    Roccat Mice?

    Has anyone had experience with Roccat mice, namely the Lua?

    http://www.roccat.org/Products/Gaming-Mice/ROCCAT-Lua/

    After a new mouse to replace the currently dying one (variable sensitivity, sometimes it momentarily stops moving all together for 1/10th of a second, baaaaaad for instagib in general)

    ******** to Razer and Steel Series, not saying they are bad mice but spending that much on a mouse doesn't seem in the spirit of the Quake (Any of the guys who played Quake and QII will know what I mean when many of us had systems that barely ran the game, we all played on dial-up, computers only came in off white and the only mice you could get had a ball and rollers)

    Cheers

    Logitech G400
    Compare with the Lua - Click Here

    This is the successor to the MX-518. It costs just $5 USD more than the Lua. (possibly cheaper shipped)
    Has DPI on the fly up to 3600, the Lua is only 2000
    8 buttons versus the 3 on the Lua.

    No reason to put yourself at a disadvantage for the sake of what was.

    SS kana is mid-price and is ok.

    Zowie AM and new Zowie FK are sorta expensive but everyone seems to like them.

    Unless you're willing to wait for the Ninox Aurora (which so far has been delayed over and over) I'd go with a Zowie mouse.

    Abyssus is nice for its price, if u don't need buttons under thumb. It's the only reason I am looking for a replacement.
    VG278HE@144Hz + EC2evo + Manticor + Lycosa+ SS Siberia v2

    QL doesn't need more tiers, it needs more players (С)

    DPI doesn't really matter Molester. Cyborg Rat 7 is expensive. You don't need the best mice for Quake. IMO you don't even need buttons on the mouse.

    You need 2 buttons, jump and shoot lol

    Went out and got a Logitech G400, nice and ergonomic like, good for those of us with a relaxed grip playing style.

    Still curious about the Lua but the mean salesman at the store wouldn't let me have a look at one inside the box to check the grip. Looking at the ones it may have been a bit narrow to keep a relaxed grip (ironically every other Roccat mouse had a transparent box except the Lua)
