what does the sensitivity slider in the razer drivers do? does it override windows senstivity or does it add another layer of sensitvity?

The default settings are: 1800 dpi, 500 hz, and no prediction. You can install new firmware if you want prediction, which razer calls "drift control".

The drivers directly change windows sensitivity and acceleration.

I have one in perfect condition sitting on my shelf gathering dust.

There's a seller on amazon selling 3G deathadders. I believe he's selling 3G V2 versions since that's the box he has on his listing.

Did you try putting some scotch tape on it? I threw some scotch tape on mine and it lowered the LOD. I'm not sure how much it lowered it as I never did a before and after measurement, but it was enough for me.

The scotch tape fix works great for lowering LOD. Unfortunately it scratched up my mousepad pretty badly.

I ended up selling my 3.5/BE deathadders to friends. Did you take any measurements on how high the LOD was post-tape fix? I think it'd make a great addition to the thread.

I have DA 3g which has 1 cd lod which is now Kinzuadder
I bought DA BE for nice rubber feel at side but I was disappointed with too much smooth rubber. LOD is as low as 1 cd on my 3.5g DA BE! wink.gif

Then after a month this problem generated.

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uctlq8BS9Yg[/ame]

But my problem was started on the right click. It was really annoying.
So didnt wanted to waste my time sending it to Razer. smil3dbd4e4c2e742.gif
So I opened it and install old 3g top Shell on the top! bingo problem solved.

But another problem came through that buttons became too sensitive. I just have to give very low force to click and I like solid clicks like DA BE or Mx518 / G400 or Xai.

Thrown away in the drawer. mad.gif

I have Hyperglides on top of the stock skates, so my LOD would be a little different than most. It's also probably the reason why I haven't had the same issue with the tape screwing up my mousepad.

Haha, awesome choice dude. The MX518 and DA:BE are two of my favorite mice. Your aiming will be off for about a week since the DA:BE doesn't have prediction. Your hand will also feel cramped if you ever try to go back to the MX518 formfactor.

I've tried pretty much all the big name mouses and the DA has the best sensor by far. In extremely twitch games I found the DA performs pretty much perfect with no positive or negative acceleration and the lack of prediction does make a difference in precision shots.

I don't know if you meant 3G, but the 3.5G never had a "Drift control" firmware tongue.gif

Lol, thanks for the correction wink.gif. I'm far from a firmware expert.
