post #1341 of 2478
I somehow managed to find one brand new in box DeathAdder 3G (Guild Wars edition) at a local shop and snatched it up fairly cheap. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet but if I end up using it I have some questions.

Is there a particular firmware that's seen as optimal? I know there's ones with and without prediction (I prefer without) but I'm not sure if one version # has other advantages or fewer problems than the rest. I've read some people have had their mouse completely bricked by a failed firmware update, so is an update even worth chancing? Also, would it be wise to buy a 3.5G model now to have a replacement shell ready just in case, or do you think they'll still be readily available in the future if something happens? I assume they're discontinued at this point.

1.39NDC is what you want. thumb.gif
and don't use driverversion 3.05, but use 3.03 instead.
3.05 has a bug where the cursor stops for some millisecons every 5 seconds or so.

Thanks, got that up and running. Have to wait for some new mouse feet in the mail before I give it a spin though. The drag out of the box is too much.

I prefer firmware 1.27. for some reason it just seems to work better. I agree with driver 3.03, and you certainly should indeed get some extra feet to stack up on top of the originals.

What's working better with 1.27 over 1.39? I had no problem with 3.03 and 1.39.

Slightly higher polling rate. I have tested 1.27, 1.28 and 1.35 all of these give full 1000Hz.

Does anyone have a DeathAdder 3G that they'd like to sell, or know where to find them? I'm having a serious problem trying to find one and my google skills are pretty good...

I'm in the USA. Zero listing for that stuff on eBay, except if you consider the PC-Bang edition stuff good which I assume it isn't

is it just mine, or is the DA 3.5G like total crap on a black QcK in general?

i mean on my razer gol. speed i can flick it around as fast as i want, and it never freaks out, but on my qck heavy it freaks out regulary when i do 180° flicks.
never thought the 3.5G is so different performancewise compared to the 3G version. frown.gif

aww... frown.gif

well, that is strange, it happens only on my qck heavy i use as main mousepad, but not at all on an old one.
i notice that the new one i use mainly, has some sort "glittering" in the surface, like some coating.
does yours have that too?

i thought i had already finished my senseiadder, but now i'm unsure if the sensor is good or not.(never should have taken a 3.5G for it mad.gif)
