I was looking at maybe buying a mouse from Razer.

and i was hoping if someone on GtG had any experiences with them.

I read the comments on the main site.. but they all see one sided.

here is the mouse i'm planning to purchase:

:)

I use the Lachesis, the Lycosa, and the eXactMat. I love each one. :) The best thing about the Lachesis is the ability to change DPI with the click of a button in mid-game. You can't do that with the Diamondback (and you can only get 1800DPI... compared to 4000DPI for the Lachesis).

The higher the DPI setting, the faster the mouse will move across the screen and the more it "reacts" to your slightest movements. With my large 1920x1080 resolution, the high DPI is a huge plus for me. With a smaller resolution, you won't need to move the mouse as quickly (due to less screen space) and therefore the higher DPI will be less of a selling point.

i might look into the Lachesis, but its so expensive XD

I actually have a 40" 1080p LCD TV. :)

Anyways, it depends what resolution you use on your 22". Even at 1680x1050, I'd still think 2000-3000 DPI would be nice to have.

As for the expense, the Lachesis is on sale for $65 at Best Buy. See the Weekly Ad

I'm trying to pick between the G5 and the Lachesis.

because I won't be able to buy it this week. (going on a cruise over spring break)

and the G5 seems cheaper. help?

i know th G5 has 2000dpi and Lachesis has 4000dpi.

Just wondering if i really "need" 4000dpi

I play Cod4, UT3, etc.

Could you not order it online? :) For $40 (if you use your giftcard), the Lachesis seems like a no-brainer even if you don't need the extra DPI since it also has plenty of other nice features (see Razer site for those).

And again, what DPI you need mainly depends on what resolution you play at. The higher the resolution, the more high DPIs are useful.

oh wow...

the Lachesis is amazing. I'm not just going with the flow here. It has really improved my Aim in Cod4. (i still suck >.<)

I saw the Tarantula at Bestbuy today for $50 :) i was gonna buy it. But i ran out of cash. (again)
