Also, question about the sensors smoothing, why is there so much hate for it? If it's overly smoothed then why not just raise your dpi? I will admit that i found the smoothing at bit odd at first coming from a deathadder3.5g too the 2013, g502, and avior, but i raised my dpi from 1400 to 1800 on the 2013 and i barely noticed it while remaining more accurate then the 3.5g(maybe it's the weight tho), i then noticed it slightly with 3310 mice and became more accurate then the 3.5g, but then i lowered the dpi on the 3.5g and the accuracy difference wasn't noticeable anymore. I just seems like such a manageable difference in sensors that it's hard too see why there is so much hate, and this is coming from someone that aims with rapid flick shots that smoothing should effect the most. I will say that i did actually aim the best with the 3310 sensor tho, even better then the g502 that i didnt really detect any smoothing on, the slight smoothing really helps with the slowly aimed things like close skillshots in league of legends. That being said, i haven't tried the g502 sensor in a 100gram case like the avior yet, fingers crossed XD.
The cursor processing is added by SROM. The software that operates the sensor controller, from what I understand.
As far as the hate for the 2013... I think it's mainly because there are other options on the market (including the 3.5G DA) that perform better without the overly processed feeling of the sensor. Also, for most people, they aren't willing to change their DPI to accommodate a mouse.
I'm completely not sensitive to smoothing, but I did notice the processed feeling of the cursor on the DA 2013 at 900DPI. I use between 800 and 1150 DPI on every mouse I own, so I'm not nearly as ridged as most of the hardcore 400/450DPI people on here. Asking them to raise or lower their DPI, so they can use a DA 2013 isn't going to end well for Razer.Edited by DivineDark - 6/2/14 at 9:32am
