post #11 of 16
BTW the cheapest I could find the Rival for was on eBay, new, from Newegg's account. 59.99

Thread Starter 
Thanks for all the suggestions and help! I went to Micro Center and they had a Rival on display, none available, but I liked it. So I ordered one. Unfortunately Amazon and Newegg were out of stock, but I ordered directly from SteelSeries and got it for $59.99.

While at the store they had the Mionix Sargas 900 keyboard/mouse mat there and I picked that up. I've always wanted a full desk mat. It looks great and tracks really well with my MX revolution at work. Going to test it out at home tonight!

Every time I do that with a 9500 or 9800 mouse, I end up to the right of the spot that I started at to varying degrees. I will admit from owning the Sensei for a while now that the acceleration is tolerable if and only if you are using a hard surface. It's really, really annoying on cloth. I am a low senser (60cm/360) so I notice the accel more on the faster flickshots, and that's when I need 1:1 the most...so it bothers me more than it might bother some people.

I'm not meaning to argue or keep this thread alive past its time, but I just wanted to say that I've been messing around with my Kone XTD for about 45 minutes over lunch, and did many tests like you described, and I was nearly back in the same spot every time, allowing a small margin of error due to the angle I hold my hand at and how it changes as I move my arm farther away from my body. I'm satisfied there isn't any noticeable acceleration. For the record, I'm using a Ripper XXL mouse mat.

That's interesting. I have never actually used a 9800 mouse but I'm pretty sure the most knowledgeable members of the forum including Skylit say that it uses the same sensor architecture as the 9500 and even Mionix said in a recent video that the firmware in the 8200 CPI laser they use (the 9800 obviously) always accelerates unpredictably and no one can perfectly correct for that.

The swipes I'm talking about where you should definitely have an issue at are those upwards of 3 m/s.

Yeah, I'm moving my mouse across over half of the Ripper XXL (about 22 inches for me) in a little less than a second and can't get it to be outside that margin of error. I also usually just pivot at my forearm for the most part when I play, so I'm barely moving probably 10 inches or so, so I don't know if I'd ever really have a problem with it.

I can't stop looking at your avatar. Absolutely hilarious.

Interesting results though, I've never seen anything 9500/9800 do anywhere near that well.
