Sensor drift is a very well known and defined trait. Ask anyone with a scientific or engineering background, hell Google it if you like, but you are definitely in the wrong on this I'm afraid Falkentyne.

The sensors in question are in use for years - if this would be a serious issue affecting users actually on a regular basis it would have been a major topic since years on forums like this one.

Actually this happens pretty often(two or three per week) with the newer Zowie lineup. I've had FK1, ZA11, and ZA12. All of them would occasionally malfunction(spin out to ground/sky) when coming back in contact with the pad. Might have been the angle it was coming down at, but it happened on multiple pads. Rival 100 had a less serious, but similar issue. Honestly I think it comes down to the way you use the mouse, since I was playing at a ridiculously low sens back then(90cm/360).

Worth noting for the Zowie mice that part of the problem could have easily been due to lift off settings or dust. All of Zowie's current lineup have very very thin feet which leads to the mouse shell practically scraping the pad. Also; they have fairly open sensors. Combine these two traits and you have a chronic dust issue. While this did happen on more than one pad; I was mostly using the XTracpad ripper the time; which may have made either problem worse.

Semi-related bit. G402 also has a similar issue where it stops tracking entirely after making contact with the pad. Basically the exact same issue as described above, but instead of spinning out you just kinda don't move. This was less common than the Zowie issue; but that may be due to having raised my sensitivity. Most of these malfunctions were on the Mionix Alioth or the QCK+, since they were what I was using at the time. Not sure if this issue exists with the Ripper, since I no longer own that pad. Edit: I just thought about it and I think this is a result of the same 'angle' issue, but tweaks out in a weird way due to the 'fusion engine' in the g402.

I noticed that too

I hope they make an update that adds a 2000 dpi step; that's what I used to used in FPSs before I switched to 3310, I'd impulse buy it if I knew I would get a 2000 dpi step

Oh no, we couldn't possibly have that with all of these 'driverless' enthusiasts around preaching that less customisability is better

Maybe OLED displays would actually be useful if they were on 'driverless' mice solely to customise settings, like the Sentinel III. That would make it less gimmicky but probably a bit heavier, too.
