I like both the g500 and the DA though it is really a personal preference, I don't exactly know how much better the DA's tracking is but you could try playing around with the SetPoint utility that comes with the g500 and attempt to change the problems you are experiencing.

I had a G500 on a razer goliathus speed and i hated the mouse. It was stutter stop tracking and would play up alot. Im not sure if the surface was crap for the mouse. My hands always sweat with the G500 also.

Ah your using a soft mouse pad. This is why the DA seems so superior. The sensor in the G500, the A9500, tracks terribly on soft mouse pads. Use a solid surface or solid mouse pad, and it will track as well, if not a good bit better than a death adder.

The best mouse pad for that sensor is the Steel Series 4HD/9HD (only difference is size), which are specifically made for the sensor.

is there a mousepad that you can recommend besides this and also a little bit cheaper? i already ordered razer goliathius control, this mousepad was supposed to be for my deathadder but since i returned my DA, im gonna use this mousepad instead.. they wont let cancel my order..

Do you have the mouse scroll wheel lock turned on? Mine will scroll up or down accidentally when pressed if the lock is off, but with the lock on I have no issues.

I tend to leave it locked while gaming, and turn the lock off while working/browsing.

Uhh... I can't think of one for less than $20, like the 4HD. Maybe you should use your desk, or a hard, smooth surface you have around the house.
