Windows 7: Best palm grip budget-gaming mouse

Best palm grip budget-gaming mouse

I recently got a Roccat Lua, which I find uncomfortable as I use palm grip while working/gaming for long hours and I have moderately large hands; I'm worried about some kind of injury. Which of these following budget 'mice' do you think will suit me and is reasonably good hardware?

Info:I found my (now deceased) Razer Abyssus quite comfortable for 3 years....

1) Logitech G100 [priority] (Logitech G 100 Gaming Mouse - Logitech: Flipkart.com)

2)Logitech G400

3)E-Blue Cobra (http://www.tradus.com/e-blue-cobra-5...U0000004538558)



Can't spend more than 1500 INR , give or take a couple of hundred Rupees...as I have to soon upgrade my gfx too.

This will be like the Egg and Chicken question... multiple answers and perhaps none will help you.

I had a Logitech G7 wireless I loved but had to let go because, being wireless would have some sort of hiccup while in heavy battles, ie: reaction times would suffer and it was enough to be killed instead of continuing forward.

Now I have a Logitech G9, awesome mouse because of the multiple options it gives you for general use and gaming but, in 3 or more years I have never gotten comfortable with it... hard to explain.

I am in the same boat you are, looking for a mouse but I can't seem to be able to spend money on another one because budget is tight, this one works fine and what if this other one is similar or even worse... such is life in the tropics

True,, very true. That is the gist of my problem, if I go spend another load of money (which I can ill afford) on g400 or g100 and find it has the same grip problem; then what ?

PS. Saying that Lua is a very attractive and speedy mouse as gaming mice go...majority of the reviewers/users think too that it is small for even medium sized hands. Is the G100 okay in that regard,as it fits the budget just fine. Or else, failing that, are the other two I've named? g400 costs the most.

Okay guys, as it seems to be a chicken and egg question as previously pointed out here, is the g100 mouse is comfortable with palm grip for big hands or I have to try g400. I understand both are good gaming gears, any opinion would help. Thanks in advance.

Going by LOOK only as I have no way to feel both those devices, I have to say they look extremely small for a Medium Hand, let alone a Big Hand, then again... looks could be deceiving. Great help huh

Found this Review, it seems like the G9X or the Corsair are the way to go

Also found this youtube video, did not see it at all but it may help you?

Logitech G400 get that use it myself best mouse i've ever owned. Totally worth it and has software to change dpi and polling rates in the software provided by logitech and gets software updates. Totally worth the money. I recommend it. Also really responsive and has these little buttons on the side to change pages back or forward when browsing which i feel i can't live without anymore and you can bind them to commands in games also which I use like in TF2 for when i play spy to be able to cloak a bit quicker and be able to change from enemy or friendly disguises which really helps me out or like in max payne 3 which i bind to be able to activate bullet time and have max take pills to refill health quicker and I find it more convenient.

@M1GU31...
I was just a bit late seeing you reply...now I'm a little bit crestfallen for that. See, I've got this very good discount in a local pc store for Razer Deathadder Black Ed. the price came down to almost as same as G400, and he convinced me that g400 has an issue with its sensor after 4/5 months use...and I bought the DA Suffice it to say it is a humongous mouse (it even dwarves my moderately big hands) especially on my CM Storm Speed RX [Small] pad; it's so big & heavy my hands are actually trembling to cope! I don't know how long it will take to adjust, if at all , as the horse has already bolted the stable!!

Any opinions guys on the suggested polling rate(500 default & DPI 1800) and work room temp. as the weather is currently very hot & humid. Razer has suggested something about that I couldn't rightly understand.....whew, that is a long post

If you want a big mouse then the Logitech G500 is pretty big. I had one but sold it because of the hight, It made my wrist hurt but i only have small hands. Amazon.com: Logitech G500 Programmable Gaming Mouse: Electronics
