Need new mouse - suggestions wanted

Postby KnightRid » Mon Nov 20, 2017 4:48 am

Ok, so my Devastator mouse wheel started squeaking again - viewtopic.php?f=12&t=46236&p=225480 - and I am not going to bother with an RMA. I am looking for thoughts on a good mouse that is not $20,000 lol I do not do a lot of gaming on the computer any more (ps4/ps3 for that) and just want something that will work smoothly and comfortably.

Thinking around $30-$50. Any ideas? I might buy the keyboard to match also but just depends on the price.

This is my daily driver. MK520 combo

I have pretty big hands and yes my hand does cover the mouse but it's comfortable for me!
My only complaint would be the mouse is a little on the light side.
I've had 4 or 5 different combo's over the years and this is my favorite!
3 computers in the house and 2 have this setup!

Cheap too! I hate the separate 2.4ghz fob though. I lose the internet if we run our microwave (yea, buy a new one it was I say too but the wife says "there is nothing wrong with it")

Might give it a shot....have to think about that 2.4ghz fob a bit though.....

Thanx! Any others with personal experience with a certain brand/model? I know I used to love my microsoft bluetooth keyboard and mouse but they all died :axe:

I'm not sure I get the issue with the Nano USB dongle(fob)?
I get that it uses up a USB port and that it is Wireless and some people dont care for any wireless lag(at all!)
But if you're not gaming its really pretty responsive!
Another tidbit of info, I have 2 systems in the same area(less than 6' apart) and I have 0 issues with interference!

Just my $.02 :)

I have a Panasonic Inverter microwave and it interferes with 2.4ghz signals, that is the problem. It cuts off my wireless interent if I use it and everything. Tried different channels on the router and nothing fixes it.

So I don't have a problem with the fob or the wireless, just the signal interference I get from my microwave would make it unusable if we are nuking anything :)

The best gaming mouse I've ever used and great for everything else! Get it and you will not be disappointed. I did extensive research before getting it and did compare it to many other good ones.

I was actually looking at the g402 and g502 on best buy cause they were on sale for $20 and $30 respectively but now they are out of stock cause I waited.

Might snag that one and be done with it.

My favorite game mouse was Cougar 200M, I won it at the student championship in the League of Legends when I lived in Ukraine. It has truly served me for 3 years. Then I could not find a suitable mouse for a long time, expensive ones, like Razer, were very uncomfortable in my hand. In fact, I still have not found anything like the one that I had. While I use uncomfortable Razer.

Thanks for the link. When buying from Amazon if the product comes not working/damaged, will I receive my money back? Never used online markets before.

In the USA, you can, not sure about the rest of the world. This looks to be sold direct by Cougar and fulfilled by Amazon. Over to the right it says OTHER SELLERS and the first one is for a direct Amazon sale. Couple bucks more but if you would feel safer getting it directly from Amazon.....

cougargaming.com does not even list the 300M any more.

Great thanks to you, I checked mostly stores in Ukraine and several abroad and there were nothing. Have already made the order, hope everything would be fine with it.

I prefer the Logitech brand. They also have affordable mice.
