I would look into a Team Scorpion Zealot Jr...it's quite small and light, but still gets you an Avago 3090 sensor.

Could you elaborate further on this imperfect sensor? I have never heard of anything remotely what you are claiming, perhaps a link to backup your claim would shed some light on this subject.

What are your guys opinions on the new Razer Orochi/Krait 2013? Overrated? Afraid to admit it, but I often fall for the gimicky advertising techniques and like all of the flashy things you don't really need. Haha

See here or here or just google around a bit...the Avago 9500 is not a bad sensor, but why settle for a mouse with non-linear tracking when you don't have to?

There's a lot of technical information on the link provided, but can anyone notice a difference in the real world? I have played countless RTS and FPS using this G9 laser mouse and at no time have I ever had any reason to question how great a mouse it is nor has anyone else as far as anyone knows.

Just Google "Logitech G9 Laser Mouse" and you will see the excellent reviews 4.5 - 5.0 start reviews, none that mention anything remotely whether it's non-linear tracking causes an issue. I think you are reading to much into the technology rather than real world performance, however I'm never afraid to admit that I'm wrong and I am I will do so. smile.gif

I game so much that I had to replace the mouse feet on it once, it's been through a lot and the buttons still work flawlessly!

I've been using all types of mice for heavy gaming from FPSes to RTSes for many years. I find that it's not that big of a difference switching between my G500 or SS Diablo III Mouse (when I had it) to my CM Storm Spawn, MX-518 and Deathadder (before it broke). You'd have to be looking for it to notice. Also, the current crop of 3090 equipped mice have their own niggling little faults.

The only laser mouse that gave me a problem was the Logitech G5 with the blue cracked shell on an SS 5L with a pretty cool black and blue design. Because the mouse skipped so much I ended up exchanging that 5L for an all black 5L. Then Logitech later released a new firmware that resolved most of those issues...

Very interesting, my last mouse was a G5 and I had a similar problem! I knew something was up with my mouse but until one day I was cleaning the underside of the G5 and I saw the laser blink off and on with a long pause, I guess that could be a skip or a short circuit. That the last wireless mouse I will ever buy!
