Have flawed sensor, (A9800, A9500). For every movement, you can have a positive inconsistency of 0-5% (hardware accel). Unlike optical sensors, this accel is completely random, and cannot be compensated with muscle memory.
So for example, in a 180 degreee turn, you can offshoot 181-189 degree. Not a good sensor for twitch FPS games/demand good response.
The MLG version has a massive input lag at launch, idk if they fixed the issue with newer firmware.
SS software "engine 2/3" also install a custom mouse driver for your mouse. I would expect this to cause unneeded input latency. Windows default mouse driver is better and causes less problems.
Graph showing inconsistent tracking distance 0-5%. Tested with Steelseries XAI (9500)
There's a slight feel of input latency with the G400S (4000DPi firmware) - to avoid this, I would advise to buy a G400 non-S

I would not get the 2013. The 2013 has a processed feel to the sensor (input delay) makes the cursor floaty.
The Deathadder BLACK or the older 3G version has a much more "raw" feeling to the sensor. Making it more precise and natural to aim/point with.
As far for sensor performance it goes
DA Black > DA3G/1800 > DA3.5/3500 > DA4G-2013/6400 = Krait 2013
Razer's quality is not that good imo, I'd avoid the DA unless you REALLY have to use the shape.
Also, no matter what DPi you are using, all the steps are interpolated and/or have consistency issue. The ONLY DPi step that is usable on the DA is 1800.
If you think 1800 is too high for game, you can recalibrate the sensitivity to match your old DPi and game sens using this tool: http://www.mouse-sensitivity.com/
Mouse that is good (2014 standards)
G502 - PMW3366 Optical - 50-12000DPi with 50DPi native step (if it is divisible by 50 without decimal, it is native). Work best 400-1600DPi. Best sensor on the market atm. 7m/s control speed for low sensitivity players.
-Mouse feet issue, heavy mouse (120g)
PMW3310 line - is a low cost sensor alternative to 3366, 5m/s control speed. Work best at 400DPi (problem is, higher the DPi, higher the input lag).
Mionix Avior / Naos 7000 - Ambidextrous / Right handed ergonomic mouse. Best build quality atm for 3310 sensor mouse.
SS Rival - Build quality problem with first batch, coating not so good. Early firmware had DPi switch bug.
Roccat KPO Military - ?
Corsair M45 - slight input latency, might get fixed with newer firmwares as corsair rep seems active on ESR/OCN forums
Microsoft Intellimouse 1.1-1.1A/Explorer 3.0/WMO1.1 - MLT04 sensor, good for 1.5m/s when USB overclock to 500Hz (tut: http://www.overclock.net/t/596276/ch...000hz-or-lower) - not work on windows8. 400DPi ONLY. No negative or positive accel if speed is below 1.5m/s.
-Need change mouse feet, and mouse microswitch (recommend hyperglide and DF2C-F-7N switch)
