New Hardware

My laser G7 mouse konked out recently.  Though I love how it handles it’s power, with swappable rechargable battery packs that can be swapped mid-boss without too much downtime, as they age (about 2 years on average) I’ve found they got flakey.  They’d stop working for a few seconds at a time, which just drove me crazy.

So I decided to switch to a wired mouse.  BUT I wanted to put my hands on them before I bought one.  I called Staples, Gamestop and Best Buy and only Best Buy had a good selection.

My finalists:

Sadly the G9x, my front runner was out of stock, and I won’t spend $100 on on a mouse without touching it first.  The G5 was fine but didn’t really jump out at me.  The WoW mouse just felt like I wouldn’t be able to hit all the extra buttons I was paying for.

In the end I settled on the Death Adder as it fit my hand well and had an extra thumb button that I’m putting to good use.  I’ll post my button setup later.
