With that said, the fact that you cant notice/think that its not there, no making to sensor to be "Flawless".
Btw, accelration [positive/negative] may be not noticeable, not its not mean its not there, its still effects you..but you can get used to it and frag with it just as well as great optical sensors.
Like I said they are over-hyped on this forum. You know it really does not matter if the sensor is "flawless" if you can get used to it and game just as well as any other mouse.
Besides if laser mice are SO bad then why do companies still make laser mice? If optical is SO good then why are most optical mice lower quality then laser. The only quality optical mouse I know of is my Steelseries Ikari optical and even it is cheaper in terms of build quality then its laser counterpart. I gave away my MX518 because the DPI buttons sucked, they were hard to reach and hard to press. It was made of cheap plastic and the coating started pealing off.
Oh and you know I would buy a DA: BE if only it had a dedicated DPI switching button. Why does it not have this feature that one would think is standard in gaming mice these days?
If like you say the sensor does not matter then you can game just as well with either sensor, how then is optical superior if it doesn't make you a better gamer? I personally am going to buy the mouse with the higher build quality and wider set of functional buttons.Edited by james_ant - 10/29/11 at 5:38pm
