This caught my interest, so I asked a few questions..

Quote
- I'm interested in this mouse and have a few question.
FYI.. 2012 and later Razer mice can answer yes to all of these question. The problem is that I'm not a Razer fan.

 1. Can I assign macros to ANY button (specifically the left button)?
 - Some vendors only allow left/right click for the left/right buttons
 2. Are ALL profiles stored on the mouse's internal memory?
 - Some vendors only store a single profile on the mouse
 3. Can I assign a button to switch between profiles?
 - Some vendors store multiple profiles on the mouse, but no way to switch between them other than using the software
 4. Does the macro manager have a "repeat while pressed" option?
 - Some vendors have this, but not all


Their reply..

To answer your questions:
1. You can assign macros to all buttons except the scroll wheel.
2. No, only one profile is stored on the mouse at a time (you can assign a game/program to a profile so it automatically switches, but the software needs to be installed)
3 & 4. Not at the moment, maybe in a future software update Sorry its not all positive, the macro control on the Aurora is fairly basic. Thanks Bst

Looks bad
That "natural curve" you [roads] are talking about was me taking a wild guess what the game was doing (which was completely wrong of course).

😂😂😭

Interesting you should say that - why do you feel it's not a good sensor? I've used the avago ADNS 3090 in my zowie FK for several months and I love it. It's got a great LOD too. There's rumors that the lower dpi settings has a delay but playing quake daily for 6-10 hours at 120hz/250fps with the mouse set to 1000hz produced no noticeable delay. So far it's only been rumors.

Here's about 10 well respected mice using the sensor:
Mad Catz R.A.T. 3 (halfway through 2012 production replaced sensor with avago adns 3090)
Zowie ec1/ec2 'eVo' & 'eVo CL', 'AM', 'FK'
Steelseries Kana V2
Cooler Master Storm 'Spawn', 'Alcor'
Roccat 'Kone Pure Optical'

In my research the 3090 is picky about surfaces, has LOD issues, and has tracking issues at non optimal report rates.

Basically everything in the environment has to be perfect for the sensor to perform.  The 3310 has none of those issues.

What kind of LOD issues did you find? I think it would depend on how far the sensor is embedded into the mouse. So that would be a mouse-model problem, not a sensor problem, correct?

I don't like my mice tracking any movement unless the entire thing is on the mousepad anyway =P

3090 typically has a high LOD, not really a big deal for me but some people hate it.
Zowie mitigated the high lod with their custom lens. Hence why all their 3090 mice have ridiculously low LOD.

You could do the tape trick too which lowers the LOD.

Personally I've found the 3090 sensors in general to be fine, it's not perfect though. Still 10x better than a laser sensor for precision in pc gaming.

I had the EC2 I think it was, and the sensor wouldn't let me flick shot on black cloth mouse pads.. (*it optical right LOL!?*).

But the EC2 did feel like an aim bot for the most part, its was extremely hard to miss with that mouse. Just a shame I couldn't turn quickly or flick shot with it.
