Not only that I don't wanna wait until the 15th this month to get that mouse. Another reason I'm iffy of this mouse is that it's not released til the 15th from what I can tell, so that's making me curious as to why people can highly recommend that mouse
Naw you can just get used to the a new CPI.
If you play any games you can just use a simple math formula so you can set a new sensitivity. For example, 1000 CPI and a sensitivity of 10 is the same as 500 CPI and a sensitivity of 20 or 2000 CPI and a sensitivity of 5. There are calculators available online if you're too lazy to set up the ratios yourself.
If you don't play any games and just use the desktop and are used to something like 1400 or 1600 CPI. You can just set your mouse to 2000 CPI and set the windows pointer speed in the control panel to 5/11, which'll ignore every 4th input, giving you 1500 DPI.
Puretrak's been open about their mouse. Most of the stuff that I use to judge a mouse, they've already released about their mouse. My two main concerns are whether they messed up the firmware and whether or not they're lying about the mouses mass.Edited by cuad - 5/2/11 at 3:45pm
