    If u are using laser sensor get a hardpad not cloth..
    Laser sensor will strugle tracking on cloth.
    G600 is an ancient mouse it uses AVAGO ADNS-9800 which is the best laser sensor but still inferior than even entry level optical such as PMW3330. (but they can track on any surface)
    No matter whichpad u are buying as long its still cloth then laser sensor will struggle.
     
    It will get really jitter especially with a very slow movement and it wont be precise (precision is different than accuration)
    Its a mistake getting the G600 in the first place unless there is something that u want from the mouse.
    For $48 u can get like Zowie ECB series,Logitech G402/G502,Logitech G102/203,Rival 300,Rival 110 or Deathadder elite which has much better sensor.

    Oh I see, the cloth on the top of mine is paper thin because I've had it for so long it's worn out lol. I've decided that if the mouse works fine I'll keep it & upgrade to a G240 in about a month when I have the money. If there are noticeable tracking issues though & the layout is too difficult to learn then I'll just return it for an Optical mouse because I prefer thicker cloth mouse pads anyway. I'm really hoping it's tolerable though because there ain't many choices with enough buttons in my current price range. Of course I don't absolutely need 12 side buttons, even 2 would be an upgrade over what I have & such a mouse could just become a backup one if in the future I could afford something even better. I can't thank you enough for all the advice though, I'll sleep better knowing what I do now.
     
    P.S: I stumbled upon the Corsair MM600, a solid mat with low & high friction sides which would suit me perfectly if it wasn't too big & high priced.

    U see what matter is the surface, u can get a hardpad mousepad with a cloth surface and a hardpad with glossy surface. If the cloth surface is too thick then laser sensor will have trouble tracking on it. Find the thinnest one as possible because laser sensor will track pass that and onto the hardpad below the surface.
    The purpose of the cloth on the surface is allowing the user to have more control.
     
    I dont think it will since afaik G440 use cloth on the surface, And optical only track the surface.
    I'd say just buy em both since mousepad is relatively cheap and will last for a long time.

    Your welcome
     
    Well the thicker the material the deeper the laser will track and lead to inconsistent tracking issues.
    I use G240 Mousepad even though its thin i must admit its very well made although the lack of bordered side made the edges of the mousepad peels easily, But overall its a good mousepad and its cheap.
     
    I am looking forward on your review on the G600.

    Ah okay & also, I really need to thank you for one thing in particular, your hand size guide. Now I finally know mine are considered large (7.5 inches long)! I had asked & researched that online before in the past but could never find anything. So too big of a mouse will probably never be a problem & since I was able to use a Katar for over a year, too small doesn't exist for me either. Once the G600 get's here (probably tomorrow night), I'll report back that day, then a week & lastly a month later on how it's performed on my cheap cloth mouse pad. When I am able to get a new Cloth or Hard mouse mat by Logitech I'll then compare that to what I've got & note the difference I feel. My only concerns with the hard kind are: lack of control, noise & my finger nails scratching on it. Although that would be a problem with their cloth one too because it's really thin, which makes me wonder if a really thick cloth pad would help with a laser mouse.

    He meant to say on a hardpad.
    And remember its just a speculation not the exact number.
    And even though its just 5-6% its more than enough to annoy competitive player but for MOBA/MMO or RTS sensor is not a big deal for them.
    What matter is the button,size,comfort and shape.

    Mike Soda reacted to Hiya! in Before You Buy Gaming Mice (General Technical Terms,Optical vs Laser,Popular Mouse Sensor,Mice Recommendation,And Many More!)   
    Shopping for a mouse is very simple.
    You find a mouse that suits your budget and personal preferences.
    But why there are so many mice out there with Laser and Optical sensor? High Dpi? and use different Optical or Laser sensor such as PMW3310/3360/S9800?
    And why there's gaming mouse anyway? Can we just buy a regular mouse and use it for everything?
    For casual gaming you might be fine with it but if you're a serious gamer. Especially competitive player, Then you will need a gaming mouse.
    Why? Because the sensor you found on general optical mouse won't be able to keep up with your hand movement and will fail you in the end.
    Many professional FPS player can move their hand at around 2-3m/s and because of this they need a sensor that can keep up with their speed and these sensors are usually found in gaming mice.
    That being said doesn't mean you won't need a gaming mouse if you are just a casual gamer. Having a great sensor and features such as tons of buttons for macros or MMO is nice to have.

