Mouse kakked this weekend (kudos to red dragon though as it is a 5 year old mouse)

Looking for advice on what to buy.

Most games are fps.

Grip style: Palm

Budget: Under a grand

Options I like:

Steelseries 310
Glorious Model O (or O-) not really sure what the difference is
Corsair m55

So, weight is not an issue for me. I'm comfortable with a light or heavy mouse. Looks do play a part, ie I'd prefer an ambidextrous mouse over an ergo one, but it's not a deal breaker. The most important thing for me is performance per rand. I want a mouse that's accurate, and will perform well, without blowing the budget.

Since I've got a white theme going, a white mouse would be awesome, but also not a deal breaker.

Any and all advice / suggestions would be appreciated.

Cheers

Very chuffed with my Razer Deathadder Elite Chroma. Also a palm grip and its absolutely perfect for it, at least for my hand size.

Think you can pick them up for a good deal, saw them on the Evetech level up special for like 800 bucks if I recall correctly.

You really need to try out the mouse before buying them - it's like trying on a pair of shoes.
YOu don't know it fits till you try them out.

I purchased a SteelSeries Sensei and I hate it. I've tried 10 mice and the Corsair ones are pretty dope.

I got the M55 for R450 at Computer Mania a whil ago and I ain't a little bit disappointed.

I haven't tried the other two before, but what I can say is that I love my corsair very much, especially for that price.

Model O is just about always my answer if anyone poses a selection that includes the Model O
No different here.

Xtrfy M4 for me,
Fits perfect in my hand, comfy grip, nice and light, and handles nicely in FPS games on low DPI

Hand size matters allot, no real resource better than Zai
His new website and his top list

My personal choice for my hand is Logitech G403

I really like the Corsair Harpoon RGB. I got it in a bundle with the K55 Keyboard, but on its own I believe you can get it for around R400 or so. It looks sleek, and the design is comfortable and not overbearing with millions of hotkeys (although that can be nice depending on the game). In general its a nice all-rounder.
