Alcor

The Alcor is almost identical to the Mizar in ergonomic terms. A right-handed mouse it follows proven design ideas with soft curves and well placed buttons giving a familiar feel.

It would be too much to describe the Alcor as squat, but it is compact with a reasonable hump to fit snugly into your palm. As a right-handed offering the right hand side is devoid of buttons but the front and back buttons on the left are well placed and you easily find them under your thumb.

The cable is plain coated plastic number with a gold-plated USB connector. It's amusing that gold-plating has become such a normal part of an input device that it's not even mentioned in the literature these days, whereas when it first appeared it was considered the killer feature.

The Alcor has the same sensor and switches as my Steelseries Rival.
The Avago 3090 has no built in acceleration or angle snapping whatsoever, I was using a Razer Imperator before my Rival and the sensor in that had hardware angle snapping. So even if you disabled it on the software side it was still there.

Going from that to the Avago 3090 on my Rival I could instantly tell the difference.
The CM Alcor is definitely the mouse to get if you want zero acceleration and angle snapping both software and hardware wise.