    7.Mice Recommendation
     
    Before we begin I must remind you that there's no such things as a perfect mouse. Because everyone has their own preferences.
    You don't always have to buy the best mouse. It may have the best sensor, the best build quality and the best feature but what if it doesn't suit your hand or grip style? You'll end up feeling uncomfortable when you use it for a long periods of time.
    That's why people tend to find a mouse that is perfect for their hand and grip style. They often sacrifice sensor performance and features but only as long as the sensor is good enough for their needs.
    But again, everyone is different! Some people might prefer performance over comfort and vice versa.
    So a good mouse is a mouse that will suit your budget, your hand and general preferences. You don't always have to buy the best mouse.
    And I apologize if there's any grammatical mistakes because English is not my primary language.
    And if somehow there are some mistakes in this thread then please correct me and I will update the thread because I am no expert and people make mistakes.

    I did listed them i even add my personal opinion just not the price because its always changing and its vary in each country.
    And i didn't add the switch lifespan because no one lives to acually test that on top of that u can receive a faulty product cause a lot of people seems complained about their mouse buttons are wearing out too fast even though it stated that it has 30M Clicks. so yeah nope.
     
    Example:
    Razer lancehead TE
    Sensor  : PMW3389
    Button   : 2 Side button on each side and 2 Dpi shift
    Weight  : 105Grams
    Design  : Ambidextrous
    Cable   : Braided
    Games : FPS
     
    Rival 300 is a big mouse not too big though, more like for medium-large hand mouse. it equip with 3310 sensor which is not a huge problem for you MMO Gamer.
    110 is a small ambidextrous design mouse and equip with Truemove 1 optical sensor which is a great sensor even better than PMW3310.

    I think you're making it more complicated than it needs to be.
     
    If you want it to recognize your finger or thumb the best, Android Central says to scan your finger parallel with the sensor. Scan long strips parallel, then take some perpendicular. 

    Honestly, a fingerprint isn't as secure as a password or even a PIN, since somebody could theoretically lift your fingerprint off of something you've touched and unlock your phone. I've never seen this happen on any measurable scale, but institutions like governments and the police could get into your phone more easily if they had the fingerprint option.
     
    My dad's S7 has no issues recognizing his fingerprint. It's a fast sensor and shouldn't miss it often.

    You're right that the game isn't as well optimized as it should be but it would run well on your system, so long as you turn shadows off for example. I used to run it tolerably on an FX 8350 with an HD 7870. I say to avoid Connery because it's mostly players from Asia and they're really laggy. So, for you in the US, Emerald would be the best server. Team up with an outfit and try running with a squad for the first few days and they'll soon show you the ropes.

    If you're willing to go first, rather than third person shooter, then Planetside 2 may be worth a look. There is very little that's pay to win, the starter weapons are actually good and it's FTP. Just avoid Connery if possible and choose a different server.

    motherboard drivers: only really needed when using windows 7 and even 8 to an extent
    it's basically a regular driver you'll download for your specific chipset of something
    like, the motherboard driver for bluetooth would be the same as the driver for the bluetooth chip itself usually.
    if windows default substitute works.. then it ain't broke and so don't fix it.

    =\ I use Amazon for browsing prices but have yet to buy anything from there, especially with how much sales tax they charge compared to Newegg which has none. Who was the seller on Amazon? If Corsair then your manufacturers warranty still applies, just contact them directly.
