I have R.A.T 5 and have owned Razer mouses and experienced same issues as you. Causes
Dirt & dust
Having more than one mouse plugged in at same time
Having drivers and software for one or more mouses at same time
USB ( or chipset drivers need update )
Out of date drivers
Software conflict ( smart technology v razer )
Certain surfaces effect high DPI mouses more than others
Windows mouse & pointer settings ( enhance pointer precision )
There are other causes but these are ones that have effected me when using two mice. I had Razer Abyssus and R.A.T 5 at same time and my cursor was doing a moonwalk all the ding dong day !!
* My mouse pad and Mouse are as clean as they can be
*Only 1 mouse is plugged in
*I have not removed the RAT5 drivers (doing that now)
*USB and Chipset drivers are up to date
*I hope it's not a faulty laser :/
*As I said earlier drivers are up to date (unless Graphics drivers are detrimental as I'm one rev behind)
*Smart Technology software is installed but hasn't been running(will uninstall now)
*will look into getting a hard surface mousepad (any recommendations?)
*Windows settings are at 3/11 and Pointer Precision is disabled
I will try removing the drivers and software for my previous mouse and I'll respond here with the results.

You dont need more then 1600dpi since i doubt you have more pixel then it can track at 1600.
In the end you picked (afaik) the same crap sensor twice, gz to that:D
Im not sure if your issue comes from the sensor itself though.
They both have the same model sensor? so the chances of my razer going out the same way as my RAT5 is likely...that's nice. As for the 1600DPI setting, I prefer my DPI to hover at least around 3500 as I don't like having to move my mouse all over the pad to get my cursor to the other side of the screen. I never new that it took so much tweaking to get a mouse work properly these days.
I still have 25 days to return my mouse to the store for a full refund if I have to and I have a two year warranty on this mouse. If I have to return it is there a mouse anybody recommends for me to try? I am an odd fellow with my mouse because I don't have a specific grip style, I alternate occasionally between all three styles.
I'd like to clarify my settings:
*Acceleration: 10 (Driver setting)
*Polling Rate: 1000
*Windows sensitivity: 3/11
*Enhanced Pointer Precision: offEdited by Fateful_Ikkou - 6/12/12 at 7:02am
