SS Experience I-2 (White)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just got this yesterday, took a while because the only White version I could find was from the UK Amazon. Anyways, one of the mice I was planning on using it with was my Kana but it doesn't track well at all on it... it constantly skips. All my laser mice seem to work well on it, has very little impact on lift-off distance.

But on the two optical mice I tried, Kana and G400, it does reduce the lift-off distance quite significantly - which is why I got the white version. The G400 went from around 5mm LOD on my Scarab to about 1mm on the I-2, and it still tracks well when touching it. For some reason the Kana just won't track well, it feels like it needs another 1-2mm.

So my question is if the black version would do better for the Kana?

I also ordered the Kinzu V2 Pro, will that have the same issue with the White I-2 or does it use a different sensor than the Kana?

I use the black I-2 and my Deathadder also has very low LoD on it (less than 1 CD). At 1800 DPI when you draw lines in paint you can clearly see that it has some amount of jitter in combination with the I-2 though, so it's not tracking perfectly on it either.

About the Kana and Kinzu V2... yes they use the same sensor but iirc a different lens so can yield different results.

Just out of curiosity does your G400 jitter a little at higher DPI levels when you draw lines in paint or is it working fine? And which other laser mice did you use?

I tried my Xai and G400 both at 1600dpi:

Both are a little jittery, the Xai probably because the tracking quality isn't that good anyway and with the G400 I'm not sure. I'm a little lazy to check the G400 threads if it's generally a bit jittery at 1600 DPI or if it's because of the I-2. Anyway the sensor in my Deathadder is also from the Avago 3xxx family and also jittering a bit on the I-2. So it might be that this pad just isn't working so well with any optical sensors out there.

If anything I would think the Xai would have better tracking quality than the G400. As for the jitter I'm going to go ahead and say it's the mega low lift-off distance that's caused by the surface.

I had a DA 3G with the original skates on it and it "worked" fine on the I-2 (although the malfunction speed dropped significantly, maybe due to the low lift-off as well). I picked up a pair of the HD Perfect Glides from PureTrak which are a little thicker than the original skates and now my DA won't track on the I-2. I'm thinking the newer skates are only 0.2-0.4mm thicker than the original skates so that should give you an idea of how much the I-2 lowers lift-off distance. I'd be willing to bet the jitter is caused from that.

My Sensei and Xai both work perfectly fine with the I-2 (no jitter either) and the malfunction speed still seems to be superb on both mice.
