Steelseries and Zowie sold "IOSE clones" but in sense they were nothing more than standard production model 1.1's with a nice paint job and Teflon feet.

The clan mice you see around various sites and or ebay are likely to be self painted. I don't think a "real" SK edition exist. tongue.gif


Nevermind you're right, was thinking of the Qck+ pads for some reason. o.O

Do you prefer the gloss over the original?

Opened up plenty of newer and older Intellmice/WMO's and they all share the same essential design.
I didn't say Microsoft fixed it ... the koreans/chinese did it. When they opened the mouse to paint it they probably greased the wheel or something and fixed the scroll bug. It's really smooth, feels like a Xai scroll wheel.

Yes! I always buy the glossy version of mice. I had a Xai RUSE, DA Dragon Age II, Kinzu Red (bought from ebay) etc. Sold them all eventually . I don't have sweaty palms and the grip is better this way. Looking forward to that glossy white Kana . I like the rubberized material (paint?) on the sides though.

So you're saying they fixed it, but aren't sure yourself?

I'm not trying to give you a hard time, but the MS encoder works one specific way and either gets loose by wear and tear of the plastic gear, bending of the plastic, or simply snapping on one side.

The "bug" where you randomly scroll is caused by the optical part of the encoder reading the tip of the next notch in line. IE: caused by one of the problems above.

It's not something that's fixable, but it's good that you have a working one

On the subject, is an x800472 1.1A a legit WMO?

it's fixable, all u have to do is jam a small piece of aluminium on the bottom of the mouse wheel axis bearing (right side of course, becuase encoder is on the left). this makes the bearing tighter, which in turn fixes the wheel looseness/bug/extremely loud sound...

Oh it's ok don't worry about it. I love discussing these things, that's why i joined the forum I said i don't know how they did it, but i'm pretty sure it's fixed. I also had 3 x IMO 1.1 in the past and i fixed the scroll bug on all of them ( ). The method with the piece of paper it's pretty easy and works like a charm. However when doing this the scroll becomes a little stiff, but with their method (whatever it is) the scroll feels very smooth and easy to use (comparable to a Xai scroll wheel). You posted a picture on another thread with some sort of fix for this problem, maybe it's the same in this case.
Anyway how about writing that Kana review already?

That only really prolongs the issue for plastic bend. It might push up and increase the resistance, but it won't really work if the encoder snaps or simply wears. If you want to call jamming a piece of paper or aluminum in between the PCB and plastic "fixed", then I guess I just have a different way of thinking about the matter.

-If something was claimed fixed, I would have personally opened and checked the mouse, but then again there's no point in wasting feet when the product is working up to standards.

-I don't think the rantopad mechansim was sold publicly, although it was likely available in thier Geek line of mice as a feature. Not sure if it really works, but hey should do something lol

It certainly would be nice to publish what I have so far, although the product hasn't been publicly announced and I've been asked to restrain any major comments until a press release has been written. Sorry about that.
