Post by Tina » Thu Apr 14, 2011 10:49 am

I've been thinking for a while on what mouse upgrade to get-but still havent come to any conclutions on what to get

this is my current mouse http://www.amazon.co.uk/RAZER-DIAMONDBA ... 26&sr=8-16 it's served me well, but i want to upgrade it

preferebly i would like to get one with more buttons for mmo as i run out of keys on my gaming keyboard

p/s the mouse has to have shiny lights :P

any ideas welcome :)

The Diamondback was my favourite mouse until it failed in a very simple way (the middle wheel axle broke) and Razer was uncooperative in helping me source a tiny replacement that would have not only saved money but kept the mouse out of a landfill.. I ended up switching to Steelseries XAI Laser Mouse on top of the SS laser mat -- it doesn't have the neat shiny lights or a pulsing glow, it's got just 7 'standard' buttons, on-board memory to store profiles, sensitivity adjustment.. Bottom-line: it performs just as well as the Diamondback and it feels good -- doesn't sound like what you're looking for as it's what I would consider an FPS-warriors-mouse and it's dull to look at but I'm very happy with how it helps me headshot (or fail @ TF2, lol)

I agree with you there, the dimondback is the best one i've had and if it wasnt for the fact that i need more buttons then I would not change it

Have you got a link to the mouse you have? having lights is nice, but if that mouse is decent i may take a look.

I've playing alot of rpgs atm and need the extra buttons for that.
