What do you use /g/?
no scroll wheel. I have OS X rigged to scroll when holding the right mouse button and moving the ball
Using a Roccat Savu. Ordered a Kone Pure Military to replace it.
Overall satisfied with it, was prretty fucking inexpensive, has decent features and button, and a nice softwrae to it.
The only downside to it is that the plastic is a bity shiny and this susceptible to dirt. (Not cheeto stains...)
come on logitech, these things are $250 for new old stock at this point
make a new one (and put the sensor in the right spot this time)
Its successors are good mouses. 400s is basically the same shit with a slightly higher DPI, 402 has a very slightly different shape and better placed buttons. It also has an accelerometer if you throw your mouse around the desk when playing, supposedly it works well but you'll probably never reach the speed at which it kicks in anyway.
I keep clicking the DPI-Shift (or "Sniper Button" if you're a massive wanker) because it's right on the part your thumb's supposed to rest on. It's the reason I haven't remapped it to something more useful than DPI-Shift.
Guys, what do u think of logitech g300?is it any good? Im alright with its price in my country, not too much riced (only w stripes of led), looks sexy, has its curves instead of flatness, has additional buttons,optic sensor, not wireless
Using Steelseries Kana v2 which is worthless shit.
The liftoff distance is fucked (ps: anyone who mentions the "tape trick" is a fag). Mouse 3 is also fucked after only a few months of use. Also if you lift it a bit over some surfaces the pointer starts shaking and spazzing out hard. Its actually ridiculous how bad this mouse is for the price.
I had been using that for several months, recently though I have been using the ROG Gladius.
Got the G400S a couple days ago. Don't have any problems with it, it's pretty comfortable.
I've been through the MX518, G400, G700s and the G502.
While I really liked the G502, it has way too many awkward buttons. So far the only issue I have with the G302 is that it has a rubberized cable instead of a braided one. That and I wish it had one of those free-flowing lockable scroll wheels like the G502 has.
Otherwise, the secondary button placement and size on the mouse is god-tier and it's a lot more comfortable in hand than it looks like it would be.
MSI Interceptor DS100. It's probably a shitty mouse objectively (couldn't find any reviews), but I got it for free when I was buying a graphics card and it works infinitely better than the wireless Logitech I was using before, so I don't complain
I use pic related and love it. Will admit it's not the best for comfort but I don't notice most of the time and I've grown used to having all the buttons, although I wish I had the version where the two buttons are beside the left click. I have this paired with a Nostromo and it's awesome for gaymen.
g402 is the "successor" of the g400 line which is the "successor" of the MX518 line.
G302 is a new "different" concept they've thrown out there.
Otherwise, G402 has two additional buttons on the left mouse, moved the DPI switch to the thumb position.
No idea on any practical differences on the sensor(logitech is trying to tout the g402 as some amazing sensor or something).
Oh right, also the g402 is .73oz heavier than the G302, which might matter for some people.
Never enough love for based Roccat Kone XTD in these threads.
not the vengeance one, the gaming one.
I like it a lot but It's still too small for my hand.
I would have switched to a trackball to a trackball or touch pad by now, if it wasn't for video games
All great leaders use trackballs
I love my roccat savu
flawless sensor (avago3090) and 5 buttons for $37
Picked it up for $50. Using it at work right now until I build a PC at home
g302 is an ambi mouse, while the g402 is ergonomical. If you palm, get the g402. Otherwise get the g302 or even g100s. They are also both lighter than the g402.
If you do more than 3 m/s swipes, get the g402.
this got really gay once everyone started talkin about hand size
I dislike the textured grip but the scroll wheel is nice. Ended up not needing the extra weight though.
I see what you mean. That's got to be the most retarded placement for DPI buttons I've yet to see.
I have a logitech g9x, and the dpi buttons are at the top of the left mouse button, and I occasionally hit that.
I read you can turn the DPI buttons off in the software for the G502, though they should just make it where you long press the button to change the dpi setting.
Fuck, Logitech is the most retarded company. They always do something to fuck up what could be an excellent hardware design.
Had it since last year, never had any problems with it.
Only problem I've had with mine is the black vinyl over the "G" has come mostly off. other than that, no problems here either, save for that the 'back' button on the side makes a different noise to the 'front' one. But that's just my autism.
I've got a g700s. Really comfy mouse and works surprisingly well for my gaymen.
I also have a m570 trackball mouse for when I'm not at my desk. Not great for gaming but works flawlessly for literally everything else.
I didn't read any of this tread and this is the reason why.
have fun nerds
>Had it for 3 years and it's still working
>Never had any problems with it
>No wires to get in the way
>20$ at my local gas station
Yep, Logicool G502. Had a little learning curve, but it fits my meat hooks pretty good.
I've got a G700 and have had it for years now. It fucking kills my little finger and causes my hand to ache after a few hours of gaming. Thinking of getting a new mouse but don't want to end up having the same problem. Could anyone recommend a mouse for me?
The cord and mouse wheel are starting to fuck up, so I've been mulling over the Zowie FK (I don't know which revsion) or the Deathadder 2013. I still don't know what to buy.
