Honestly, if they just replaced the stock feet with taller teflon glides and reduced LOD, would be the perfect mouse for most IME 3.0 users.
Still trying to figure if I'm better off at 450 DPI 6/11 or 1800 3/11 using MarkC Fix. Been reading that there is a lot of acceleration issues under 1800. Can anyone confirm this?
I've been using the 3g v2 DA for about a year and a half now and besides my own experiences I've also done a fair bit of "research" (ie trawling through a multitude of forum threads, reviews etc).
The front page of this thread doesn't actually say whether the BE is v3 pcb or v2 pcb but I'm assuming from the info given that it's v3 which means 450 dpi on your mouse will actually be 450 dpi and not 520 dpi (cheers for that info btw OP). In regard to your set up and question, I can provide the following info. Take it as you wish.
DAs perfect contol speed is lower at 900 dpi and lower still at 450 dpi - unless you're mister super swipe, this shouldn't be an issue. I've read a post from a pro CS player (Karrigan?) saying that he used the DA at 450 dpi with no issues. He also went on to say that most other pros he knew, that used the DA, used it at 450 dpi "one way or another" (meaning either 1800 dpi 3/11 or 450 dpi 6/11).
Stacking mouse skates reduces the DAs ability to track at high speeds.
Using scotch tape (cellotape to me;)) reduces the DAs ability to track at high speeds.
I would guess then, that stacking skates AND using scotch tape AND using 450 dpi is probably a bad idea, especially if you're mister super swipe ... but y'know ... give it a whirl.Mister super swipe here
.. claims acceleration problems at 450 dpi. I've not experienced this but haven't used it at 450 dpi extensively. I've also read that the mousing surface can sometimes cause this. Again, give it a whirl.
As I've said, during the periods of time where I've used the DA at 450 dpi, I haven't noticed any adverse acceleration BUT it always felt different and I could never get the speed right even with the correct dpi vs sens calculations. The OPs info that it's actually 520 dpi goes a long way to explaining this.
There are many many reviews with charts and graphs and many many forums with differing info. The majority of which will tell you what I've just told you. I can't think of anything else right now and this is the second typing of all this since my first attempt got completely wiped when I tried to submit = / grrr. I may have left something out but I hope what's here is of some use.
