ordered an abyssus from ebay - received it - fake (quite good fake, might i add). adns-5050 inside, noname buttons, scroll wheel actually better than the original:), IR diode, identical shape...

so i need to order some mouse again, now i'm taking a peek at the g100 also, and can't make up my mind. me likey likey g100 shape more than abyssus, but i'm scared what will performance be like. i am basically looking for first hand inputs from logitech g100 owners on it's performance, in comparison to abyssus (if possible).

I got one too. Scroll wheel was worse though (opinion).

Quite easy to tell a fake without even opening, though, I wanted to see what they did internally. Heres what I wrote for another member.
Quote:
PCB is very cheap. Basic FR2 with hand soldered points.
No screws holding the PCB down, relies on platic points on top of ID. Cost cutting ^^
Sensor is an Avago 5050 model which is quite common in faked mice.
Micrcontroller is an unmarked unit.
Lens is fake. or more or less not the Avago model that's suppose to be paired with this sensor.
Encoder is very cheap, Rubber around wheel is a dead give away that the abyssus is fake.
125hz > 1000hz toggle switch on bottom. Mouse "reboots" in driver when switching positions (Another dead give away)
1000hz mode peaks @ 500~ max. < Points to weak controller.
Driver loads, but doesn't function with mouse.
DPI steps are all wrong. I don't even think they work properly.
I didn't even test the mouse^^

nothing much to test:) i figured out it was fake the moment i plug it in, malfunctiones at 1,5m/s. i find it funny that they took the effort of putting an IR LED. what was the point of that?

anyways, back on topic, how does g100 sensor fare out comparing to abyssus?

I didn't care for it. Poor firmware/hardware implementation on an already week sensor.

Abyssus is better even if it jitters on certain 45 deg angles via specifc pad.

Non gaming oriented Avago model.

As expected, it was a fake.

I have to say, the Abyssus shape is very comfortable though, and while I hate the look of the mirror finish, it feels great. (if only I could get that in white) I actually prefer that this mouse has so few buttons, and wish it only had three, without the wheel. It allows you to rest your hand on the mouse, rather than hover over buttons.
