Kone XTD Optical
New from German PC accessories maker Roccat is a new entry in its Kone Series mice. The new Kone XTD Optical has an adjustable distance control unit to customize lift-off distance and a new 6,400dpi optical sensor. Roccat says that gamers will be able to significantly improve their accuracy with optical sensors. The Kone XTD Optical offers renowned features like Omron switches, the 4D Titan Wheel, Easy-Aim and Roccat Talk.
For the smaller Pure version of the Kone Series, Roccat has three new designs that it'll be rolling out at CES 2014. The Kone Pure Military features a 5,000dpi optical sensor with TDCU and will be available in three different styles: Desert Strike, Naval Storm and Camo Charge. ROCCAT will also make the new Kave XTD 5.1 Analog plus a mousepad available in the same design and sell the mice alone or as a bundle.

I`m happy with that setting.
Meanwhile my cheap MS Basic Optical has been working just fine for more than 5 years with the original micro-switches.
I tried the Sensei too the weight of my hand triggers the buttons. Got a Corsair M65 now and it is a good replacment for my old Logitech G5.
And has been for years, never let me down yet. :)
I've also had good luck with Logitech devices.
I can vouch for my 5200dpi logitech G500. It's durable, very functional, ergonomic, customizable and precise. Can barely work without it.
I still have my Sensei which I've used for over 2 years and had the Xai before that. Never had any problem at all on it and I used it daily. It just sucks that there's no lift off distance adjustement on the Rival.
