Question regarding to mamba

Does the mouse have the z axis bug with that driver ? I can live with the vibration of the crosshair if that's the only problem with that driver version.

Which is this the original? The original had no dynamic CPI scaling under a certain driver version but of course will always have the Z axis issue.

Every PTE sensor, regardless of version, has the z-axis bug. Even the new neutered sensor in the TE has it. It's not as noticeable, but still there.

I don't have any clue, I've never tested the mouse and I was always interested in that sensor. That's why I am looking at it.

There was a mouse that didn't have it, called warmouse (I couldn't find much info on that)

Never heard of it. If it was using a standard PTE then it has the bug. They might have been using a work around to get away from it, but Razer has been trying to fix it for years and has failed or made it worse every time.

Their dual sensor system which forced cutoff of the tracking at very low distances helped a lot with it.

... But you'd be forced to use 400 CPI in that case because with slow movements you're gonna get CPI scaling that brings you down to 400 CPI to avoid both Z axis issues further as well as vibration issues.

With the PTE, everything is a bandage for an inherently flawed design. It's too bad because the sensor has zero acceleration and is capable of well over 200 IPS. I can't say I haven't given thought to using a PTE mouse myself as 400 CPI is all I need anyway.

Yes I never paid too much attention to the dpi scaling, but if it works like you say, with 400dpi and the dual sensor the mouse should be great. But the thing it's too damn expensive to risk xD.

Technically you could grab a Mamba 4G, set it to 400 CPI and call it a day. Kind of a heavy mouse though, not that reliable either because it's Razer and the PTE sensor isn't known to be reliable either.
