I bet the driver/program running in background is what's causing it.
Yes I did. I'll see if I can clean it up and see if it makes a difference.

So your saying I'd be better off using a hard pad for my lasers? I have this sitting on my self. http://www.cshyde.com/c4web/C4Ngen.htm The artisan replaced it when I started buying opticals. That and the c4gen is wearing out.

Someone mentioned I wasn't playing precision games. Does COD:BOs count? Because same results.

Ok, thanks all. I don't think there is a definitive answer for this so I'm going to move on.

I've just have better results with Laser mice. It is what it is.

COD:BO does not count. Play QuakeLive and come back

EDIT: CSS is fine, but playing in pubs is honestly more of the issue. I can constantly spray in Source pubs and rack up kills. Pub players have very little in game smarts, and are normally just awful players.

Better change dem shoes
And make sure you're wearing a hat.

With that said, the fact that you cant notice/think that its not there, no making to sensor to be "Flawless".
Btw, accelration [positive/negative] may be not noticeable, not its not mean its not there, its still effects you..but you can get used to it and frag with it just as well as great optical sensors.
Like I said they are over-hyped on this forum. You know it really does not matter if the sensor is "flawless" if you can get used to it and game just as well as any other mouse.

Besides if laser mice are SO bad then why do companies still make laser mice? If optical is SO good then why are most optical mice lower quality then laser. The only quality optical mouse I know of is my Steelseries Ikari optical and even it is cheaper in terms of build quality then its laser counterpart. I gave away my MX518 because the DPI buttons sucked, they were hard to reach and hard to press. It was made of cheap plastic and the coating started pealing off.

Oh and you know I would buy a DA: BE if only it had a dedicated DPI switching button. Why does it not have this feature that one would think is standard in gaming mice these days?

If like you say the sensor does not matter then you can game just as well with either sensor, how then is optical superior if it doesn't make you a better gamer? I personally am going to buy the mouse with the higher build quality and wider set of functional buttons.

Welcome to professional FPS gamers' world where most of optical mice dominate laser mice.

http://www.esreality.com/index.php?a=post&id=1836580

Anyway, what kind of mice do everybody here like? It does not matter just go for it but when we compare them please use the statistics to prove why optical mice are better than laser mice and reverse.

DA:BE has a proven setup that works. You don't need a silly DPI switching button because you need to have a consistent sensitivity to build muscle memory.

Laser mice are being used because it allows higher DPI. Higher DPI translates to sales to the uninformed consumers who believe that you need more DPI to have better accuracy.

I've had my MX518 for over 4 years, the coating still hasn't came off. Only issue I ever had with it was the gunk that was produced on the left and right mouse button. A cloth to wipe it off every day and my problem was solved.

Look at any professional gamer, the majority use a optical sensor mice. I would say no more than about 5% of them are using a laser sensor. That ~5% that is using a laser sensor mice, are using the SS Xai.

Sensors in general are over-hyped on this forum. Their impact on performance isn't half that big as you could read here. In my opinion barely noticeable acceleration of ADNS-9500 (on hard surface) isn't a problem. For me the real issue is its sensitivity to dust and dirt.

I actually do better with my G5 than I do with my MX518. I agree that the sensors argument is over-discussed on this forum.

Some users say the avago 9500 has 5-10% acceleration on cloth pads, only noticeable by those low dpi players. I've tried mine on the QCK but I couldn't notice this at all.
Anyway I like low friction surfaces so I use a razer sphex (its like an adhesive skin, so it counts as a hard pad). With low friction you'll get less tired over time.

well people say the kinzu bad too but i performed with it better than my DA BE. It depends on the mouse shape and weight in some cases. My hands are big but cant aim with the deathadder shape.
