need your expert thoughts on the cm spawn

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
what exactly does each of the firmware updates modify? Fw 30a, Fw31, Fw32...

does the magic tape fix for the deathadder work for the cm spawn as well?

if yes, then would it be advisable to stick with Fw30a to maintain tolerable perfect control speeds (higher in Fw30a ..?) while dropping the LOD using the magic tape fix?

thanks for your time... the people in this forum are awesome and ive been learning a lot...

There is no max perfect control speed difference between firmwares 30a and 32. The only difference is in LOD and tracking quality on different color surfaces.

is the max perfect control speed for all Fw versions really bad? far below that of the deathadder's?

Depends on what you consider bad.

thank you very much you have been extremely helpful... i will give this mouse a go...
2.69m/s is good enough for me and i can live with 250hz polling...

how are the numbers with soft mats like the QcK? what exactly is clipping? is the max count per poll value better if it is higher or lower? is 800 dpi on this mouse really unusable coz of the jitter? or was that fixed... lots of questions i know sorry lol

You should get the AM over the Spawn. Same sensor. Better shape and higher tracking rates.

Shape is subjective. I prefer the Spawn's shape to just about every mouse I've ever used. It takes a lot of getting used to though because it is quite unusual.

The Spawn doesn't really malfunction when you hit high speeds, it gets a lot of negative acceleration. Amazingly, I find it tolerable, perhaps even good for reigning in my really fast swipes and giving my more precision.

Mine malfunctioned violently causing the crosshair to immediately face the sky. That was at 1800CPI and 500hz though.

Mine had a very obvious difference in perfect control speed on my goliathus.
