I literally feel nothing game-breaking with the Avior at 144 Hz on a VG248QE. Smooth as butter, very snappy. I can flickshot easily.

Im using a Qnix X-star (one of those korean overclockable IPS monitors) at 125hz, 2560x1440. The 3090 mice I've tried with smoothing are Roccat Kone Optical, Savu, CM Recon. I have an EC1 which didn't have as noticeable smoothing like the others but I had other issues with it so picked up an Avior.

I should note though that I'm incredibly sensitive to this kind of lag. I was throwing up playing CS 1.5/1.6 from input lag before people even defined what input lag was when larger LCDs were becoming more common place. Monitors with over 15ms of input lag will usually cause me to get nauseated.

Gee Whiz, this thread blew up overnight, lol.

I caved and bought one at a local Be$t Buy. Using mine on a Mionix Sargas 320 - I have a puretrak Talent as well but mainly due to desk space, I simply don't use it anymore.

Mouse has me with different moods so I'll withhold my own judgement for now, especially since I'm using it 'Stock'.

I would say it feels very similar, the only part that I had to get used to was trying not to hit the dpi buttons and also its a little narrower than the DA, so placement of your ring and pinky might take some getting used to. Mouse clicks are also similar to DA 2013. Side buttons feels much better on the G502.
So far I am loving it. HUGE plus for me is scripting.

Grabbed one of these myself to see what the hype was all about - so far I love this mouse. The thumb rest is a huge plus, the side buttons aren't so far out of the way as unreachable and the sensor is sweet - no acceleration or deceleration that I can see while using it. More comfortable than the steelseries rival, that mouse is a bit too wide, I could never really get used to it. Scroll wheel is solid, with a nice tactile click to it. The only flaw I can see is that it has a bit of a rattle when picking up off the mouse pad, but that could be an isolated incident. Not sure where its coming from within the build.

Using it on a artisan hayate, and the software calibrated it to the pad no problem. This is a top notch mouse. I'm very picky when it comes to mice and I was really not expecting logitech to come up with something this good but they did. Kudos to them, highly recommended.

+1. Awesome mouse indeed.
I'll just use my two DA blacks for my laptop now.

The rattle is probably the scroll wheel, since there is a tiny bit of play. It could also be the right button lever/left (you can test it, one of them may have a tiny bit of play), as the button levers are entirely separate from the shell housing, unlike intellimouse explorer 3.0 shape clones like Deathadders, zowie's, etc, where the buttons are part of the shell itself.

I didn't even think about it being the scroll wheel and indeed its the cause. I held it down with a finger and lifted it a few times and no rattle, no finger holding and I get rattle. No big deal, this mouse more than makes up for the minor flaw in every other area, Still 10/10 for me. Great product, its hard to imagine topping this mouse.

The raddle is probably because they use those tilt buttons for the scroll wheel gives too much play in it laterally. Although if it's like any endless scroll wheel by logitech if you switch it to click mode it won't rattle. Which is what you should switch it to when playing games else moving the mouse quickly can scroll the wheel.

How long is the cable? 1.5 or 2m?
