roccat savu
RAT 3 (I'm not so sure about that one)
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.

I had a RAT 7 for a while, and it had this problem where it would randomly stop responding for a second every few minutes.

I found that my deathadder was very durable; I hate the shape, though.

Yeah same, but it was rare, my biggest issue was it just made me inaccurate, can't explain why, I couldn't put my crosshair on a head to save my life.

That's surprising; I found that it was like my deathadder but smoother at high DPIs.
I had to return it because the sudden loss of control issues were making it impossible to play games.

I use a WMO at work and got the Zowie AM yesterday.

My first day/first game time of MW2 with it I recorded my best ever score with a sniper rifle. 30 and 1 entirely quickscoping. Video here

It's a very easy adjustment between the two I would recommend it.

If you're good with WMO, stick to ambidextrous mice

I used the G400 for two months and I subconsciously went from fingertip grip to palm/claw and it lowered my accuracy considerably. It's just too long to fingertip grip

I've found that it works fine for fingertip grip, but that is probably because I have large hands.

If you are a low sensitivity player that uses the mouse at 400-900 DPI, buy the DeathAdder 2013.
I have been able to make any of the other optical mice on the market malfunction at 400 DPI, no matter what the polling rate or surface is. (any of the 3090 mice, and Razer's 3888 sensor)

With the DeathAdder 2013, I am unable to make the mouse malfunction at all - even when testing on a bad surface for optical mice that considerably lowers the speed required to make them malfunction.

It does mean you have to use Synapse, because there aren't any legacy drivers, but it's a worthwhile trade-off in my opinion. (I just blocked Synapse's internet access via my firewall)

The DA 2013 is a phillips twin eye sensor, as far as I know, and those have some issues with many cloth mouse pads. The ADSN 3090/3888 sensor is better at low sensitivities.
