Any suggestions? I've also looked up the Deathadder btw, but its kind of pricey. Maybe ill be able to find some discount on Amazon.de, gotta check.
P.s. its kind of obvious I don't care about built-in macros and such stuff. I always used to play with very basic mice.

Did you checked the Chinese webshops as well ? Last time i checked the deathadder was about 22 euro's / 25 US Dollar. Ofc genuine

Hmm Chinese online resellers...why do I happen to think it seems shady stuff to say the least? :p I'm checking tho.
Edit: I checked on gearbest (I guess that was the name?) and prices seem lower at 45 $ but I wouldn't still buy stuff from the other side of the planet because of warranty (which kind of warranty does it have, Chinese, worldwide, etc? what happens if it breaks down? Do I have to pay shipping fees to it get back to them on my own?).

I've also noticed that Mionix itself sells the stuff from Sweden across Europe, with *free* shipping costs. And it ships with FedEx :) .

Yea, warranty is a problem, since eventhough it is 12 months, you gotta ship it back to the seller and pay for this. So when its broken, besides dead on arrival, you gotta buy a new mice. Look at this shop. They advertise that its possible to register the razer product, so it is genuinehttp://nl.aliexpress.com/item/Razer-Deathadder-3500DPI-gaming-mouse-Brand-new-Fast-free-shipping-Without-Retail-packing/1346150494.html?spm=2114.010208.3.10.vHNTv4&ws_ab_test=searchweb201556_7,searchweb201644_3_505_506_503_504_301_10020_502_10001_10002_10017_10010_10005_10006_10011_10003_10021_10004_10022_10009_10008_10018_10019,searchweb201560_1,searchweb1451318400_-1,searchweb1451318411_6451&btsid=35f2ff29-0273-46a4-becb-e85bea797c88

Well, at least it can be registered but I would still not buy there. I'm already going for a Mionix mouse.

I've bought from aliexpress many times, never had a problem they haven't been able to fix. Have had some issues, but I've always got a refund (only once a partial one).
With that said, I don't think any of those items have warranty.

And if you've already decided, it doesn't matter anyway :)

Yap, I just ordered it...Mionix is a really small swedish company, somewhat "close" to you :D btw, they seem to have grown up a lot in just a couple years.

Aww...now I'm drooling. Is it the one you use daily for playing?
Yep, +/- 200 hours of gamming - I bought it relatively recently and I love it already.
But I see that you've already decided ... you don't know what you're missing...
What if you could change the world by changing your perspective of it?
Would you?

Ive checked their site as well. Kinda pricy as well (50 to 100 euro's). Which one have you exactly bought?

I bought the Castor, the avior costs the same but it has a bit bigger body shell. They're pricey indeed, but I can assure you the deatheadder doesnt come much cheaper than 50/55 euros, at least from Amazon.it .

Unfortunately the Kone Xtd is quite bigger compared to the mouse I use right now. The Castor instead is closer in size (and weight) to my old Logitech, and it also costs less. As I said tho, the Xtd still looks as a solid great looking mouse with neat features.
