What mouse do I get

I'm going to get a new mouse but I don't know which one. Either the razer ouroborus or the Star Wars the old republic gaming mouse. I do play a bit of mmo but mainly fps which mouse would be better. Or any other mice that would be good for me

Of the two: the Ouruboros. You don't really need the Star Wars Old Republic mouse's side keys when you're playing first-person shooters, and they may get in the way. I also wouldn't rule out Logitech's higher-end mice, in my experience, although I haven't tried the latest generation.

Are there any other mice that would be good

Please don't spend over $100 on a mouse it gets you nothing besides extra buttons. If you play fps games look here: www.esreality.com­/index.php­?a­=post­&id­=2024663

"it gets you nothing besides extra buttons." False. The flagship Razer, the Oroboros has an 8,200 dpi sensor and can be both wireless or wired. It also has superior build quality and plenty of metal and very little plastic. Please consider not speaking in absolutes.

Wireless is a feature that is not for gaming, and dpi gets you nowhere when it comes to precision. As for the materials when was the last time you broke your mouse because it wasn't made out of metal? The buttons give out, the wire gives out, the scroll wheel gets messed up but it never got run over by a car or punted across a room. Plastic saves a lot of weight and many people prefer lighter mice to heavier ones.

With an 8,200 dpi sensor, I use just my fingertips to move my mouse whichever distances I wish and practically floats on my metal mousepad. Do not insist I do not have precision and control because I use only my most sensitive parts of my limb, my finger tips and little else. The Razer mice also come with a decently insulated, cloth braided cord. No tangling, and will not wear out unless your desk happens to be made of sandpaper or something.

Unless you have some sort of gift or like a decade of experience with this sensitivity there is no way to be as precise as someone using a standard 6-12"/360

Looking from the side, my fingertips roll from 7 o'clock to 8 o'clock on my mouse. That is enough for me to take my cursor from the bottom of the screen to the top on a 1080 monitor. Point of all this is, if you want super sensitivity and can train yourself or get used to it, it can help. No sweeping arm movements across massive mouse pads, just little jitters and twitches.

Monkey Suit is right. You are misinformed about this situation 100%. Laser mice are NEVER as precise as an optical mouse. If you buy a Laser Mouse for FPS gaming and you are happy with it good for you. But if you don't own a new mouse yet and you want what is best for accuracy and precision you buy an Optical Mouse. Mionix or a Zowie are great brands.

Just an FYI, a quality mouse pad will serve you well. There is a metal, double sided Insignia (house brand) pad from Best Buy for $25 that is identical to the Razer offering, just a touch smaller. Thing is: there is a Rocketfish (also house brand) pad that is being clearanced out and is EXACTLY the same as the Insignia and is very, very similar to the metal Razer ones. The Rocketfish one is on sale for just $8 and is fantastic. Searched Best Buy dot com for SKU: 2494238.

Mousepads are also completely personal preference and a puretrack talent or qck+ is going to be a lot better than a hard pad for comfort and control while preserving your mouse feet. Hard pads last a lot longer though.

I personally roll with a Logitech G602. After coming from the ambidextrous Razer Lachesis to a nice contour fitted right hand design unless your a lefty I would give the Ouroboros a miss. also the G602 has 6 macro programmable buttons under the thumb handy for killstreaks, grenades, titanfalls ect ect but would also be good for MMO's. the DPS on the fly switches are in a easily accessible position on the pointer finger and the wireless mode switchable performance/battery saving is nice in performance it dosen't seem to have any input lag at all from my experience playing 150 hrs of Titanfall which is a very twitchy game

I just bought the Ouroboros and while the mouse itself is awesome and solidly built the Razer software is crippling. Maybe they will get better with time but its buggy as hell. That being said, when it works its awesome.

I got lots of gaming mouses from anker, most of the mouses are cool with high dpi and cool outlook.
