CM Spawn or Xornet; what are the differences?

post #1 of 272
Thread Starter 
I am currently using a Deathadder BE, but as i mostly use a fingertip grip the BE is a little bit too big for me and I find the coating slippery.

Given the relatively low price for the CM Spawn and the Xornet I am considering giving them a shot.

What exactly are the differences between the two sensors?

Does it have any positive acceleration or prediction?

Also; does anyone know when the Xornet is going to be availiable?

Thanks

I haven't seen anyone with a xornet to test yet so I can't tell you how the tracking will be yet.

The differences we know:
Xornet is 500/1000/2000 dpi
Spawn is 800/1800/3500 dpi

Spawn is already known to have really great tracking.

Both have the same switches and are relatively light.

Xornet will be a little lighter in weight and aimed at a cheaper price.

Thanks.

I just got an email from CM customer support stating "Xornet has already launched. It is going to be available in the market very soon."

I guess at this stage there is no harm in me waiting to see how they both compare once people get their hands on them.

My only reservation about getting the spawn right now is because I've heard things about it not playing well when certain programs are running and/or some settings don't work that well.

It's a shame that the CM Storm Spawn hasn't been selling well because it's a great mouse. Hopefully, this one will sell better.

Unfortunately people just want a shiny mouse with a million DPI

Yeah it's a big shame.

I never change my dpi.

1800-2000 is just about perfect for me. Even at full hd anything more than that feels horrible.

I had massive acceleration issue's with my spawn being a low sens player, I'd love to give the Xornet a fair chance though because the shape is perfect.

Does it use the same sensor as the spawn?

By the looks of it, no.

There's a rumor it costs about 20 euros. That would be friggn cheap.

I doubt. If it will cost 30$ in the US, its very likely cost 30euro in Europe
