The DeathAdder and G400 are two of the better palm grip mice. Imo go for the DeathAdder if you don't want prediction and the G400 if you do.
Almost exactly this.
I dont exactly consider it a "crappy" sensor, but its definitely not a sensor I would personally go with when there are better options.
The Avago 9500 has inconsistent positive acceleration when on soft pads, on hard pads the acceleration is consistent and around 1-2%. This also depends on the mice as well as different mice have different lenses.
The one positive thing about the Avago 9500 sensor is the extremely high max control and high malfunction speeds that no one should ever hit unless there a robot.
Deathadder, and G400 also have a very high max control and high malfunction speeds, granted not as high as some of the mice with the Avago 9500, but high enough for you to never be able to reach them unless you're trying to or a robot.
G400 is a mice you may want to stay with 400/800/3200dpi though. Personally 800/400dpi has never been a issue for me, nor should it be a issue for anyone else unless you're running a dual monitor setup.
A dual monitor setup would require you to have more than 800dpi. Otherwise your mouse will skip pixels.
Note: More DPI does not always equal more precision.
