That's kind of exaggerated i think, does anybody actually wrist pivot like that when using low sens? I explicitly try not to do it much at all, but he's turning the mouse like 45deg+. That looks like it would kill your wrists and also not take advantage of much of the lower arm for accuracy.

That said, i think sensor position is extremely extremely important and a little of my research in the last few days has helped my accuracy a lot, particularly when somewhat fatigued and i would grip the mouse further back and be confused as to losing accuracy and mouse behaving weirdly, which i now know is from the change in sensor position (being too far forward)

I have both. I prefer the Mizar's switches, size and weight over the Rival but the 3310 is definitely superior over the 9800.

I would recommend the Rival over the Mizar though, because the Mizar is plagued with software bugs which have yet to be fixed despite my constant complains to CM Storm.

I couldn't get both the firmware updater and the main software that tweaks dpi, polling rate, lighting, etc. to work, though it seems to only affect win8/8.1 users.

Alcor mouse feet are smaller than IME 3.0 mouse feet.
post #105 of 180
The LED is really too damn bright on the Alcor. Other than that, it seems OK as a mouse. Haven't encountered any other major issues with it yet. But the fact that the LED can not be turned off or even dimmed and the support claims "This is just how the mouse is designed and there is nothing wrong with the LED from the mouse. " regarding the brightness issue, based on pictures they asked me to send of it, is really annoying. The thing is brighter than my monitor and is really distracting. Had to tape it for now, until I get a marker.

Hmm don't know if it's a fake one.. I guess those were the ones End0rphine was talking about, but not sure.
Once again CM failed on size.. I had the chance to go to a local store to try an alcor, and it's too small for my hand (and i consider to have small to medium hands)..
I don't know what are the hand sizes from people who design mices from CM, but for me it's clear they do mice for small handed people...
