That's laughable. The Avagao 3888 sensor the DA uses is far better than the Avago 9500 sensor the G9x uses which has positive acceleration which is inconsistent on some surfaces.

G9x is a great mouse for FPS games and especially for claw grip

The DA is better for precision. As I said, I tried the G700 which uses the same sensor as the G9x, and I can notice the difference in precision, another reason why my G700 is sitting on the shelf next to me, and the DA is on the desk. It's probably the best thing Razer ever made.

Razer doesnt make products (espiecially mice) that are horrible in performance, they just make stuff that are unreliable & have poor customer service at times. But, I have my DA for a year plus now, and it is still going strong.

Going for razer stuff is so much risk.

The more you use your mouse, the more you will realize the less weight the better. Adjustable weights are pretty gimmicky and useless.

Get a deathadder, best sensor on the market, solid mouse. Can't go wrong. G9x has built in hardware acceleration that is inconsistent. It cannot be disabled. It is not a great mouse for serious FPS gaming because of this (and it's noticeable, I have a mouse using the same sensor, and folks who say it's great probably aren't very good at FPS games or particularly serious about them or sensitive to their equipment).

As far as keyboards go, get a mechanic keyboard. Easier on your hands and better response time. Plus much more durable. The Razer Blackwidow is mechanical, Steelseries makes mechanical keyboards as well (they are superior to the Razer's for gaming I'd say but not general typing, but it's pretty subjective and both are good, the SS keyboard has a weird model # for a name that I don't recall off hand).

Acceleration on Avago 9500 is very minor and only few people can feel it. As you may know a lot of pro FPS gamers use Avago 9500-sensor mice.

But DA and G9x are very different mice in terms of the shape.
So: G9x for claw grip, DA for palm grip.

My personal opinion: DA's shape is crap, but sensor is the best.

Must be people with no hand eye coordination, as it's pretty noticeable. I am saying this based on 1st hand experience, I own a G9x.

Such as???? I don't know of any that do by choice. Some do because of sponsorship requirements. It is very noticeable as well.

Shape is relative the size of your hands and preference to an extent. DA is fine for claw grip if your hands aren't small for example.

I don't delve too deep into the technical aspects of mice, but I can tell you that I have a G9 (bought right before the G9X came out, doh!) and I've absolutely loved it. I'm a fingertip gamer, and it suits me perfectly when I use the wider rubberized grip. I dislike the thinner hard plastic grip personally. I use it will full weights since I like heavy mice generally...

For the price it can be found at, it's just a really good complete package. As a 1st gaming mouse it will do it's job wonderfully.

+1 recommendation for the G35 headset to round out the package. Can't comment on their keyboards since I've never had one.
