Then I use one of those for a while, go back to the Model M, and remember how stiff it really is.

 

Then again, I have a habit of striking keyboard keys pretty hard with my fingers no matter what I'm using. It's just the way I type.

 

While I still wouldn't want 'em on my primary keyboard...it might be considered for a gaming mini-keyboard sort of device, like the various Belkin/Razer N52s, the Logitech G13, the Razer Orbweaver, etc. I've actually seen pics of N52s modded with MX Reds on Geekhack before. (But then such a device would have to fight for desk space, which is at a premium when it's dominated by a full-size keyboard, a decently-sized mousepad, and a CH Products Fighterstick and Pro Throttle already. I'd even throw the 3Dconnexion SpacePilot on top of that list if I actually used it regularly.)

I use a Ideazon Fang gaming keypad. This is out of production since Steelseries took over Ideazon years ago.

Ideazon FANG Gamepad

 

There is a complete Steelseries keyboard from the Ideazon heritage that still incorporates the lovely WSAD keys like the FANG has, but it is huge:

I actually have a backup unit bought used from Ebay. This combined with my 3 units of Logitech G9x will keep me warm for the next 10 years of FPS! Btw the G9x is perfect for mouse pad less gaming if you want. And if you do not like more buttons, just do not use them.

Its not that I won't use the buttons (which I won't), its that they get in the way. They mess up your grip. You constantly feel them and you have to press them because of that messing up the game.

Can you show us on the doll where the (computer) mouse touched you? Nothing you've said regarding mice happens to anyone else lol. 

post #14569 of 37455

Really? You don't spam all the buttons all the time? YOU MUST PRESS ALL THE BUTTONS!

Extra buttons would really mess me up XD

Ever played PlanetSide 2, which has incidentally been announced for the PS4?

 

That game is ridiculously CPU-bottlenecked more than anything, if the in-game FPS counter is any indication. Even people with the latest CPUs, overclocked quite a bit, are having performance issues if the forums are any indication.

I certainly don't want a mouse with less buttons than my Logitech G500 (and even that's not enough a lot of the time), but I have shied away from those "numpad on side" mice like the Razer Naga for precisely that reason. Having a bunch of buttons is one thing, but they also need to be laid out sensibly to allow a good grip without accidental presses.

 

I'd put the Cyborg M.M.O. 7 to the test, but I am not paying $100+ for a computer mouse. Not when my two G500s only cost me $35-42 each. (And while I'm not usually one to comment on aesthetics, those Cyborg mice are just...hideous. At least they feel nice to hold.)

How about this one?
 

How do you tell if a mouse works well with the hand? All of these strangely shaped mice make me think they won't work as well with holding it.

 

Edit: How do the buttons on the side even work? Do you assign them in game or are they premapped?

Is your hand large and do you rest your palm on the mouse? If so, buy these: http://www.amazon.com/Razer-Deathadder-Precision-Infrared-Gaming/dp/B004MR3QY4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1371757892&sr=8-3&keywords=Death+Adder+3500

 

You will not regret it. You tell by testing it out. Basically you should try and find reviews for the type of style with which you grip the mouse. 

post #14573 of 37455

Yes, that is the way I hold the mouse. The back half of my palm rests on the mouse. But... That's really expensive o.o
 

Edit: My friend always recommended Razer to me, but I never bought anything from them! I'll have to think about money for a while.

 

Edit2: Wait, they make a left handed edition?! Oh, but I switched over to right handed a long time ago..

If you want a large mouse for palm gripping, Newegg has the Mionix Naos 3200 on sale for $30 still. It comes with a free basic mouse pad.

I don't have a camera, but I hold my mouse like this:

 

I don't believe I have big hands, though, if that's what you want to know.

MLE, consider your thread... jacked!!! Mwahahaha... (ok, just kidding)

post #14578 of 37455

When we are at mice -

Logitech G400 (my cheap little baby)and

Razer Deathadder (were a little bit to are the best one for FPS (optical > laser)

Overclock.net and esreality.com have both huge threads about that

post #14579 of 37455

Alright, now I'm starting to get concerned about the HE-400. I'm someone who likes a pretty flat can that sits somewhere on the bright side. I'm hoping the bass on these things is more extended than emphasized.

post #14580 of 37455

It's definitely more extended than emphasized.  It's just that it's an overly warm headphone.  The upper midrange is recessed to the point of harmonics and 'in-your-face' energy of songs can become subdued, so it's really laid-back sounding.  A lot of people like it of that, some don't like it because they want a more in-your-face headphone.

 

It's a deliberately colored headphone, if you wanted more neutral you should have gotten HE-500, which is still warm too.
