According to BlurBusters, mice under 1000hz are invalid while using a 120-144hz gaming monitor and/or strobing:

No. Only the A3090 Zowies had higher PCS at 500 Hz. FK1 is great at 1000 Hz. Internal oscillator ftw.
Fast enough

Well, put the FK1 guts into my FK13 again and also again, scroll wheel works without issue even though I was getting skips somewhat regularly in the FK1 shell just before. Rather curious.

Just got my FK1. put in custom omron switches. so happy. I like its bigger size vs fk. wished there was abit more hump towards the back though. love the grainy top button coating. Is the extra set of feet supposed to be soo thin? I thought they were supposed to be thicker than the stock feet. Mine aren't (both 0.45mm). I don't see how its practical to have feet that are soo thin.

800dpi on this feels different to my alcor, not sure why. could this be attributed to being 793dpi or simply different feel of the sensor?

I get weird polling reports using MMR. it's only stable at 125 and 500. in fact all my mice don't seem to run 1000hz stable. g502, alcor, fk. might it be my PC ? furthermore my "mouse movement" & "pointer movement" readings are 1:1 only at the default window size. if i expand the window, 90% of readings are red or green. entrpr is always off.

I find the hard pad LOD setting useless on my steelseries S&S & QCK heavy . barely even moves without feet (i.e lowest LOD possible). what are your observations? But same settings will track on goliathus (4.53m/s with and without feet) & mantis speed, allsop pad. seems QCK is a bad mousepad to use with FK1 and hardpad LOD? can others pls test and verify?

I promise I will film that comparison with the Avior today (Tuesday) after work. Even set a reminder. Forcing myself this time. I know a lot of people want to hear my thoughts and I've been way too lazy.

TLDR: He faithfully used the Benchwarmer 7000 for quite some time until he finally was overcome by the black-hole like pull of the Zowie Nation. Soon after receiving and using the FreakinKickass1 he instantly recognized it as the superior artifact of technology and threw the SecondString 7000 back into the swamp where it originally arose. And they lived happily ever after smile.gif

My 1000Hz setting is very stable


I use a QCK+ and the hard pad setting is not suitable for me either. The cloth pad setting is probably as low as possible, doesn't even track at 1CD.

What does this mean?

Is it better to use 500hz or 1000hz with mz 120hz screen? Currently I am using 500.
