^ Probably yes but the bundled SetPoint software has always been a POS with Logitech so I never use it on my MX518.

The new Setpoint for the G500 and G9x is pretty ok. Though you're right about the old ones (mx518 and others), it was pure evil.

Yeah remember the "setpoint could not be installed" [sic] message, then having to screw around deleting wdf1000 files etc...? Oh and the sensitivity bug (since fixed)...lol

Thankfully those days are behind us now (knock on wood).

Wow.. I have been using and loving my Logitech G5 for a few years now and after reading this, it looks like it is on the lower end of the spectrum.. All is know is that I hate the idea of the Razr Naga so much that I refuse to buy a Razr mouse. I made a gaming mouse poll so that we can keep easy track of which mice people have had good experiences with.

Best Experience so far:
  • Deathadder (old and Black Edition)
  • Steelseries Xai
  • Logitech G400

Somewhere in the middle:
  • Logitech G500: Awkward sensor placement + shape is slightly bigger --> I don't like it

Epic fail:
  • Razer Imperator: Z-Axis issues

Finally got my epic combination after ordering new mouseskates (screws are under some of them):

The old Deathadder 1800 DPI sensor with firmware 1.28 NDC (Impact Prediction), 1.08 Drivers and the Black Edition shape \o/

Scroll was broken from my old DA (and hated the glossy sides), but luckely, aside from a few details on the circuit boards, the design is pretty much the same so I used the BE's scroll.

Small update:

NVIDIA Display Driver Service causes mouselag in CS Source and perhaps other games.

Hey, got any info about Ulti-Mat Chill ?

What I found about from reviews is that software isnt on pair with the one which comes with Xai and scroll isnt the best out there.

Never seen it or tried it but the shape and build materials seems pretty similar to a Puretrak Valor:

http://www.puretrak.com/products/item/32

If so the build quality will be quite bad. With the Puretrak mouse, holding the mouse to firmly would accidentally click mouse4, even though you're not pressing directly onto the button.

My CM Storm Spawn arrived. With the 30a firmware it's a very solid mice and (considering my small hands) I prefer it over the Deathadder.

The newer firmwares give you a lower LOD, but they come with lot's of other issues, so 30a ftw.

Yeah I prefer this over my G9x, pretty solid build and tracks well on my softpad. They are coming out with the Xornet (black version) and that one has a 2000DPI sensor for those people who like lower DPI.

Im thinking of getting CM xornet which is identical to spawn. Any idea if someone with a hybrid palm/claw/grip will feel comfortable with this mouse?

Im not sure if it would feel good since the ring finger rest is so huge that make the mouse wide..

It's the thrid most comfortable mouse I've used. With the Xai (1st) and G400 (2nd). Have you ever held a Steelseries Ikari? The shape is similar but smaller.

Next mouse I'll probably buy is this: http://www.zowiegear.com/component/c...dextrous-mouse

Hoping they get it right, the sensor is almost flawless but up until now any manufacturer using a custom lens has managed to **** it up.

1800 is good enough for me, anything else is just a little extra. Atm the Xai has accel issues when doing fast swipes, which the DA sensor doesn't have and this one is using the DA sensor.

God knows what they're trying to pull off with that custom lens though since it only goes up to 2300 dpi instead of 3500.

They might actually get LOD right without ****ing up the sensor, with the only side effect being settling for lower DPI.

Prediction aside atm there's only 2 gaming mice with a flawless sensor:

Deathadder and the G400 (MX518)

And Mkilbride, I made this guide so some people would actually understand there's more to a mouse then DPI.

Not sure if serious...

I play Quake with a 400DPI mouse at 1680x1050 and it's smooth as butter.

Similar in shape, they only have 400 dpi but they're reliable as hell.
