jumpy mx518 would a higher dpi mouse help?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So i am always noticing that my mx518 (1600dpi) is jumpy like when i move it very slowly in a game it is not smooth but seems to jump small amounts, it has always annoyed me but i am finding it to be extremely noticeable in battlefield 3. Is this because it is not a very high dpi mouse? i am thinking about getting the logitech G9x (5700dpi) or razer deathadder (3500dpi) would they help and if so which one should i get?

Thanks in advance

I've read that there is a button on the mouse that changes the dpi from 400 to 800 to 1600, have you messed with that at all? Other than that uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers may help.

Good luck!

A higher CPI mouse won't help you in any way that you might be thinking. It wouldn't help you at all. Your MX518 is just busted somehow.

Sounds like jitter, DPI has nothing to do with it. Start with making sure the sensor is clean. If that doesn't work, then change your mouse surface.

You're most likely seeing the stutter involved with the basic 125hz polling rate that the MX518 uses. Raise the polling rate to 500hz and see if the stuttering is gone.
