Just comparing the specs without actually testing it. rolleyes.gif

Talking about it's high precision without mentioning or noticing that the 3200 CPI are interpolated (just like the original Kova) also doesn't sound very competent.

How would you go about testing that? Surely the reviewer having tested several mice is in the best position to judge how well the mouse fares. Afterall it's not about the numbers is it? It's about the overall feel of the mouse. Look at how many people still prefer the Microsoft IE 3 just because it feels good to them.

Max. Speed can be easily tested with Enotus Mouse Test allthough it's not that precise but it works for a quick comparison (another method is more precise but more complicated).

Interpolation is noticeable and you can easily test it with Paint for example.

The MLT04 optical sensor has mouse prediction set low/off while being able to hold a mid sens perfect control and malfunction rate of 1.55 and 2.10m/s on cloth.

Paired with a low-mid 4:3 desktop resolution and moderate 25-35cm/360 sensitivity, it's all the performance you really need in a mouse. Of course, it wouldn't really be optimum on a full desktop resolution of 1920x1080 where a lower sensitivity and high perfect control rate would be required for its 400 CPI mouse resolution.

May I ask why?

I honestly don't have any clue on how pixart sensors perform, but the Avago ADNS-3080 in your kova is pretty decent and may even be better than this revision.

Just know a lot about mice. Especially one that I've been using on and off for the past 5 or so years.

Good review there. It seems very cheap for all its features. A proper bargain.
