Wich one to get??

Hello fellow gamersydes.

I'm trying to decide wich mouse to get for my gaming sisten. I have been using a conventional mouse for a really long time, but it doesn't work anymore. I decide to get a new mouse, and I want a proper gaming mouse.

For the moment my options are this:

RAZER Lachesis:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8...

RAZER DeathAdder 3.5G:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8...

Logitech MX518:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8...

Microsoft SideWinder:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8...

Wich of those you think will be better option? I just want your opinion.

I like the deathadder a lot, but the others look great to.

Thanks for your help :)

Get an optical mouse with 4 or 5 buttons, for no more than 40 bucks.

Logitech or Microsoft should serve you right.

No. Death Adder was the right answer.

Thanks guys I still deciding betwen the deathadder and the mx518. I have read a bunch of reviews and they seen to be equally great. I have found them both at the same price also. Tough choice

Go for the Logi man, even though it looks ugly as sin.
That Death Adder seems overkill/overpriced

Damn, I still use my Intellimouse Explorer. It can do per pixel precision and it's 7 years old; they don't even make them anymore... 40 bucks.
I don't see the need for anything more expensive
(I haven't needed to use a back/forward button for what seems like ages now, thanks to the fb buttons. Don't know if it applies to other brands without software running)


Whatever you get, just make sure you have a couple extra buttons on it and it's decent optical, else there's not much point in spending the money.
Laser is overpriced usually, but it doesn't succumb to the surface area crap.
(I had to build my own mouse pad out of cardboard and packing tape)

You should get this one, easily trumps anything else when it comes to aiming/precision.

The BEST!

I lol at this.

I think I'm gonna go with the deathadder but I'm betwen the old version or the new version. Is it worth it the extra DPI on the new version?

I've owned them both, and it's Death Adder all the way. You will not be disappointed. I have the old version. 2000dpi is fine.

Buy a nice surface too.

Thanks grift. I already make mind on the deathadder. I still deciding if I should get the new version or the old one.

About the surface I have a Xtrac Pads Ripper. I bought this one like 2 month a go. I think I'm fine with it!

I got a G9 for $20 new. Pretty nice imo. Great for OTF DPI changes.

No. Death Adder was the right answer.
Damn right mate, the Razer Deathadder is, by FAR, the BEST gaming mouse I have ever ever EVER E V E R used in my entire life!!!!!!!!

It can be expensive, but it does have its reasons. It`s firstly, a dedicated `Right-Handed` mouse, (left-handed option is now available too), which adds so much more comfort, that you`ll wonder why you ever used a simple `Universal mouse` before.

When you hold it, (not to sound weird in any way lol), but you kinda feel like saying: "Oh yeah baby, you and me got some fraggin` to do baby!", as it really does fit so comfortably into your hand.

To be honest, I am always on the lookout for wireless versions too and was pleased to see that Razer recently released their new `Mamba` mouse, which is the same body & dimensions as original Deathadder mouse, but now it comes in this new wireless form and has a sweeet looking charge stand with it too.

Link 1 (Official): http://eu.razerzone.com/gaming-mice/razer-mamba/

Link 2 (Pic):http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget.com/media/2009...

Oh my: http://eu.razerzone.com/media/catalog/product/cach...

If on the other hand this is too expensive, then the regular Deathadder wired version, (like mine), is cheaper and just as good. To be honest, I do get concerned that one day the wire will split and render my mouse useless, but it`s a good trade-off, knowing that it`ll never run out of charge during an instance in Warcraft for example lol. (The Mamba can be used as a wired mouse too, by plugging in its wired charge cable).

I hope this helps mate, but seriously, get a Razer product as I know deep down inside that the day my Deathadder dies, I`ll be straight on the internet buying a direct replacement, or the new Mamba.

10 out of 10 for Razer !!!!!

I'm still using my Razer Copperhead mouse. Even though it's not the latest/greatest thing out there at the moment, it still works wonders for me, so I'd recommend a Razer mouse any day.

I wish I had the actual cost of a gaming mice to show you the markup.

The actual cost of gaming mice is uh, bullshit. Acert got a G9 for $20. It's a great mouse. MX518's are also great alternatives. You can find first gen Death Adders on the cheap.

Your point is stupid. The NES pad thing was a gross overstatement obviously, but it is a lot like playing your console with some crappy third party controller. If you're going to game, you want a solid device that's going to perform as good as it feels. If you actually played PC games (especially FPS) for any reasonable length with a good mouse on a good surface you wouldn't think it was so stupid. Every PC gamer here knows that gaming mice aren't bullshit.
