Dell stock mice 25/8.

Get a G9x or any other smaller mouse. Smaller/squatter mice work really well for this game.

You're legitimately suggesting a g9x? Those things are horrible.

Saw this big chart about mice awhile back.

Anyway, you just need a mouse with DPI higher than 2300 or else you'll find a hard time navigating on a big screen.
And like the sivart said, you need to turn mouse acceleration OFF or else you'll never come to terms with control.

NOW... inb4 bitching:
I'd recommend a mouse with a "high" lift distance as this helps you spin A LOT faster as the momentum of your spinning tends to lift the mouse a small amount off the mousepad and you won't loose tracking.

Most people would vote against this. But, for maps with lots of spinners, there's nothing quite like it. Unfortunately this existed in older mice, which makes it hard to find a new one which isn't discontinued. I'd still use my Logitech G3, if it didn't break through all these years :/

this may be true for you, but it isn't for everyone.

even if you turn it off, you won't be able to help it if you buy a mouse with hardware-based acceleration in the sensor itself, or other imperfections, which is what that chart above is trying to prevent.

I use a razer mouse but I really do not think it matters as long as its got a laser or bluelight sensor and you turn off mouse acceleration.
If you're getting a mouse specifically for osu! (aka a really accurate mouse), you might want to avoid laser mice and mice with blue sensors, since both are designed solely with surface compatibility (and pointlessly high DPI) in mind. Most, if not all, laser mice have a small amount of acceleration that becomes more noticeable the lower your DPI is. You can get more accurate mice by going optical, and I highly suggest using the lowest DPI that you find comfortable.

What's your reasoning behind this? Just curious.

Just because it works for you, doesn't mean it works for everyone. I use 800dpi at 1920x1080 and I still find it too sensitive sometimes (I used to play at 450dpi at 1366x768).

You might want to look at the DeathAdder 2013. As far as I'm aware, it's the only mouse available that has both a good sensor and an adjustable lift-off distance.

It actually has some motion delay due to the weirdly not-so-bad smoothing added onto the sensor. It's pretty easy to get used to though, and isn't as variable with muscle memory as laser sensors.

It's you who's supposed to spin the mouse, so the question is if you can "spin like osu".[/quote]

I think thats not it. the spinning circle is so small.. and some osu players can spin like it and i think
they are using some kind of device?? :?:

Well, it's either they spin small circles a lot or maybe tablet. I don't think there is a specialized mouse for osu, you just got to get used to playing with your current mouse and you can become Pro.

I think you can spin in small circle with any mouse. Just some tips, lower dpi or lower sensitivity settings might helps, because you can spin in small circle on the screen but actually you spin your mouse at big enough circle. The cursor might be slow but if you can spin at small circle will result in higher rpm. And turning off enhance precision will help you spin in a perfect circle (not oval) easier, because your cursor will follow your actual mouse movement (no cursor acceleration involved).

Any mouse works. If you're insistent on spending money for a mouse, I recommend Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical 1.1a.

It's only around $10 and blows expensive mice like razer out of the water. Only downside is lack of adjustable dpi but you can live with that.

Im currently using thermaltake azurues I bought it for 42U$ and it didnt break yet so I think this is great? (I play with mouse clicks so my last mouse broke really soon ...)

Don't need to spend too much on a mouse. Having over 9000 DPI is pointless for pretty much everything, just get a G400.
That new G400S looks pretty nice, you can also use different profiles for other games and normal use on the software.

Do you have a widescreen monitor? If you find yourself spinning ovals rather than circles because of this then reduce the dpi on your x axis and you should see an improvement.

There shouldn't be any reason why a widescreen monitor would cause you to spin ovals, unless you're using a stretched non-widescreen resolution, and in that case the spinner itself would be oval-shaped too.

For me it's better to find a mouse that fits your hand perfectly first, mind the sensor later. It doesn't have the most flawless one, just find an acceptable one.

Also expensive mice won't guarantee any skill boost. It's yourself that matters. I'd usually talk a lot about this kind of subject but I'm trying to keep myself simple here.
