Is QcK a good pad for the Logitech G9X? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I have this exact combo and have no problems. Can't really comment or compare to other mouse and mousepad combos since I've used these 2, but no problems for me.

I already have G9X. I'm considering getting a Qck. Should I go for it or not?

I've used some generic cloth pads for the last year or so. Didn't experience any tracking issues except that they offer more resistance than I'd like and wear out fast. They feel more comfortable though.

Bottom line:
I need a cheap and small mousepad that will make my mouse float over it and not kill the mouse feets.

I had the opportunity to try the avago 9500 on a QcK mousepad, and did notice negative accelaration.

I describe it in this review of the logitech G500
http://www.overclock.net/mice/989630-logitech-g500-review-gamers-perspective.html

While I do believe that some people may not have this problem, it is likely that the problems dont occur due to the way they use their mouse. For example, the problem is less pronounced or even not there when you are a very high sensitivity user. Or when you use the mouse/pad for drawing rather then gaming (slow movement). For me, it seemed obvious, and easy to notice. I was able to test the pad using both an optical and laser sensor (G500 and deathadder v1). I also changed to a hard pad on which I tried both mice again.

I hope it helps. To be honest, for gaming at least, I would advice against the QcK for the G9X. Though I have seen people say the sensor performs well on some cloth pads...

Just curious, is the G9x supposed to perform better on a non-cloth pad? I'm currently using G9x and QcK and it seems fine to me. But then again, I haven't tried any other mousepads so I have nothing to compare it to. Do you have other mousepads that you would suggest for the G9x?

Yes the g9x benefits from a hard mousepad. The mionix mousepad is pretty good.

While I have owned a variety of mousepads over the years, the only hardpad I used for this specific sensor (in the G500) was the razer sphex. Tracking seemed to be excellent. It is also inexpensive and in the same size-category as the qck. Since it's not ultra-smooth like some hard pads, the transition from cloth may be a little easier. Though take into account that switching to a hard surface may take some getting used to.

You can try and see whether you have the same problem, simply by fast swipes on medium sensitivity (turn acceleration off in the software). Generally though, if there was no problem that bothered you before dont worry too much about it. Just as an example, its not a problem that is gonna hinder you when aiming in a First person shooter. It might bother you when you need to quickly turn around and do a fast swipe for example. But even then, it depends on your settings and the speed at which you swipe. The problem is most pronounced when swiping a large distance at a very high speed.

People generally tend to overstate tracking problems. Just make sure the acceleration thing is not something that happens noticably too often. You can play with it, unless you are a competitive gamer.

Using both, I have no problems with basic FPS functions. The pad offers perhaps a bit too much resistance when I move my G9x in a straight line (it feels like the mouse "sticks" a bit when moving it from stationary), but when I get going, the surface feels great. If I could only get these damned creases out, then it'd be even better.
