ATTN: CMStorm Spawn Mouse owners - Page 41

post #401 of 725
I have just set the "up" DPI button to have no function and use the "down" DPI button to toggle through all DPI settings.

I have never pushed scroll wheel or DPI buttons by accident when scrolling.

No offense, but that's just like Apple claiming "You're holding it wrong".

I feel you in the DPI-UP accidently being pressed-claim, but getting use to it after few days or so

I decided to experiment. I load fw 105 of Recon to my Spawn... Spawn died... I load fw 61 and Spawn alive! Miracle...

I'm hoping CM comes out with a new software driver before the end of the year

Item 1: Middle Mouse Button (mmb)
* Often I accidentally press the mmb while scrolling. Is this just my mouse, or a known issue?
Item 2: DPI Button (Next to Scroll Wheel)
* I easily hit the "increase DPI" button when I'm scrolling. Again, is this just my mouse or a common issue?
Resolution:
* Has anyone attempted modifications to prevent these issues?
* Is my mouse faulty, and should be rma'ed?
* Any other clever advice ; ) ?
Cheers.


Update: I rma'd the mouse, and here are the results.


Improvements:
* Middle Mouse Button: I have no idea if they are using a different switch, manufacturing process change, or what have you, but this issue has improved. I am less likely to accidentally depress the button.

Unchanged:
* The "increase dpi button" is still problematic, so I've disabled it, and have changed the "decrease dpi button," to cycle through dpi settings, as a workaround.

Suggested Improvements:
* Find a better location for the dpi buttons, or change switch type, etc.
* Increase scroll wheel size; it's too small (width and length)
* Move scroll wheel forward, i.e., out towards the direction of the cord. Current location makes scrolling a bit uncomfortable.
* The right and left mouse buttons are a little small. Slightly larger surface area would be nice (width, and likely length)

Undecided:
* General size seems small; with the changes above, size might already be right.
* Tilt wheel - can this be added without compromising other mouse functionality?


Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised by this mouse. Would dig seeing Cooler Master make a few changes, to make it even better.


Cheers.

I disagree with most of what you wrote except from the dpi up button being easy to press. I guess it depends on the size of your hand
