Re: New Mouse

I'll vote for Razer. I'm on my second Diamondback and it's the most comfortable and effective mouse I've ever used. The on-the-fly sensitivity is amazingly useful in game.

Re: New Mouse

I vote for Razor too, I've got the Diomiondback 3G and it is bnilliant. I would say it is more of a fingertip/twitch mouse though.

Would quite like to see what the Mad Catz RAT is like though: http://www.cyborggaming.com/prod/rat9.htm

Re: New Mouse

Been using Razer Diamondbacks for a number of years, excellent mice aside from the retardedly fragile wires.

I think it's a modular mouse so you can add different sections and take others away depending on how you like your mice.

Re: New Mouse

shame you can't make it left handed. It looks good but it'd be useless for me.

Re: New Mouse

You will never ever beat a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0. Theyve re-released it after years of pro-gamers begging with the old 9k fps tracking engine and its an absolute beast, beautiful to play with.

Re: New Mouse

Using one of them now at work ex0, does the job nicely feels great in the hand (Awaits this being quoted out of context), Never tried it for gaming though?
Always prefered the Logitecs for gaming and use a MX518 which imo is better than a lot of laser mice out there and has been proved so in this roundup from a few years back

http://www.esreality.com/?a=post&id=1265679

Granted its a old round up and a lot of mice have come out after but it goes to show that its not always best to get the top of the line 30000000 dpi laser turbo stroke 5000 edition mouse

Re: New Mouse

The MX518 is a classic, still one of the top mice on the market today id agree, personally for me the best Logitech Mouse ever made, way ahead of its time, none after that ever managed to capture the same quality. My dad has mine now after i retired it and its still going strong, just like new, and he loves it.

Nice that you have the intelli's at work For twitch based gaming the engines amazing, coupled with a good mat (Using a Razer Megasoma personally) its really really solid, my all time great.

Re: New Mouse

I love Logitech stuff which makes it even more annoying that their premium gaming products are no good to me.
