Would be much obliged, i actually meant for the pics to be taken with the mouse fully assembled, makes one wonder how sites with thousands upon thousands of dollars, paying people to review, fails to take pictures even remotely close to the ones you took

I think it's because they don't have in their intention to serve the people. This makes a huge difference, i noticed this with myself. This is why you get those dull reviews, sometimes with only one picture.

Aye, seems that non paid reviewers, are always much more knowledgeable and seems to care more overall about what people actually get, instead of just trying to sell whatever the company paid them to promote :\ (which makes sense for the company who paid for the review, but still i rage every time i see a few with "Positive; HIGH DPI!, WEIGHT SYTEM" "Negative; No LEDS, Not Laser, Not 71 buttons" ^^

I wanted to make that point next. If you'd try to educate them about whats important, they would be like "no one cared about this and now you come with this stuff?" This shows again the same problem. Would it be for the people, one would accept it and try to learn, because it's clearly important to know to the people. Anyway, apart from sensor performance: All the apparent thing you can elaborate on, the shape alone, you could provide comparisons and so on. I know, that takes time.
Afterall, if they just want to earn a living, there's not a problem in selling tomatoes. But at least those of good quality, get us some high res pictures (and stay honest).

Sure thing, here you go. Took some in comparison to the most well known mouse in comparison, the WMO 1.1a. I used my white model to enhance contrast. All pictures are aligned with a level, so there's no distortion.










Healthy distance, so the cord won't scrap on the used surface.


For high res go to my gallery

Well, after using the always-registering scroll wheel over the course of the day, I encountered some problems, that led me to open the shell again, and look for another solution.
The tape around the clip thing works just fine, but it definitely makes the scroll stiffer. While this is just a matter of getting used to, the stiffness was inconsistent. Sometimes it would scroll very freely, sometimes I felt more resistance. I think this is a result of the clip not being able to move freely in its seat. Since you can't fixate the wheel in the cradle altogether, or you'll change the wheel click from very hard to not working anymore, the idea was to enhance the clip's friction with tape. That way it had a harder time moving up and down, and it worked. However, same friction was responsible (I think) that the clip now wasn't returning to its lowest point quickly enough, making not only the scrolling harder, but also the wheel click, and very noticeable, so I might add.

Here's the mod I'm trying out: I didn't apply tape to the clip, but to those clumsily constructed black things, which should keep the wheel assembly in its cradle. Namely the long part, not the pointy one.


Works fine. Wheel scrolls from anywhere, and didn't get stiffer. Click is working like before too. thumb.gif We'll see if any long term side effects occur. wink.gif

I am tempted to get an FK but I have an EC2 (original) and I absolutely hate the scroll wheel. Its old and it does have the scroll wheel bug where it does not register the first few scrolls. I had an AM but it was too hard to grip. I am currently happy with the sensei raw besides the right button being mushy. The FK looks nice but $70 is a lot of money for the mouse.

Must say, after receiving an FK it's actually done a lot to alleviate the hand cramping I got with the AM. With my grip style (hybrid palm/claw even though I have bigger hands) the extra width at the top widens the grip for my ring finger (which I lay along the mouse). In other words, unless you're fingertipping this mouse, it should feel wider than the AM. The clicks are significantly softer than the AM (like, by a lot; almost as soft as Omrons) but slightly more tactile than Omron switches, and I personally find the rubber coating easier to grip, along with the shape.

Overall, I'm very impressed with this mouse. Flattening the back slightly and inverting the side angles has taken the cramp out of my grip while letting me continue to use a mouse that otherwise performs just like an AM.
