I have been looking for a mouse that fits my needs for quite a while now. But i feel like i am looking at the wrong spots.
What i want:
- Programmable buttons, at least 8 easily reachable (so not at the top front of the mouse where no finger ever reaches lol), more prefered
- Small-Medium sized mouse
- LIGHT, not 120+ gramms
- Buttons should be pressable without going to the gym and should not wake up my girlfriend next door,...
I am basically looking for a mouse that is as light as a Naga, feels like a Cyborg and has a button layout / shift function / 4d wheel like the Kone.
What i tried:
First real gamer mouse was a Razor Naga. Great mouse actually. Exactly the size and weight i liked, but i hold the mouse with my fingers only (thats considered claw grip, right?), so i was unable to use all the buttons on the thumb. Actually i could barly reach the 6 last ones, and never ever used the first 6 ones.
The second mouse was a Razer Naga Hex. I only ever reached 6 buttons anyways and the hex has a nice empty spot in the middle of those buttons, so i could hold it there and reach all 6 buttons. This mouse actually has no REAL disadvantage but feeling "wrong". Can't describe why, but i just always felt like i wanted something different.
The third try went to the MadCatz/Cyborg Rat 7 MMO edition. Amazingly handy mouse, fits perfectly in my hand (well after adjusting everything, but thats a selling point of this mouse after all). This mouse sadly had the most drawbacks: Laser was crap. Simple as that. Curser jumping all over the screen. The buttons for the thumb where nice, but not perfectly placed and it feeled like i had to use real muscles to actually push them. Razer mice had soft and easy going buttons,... also the Cyborgs buttons where kinda loud.
My current mouse is a Roccat Kone XTD. EasyShift and a 4d mousewheel are the biggest seeling point for me. 20 buttons right there where the fingers should be on a mouse. Since i also own a Roccat Isku FX i can even use the easyShift key on my keyboard and have even more buttons free on the mouse. Pure win?... sadly no.
The Kone is LOUD. And i mean really loud. My girlfriend can actually hear me click trough 2 closed doors (no joke!). During the day we have musik turned on and stuff, so it is not that obvious, but during the night i don't want to have this kind of noise level around. And i am a night person, so i am mainly playing and working at night :-/ Also the buttons need what feels like 2kg pressure to actually be pressed. After just 3 hours of playing my hand started to feel very unconfortable.
Again: I am basically looking for a mouse that is as light as a Naga, feels like a Cyborg and has a button layout / shift function / 4d wheel like the Kone. Does such a wonder exist?
Please,... anyone tell me about a mouse i might have missed. *prays*
MMOs finally replaced social interaction, forced grouping and standing in a line while talking to eachother.
Now we have forced soloing, forced questing and everyone is the hero, without ever having to talk to anyone else. The evolution of multiplayer is here! We won,... right?
