Corsair M45 - Page 5

post #41 of 66
Okay, just got this mouse in and first impressions is that it's awesome. It already feels good in my hand coming from years with the g9x with fingertip grip. I also get a perfect rating in Precision on that mouse test. (Forgot the name)

Question though: How do I change profiles without having to open up the software? Can't seem to figure that one out.

My best guess about the price is marketing. The advantage is a lot of customizability, and LOD could be lower as well. But really, the 3310 mitigates both of those issues...

No one on earth needs more than 1800 CPI.

I know plenty of people that game with 5000+ dpi.
How they manage to do so Is an enigma, but there are actually quite alot that use a stupid amount of dpi biggrin.gif

I play on either 3500 or 7000 on the Avior. Do I need 3500 for 70cm/360? No. Is it nice to have the granularity? Sure. Does it affect performance of the mouse? Only in a positive way.

So you said "no one on earth needs more then 1800dpi"
Yet you use 3500-7000dpi? Confused.

And If it does effect in in a positive way then you actually do need It.

But yeah, okey biggrin.gif

Also the people I talked about don't have insane low sens like you do.

And how people control 5000+ dpi in windows is an enigma for me, Maybe if you have 2x 4K screens but 1080p like most have, lol.

You don't need it at all. All you need is about 400 CPI for my sensitivity, but since the mouse performs the same but I can get more granular movements, why not use the higher CPI counts, especially if the game supports raw input? There's no reason not to. This is the beauty of the 3310 sensor, whether you are using 5000 or 50 CPI you'll get 5.4 m/s out of it.

My desktop CPI comfort zone is around 1600.

I game at 1200 dpi, you're saying that I should play at higher dpi and lower in-game sensitivity? I thought that was bad? Or is that just for laser?

Use whatever dpi setting you're comfortable with.

I think it's rather silly to force yourself to learn an alternative setting for the sake of smoother angular motion in fps'. Control within distance changes.

Laser is a much more focused and stronger source of light than LED is, thus it should get a better illuminated surface for the sensor to take pictures on.
As a consequence, laser sensors were marketed as the future of sensors because of improved surface compatibility.
When it comes to other aspects, like tracking quality or maximum speed, it depends on implementation.

It must be pointed out, though, that current optical-acquiring, laser-illuminated sensor systems are not the only laser systems out there, there's the PTE and the OvationONS sensors that are a far more interesting implementation of laser use.

Marketing wise, laser is traditionally a word enciting of technological advancements, thus it makes sense to keep on using it for marketing purposes, and it works better than "optical".

Still no way to change profiles other than assigning an application or going into the software?

So I finally got my M45 today, and I have to say it really does feel like the G9X shape I always loved. When I first opened the box it immediately felt so much more natural in my hand than my Avior or Naos. It's noticeably shorter in length and lighter (without weights) than either of them.

But once I plugged it in and started playing around with it I had quite a few problems so unfortunately I'm not sure I'll be keeping it.

First, the thumb buttons are almost completely flush with the contour of the mouse, making them pretty awkward for me to use, and I use my thumb buttons often for voice so that's an issue.

Second, the mouse feet are extremely thin and I can feel the plastic bottom of the mouse making contact with my pad. The glide feels terrible and the noise alone makes me uncomfortable moving it around. Keep in mind this is a brand new mouse, the problem would only be worse as the feet wore down.

Third, after using it for maybe 20 minutes, the tracking randomly went all crazy. It was like the LOD adjustment decided all on its own to go even lower than the lowest setting possible so the tracking would cut out. And this was without the driver installed. It fixed when I unplugged the mouse and plugged it back in, but a few minutes later it did it again. It hasn't done it a third time but it hasn't been long.

Edit to add a fourth problem, I feel like I'm getting some pixel walk issues when moving the mouse very, very slowly that isn't there on my other 3310 mice.
