The only Reason buying this new Deathadder compared to a G400 lay maybe in its Shape, even if think the G400 Shape is superb better for a excellent and solid Palmgrip.
I mean who needs those 50G Speeds for real? Who is so insane straight outta bughouse to need those Improvements if really everything can be even done with a old Intelli 3.0 Explorer and even as a extreme Low Senser where those Speeds become relevant. RPK of Verygames plays with a over 100 cm low sense out of this earth and still uses a Intelli 3.0 as a real international CS Progamer.
I wouldn't say the new Deathadder isn't worth its money, but you always have to consider what's really important for you. Plus this Synapsestuff under those Conditions is a clear nerving NOGO.
You know I got five G400's stacked in my Room. One is in use and four are original sealed for the Future. Some Guys would say for fun drop the dose mousefan, but if you look at the market as a competitve oriented Gamer, you see things getting more and more in the wrong Directions when we talk about mice. Directions which are totally unimportant even for a competitive Gamer. I mean the Improvements compared to the old Standards.
You know I like those Mice and the whole Equipment stuff so much as Guys Guys hanging around here, that's why I bought so much uselesss ****, but we have to face the truth and discern real relevant Improvements from moneyoriented strategies. ^^
It have nothing to do with price.
Shape is everything if the sensors are equal.
I also have G400, MX518 etc. But I HATE the shape, there is no way for me to use it for longer periods.
So yes as you said, the shape/feel is the reason to buy one over g400.
If I liked the G400 shape I would be very happy tbh, then I could stop buy ****ty mice all the time.
And yes old mice like explorer 3.0 is perfect if you can stand the low dpi (not a factor if you only play fps and dont mind the snail cursor speed in windows) I can't, impossible for other games for me.
