I see the 3050 sensor as a really good value low-mid sens gaming sensor, it works really well in certain areas, but step outside of them and there are better sensors. So its a really focused sensor, rather than being really broad like the 9500. Basically it works really well in all areas, but tracking quality is best up to 1000dpi, so if you don't need any more DPI than that, then I doubt anyone would see any major differences when compared with the 9500 or 3090 sensors.
I don't really know if I will put the 3050 sensor into this shell atm, I'm thinking of only putting the 3090 in it. The reason why is because I think I can get a better value shell, which would match the ethos of the 3050 sensor better, and also it allows me to do the 4 different options on the 3090 version, without having too many different variations on the same shell.
popups, the mouse feet I have atm are good, but I am working on some new ones, can't say much about it atm because nothings final, but I think it'll be really nice if I can do it. The mouse will work on a mac, but if you want to change advanced settings then you have to plug it into a windows PC with the drivers, and make the changes there. Then you can plug it back into the mac and it should remember all the settings (I've tested it with another mouse from the same factory which uses exactly the same system).
V4mp1, I have a pic, but its in the prototype packaging which I don't want anyone to see ;D But it looks exactly the same anyway, it just has a logo on it now.
I will open the website for pre-orders when I know for sure what the price will be, I've assumed that after 2 weeks I should know if the beta testers want any big changes, and how it will affect the price, but its just a guess, it might take a little longer (I don't want to rush that stage and miss something). I promise I'll do it as soon as I can, but at first it will have a fairly rough ETA, because the final design will then go to be certified for CE/FCC/USB etc. Once thats coming to an end then I will be able to give an official release date. But if anyone has any ideas or suggestions they think would be good for the pre-order process, feel free to let me know.
