1.) Lift off distance is around 2.5mm, which is perfect in my experience. However, this is augmented by the pad you have. Some hard pads increase the lift off distance dramatically.

2.) You cannot alter the LOD in software. The only manufacturer that offers that functionality in the 3310 is Mionix.

3.) The 3310 is a fantastic optical sensor, but so is the s3988. If you look at max performance, the 3310 is the best optical sensor on the market. Some say they notice "smoothing" on the s3988, but I think it felt fine. Either way, you'll have an enjoyable experience. Just make sure the mouse fits your hand/grip properly.
