Not sure if this makes any sense but; does using a lower DPI (e.g 400 DPI), provide a smaller margin for error, than if you used say 1600-1800 DPI? I was thinking about how it makes sense theoretically, but couldn't find any info when Googling it.

In terms of FPS games, its the same as using a lower sensitivity. One inch of error moves the mouse a lot more on 1800 DPI compared to 400 DPI. In CS:GO, 1 inch of error moves the cross hair way more on 5 sensitivity compared to 1 sensitivity. Does it lower the margin of error? Not sure, but on a bad day, your mouse movement mistakes will impact the game less if you use lower DPI or sensitivity. I would just leave the DPI at something you find comfortable for basic Windows browsing and use the in game sensitivity when worrying about margins of error. A higher DPI is not more precise than a lower DPI.

Eh, I only changed DPI from 400 DPI to 800 DPI to make Desktop browsing easier, I use 1.9 sens in-game @ 400 DPI / 1000Hz + rawinput, so it's not really a drastic change in DPI I guess.

Been getting this doubleclick bug, any of you gotten it? before it happened sometimes, but now it's happening so many times that I am thinking of getting a new mouse.

Basically clicking once, but apparently the mouse registers it as two clicks for some reason, also only happens with the left side.

Out of warranty?

Are the supplies needed to solder new switches on the mouse cheaper than a new mouse?

More than likely, probably just gonna get something when a mouse goes on sale or something, can't really afford a mouse at full right now.

Is it on the DA 2013/Chroma? There was a firmware update for it.

Double/triple/multi click issues are universal to all traditional mechanical switches. It doesn't matter if you are talking about a Razer Deathadder, a Steelseries Sensei, or even your Cherry MX Keyboard. They happen due to imperfections in manufacturing tolerances, bad debounce times, dirty switches, or fatigued metal within the switches.

The first is always a chance with any switch. The second is usually in the hands of the device manufacturer. Given enough use and time, the last two are inevitable and universal.

Firmware updates can help refine the debounce time. If you have a switch that is only slightly off, you might just get lucky there.

Otherwise, as I've said a thousand times and will say a thousand more, open up your mouse and clean the microswitches with electrical contact cleaner, and bend the springs back into shape if needed, or if they are particularly far gone you can remove the whole switch and solder on a new one. These are fairly simple and dirt cheap fixes / maintenance tasks that I feel everyone should become accustomed to unless they just want to buy new devices constantly.

Of course, as always, RMA before doing any repairs yourself, as long as it is still in warranty.

Do you think if Zowie had Firmware updates, they'd be able to avoid re-calling all of their new mice?
