Mouse from Steelseries - Rival 100 - Page 96

post #951 of 1498
I guess it's most likely because high frequencies have a lot of noncontinuous instruments e.g. hi-hats and similar stuff which is impossible to compress properly.

I was referring more to the frequency masking though, but I am very fortunate that I am totally fine with 320kbps mp3s biggrin.gif

Oh yeah and those Shures are very good headphones for their price. I really don't understand why people buy gamer headsets instead of buying a good pair of headphones+stand alone mic/modmic.

Does anyone want to see mousecomparator pics from Rival 100 vs other mice?

Back to the Rival 100:

I don't see why they raised the plastic around the sensor...constantly drags on my gtf-x..

With Avago you could buy the sample/dev/design kits from a distributor like DigiKey or from Avago. I don't remember the price -- I think the price for the sample kit was about $200-300.

It appears you have to contact PixArt sales directly to acquire a sample kit. I think you get the data sheet, SROM, lens, sensor, etc.

Hmm, didn't digikey etc sell Avago sensors for a few bucks? The A3090 datasheet is public and you could download the SROM from Avago's site. And yup, you have to contact Pixart directly for a sample kit. What's up with those prices? A lot of ic manufacturers give out samples for free.

Answered to qsxcv in PM.

The Avago designer kit actually gave you a functional mouse, a dongle and a set of 5 extra components. Of course you got docs on how to produce a mouse. Do other companies give this out for free?

BST, and others, didn't buy a designer kit. They contacted the ODM for a sample. Getting an ODM sample can be tricky. I heard some people got a free sample and paid shipping. Others have to show they are future customers that will put in a minimum order.

No but that's not generally what I would ask for when asking for sample kits. That's basically a development board. I just need the sensor, lens, datasheet and SROM.

I know there is at least a sample kit and a design kit.

I think the design kit is better for someone trying to learn everything about making a mouse. The sample kit would require you to have a donor mouse (which may not be to spec).

Well now after almost 2 days with the mouse i can say that in terms of perfomance it is actually much better than the good old mx518 (it feels snappier,raw,more precise...) Its a great mouse for the money. and the quality is really good. I'm still waiting now for Zowie FK2 to arrive and compare all 3 smile.gif
