Rumors of G100s not being a good mouse have been highly exaggerated - Page 3

Exactly. But I think Mancubus is just trolling.... I hope so at least.

Exceptional trolling by mancubus.

Anyways, I disagree. In my opinion the G100s isn't even in the same galaxy as the deathadder in terms of mouse accuracy. Nevermind the max-speed which I'll hit at least once if playing CS, but the cursor precision just feels so much worse on the g100s for me. - Keep in mind that that is coming from someone who dreads the size and weight of the deathadder, and loves the size and weight of the g100s. I still can't force my self to use the g100s due to the incredible downgrade in aiming capability.


Further, personally, I'd actually even place the razer krait's sensor above it dispite it's relatively minor "delay." I found that after i uninstalled synapse it was much improved. If the abyssus didn't jitter so much when i lifted it off the mouse pad i'd probably use that over the g100s too.

So is the G100s a good mouse to get at MSRP? Or should I just wait for a sale? I was looking forward to this mouse.

How convenient, as i was now intending to get the g100s. I really liked the Savus precision. Can you describe that inaccuracy please?

Dispite my problems with the shape, size and weight of the deathadder, when i move the cursor to a spot where i expect it to be, it just is there. Simple as that. With the g100s it's not in that spot. That would be the really dumbed down non scientific explanation of it. My hand feels like the mouse cursor isn't responding like it's supposed to.

The mouse doesn't have amazing sensor technology or anything. It's not comparable to a 1st gen 3g sensor or anything like that. It's just a mouse that has no gigantic flaws like most other small mice released recently such as the Krait 2013, Kova+, and others I listed in my original post.

If 1000dpi @ 500hz is a usable setting for you, then it's worth considering.

I just took mine apart and removed the weight but immediately noticed the mouse was too light to even use, so I put it back in. It was so light, the bottom of the mouse never laid flat on the table as you moved it. It was basically hydroplaning the entire time.

I'm about to test if I can force 1000hz on this thing instead of 500 and see if it's stable. Is this still the best method?

I get what you're getting at. Currently the only mice responding this snappy for me:

- G400, Deathadder, SAVU, Sensei/Xai (albeit with accel, but if I want to quickly move a few pixels to the right to correct my aim for a damn headshots at the least the damn mouse is doing it)

That sense of "not quite awesome" with the G100s is probably due to it's 2.4 megapixel rating vs 5.8 for avago 3090, and 12 megapixel for Avago 9500 laser. It's basically riced out, $5 dell mouse technology. Still feels better than a Pixart sensor though.

There's no listed mp/s rating for G100S.

Such rating indicates both a combined pixel array + maximum frame rate (variable). There are mice sensors with low frame, high pixel coverage and others with high frame, small array.

Overall feel has more to do with tracking algoritm and base architecture, granted framerate will also influence overall perception in terms of smoothness, latency etc.. Overall pixel array size will help with photo accuracy and consistency of imaging. (Err, well.. more of a combined factor)

Funny enough, there are many Dell office mice capable of a higher combined rating than the original G100, granted horrendous for gaming.

Krait 2013 - Junk. Has smoothing enabled in firmware which adds slight input delay and dulls the cursor feeling, completely useless.

Would be introduced to Tracking Algoritm/SROM. Firmware in mice isn't quite the same.


9500 and 9800 run at similar specs, but you would likely find early 9800 mice much worse than your experience with the krait biggrin.gif

Currently, updated mice are quite usable imo.
