Interpolated. Mouse is only capable of 1600 CPI max, though the 3200 CPI registry used for the 1600 step isn't the greatest nor accurate.

Logitech G9X. I'm a claw/fingertip hybrid grip and like it a lot. Great sensor even at high DPI.

okay so far i still have my eyes on the Kana and i starting to like the G9x, any other options ?

The G400/Deathadder are the only perfect sensors, IIRC. The Zowie AM comes close, if I am correct.

The others are all plagued with issues, almost all laser razer mice are plagued with issues pertaining to the phillip sensor, while every laser mouse generally has a lot of acceleration. The other optical sensors have either prediction or jitter.

It may not seem like a difference, but after swapping from my Steelseries Xai to my G400, I can never, ever go back, and my CS:S agrees with my decision. thumb.gif

That only pertains to the Avago 9500/9800 architecture. There are older CMOS based laser mice without acceleration.

I wouldn't call a sensor or mouse perfect, but those are examples of good mice.

Stay away from kana, horrible quality mouse with bad switches for mousebuttons, semi ok sensor but far from good/perfect.

I said mostly FPS pros use 400, but that is just a habit from earlier days with the microsoft gaming series. And I was referring to CS and Quake because those are the most competetive FPS games. smile.gif

EDIT:
I still stand by the CM Storm Spawn for a claw grip, very comfortable mouse and uses the 3090 sensor with the standard avago package. I think they have fixed the high lift off distance aswell in the newer firmware updates.

But i find it to be extremely small for my hands :c

There are other reasons as well, such as the way older input methods worked. 400~ CPI also remained one of the more accurate settings on CMOS frame based mice, though improvements have been made with modern sensors.

Lift off distance isn't issue but rather a side effect of how light is refracted off the official lens (Will differ by surface color and material). The current lift off distance is optimal for imaging accuracy even if its a bit high for some with darker cloth pads.

They might have cut cost on the LED itself though. 800 CPI is closer to 700 D:

As far as I am concerned, the Deathadder that I previously owned for 2 years was a beast.
Now I am using the Cyborg RAT 5, which extremely good, too. biggrin.gif

Lots of options out there, but I definatly recommend these two I refered. thumb.gif
It´s all about the personal taste! wink.gif
