The PMW sensor shows a lotta promise. On another note, it seems ASUS has also jumped on the optical mice bandwagon. Before I start this list, I feel inclined to mention I missed a handful of other mice above CPI with decent optical sensors. Aesthetically, it resembles the G more than the G and GS, but the ergonomics are about the same. Like the G, it has an onboard processor. What it has going for it over the G aside from the price is it also has the ability to handle IPS, in case the Flash ever becomes a real person.
Firmware can still ruin a mouse with a perfectly good sensor. Nonetheless, it helps to know where to start looking, right? Microsoft Microsoft has long since ceased production of its most famous mice, but they remain a favorite among low-sens gamers everywhere. Their products can be found refurbished and maybe somewhat upgraded from relatively obscure sellers.
The IntelliMouse 1. All current Zowie mice feature a CPI cap of or less, limiting their use firmly to lower-mid and low sens gamers. Every other Zowie mouse so far is CPI. Designed for gamers who want a small mouse they can claw or fingertip grip. Early batches of the FK had a coating issue but this has been ironed out. They resemble the Deathadder or IME 3. Mionix Another well-respected manufacturer of optical mice, Mionix is notable for having CPI optical mice with no tracking issues, and very good ergonomics.
Razer Yes, yes, I know. More cheap, fragile products that will break if you breathe on them. Still, they DO have mice which fit the specified criteria for this compilation. Razer has produced multiple versions of the Abyssus. All of them have an Avago-branded optical sensor. A caveat: The earlier Abyssus cannot update its firmware, and some of the first batches shipped with older firmware that has jitter issues, as Arie has noted before.
Flawless tracking. Aside from jitter on some cloth pads with older firmware, is an ergonomic, precise mouse with an Avago optical sensor. Features two side buttons for browsing or macros. No further explanation needed; is otherwise identical. Has different firmware but is otherwise basically the same mouse. The original Kinzu, despite being an optical mouse, actually had hardware acceleration. The V2 and V2 Pro, however, do not. Ambidextrous, CPI. Its role has since been roughly taken up by the Rival.
Roccat A rising star in the peripherals world, Roccat makes a range of mousemats, keyboards, headsets, and mice. Rather compact. Ambidextrous mouse with up to CPI. Logitech A long-running, well-respected name in the peripherals industry.
Notable for having very sturdy mice with good ergonomics and tracking. Two side buttons round it out. Features a thumb rest, something of a rarity amongst gaming mice. Cyborg Gaming Most well-known for their R. It lacks some of the ergonomic features of the later mice in the lineup, but this is forgivable if in your eyes, a precise mouse a gaming mouse makes, or else why would you be here?
Corsair A solid brand wherever it goes, Corsair has been dipping its toes into the gaming peripherals market for a few years now. Otherwise about the same. Funny how mouse ergonomics have changed over the years. A caveat: The USB report rate is unspecified. Features two additional side buttons. It somewhat resembles an Ikari. Has two side buttons. Ozone Gaming A European brand with some notable products, including a couple of optical mice.
Gamdias Relatively obscure, new gaming peripherals brand founded in that tries to theme itself aesthetically on Greco-Roman mythology. But does that marketing translate into real performance? It has side buttons on both sides, one set usable at a time. One side button on each side. Also features two side buttons per side and adjustable weights. Sharkoon Sharkoon makes a variety of products for gaming, from cases to headsets. Their mice are unremarkable, some even bad, but as some are opticals, I will list them.
Has a pair of side buttons and strongly resembles the Deathadder and Raptor LM3. However, glossy surfaces make this an iffy choice. Sentey One of the many smaller brands out there who make cases, PSUs, mousemats, headsets and the like. Ambidextrous, shaped somewhat like the Razer Abyssus, so likely reasonably comfortable.
Has adjustable weights. The only optical Sentey with extra buttons. Wide, right-handed ergonomics. Thermaltake Most known for their cases, but they manufacture a variety of PC components. Most of their gaming mice are laser-based, but they have a few opticals. The CPI is preset between , , and Comes with a weight system.
A4Tech Somewhat respected company based in China that makes computer peripherals. Their opticals are, at least at a glance, credible, ranging from CPI and all sporting Hz. They also have some preconfigured macros with some extra buttons. All of them are CPI, have Hz polling rates, and have kilobits of onboard memory. Their other traits vary. The first listed is ambidextrous, and the third is mostly ambidextrous save for the two side buttons. The second and fourth are right-handed.
