Puretrak Valor Information Thread - Page 5

post #41 of 1594
what is with you and wiring. out of everything wiring concerns me least. How i choose a mouse:
+/- accel, prediction, malfunction speed(sensor), shape/ergonomics, dpi(i use 400/450), materials used, mouse wheel is decent, watever else it left.

That are the standard switches pretty much everybody uses.

It's totally normal that people (including me) are a little bit sceptical about a new Brand.

Allthough they have the right aproach and no BS Marketing, a good Sensor and nice overall spec must not automatically result in a very good or special mouse, there are many things you can "screw up".

Then I must be the only exception with my Ikari and Xai.

@Skylit

That blog entry was aimed at the Ikari Laser and the guy who wrote it had nothing to do with the Kinzu beside its shape.
That isn't meant as a defence for SteelSeries.

That blog entry speaks the truth. The guys that worked on the kinzu who PASSED it to production with its prediction over 9000 + accel + low malfunction speed and wrote that little herp derp article about its "featured" acceleration need to be removed asap for steelseries sake.

I'm not really sure if Kone V2 has a custom MCU to enable, but the Avago 9500 is nativity prediction free.
Well i would notice acceleration and stuff. If my G500 has acceleration on my boogie bug its very minimal. Im going to try out a Steelseries 9HD soon.

Standard for the primary buttons, but it's my understanding that lesser switches are usually used for the side buttons, which does not appear to be the case here. And I'm skeptical as well, but I'm hopeful that we'll find a real contender in a mouse market crowded with either prediction-having mice, or over-DPI happy ones.

It's true that often enough other switches are used for the thumb and wheel buttons but that doesn't have to be a bad thing, they have their benefits.

Omron Japan D2F-01F would be better anyway.

BTW mate i just wondered what you meant by MCU? Also how does the 6080 and 6090 avago track on hard surfaces?

I never heard of the 6080, do you mean 6010? The 6090 tracks fine with a reasonable perfect control/malfunction.

I wish I knew what this thing looked like. I have to buy a mouse based on looks as well as performance

Sorry mate i meant the 6090. How much prediction do these sensors normally have. Too be honest my best gaming mouse ever was the Roccat kone V2. It seemed to track extremely well for me. I have not had much luck with the avago 9500 sensor except for the roccat kone plus which is actually too heavy for me.

Does the 6090 track best on cloth or hard surfaces?
