And even before this RGB craze there were countless mice without rgb leds that sucked. I personally hate flashy stuff but as long as it's good I don't care.

The real problem leds pose is additional weight from light-conducting elements and whatnot. It actually might be the reason why EMP is so heavy.

Got my EMP yesterday. I'm a little new to the whole mouse sensor/weight game but I have been trying lots of mice recently and have tried some 3310, and 3360/66 mice such as the DA Elite & Chroma, Nixus Revel, G900, G403 and KPM. My hands are 18CM and I palm grip. For my hand and grip style the EMP is great but based on where my fingers hit the groves and buttons I wouldn't think you would want any smaller than an 18CM hand for it. As far as the whole weight vs accuracy debate I don't really see any issues with the EMP. You can tell it's a tad heavier than the other mice but I didn't see any decrease in my aiming accuracy in Overwatch and my accuracy % in game matches other 3360/66 mice I have tried. My accuracy seems the same with Everything except the DAE and DAC where I saw a drop of about 10% across the board. So yes it might be a tad heavy but I don't think it personally affects me. It will be my new daily driver until the 2017 pure comes out and I can give that one a try. I find it peculiar that my accuracy is just as good with the KPM that has a 3310 as it is with any 3360/66 sensor mouse. I wonder if the small size & weight plus the ease of manipulation due to the shape of the KPM make up for the inferior sensor, however that would be counter intuitive based on the fact that the size and weight of the EMP don't negatively affect my aim.

If I don't care about the wireless feature, is the Logitech G900 a better pick over Kone EMP or a totally different beast? They both have top-of-the-line sensors, similar number of buttons, different grip style (not quite sure which one I'd prefer, I don't have a set shape that I like--I tend to adapt to my current mouse and then see if its design works out or me in practice). Other than the wireless feature adding to the price, is the G900 worth 2x the price of Kone EMP?
