Kinzu or Abyssus? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I lied. I was putting in my inches/180 (9) instead of my inches/360 (22). crisis averted. I know what your thinking. 9x2 !=22, well, I was wrong about that too. I use 11/180, not 9. I guessed wrong.

Edit: I lied

The only thing it really lacks is the lift off comparable to the MLT04/M$ lens, but if we were to compare price to warranty and what not, I guess the WMO is still a much better value if you're comfortable playing at a lower resolution to compensate for perfect pixel accuracy.
The price thing should really even out though as well. I paid $34 shipped for this Abyssus on Amazon, and a WMO runs what, about $15? I would also expect the WMOs to break easily as M$ has reduced the build quality so much in the course of the past years. Not that Razer is the patron saint of high quality gaming products, but I would expect this thing to last longer than a WMO. People stockpile those things because they expect them to break down.

And honestly, the liftoff is not that bad either. It's around the 2CD mark on my QcK and less than that on the Talent.

The only worry I have about this WMO is that eventually the wheel will become free rolling.

Unless they changed it with newer models, the microswitches also develop an annoying double click issue that becomes quite frustrating in and out of game.

my WMO is around 8-9 years old though.

I guess, I mean with amazon you have to pay shipping on orders under $25 and in store there's always tax. I'm actually considering picking up another once since my original one had the jitter bug :[

You're right bout M$ though, I had around 3~ 3.0's in my closest last year and recently sold them all off. All I have left is a broken Respawn and lightly used Legends Editon that I'm keeping.

Thanks for the info guys. I've had WMO's before and they do work great but they have torn up fast on me before.. Either the buttons stopped working or the scroll wheel doesn't work right. Probably gonna get an Abyssus. I can get it at walmart.com for 31 and since i'm an employee at a DC it will knock it down to 28 with free shipping to a store.
