DA:BE soft buttons?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I picked up a DA:BE to replace my old 1800 CPI DA, and noticed that the buttons were much softer/easier to press. Is this pretty normal? I'm assuming this is just bad luck as not every shell/mouse is going to feel the same?

As a side question, does the DA have any onboard memory so you can set it to a certain CPI and uninstall the drivers? With the old 1800 DPI DA I used it without drivers (which I believe sets it to 900 CPI/500hz).

Can you take a pic of the cable tip of your old DA? I can prob answer your question as to why this is. smile.gif

Yes. You'll need the standalone DA Black edition driver to do this though. (non Synapse)

Unfortunately I don't have a camera, or rather one that would be capable of taking even close to decent pictures with me at the moment. I'll try and find one in the morning. I'm assuming that Razer switched to a cheaper shell or something?

The clicks don't feel awful, but I've always been much more fond of clicks that are tactile/harder to press. I was considering buying an EC2/EC1 instead since people normally complain about the Huano switches being harder to press, but it seems like the new EC mice have jitter issues on multicolored pads so I decided to pick up another DA.

And thanks for the info, I'm not a fan of Razer's driver set up (I had the legacy drivers installed already since I've heard so many wonderful things about Synapse) so I'll be uninstalling those immediately.

Actually they moved to a larger more capable factory during the 3G era. I wouldn't say cheaper.

My DeathAdder "jitters" too on a multi colored pad or on some weaves. It's not really a Zowie issue I think. It is just the surface and sensor combination. Although it is made more apparent with higher magnification of the lens. Also at the 1000Hz setting mice can appear to "jitter" compared to the 500Hz setting.

I dunno about softer or harder but my old 1800 dpi DA in my drawer has different feeling side buttons than the black edition. I like how the blacks feel better though.

That's actually pretty funny, I feel like the side buttons on my DA:BE are more responsive (in terms of feel) than M1 and M2.
