post #31 of 1594
TBH. This mouse doesnt interest me. From the pic I can guess there is going to be little wrist support. Which I dont like as a palm grip gamer. Im def not get this mouse due to dpi, wheel, and unknown/unexperienced brand. A good sensor alone will not fix a mouse's problems.

For an "uninexperienced brand", they're doing a lot better than steelseries as far as introducing a mouse.

what they need is a steelseries Xai with an Avago 3090. If they have a survey like puretrak are having, we should all suggest this ^

Good sensor, good switches across the board, less marketing BS more specs...this sounds like a pretty damn good first foray into the mouse market. I'll admit I'm not a big fan of its shape either, but this is a damn good start from what I can see. Hopefully they make as much of a splash here as Corsair did when it entered the PSU market.

steelseries gave gamer what they wanted. no glossy sides, ergonomic in a way, and top of the line sensor sort of.

what cracks me up the most is razer's motto "for gamer, by gamers". Its so much bs, they hardly sponsor any good events or teams. They do seem to asking our input or listen to our input hence glossy sides. There still is some hope because of the black widow and the da black edition. However steelseries has been consistent on quality mousepads, headsets, and some what on the mice.

I would never say that steelseries has quality stuff imo. Their pads don't' seem that bad, but everyone that's used a steelseries mice has had cable issues the same goes for the headsets nor do they sound that good. The 6gv2 keys are rather cheap and do break easily. I've tried to use the WoW mouse but it felt so so cheap that some cheap stuff i've ordered from china felt better built. I've never heard of anything but issues with steelseries.

Ive never had anything but trouble with Razer. And I just dont like Logitech. SS's headset are decent for the 100 headset range ofc my ad700 > any headset but still i feel ss leads with headsets. This is the first time hearing of cable issues on ss mice. im using the xai atm np. i can say from exp that the qck is solid. ive used it for years and it still standing and so have many ppl including like 90% of pros not that i would copy what they buy ever.

And yet, steelseries is allowed to market and have professional gamers promote the kinzu as a superior gaming mouse? Give me a break, that sensor has every problem in the book besides a high lift off distance. I guess you can say that it makes the PTE look somewhat good regardless of the Z axis issues.

http://faq.steelseries.com/questions...cceleration%3F

This is a joke, right?

Also, this article from their blog seems to contradict half of their mice..

Quote:
Feature: Prediction and correction of movement. Let’s say you’re trying to make a horizontal movement. Of course your hand isn’t 100% steady, so your line will have slight diversions and wouldn’t be completely straight. Back in the day, the manufacturers of mouse sensors decided to include a feature in the optical sensors of their mice, that would help people draw straight lines. It would “remove†the small diversions, if the diversion was less than a certain angle and instead just draw a perfectly straight line. The funny thing is: This feature has never been marketed, though it has been in countless mice over the past years. Can you guess why?
Problem: Prediction cost you precision. Period. If your mouse is trying to predict your movements, instead of just performing the movements you are actually doing, your precision is obviously degraded. If you want to make a movement that is almost, but not quite, a straight line (meaning you want to move a bit up and like half a screen to the right for example) then your movement will be altered. This function of sensors kicks in pretty fast and the worst part: in most sensors you can’t even disable it.

Last thing.

Steesleries only offers a 1 year warranty to NA. Now, I know that technically isn't really a "problem", but when you're selling mice at $90 bucks a pop and your competitors are offering warranties up to 3 years on mice half the price, It's kinda hard to support a company that won't go the extra mile :\\


As for Razer, they're simply just there to market and make money. If the mouse has 5000+ DPI, Lights up and has decent egro, it's going to sell. period. Now, I personally don't care for that, but they seem to be getting better and are actually attempting to make decent products. Oh and Razer WILL sponsor teams, but they require you to actually go out and buy their gear.

I don't know whats worse, being paid off to use a product, or sucking up to get sponsorship lol
