for not opening another thread ,i will ask here
just hit buy button for this mouse
http://www.corsair.com/vengeance-m60...ing-mouse.html
i heard a lot of good things about it,and what convinced me was the aluminium frame on top it is build.
i started to hate cheap made mouses clasified as gaming mouse.
i looked around and the looks,the reviews ,made me choose this Vengeace M60 mouse.
i just hope that is what i look for so long time
a solid mouse,something that feels like an extension of your hand.

Uses the same sensor as the Xai/G500/G700 which has a mild positive acceleration over ~1.5 m/s. Quite noticable on the logitech mice, barely imo on the Xai.

Currently I'm using a Zowie AM, quite pleased with it.

Btw, Logitech removed prediction from the G400 on their newer batches.

Great list of mice and their flaws, but also lists a few mice which are practically perfect:

Just a heads up for those people with a CM Storm Spawn:

Quote:
Beta Firmware Released:

http://www.mediafire.com/?axdq4ycvc3xavwd

DPI settings:


Dpi1 = 800dpi (old version also 800dpi but interpolated)
Dpi2 = 1600dpi (old version: 1800dpi)
Dpi3 = 4000dpi (old version: 3500dpi)
ADNS-3090 Resolution Enhancement:
http://www.avagotech.com/cs/Satellit...&ssbinary=true

Testing it right now works fine on my SteelSeries Qck.

Remember this is a beta firmware, use at your own risk.

Any way to change polling rate to 250 in Win 7 x64 without using test mode and clicking etc... ?

EDIT: Nevermind, test watermark removed.

Where can I find the 1.28 NDC and 1.08 drivers?

Using Razer Deathadder as it is one of the very few decent left handed mice out there.
I feel that we lefties are pretty screwed when it comes to real left handed mice.

It's getting better for left handed people since for some reason ambidextrous mice are gaining popularity.

Polling rate 250 without using the test signing will be near enough impossible unless your mouse drivers support it.

If the mouse or it's drivers support it it should work without the test signing.

Ambidextrous is not the same/good as an actual real left handed mouse IMHO.

Just got this yesterday, I've been waiting for it to complete my main rig. Despite its look, it has a very solid feel, feels heavy due to its alu base, the LED can display up to seven colours, with the option of various LED in different colours simultaneously. Polling rate goes from 125Hz -> 250Hz -> 500Hz -> 1000Hz, with DPI from 800 to 8200. You can adjust DPI on the fly, but it's limited to 5000DPI, 8200DPI can only be set from the Level 10M control panel. Honestly, 8200DPI is way too zippy, too fast even for multi-display EF setup. Maybe I'm too used to my old Logitech G9's 3200DPI, but that's where I have it right now. If you have small hands, like moi, then it can take a little getting used to. As I'd been using the G9, the Levl 10 M feels a tad big. Here're a couple of pics of it.....enjoy!

A shot of it just out of the box, note the braided cable and cool USB2.0 plug with cap.



Edit - The palmrest can be adjusted up or down, as well as sideways for a more customized fit. Also, with its driver and suite installed, pressing the 'Back' or 'Forward' button would be followed by an OSD of that action, just so you know .

Wow, that's a lot to take in.

Anyway, I just brought the Logitech MX M950 and tracking seems to be fairly good as with my old laser mouse I would often get erratic jumps.

So overall, is the mouse I brought any decent?

I owed the first one, it is such a good mouse but the one I'm using now I genuinely think it's the best out there.

The Corsair M90


The buttons take a bit of getting used to but after a few weeks it was so easy to use.

I thought it's been released already, I mean, I recall seeing a very similar looking CM mouse while I was getting the Level 10M mouse. I'd only glanced at it, but I recall seeing this grill like top with red backlight on the cover.....I could be wrong and it may be an earlier model, but it sure as heck looked like it!

Still using my Zowie atm

The new Roccat SAVU seems to be a good mouse as well. Simple but effective, just a very solid sensor like the CM Spawn.

Been using the CM Sentinel Advance II for a few days now.

Pros:
Glides incredibly well
Feels very well designed and engineered
Suited to palm grip
Buttons feel solid
Profiles through software
Programmable macro's
Nice software and OLED screen.

Cons:

Supplied with spare feet which are very small compared to the size of the mouse. My feeling is they probably wear out quick.
Mouse wheel feels clunky and cheap when compared to the rest of the product
8200 DPI defo overkill
My grip has a tendency to move from palm to claw in heavy gaming and this mouse feels much more comfortable in a palm grip. So I will have to see if that becomes an issue.

Overall it's a solid 8 out of 10 for me.

Of course, for a mouse costing 50 eur I'd rather not have any complaints... Still, it's better than any mouse I've owned, and I've had Logitech MX518, G500, Steelseries Ikari and MS WMO.
