Gaming Mouse Recommendation

Hi All,

Seeking some recommendations for a gaming mouse. Mostly playing FPS, CSGO/Valorant.

Currently using a Razer deathadder 2013 edition so time to get an upgrade.

I quite like the ergonomics of the deathadder, but wouldn’t mind something lighter & wireless. I play on fairly low sensitivity. 800dpi/0.48 on valorant which is around a 380edpi.

Being a ozbargainer would like to seek first hand opinion on mouses as most reviews trend towards zowie or Logitech G Pro/Superlight.

Am willing to spend for a superlight but only when a deal comes up on ozb, so I think most other options should be less.

Thanks

TLDR: recommend me a gaming mouse
Must have:

  • Wireless
  • Good sensor
  • Good ergonomics for Medium sized hand (right handed)
  • Light

    Budget?

    •  

      I'm happy to pay for a superlight on discount, so $220 max.

    MM731. Hasn't come out yet, but Cooler Master typically have lower pricing for their mice. They're not a big enough brand name like Corsair or Razer to demand super high unreasonable prices, but they're big enough to benefit from economics of scale. Fulfils all of your criteria apart from cost. It might be some time before it is available in Australian retailers and AUD pricing is revealed.

    Pulsar Xlite. Is much more expensive because they're a smaller company and combined with shipping to Australia really bumps up the price. Otherwise fulfills all the criteria you've listed. Worth noting that there is very little flex and is well engineered despite the giant gaping holes on the underside of the mouse.

    At the moment, these 2 are the main superlight ergo mice with top tier sensors under 60 grams.

    One more thing worth mentioning: The MM730/1 use optical switches and encoders, so that's not good for battery life for the wireless versions, since they're essentially small lasers that are always on. The Pulsar Xlite on the other hand, uses conventional mechanical switches.

      Thanks for the reply, looking at the Pulsar Xlite, I can't seem to find this being retailed as yet (even on their own website).

    Check out Zy's website if you haven't already.

    Razer viper ultimate or the G pro wireless would be my vote. Most mice are pretty decent these days, just try to find a shape that suits you.

      Great list will take some time to look through it

    G Pro Wireless is amazing and the best mouse I’ve ever used however mine has started double clicking every now and then and my previous logi G903’s both developed double click. It’s inevitable but the G Pro is so good I’ll just write it off and buy another which hurts but it is what it is.

    •  

      I have read/seen reviews of that issue, apparently it has been fixed in the superlight - which would be what I would get if I take the logitech option.

      As a question, I believe the mouse shape is the same, do you ever have drag on your pinky when using the mouse?

      •  

        Naar not at all but it depends how you hold the mouse I guess. I’m a palm sort of guy and I rest my pinky on the side but above the level of the mousepad.

        Might have to look into the super light for the next one.

        Other reason I keep going back to logi is I have the powerplay which is also awesome

    I have a Glorious Model O wireless and can't fault the thing, very light, good ergo and battery life, excellent BAMF sensor and always getting software/firmware updates. The price is excellent too for what you're getting, PCCG gear sell them for $129.

    I found it a little slippery upon first use but some grip tape in a couple spots sorted it right out.

      Yes that is another I am considering, have you had any issues with squeaky buttons/wheel - going off user reviews on PCCG?

      •  

        I did get a slight squeak in the wheel after a few months use, a little drop of grease on the tip of a small paint brush applied to either side of the wheel sorted it out since. Took about 30sec to do and I didn't have to pull anything apart. The buttons have been fine so far, no issues at all.

      •  

        If you prefer better ergo, the Glorious Model D is great. Loved the mouse since I got it

    •  

      +1 from me, I bounced around a few mice until I settled on this one and it has been flawless for me.

      •  

        Great to hear, have you had any experience with the ceramic feet?

  • +1 vote

    I went from a G502 to a Superlight and will 10000000% recommend the mouse. It is insanely light and I dont think I can ever go back.

    I had 2 Glorious Mice, both with defects, moved onto G Pro, can't complain.

    I would recommend the Razer Viper Ultimate, I got my copy from Microsoft for about $135 from last Black Friday. I love having the charging dock with it as well.
