So true!

Also a good mouse pad will work wonders.

What tracking issues do laser mice have? I believe you it's just that I've heard that the deathadder 3.5g has great tracking.

But the deathadder isn't laser.

Use a dpi between 400-1000 and you'll be fine. Your hand can't be more precise than roughly that.

There is no difference in max speed using hardware or interpolated 900 CPI.

Everything over 6/11 yes, but 1/11 - 4/11 are ok.

Too low a DPI for your sensitivity preference can cause pixel skipping
There isn't such thing as pixel of movement or pixel skipping.

NO IT ISN'T. The older 3G and the newer 3.5G deathadder are both optical mice.
