    I'm looking for a new mouse and I really dont want anything from the "regular" mouse guys. Not that their mice are "regular" but they are definitely the standard and I'd like to try something new. (I'm referring to Logitech, Razer and Steelseries... )

    What I found and am trying to procure is the Rapoo v3 mouse. I know the brand name is funny but their products look pretty damn slick. They make several versions of what appears to be pretty much the same gaming mouse with a few tweaks and features. Their V8 versions is a 2.4Ghz mouse and it's basically the nicest mouse I've ever seen but it's wireless and that scares me since it doesnt have a plug a charge cable like the Razer Mambe or MS Sidewinder x8. Luckily my company has a division in China and I should be able to source this out through one of our contacts. :rockout:

    Anyway the V3 is very similar to the V8 but it's wired (WIN).. so here it is. Anyone here ever seen anything like this mouse? or Nicer.. that not from a well known brand?

    And here is the V8.. F*** it's nice.

    Just thought I'd share.

    NCIX.com can get the V8 and the V2 versions but they dont have the V3 listed. IMO the V2 is just nowhere near as nice as the V3 and doesnt have the side click on the wheel. . If I get it I'll let you know what the MSRP was.

    If that's the type of grip you like, I'd look into the Gigabyte M8000 I've been using it for quite a while and it's pretty nice. Either way, I can't find any reviews for the Rapoo mice. May not be the greatest sign. Remember function before form.

    No review in English but the V3 appears to be very new. On a Chinese site (similar to newegg i believe) the rating were very high.. Close to 5 stars from what I could tell was quite a few user ratings.

    @ warup89 - that mouse is sort of cool.. Kinda trying to hard to be different.. and my wife has to use this PS as well. She wouldnt touch that shit. lol

    @ Kenshai I'll check it out. thx

    because the mouse have several "split" points the mouse "breaks" and you can make it the size that fits you most, it kind of next gen ergonomics jajajajaj nice mouse in my opinion

    that cyborg R.A.T. looks fairly amazing. I might just pick it up at $130. To tell you the truth, as much as I use a mouse in my life, I would spend up to $500 for a perfect mouse (perfect, mind you).

    It's just for the DPI (5000), comfort, and all the extra buttons. Some mice do make a massive difference in certain games. For example my MS sidewinder x5 had horrible tracking in BF2142 while my Creative 1010 helps me score 5:1 k/d in every conquest match I play. Might just be all mental though... but having a mouse that glides smoother definitely helps.

    I'm trying to get a pair right now. If you know someone that speaks chinese there are sites that will ship world wide. Price for the V3 looks to be around $33-$39 CAD. Not bad at all for the specs. 5000dpi, removable weights, sh1tload of buttons.

    $500 :eek: lol thats crazy but I guess if you could have a carbon and titanum mouse molded to your perfect hand size, wrist angle, and finger length it would almost cost that much.

    I use a logitech trackman wheel ( got it for free) and on Average my aim is the same if not better then other people I play online FPS with, certain a few of them a using gaming mice aswell.

    I tend to find if your mouse is not shite, and comfortable in your hand you just get used to it, becomes an extension of the arm ha ah

    I just think spending more then £15 on a mouse without death lasers seems a bit excessive, just practice more with a cheap mouse, then you can spend money on more games or food etc.

    Maybe a nice hat.

    Open statement aimed at noone!

    I do see your point... It's the same one my wife made lol.

    I agree that a mouse doesnt make you better but if you already are good then having more well placed buttons doesnt hurt. Basic mice always have fewer buttons and lack on the fly dpi adjustments. I always adjust dpi when flying in BF2142 or driving a tank and now I cant live without that option.

    I just change the sensitivity in game XD

    More buttons could be handy I suppose, but then again I've one hand on the keyboard which has a shit ton of buttons to use XD

    Tell you what though, I wouldn't go back to a traditional mouse ever, they're actually game crippling.

    The higher the DPI, the greater the accuracy. It stands to reason that in applications/games that require precision, you'd need a mouse that is capable of giving that precision.
    Typically, a cheap mouse cannot give you this ;)

    I received the Rapoo V3 this morning.. couriered from Shanghai on Thursday to my desk on Monday morning.. That's faster than anything I've received from the US.

    The mouse is amazing. It's made with the same Teflon feet as Razer mice and glides like butter. Build quality it surprisingly solid and I couldn't be happier. Also has interchangeable weights in the mouse. For what should cost me approximately $40 CAD I couldn't be happier.

    The rat mouse is using the same sensor (philips twin eye, search it in google to see how much of a piece of crap it is) as the razer imperator/laches/mamba so you'll get the pick up down right issue seen in my thread. :wtf:
