I love my razer naga. I love binding keys to the keypad on the side of the mouse.

Well i like the ergonomics of the deathadder although not as much as the non available laser diamondback. The accuracy is pretty good although not perfect. Probably the new one combining laser and infrared can be more accurate. Shame that no existing mouse is as ergonomic as the good old diamondback :/

I am coming from years of using 3 different versions of Aimon so I am use to the button layout on the mouse.  It hit me today that my trusty G500 only has 3 buttons on the side so I started looking at gaming mice for the first time in years.

What mouse are you XIM veterans using and how do you have it set up for thumb buttons?  Is there one with 4 buttons on the side (but less than 20 like some of the mice I have seen)?  I really only play COD so I will need to reload, couch, jump and switch weapons with the thumb buttons.

g700s or g500s

Today I saw them both for 59.99 at best buy

thanks for the suggestions!  The more I look at various layouts the more I think I like the G600.  There will  be a lot of unused buttons on the side but the ones that are there look like they are easy to use.

Is it possible (or will it be possible with XIM4) to bind more than one button to the same thing?  Like could mele be tired to two different mouse buttons?

The G700 has 4 buttons on the side but the look like they are set farther back. Anyone with big hands know if the side buttons are comfortable to use?

I had a g700 and i didnt like the feel of it. Went to my current razer mamba and love it. I find it has better control than that g700 for aiming and just feels better in my hand.  Its also dual sensor. Using it on a razer vespula mouse pad on the rough control side and its easy headshots everyday :-)

I am digging my G700s right now.  Came from Razor.  Like the feel, buttons are all useable and well positioned for me.  Didn't take me very long at all to get the feel of it.

I went to Best Buy today to get my hands on some of these and the G700 definitely felt the best in my hand.  The side buttons were perfectly placed and the shape was well suited for my big hands.

I personally did not like the razer deathadder I dont like its design it feels like its always slipping out of my hand. I like to be able to grab the entire mouse and its impossible to grasp the deathadder I bought about 4 mice and they all feel the same I think its because their too long and whenever I try and grab it I accidentally click the buttons on top I cannot find a mouse to fit my style and im tired of wasting money trying new ones

The bottom row of buttons on the G700 are kind of hard to press without accidentally also pressing the top buttons in my experience.

I'm just curious!
I currently have and use the G9x. I would like to know if having a higher DPI like 8200 is better than having a 5700 DPI for gaming with a XIM?
