I was thinking of a totally different job profile. Kimrom is also a hardware rep and look how well that turned out, if you know what i mean.

Elitist of me to say, but it holds true in this industry.

In terms of shell design, I'd say Steelseries has done well compared to many other companies and much of that is probably attributed directly from professional gamer feedback. That's not to say there aren't companies who can just as great a job on their own either (see Logitech). When it comes to internals, we all want a mouse that just works well no matter how we move it or on what surface. A pro gamer isn't to blame when a mouse has poor reliability / technical performance... that's just bad engineering and making sacrifices to squeeze out potentially more profit without realizing the demands of the market. I think people tend to have a misunderstanding between the word 'feedback' and 'knowing much about mice'. Feedback is great so long as it is filtered and applied where it is most noticed by a specific niche of players. I'd love to hear some examples where you think a pro gamer has or likely could screw up a mouse because of their own feedback.

Implying that the tooling or shell design is actually the result of "pro gamer" feedback.. wink.gif

I doubt that has even occurred (aside from personal recommendations that I actually regret giving to SS). IE: tracking speed (IPS) vs cursor quality at higher steps. Pros/cons and gamer preferences to each call.

Internal and external decisions are carried out by the business at hand. If a company is aiming for a specific profit margin or criteria, the minor non-flashy things will be ignored.

Of course thats not to say that every company has the same views.

I would be happy with an updated G9z with a good Avago A9999 perfecto laser sensor (centered). Price it at $90 with more lights so they can make high profit margins.

Optical is good but laser is the future tech which need more refinement. Hopefully they can perfect it. With ultra high DPI resolution monitors coming out soon, laser tech will basically be the one of the only viable options in the recent future.

I want to see a mash up between the G400v2 and the g500. take the G500 body, remove the weight system and place the G400v2 sensor in the center where it should be. Keep the 3 G500 side buttons, Keep the side to side scroll wheel and hyper scroll button. keep the DPI adjust buttons, but add a small button like the G400 above the wheel and below the wheel(inbetween wheel and hyperscool on off button). last of the major change's would be the left and right click sensors, they are junk in the G500...could use ANY of the other clicker switch's.. ohh and ditch the G500 cord for the G400 cord. and paint it all solid black with blue LED's on the display. I would pay $100 for this mouse in a second. It would be my perfect mousey. lulz biggrin.gif
