Thanks

Newer batches of G400 have no angle snapping.

Tracking quality wise, if you're open to make a compromise and use the best setting of the mouse, you can't go wrong with the g400 or AM sensor-wise. You need to like the shape and weight too, though.

Ikari optical is better tracking-quality and max pc wise than both mice.

Really?

Do you have any review where it states that?

I mean, most comments about the Ikari Optical were in the line of "it's so amazing" but no data to back them up from what I've found, and I'm interested in that mouse smile.gif

Very high max speed under A3060 rom @ 400 CPI. (>4ms) Not sure bout 800.

Cursor quality is what you'd expect from an Avago 20 pin.

So it should be more a less the same as an "old" Mx518?

Lift off is a bit higher due to the official Avago lens. Likely slightly better cursor quality at higher CPI in return.

So all in all it should perform more a less the same as the newer 3090 with custom lens (thinking AM here) plus the 3060 having a bit of higher perfect tracking speed?

Thinking it again, then it should be Ikari Optical = Zowie ECx ~ Mx518 ~ A3090 when it comes to tracking quality? (where ~ would mean approx)

I can't see where sensor from Ikari Optical could be better over G400. Maybe max speed, but it's difference like 4 m/s vs 4.5 m/s, over the top already. ADNS-3060 with stock lens will have about 4-5mm LOD, so 2x higher than G400. Max hardware CPI is 800. I have not seen how Ikari is performing at 1600 CPI, probably similar to G400 at 3600CPI. Ikari has noticeable angle-snapping too. ... and Ikari is more expensive wink.gif .

You never mention what type of mouse grip you use. For me, this would make a huge difference in which mouse to choose. I have an SS Ikari laser and find it great for palm grip but horrible for claw. If you're a palm-gripper, Ikari or G400 would probably be your best bet. If you're doing claw, I wouldn't hesitate to get the Zowie AM. I prefer the AM over my SS Sensei.

A3060 has 400 and 800 native resolutions. Should perform better at those DPI steps. That being said, 400 DPI on the G400v2 seemed flawless to me.
