Anyone used the Roccat XTD?

Looking at getting a new gaming mouse as my old Logitech G5, while it has served me well, is on it's last legs. I have enjoyed it, so another Logitech isn't out of the question, but was looking around and the XTD caught my eye. So, anyone have experience with it? I've also used a death adder before and liked it, is the Deathadder 2013 anything substantially different at all?

If the shape works for you it should be alright.

However, it is a fairly heavy mouse with a gimmicky "add your own weight" (to your already heavy mouse) feature. Things like this ( and adjustable lights and so forth) always make me skeptical. I am not sure about the performance of the sensor, or even which sensor it is really. They call it a "Pro aim r3" sensor, but given that is is a 8.200 DPI sensor, my bet is that it is just the Avago ADNS 9800, which is an alright sensor as far as laser sensors go, but still suffers from a slight positive hardware acceleration.

Imho, if you like the shape of the G5, then really the best option might be the G400s. It has one of the best sensors on the market (optical), it has a shape that you know that works for you, 3 year warranty that Logitech really sticks to, and I think it is cheaper as well.

If you like the Deathadder, that is also a solid option. As far as I know the 3G, 3.5G and 4G , all good sensors.
