A few questions about various sensors...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
1: People frequently talk about "sensor implementation" when talking about mice. What exactly do they mean? I frequently hear that the sensor implementation can heavily change someones perception of a mouse and that's kinda confusing me.

2: I'm about to write a guide so that people know which mouse to buy for a specific rhythm game called osu (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HjUco9KTaM, ignore the horrible music) but I'm kinda unsure what low-budget-sensor I should recommend in mice. The A9500/A9800 unfortunately have pretty bad acceleration so I'm thinking of recommending mice using the A3090-sensor. Apparently that sensor is flawless but I've once heard that depending on the SROM-version used it can have pretty bad Angle Snapping. Is that true? If yes, which cheaper mice with the A3090-sensor are recommendable?

EDIT: If there is another sensor low-budget-sensor that you could recommend, I'd be happy to hear your recommendations.

By the way, if anyone has a handy list with a few good mice it'd be nice if you could copy it here so that I don't miss any in my guide. thumb.gif

AM010 in G100s.

And no, 3090 isn't flawless, not by a long shot.

All you need in that osu guide is a mouse which ever fits the user, as in shape. I use M1 for osu so a decent not stiff shell is also needed, but since most use keyboard anyways it's kinda pointless too. Rest, at least for osu, is irrelevant. I played with 90 cent chinese mouse with A5050 which has 0.8m/s malfunction speed and 125hz polling just fine.

3090's were affordable but their implementations vary wildly. People were using 'tape fix' to correct for LOD and tracking issues. Manufacturers started using different illumination, retracted the sensor further up into the shell, and started putting clear shims inside the sensor well to replicate 'tape fix'.

The Zowie Evo was garbage, but the EVO CL was all fixed smile.gif. CM Storm Alcor is another good 3090. They both have shims in the well, but the designs are different.

Edit: And OSU destroys my brain. It would be more popular if it didn't have all the anime plaster.

I think you should include this line in your guide:

"I have no clue about budget mice but i recommend these:"
