    I've just bought an Razer Imperator 2012 edition, its... epic.

    I'm a logitech man myself. I'd suggest a G500 http://www.logitech.com/mice-pointers/mice/devices/5750
    I used to use a G7 (the old wireless one) but after 6 years, the rechargable batteries are running out of juice so I decided to get a wired one. In terms of longevity, the actual mouse still works perfectly after 6 years of moderate-heavy use.
    In terms of size, if you have smaller hands like I do then it is a great fit.
    You can alter the weight if that's your sort of thing (I personally don't find much difference, as even a heavier mouse isn't really THAT heavy) and it has the 3 sensitivty levels switch on it for more general gaming outside of d3.
    it could use a few more buttons for d3 specificity, but that's not a big deal since you have a keyboard haha.

    highly recommended.

    Razer Deathadder, 5 buttons should be enough for Diablo III and infraredtech is still a bit better than laser. Only thing i dislike is the slight unsymmetrical design.

    According to my needs and the feedbacks in this thread, I guess i'm now looking for a rather small/light mouse with a couple extra buttons on the side, and that is not a Razer!

    I think a Xai fits best in that description. Maybe that D3 mouse or Sensei if you want to spend more for no particular reason. Either of them are very light and rather small and have two buttons on each side alongside the normal buttons.

    Razer is notorious for making overpriced things that break down within the first year of using them (I'm talking out of experience). The Deathadder is probably the only good thing they've ever made.


    I just said I've used 3 mice over 12 years of heavy gaming. I wouldn't say they're notorious for any such allegations other than supporting the gaming community with top notch mice.

    Ive used Diamondback, Deathadder and Imperator. Happy with all purchases.


    You need to read around the net then - Google searches show up the fact that there are lots of people with problems.

    Best bet is to go to Amazon US or UK and read the customer reviews. You can quickly see what problems people are having. Once a mouse has been around for a while you can get some idea if it will wear out quickly or not.

    I didn't see where the Cherry Reds vs Blacks were discussed but it you want a little stiffer press and want to pay less the Steelseries 6Gv2 is really nice. Far less flashy but the lettering can wear of easily, I have my lettered keys replaced with blank ones anyway.

    Haven't experienced that problem yet and I use it a lot.

    It's really just QWER and mostly the Q which I think might be due to many Skarner matches in LoL.

    One nice thing about Cherry switches is that caps are easy to get! http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products/keycap-sets.html

    I've played with a bunch of keyboard and can tell you Cherry MX RED's are best for gaming they actuate quicker than blues and are silent. Blues are the next best cause they actuate the third quickest but they made shit tons of noise, I don't mind but some people do. If you want a Mechanical board get a Blackwidow ultimate, if you're not a fan of clicky noises get the ninja edition. Browns are the second quickest and make a little noise not as much as blues and blacks are no noise but are harder to actuate making them less desirable for gamers who need to be able to press a key with minimal force in quick succesion. I'd reccomend the Steelseries 7g or the Blackwidows Not sure about the G19 it's not mechanical but I liek the G15 that my friend has so I can reccomend that and since the G19 is the better version I guess that's an option too.

    Mice are a different ballpark. Razer is good Logi is good steelseries is good. The only difference between any of them is styles of play and weight and looks. They're all the same damn thing. most have 5.6k DPI+ for super fast mousing although it'll take a while to get used to. If you liek claw style where the palm rests on the mouse and only the fingerstips rest on the mouse, an ambidextrous mouse like the Razer Lachesis is good. If you like Palm grip which is where everything rests on the mouse then naga's mambas' imerators, G9x's are all good choices. If you're a fingertip player than a mouse like the lachesis is good, the Xai, the naga ultimate with the slim grip is good too. The mouse is much more personal preference

    Hmmm really when chosing switches its more a matter of personal preference imo. Its a lot better to try them before jumping to a conclusion, I feel there is a world of differences between black and blue for example while really I have seen everyone and their dog having a preference for either.
    I might agree though about red, but I can't stand blues :X

    Also I dont understand why you say Red are best and then recommend the 7G which is black and the Blackwidow which is blue ? (unless there are other versions that I dont know about).

    There aren't many Red keyboards, I only know of 2, the Corsair K60 and the rosewill one. I'd reccomend either but have never experienced either as such I didn't put them in my reccomendations. Others say they're great but no personal experience with either.

    What mouse you use is pretty much dictated by the size and shape of your hand. Find something thats comfortable for your hand.
    After my old logitech mx510 which lasted for ages, I ended up with Roccat Kone. Customizable weight, change dps with buttons next to the scrollwheel on the fly, 2 thumb buttons. Its also 5 lights inside it, which you can choose the colors off individually. (can even make them flash if you are really into cheesy stuff)
    You can also store 5 (?) preset settings, and they are stored in the mouse, so if you move it to a new computer, you still got your settings.

    Gets the "Angry cat seal of approval" from me
    I can see what you see not. Vision milky, then eyes rot.
    When you turn, they will be gone. Whispering their hidden song.

    Then you see what cannot be. Shadows move where light should be.

    If you want small and light, theres a shiton of bad recommendation here. I would highly suggest the Logitech G300 (plenty of buttons, light and small and very affordable) or the G400 which is a bit bigger
  • #60
    This is what I have been using since, they first came out. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826105122 I buy as many as I can, when I need a new one. (They don't make them anymore) I really like the side buttons because of their size and location, you can hit them with the inside of your fingers and not just with the tips of them. I also hold my mouse at about a 35 degrees from the straight on.

    A lot of these mice have a lot of buttons that are on the far side of the mouseand they are small and under your hand/fingers some, I don't see how they would be useful at all.


    FYI, Anyone know if the Logitech Gaming Mouse G500 or/and Logitech Gaming Mouse G300, are about the same size and weight of the Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical 1.1A, that I use?

    Any mouse with a 3rd button. Without binding a 3rd key to walk, its a lot harder to do what you plan.
