If however a problem arise due to the modification of the gap, well, then it's a different story - but I don't see any potential problems related to the user expanding the gap between the buttons.
So this is not a dealbreaker - you have my word for it. I would like to point out that this only counts for this specific modification, other modifications to the mice might void warranties!! wink.gif

To further support this statement, Zowie was going to allow me to RMA my Mico even though I had filed down the space between the buttons to prevent this problem. But since they couldn't confirm that they fixed the tracking bug I never RMA'd it....

Are you guys going to fix this issue? Mine got sent back to kustom pcs (They offer great service BTW) I didnt feel I should have to take a knife to a brand new mouse to get it to work properly. However I would re-buy if it was fixed as the mouse was superb. Love the switches you choose as well

Might be something wrong with my mouse or incompatibility with my red HEIN HARD pad; AM-GS will randomly jitter in the middle of use. Will proceed to test further.

Might be the rought texture of the hien, i've got some very minor jittering on some cloth pads but nothing on hard surface, i would suggest we wait and see if other AM users have the same issue with the hien.

specool.gif Good to know. Ya, obviously one has nothing to do with the other and it would be a shame to lose business over it. but i also can see why some would not want to modify a new product also. Me i Say cut it smile.gif

Ok tracking is pissing me off. It's skipping and stuttering on my white shiden.

try it on a black qck or other black pad. Maybe lower to 500hz and see if you get better results.

Is the lift off distance noticeably lower on your Shiden compared to other surfaces? I hope its just the white colored pad lowering the already low lift off distance too low. I would be raging about it if I was in your position too, your pad wasn't exactly cheap.

Yep that's my suspicion as well. LOD is below 1CD so most likely.. frown.gif

How's the lift off distance on your other pads? Seems like the sensor and lens positioning was optimized for darker surfaces like the GT-F.
