I pre-ordered one, i guess ill give it a shot. My ec2 is great, but i feel like i'm never quite satisfied with a mouse. 1.1 had issues w/ polling rate hz in windows 7 that i honestly hate dealing with each time i reformat, laser + xai = mehhh since i use cloth pads, hate hard surfaces.

Im going to carbon grip the sides of my ec2 next week since the glossy sides are terrible unless i clean them like once a night.

Dpi/sensitivity/mousefix is an entire other headache for me =(( i think im paranoid.
get out of my head

Open a FPS game, set a low sensitivity, then point your cursor at a spot on a wall and move your mouse to the end of your mousepad and back, then try again and keep increasing your speed each time. If your cursor ends up on a different point than it started your mouse is either skipping or has acceleration of some kind.

Nick you said something about photos with the weight totals are these updated pictures of the mouse rather then whats on the puretrak site.

Nick answer about the positive accelration and cpi steps:
the question:

Quote:
1) The little positive accelration that you see in your graphs when checked the a3090 - why didn't you rework/recode the sensor to get ride of it?
I dont want sensor with positive accelration at all when playing, I sure no-one wants, even if you can feel it - its exist.
can you get ride of it now? hardware?
JUST- dont let it be.
Cooler Master has learn thier lesson by thier A3090 with positive accel.

2) The cpi steps - has you already know (I hope) ALOT of old-school / get used player use 400/450cpi, why you still make the mouse with 500cpi? why dont you rework on the SROM?
the same question of 800/900cpi.
the Answer:

Avi,

Thank you for your questions.

When we originally described the positive acceleration, I suppose we didn't fully describe exactly what was recorded. We understand how the community feels and any sort of acceleration which was one of our main drives behind the internal workings of the Valor and the 3090 sensor.

To better clarify, in a more understandable way, the positive acceleration with the ADNS-3090 sensor after our rework comes out to around 0.3-0.5%. To compare, 100% acceleration would be moving your mouse 1 complete inch and having the acceleration carry your movement as if you were moving 2 inches. You typically start to FEEL acceleration anywhere from 5-7% depending on how familiar you are with your movement. The only reason we originally stated there was any positive acceleration was because if we claimed there wasn't, we would be lying .

The DPI steps were chosen simply based on maximum performance. The ADNS-3090 at 400/450dpi proves to be a bit too unstable for our likings, producing quite a bit of positive acceleration that would be too difficult to work out. The steps we are using have proven to be the best performing with little to no side effects and helps cater to everyone's preferences.

I hope this better clarifies things Avi. We have put a lot of time behind the internals of the Valor and are certain that it's looks, performance, and overall feel will satisfy the bulk of the core gaming community .

Does this mouse have some kind of driver/customizer? I'm curious how you set up this mouse.

Hello,

For the time being the Valor will be a plug-n-play, driver-only mouse. We designed the mouse with the ability to release customized software for enhanced editing but we there are no immediate plans for this at the moment.

Oh, wow... that's pretty disappointing. I like control over my exact dpi. Hopefully I can get used to the preselected dpi steps.

So then how does DPI switching take place? Do you have to scroll through all the hardware DPI settings to get to the one you want?

I am not sure what you mean by scroll through all the hardware DPI settings? There are only 4 to choose from. 500, 1000, 2000, and 3500. The illuminated mouse wheel on the Valor will flash according to the speed you will be selecting using the top mounted DPI button. 500 being the slowest flash, 1000 being a little faster, and so on.
