Razer Deathadder 2013 vs Corsair M65 vs Steelseries sensei pro?

Hello,
I am looking to buy a new gaming mouse and I am stuck between three:
The Razer Deathadder 2013
The Corsair M65
The Steelseries Sensei Pro

I am going to be using the mouse for FPS games but also other games and general usage. All of the mice above are in my price range however the Steelseries one is more expensive than the other two. I don't need a ridiculous dpi range and the sniper button on the M65 doesn't really appeal to me however I am typing on a Corsair K70 right now and I love the style and build quality.
My main factors in which mouse I choose are:
1) Build quality (very important as I've heard Razer have awful build quality?)
2) Comfort (I will be using the mouse for long periods of time)
3) Features (Such as dpi and sensors)

Which mouse would you recommend and are there any better options instead?

Thanks very much.

    Okay thanks I'll take that into consideration
  2. Best answer
    Steelseries have always had the best quality and the best support for gamers and most pros use them

    Okay thanks, I have been leaning towards steelseries but it is £20 more than the other options so I'm debating whether it would be worth it?
  4. see what the price on the Steelseries Ikari laser is if it is available

    It's £47 which is within my budget but quite a lot of the reviews I have seen are complaining about poor build quality?
  6. optical has better build quality but lacks the laser and the lcd on the bottom of the mouse
  7. Forget Razer. I've a Razer Imperator and after a year or so the tracking has gone haywire. Every 5-10s it just stops tracking. Completely. No cursor movement until it wants. Also takes ~5 mins of constantly moving the mouse around after windows boots before tracking will start. Did some research & from what I've seen this is a prominent issue with Razer mice. This isn't even mentioning the issues with individual axis' if you lift the mouse up. If it weren't for this I'd recommend it but it's a deal breaker bigtime. I'm looking for a new mouse as a result and the M65 & that Anker mouse look nice.

    Any big issues with general use/comfort on either of those 2? The former seems to have excellent reviews.

    Thanks for the reply. I am leaning either towards the steelseries sensei pro or the M65 but I haven't looked into anker mice yet, though I definitely will.
  9. As much as Razer is generally a brand to stay away from, the Deathadder 2013 is no joke. It's a fantastic mouse and, out of those three options, I would recommend it. I would always choose an optical sensor over a laser sensor because it does not have acceleration that is found in laser.
    This is important for FPS games as acceleration can mess up your aim, which is why an optical sensor is more precise.
    For another option, the Corsair M40 will match your keyboard and be a really nice mouse to use.

    The only beef i have with that mouse is that it's small more or less that's a personal prefrence.
  11. Really depends how big your hand it.
    Something bigger would be the Logitech G400s: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/logitech-mouse-910003589
    For something even larger, the Steelseries Rival is one of the largest mouse I've seen: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/steelseries-mouse-62271
    Another good quality mouse that is fairly large, but not as large as the Rival, would be the Zowie FK but I couldn't seem to find it anywhere.
  12. theese zowie mouses look like copies of steelseries mouses
