I don't believe Hyperglide's old MX518 mouse feet are thick enough for the new model, either. Glide feels scratchier in comparison to my other mice with Hyperglides.
Anything is better than the G Pro wired buttons... even if they are stiffer than the original. Stiffer is better than a feather light button clicking on it's own.

Are they stiffer though? Just one experience here telling that.

just got the mouse today everything feels great, except the sensor. i guess i just have to get used to it, but it feels like my aim is really off.

Have anybody else had trouble with the mouse buttons not registering clicks occasionally? I have the china ebay one if that matters. Like if I go to ADS with right click it might not register the first time around, and even left click doesn't register the first time. It's a weird issue, and tinfoil hat me automatically starts thinking counterfit mouse.

i see no reason to upgrade if you have a perfectly working g400s. g400s has lower click latency, buttons feel lighter, it doesn't have that weird grippy side texture and subjective of course, but the sensor on the g400s just feels better. i like the onboard memory on the mx518L though. it's definitely a solid mouse.

That would be my luck if that was the case. Have to give it some more time to see if it gets better with use, have little time to game these days.

I'm having the same feelings regarding the sensor, but I was just thinking it was me getting used to a "worse" sensor with the g400s.
would love more thoughts on this.
it's definitely slower at the same dpi though. 800dpi on g400s is not 800dpi on mx518 legendary.

Measure cpi with mousetester 800 is probably 750/775 on the hero

I got around 716-719.
shame my g400s is in pieces, or I would meassure that one too.
nvm it's even lower than that closer to 700 I think.
so ye it's off by about a 100 I'd say.

Did you ever measure and write down your sensitivity for FPS games in inch or centimeter for one 360° turn?
