    Mouse advice g500 or roccar kone+

    Which one would be the better choice? im pretty stuck on them, want a decent gaming mouse that is responsive, decent tracking and ease of use, looks are not a problem.

    But im stuck! i cannot decide which one would be better? i currently use a g5 which has served me well but now is pretty much on its last legs....no good to me anymore and response time is showing its age! so thoughts?

    I have a Kone+ and love it. However, I might have to return it as it is sometimes not picking up clicks or wheel scrolls so I think there might be a problem with it hardware wise. Will get another though as I think it is a great mouse; one of the very few which is large enough to stop the edge of my hand touching the mat and causing drag.

    I had/have the G500 and it was/is superb. However after not very long usage, IMO, the cable broke or developed a loose connection. I know Logitech's support is supposed to be good so i could get it replaced but up until it broke it was as i say, superb, and i would recommend it.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Re: Mouse advice g500 or roccar kone+

    I've got the original Roccat Kone, lovely mouse, still working fine after a year.

    - Really nice matt feel.
    - Customizable lights.
    - Really responsive.
    - Feels very comfortable due to its shape.

    IMO the Kone+ is just the Kone with a few hardware alterations, the buttons are supposed to be more robust and the Roccat logo looks quite nice across the front of the mouse.

    Re: Mouse advice g500 or roccar kone+

    Wouldn't know anything about Roccat so won't advise against it, but i've had g500 for over 5 months now, not a single problem. Also if you like your mouse a bit heavy, weights make it ideal. Scarcraft2, day of defeat, tanks, games that require aim or a very responsive mouse - all good this end
