Hi I'm kinda new to this but I wanted to share my thoughts on this issue since yesterday arrived my new SPAWN, and I gotta say that so far this is the best quality for value mouse that i ever had, considering it only cost me around 30 euros where i live.
I tested this mouse with the following pads:
- Razer Scarab (hard, silver colored, diamond like plastic) - VERY slick, as you'd expect from a hard surface, the mouse literally glides over it but there's a bit of loss in controll sometimes because of the speed. No tracking issues whatsoever, at least not from what i saw\\felt ingame.
- Razer Goliathus Speed Fragged Alpha (extra large cloth) - good compromise between control and slickness, no tracking issues whatsoever, not even where the big green razer splat is.
- SteelSeries QCK (cloth) - offers a bit more resistance in glide than the Goliathus, tracks also very good.
- Cyborg V.3 (silicone) - lots of controll but not so slick, was sometimes hard to move the mouse over it's surface when doing slower and more precise movements. Felt very sluggish at times, would not recommend it to anybody.
All at out of the box settings: 500hz pooling, 1800dpi, angle snapping turned off @ 30a fmw (windows7 mouse pointer speed at 6/11 and all accel. turned off with the MarkC fix). Lift off distance for all these pads was the same at around 4-5mm(i tried to measure it with a plastic ruler, but maybe i did wrong, lol).
Those are ofcourse my own sujective observations and if anybody got some recommendations for software that would allow me to test the responsiveness and tracking more synthetically and thoroughly than please say so and I'd gladly check it out.
