It just seems like every laser mouse comes with a ton of caveats to use from swipe speed, to mousing surface, whereas optical mice pretty much work on everything but it's hard to find one with high polling rate OR a high DPI.

The answer is quite simple, actually. A large majority of casual players are misinformed into thinking DPI means accuracy. Therefore, a bunch of uninformed people buy these crappy mice, the company sees this and makes more for them. Most of these gamers aren't even proficient enough to notice the massive flaws in the mice. If all of them stopped buying garbage then we'd actually have quality products being forced out.

How fast is the perfect controls speed because I don't fully understand if i personally need to go to 250hz or i still have perfect control at 1000hz because my sensitivity isnt very low.

Take a look at this.


I myself am a high sensitivity user and I measured my in-game top speeds to be:

My Cm Storm Spawn Experience

I was in need of gaming mouse was really keen on the dethaddar 3.5G but the spawn with same spec's and adns 3090 I had to try it and the grip looked good on it and especially after people suggesting zowie Am cause it comes out in December.

so I bought the deathaddar 3.5 G tested it for 10 days.
It was a great mouse but I had to return and try the spawn.

Conclusion I don't think I'll be returning the spawn.

http://www.cmhd.tv/index_blog.php/cm-storm-spawn-latest-and-greatest-optical-sensor/1553

http://www.zowiegear.com/component/content/article/203

spawn is basically the zowie Am but better grip is my conclusion both use ADNS-3090 both 1.5 m LOD.

Instantly noticed Spawn is so much more easier to control and so light and fits hand like a glove , deathaddar feels clunky and big compared to it. I didn't think weight or what the shape of mouse was mattered but the spawn is perfect fit of any hand normal size hand and I don't really have a claw grip the mouse just fits I would say my hand is average size.

I use 3500 dpi and 500hz

that's why I also bought the deathaddar first than spawn.

also they fixed the 800hz problem with 30a firmware.

but who would use 800hz? anyway I find 3500dpi more accurate on deathaddar and spawn. after trying both in 14 day period.

Note: this was first gaming mouse I ever bought.

also I dont use a mousepad but the spawn slides better on my desk. but actually I'm probly gonna buy a mousepad now.

The mouse is definitely better at 3500 dpi. Though it's personal preference, most have found that lower dpi the better the accuracy. If you've checking out the SC accuracy practice thread you'd seen that most that used lower than 1800 are able to get the most accurate and quickest tries in. More sensitive gaming means the less the mouse movement would equal the same discrepancy, this leads to a less accurate mouse point.

Of course all personal pref. I've seen some awesome programmers in korea use high sensitivity as well and do great. Just technically speaking a lower dpi is usually more accurate.

Wow I wanted to throw up after reading the first paragraph. Adding Zowie to the list of manufacturers to stay away from along with Razer and SteelSeries.

I don't think that you know what you're talking about.
