Well I ended up snagging a MX Master off eBay for $40. Supposedly "manufacturer refurbished" but I doubt it, probably a return that they just couldn't sell as a repackage or something. Really fucking good mouse though. I love the whole SmartShift thing; just needed to tweak it to be a little bit less sensitive than the default and it was perfect.
From the marketing stuff it sounds like a CPI toggle, but I don't get why they wouldn't just call it that instead if that's what it is.
I just ordered a Nixeus Revel and another Aurora.
Oh right. The only thing I remember about those scrolls is their absurd weight. The scroll assembly out of a G502 weighs almost half as much as my mouse.
Just invested in a corsair sabre after years of using logitech. I found that logitech mice suffer from the double click bug, and mine had been showing this during CSGO matches where I would literally have to keep on clicking in order to fire an auto-weapon
Are there any mouse size comparisons around? I use an MX518 and people say things like this mouse isn't good for fingertip, but meanwhile I have big hands and use it fingertip.
Measuring from tip of middle finger to the start of my wrist puts me at about 20-21 cm.
Convenient thing for OP.
20cm it is then.
Question: In the OP, look at something like the Logitech G403 Wired.
Then look at the G502:
Well uhh... Why? Is the friction problem the reason?
G403 on the other hand is roughly 90g w/o weight, around 105g w/ weight, much more acceptable for someone who will be moving for prolonged periods of time.
See, I figured it could be weight, but that would be stupid because some people like to play competitive FPS games with a heavier mouse so that would be a really silly thing to put against it as a universal rule rather than personal taste, but also because the Logitech G402 has a similar warning saying it's not good for FPS games with no discernible reasoning as to why while the G400 is the same weight and has no such warning. So I started for looking for alternative explanations.
So instead of "Don't use this for FPS games", consider instead "Note: this mouse is heavier than average which some users may not find comfortable for prolonged play." This solves the problem of the vague descriptor with no justification and further goes towards making the guide more objective.
There's a difference between recommendations and saying "don't use this", however I do see where you're coming from and will update the OP to better reflect that it is heavy, since I could understand the confusion there, also the G402 having that same notice is definitely a mistake by me, since the G400 and G402 are very similar. It's probably a mistake I made when C+Ping a review over to tailor toward the G402, since the G402 and G502 are pretty similar, I probably forgot to remove the note at the end indicating that it's too heavy to be used for prolonged periods of time.
Thanks for pointing that out.
Wrote a post on that a while ago, feel free to list more or tell me which ones in my post are or are not worth doing, you may be more knowledgeable in that aspect than I.
I went to the lost city of Atlanta last year
I'm surprised they didn't just use an H lens to increase the tracking speed instead of engineering an accelerometer for a mouse. It'd be so much cheaper for a start.
Well with an H lens you'd get effective 125 CPI natives.
On the brightside it's definitely a Kinzu v1, I looked at the lens and mouse feet to be sure, the product number also matches up with what it should be, the weird thing is the Kinzu v1 "Black" that I got actually has a Kinzu v1 White P/N which makes me think it's a weird knockoff shell, not that I care. I could just put the PCBs into my broken Sudden Attack's shell if it's required.
