Does 3.5G still has the 1800dpi "issue" with lower perfect control on any other setting? While this would probably slightly help with the swipes, it would introduce another problem, which is having to mess with Windows sens and losing 1:1 tracking.
And second question, is there actually any noticeably "faster" sensor than the S3888? I've read in the thread that Zowie mice don't really have great perfect control which basically leaves the S3988 and S3095, and i'm not sure how much those improved the tracking, considering the MX518 A3080 was already losing to Deathadder in those very old esreality tests.
Mx518 was only "losing" because Sujoy only tested the 1600 dpi setting. The mx518 (as most mice even these days) has its highest perfect control speed at 400 and 800 dpi.
At your sens you need to either a) set your DA at 1800 dpi (yes, 3.5G still has the issue) or b) switch to the Abyssus if you want the same sensor with the best PCS of any mouse I've ever seen at 450 dpi.
The A3090 variants can go faster than the implementation in the DA, like on the G400 or the Roccat Savu and Kone Pure Optical (all on 800 or 400 dpi)
