Gaming Mouse?

Gaming Mouse?

Postby Notso Penguin » February 8th, 2015, 7:20 am

I think it is about time for me to get a gaming mouse.... Right now I am using a ~$30 wireless Logitech mouse that is definitely not for gaming. It has a hard time tracking fast movements.

Set a higher max price if you can.. $80 bucks is pretty low for what is considered to be gaming mice. I use the razer mamba and I've had it for about 3 years and it will likely replace it this year - it's around $130
In all this vastness there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves

Logitech G400s (What I use) and Razer Deathadder are both 60. I recommend the Logitech G400s though, since it's gaming software is a bit more user friendly than Razer's.

I agree with Wise, the Logitech G400s is a good choice. I have a Deathadder that I got on sale, otherwise I would have gotten it. Both are great options for your price range.

I bought a Razer Taipan and I'm completely satisfied with it. I actually really noticed a difference between this and a non-gaming mouse.

I have been using a razer naga for 4 yrs and I absolutely love it. Priced at $60 US http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826153125&cm_re=razer_naga-_-26-153-125-_-Product it's a great gaming mouse. I use it because I need the side buttons for binds and weapon switch. The software is pretty straight forward and has all you need to fine tune it and set up macros and other fancy things. I highly recommend it.
When in doubt, get BLASTED!

I have a 6+ year old Microsoft mouse that double clicks when you don't want it to 8-)

Running a Logitech G580. Got it at Best Buy for around $50, iirc. I love it.
Razer is also known to have great (but expensive) gaming mice, the current "best" model being the DeathAdder, last I checked.
