Edit: I believe that this tape trick will not work with laser sensors.
Laser light is just too narrow. example - video

Oh Okay. it's actually an Avago sensor. Yeah, it will work, but pretty difficult to position placement.

V-Track doesn't have any "tape fix" or "light blocking mechanism" to achieve that effect. The light is being trown towards the ground completely vertical thus whenever you lift your mouse, if it's not exactly 90º from the surface, it will stop tracking.

We're talking about a milimeter or sub-milimeter precision to get the desired effect. Also, it depends on the lens, if the light is being twisted around you might even want to put the tape "fix" between the light stream and the sensor itself.

Dodgy.

I know that, but they're the only company that's actively trying to lower LOD on optical.. If only they shipped with prediction free sensors..

They also had that button that shut off the light when you lifted the mouse..

Tweaks settings for 3 hours. Plays for 1.

It makes a tremendous positive difference when used on my old optical mouse (A4 TECH OPTO ECO 612D).

Great tip. I've had G400 a good while now and haven't tried this before. Makes this epic mouse even better. On my goliathus i have 1mm or less lift-off and it still tracks over 3m+ tongue.gif