I use the Molten Razer Naga but its pretty much the same. Sure I don't use all 15 buttons, but having all the buttons on the side binded with macros makes browsing my computer so much easier. It definitely not the best for comfort since I have gorilla hands, but I can use it for +6 hours without much discomfort.
I just got this. It's big enough to fit my large hands comfortably and I like the color, wish it was a bit heavier though.
I owned the T650. It's an 11/10 product. No trackpad compares. Even works well on Linux.
My daily driver is a Performance MX. I had one for two or three years. I abused the fuck out of it. It still works, but the sensor is starting to get crappy/die and the battery life isn't as good as when it was new.
I got a new one for Christmas. And it's so nice and clean and functional now, compared to my tortured old one.
i ordered g400 its my first gaymen mouse, but if I dont like it I will return it and get that instead, it looks very comfy, especialy that sticking out part for thumb/part of palm just under thumb,
how does the charge/batteries hold against daily use?
quality issues on early batches aside nothing (except the switches being unfit for a lot of games that aren't fps but that's subjective) but there are several mice with the same sensor and several others with sensors just as good
I use my computer maybe 3-5 hours per day, six days per week. Roughly. I charge once a week or every other week. You can use it while it's charging, but it still goes over wireless. Even for gaming though, this mouse is execellent and has some great precision, weight. I use my PC mainly for gaming and photo work. Never has let me down. It's only around $55 USD on amazon.
you are right about quality control issues on early batches (probably because of the ultra high demand)
i really like stiff switches more than light ones and of course there are a lot of mice these days with the same sensor
but not one mouse with a 3310 is as light as the fk1
i didn't say it's the best mouse ever but the best fps mouse IMO
Just ordered one of these...anyone have any experience?
I dunno some shitty combo mouse, but since I mainly play strategy games it should be acceptable enough.
If I need to get a new mouse I will. I was thinking a G series. I play FPS occasionally, enough that if I wanted a new mouse I'd get one suited to that, at least.
shitty custom lens
my ideal mouse would be a g400 sensor inside a deathadder shaped shell without any extra buttons just left click, right click and scroll/click.
the only reason anyone uses that piece of shit fk mouse is because top csgo players are paid to use it. it's a thoroughly mediocre mouse.
So it comes down to g400s vs g502. The g400s has a shitty cord, but a better rest on the left side for the ring and small finger. The g502 has a braided cord, but the skates are prone to wear faster than the g400s due to smaller surface areas. Some also complained about the button at the thumb, I have small hands tho.
>save for that the 'back' button on the side makes a different noise to the 'front' one
Why did you make me realise this. Why couldn't you have left me ignorant.
When did your razer mouse die?
My deathadder is going on year 4 now and it still feels like it has years to go. You never know, though :)
Especially with your big ass ham hands, fatty
Haven't used a G502, but I did have a G400 for 4 years and switched to a G402 when it broke. G402 feels like a minor upgrade to me. Button placement is better and otherwise it's very similar, I didn't even really have an adjustment period for aiming and shit, coming from the G400 I felt right at home.
R.A.T. 7, Inb4 bitching about sensor, I'm not as ridiculious as to require some op 9001 DPI sensor.
I love how solid it feels, how awesome it looks and after a brief check through the manual programming it is awesomely easy and versatile.
RAT 7 picture. Replaceable panels is cool too.
I have small hands, I did paw a mouse 16 hours a day or more during that time though. First was a Lachesis that had sensor problems which I've noticed after a day, had it replaced immediately. The replacement Lachesis' right mouse button broke after half a year. Guess what I had used for jumping in FPS and freelook in MMOs.
Had that one replaced as well, but since the Lachesis was an older model, they gave me a second generation DeathAdder instead. Only received 1 year warranty for it. The scroll wheel button sunk into the frame after 13 months.
How's the button at the thumb?
Never has this little fucking tank failed me
Got that same mouse for christmas, it really is a nice one. I like the fact it fits my hand a lot better than other mice, and it feels really comfortable.
Trying to find a way bind the zoom and application switcher buttons to something, should I use xbindkeys for it?
i tested both
for me the g402 is much better,
the mousewheel of the g502 is too noisy, the mouse is for me too heavy around 130g (+ weight adjustable 15g), and the mousewheel is out of plastic.
g402 got around 110g , better mousewheel, not so noisy, and the sensor is good, had problems with the laser of the g502, i played the same dpi and same sens, but it was different, g402 is a 9.5/10 for me, the click on the mousewheel is for me a lil bit too heavy, but thats all, rest is perfect, the sensor is underrated, some just read this sensor havent test it and say shit about it, but it has the same sensor like the g100s and many gamers like it
I got a g602 a few months ago, i was hesitant about wireless but damn if its not the best mouse I've ever owned. Thing is amazing!
software was a touch fiddly at first but seems to have been fixed with updates.
Well, I need something to replace my G400. I didn't really like the scroll wheel on the G400, so I was looking at getting either the Deathadder 2013 or Zowie FK2. But not a lot of people have nice things to say about the FK, so I'm trying to find other options that are both cheaper and easier for me to get.
