Question for low sens FPS veterans

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I've been using the Deathadder 3.5g for about a year and I've been staring at my Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical that's hangin on my wall for 12 months...

Over 20k frags with both mice but I can't decide!

I miss my WMO! should I go back to the basics?

No problems with either. Fingertip grip, so naturally the WMO is better suited being lighter/smaller. HOWEVER, the WMO has crappy switches...

Well, the DeathAdder is a better mouse in all technical aspects, but if you prefer the M$ mouse there's no reason not to. If you play better with it, what's the down side?

I guess I'm just lazy to find the windows 7 polling rate patch... WMO sucks without 500hz polling, anyone got the link please?

err you know what my problem is? the DA looks too fancy, I think I'll just turn off the lights on it!

Personally, I couldn't imagine fps gaming without my deathadder now. So comfortable for my huge hands. But heck, go with whichever you like, because that's what really matters!

You may also want to try an Abyssus. Same great sensor as the Deathadder in a superior shape for your grip.

Wow... I had forgotten how light the WMO really is

I can't remember why I bought the Deathadder in the first place, the WMO is close to perfect!

[edit] I remember before I bought this DA I noticed negative accel from the WMO (500hz) when doing 180 flickshots but as I've raised my sens slightly in the past year I haven't noticed it yet

The Deathadder 3.5G has been known to jitter on some cloth pads. I experienced the same and managed to find a 3G some time ago. Supposedly new firmware takes care of this problem, check Razer's site.

I remember hearing about that issue, but I've never experienced it myself. It was just placebo effect, I have both hooked up atm and I don't notice any difference in tracking
