First, let’s talk about the sense of press, Cougar 230M is equipped with Omron Switch for softness and bouncing pretty good, do not need to use too much force. When Dota 2 Reborn test with one of the game Esports most popular, Cougar 230M not encounter any problems of operations spam click, last hit, deny.
Go deeper into the eye sensor PAW-3307, its predecessor was the PAW-3305 has become famous on Steelseries Kinzu V2 and Steelseries Kana V1. The advantage of this sensor eye is high stability and handling small details very well. Also for this reason that many gamers still favor Steelseries Kinzu V2 rather than Steelseries Kinzu V3 about performance. However, during the test with the game CS: GO (Counter Strike Global Offensive), I realized a fundamental error of this type of eye sensor, which is quite a picky pad, for optimal, you should use Its black pad, typically Steelseries Qck line gives absolute precision.
Lift-Off-Distance (LOD) and autocorrection is also two criteria that discerning players are interested, however, this issue has nothing on Cougar serious 230M with LOD is 1.5mm with autocorrection negligible. When test accuracy Exotus Mousetest software, the end result exactly what they predicted on PAW-3307 Sensor: accuracy up to 99% but only reach a maximum speed of less than 2m / s – the equivalent of 70 IPS (inches-per-second) – this is also the inherent characteristics of this sensor eye.
Previously, there was a used gaming mouse sensor types PAW-3305 eyes, but completely overcome the phenomenon of low-IPS, which is Sharkoon Fireglider Optical technology with the introduction of Infrare LED (infrared), instead optical LED (light-optical). The fact the majority of gamers are just at ~ 2-2.5m / s (70-100IPS) is sufficient to apply the demands of their war games, even those who are hard core FPS should be able to ~ 3 -4m / s (120-160IPS) on higher-end mouse.
