which makes it even funnier, because "responsive" has been misused many a times as well. (3988 and 3310 most responsive sensors! especially this one with the good implementation!)
edit: haha, mcu smoothing
but raw and snappy should more or less mean the same thing in this context anyway, so imo they're all on the same street when it comes to misused.. terms
for some, i guess raw could mean 1:1 movement (low jitter), rather than responsive?
pretty sure most guys using these terms are talking out of their something anyway. in 99% of the cases it's probably just the shape, weight and feet that makes them control the mouse well. yes yes, very responsive sensor dude..
snappy is maybe a word better used for buttons or switches or something, or for snapping turtles.
raw should probably not be used at all
good talk dude
