Hey guys how are you, while my question/topic may look too direct and/or dramatic/sensitive, i posted it because I HAD IT :fou:  with searching for a proper gaming mouse. (1st worlds problems i know lol)
2013 will have some of the best games out there, and i am tired on playing on my 10$ genious office bs mouse, imagine playing Battlefield 3 with it.
Some are too big, some too small, some have good dpi some dont, while there may not be such thing as a "perfect mouse" all i am asking is for someone to do,
5 best gaming mouses out there at the moment, do a 1-10 score on each of the following criteria and maybe write a word or two why this and not that and so on.
Comfortability
DPI (higher the better)
drivers (complexity)
Maybe somehing else if you think of it?
Have in mind i need a gaming mouse under 100$ as anything more for a mouse is just too much for me at the moment
(may go a LITTLE over if the mouse is really good)!

THANKS!
Hope it doesnt take a lot of your time pls help! :bounce:

hello, basically while i am new to the forums (hello world!),i am NOT new to mouses and how/why they work. It all comes down to what you need it for in the end.

When it comes to a GAMING mouse (that's what you need yes?) the criteria you chose are on the point,and i will try not to write a novel length reply by the time i'm done.

These are the TOP 5 gaming mouses on the market at the moment, like you asked i will rate it from 1-10 although i might add some extra info:

About DPI: Usually everything over 4000 is considered pro gaming mouse speed, while 1200-2600 is above average and enough,althought this is open for debate.

Logitech G500
-Comfortability: 8.5 (more is better)
-Maxiumum DPI: 5700 (adjustable)
-Drivers complexity: 7 (more is worse)
-Buttons are sitting in proper places and are not disrupting finger movement like some other mouses do.
-Good for all gaming genres
-Get it here: http://amzn.to/XbZEFP

CM Storm Sentinel Advance II
-Comfortability: 9.5 (has an adjustable weight system.)
-Maximum DPI: 200 - 8200 (adjustable
-Drivers complexity: 6 (should take 10-20 minutes to get familiar instead of being on the go)
-8 programmable buttons
-Good for all gaming genres
-Get it here: http://amzn.to/XbZEFP

Razer DeathAdder 2013
-Comfortability: 9.5 (Ergonomic right-handed design, although there is a left hand version as well.)
-Maximum DPI: 6400dpi (adjustable)
-Drivers complexity: 8
-Good for all gaming genres
-Get it here: http://amzn.to/12tKZcJ

Razer Naga 2012 Expert MMO Gaming Mouse
-Comfortability: 8
-Maximum DPI: 5600 (adjustable)
-Driver Complexity: 8
-Optimized for MMO games but of course can play other games fairly well.
-Comes with 17 MMO-optimized buttons
-Get it here: http://amzn.to/XOLaf1

CM Storm Xornet
-Comfortability:9.5
-Maximum DPI: 500, 1000 and 2000 (adjustable)
-Driver Complexity:9
-5 mouse buttons plus 2 fix function buttons
-Get it here: http://amzn.to/YeOCLS

Hope this helped you out a little bit, the ULTIMATE one does not exist at the moment, all of these simply try to compete with eachother but i hope the ratings,
as well as extra comments helped a bit. Didn't take me a long time to write this because i was thinking about which mouse should i get anyway and did the
research a bit before you asked it.
I will personally go with the deathadder 2013, as i like the razer mouse looks and feeling overall, if i couldn't afford that, i would go with the CM Storm as it has awesome specs and is fairly cheap, your preference might be different! Peace!

THAT was what i was looking for! To be honest i never thought anyone would bother to write it like i asked, expected people to be like "oh this one is best * slap affiliate link*" and leave it at that. Appreciate the help! I heard razer naga had a double clicking problem? There is a topic for that thank god in the general discussion section in case you encounter it, someone posted it . As for my decision i will get the CM Storm Xornet, the last on your list as i don't need 30+ buttons, all i need is a decent DPI and to feel natural in your hands, so i will get that one! My friend has the Logitech G500 and while its an awesome mouse its kind of too big for my hand lol.
Thank you mate , just ordered it , cant wait! :hello:  :pt1cable:

Toms has this article on the front page: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/g9x-blackwidow-tour...

It has the Logitech G9x as the top, granted it is not all mice, but ones that are easy to travel with.

I personally have liked the Logitech G700, but based on your comment about mice being too big, I'm betting the G9x is best for you.

