Did a little test just swiping the 3.5 DA and mx518 across the mousepad as fast as I could and there was clearly a noticeable difference. The deathadder was pretty easy to get to malfunction while I don't think I ever got the 518 to.
The mx518 sensor has a malfunction speed of around 4 m/s I think? So I would guess the deathadder is no more than around 3m/s.
Either way it's a great sensor and sounds like the best option. It would never be a problem for 99% of users anyways and I'm sure I would be fine if I just raised my sensitivity a little.
So you base the malfunction speed of 1 mousepad and don't consider that you might have a defect unit? Even if it were only 3/ms that would still be the width of 10x the medium sized steelseries qck or steelseries 9hd
I doubt anyone move their hands that fast...
as for the mx518 sensor, the malfunction speed is 4/ms in the best case
But the perfect control speed is no near that high as you can see. Its very unstable over 2/ms on any mousepad
