post #31 of 50
Well guys, I wasn't going to pay $10 for hyperglides and decided I am going to keep the deathadder, so I bought mouse feet from puretrak. They should be alright on my Talent. Anyway, what do you guys think: should I replace the current feet or should I just stick the puretrak feet on top of the current ones?

Pros? Cons?

I dont have PureTrak's feets, but I have the HyperGlides in my DA and I can tell you is more slippery than the default, I found it better.

yuo need to stick it on the top of the default one.

ANOTHER Q.

Has the DA 3.5G been fixed so that I can use 450 or 900 DPI instead of 1800?

Which problem?

The Avago ADNS-S3668 malfunctions earlier at 450/900 in comparison to it's 1800 DPI setting, but whether you require more than 2.35m/s is generally up to how you play as most people will never reach.

I'm not sure if Avago fixed the above problem with the newer S3888 at it's 450/900 DPI settings, but the performance at 1800 DPI is the same.

Hi guys, sorry for the late response..

I didn't like the Black Edition DA at all, for one simple reason really. Since my sens is really very low in FPS games I need to lift the mouse quite often. The new sides on the BE DA were extremely slippy, and I found it difficult to grip it properly to lift it. So the sticky sides on the original DA actually help you to lift it believe it or not. Apart from that though, the mouse was really good.

I'm currently using the Respawn on a Qck+. It feels quite good, although as people have said in this forum, the QcK+ collects dust so so easily. I like to think I have a relatively clean room but this pad finds dust out of nowhere.

I'm also considering trying different DPIs, been stuck on 1800 for a bit now. Since I'm a low sens gamer would it be more beneficial for example to try 900 DPI and then increase the in game sens a little bit accordingly? So much information on these forums, gets confusing!

About the Deathadder black:
The new rubberized sides are actually well liked by a lot of people. But the sides work best if your hands are NOT completely dry! The glossy sides on the 3G or 3.5G DA's work best if your hands ARE completely dry, and the sides are freshly cleaned. That's the difference. Plus the glossy sides attract dirt and skin cells like no tomorrow.
The main problem people had with the glossy DAs, was that you sweat, and the sides start getting hard to grip during a long gaming session.

Give it a try.

About the DPI thing:
Use 1800 DPI whenever you can. Mouse performs best that way.
The only time you want to reduce the DPI is for games that have negative acceleration problems at high DPI (like Black Ops) or for games that have terrible mouse sensitivity controls--usually in integers (like many of those Korean made free to play games like Crossfire, where setting the sens from 1 to 2 in game DOUBLES the sensitivity, and there's no inbetween...., so instea d of having to use a sens of 2 at 1800 DPI, you can use a sens of 5 at 900.

This.

Lemme add that the DA BE stays a hell of a lot cleaner than the Standard 3.5G, but if you have naturally dry hands you should avoid the BE.

Totally agreed. I clean the sides 1 or 2 times a day of my standard 3.5g.
