Zowie AM best design/sensor mouse right now? - Page 4

post #31 of 46
Deathadder has a native and nicely configured 1800 CPI step.

It's going to perform much better than the G400 @ 1800 CPI as far as cursor quality and max IPS goes.

I can confirm Abyssus jitter problem has been fixed on the newer mice. Mine has zero issues on QCK+ mousepad. Mine tracks just as well as my deathadder 3.5g. Sensor wise this is the best I've used as of yet, although I miss the MS WMO shape.

Yep I bought one in early March from Amazon.co.uk and it too is flawless on my QCK Fnatic. Very surprised about how much I love the mouse. So incredibly light biggrin.gif

I have heard this before, but every time I buy an Abyssus (and I have bought 3) it always jitters on certain angles on cloth pads. It's usable on some pads because the angles are not typically used in ordinary mouse movement.

I've kinda just concluded that I should stick with my Spawn.

That's rough, I made sure to wait till my local store ran out of stock for it completely and once they received new stock I bought it. I know only past a certain batch they were fixed but I dunno which batch# sorry. I will get back to you once I find out more.

Switches are preference, however the AM will probably take adjusting to. Too hard for me though, I can't pistol with it, so I prefer the G400s omrons.
Middle mouse button and scroll wheel on the G400 isn't very good. You have to depress the scroll wheel pretty deep in order to actuate the switch.
I didn't like the AM's shape very much (but I did like the IO 1.1 shape confused.gif - guess it was just too small and thin) however the pinky ledge on the G400 is annoying. Great shape though.
Weight isn't too bad though would prefer lighter.
LOD can be fixed with tape.
These are just opinions really and I think it just comes down to the shape and switches when deciding on either mouse.

LOD fixed with the tape reduces the tracking speed. (the image reduces by some pixels)
post #38 of 46
What kind of tape do I put on the bottom of the mouse to increase the LOD on the AM?
post #39 of 46
To increase LOD you could try using the mouse with plain black mouse pad.

I tried two different plain black pads, I had the same issues.
