Hi All,

I've been seeing dozen of posts from people looking for small and accurate mouse for fingertip grip.
Most of them not finding fit with any product available on the market.

Like me, in search of flawless mice you've tried mice with good sensors. Probably Deathadder, G400 or Abyssus was on that list
and you found them hard to grip, or like me you even got cramps.

Once upon time there was mice called MX300. It had great sensor, but most importantly perfect shape.
Now days there is G100 which meant to fill void. There is general opinion that it's sensor has a serious fault in shape of jitter.
I've been using G100 now for 2 months and can't find alleged jitter influence my gaming.
In fact I'm amazed what moves I can do in QuakeWorld and other games compared to G400.
I think that G100 deserves more applause then it's given to it.

Below is a paint test, decide yourself. I will reveal real answers later on.

I think Left side of the picture is drawn with G100 and right with G400, ONLY because of specs I read from google biggrin.gif

But sensor tests should be done with something else than human hand, because there is big possibility to errors/mismatch moving than tests made with automation.
It's alive!

I wish my laptop woud display the full image size.

G100 Left side.

PS: It's a decent low CPI sensor, but it's just too messy for higher CPI values and or polling combinations. Logitech's lens/LED setup isn't helping either.

G400 on the right, mine only does the type of jittering that's on the left at 3600 dpi.

if i looking at only 1800 dpi I would say left one is the g400, but by looking at 400dpi i would say right is the g400. obvious answer would be that neither side would be only one mouse:)

It' easy, G100 is on the left.

Here you can see comparision I did between WMO @ 400 DPI, G1 @ 1000 DPI and G100 @ 1000 DPI. And G100 looks ugly.

G100 isn't bad, but I wouldn't use more than 500 DPI with it. Also shape isn't identical to MX300/G1 and in the end i still prefer G1 even though it's not capable of 500 Hz polling rate.

What polling rate is your G1 at?

Wouldn't say that's a fair comparison as the G1 would be sending less data @ 125hz, but cursor quality should still remain good due to the higher image processing capabilities.

Soft capping the G100 @ 125hz would provide much nice cursor quality than the default 500hz value. (Still a weaker sensor)

250.

Probably, haven't tried it. Though with that you lose one of 2 only advantages G100 has over G1: higher polling rate (the other one being higher perfect control speed which isn't really important to most Quakers, except few weirdos like mew biggrin.gif).

G100 isn't really bad mouse but it's disappointing, it's not even close to being as good as everyone hoped for.

I could tell because my G400 does not jitter that badly at 1800 dpi.
