New Mouse and Keyboard / Cost sensitive suggestions

angerbeaverangerbeaver Member UncommonPosts: 1,101
My mouse has been annoying for a while. It would make a noise like being unplugged and plugged back in, it disappears until i manually plug it in other times, or the mouse cursor jumps to a random spot. All of which are annoying when playing video games. Wasn't a real problem until recently in Wolcen.

I would also like to replace keyboard, but more for style and to get something new. Had this one forever. It has a burn CD key on it lol. This would depend on price of the mouse. I can always get the new Keyboard at another time.

Both I'd like RGB, but it isn't super important. The mouse I would like to have programmable buttons, but again not the end of the world without. Majority of my use would be video games though and I never had lighting or programmable on either. Reliable and price are the two primary. Trying to keep it under 100 CAD.

I was thinking Death Adder V2 for 90$ CAD. Not sure if anyone knows of a better one on sale?

    I don't know if Deathadder v2 is worth the extra 40 CAD it would cost you over DeathAdder Elite.

    With that said, picking a mouse is about your personal preference.

    Yeah, I've only ever had some Microsoft mouse so I don't know what my comfort would be like, but if people can suggest the price vs performance part I can start there.

    I took the Elite, I didn't realize it had 3 options on the page. $40 CAD extra for a mouse I wont use 80% of the features seems useless. Thanks for pointing that out lol

    $90 for a mouse is not my idea of cost sensitive.

    I have a Razer Death Adder and it's garbage.  It's the only mouse I've ever found that can't track properly on the surface where I place my mouse.  I don't know if the V2 would be totally different, as I haven't looked into it.

    Logitech would be the go-to brand, I would think, although in my opinion Corsair has caught up to them, and I have had very good luck with my M65 and K70.

    The price goes up very steeply as you move up the product line, and the returns definitely diminish.

    Razer is - either you love them or hate them; there is no middle ground with that company. Personally I have had poor luck with them, so I don’t recommend them, but a lot of people swear by them.

    There are smaller or lesser known companies that do well: SteelSeries, Red Dragon, etc.

    The Logitech G502 Lightspeed is the best mouse I have ever owned.

    Razer has some great looking products and when they work they are great BUT the quality on them is total garbage and if you use it daily for long periods you can almost expect to have issues within 1 year.  Had two razer naga's.

    Logitech is better, I have a g600 and while it has lasted longer, about 3 years, than the naga's it is now having issues with double clicking and also the mouse will bug out and cursor will just stop freeze and stutter until I unplug it and plug it back in.  It is not as good as the naga's when using it on the arm of my couch as the tracking is sensitive to being lifted compared to say the naga's.

    The g600 is bigger, wider than the naga's.


    Last but not least razer needs synapse if you want to get full functionality of your razer hardware and not all their devices support the same synapse version..

    ......beside wtf were they thinking with making synapse a requirement and needing to be online and have a damned account for it...lol

    For kb  currently using a corsair K55 RGB and while I have had no issues lots of people on their forums have had problems with it and other keyboards from them.  Like I said though I have I had no issues yet and got it cheaply on sale so I am happy with it.  It's not a mechanical keyboard but almost kind of feels like one if you compare it to a membrane keyboard.


    My wife has a redragon mouse and has no issues with it so far, it came in a combo pack of mouse and keybaord for like 40$CAD.  I bought it in December 2, 2018 and still working fine both of them. The texture of the mouse, the plastic itself, feels rough when you compare it to the slick feel of say the naga's or g600.


    My boy is using the redragon keyboard, from the combo pack, and has no issues with it. Has decent options built into the keyboard for lighting, no special "synapse" like garbage to run either, via a FN button. It's still working great too though doesn't feels as good to type on as my corsair K55 and feels like a membrane keyboard though one of pretty good quality.


    While logitech is pretty good their prices are not and over so ridiculous for what they offer...I mean take the g502 lightspeed..200$CAD for 1 mouse...lmao...  yeah.

    That's a wired mouse. Otherwise it looks great.
    The original poster didn't specifically request a wireless mouse.  Unless the wire is a significant problem, there's no reason to even consider wireless.  Wired is better in every other way, from lower latency to better reliability to lower cost.

    The latency difference is so small that it doesn't matter unless you're a pro gamer looking to get every possible edge.

    Imho the issue with wireless mouses is that if you have only one mouse and it runs out of batteries you're screwed, but if you have some old mouse that you can use as a backup should you run out of batteries then wireless is just as good to use as a wired one.

    I seem to recall a study where wireless gaming mice actually about the same latency as  wireless, although the same could not be said for consumer/office oriented products

    Everything mentioned about battery life and signal interference and other issues still stand though. Unless you absolutely can’t do it, Wired is going to be better.
