What kind of mouse do you use for gaming?
What kind of mouse are you using for your gaming?

I have always used an Optical mouse, but lately have been using the MX1000 from Logitech. It's an awesome mouse, but doesn't seem that it's built for gaming, I think just because it's cordless. More tests to be had for sure though, as I will likely change my mind.

There are a ton of different mice for gaming, so which do you use? Logitech has a new pure gamers mouse coming out [MX518], which looks hopeful, since you can change your DPI during play.

Just want to know what everyone uses.. so I can have more excuses why I suck so bad at UT and CS: S. :D

I use a wired black and gray logitech mouse with dual optical sensors.

* A 2X optical sensor-up to 800 dpi
* Three customizable buttons and a scroll wheel
* WebWheelâ„¢ software for smarter Internet browsing
* Comfortable in either hand

i have a mx510. The mx518 just has better dpi. I love my mouse.

I use the mx 700 wireless from logitech, though most of the buttons arent compatable with most games. I think im going to try the new one logitech is coming out with soon, the mx530 is it?

This is my Workmouse...

It's an IBM Scrollpoint Pro 800dpi optic mouse.

Expect a review of the MX518 tomorrow or Friday.

Mike, you play CS right? How do you find playing those types of games with a cordles mouse? I found that the control was a little worse, because I have the habit of lifting my mouse, moving it, and it then moving me in game. That doesn't happen with optical.

I use the standard sony vaio mouse with cord... There isnt really a name for it...

Why? Cause it came with the computer and if i keep it clean it works fine for what i use it for...

Muddy 03-20-2005 03:37 PM

i use mx510 maybe once i get more money ill gethte mx518 and see if i can tell a difference. I love this mouse its so comfortable. B4 this mouse ive always had crappy microsoft ball mouses, they were horrible

Rob Williams 03-20-2005 04:07 PM

Oh yeah..

If anyone besides me lives in Canada.. Staples are selling the MX510 for $18.88..

$30 instant rebate and a $10 mail-in.

Good deal for sure.. considering the other day they were $60CAN.

Yea Rob, CS is my life:-) I do find find that a broblem, when it happens, But I changed my mouse sensitivity up so i can turn faster that has helped. But I find the lifting of the mouse problem also effects me on cord mice too, all opticals do that i think, so i cant wait to try this mx518, looks nice :-P

I still use my Razer Boomslang. It's about 4 years old but still awesome.

Rob Williams 03-25-2005 05:45 PM

Ahh.. the boomslang.

I used one when they came out. I remember the ads, I think they were with the game Hitman.

Good times.

Yea, my old roommate and I scored 2 of them at Frag4 in Dallas, waaaay back in 2000. I still have a V5 6000 vid card from the same convention. remember those?
