I believe it's more to do with how the mouse is recognized under windows.

Not 100% sure, but the Xai isn't classified as a "HID-mouse" IIRC. (Correct me If I'm wrong)

Is this just a claw grip mouse.

It's a diverse shape/size. You can effectively use any method you desire. A lot of palm grippers do like contoured shapes tho.

That mouse looks fantastic.
post #53 of 147
hmmm, I liked the Xai shape but hated the sensor. Is the the "ONE".....

Looks promising. I hope those side buttons aren't glossy.

I might purchase one and paint it. Damn...

Or should I just buy the DA:BE?

Just noticed the sides are higher than the xai, which is great IMO.
post #57 of 147
^Yeah. High rise 1.1-ish. The rest of the shape/design mimics the Xai which mimics a WMO with 1.1 dimensions.

I would assume the lower CPI are a result of a different "focusing pont" of the lens.
3500 CPI register becomes effectively 2300 CPI and 1800 becomes 1150 ("same" ratio).
That would mean the 450 CPI would be a not so simple "interpolation".

My main point is that Avago knows what they are doing and I have a hard time to believe that you can improve one aspect of a sensor with a different lens without negative effects on others.
We will see if the lower CPI are the only negative effect. wink.gif

On the positive side, the smaller magnification might cater to a higher max tracking rate.

On the negative, I've notice that quite a few avago sensors track abnormally with custom lens'. IE: Jitter/cursor skipping. We'll see.

Did they already released the mouse on a market?

As I posted in the other AM thread, I went back and used my EC2 for a bit today and I was impressed by how low the LOD was on it with no other adverse effects on performance. Sure, it doesn't have wonky DPI steps for the sensor it has (Avago 3060) and it also has prediction, but it's one of those rare mice where I cannot get it to skip or reach negative acceleration. It also doesn't jitter. Their lens seems like a solid feature in this mouse.

I like how they say "Other manufacturers have looked for fast solutions, trying to hack the sensor, but this has resulted in instability of the cursor instead." You hear that Coolermaster? Don't sacrifice control speed for lower LOD.
