Does your spelling have anything to do with your IQ? I hope not. :shadedshu
Nope, spelling has very little to do with IQ, and if you cant work out that some mouse pads would affect the way you hold your mouse then what dose that say about your IQ?
FORUM FIIIIIGHT



back to topic: I dont see how holding you mouse like the claw grip is comfortable I have average to large hands and I have the razer lachesis and its still uncomfortable

Well there you have it! I'm assuming that's your sense of humor, and a sense of humor says a lot more about a person's IQ than their spelling.
Or was that supposed to be an insult? Either way, pathetic.

I do not know about the Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse (I use a MS Trackball Optical 1.0 :p ), but I use the MS Sidewinder X6 Keyboard and it is amazing. Switchable Macro keys are AWESOME and the removable keypad is unique, though not very functional, besides to shorten the keyboard for transport to LANs. :)

They always did. I went with the Lycosa though. I feel like I bought the Lycosa and DeathAdder just for the brand name.

Microsoft products have a lot more functions, and are probably more durable in terms of quality.

I've been looking at the latest sidewinder mouse... the wireless one. If my mouse dies I'll consider switching.

I've had the MS Trackball Optical 1.0 for about 5 years, but it is failing. :cry: A used replacement is around $100 :eek: Anyone have one laying around?? :cool:

I've messed around with a track ball and for general use it's a great mouse! The one I used has 3 buttons though :cool: (not mine though).

+1 For the Death Adder!

Now if it had 2-4 more buttons, I would never even look at another mouse again!

I've had mine for a couple of months. What can I say, I love MS peripherals. :D
I picked up the keyboard and think it is absolutely top notch as well. The knobs although fugly serve their purpose well, and the detachable numpad + calc key are a godsend since I am left handed. I fps and play guitar righty, but type on numpad lefty so most keyboards are worthless to me.

I wonder if it is better than the Lycosa in terms of quality.

The DeathAdder suits me perfectly, and my hands aren't exactly small. It also depends on what grip you use, personally I use the claw grip.
Claw Grip???

EDIT: NOTICE THE PICTURE OF DR CLAW..

If you don't know about grips, you're not a gamer. If you're not a gamer, don't buy a gaming mouse!
:roll:


The DA is still one the highest performing mice out there... and the only razer mouse I like. I havent seen any reviews of the sidewinder, it looks like it could be a good mouse.

I've got the G5 for my game machine, I tried several different mice at the store before picking up the G5 due to the larger size compared to the others, using the G5 on my old windows 9x allowed me to use a higher than standard USB polling rate, previously I was stuck at 200, the G5 let me use 400, and tracked loads better than my logitech. Also been using the old logitech optical mouse for "TOO LONG" I like the techy look of the sidewinder, and glad that it isn't wireless.. I'd like to see what the inside/bottom of the button pressing pads look like, the part that actually depresses the micro's, see if I think they will last longer than my now well worn logitech that has been repaired three times to fix the worn out button presser pad.. I think I'll go play with one and see if I can't bring it home.. Thanks for the heads up.

From what I know, the SideWinder is HUGE. Even for a person with large hands it might be a problem. The DA is great because of it's shape and looks, but there are plenty of other mice out there that are better in every other aspect.
