Max tracking speed issue and mouse pad

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I bought a Logitech M560 mouse, I know it's not a gaming mouse but it's the only mouse that fits me like a glove, perfect size/shape. The only issue I have is that, when I swipe my mouse fast in an FPS or in Windows, the mouse stops in it's tracks mid-swipe, it just halts in the middle of the screen and I have to pick it up and re-swipe. This makes playing FPS basically impossible. I tried Steelseries and Logitech cloth mouse pads both solid black, I also tried a patterned Madcatz mouse pad and the Razer Scarab all of which do the same thing.

I never had problems with non-gaming mice before, I used an optical Microsoft Ergo mouse for a long time and never encountered this issue.

Is there any chance that a mouse pad or some driver/windows setting can fix this? When I use my Roccat Lua or G300 they both work perfectly fine on any surface.

That is the limitation of non-gaming grade sensors. You are probably hitting the maximum perfect control speed as it is pretty low on that mouse apparently. One major reason I buy gaming mice is so I can reach very high speeds with zero loss of tracking. No driver is likely to improve this.

Sorry to say it Sir, but Metal is correct. Some consumer grade mice have a very low malfunction speed. Nothing can be done to correct this. You're either going to have to deal with it, or move on to another mouse that is more built for what you're wanting to play.

For the mouse you're using, I'd recommend the Mionix Avior 7000 if you don't mind going wired, or look at the G700 or G602 from Logitech. They'll all be able to get you where you're wanting to go.

This was also the reason why i got a gaming mouse in past.
My old office mouse couldn't keep track with my lowsens ^_^

Also office mouse users do mostly play with the standard acceleration aswell.
So all in all you can go alot lower with the ingame sens.
