    Great choice, and I think the ergonomics of the mouse are fantastic.

    When I first started playing CoD4 I was using a Microsoft Habu (Laser)
    I loved this mouse and everything about it was great. Then low and behold I started getting the usb disconnect/reconnect issues infamous with laser mice.

    So this weekend I decided to pick up the Razer Lachesis (Laser) and it did the exact same thing with the disconnect/reconnect problems. Plus the profile of the mouse was a little too low for my taste

    Thats how I ended up going back to optical and picking up the Logitech.

    cool, ive been using the logitech marble roller ball mouse for years, will take some getting used to, what are all the dpi settings for? does a higher dpi give you more accuracy in a game or something?

    Make sure you turn acceleration off on your mouse if you are gaming with it.

    Only if you can handle it! If you have a shaky hand then you will be less accurate. I typically run at about 800 DPI or if I move the mouse 1mm the entire screen pulls a 180 on me

    Start off with moderately setting your DPI and Polling Rate... then adjust accordingly.

    Mouse pointer acceleration, it should be in your mouse settings somewhere.

    Turning acceleration off provides more consistent mousing performance because when acceleration is on, both how far you move the mouse and how fast you move the mouse factor into how far the cursor moves on screen, but without acceleration, only how far you move the mouse determines how much the cursor moves. It will allow you to be more precise with your mouse movements.

    You only bought the greatest mouse ever. I've been using an MX518 for years now, and I have a new one in the box on my shelf for when this one gives out.

    I know there's no grand plan here. This is just the way it goes.
