Except for the puretrack Valor, I've heard no issues with any of the mice on the ADSN A30XX/S3X88 sensor, like the mice listed above.
The ADSN A6X00 and A9X00 series are to be avoided by someone who does low sensitivity, and does not want acceleration.
You could also consider the Phillips Twin Eye sensor mice; they have a high tracking speed and no acceleration. The only issues are that they don't like a lot of cloth mouse pads and that they jitter slightly when you pick them up.
What is wrong with the WMO by the way? I haven't heard of any problems with it other than its low DPI.
I've had two mice with PTE sensors and both had strange characteristics, I can't explain but my accuracy always suffered when using them. They tracked fine on my surface but I could never get them to respond the way I wanted.
I was very happy with my deathadder other than it wearing out quickly, I think you'll find that's often the story, but some people get ones that last much longer than usual, definitely a good mouse. I personally found it to be the most comfortable I have ever used.
I just got a G9x and it's very nice, I'm really happy with it, only problem is I have trouble pressing the on-the-fly sensitivity switch, personally I don't use this as I prefer to sit in one sensitivity in-game, so it's not an issue for me. Key points for me are good tracking, it's light weight, has two adjustable shells (I prefer the wide/smooth one) and is a mid-size mouse, I can palm, claw or finger-tip it.
