Love it, and I feel that. I still eye my Intellimouse v3 every once in awhile...Everyone likes new stuff, but I'm still using a million year old wireless Razer mouse. One of the first that weighs about 1600lbs. Love it and until it gets rowdy, I'll keep using it.
I had one of the original Logitech Wingman mice, with the three buttons and no scroll wheel. Sometimes I remember the good old days and look around on eBay for one.Love it, and I feel that. I still eye my Intellimouse v3 every once in awhile...
What? I have a mouse on my second PC with 20k DPI and all I play are old games (quake3, quake2, original serious Sam) and it works finePfft, nah.
Also once mice went crazy-high res they stopped "just working" with a lot of games not from their era. Old mice, on the other hand, work just fine with new shit.
As long as the feet still glide, send it.
Maybe these aren't old enough, who knows.
I have this issue in Linux with all of my razer mice. Probably a razer issue.It's usually in-between games that suck. Try it with Skyrim. Not Skyrim Special Edition, I'm talking regular Skyrim (unless they finally patched it).
There are plenty of games from that era that you have to go into .cfg files for high DPI mice to override MouseSensitivyGame:1000 with MouseSensitivtyGame:0.025.
Definitely, especially the Viper V2. Loved my Diamondbacks, but they were showing their age. If you're interested in trying them, get the Viper 8K first. It can be found for as little as $35-$40 at Best Buy, Amazon, or eBay. The V2 is expensive at $150. I found it on sale at BB for $99 and had $30 in reward certificates to ease the expense. I wouldn't buy any mouse for $150.Worthwhile upgrade for you? Have you noticed a difference in all games, or particular ones?
I guess you missed that the G502 X just came out a few weeks ago.Still using a G502 Proteus, no where near as ancient as some of the mice some of you guys are using... But overall I see no reason to go for the newer models. I don't even use over a 1500 DPI setting (and that's on the highest profile, ranging from 450 to 1500 over the spread of four or five variants)... All this marketing hype for the (25k sensor) is highly irrelevant for me.
So, not sure upgrading to a new one just because it's new is money well spent on my part. When it breaks? Sure thing, back to the G502 again( maybe even the wireless variant).
As well - I picked up the G604 for cheap this week just to try out wireless for gaming. And so far it's nice. But the feel of my G502 just reigns supreme.
I also picked up the X12 for like $12, just because it's cheap AF. Literally doesn't feel worth much more. An ambidextrous mouse is just weird AF to hold.
Overall - I suspect I'll be rotating here and there from the G604 and back the G502 over time. But I don't think I need anything really else.
Yeah I have had the power play mat since it came out a few years ago, it works great. I used it with the G903 before. Never have to worry about charging and no cord dragging around. It also has the a wireless receiver built into it so no worries about interference when it's right next to the mouse.I saw that - are you using the wireless pad to go along with it? USB C charging is a nice touch.
Having the sensor on the pad is something I didn't know and think that pumps up the value quite a bit. I'll look into some deals if they ever come up.Yeah I have had the power play mat since it came out a few years ago, it works great. I used it with the G903 before.

The 903 came with a nice braided cord with specifically shaped plastic to keep it secure to the mouse so it was actually pretty good if you needed to use it wired, the 502 x just has a regular cord even though it is upgraded to USB C instead of micro. It wouldn't be a good corded experience I think it would get loose and eventually slip out with jerky movements. Not a problem with the wireless charging mat and the battery probably lasts weeks even without it so not really an issue though.
