I've had the same settings for mouse cursor speed in all versions of macOS. For some reason, with High Sierra (currently on 10.13.1), mouse cursor movement has been kind of slow on and off, like something's holding it back a bit, it's hard to explain and happens randomly. Wondering if any of you had the same issues?

This is a clean install, FWIW.

Same here. I had to adjust my settings and increase the mouse speed.

What speed have you got it at? Before Mac's I came from the windows world and I found that apples factory mouse curser speed to be absolutely outrageously obnoxiously slow. First thing I did was put it to full speed. I like blazing fast curser speed with minimal mouse movement.

I've got mine set at these settings..it definitely needed to be done to use the mouse at all!

Honestly as a relatively recent mac convert "only a year". To get my mouse speed to be like I was used to and expected in my windows systems I set my tracking speed to full speed. Anything less then that is just obnoxiously slow in my opinion compared to what I was used to.
