I’ve been using a Razer Deathadder Chroma for the past couple of years, but ran into an issue where the glue that holds the rubber piece on the thumb rest was getting hot or something and oozing out around the piece, along with the piece moving.
So I’m curious what mice people are using or recommend these days. To tide me over for the time being I picked up a corsair M65 Pro FPS mouse. It has the ability to adjust dpi on the fly with some buttons right below the mouse wheel, and has a sniper button on the thumb rest side that you can hold to drop dpi down really low for precision while it is pressed. It also has a weight system, so you can adjust the weight of the mouse. I’ll give it some time to see if I’ll just keep using this, but wonder what other people are using these days.
I just switched mice my own self. Got a Razer Basilisk. It’s super comfy and it has a sniper clutch, they call it, that lowers the input when you’re using a sniper rifle, and I use it ALL THE TIME now. It’s a fantastic mouse.
I’m also down on Razer. I had a bad experience with one of their mice. Double clicks happening when I single clicked. Downloaded new firmware for the mouse (really) which solved it for a while, only to have it resurface some time later. I think I used it for a total of 1.5 years, which makes it by far my shortest lived mouse.
I have had Razer products across the entire spectrum and never had a problem like that.
This, on the other hand, I’ve had with multiple mice from manufacturers including Razer and Logitech. With Razer it seemed like the mouse was wearing out physically, with Logitech their software reportedly is causing the issue on Windows 10 and hasn’t been fixed.
I’m back to a Deathadder at the moment and liking it. It’s also what PC Gamer recommends, I believe.
It can also be a microswitch issue, which is what’s happened to the last… er… actually every mouse I’ve ever owned (microswitch issue, either not registering clicks, or double clicking instead of a single). You can replace the microswitch, I did it once years ago but these days it’s too much hassle. That’s why I’m going cheap.
I’ve been using a Logitech G900 for about a year with no problems. Once you go wireless, it’s hard to go back. I have to plug it in once or twice a week to recharge though, so the wireless charging feature of the G903 would be handy.
