Qpad 5K LE Avago 9800 - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Does the mouse have cheap feeling in the hand as it looks?

It does feel a bit cheaper than I was expecting, and does feel cheaper than the Mionix Naos 5000, which is the most similar product to it.

Do you know how to test for 'perfect control'?

I do not.

Do you know how to test negative accelration and positive?

I do not

Do you know how to test for stable HZ?

I do not

Does the feets are teflon?

Yes, the feet are teflon, and come with a replacement pack. They do glide very smoothly. I am using the Steelseries 9HD mousepad.

Can you open the mouse and show us a picture of whats within?

I'm not super familiar with how to open this mouse. It doesn't exactly have any screws or instructions for dis-assembly.

Notes on question 2 - 4

I have a windows 64 bit operating system, and very novice hardware background. Also, I checked this thread http://www.overclock.net/t/951894/the-truthful-mouse-guide and was sad to see that the files he said we should be thankful for him hosting were mysteriously missing. If you have a current workable solution for a 64 bit machine, I'd be more than happy to try it.

Second note.

I downloaded the software for this mouse from QPAD, and it did not function properly. The software allegedly will allow me to change the polling rate and the DPI sensor, but it doesn't detect the mouse. I sent the people at QPAD mail asking them about this, and they have yet to get back to me.

When you say cheap do you mean it feels like it has poor build quality? Does it have a matte covering or is it just plastic?

Cheaper plastics / tolerances or the tooling variant might be cheaper. Both the Naos 5000k and Qpad 5K are OEM'd out of the same factory. (Shape and all)

So, to answer a few questions on the sensor, I made an album

http://imgur.com/a/kbWib

I went through and drew a configuration at varying mouse speeds (As determined by Windows 7 Mouse Settings bar) in paint. I turned off or turned on Mouse Precision to show the difference between the two. I don't really have a way to change the polling rate on the mouse, but I'm reasonably certain that QPAD sets all their base polling rates to 500, so I don't think there is an issue.

Hopefully this helps a little bit?

Plastic Answers

Allow me to clarify / restate what I meant when I stated this: "It does feel a bit cheaper than I was expecting, and does feel cheaper than the Mionix Naos 5000, which is the most similar product to it."

I should have said that it seems cheaper, not feels cheaper. It feels approximately the same as the Naos. It doesn't have weights, which makes it seem (definitely a better word than feel) like a cheaper mouse, especially when its exact competitor does have them. I don't mind not having weights, but I am mildly irked at not having the option to make that choice myself.

I believe the core parts of the mouse that you touch on a regular basis are all high quality matte plastic.

The middle of the mouse is a different matte than the edges of the mouse. The middle (left and right click part) is the sort that picks up fingerprints and sweat, and the edges do not.

Notes on the browser forward and back buttons - they are made of cheap plastic, as are the mouse mode switching buttons and the indicator light that displays which mode is currently in use. These buttons are the primary reason that the mouse looks a little cheaper than the Mionix mouse.

The scroll wheel is of good quality and rubber (rubberized plastic?) I believe, but looks like they didn't really care how it looked while lit up. It is a clearly different color when lit up compared with the mode display light.

If anyone has any other questions or comments, I'd be happy to answer.

Thanks for the details.

However I have to say that I don't think Qpad did that good a job this time round. Doesn't make sense to have mouse buttons that would act as fingerprint/sweat magnets. I feel that the Naos design is much more sensible given that the entire mouse is covered in a matte layer.

Indeed, looks like you can´t switch position or change your grip.
I don´t really like that design even tho I haven´t tried it.
