Sensei has an upgraded micro controller unit (wont make much difference other than having better/faster interpolation) There are other minor benefits to being on a 32 bit arch vs prev 8bit. Release firmware performed a lot nicer than what it is in current state. Later FW added true recalculation of CPI.
Will variate by hardware tolerance, but vSensei also tracked faster speed (IPS) on popular cloth material.

I never thought the mouse was bad either, though mentioned the likelihood of the actual sensor design being weaker (vs 3060+) on the basis of CPI count and hardware design (identical/close to a few 19*19 models). It's not a 3050, but a much improved sensor in regards to precision capabilities.
IPS speed and tracking characteristics were a bit different from what users have experienced with prior designs, hence "iffy" feedback.
The point I wanted to make: I don't believe scaling beyond default matrix automatically voids a mouse from being responsive. Compensating actual CPI count on the other hand.. sure, but there are actual benefits as I've stated above. Just need to find a balance between high and low.
In regards to g100s, I also wanted 1000hz as it does improve smoothness of cursor path.Edited by Skylit - 11/18/13 at 9:45pm
