What was your reason for RMAing your mouse? I've been having issues that the buttons are double clicking. However it's intermittent (same with my keyboard actually). Wondering if it's worth the trouble of rma.

Because the coating was starting to fall off. You could try to contact support and hear them?

So I picked up the Sensei pro the other day (I was sick of all the problems I was having with my Spawn skipping). This mouse has so many options to change, it's crazy. The response feels solid and the tracking feels really smooth on my QCK+ (might have to also give my 4HD a go).

That being said. I wanted to get some clarification on a few things, I'm currently using the cArn profile from the drivers, which has been feeling pretty solid, however I noticed that this, along with many of the other profiles have the polling rate set to 500Hz. I was reading on the SS site that they recommend 500Hz, while lots other places say that 1000Hz is the way to go. Now I'm hearing lots of conflicting evidence on this matter, so I'd like to know what the best polling rate to use is. I've heard that 500Hz is more stable, and that 1000Hz is supposedly jittery? Likewise, I've heard that 1000Hz is the way to go since it's much more responsive. What's everyones thought's on this?

Secondly, the cArn profile has DPI set to 1170, some people say that you should always use the max DPI(5700? or 11400) of the sensor, and just turn down in game, while others say that you should just drop the DPI down a bit, and use 1 sensitivity for 1:1 precision, and the rest say that it doesn't really matter. I've heard some word about DPI steps of the avago9500 sensor, should I be setting my DPI to a number within one of these DPI steps? Or does it not even matter for the Sensei?

Finally, if there's any other settings people recommend for the best performance I can grab out of my new Sensei, I'd love to hear. I've been reading around and people really mention that there's 5%-10% acceleration which is really inconsistent, but I haven't run into anything like that (and I'm coming from the Spawn, which uses the 3090), who know's maybe I'm just lucky.

Have you tried fw 61 for Spawn?

I would set Sensei like this:
FPS games: 400-800 DPI, 500 Hz
for everything else: 1200-1600 DPI, 125 Hz

Yeah, I've used all of the firmwares from CM, 30, 31, 32, 60, 61, same issue. I would have had to spend money to ship the mouse to CM, so i picked up the Sensei pro for 40 on the weekend.

What's the reasoning that you suggest the 400-800/ 500Hz in gaming, and then 1200-1600/ 125Hz for other stuff? does the mouse track much better in the 400-800 range or something?

Sensei tracks well above 800 DPI but some FPS games don't use raw input method so I think it's safer to always set 400-800 DPI for consistency between different games. 1200-1600 is comfortable desktop DPI for me, you should set value that feels good for yourself. 1000Hz polling rate is marketing gimmick just like 11k DPI. Do not use max DPI and do not set 1.0 sensitivity it doesn't give you any real advantage.

It have nothing to worry about acceleration. With my experience, sensei have most perfect sensor . just config 500hz and play everything. standard system input 's only 125hz. With 1000hz, it's seem like stearing problem in monitor when vga send many fps than lcd frequency (That's just my opiniion) and will be jizztery

Has anyone experimented with the ExactAIm setting in the drivers? Some of the reviews I've been reading have stated that this setting has really helped out with aiming. I keep reading conflicting evidence saying that it's either negative acceleration of some sort, or that its supposed to reduce jitter?

What about the DPI steps? Some people are stating that you should be using a multiple of 90 for DPI, while others are saying that it doesn't matter, due to the processor. I'd like some clarification on this as well.

The FAQ and the product description page are inconsistent tongue.gif

The jitter correction (prediction) is FreeMove. ExactAim is negative acceleration at slow movement, and ExactAccel is positive acceleration at fast movement.'

I don't think you would experience much difference if you do not use multiple of 90 for DPI, this is for people who are sensitive of even the slightest interpolation.

Ah, thanks for clarifying.

Has anyone here used the ExactAim setting and had any positive results with it?
