Could the fact that my mousepad has multiple colors, cause issues with a sensor?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have the DotA 2 QcK+ mouse pad and now the SteelSeries Sensei Fnatic. I also have the G700. The G700 never has issues, but it gives me wrist pains after long usage. I had the normal Sensei before, but I was having issues with it all the time, so I sent it back and got the G700. However, I then went back and got the Fnatic (thinking it was the same version, oh well). Now it seems to be fine, but I think it freaks out when I bring the sensor to the middle of the mousepad and it meets the black/red border. I can't reproduce it, so I'm not sure if that's why.

 

I was going to never get a SteelSeries mouse again, but after looking, the mouse market is horrible. Majority are junk plastic or designed horribly and Zowie mice are too minimal for me.

I have no experience with laser.

It is said by others that laser does not work well on cloth pads. That aside. Going from one color on the pad to another changes the tracking of a mouse. The light reacts differently. It is like if you went from one mouse pad to another every time you pass over a different color. You can experience delayed cursor movement (like a lag spike if you will) or a stutter/jump/jitter.

That is why I will not buy a mouse pad that is not uniform in color and has graphics. Even more so with a Zowie.
