Best small mousepad for a g500? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
I've just had a thought.

Surely, if the Avago 9500 has positive acceleration, then wouldn't the alleged negative acceleration on cloth negate it? Is this alleged negative acceleration on cloth greater than the sensor's acceleration?

When you move the mouse at a slow to medium speed you suffer from positive acceleration, when you move the mouse quickly on a cloth pad then you suffer from negative acceleration.

The positive and negative accel don't just cancel each other out. The 9500 tracks like a piece of garbage at all speeds.

And the acceleration isn't alleged, its a fact.

I personally think this is a little exaggerated. The negative acceleration is not present on hard surfaces. The positive acceleration is there, but its so slight that, even with the way I use the mouse (which usually exposes acceleration issues) the positive acceleration is minimal. It was quite easy for me to recreate the negative acceleration on cloth, but hard to notice the positive acceleration. I understand some people require more from their mouse and wont settle for it.

About the placement of the sensor to the front of the G500. This is something that isnt necessarily bad, but some people might not like it. It isnt the 1st mouse that has this, and personally I like it. It does change the way you use the mouse a little. Imagine that the sensor you are using is between your middle and index finger instead of the palm of your hand. If you move your hand to the right or left using just your wrist, the distance the sensor near your fingertips travels is much larger then the distance a sensor at the palm of your hand travels.

Because of this, at any sensitivity, you can more easily use your wrist to manipulate the cursor. Before getting used to it, it will feel a little bit as though it was positive acceleration (the cursor will end up further then you anticipated when flicking your wrist).

I have gotten used to it (on a previous as well as this mouse) and learned to appreciate this. It is now a feature I count as a plus, but only because of the way I use my mouse. Generally, I think people will view it as a negative point, since you dont want to relearn things for a peripheral, rather you'd ideally like that peripheral to suit your playstyle.

It just depends on what the person prefers,

I own tons of mice even the 1.1a and 1.1 Microsoft mouses which are too slow for me, they great mouse but i cant use them.

I also own the xai mamba heck alot of mouse which is too much too list but out of them all i like the g700 so far which i just got a day ago, Mainly for the comfort it gives which is very important too me now, But it preforms even as good as the xai performance wise.

My dpi range is around 1000 too 2500 most of the time. Any higher is pretty much too crazy for me lol well i can stand around 3000dpi but depends on the game i play.

But ya im loving the g700.


Because people use the 1.1a and 1.1 or a mouse they prefer doesn't mean every buddy needs or should switch too that mouse. Heck alot of people don't even have the problems or bothers them.

Right. Different speeds. Now I know. The sensor feels excellent to me, and I usually use a moderately high sensitivity as my desk space is limited. I don't swipe too quickly that often, so the whole negative acceleration thing doesn't phase me in the slightest. I've never been able to compare the G9x to anything else, so as far as I'm concerned, acceleration "issues" are just splitting hairs.
