the G500 and the DA made for Plam grip - you should be great with each one of both.

If you likes cloth pad - I'll recommended you the DA black edition, which is track greater and dont have any problems with accelrations and etc.

the G500 tracks better than DA ONLY on hard surfaces but suffers from 5% of randomally positive accel that build-in the sensor and cannot be removed, and also have negative accelration on soft/cloth pads.

As Already said, I'm really commended to you to wait for the PureTrak Valor which suppose to be greater more than DA, and more the G500.

Since you said you're looking for a larger mouse I would recommend:

- MX518
- DeathAdder
- Ikari Optical
- IME 3.0

If you absolutely prefer laser I would go with something that uses the Avago ADNS-9500 (sensor used in G9X, G500, Xai), as Razer's laser mice seem to suffer from a plethora of random problems depending on the mouse (Z-axis, jitter, etc). I'd rather deal with small amounts of acceleration as opposed to random lift-off problems.

How much negative accel does the g500 and xai have on cloth?

Depends on the cloth pad and how fast you're moving the mouse. My G500/Xai on my goliathus speed tracks at higher speeds before hitting negative acceleration compared to my talent.

MX518 or G5/G500. Great palm grip mice.

How much is this Valor going to run? It does look pretty nice.

My vote is for the G500. I can't say too much about the performance of the mouse since I'm not that much into fine tuning my mouse. As long as I can feel it is significantly better than the generic stuff, I'm good.

However the G500 excels in terms of warranty, service and software. Logitech has the best customer service ever, seriously. So friendly and cooperative. And the Setpoint software has plenty of options. The three puttons on the side of the mouse are convenient, and I love the fast/slow modes on the scrolling wheel.

I had a MX518, then a temporary IntelliMouse 3.0. Then I bought a G5. When that died, I easily had it swapped for a G500 without paying anything because Logitech has such a great customer service. If you buy a G500 you get a good product which will satisfy you and an awesome company that takes care of their customers. That's important to remember as well.

I have no experience with other brands of mice, so I can't tell you how their customer service is.

G500 or Xai
My G5 is 6 years old, it hasn't had a single problem and isn't worn.
All my friends around town who owned Razer mice.. well their mice didn't make it past 2 years.

Take them out of the packaging and try them yourself. If an Employee asks *** you're doing.

Ask them if they test drive a car before a purchase... to be nice

Or, just tell them to **** and color while you test your new toy out

That said, I've stuck by Razer after my MX518. I have the Razer Mamba and it's by far the best mouse I've ever owned

EDIT: And whoever said that their mouse hasn't last 2yrs. What were you trying to do? Intentionally break it? I've had my Deathadder for over 2yr's before my Mamba and no wear on it, either.
