Which wireless mouse?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My Logitech G700s' wireless capabilities died many years ago, but the annoyingness of the cable constantly falling down the hole in my desk and pulling the mouse with it has rather come to a head. As great of a mouse as it is, I cannot live with it being wired any longer. I am once again asking for your suggestion support.

 

What I liked about my G700s:

  • Large and ergonomic: I like mice I can fit my hand around without my fingers touching the mousemat. If it's small enough to grip firmly on the underside with the ends of my fingers flat to the base, it's too small for me.
  • Heavy-ish: Likely a result of being an older gaming wireless mouse, but I have always liked the heavier feeling of the mouse.
  • Ball-bearing style "unlockable" mouse wheel: looking around this seems to be fairly common among gaming mice now. But it's a must-have since it's great for web browsing and weapon change spazzing.
  • It has four programmable buttons on the side, with internal memory to store the programs: This has been very useful since I use multiple operating systems on the same machine and the internal memory has meant I don't need to set the mouse up every time I boot to a different OS. Two buttons is all I need really since I have only ever programmed two of them at a time.

My middle finger is 10.5cm from the center of the knuckle joint to my finger tip, knuckle side-to-side width (center to center of joints again) is 6.5cm, palm length is 8cm.

 

Not really got an upper limit to spending. Under £100 GBP would be nice though.

 

One of my earliest posts here was asking about mouse purchases. It seemed to do me well then :D

Thanks for before, and thanks again for any suggestions!

Two of the best wireless gaming mice right now are the Logitech G Pro Wireless and the Razer Viper Ultimate. Those are both above your said price limit, but they are arguably the best mice right now.

they indeed are great mice, but they lack the weight and the "unlockable" scroll wheel

They do both look good. Just a shame about the fact that they are both lightweight mice. They seem to have similar measurements to my current one though which may well be good for my hands.

I’d recommend the Rival 650. The macro configuration is great but, it can be a heavy mouse depends on what you’re used to.

The razer mamba wireless is a good wireless mouse. It is 105 grams and for large hands.

The thing that can be negative with that mouse (Mamba TE/ Mamba Wireless) is that it’s too light and the sensor is lagging behind (For me)

i wouldn't classify the razer mamba wireless as a "very light" mouse as it still weighs over 100 grams