As far as the list of driver complexity (higher being worse), not all complexities are without benefits. I've been partial to Logitech's software because its Lua scripting abilities. This allows me to build logic into my macro like scripts.

aaah didnt see to check that out thanks, about the g9x i've seen it before when i did the research myself, it doesnt seem too bad, i just somehow dont like the looks of it, its too ...boxy? And about the g700, that one is off the hook and i got that one for my brothers PC, it did seem expensive but he likes it and his hands are bigger :D  Thank you as well :D

To some yes, younger people mostly, since they think that if it looks cool its what they should have you know?

Logitech is a good brand of a gaming mouse. Like Logitech G9X. You can reach up to 5700 DPI if you download the latest software. Very affordable. Just want to add it on your <a href="www.***/top-gaming-mouse">top gaming mouse</a> list.
March 12, 2013 2:59:58 AM

I would go with Razer Deathadder. They have 2 pretty popular models which are specifically used for gaming. Logitech has a wireless one for gaming, I think it's called G700. They all have high DPI which is important with programmable buttons. There are a lot of gaming mice available on the market, never really seen one more than $100 though.

This article might help. It compares different gaming mice:

I need to look for a <a href="http://www.squidoo.com/top-gaming-mouse">top gaming mouse</a> to replace my old one. I want try a new type of gaming mouse for a better game quality. I can improve my reflexes if the mouse would be specifically for gaming. I can do a lot more techniques.
April 10, 2013 12:16:42 PM

The G500 is the best however it is very fragile. Drop it more than once and who knows. I have about half a dozen of them. I finally got fed up and tried a Gigabyte GM-M8000X then a steelseries sensei and a Moinix Naos 8200 which all still work but i'm switching back to the G500.....Maybe I should carpet.

Hello I have a question and you seem like you know your mice :)  http://www.roccat.org/Products/ hows that guy look? it says like 8000 DPI and a bunch of other awesome words that makes me wanna throw my money at them. Whats your take on that one?

also check this one out please: http://steelseries.com/us/products/mice/steelseries-sen... this one is THE MLG mouse man how can it not be on the list?

Also what is scripting and stuff for mice - and is it hard? I wanna be the best at gaming that I can be and I don't understand this. Any info to help clear things up would be awesome. thanks.

Im on 40$ budget what can u suggest ?
June 4, 2013 7:48:00 AM

i think the corsair m65 is very good. It looks like a prototype mouse, it feels like something you've made for yourself, look at the bottom off the mouse and all you'll see is alluminium no stickers or writing. The only writing on it is the corsair logo on the top of the mouse. Even the scroll wheel is alluminium, it's got the most alluminium on a mouse i've seen, i don't know about it compared to the thermaltake mouse. The programming software is excellent, you can assign applications to a profile and they will automatically load and it works very well. You can also program the mouse itself, assign a profile to the hardware, enabling hardware playback. It's also 8200DPI, it feels and looks like a comfortable and relatively simple mouse, it has a precision button, basically it's like a RAT 7 mouse without all the problems.

I thought to myself i will never need to use 8200DPI in a game, but in BFBC2 i did with the tank, the sensitivity is very low, putting the sensitivity up to 8200DPI on the mouse meant that i didn't have to move my mouse the whole way across the mat to get a 180 degree turn.

i had a problem with mouses (all were logitech) with the left button not working correctly (double click), 1 lasted me 8 months, another one 1 year, the last one was 6 months (all in warranty of course) until i bought the MX518, have been playing with it and it works like a champ! i do at least 10k clicks of the left button a day (i have so far 2,733,229 clicks with it, have a click counter in excel that counts every click i do), it has adjustable DPI too, i play mostly MMOs, but i do FPS and action games, i play almost any kind of games (all but sports, dont like those) and im pleased with this one and the durability, my bro just have the same problem as i had with the mouses and i will get him one too.

The Razer Ouroboros gaming mouse is the ultimate gaming mouse! It has 2 tracking sensors and 8200 dpi! If you can afford it. Price; $200!

This really helped me out a lot too thanks the world could use more people like you

I would go with a Steelseries sensei of whichever type you prefer. They are the most comfortable mice I have used, and I have used the gambit. Great build quality and precision is a huge plus but the software isn't as "flashy" as some, although it does have the important functions.

Or check out the Roccat Kone XTD. Those are also very nice and not as pricey as an over-hyped Razer. Me and two of my friends have had poor experiences with Razer. I had an issue with the Ouroboros failing to track well and my friends both had issues with death adders breaking under normal use. Because of this I could never recommend Razer to anyone.
