Hello Valor purchasers,

Firstly, we would like to greatly apologize for the delay/lack of updates regarding pre-ordering of the Valor and its shipping status. We understand there are many of you who are anxiously waiting and we greatly appreciate your patience. As the delays we are experiencing are unforeseen, we wanted to provide you with complete and accurate information rather than scattered or incomplete details regarding your order’s status.

To further clarify, the EARLIEST estimated ship date which we provided was May 15th with the latest ship date being May 31st. These dates were drawn up based on several factors which included logistics (shipping) and federal certifications in several countries that vary in time. As we stated before, the total estimated time frame was between 5/15 & 5/31.

Our primary shipment for the Valor has been delayed due to unforeseen nature issues resulting from the extreme flooding throughout the Mississippi river; a primary logistics channel for overseas shipments to the Midwest. Original estimates allowed us to pin point the arrival date within 24 to 48 hours however due to the sheer magnitude of this natural disaster, we are gauging that the primary shipment will arrive and be cleared within the first week of June. We have been 100% assured by our logistics partner that our shipment will surpass and clear the delays by this time.

To further ensure we avoid any additional delay, we have arranged for a small emergency batch to be manufactured and sent directly to our office via express air shipping in the event the primary shipment surpasses our original estimation date.

Furthermore, we will be making it a point to update our customer base and community outlets every 48 hours with direct information on the current status of the Valor release. These updates can be found via our website (http://www.puretrak.com/) , Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/puretrak/), twitter (http://www.twitter.com/puretrak/) and via email message (email messages will only contain major updates to prevent spam).

We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding. We assure you that it will be well worth the wait and your patience will not go overlooked. If you have any further questions, comments, or concerns regarding your pre-order and it’s status, please do not hesitate to ask via any of the various forms of contacts we have available.

The Avago ADNS-3090 is pretty much a rebranded and updated ADNS-S3888 with an added 5G acceleration (total of 20G). Unlike the DA's sensor, this one will most likely be updated for the first few months based on any major problem reported.

In terms of consistency, the 3060/3080 are already superior to the 9500 on cloth, but at the cost of mouse correction/prediction. The 9500 has both a higher control and malfunction rate on hard surfaces, but does produce some minor acceleration which may be noticeable to the end user.

sound great, but I think that the 4 ways for scrolliong will make my Blood Pressure go high. wink.gif

hope for non-glossy sides.

I think the mouse-feet will be great - puretrak known to be one of the most high quality feet replacement products. smile.gif

costum lens is pretty useless I think, the default LoD of the 3090 is pretty low for reguler/gaming optical sensor, no?
but its good plus, for me - laser fan. biggrin.gif
ergonomic shape with sweat-proof sheel - GREAT plus for me, really.

CANT FU**ing WAIT!
50-60$ mouse! OMG!
(this is a dream, yup?)

sorry for double posting, but to the guys that want to know how much weight:
"Hey guys! Nick here. We have seen quite a few emails regarding the weight of the mouse so I would like to clear that up on facebook first.

As a correction to the above posted weight of 230g for the mouse, the actual weight numbers of the mouse is below:

Cable/Weights Included: 165g
Cable/Weights Removed: 75g

The original weight above was posted by a staff member that was looking at the total package weight (this is the total weight of the retail pack and it's contents)."

This mouse looks very good. After going so long with razer/SS/Logitech mice sporting defective laser sensors I thought there was no hope. Then BAM the CM storm spawn and the puretrak mice are here to save the day with good sensors, low weight and low liftoff distances.

@ Skylit, the sensor position is nearly dead center to the mouse. The weight system will be towards the rear which will make this a bottom heavy mouse (when weights are in use). The mouse is completely center balanced when no weights are i......n use.

The durability of the scroll wheel will exceed industry standards even for gaming. We are using high grade encoders from Soundwell.

The Philips Twin Eye sensor was on our original consideration list and was actually fitted to a demo model we were playing with originally however during our testing we came across several alarming issues that we knew would drive our core gaming customers nuts. I'm not saying it's a bad sensor by any means as it does have a good feel to it, but the ADNS-3090 is quite possibly the best sensor on the market for our customer base. Great movement, practically zero acceleration, and a setting to remove prediction. It's also very friendly for updating and overall SROM designing. The only issue really is that the lift-off distance is a little high for an optical sensor but this was corrected with the design of our lens.

The DPI has not been 100% set yet hence the broad spectrum of feedback we're still looking to gather up to the point of final production. The original plan was to have the DPI settings @ 500/1200/1800/3500 but we settled on the 800/1200/2400/3500 because it's a steadier increase between each setting. You bring up a very good point and we will be sure to discuss this further with our players. It would be very easy for us to change the first 800dpi setting to a 500dpi. Thank you.

Ironically my last question to him about the mouse was about the sensor position. Most other companies think the weight system is more important than the sensor position and think its okay to put the sensor in a stupid place to make room for teh uber weightz. Glad to hear its somewhat near the center.



But practically zero acceleration? PRACTICALLY? sozo.gif

It's an LED based Avago sensor, relax!
