Looks like it does have adjustable LOD in the drivers. Weird that the Rival is the only 3310 mouse so far without this feature.

I bought the Rival and regretted it. The LOD on default is way too high for my liking.

Anyone else has the M45 able to comment on the LOD at its lowest setting?

On other boards both the Rival as well as the Naos/Avior 7000 are reported to have noticeable smoothing, so if you are sensitive on that one it's a rather save bet that also the M45 will not be the mouse of your choice.

That being said I personally hardly recognize the issues people brought up in regards of the 4.000 DPI 3090 in the first place and really liked the Avior - however I didn't fell in love with its size and shape, so I will probably give the M45 a try when it's available.

Maybe there is a chance that the M45 is different from other 3310 with 6500dpi. Because it has 5000dpi.
Other lense or other FW? Lower dpi keeps up some kind of hope.

Actually you are correct - or to be precise I was wrong on that one. Most of the times people complain that smoothing and jitter becomes noticeably at higher DPI settings. Fingers crossed that Corsair took a smart decision to keep it at 5.000 dpi max.

Then again if the other 3310 mice are affected noticeably beyond 5.000 dpi only, few people will actually be affected (who is playing with these kind of settings anyway - if you require utmost accuracy you will play at much lower dpi I guess).

PMW3310DH-AWQT is 5000cpi maximum. Spec sheet here. I assume above that it is interpolated steps. The M45 is more their "enthusiast" mouse and they have more expensive models for the ignorant mass market who think laser and higher CPI is better.

Don't know anything about Corsairs build quality but since the mouse is in my wheelhouse when it comes to size and weight I will give it a try!

I love the scroll wheel on the Corsair M40/45. I find that generally the scroll wheel is the weakest part of a mouse and is prone to side wobble. The scroll wheel on the M45 feels so solid with defined steps. Shame the mouse is too long, too wide and too heavy.

Got the M45 today. A first note: The sensor is not centered horizontally like seen on most pictures (even on the packaging, probably all showing the M40 instead) but positioned rougly 1 cm to the left hand side. The hole also is lateral aligned instead of vertical (see here: http://youtu.be/qujEkKPGwn0?t=38s).

Personally I never got the buzz about off center sensors but I am aware that there are quiet some people out there that have it on their no-go list, so I want to share that information before you guys order it.

Why did mouse companies switch to laser mice anyway? What was supposed to be the advantage of it over optical mice? Also, why are laser mice generally more expensive?

My best guess about the price is marketing. The advantage is a lot of customizability, and LOD could be lower as well. But really, the 3310 mitigates both of those issues...

No one on earth needs more than 1800 CPI.
