I will agree and say that the switches on the v2 were awful but the sensei raws aren't too bad and I was hoping they would use switches like those or even something like their rival's which i also believe are ss switches.

I am not super excited for this mouse but I would like to test it and try it out. If it is garbage I wanna know that I can easily return it with little risk.

The Sensei Raw uses omron switches. The Rival uses Steelseries switches and I'm not a fan. They click fine, but they have a very long travel and very little bounce back response. It makes you pay attention to your fingers. If they're heavy on the mouse, the buttons won't reset.

Ohhhhhh didn't know that. I know what you mean about the rival's clicks as well. Very odd feeling but I didn't mind them.

The RAW just feels cheap and uses cheaper components overall. It is lighter, but the scroll wheel was really much worse compared to when I had a vanilla Sensei. I did pick up a rubberized RAW for a short time from Wal-Mart once before promptly returning it to get the MLG edition, which I also promptly returned due to the non-updated 9800 SROM on there, and then settled on the vanilla version for a while until I couldn't take the acceleration anymore.

Pretty much. Their only good product is really their mousepads.

Is this worth getting if only thing preventing you from using V2 is the low max speed and the 'delay' on the buttons?
post #217 of 477
There's no way to know that till it actually comes out. We will have to put it through some tests to see if SS handicapped it.

Rushed testing on a red Hien mid. 500 dpi step not showing up correctly. Also I'm not exactly a low sens player, plenty of people might be able to swipe faster.

Why is people so interested in this mouse if the g100s is cheaper and probably better ?

Thanks for the tests. Those seem like decent PCS speeds for the 3050 so it seems that SS have at least got that part right. How do you find the switches? From what I have read the Rival also uses SS switches but the mouse shell can have a big influence on switch feeling so it would be interesting to hear from someone who has used the Kinzu.

I'm probably going to wait until the Kinzu hits Amazon although I'm half tempted to stick with the G100s because it really is an excellent mouse.
