    Default Choosing a good wired gaming mouse

    There is some time now that i had in mind of buying a good wired gaming mouse but my Logitech MX Revolution is giving up on me so i need to get a mouse asap.At some point i will take the MX Performance (i also have a laptop so i need 2 mouses after all) but at this point i want a wired gaming mouse and the one i have in mind is the Roccat Kone.Anyone knows this mouse and how it performs?Or do you suggest anything else?The other mouse i saw is the Steelseries WOW MMO mouse (i dont play wow i just like the mouse).I have quite big hands so it must not be small.If you have any info of the Roccat Kone or you can suggest something else i will be thankfull.

    I personally couldn't live without my Logitech G9. It comes with weights so you can tailor it your comfort, and also has two different grips. Every button is customizable, and the wire is sleeved as well. It is honestly the best mouse I've ever owned.

    Logitech G9x is the best I've ever used in a wired. Great feel, easy to customize, accurate.

    I'm actually planning to buy a new mouse, not necessarily for gaming. I've been looking over lots of different models for months now trying to find the right one. I wanted one with a good contour and a good size because I have fairly big hands. A notebook mouse would give me hand cramps.

    The thing that sucks about buying them online is that you can't "try them on" them to see if they fit. I actually am going to try this one out...

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826146009

    I haven't got it yet, but I will real soon before they are out of stock. It seems pretty favorable among people who have got this on Newegg. If you feel you want to save money and go for something different, go for it and give it a shot.

    It's not as big as some, but I don't find it "too small"... just has a great feel to it.

    Mionix Naos 5000. You may find it a bit slender through the middle for bear paws though. But hands down (no pun intended), most comfortable mouse I've ever tested or used personally.

    REVEW:

    If you want a mouse specifically for bear paws, try the Silverstone Raven (not the case, the mouse). It's huge, the contours on it are suited for big hands. My wife has small, slender hands, and she could barely hit the buttons.

    Ok i just returned from the store i tried the G9X and was a bit small for my hand.I also tried the Razer mice and i only liked the Naga but there was a lot of buttons on the thumb so i skipped it.The G500 was not available nor the Razer Mamba.I liked the Steelseries wow mmo and the Roccat Kone but then i saw the Logitech MX Performance (which i was intend to buy it after all despite the wired one) and i took it.Perhaps the best mouse out there and you can also charge it via usb while playing.Next week i will go get a wired one also and i think i get the Roccat Kone was great on my hand and i like the look also.Here some pictures from the MX Performance.

    Wow premium and expansive mouse you bought yourself.
    but i'm not too sure about the wireless gaming performance of this mouse though

    Well thats why i am also going to get myself a descent wired mouse next week.To be honest i always had wireless mice so i dont know if the wired are better for games all i know is that MX Revolution was the best i had used and the MX Performance is even better just playing Metro 2033 and its great.The guys on the store told me thats it performs also better than every other wired in games and the only other that compete it is the Razer Mamba which is wired/wireless.Still i am going to get a wired propably Roccat Kone and compare in games.
