Do you honestly think that the way he was weighing it would add 27g? Most of the cable was on the table and purenick stated that the full cable weight is 31g

I wanted to test this theory of his with my 1600DPI MX518, it has a similar cord to the valor. I stacked a couple blu-ray boxes up an inch away from my scale which was the exact height as the scale. I coiled up the cord and set the cord on the blu-ray boxes and then set the mouse on the scale so there was little to no weight added from the cord. This should have the same effect as cutting the cord without actually cutting the cord and ruining the mouse.

With the blu-ray boxes supporting the cable = 102g

With the excess cable laying on the desk with a few inches of cable hanging, just like Ramla777's youtube video = 105g


An extra 3g.... Doesn't add up. There's no way the cord hanging off the scale is adding that much weight.

All the waiting just to receive a falsely advertised and grossly defective product

At least it has a nice feel in the hand. I can hold it in my lap and stroke my puretrak talent (which is phenomenal) while i watch netflix

it will also make a wonderful paper-weight considering it's 40g heavier than initially expected.

Maybe the decision to coat the entire mouse with rubber caused the extra weight? I tried asking wayyyy back but Purenick ignored my question.

He did not, he said that the rubber did add less than 1 gr I believe.

Btw. The weights are supposed to be 5 gramms each I think. This guy weighs one and his scale shows 6.6gr. If his scale is off by 20% and the hole mouse weighs 100gr on his scale, then 80gr are still a possibility.

Just saying.

Official weights for the PureTrak Valor:

Total mouse weight, including packaging and all weights within: 264g
Total mouse weight, excluding packaging, weights within: 118g
Total mouse weight, excluding packaging, weights excluded: 83g
Total mouse weight, excluding packaging, weights excluded, cable excluded: 74g

These are now the official, verified weights of the Valor.
Ok 118g-83g=35g there are 7 weights so each one is 5g

In the video("http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJ-wyrGtnZc") he said "the weights range from 6.6-6.8g" -at average it would be 6.7g, this is 34% more than official 5g.

Let's add 34% to official, mouse weight: 74g+34%*74g=99.16g
In the video its 101.4g so it's pretty close and it might be due to rubber coating.

So I assume that his measurement was not accurate because it adds approx 35% to the real weight
