I will always get 420cpi in mousetester at the 500 step on the Talon Blu. This is why it's the best 3050 mouse.

Open paypal dispute.

BTW they've been using that moving warehouse line for the last 2 years.

Don't worry, Paypal will sort it for you helpinghand.gif .

I'm still tempted to get this mouse and I'm not sure why. Maybe I'll just run it at 500dpi and put the windows sensitivity up a notch and see how that goes. 90g is a pretty good weight for me

For what it's worth (literally, I suppose) it's a solid mouse. It's not horrible/unusable imo but obviously we here have been exposed to superior tracking from other products both past and present. I'd say give it a shot, shape-wise it's near perfect. I still find myself using it here and there, it just lacks true daily driver potential.

Honestly, the biggest flaw of this mouse is what it could have been (aka potential). It's obvious that SS pushed this out as the "new Kinzu/Kana", especially considering the failure that was the v3. It was doomed from the start being in the "budget mouse" category to begin with. We expected/wanted an "ambi Rival" with everything internal being virtually 1:1 and we got a "Rival Jr." which is still a nifty little mouse, not a bad one to have in the collection.

In short: Sure, try it. Awesome shape, somewhat surprisingly good build quality and grips. Just don't expect tracking heaven from the sensor.

if a new mouse were released with a new sensor based on mlt04, but suppose no one knew that it's based on mlt04, and it could do 400/800/1600dpi, with significant jitter at 800 and 1600dpi, would people criticize it the way the rival100 is criticized? rolleyes.gif

If it's still locked at 125hz OR if it has less than 3 m/s....yes it would be bashed.
