    What about acceleration test? Does it return into same spot on screen if you move it from place fast and then back slowly?
    Many mouses have Acceleration implemented even on HW level.

    This one does not have acceleration(according to corsair). I might get it sometime this year to replace my current corsair m65 pro which does not have hw acceleration either.

    Usual suspects with hw acceleration is laser mice. Opticals don't have em usually especially if combined with Pixart sensors.

    Through yesterday for sure, and possibly today, Amazon was selling the Sades Q9 Gaming Mouse for $7. It's a good one overall and goes up to 3200 dpi. At checkout use the promo code "SADESQ99". Normally $15.

    The Corsair reviewed here has some add-ons but I keep looking at that highly flared bottom ramp. I just replaced a mouse like that with the Sades... the flare was hard to grip and continually drove my thumb up towards the side buttons. Aggravating, and I never adapted to it.

    I don't think you get better components in the high-$$ mice; just more bling. I recently had to replace the LMB microswitch in a Logitech G400S mouse. I found it was a cheap Chinese component, much inferior to the Japanese switch I installed.

    Like the design. Never had an Corsair mouse, they are kinda rare and pricy here.

    They're definitively a bit pricier though I do like the Corsair mice I've used thus far although this updated CUE 2.x software still has some quirks but it's being improved frequently with new releases. :)
    (The USB device driver this uses has some issues too but nothing severe.)

    Oh components are for sure better. But those better components can be had for maybe 40-50€ it comes down to sensor and switches. G400s was a bad mouse.
