What mouse has the best tracking between the Mico, the Abyssus, the Spawn ? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
The Spawn has the lowest perfect control speed (and it is really, really low), the Abyssus has jitter along specific angles on cloth and the Mico has a tiny bit of prediction and, as Derp mentioned, a weird tracking bug that I never actually encountered with it. I'd have to say that the Spawn has the worst sensor of all three by a pretty wide margin. You have to go out of your way to use it at certain DPI and refresh rate settings just to maximize it, then you have to dick around with a variety of different firmware versions depending on what color your mousepad is, it's just a pain in the ass.

The Abyssus jitter occurs only on a very specific type of movement that I never make while gaming. You have to rotate the mouse about 20 degrees from the vertical and then move it vertically on that new axis. Even when you hit the sweet spot, the jitter is not so bad on certain pads. On my QcK and Hien.G3, it's quite minor. On my Talent, it's gargantuan, up to a hundred pixels or more away from where it should be registering. Apparently there exist some Abyssus that don't jitter, though I've owned 3 and all of them have done it.

The Mico sensor is probably my favorite out of all of them. I have encountered no issues with acceleration or jitter or Derp's weird bug. Unfortunately, the Mico is probably my least favorite otherwise. The shape is incredibly small and will make any ordinary or larger sized hand cramp up. The buttons are very tactile, but with high actuation pressure which many people don't like. The wheel on it is also ****ty with very mushy tactile bumps compared to the Abyssus and Spawn (which probably has the best wheel in any mouse I've ever used).

Personally, I'm waiting for the CM Xornet to appear in the wild. It's got the same shape as the Spawn and presumably the same buttons and wheel, but it also has a different sensor and is cheaper and lighter (I think). There's no guarantee the sensor is better than the Spawn's, but since I've grown to like the Spawn's shape so much I really want to try it.

you may hate me for this but i've got the spawn and i wasn't very good using it for BC2.....i got better accuracy traking the enemy soldiers jumping around with the G500 (although i find it a bit tall). I"m sure it's just a personal thing....i thought i was a claw/finger grip user but for longer play i think i get more accuracy with the palm grip....i've actually put away the spawn.......

The spawn would be my second choice but only if you're a high sensitivity player that won't be moving the mouse too quickly. Avoid the 800 CPI step.

I can't recommend the Mico (Tracking bug in my review) or any mouse with the A9500 (Inconsistent positive acceleration) sensor because of bugs that are IMO unacceptable.
Why wouldn't the spawn be a good mouse for low sensitivity players? Care to explain? Thanks.

Because its perfect control speed is mediocre. I'm only a medium sensitivity player and I had mine malfunction on me twice in-game.

You can get it to track at higher speeds by lowering the polling rate but I need at least 500hz for the smoother feeling and the spawn simply couldn't keep up. The Mico and especially the Abyssus can track at much higher speeds.

For me the abyssus it was ackwardly tall
Yes it is a very serious flaw in all razer they are often high in size! But the worst is placement of cliques.

They are placed too high which hurts the fingers and not at all accurate in game when you play in claw grip or fingertip grip.



In fact I hate the tactile sensation of click-shaped husbandry I find them too sharp at the touch and too hard to operate have a the feel they are weak in contrast to the low cost logitech mouse I own (the Logitech rx250 ).



The Imperator of my little brother suffers from double click it does have that for 1 year and he paid dearly.

I tested the Imperator intensive in Crysis Wars and I can tell you that this mouse is 1000 times less accurate and efficient ingame as my modest RX250, she has a fabulous ergonomic (it is very small oval-shaped, very short and low)

Yet I found the laser sensor (Philips twin-eye sensor) of the Imperator accurate and fast but the ergonomics too clumsy penalizes her completely !

In short a mouse performance is primarily ergonomics plays 90% of its precision Q.E.D ^^

No wonder the world's best esport players win with MX500, G1 etc ...

the Mico mousefeet too small though
Not just the handling of Mico air even better than perfect Spawn is already very small in May too wide on the side I think.

The shape of the Mico is very similar to my Logitech RX250 which I appreciate enormously this type of grip.

Indeed many former pro players and clawgrip fingertips of quake 3 and counter find that ergonomics (the same as g1, MX300 and g7) is the best to win competitions.

Now the current mouse as the G400 deathader intellimouse 1.1, 3.0 and Steelseries Xai are much too large and therefore focused palm grip.

Players do not like big mouse is a fact I rarely see a competing use Deathadder oe Xai they prefer to use the Kinzu.

Yet I see still use Intellimouse or MX518 as it is super big I conclude that they must surely be users palmgrip.

Sorry for my english i use google translator its sh***y ^^

Is the CM storm spawn good for someone with this grip? Hybrid palm/fingertip/claw

As you said, personal preference, im getting ~24-32% Accuracy with Spawn, and ~21-29 while using Palm Grip Mice

I have a Razer Aybssus and it's a very smooth and comfortable mouse. The first gaming mouse I've ever had but it exceeded my expectations. I also like to up the DPI setting in games which provides a smooth gaming experience. Also, not too much hurt on your wallet compared to other gaming mice.

That looks a lot like my grip. I consider mine a finger/claw grip and the only reason I'd throw in the palm like you do is becuase my hands are smallish so the huge majority of mice touch the back of my palm, like in your picture.

Anyway, I have the Spawn mouse and due to my hand size I find it a little bit to wide. Otherwise it would have been perfect. So it now sits unused on my desk while I switch between a few other mice trying to decide which one I like the most.

How long and wide are your hands? Thought the spawn looks pretty small.
