  1. And by flaw I mean unremovable prediction (aka angle-snapping, drift control) or acceleration, or z-axis bug, or whatever else is fucked up for a gaming mouse in my opinion.
  2.  
  3. I'd like to make a list of these OK gaming mouses, care to help ?
  4. So far the list is :

(Beware : the older firmwares create a jittering issue ; as Abyssus firmware can't be updated, you have to buy a recent enough model, loaded with one of the newer firmwares which fix the jittering)
