There are other things. In comparison with CM Storm Spawn:
The cord is light and thin but stiff. Feet are good but in mine G400 they aren't flat. Maybe amount of glue isn't the same at every place? Spawn's feet are flat and a bit thicker. Main buttons are harder to press and louder than in Spawn which has light and quiet buttons (Omron switches too). The scroll is harder to press and distance to activate 3th button is larger. It's rotating easier and a bit loose, Spawn's scroll is best I've seen in a mouse. G400 is heavier than Spawn (of course - bigger) and it isn't balanced that well. The front weights more than the back. CM Storm spawn has better overall build quality in my opinion, but G400 feels very good too.

Looks like a robot's child, baby robot lol biggrin.gif I mean, I dont think that mouse will be comfortable at all, and I dont get impressed by the look of one product, when I buy things for particular purposes, I always look at the comfort they provide.
Maybe its comfortable for somebody, buy not for me, and yes havent even tried it, but as well as I can see, it will most definitely be uncomfortable.

Best mousepad for G400 ? I was told that cloth and plastic pads both work equally well for optical mice, unlike laser mice - they are only good on plastic pads if im not mistaken. Anyway, I was told SS QcK is the best (or one of the best possible) for G400, and most optical mice.. So what do you guys think?

It works, but wears out quickly.

Where are you located in the world so that I could recommend a bunch of pads.

Definately disagree.

Btw, I've wanted to buy Spawn or Xornet for long time, but their sensors don't seem to perform very well.
I'm a low-sens gamer...

Well i dont know about the wearing out, recommend the best pad possible for optical mice / G400 in particular.

Hi, I'm coming with input a little late but I hope this helps.
I used to be competitive CS player since 1.6 was launched and before that I used to play for fun since 1.1. Had my days on source and stopped because of college and work.
By the way, I'm Brazilian, and I had the opportunity to play with highly known players like the guys from MiBr (made in brazil) and fG (fire gaming) on the 1.6, as well as vsONE, sXgaming and other great teams from Brazil.

First of all, in a short answer, the best option for you is what feels natural in your hands and has a quality sensor.

By quality sensor I mean the basic thing we used to say: if you perform a fast movement and the cursor "bugs" (doesn't respond, make random movements and end up in the sky/ground) it's not a quality sensor. If you do perform a fast movement and the cursor follows, you are good to go.

Furthermore, the funny thing is I only met one or two guys that were hardware enthusiasts like me and not even they knew all about mouses. By this I mean that those players on MIBR or fG that won the world cup had no idea what mouse prediction was, didn't care for laser or optic sensor, double sensor, on the fly sens, driver sweets, firmware updates, etc. All we did was buy a mouse, get used to it and use the same sens always on windows, in-game and DPI settings all of our life.

By the way, I got used to the razer copperhead, ones of my teammates used the krait, which isn't even sold anymore for a while.
The guys in MiBr all use the simple microsoft intelimouse 1.1. I asked them why, they said it was because they got used to it because it was the mouse available on the cyber-cafe they used to play on their early days.


All in all, I hope this helps you and anybody looking to get serious in any kind of gaming. Forget all the specs that can even sound like marketing gimmick for many pro players and look for a mouse that should fit your hand, feels natural, and then just use the same settings for your whole life.

It isn't large difference and the cord add some weight too so it's hard to measure it accurately. It's just my feeling when I'm lifting the mouse. I doesn't feel this way with other mice I've tried. There are many buttons and scroll in front of the mouse. Either way I prefer to have slightly unbalanced mouse than if they would add some additional weight to make this even.

Deathadder, yes. Why? Precision, control, accuracy, amazingness, can be tweaked nicely with the drivers.
