LOL!!!!

Seriously, who the hell actually laughs out loud as many times as they type it? And what about your post was funny enough to warrant even a chuckle, let alone a full-blown laugh?
Even if youre using your entire arm, it still feels awkward

Same PixArt Sensor as the Pyra.

I love mine too but I really wish I had picked up the laser version. The optical makes small wrist adjustments quite inaccurate.

I already see it in the stores over here, but what the heck. Why would they put the sensor off center on a gaming mouse? There has to be some reason to do this

Imho a off-center sensor in a symmetrical mouse is pretty stupid but the Kova couldn't really convince me anyway.

The G9 sensor isn't perfectly centered either. It's closer to the left side than it is the right. Neither is the MX518's. The G500's sensor is almost nearly at the back end of the mouse - this one's WAY closer to being centered than that one. In fact, I doubt there are many gaming mouses with perfectly centered sensors.

Hmm, okay. Is it the same sensor as Pyra now? Or the same as old Kova? I dunno if I should trust the reviews but the ones about Pyra mentioned some tracking problems. And the old Kova is supposed to have the same sensor as MX518 if I remember correctly, which I trust more

BTW, MX518 sensor definitely seems closer to center:

.. and I don't like the sensor position on those mice either.

Off-center is somewhat annoying, but I can live with it. Sensors located near the top of the mouse like in the G500 throw me WAY out of whack however.

I'm NEVER buying anything from them again. Purchased a Kone when they were just coming out and had to pay about $150 just to get it and it broke within a month.

When I told them of this they wanted me to ship it back for an RMA (which will cost about $30-$40+), I've never had to do this with anything from Logitech or any other company before. They later fixed the problem I had (middle mouse broke) with a revision of the mouse but I still never got mine fixed and plan to buy a logitech g500 soon since my current g5 has held up for quite a while and if it does somehow break logitech at least provides good customer support.

$150 for this mouse? LOL, might as well buy a Mamba. At least they got support in NA. All I have been hearing about these Roccat mouses are that the build quality suck really bad.
