It was a very rough approximation, it's probably less. The RAT 7 has the Twin Eye sensor too, I'm trying to avoid that. (Or is it only Razer mice that have that stupid dynamic DPI scaling?)

I see lots of people complaining of the twin eye sensor; I have no problems with it.

I see. Thanks.

I've got the Razer Deathadder Black Edition right now. I like it. I find it harder to hold than my Magic Mouse but it seems to track very well and it's more comfortable. I don't like change so this is pretty good for initial use for me thumb.gif

Somewhere above was asked if optical or laser has the lower lift off distance. I'd say by default at the moment it is laser because they use more advanced technologies, whereas optical sensors are more considered low - midrange by the manufacturers and therefore don't use the latest architecture and technologies. That being said the mice with the Avago 9500 sensor (Xai, G9x...) and the one's with the Twin-Eye sensor have very low LoD.

As far as that Dynamic DPI Scaling goes, I haven't tested every Twin-Eye mouse on the market but I guess it's just Razer who implemented it into their firmwares. So generally speaking about the Twin-Eye sensors if use these mice on hard surfaces without a subwoofer they are probably the best in terms of precision, consistency and perfect control speeds.

Sorry for the double post but I just stumbled upon this here and thought it might be interesting. It's the first firmware which has Dynamic DPI Scaling for the Razer Mamba.

Edit: And here is the last firmware version without Dynamic DPI Scaling if anybody has an original Mamba and wants to give it a run.

This be very true. My cursor walks all over the screen when listening to stuff loud. Can't click on anything.

Mmm, I see. Thanks a lot for that. I notice my Magic Mouse has a lot lower LoD than my Deathadder.

Thanks for that, I was willing to give my Mamba a spin one of those days, to compare to the AM I'm currently using smile.gif

@OP :
Nowadays the most adviced mice for gaming are (not necessarily in that order) :
Razer DeathAdder 3G/3.5G/BE
Logitech G400
Zowie AM

As they're thought of having issue-free sensors/firmware, so pick your shape and weight wink.gif

About the mousepad, if you want something that lasts you quite long, go for a cloth pad. Only metal ones last longer without degrading performance.
I've only tested the Goliathus Alpha Speed, but I can say each mouse I've tried there worked very nice.
You would need someone else's oppinion on cloth pads, I think wink.gif
