Just a quick question, what is prediction? and how does it affect gameplay?

The mouse tries to predict where you are going to move it too and moves the cursor to where it thinks you are going, It's great if you are going to move the mouse there but if not it deteriorates accuracy. All mice (AFAIK) have this, prediction goes from unnoticeable all the way up to highly aggravating.

I've decided on a mouse, well I think I have. Does the G500 have a low prediction? If so I'll definately pick up this mouse.

As far as I know it has low prediction. It's also on the Avago ADNS-S9500 sensor which means it works best with a hard mousepad.

James95, don't pay much attention to the prediction debate, especially since you're new to PC gaming. I guarantee you that you'll NOT be able to tell the difference between the prediction of mice without knowing exactly what to look for.

These advanced topics (prediction, lift off distance, etc.) really only matter once you have developed a playing style you like and are trying to fine tune it.

I can understand that you've never used the Kinzu, but you really don't have to keep spewing nonsense. As for the prediction, it's hard coded into the SROM and there's no MCU to enable or disable it.

I gave it a chance, I honestly did, but between the positive acceleration, low malfunction rates, and highly noticeable prediction, I just couldn't use it. The sensor is just a POS marketed by steelseries and promoted by sponsored gamers.

Moderate prediction problems is a huge understatement. Mouse prediction on the MX518 often determines the difference between hitting a shot and whiffing.
It's no worse than the Salmosa's S3668. Avago gave near equal amounts of correction to all their LED based sensors.

Mouse prediction on the 518 is no where as bad as the Kinzu's. Anyone who has actually used these two mice can verify my statements.

It's a pretty glaring flaw that Logitech didn't even bother to fix in the recent MX518 revision.
Except, it isn't a flaw and logitech has no control of the SROM.

Prior to the Avago 9500/6090, S3668/S3888, and PTE, most sensors were coded with moderate amounts of correction, where the MLT04 had next to nothing. Avago could have spent time modifying the SROM, but they chose to bring out a completely new sensors with much higher performance instead.

Also WMO-IE1.1-IE3.0 @ 500hz outperform MX518 anyday.
No.

Oh by the way every mouse has prediction, just varying degrees of it, the mice that you'd say have none just have very very little prediction. 1 person doesn't make the mx518 garbage, In fact going by pros doesn't work. Look at the guys who use the kinzu which is garbage and is imo the worst sensor in the "gaming" mouse category.

As far as I know... prediction is something in your mouse that tries to force straight lines.
