Quote:I'm not just a casual gamer, i used to play cs 10-14 hours a day a few years back. I know exactly what i'm talking about, but i can't describe the feeling (not to mention my english is limited). If you would give me another mouse and do that test, probably i can't tell if it's 500 or 1000. But if we use MY SETUP then i will tell you each time exactly what polling rate i'm using. When you play thousands of hours with 500 Hz and then switch to 1000 you "feel" the difference immediately.
Quote:I'm not talking about what i can see with my eyes. When you increase the refresh rate on a monitor you can feel the cursor becomes smoother. Especially when you go from 60 Hz to 120 Hz. By now the mouse is part of my hand and i can feel even an increase of 50 DPI in sensitivity.
Just because you guys can't feel these differences, doesn't mean it's just in my mind. I wouldn't use one polling rate over another if i don't see the difference clearly.
