  1. I just submitted the ticket, hoping to get a positive answer...
  2. MM520 Vs Xornet (Shape)

    As a years long Spawn user, someone who had Xornet for several months and now owns a MM520, I agree on most counts. My hand is 18.5x10cm and I've gotten used to wide mouse. MM520 is longer, that's immediately noticeable. It's doesn't bother me, it's not too long, like Mionix Naos 5000 that I had long ago. It now allows people with small hands to palm it comfortably while still being excellent for fingetip, which you couldn't do properly with Xornet/Spawn...it made MM520 more versatile. It's taller than Xornet but in one specific part, on the left side between the thumb and index finger. Your palm actually rests on that part a little...Xornet has a bump which is more centered. If you look at them from behind, MM520 has a more steeper curve from left to right, while on Xornet it's more gradual. What's also more gradual on Xornet is the finger rest for the ring finger, on the right. The part with mouse buttons on the MM520 is narrower than Xornet's, which makes that ridge more pronounced on MM520...it's more "smooth" on Xornet. It does suit me in a way, however, because I had some fatigue with Xornet during long gaming sessions (like 6+ hours), I felt like the my ring finger and pinky were too separated from the rest. So far, no such feeling on MM520, my ring finger don't feel as spread out because of narrowed mouse buttons part. I kinda like the new PBT material on MM520. Feels good, doesn't slip...The coating on all of my Spawns used to peel after a year or so. No such issues on Xornet but I've only been using it for several months. I don't mind the lack of rubber on thumb rest, it doesn't slip, and it's comfortable for me. On contrary, I dislike thumb buttons. They sound loud and weird...I'm yet to get used to the feel, since I'm not using those often. As for rest of the buttons, it's my biggest gripe with MM520. They work fine and they're comfortable but the the click feel is noticeably worse than Xornet, for me. They sound hollow and loud, the right one more so than left one. I don't know if I got the "wrong" specimen or my Xornet was super tight, but I really prefer the ones on Xornet, they were almost the same as those lovely ones on Logitech G203 which were perfect for me. DPI button is ok, but I prefer two wide ones on Xornet than single narrow one on MM520. Scroll wheel is a lot better on MM520. Bigger (or taller) than Xornet's so it's easier to find, much better feel while scrolling, semi-loud, easier to press (but still a lot harder than Mouse 3 on G203)... The cables are good on both, IMO. Relatively thin, smooth, no issues (G203 beats them, though). So far no issues with sensor. I had a problem with Xornet where cursor would sometimes skip and jitter during very slow movements, which made precision stuff like fine skipping in porn videos (hue) annoying. It was happening on both mouse pads I have...I don't know if it's the sensor or something else but it's the main reason I switched from Xornet to MM520. Otherwise, I was pretty satisfied with Xornet... I don't really mind the new shape, but it would be perfect if MM520 was just a fraction smaller with same shape. Or if they just gave the Xornet that sensor and scroll wheel...
