I'm going to try to figure out what kind of sensor it uses (everything is in Chinese but the brand name says Eplon with 3 dragon heads identical to what you see in the video) and maybe post some internal pics later.

If you put a copperhead sensor in this thing and off centered it a bit, it may or may not be Derp's favorite mouse of all time

Plenty of better sensors out now than the Copperhead's sensor. The Copperhead loses perfect control before 1 m/s.
Meh

If you don't want to open it then do some simple tests and we gonna guess what sensor it has. You can use enotus for max speed, ms paint for prediction and maybe do some other tests. I think it might be avago adns-3060 which is pretty good .

Look under $7 Deathadder.

See red LED where infrared sensor should be.

Guess I made the right decision in not buying one. Those lights would give me a migraine

Question - is the build quality better than Razer?

I sincerely doubt it. The mouse is really hollow and light, though, the top part with the rmb and lmb are rubberized plastic and it has a good click to it. Could anyone hook me up with a guide about how to test these things?
