Looking for a mouse with PTE sensor + fitting mouse pad

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Edited to make the question more clear:

What are the better mice with the PTE sensor? In terms of build quality/durability.

I am look at Imperator as I liked the shape but seems that people are not quite fond of it. What are the other choices with this sensor?

I am also looking for a mousepad that is good for PTE sensor.
Original Post (Click to show)
I already have G500 and Savu using Avago A9500 and A3090 sensors. Now I am thinking to get a mouse with PTE sensor just to have a different taste. I don't like the RAT series. I kinda like Imperator but it seems there are some issues with that mouse. Shape is not so important (ergo or ambidextrous), but I prefer lighter weight.

1. What's your grip style?

Fingergrip and Clawpaw

2. What's your sensitivity?

around 1600DPI

3. What's your maximum budget?

US$100

4. Do you want additional buttons?

Yes, at least two side buttons

5. What games do you play?

LOL

6. Do you mind about prediction?

Yes.

Mousepad:

I have QcK mini, Hien and Shiden Kai. I want an affordable hard, small, smooth mosuepad for use with the PTE sensor. If the pad can reduce the LOD of the mouse then why not.

Thanks! biggrin.gif

Pretty much all of Razer's laser mice use the PTE, have a browse through their store.

Imperator is actually one of the PTE mouse I'm looking at, but I'm also a bit worried about the build quality and durability of Razer mice in general (DA excepted). It'd be great if I can have a run through of more common mice with PTE biggrin.gif

Also some older Razer mice like Lachesis and Orochi use the older generation of PTE sensors. I would prefer the newer gen, unless someone can tell me the advantage of the older gen PTE sensor.

P.S. It seems R.A.T. series also use the PTE sensor, as is CM Storm Sentinel Advance.

Any other choices? rolleyes.gif

P.P.S. It seems some razer mice has built in "dynamic DPI scaling" which is some nasty acceleration "feature" and cannot be disabled. I would avoid it.

RAT would be your best bet if you are looking for a solid PTE mouse.

For the pad I suggest a hard pad. The Propus 380, 9HD or the scarab should work well. Laser sensor are not really picky about the surface (well, less than optical). AFAIK anything but black cloth should work well.
