Nice to see Razer wanting to follow the mainstream on sensor positioning. Very important, helps the cursor to actively shift on the screen with just a subtle flick.However, there is some research to indicate that on an individual level, the performance can improve marginally based on user's preference on sensor position. Since there's a lot of community chatter about forward sensor positioning being their more preferred option, we had some motivation to implement it on a mouse.
I say DO IT. Put it all centrally (make it extremely balanced) then see how well the mouse is during frantic gaming sessions.This was also helped by the fact that we wanted to use the more "central" space for the AA battery slot to help with mass centralization, leaving the front half as the most logical position to place the sensor (although it would have been possible to place it right under the battery with some mechanical complexity).
You've got to extend into new territory here by doing what Logitech is scared to do. Just cram as much detail into each design, that helps with operating your input device.
In the end, it should all be about providing a mouse that transcends beyond what's currently available on a Mouse Pad.
