Best gaming mouse for less than 90 bucks?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So christmas is coming! i know it's a bit early, but where I live tech stuff are not really "accessible" so I have to order my stuff from the US, which takes some planning, it's not as easy as going to the store and trying them out and picking the one that suits you the best, so I haven't been keeping up too much the the mice part of stuff because I was more than satisfied with my m60, but I've had that one for more than a year and a half, so I thought why not right? the ones that look like they would suit me the best are the func ms3 and the roccat kone xtd, but I just wanted to know if there are any other interesting products out there that I might not be aware of, so what would you say it's the best mouse for less than 90 bucks?

I would buy a Logitech G600 or Roccat Kone XTD. The Func MS-3 has iffy build quality and quality control.

It really depends what games you want too play with it i would recommend the Logitech G600 for MMOs or games with a ton of key bindings like planetsiders 2 or the M65 for twitch gameplay

Gigabyte M8000X is (imo) the best "budget mouse".

I think that it is all bout what you want form it.

 

From my experience, the SteelSeries Kana is just too good. If you think that a really great mouse will really benefit you, then think about upgrading your skill first, Mice really don't affect the end result.

Razer deathadder I have had one for 3 years know and have dropped it hundreds of times and its fine I love it to death personal my favorite mouse

I find mice to be a very personal thing, depending on how you hold your mouse, I have large hands and use claw grip mostly but I still like big mice. The deathadder is a nice large mouse but doesn't sit as high in the middle as the classic G5 shape. My favorite mouse has to be the G5 shaped series mice. G500s etc. I used a naga for quite some time though and I couldn't imagine playing an MMO without one, still have a brand new one in case another good MMO comes along. Their are so many good gaming mice nowadays I don't think their is a "best" one. Just don't fall for the ermagherd it has over 90000 dpiii's... Mainly a marketing scheme if you ask me. 1600 and below dpi is the sweet spot for anything precise.

Zowie FK

Logitech G400 rev 2(not version 1, it has a worse sensor)

Logitech G400S

Razer Deathadder 2013

 

Razer Deathadder Black Edition (the same mouse as Razer Deathadder 3.5G but with a different finish)

Zowie AM (same as Zowie FK but minor adjustments)

 

Razer Deathadder 3.5G (only good with the latest firmware to remove prediction and/or jitter)

Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0

Razer Abyssus (Like Russian roulette buying this mouse. A ton of them have jitter issues and some are perfect, so I don't recommend them)

 

 

Is your favorite mouse not on this list? Then chances are it is not that good. For example someone mentioned the R.A.T series before and they got Z-axis issues since they use the Philips Twin Eye PLN 2031 sensor (all mice with this sensor has Z-axis issues).

But why isn't mice like any Steelseries or the Logitech G9x, or the Logitech G500 on the list? Because they have acceleration that can't be removed. Some mice I don't have on the list also has tracking issues and/or angle snapping. Oh and high DPI does not make a mouse good. I didn't include all mice with flawless sensors by the way. There are a few other ones that are good but for one reason or another did not make the list.

Naos 8200 is amazing and isn't in the list

It uses the Avago 9800 sensor so it has jitter (gets worse the higher DPI you use) and slightly positive acceleration (seems to be inconsistent acceleration as well). Therefore it is not on the list.

 

Not sure why people keep recommending the R.A.T 7 either. It has Z-axis issues so every time you lift and put the mouse down your mouse cursor will move. You can check it out yourself by lifting the mouse 5-10mm and then put it down, and then repeating that quickly. Your mouse will move away from the original position while a mouse with a perfect sensor (such as the Deathadder 2013 or Logitech G400S) will stay in the same position plus/minus a few mm.

I think a lot of people recommend mice simply based on "this is the mouse I use so therefore it is good" or "this mouse is really expensive, so it is probably good".

You say that the G500s sensor is good yet its not on the list?
