^ thanks, had a hunch that would be a good start
Got the Rival. Haven't actually played anything yet but I can immediately feel the difference in cursor smoothness and precision vs. my previous mouse (Logitech M235 wireless).
Takes a bit of getting used to though as I've always had EPP / acceleration on before
EDIT: played a bit of Doom and The Division.
Aiming while circle-strafing is notably better on-the-mark now and everything in general feels more precise and effortless.
Using 1000 DPI, no angle snapping or acceleration (duh), 1000 Hz polling. Did a brief "Paint test" too and there's no noticeable jitter on 1000 DPI.
Cursor precision is perhaps slightly worse already than @ 500 DPI but for the price and everyday casual gaming nothing major and you can easily toggle sensitivity with the switch button.
Minor gripe is the scroll wheel, it's rickety. Works but given the overall solid build quality is a bit of a sore thumb to stick out. My 2 cents.
Depends on how low your sensitivity is. At 1000 dpi your max tracking speed will drop substantially with the Rival 100.
I've still M65 RGB and I hated that mouse,if you have smaller hands that's perfect,but if yours hands are larger then good luck with that mouse,this sniper switch has caused me only headache and that mouse went back to draw as backup mouse,my brother don't want that mouse too,my gf said,this mouse would give her enemies
Went back to G502 Proteus core and that mouse is my most favorited mouse,feels awesome and I like shape of that mouse
On desktop I've set 5600DPI and for some games I'm using just 1200-2800DPI
Hope this helps
Question, are there any recommendations/points as to what polling rate should be used or does it matter much?
Using highest possible (1000 Hz) atm.
Unless a mouse has specific problems on it, a 1000 yep.
Good site to test your mouse, mouse pad and reflexes
It may be worth to include into OP links to a software/sites related to mouse test, estimation.
I think after 2+ year having my G502 proteus core and suffering the mouse shooting off in diffrent direction when just moving camera's in-game I finally fixed? possible windows built in mouse acceleration/Enhanced pointer precision was cause?
Logitech is send me new G502 proteus spectrum free seeing original is under warrenty still.
Only bad thing now is mouse default speed is tad to fast now, I might have to reduce DPI for the mouse if cant get use to it.
G502 is still great mouse
Middle mouse button on my naga 2012 just completely died, i could hit it with a sledgehammer and it won't work 90% of the time :wanker:
Out for a better numpad mouse now, from some quick looks it seems that the Scimitar Pro has a decent sensor and buttons, anyone with any experience using that mouse here? Impressions? (anything will be an improvement over the naga, but still..)
Shouldve started a new thread if i wanted anyone to notice.. probably, welp, I took the plunge, getting delivered tomorrow. Cant wait to play with my 16000 dpi mouse (and use it at 1600dpi)
Delivery took a few days longer than expected but it's here now.
Positive first impression after ~30 mins shooting stuff in the face in Warframe.
So far so good, and i now have a middle mouse click again, it was driving me insane for almost a full week without one. Browsing nightmare!
+few more pics
Anyone have any experience with a Rival 300?
Could get one for just 30 € and take the Rival 100 I have now to work (the macro functions are extremely useful for modeling/design, not to mention it's miles better in desktop use than the generic mice we have).
The Rival 300 has the Pixart PMW3310 sensor which should be good? Also it allows finer CPI adjustment than Rival 100 which has a nasty gap between 500 and 1000 CPI.
500 being way too sluggish and 1000 a bit too quick for my liking. Around 800 could be optimal.
So I finally gave up on the razer abyss after using all of them since the very first one up to the v2 I still love the shape of them but after having the scroll wheel on my v2 yet again start inputting scrolls on its own accord even after replacing it I decided to give the asus rog impact ago.
It's got pretty much same specs and a shape that is quite similar ( raised at the front is a must) build quality is already better but that's no surprise. Not sure if this will be the mouse i'll settle with but for now its ok.
I finally ditched my Sidewinder X8 after years of use the sensor started acting a bit flaky and I figured it was high time for an upgrade, I've always had issues with wired Mice so I went the wireless route again, I have this weird thing with every wired mouse I've ever owned the cable eventually just wears out, dunno why it happens but yeah I seem to do better with a wireless setup and this time I decided to splurge a bit and get something decent so I went with the Logitech G903 and have to say this thing is crazy responsive, still getting used to the hair trigger response on the buttons and the latency is amazing, honestly feels like I'm using a wired mouse,
I'll probably pick up the powerplay charging mat in a few weeks, currently using the Razer firefly but I can forgo the RGB lighting for a perpetually charged mouse,
only issue is the price really £90 for a mouse is a bit steep and that was the cheapest I could find but I figure I'll be using it for years to come so I can just about justify it.
Just an update, I ended up getting the Logitech Powerplay charging mouse pad and it still charges the mouse even when it's placed underneath the Razer Firefly,, so now I have a Logitech G903 that never loses charge and I still get all the RGB led bling from the Razer Firefly, Chuffed
Just to mention it, this thread might deserve a pin. I searched for it recently and couldn't get it anymore through the forum search. Watching it now.
This thread is pinned
First thread on the list @ hardware forum.
I am sorry... it's true... completely missed that, just was blind enough to believe in forum search first and foremost
Can anyone recomend a good wireless mouse that is rechargable through usb? Under 100 Eur.
Logitech wireless > the rest.
But they're not cheap :x
