I don't own an original deathadder 3g sensor anymore, but I'm pretty sure the cursor quality was better than G400. I hear the G400 uses a custom lens for lower LOD and there's of course many other variables. It just feels like the G400 has more "ripple" to it than the original 3g.

The tradeoff to me feels like: better native DPI steps on the G400 with more ripple VS better cursor stability and worse native steps on 3g.

edit: I use G400 at 800DPI / 1000hz. When I go to the lowest DPI step, I notice no jumpiness or ripple at all.

I still own two DA 3G (ref 3) and a G400 and the DA has more ripple than the G400 (Which has none for me). The cursor feels more responsive to me though. The Savu is indeed better in that regard, but what I heard is that it's picky with surfaces. It is perfect on my NP+ for me, but it might be bad on others.

I don't remember my 3g ever making horizontal lines like that. Are you sure the lens doesn't have pizza or something stuck in it.

I went from a Diamondback 1600DPI to a Deathadder 3G and could instantly tell the 3G sensor was amazingly better. I think I owned three different Death Adder 3g at one time and each one felt completely different also. One has high LOD, another didn't, and I forgot what was different about the 3rd. The tracking quality seemed a little different for each one too.

I seem to recall the one I bought right when it came out being the best, but I'm not positive.

G500 shape is actually pretty different from the MX500 shell, a lot better if you ask me, it's just that pretty much everything else about that mouse is undesirable.

I found the Savu to have excellent tracking on my more normal pad (The Hayate) but be uncomfortable to hold though I have somewhat unusual hands.

Yes, sensor is clean. Just realised I posted the result of my "bad" 3G, the "good" one is better, but still depending on the pad. Examples of the "good" one:

I dug out my old 3G and it seems to perform decently on QCK (1800dpi)

I had a MX518 for like 5 years until the scroll wheel broke, then i got this G500, i had it for 11 months it stoped left clicking. After waiting 2 weeks for logitech to reply to my email i almost bought a new mouse, but logitech replied with a tracking number and 2 day later i had a brand new in retail box G500 at my door.

What i can do on my G500 with the 2200 DPI i normally use, and 1000 polling rate.

It's mostly just the surface that makes a diffrence. You also might have been running the G400 on 1000Hz vs the default 500Hz on the DA
