It will pay in the long run to spend a full day reading nonstop articles about mice. http://www.esreality.com Has amazing articles on mice for you to review.

That's wrong, there are more mice that work great, not just the 3 you named. From the top of my head: Roccat Savu, Zowie EC eVo, Zowie AM/FK, probably more.

Also if you consider slight jitter a flaw then the DA3.5G is flawed as well.

I am pretty sure I am not wrong. But by all means, use whatever you want.

Well, look around this forum for the Savu. It has better cursor precision than the mice you mentioned and comparable tracking rates to the mice you mentioned, the only debatable thing would be the shape.

FYI I own both the G400 and all DAs except the newest one, the Savu performs better.

Oh yeah? Where are the benchmarks backing that up?

What do you want to see? I have Enotus and jitter tests here: http://imgur.com/a/zmvha
Also there are several reviews on this forum about all other aspects.

OK. Now show the testing for the mx518.
post #17 of 26
to backup somebody who has to fight with mis- / under- / wrong informed users:

mice to recommend which all perform great:

DA3.5G (no pred.)
DA2013 (no pred.)

Logitech G400 (with and without prediction)

ZOWIE AM (no pred.)
ZOWIE FK (no pred.)
ZOWIE EC1/EC2 eVo (no pred.)

Roccat Savu (no pred.)


______

MX518 is mostly not recommended because of its strong anglesnapping. if you like prediction, its surely a good mouse.

It only corrects for very very small changes that human motor skills are not even capable of noticing or achieving.

I had the RAT 7 for a short period of time but wound up not liking the weight of it and I could never get it comfortable. I returned it for a SteelSeries Sensei. However, if you dont mind the weight and it is comfortable in your hands then who are to tell you it's wrong?

You disqualify yourself with arguments like that. The prediction on the mx518 is very noticeable.
Also I never said your recommendations were wrong, it's just wrong that those are still the only good mice. ESR is not always up to date with this matter.
