I don't know how long it will take to adjust, if at all , as the horse has already bolted the stable!!

Any opinions guys on the suggested polling rate(500 default & DPI 1800) and work room temp. as the weather is currently very hot & humid. Razer has suggested something about that I couldn't rightly understand.....whew, that is a long post
I have absoultly no issues at all and had it longer then that and have the polling rate set to the highest at 1000 and the highest dpi and in game i have sensitivity set at 2.5

Okay, some say polling rate need not exceed 125 or 250 (Roccat had these options) polling rate [haven't verified that fact though], my DA Black Ed. has been set at 125 I think, next options are 500 and 1000 - no 250. I'll switch between 125 & 500. DA Black Ed.'s problem is they have the profile switch button near the sensor of the mouse ...and it's a very flimsy one!

Know that the G400 has an upgrade: the G400s, just so you know. If you want to compare more mice and see which one fits your budget you can check bestgamingmousecentral for more.

ok i know i am replying quite late and in all probability you must have bought one for yourself by now but still i am suggesting a mouse. now in this "egg and chicken" question (as said by AstaLaVista) this is like introducing a broccoli actually the mouse i am suggesting is in now way possible a gaming mouse. ofcourse you can play with it (like i do play CS:GO) but it has no extra thumb button or any such gaming feature. i am not a hardcore gamer. but i am an architect and it requires you to work for about 6-8 hours daily on computer for designing purposes. i have very large hands with a big palm and long fingers. i am also been in search for a big mouse that has form that allows your hand to rest on it in the laziest manner possible. i ended up with DELL MS111-P . this is by far the best big mouse i have come across for a palm grip and for long hours of working for people with big hands. it does not have gaming features and looks ordinary with no LED lights or stylistic materials but its form is just mind blowing for long hours of working as it supports your hand completely. given the cost Rs. 230 it is something you might wanna buy to give ur hands a change from your regular mouse and change the position you keep your hand in, every now and then. i would have ruined my hand using a targus if it were not for this big lady :) i am on a budget tighter than your's so stuff like roccat, razer, and r.a.t are just not an option :) plus i am a designer first and then a casual gamer.
hope it helps.

To be honest, the only "real" difference between an average mouse and a gaming one is the polling rate and DPI. You can still game with a standard mouse. The main thing really is comfort.

Average mice have a 125hz polling rate and a 800DPI. Gaming mice can be 125hz/500hz/1000hz and usually have a higher DPI, 800+. More buttons/flashing lights are just "extras".

However you can notice a difference when using a higher polling rate (ie between 125hz and 500hz. You can't notice between 500hz and 1000hz) and a higher DPI. It does tend to make it hard to going back to an average mouse, even outside of games. Personally I find 125hz/800DPI to be very sluggish.

I've gone through a fair few gaming mice and I prefer my Thermaltake Theron because it's very comfortable for me and my grip style. it's one of the reasons I've through a few mice. But what suits me won't suit everyone.

That theron looks like a G9 in disguise or am I wrong... I love my G9 but again, it is the most uncomfortable mouse I have used to date.

I do love the way I can set it up for most games without having to have dedicated settings for each every other game.

Nah, I don't think it is just going by G9 pics. But there do appear to be some similarities though. Hard to tell without ever trying the G9 however.

The Theron also has a right side button too which suits my grip style.

The way I hold a mouse is: R-Thumb for movement/side buttons - Index for L-Click/scroll - Middle finger for R-Click and Ring finger for the right side button/opposite side movement. My lower palm/wrist is usually planted in a fixed spot and the mouse is mainly controlled between Thumb and ring finger. (In a claw shape, held on a 30-45 degree anti-clockwise angle)

How you actually grip and move the mouse has a huge impact on comfort. That's why one size will never fit all.

Another mouse I find very comfortable is the Razer Imperator - but it does not have a right side button.

The most uncomfortable mouse I have personally used was the Razer Lachesis, an ambidextrous design. Great mouse, but uncomfortable.

Being right handed, this is how I mostly use it for all my Shooter Games... there is something about the shape of the mouse and my hand (big hand) that we just does not play well together. Budget and the likeness of its option does not allow me to get another one.
