Took your advice and plugged my DA back in with some tape over the sensor and I can't believe how much I missed it. Too bad Razer doesn't make a DA with LOD like the Zowie frown.gif. But I got a question: The sensitivity meter in the Razer Synapse, the bar moves well into certain sensitivities. Does this mean that there are in between settings on the DPI? Like could I be using 1050 or 1150 DPI? I have OCD btw.

Don't use razer synapse. Go back and use the old drivers. Synapse is a pointless layer of junkware.

And the Avago 3888 (or whatever number) has a natural DPI of around 1800 I think, all other DPI settings are simply interpolations. In general it's best to set the mouse at the lowest "natural" DPI setting and then just adjust sensitivity in-game. You don't want your mouse missing pixels through interpolation.

Bam smacked in the face with some knowledge. Thank you. So I installed the old drivers and I have 3 dpi settings now. 450, 900, 1800 - are those native dpis or should I just stick to 1800?

Someone else, maybe Skylit, can correct me if I'm wrong; but I think you are safe either leaving it at 1800 then using on-the-fly sens to adjust (1800 * the value to get your sens, eg: 2.5 is 1800 * 0.25 = 450 dpi), using the set value in drivers (450, 1800, etc), or just leaving it at 1800 and using in game sens.

Personally, I use 1800 and adjust via on the fly. Be sure to use the on-the-fly if you do as the image map in the Razer software is wrong for the values.

The halved settings are fine imho. Won't bother you unless you're picky bout sensor feel. They're all very accurate.

IF you're using 1800 DPI, you'll have a different perception of rotation in 3D games. It's going to feel faster than w/e 360 sens is equal to 900. Same story for 450.

DA doesn't utilize any possible positive interpolation, at least with the older driver. Halved interpolation is fine. No skip.

OP, the DA 3.5g have a lower lift off distance on pale, hard surfaces. Paired with hyperglides skates, I have less than 2cd on a SS 9hd and no more than 1,5mm on my wooden desk.
Actually, when I was using the hyperglides on top of the older razer skates (now removed them and using only non-stacked hyperglides), the mouse would not track proprely on my desk, often skipping, due to it reaching the LOD only because of the skates.


Skylit tell the truth when he says that different surfaces change the LOD.
