Anyone have problems with the angled sensor? I cant make a straight line. I don't know if is my hand size and my grip ( Hybrid Claw/Palm and 17cm hand.) or it's the angled sensor.

Also, the G pro have the same sensor angle?

Thanks.

The G403 I know has a weird sensor angle, but as far as I know, my G Pro is completely straight.

If this is some kind of manufacturing error, I'd love a replacement. biggrin.gif

The sensor is fine. it's your grip on the mouse and how you're moving it.

What do you mean by "cant make a straight line"?
If you mean the line you draw is curved, that's because these mice don't have angle snapping.
If you mean the line is running diagonal, like "from top left to bottom right" or "from bottom left to top right", that's because of your grip.

Get higher speed memory and manage to run your game at 240+FPS with all kinds of v-sync and buffering turned off before you talk about mouse precision.

Logitech China even has an official tip on why G403 users can't draw a horizontal line.



I believe G403 is not the only mouse that would have this problem. If one is using IE3.0, he's likely to have the same experience.

It's just that G403 is so hyped. People have really high expectation of it.
So many people put interests and attention into it. So many bought it even if they never handled a gaming mouse before.

People notice some issues on G403 and yelling around every forum, saying they are cheated by Logitech.
It's just because they never really paid attention to a mouse like they did to G403. It's not G403 having the issues.

Thank you for all that info!
My grip is exaclty what picture shows : 1-3-1. My previous mouse was a 4 years old D.A where I tried to apply the same grip on G403.

Now , I'll start my training with a new grip style

My grip is "angled" too. But I'm ok with G403 because I have been gripping like this for years and I'm use to such situations. My wrist movement will compensate my angled grip.
It is actually automatically done by the brain, not because I spent time adapting to it. Everyone can adapt to it in a hour of gaming session.
Like I said, it's just that most people never tried to draw a horizontal line before they receive a G403.

I did that years ago with the MX518. No big deal, I adjusted to it over time.
