TeamScorpion G-Reaver - Frost Wyam - Zealot

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Some mice from overseas. These actually have some good hardware in them and look interesting. I'm digging the form-factor they have and lightweight.

Uses an Avago 9500 sensor. Comes with Omron Micro/UPE Teflon feet. Has drivers to customize settings/macros/LED colors.

Uses an Avago 3050 sensor. Same Omron and Teflon. Also supports drivers and custom settings. By DPI steps.

Frost Wyam

Also uses an Avago 3050 sensor. Same switches and feet as others listed. Comes with driver supports to customize macros/sensitivity/LEDs/etc. Customizable DPI.

Personally I like how all these mice are ambidextrous and weight very light. I might pick one of the Avago 3050 mice to see if they have prediction or not and they seem solid.

The 3050 ROM is angle snapping free.

There's more to a mouse than just sensor branding and switches ^^

Indeed I'm curious to see the build quality. Nice to know it won't have angle-snapping.

I have the Zealot!

Chose it primarily for the light weight and have not been disappointed. It looks nice in person-- by default, the light coloring the inner body section pulses between several different colors, while the round piece in the lower bottom position flashes red when the mouse moves. Build quality, in general, is respectable; though extremely light, it feels decently solid, and hasn't lost any functionality in the better part of a year that I've owned it (and poor quality devices tend to die very, very fast in my possession). Shape-wise, the sides are quite flat, which may take some getting used to, though, once you are adjusted, overall fatigue from using the mouse is surprisingly low. And I probably don't even have to say this, given the dimensions, but this mouse is fingertip grip only; claw and palm grips, unless your hands are far smaller than mine, are not recommended with this mouse.

One criticism is that the metallic-looking side grips aren't actually metal. They're plastic that has been painted with conductive paint and then electroplated. From a practical point of view, this isn't altogether a bad thing, since it keeps the mouse light and means the grips do not bend out of position. The downside is that eventually, the electroplating and paint wear off in places, leaving splotches of the underlying white plastic visible. It doesn't affect the functionality at all, but it's not great-looking.

Also, if you're used to having a lot of functions on the mouse, you won't get them with the Zealot. In order to keep the mouse as light as possible, you get a left click, right click, a scroll wheel click, and a DPI button; although these, and the scroll wheel's up and down functions, can all be remapped in the software, no amount of remapping can make the mouse grow more buttons than it actually has.

I have no regrets about purchasing the Zealot. It won't be the last mouse I buy-- in fact, I have something else on the way even now-- but I'm glad that I have it and would recommend it to others (so long as they're lightness-obsessed fingertip grippers).

Update: Liking it better than ever now that I've enhanced it with mouse gestures. It's looking ever likelier that I'll be sticking with the Zealot as my main mouse until it dies.

from exp, the ambidextrous shape is very forceful due its sides and the fact that the overall mouse is quite wide than expected, please take in account!

Also, its cheap. mad.gif

Got mine on eBay. Think all the Team Scorpion mice (these three plus the cheaper "X-Luca" model) are available there.