Here I will list a number of no-name brands that sell cheap products which may or may not be worthwhile. Purchase at your own risk. That, and the novelty might just make them fun enough. If nothing else, many of them have the redeeming factor of being so cheap they can be considered expendable. Might be fun to mess around with one just to see what it can do.
Adesso The iMouse G3 has a CPI optical sensor, and is ambidextrous, save for the side buttons, which are right-handed only. Polling rate unspecified. Most of its gaming mice are dollar junkpiles with indeterminate sensors and polling rates. AULA Fond of spider-based aesthetics. It appears to be one of the major Southeast Asian OEMs since many brands seem to rebrand their products.
Not a bad choice for a rookie starter mouse. Nevertheless, I will list what I found here. Merdia Appears to be one of the OEMs for about half the mice listed here. Rosewill Rosewill is a reputable enough PC component and accessory manufacturer known for providing good value. Despite the millimeter length, the clever design of the mouse means even someone with small hands can use it well.
Buttons can be actuated from the front of the mouse to the middle. I mean, it IS a Logitech mouse. The body is mostly made of a very durable matte composite plastic which seems impervious to absorbing skin oils, and the mouse buttons require some force to actuate. Although the two side buttons next to the right click are mapped by default to be CPI up and down, which is convenient. Oh, and if the LED annoys you It annoyed me.
Too bright, and right in the eyes. Nopenopenope… Stop look at me like that. Quote from: Grim Fandango on Thu, 13 March , Tried 2 zowie ec1 eVo cl's and a an FK All three had scroll wheel issues. No more zowie for me, back to the drawing board for a new mouse. I don't like the wheel on those either so I can't really say I'm all that surprised.
What about Steelseries Kana v2 or a Rival perhaps? The Rival is not toooo unlike the EC1 in shape, feels a bit different but meant to be 'ergonomic. I really liked the sensor on it too. Scroll wheel on these are much better than the Zowie, IMO. I much prefer it the Steelseries ones.
Steelseries is definitely in the mix to try, especially now. The ec1 was just big enough to not be comfortable. I'm sure I would have gotten used to it if I used one for more than 2 weeks. In the end, that worked out for the better. The sensors in the evos were great for me--no issues there. I also loved the lift off distance because I do pick up the mouse as a die hard low sensitivity gamer.
Can't speak for the FK as I only plugged it in to test the scroll wheel. Time to take another look at vun's thread. I just got the eVo ec1 and I'm a fanboy for life I can't say enough good things about this freaking thing. Quote from: ApocalypseMaow on Tue, 22 April , Quote from: osi on Tue, 22 April , I thought the Gs had too light switches, and on the opposite end the Kinzu v2 Pro has too heavy switches. I really liked how it felt but I just prefer something ambidextrous since I only use fingertips to aim.
Rival should be first prio, it seems to me. I may just bite the bullet anyways and deal with the less than ideal color scheme, I really like my FK LF: Mr. I much prefer the older. Quote from: t2russo on Wed, 23 April , Zowie EC1. I've had it for less than a month. Emailed Zowie but no reply back yet. Did you guys use the form thing on the zowie website? From my experience and what I've seen on various forums it can start peeling anywhere.
If you need a direct email to Zowie assuming you waited business days PM me and I'll send it to you. Quote from: the1onewolf on Fri, 25 April , Quote from: ajunakey on Sat, 26 April , I gave in and ordered a Evo EC1. Quote from: dustinhxc on Thu, 01 May , Zowie EC1evo white. Quote from: MJ45 on Thu, 01 May , JackCY Posts: Quote from: Grim Fandango on Tue, 31 December , I'm a huge fan of the IE 3.
The bigger size and better sensor are tugging at my wallet. Perfect weight, great tracking, tiny LOD, great buttons, great cord Can't wait for the sensor to implemented, as I could use a smidge more DPI. Quote from: daerid on Fri, 11 July , I dunno what's wrong with your particular EC1, by mine the CL is absolutely flawless.
I love where the side buttons are, and the scroll wheel is sublime. Anyways, here's the specs on the new FK1 vs the FK EC1 buggy wheel, does not always register single wheel up because there is some misalignment. If you pinch the wheel with finger tips or even just nails, pull it lightly even barely up and rotate it it stops to register scrolling. EC1 has side buttons so high that if you place your thumb only as high as needed above the surface then you cannot reach the buttons, where as on IME3.
EC1 also has an extra edge below the buttons, I bet someone complained that they clicked them accidentally and Zowie made the buttons way up high out of thumb reach and protected them by an extra edge. Where IME3. Will look into Mionix Naos because it may be way more adjustable and able to correct these things via settings.
