What kind of mouse do you use and are you happy with it? My left clicker on my razer adder is messed up and it's time to get a new one. I don't think I want to get another one because this was after only one year. The rainbow lights are kind of cool, I guess.
I use a mix of relaxed and claw grip and have small hands so it's seemingly impossible to get something that's fully comfortable. Maybe I should try a trackball or something, but can those be as accurate as mice?
Uhh... post about computer mice or something.

some cheapo logitech mouse

it also has rgb lighting but I find those annoying so I turned it off

Had a Corsair M90 for a long time that I loved. The macro buttons and their layout were great and I liked how heavy and sturdy it was with the aluminum body. Just this year the right click gave out and the scroll wheel started jumping around so I got a new one. A Corsair Scimitar. I don't like it as much. The macro button layout it different and it feels a lot cheaper than the M90. Plus it does this stupid RGB fading cycle whenever my PC is locked that I can't figure out how to turn off. The software for this one is better than the M90 though, I think.

had the same issue, and i've read that you can usually diy fix it, but i haven't yet tried. shame about the build quality; liked everything else about the deathadder. also felt good for med-large hands and fingertip+claw grips.

there are sites that evaluate/list sensor quality, click response, dimensions, and weight, but i doubt that you really -know- comfort without going to a store and getting hands on. if there's an online store with a lenient return policy, maybe you could take advantage of that.

general advice sucks, but i've just been using junk mice and not playing fpses/etc for a few years. to make up for that, here's a hanpan.

I'm on the opposite end, I got long bony fingers and it's always tough to find a mouse that I can use without clawing up too much. The basic thermaltake is one of the best feeling ones I've found, but the scrollwheel seems to wear out within a couple years, I think I'm on my third one now. Kind of wish I could find a comparable mouse that's more durable.

I use a ROCCAT KONE Pure Owl-Eye. I think it's decent enough, but it's probably more expensive than it's really worth, although I think that probably goes for most PC peripherals anyways. I've had it for about 2 years now. In that time, one of the color LEDs died inside of it which made the RGB pattern on it look really dumb, so I turned that off. Every now and then the middle click registers more clicks than it should, but those are the only problems I have with it. I just wish there was some solution to grime accumulation. I don't really care about macro buttons at all. I'm fine with the simple additional two buttons for history-forward and history-backwards and I think they're pretty handy for web browsing. The DPI buttons are nice too when launching programs tht have different mouse speed settings. I like it, I guess. Not sure how much longer it will last, however.

logitech g203 and g502, both work with no problem for 2 years. sensors on both seem pretty good, cursor movement is smooth on various kinds of surfaces. the infinite scroll wheel on g502 is nice.
i have bad experience on razer too, the scroll wheel on two i used broke within one year, the sensor was also garbage and only worked on mouse mats or paper, cursor jumped around randomly. perhaps i got fake ones...

There are several different versions of the DeathAdder including 'mini' sized ones, so it would be helpful if you were more specific about which one you have that broke. I've got a "DeathAdder 2013" which had the side grips come off but otherwise works fine.

Overall you should ask yourself some primary questions:

Wireless or Wired?
Laser or Optical?
Basic or extra buttons?
Infinite or basic scroll?
Do you need macro support software or no?

That should narrow down the list pretty quickly.

It's this one. The Deathadder Elite. I used a wireless mouse long ago, but found that wireless stuff has too many problems with accuracy and signals and stuff. Plus the batteries are an extra cost and it's annoying to have it die on you suddenly.

>Laser or Optical?
I thought this was the same thing?

>Basic or extra buttons?
Extra buttons are so useful, I love having them. Having copy and paste keybinds on the mouse is a huge convenience. I had some MMO mouse a decade ago that I forgot the name of, wasn't too comfortable but it had a numpad's worth of buttons.

>Infinite or basic scroll?
What does this mean? The mousewheel only rotates to a certain point? I guess infinite.

