My System Specs


How old is the mouse? Is it used at all? I found that the sensor on my basic logitech laser mouse started getting jittery after six years of steady use.

Although I don't think this is the case with you, I figured I'd bring it up just in case.

My System Specs


well my razor is about 5-6 months old I think, I don't like M1 or M2 either, I find them too loud.

About the jiggle thing it does, when it does it, on screen it randomly jumps around about the size of this . I have to move the mouse to make it stop, its really annoying when I'm a gunner in a tank in BF3, when I'm holding the fire button I find it starts too sometimes.

Maybe I'll buy a mouse pad and put that on the phone book. The mouse is the perfect size and shape though for fingertip grip, there was hardly any like it with +800dpi, I liked my old M100 logitech but it was to inaccurate for BC2 and BF3, only 800dpi, but it tracked perfect on any surface.

edit: I think its getting worse, aiming in a tank is getting harder, I'm going to try using a cardboard thing I have here

The pointer bonces/'vibrates all over the place' (just like it does day to day in WINDOWS 7) after I start shooting something like a tank machine gun, same everytime, from a jeep, chopter.... A phone book for the mouse helps none... This near useless mouse gets me killed in BF3, it could be worse..... I spent +40 on this and now I'm looking for a $15 logitech again because I now they can track well on ANY surface.
Higher dpi mice don't track smoothly on uneven surfaces. 3500dpi is really really high, it tracks too good for your bed sheet uses.