Also slightly bigger in some parts, no idea if fatter. Edit: And I suspect a lag on the EC1 dpi, might be on dpi too. Just gamed on dpi with adjusted windows setting and it seemed ok, only more sensitive because dpi vs dpi that I'm used to from IME3. And had to change my hold so I can get to the side buttons, it's definitely less fat on the right side than IME3.
It's like a baby version of IME3.
The bottom of the mouse has a tapered edge with assists with lifting the mouse for repositioning, while the top of the mouse has a bump that rests comfortably with palm, fingertip, or claw grips. The mouse has a matte finish that feels great with an RGB G logo beneath the scroll wheel. The wired version weighs in at a svelte 90 grams with an optional 10g weight while the wireless model comes in at grams with the same 10g option.
The buttons are rated for 20 million clicks and there have been no reports of any double click issues or failures that have plagued other mice. The scroll wheel clicks in confidently with no accidental inputs with a slightly tactile click on scrolling up or down.
The 2 side buttons are in an easy to reach place, with a shallow click while not getting in the way of a normal grip. There have been varying reports about the Logitech G with some people receiving mice with a wobbly and rattling scroll wheel.
The mouse has a 4. The Logitech G includes the best sensor on the market, the Pixart pmw Tracking is great at all DPI levels and tracks precisely over slow and fast movements. The sensor is free from any noticeable acceleration and angle snapping. Lift off distance is low and adjustable within the software. The venerable Rocketjumpninja ranks the G at 1 of his top 40 gaming mice list calling it close to perfect.
Both of these mice are highly lauded and the only thing that separates these mice from our top recommendation is a preference in shape. Another great option — The DeathAdder Elite is perfect for people with larger hands. The DeathAdder Elite weighs g, which is light for a mouse its size.
The iconic shape of the mouse has inspired many lookalikes with slight curves and elongated design that works for all grip types. The sides feature a rubber that maintains grip while lifting and moving the mouse. Both Logitech and Razer are the top of the industry with customization options.
Techspot reported three out of a dozen DeathAdders Chromas that they purchased failed. The Logitech Pro features all the same sensors and software that the G sports in a smaller, ambidextrous shell. With a height of The buttons use the same advanced button tensioning in the Logitech G but the force required to click on the Pro is much lower.
What this means is that this mouse might skew more towards more click-spammy games like MOBAs but it seems like a lot of FPS pros prefer this mouse. This is a great choice for gamers who prefer an ambidextrous design or smaller mouse. The Revel has a basic ambidextrous shape resembling the Steel Series Sensei that works with all grips.
It weighs in at 85g and measures The stiffness is important in preventing FPS players from accidentally firing giving away their position but to also provide that hard tactile response when firing. Great for shooters — The Zowie FK series is the best ambidextrous mouse made for shooters.
Great for shooters — The Zowie EC series is the best ergonomic mouse made for shooters. Both lines feature Huano switches that have a higher required click force that better suits FPS. They can still work for MOBAs but just know that it can be a little more tiring. The Zowie FK Series features a low profile ambidextrous design with buttons on both sides for left or right-handed gaming. The equivalent Logitech mouse would be the Logitech Pro.
The Logitech G is the equivalent to the EC series. The G is tailor made for Mobas with all the same internals as the g with a different shape. The Logitech G is marketed as a mouse purpose built for MOBA, it features the same tension-spring buttons as the G with a rated 20 million click lifetime, with the same great Pixart sensor.
The G is slightly cheaper though so take your pick. MMOs prioritize mice that can store macros onto multiple buttons to streamline their gameplay. Advanced search bounce or buckle? Welcome, Guest. Please login or register. Did you miss your activation email? News: Have you read the geekhack TOS lately? Recieved my replacement mouse today. From a quick use standpoint, the scrolling issue seems to be eliminated. Cannot replicate the issue with the new mouse.
The steps feel more pronounced that the previous as well. Also the thumb buttons on the left are a bit more back compared to the deathadder that i'm used to. They also press in deeper. The old FK did not used to have this problem, so probably something in the coating process has changed since then. The scroll wheel issues with the EVO's can be replicated by turning the mouse upside down and scrolling, or pinching and lifting the mouse and scrolling. For a lot of people this will not be an issue during normal use, but it just illustrates how the wheel has enough "play" to be moved to a position where scrolling is not registered.
The Zowie's do suffer from a slight delay due to using non-native DPI values, where interpolation supposedly changes the feel on some of the settings. Like any other mouse, I would only recommend them after making a potential buyer aware of these problems. Mouse Guide 2.
