My System Specs

Default Which mice to get?

My beloved G5 just byte the dust, so now I need a new mice. I would love to keep the cost reasonable. I was already looking at the RAT3 and the Coolermaster Storm Sentinel Zero-G but I can;t decide which to get. I would like you guys to tell me your choice ( under 70 if possible ) and tell me why! so I can look at many different model and finally get a new one!

The G500 can be PMed at NCIX for $50 and it's often on sale for $40-$50.

If you want something cheaper, the CM Spawn is a VERY nice mouse for ~$30. Unless you have to palm grip and you have giant hands.

I have to say that the issues I had with the original Sentinel , lift off, sensor settings never sticking, were fixed with the Zero-G.
It is a damn comfy mouse (for me anyways everybody is different) large and palm on. Only thing I wish is that it had a pinky rest.

I read somewhere that the zero-G can't scroll horizontally, is that true?

Scrolls fine either way, vertically or horizontally.

G700 fan here. Took a lot of getting used to but I love it now. Having the corded and wireless option is nice. The only downside is the battery life (if you primarily use it wireless). Having an extra set of rechargeables ready is necessary.
