I'm talking like Razer's on-the-fly (see my OP) - I have the two side buttons set to what you're describing, then press + roll the scroll wheel to control a speed slider (think windows pointer speed with smaller increments). I adjust it for almost every game I play, so I dunno how well I'd like a mouse without it.

I have the Razer Mamba and love the grip. I will say that it was very uncomfortable until I got a wrist rest. My hand went from being at a 45 degree angle with my arm to about 5-10 degrees. That might be one of your problems if you don't already have a rest.

Otherwise, I would suggest a piece of steel rebar cut to your pinky's length and duct tape to hold it on there. biggrin.gif

The Naos 5000 feels AMAZING but the caveat is that it is palm only, the pinky rest gets in the way horribly if you try to claw it.

The 3200 has an issue with something that I can't remember, check the sensor list in this section.

If your palm only you won't regret spending $90 on it but your also going to need a hard black pad in which case Mionix's own Propus 380 is relatively cheap and also my favorite pad... I use it with my g500.

I don't see anything listed under the 3200, but the 5000 has a questionable 5% positive acceleration listed...

I use this mousepad tongue.gif

There's the Ikari but it has issues as well, or older Logitech mice if you absolutely must-have no acceleration. The Zowie EC1/2 have prediction but no acceleration, but there's only 3 stages and no drivers(a good thing).

Coming from DA your going to have to make some cuts because most mice have issues with the sensor.

Like I said if you want a pinky rest the feel of the Naos is impeccable especially with full rubber coating, it's also packaged extremely nice and simple and has excellent software if you like installing drivers.

The 3200 I read somewhere, maybe some threads and some reviews on NewEgg about something negative I don't feel like looking around for it.

If you wan't an upgrade on quality, and feel for your pinky, get a Logitech g500.

It has your stages, it has the BEST dpi switch location to the immediate left of your pointer finger near the front. I use it all the time.

The acceleration is barely barely barely noticeable but if your looking for a solid upgrade from the DA, with good dpi options and solid sensor with more hand support for cheaper than Naos:

There's always the optical version of the Ikari. Prediction yes, but that's more preference than anything. It performs solidly on cloth (high almost unreachable perfect control), but seems to malfunction early on a wooden table, at least from my experiences.

As for the G500 and it's acceleration, I'm going to have to disagree.

The thing performs like you've described on hard surfaces, but if you're using a low sensitivity, the inconstancy can be somewhat annoying. The main problem with this sensor is it's incompatibility with cloth. The mouse looses perfect control and malfunctions way below it's rated specifications and yes, they're reachable with normal gameplay.

The ADNS-9500 is really user dependent.
