what is the 1.1/1.1a version. I just ordered this one http://www.frys.com/product/4113783?...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

how can i tell if its the 1.1 version or whatever? and does it use the same sensor as the ime 3.0?

I don't think its possible to buy the old version unless you buy one from a garage sale. And yes it will have the same sensor as the IME 3.0. That's pretty expensive for a WMO though.

Same **** different smell! They changed some things like the mouse buttons but the difference really isnt noticable.

Pre 2002 or 2003 versions of the WMO used an Agilent/Avago based sensor. Most likely had moderate mouse correction.

You're likely to have a 2008+ version with the Intellimouse 3.0 PCB. There's literally like 3-4 versions of these mice.

when u get the mouse i suggest two things, replace the absolutely horrible pads with teflon ones, and open the mouse up and destroy the backward facing diode (which is utterly useless and annoying).

one thing is for sure, if u play cs 1.6 u will instanteniously become better, for every other fast paced shooter it will feel like **** probably, IMHO. just to troll a bit...

One of the best mice ever made ... shape wise and sensor. If you know how to replace the switches and cord, then it's THE BEST.

I didn't replace them because they don't bother me. As soon as they break i just buy a new WMO (they're quite cheap, i payed 11.99 pounds for the one i'm using atm). But this guy did it and it looks awsome:

The cord however is a bit of a problem. I'm looking for a guy who has experience in soldering (im not that good at it). What i did was i painted the mouse a glossy black and used some insulation tape on the sides to increase the grip. Also i use corepad G500 skates because i love the glide of those big skates (EC1, G400, G500 etc). It now feels like a different mouse with better grip and smoother glide. Replacing the cord and adding Omrons seems to be the cherry on top of the cake. This mouse works like a charm compared to these bugged, more expensive, recently released mice from Razer, Steelseries etc etc etc: no acceleration, no jitter, low LOD, no z-axis issue.
