while I think it might be bad to draw any definitive conclusion based on only one tracking surface, that doesn't mean the test is invalid. If a mouse is weak on a particular surface it should be made known for sure. While laser mice have been weaker on cloth pads in the past, it doesn't hurt to keep testing because chances are we'll eventually get the "perfect" laser instead of just assuming things will never get better

How would you know that it favors the mouse without actually testing it first? You can't assume these things without actually testing them. It's just as important to know the surfaces it performs well on as the one's it doesn't.

Why? Because it's obvious that laser sensors perform worse on cloth pads, it's a fact. Although i think they should have tested it on both hard and soft surfaces and compare the results.

Why do lasers perform worse on cloth?

its obvious if the technology doesn't change, however this is a new sensor and needs to be tested

to avoid it is just asinine

Just a heads up, I'm aiming to have the review done by tomorrow. Look forward to lots of tests, hopefully on at least a hard and soft but no guarantees. Right now I'm working on testing to determine when the sensor begins to demonstrate negative acceleration, amongst other things. Rather than start an AMA thread if you guys have questions just PM me, It'll most likely already be in the review but if not I definitely don't mind answering anything specific!

Thanks again for the support, I think you will enjoy the review when its posted =) Oh and big thanks to Skylit and MONVMENTVM for helping me with some specifics!

Here's my video review:
