Someone convince me to press the buy button for the DA Respawn.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Im hovering over the buy button. The thing that is stopping me is the problems i have with the first one i had. Im sure people read my woes. Alot on here say they dont have issues though. Issues i had were when i lifted the mouse the cursor flew off in different directions causing bad jitter. Placing the mouse also cause the cursor to become erractic. This was with the lates FW which was back in september time. I had a few mice since and none live up to the original DA i had which broke. The surface i had issues with was the goliathus speed. What makes it worse is that people on the net are still having the issues i had with mine even with the latest FW update which says to me its not isolated case. Surely razer cant make that many bad batches.

Well i went ahead and risked it. It doesnt seem the issues my previous one had which is very good. It does however have a high lod. Im sure my old one did also have the same lod but because ive used the roccat kone v2 and plus any mouses lift off is going to feel high.

I heard new mouse feet for the DA lowers lod? also this tape trick? any of these true?

Yeah, that's the only problem the DA has. The Tape trick should work, at least it did in my case.

So does the new mouse feet work? also will a different mat lower it? the lift off distance seems lower on my table. Also were do you place the tape?

The lift off is terrible on the DA. When you lift the mouse and go to turn its jittery and puts the aim out badly. My xai has high lod but doesnt jitter when i lift the mouse and reposition it. This new D doesnt have the staircasing issues i had. I dont remember my original DA to have lift off issues like this.

I used the post it trick instead.



You need to "tune" it to an acceptable lift off distance on your specific surface because different surfaces will produce different lift off distances. The strip is just blocking the light which lowers the lift off distance, thicker the strip the lower the LOD will be. Keep in mind though, this WILL lower your perfect control speed depending on how thick you cut it. Before I returned my 3.5G I had it at around 2mm LOD with an acceptable perfect control speed after a few tries. I tried getting it down to around 1mm but the perfect control speed dropped down too low and I felt negative acceleration.

The extra feet will only lower the lift off distance a little bit, most people mainly stack feet to prevent the deathadder from dragging on their pad. Razer fails like that.
