I plan on at least trying to get store credit at the minimum so I get the new DeathAdder Elite for ~$20.
2 1/2 Months~ from purchase date. I made a fairly large stink in the store which lent them to approving the refund.

With the surface calibration mine got even lower as well, but I use it without calibration because its plenty low already.
Surface tuning on the g303 was broken for the amount of time I used it (release->6 months after release) and would cause the mouse to spin out sometimes when moving quickly. I have used a GSR (blue) for 1 year and a QCK heavy on and off for a day or two every month or so and had high LOD on everything.

Guess it's worth a shot, I only want store credit to get the DA Elite.

Unless your idea of high lod is drasticly different than everyone else in the world then something is wrong. From my own testing and dozens of reviews default lod is below 1 cd which basically no one would call high.

Now the STANDARD LOD on current gen (every high end mouse out in the last 2 years till now) mice is 1.2mm~ 1 CD(WHICH THE G303 STILL TRACKS WHEN PLACED ON) and there are mice that go below it, like the DA chroma that will not track as soon as contact is broken between the mouse feet and the pad (prob ~.6mm LOD at the lowest setting?). I guess that means 1.2 is the new high. Also everyone lifts their mice in a different way, I for one lift the left side of a mouse with my thumb a bit and drag with the right side of the mouse still making contact with my pad. So you can see why your STANDARD LOD 3366 would sometimes track my movement where a DA never has. Quit being a good for nothing wanna be know it all (would have used more vulgar terms if not for the word censor).

Well I can 100% assure you my g303 doesn't track with default setting on top of a CD. It doesn't even seem close to tracking. I've tried this on multiple pads as well.

Hahah not just that, but when you are playing a game with someone else, 2 deaths each or whatever, and they have sweaty hands and you don't, that rubber bit on the side feels gross. But then again, the whole mouse feels gross when someone else has been sweating on it.

The lights are saved too (on my 2013). Set them to off and they stay off w/o driver.

Aside from DeathAdders in general being good mice (subjective of course), after watching their marketing video for the Elite, I'd be very skeptical and will try to lean away from the hype. This is the same company that tried to market the crap out of their keyboards by saying that giving up on Cherry MX switches (Cherry was founded in 1953) for the cheaper Razer switches made by Kaihua Electronics (founded in 1990) is better and pros love 'em (maybe it's because Razer sponsors these pros? Who knows).

I'll pick any generic keyboard sporting Cherry MX switches before I adopt any of the Razer Green switches. For me, the DA:Chroma is already a good mouse. Unless I absolutely must have a DPI switch and better 'switches', I might buy the Elite. It's all a matter of "Do you have to buy it OR do you just want to buy it?" thumb.gif
