With 1:1 movement, meaning no acceleration, the mouse cursor should have traveled the exact same amount of pixels in both cases. This means that the tracking quality is not dependent on how fast you move the mouse.
Negative accel (or skipping) has occurred when the cursor was traveling for less distance on screen when you were moving fast than when you were moving slowly. With positive acceleration it's the other way around: The cursor was traveling for less distance on screen when you were moving slowly than when you were moving fast.
Well and the easiest way to ensure that both times you are moving the mouse for the exact same distance is (for example) like this:
1. Put a heavy and straight object (i.e. book) on one side of your pad (let's say on the left side).
2. Align your mouse in a way that it touches the book on the left side and memorize/mark the spot the mouse cursor/crosshair is located right now.
3. Now move your mouse at high speed to the right without leaving the mousepad.
4. Move the mouse back slowly the same path you did before until it touches the book on the same spot again.
5. Finally check where the mouse cursor is located now in comparison to the location you memorized before:
Results:
A. The cursor is at the same location as before: no acceleration.
B. The cursor did not reach the initial location: positive acceleration.
C. The cursor moved further than the initial location: negative acceleration/skipping.
Hope that clarifies it a little smile.gif.

Even I understood it with only 6 Years english in School. XD

Seems to be the most exact methode without special tools and makes sense.

Beautifully explained. In response to my initial report 3.0m/s - Change that to 5.0+ m/s. I guess I was being too soft with it, but here are my last 3 test results -

1800 DPI -1000HZ

988Hz - 397 points - 5.33m/s (377403)
972Hz - 392 points - 6.10m/s (432194)
978Hz - 525 points - 5.42m/s (384838)

So I'm gonna assume those results are more up to par with what they should be, and this is on a black cloth pad. Sorry about the initial report, I'll fix it.

Best,

That's more like it!

@MONVMENTVM :

My problem relies in that I'm rather a heavyweight and I have problems finding any object that might hold my movement without being displaced tongue.gif

That and the speeds I get with my arm when testing usually mean I go out of the mousepad (hardpads are small, you see) plenty of times.

I guess that if it was important for me to test it this way I would be able to repeat it constantly, but since I already feel accel in other ways, I really don't have a need for such tests tongue.gif

Razer Avago/Agilent firmware has been relatively good. Glad to see it reaches and exceeds its 200 IPS rating.

Saw it already in the Razerstore. You can already order it in the european Razerstores too. But I got a running preorder over amazon.de. I am already thinking about to order one directly over Razer too. ^^

I also did a video review so I could show off how sexy it is:

This is a great mouse and those of you anticipating it shouldn't be disappointed.