>Do you need macro support software or no?
Not really, just basic options. I really don't know what kind of macros people use on their keyboards and mice these days.

I know it was a question asked to myself, but I decided to answer them in a post.

I've been using this fantech X9 Thor for I think almost three years now and its still going strong. The only problem I have with it is that sometimes mouse 3 doesn't work so well but that's about it. And I won't be using mouse 3 as often as I used to anymore so I don't see it as a huge problem. Feels good to have a mouse last three years.

>What kind of mouse do you use and are you happy with it?
I use a Logitech G203(I also bought a spare one) since a couple of years, it's cheap, solid and precise.
I used to use an expensive Corsair mouse with those extra keys on the side for MMORPGs and it broke, then I bought a Corsair Ironclaw(slightly less expensive) and the scrolling wheel broke.
I pledged to only buy no-bullshit cheap wired mouse from now on. That is my advice in general.

been using this one for years, same shape just different models
wouldn't say it's cheap since the cord fails every year or two but i'm too used to it to look for alternatives

I used one of these, the G102 variant (same mouse, just for different markets), and a G305 (wireless version of the G203). The scroll wheel started screwing up on the first one, then the left button started double clicking. Got a G203, a year later it started double clicking. The G305 came after that and lasted around six months before it started to double click. I replaced the micro switches myself and it still works great a year later. I still have a spare G203 in a drawer, they used to be like $15.
I did end up buying a wireless Razer Viper. It feels more ergonomic and is more solid than the G305. Supposedly the mouse buttons use some sort of optical sensor to prevent the double clicking issue Logitech mice have, but we'll see...

I use this when I'm not gaming. It feels good except that I wish it had two more buttons for easier web browsing, and that the ball falls out if it isn't laying flat like in the pic.

 No.80502

>>80501
How exactly do you use something like this? As in positioning your hand, you use the palm of your hand to roll the ball and click with your fingers, or do you use use your fingers to move the ball around and then stop to click? Or is there some other way I can't think of?

>>80502
yes, the hand basically just rests over the whole mouse lightly, if I get really tired or doze off while browsing I often click the hell out of the buttons from my hand giving too much pressure.
You roll the ball to move around the screen, but for scrolling up or down pages quickly you actually grip the ball and "twist" it clockwise or counterclockwise, it's pretty neat actually. To my knowledge it's just Kensingtons that have scrolling set up that way however. I have another trackball I gave to my Dad with actual side buttons programmed for scrolling.

Thank you for answering in a post, it clarifies your first post a bit.

Some answers to your questions:

I've used both laser and optical mice and they have a different 'feel' to me. I personally prefer optical. Most people find the biggest difference is that laser works on glass much better than optical.

Infinite scroll is where the mouse wheel can be freely spun without restriction, kind of like a trackball except in one direction. It ends up being like scrolling on a phone, you put a bigger spin and it scrolls farther before it stops.

If you don't need separate macro software it opens your choices up to include much cheaper mice.

It should also be mentioned that depending on how long ago you tried wireless, things might have changed significantly. Much like wireless controllers are now the standard for game consoles, wireless tech in mice have come a long way and almost all the old issues have been resolved.

I've had this happen with two different razer mice. The glue that holds the side grips breaks down somehow and they eventually fall off. I'm sure they could be superglued back on but I've always just ended up going without.

Glued on? How strange. Every mouse I've ever owned has had the sides be part of the body of mouse itself.

Foreshadowing! My mouse's left-click is now double click, which is pretty inconvenient, especially when trying to drag stuff.

Strangely it went away for me, but comes back once in a while. I think at least for me it's related to the drivers or something somehow because nothing changed for the mouse itself. My keyboard would also randomly restart with the computer giving the "new hardware found" sound.
I guess you could mess around with your computer a bit?

NEVER buy Razer products, holy crap. They are way too expensive for the shoddy quality and as far as I know they require you to install proprietary software that requires you to make an account on their services to do something as simple as configure the RGB lights or mouse buttons.
