Sensor/Shell interchanging

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I want the Mico shell/buttons (I actually like a firm switch), but a sensor that is bug free. As long as the sensor has no acceleration and no angle snapping and 1000hz 1600 or 1800dpi, I don't care which sensor it is. Just not a bugged one!

I've never done any such modding, so I'm completely naive on the topic. Any suggestions or anyone who has done this before?

Tried the Kinzu v2 pro? It has the Mico's Pixart sensor , but with a very usable 1600 CPI step. (I don't think such a Mico mod has been done before)

edit:
Afaik the non pro version has a more "firm" switch.

I have a Kinzu v2 Pro already, but I don't actually have a Mico... I'm hesitant to get one due to the known issues, but it's the only mouse I can seem to find that is small enough and the kind of shape I like. I've tried the Salmosa Pro, but I don't like the button shape or switch lightness.

What would be the easiest way to see if the Kinzu pcb etc would fit in the Mico? Get someone with one to take it apart and measure the pcb or something?

maybe a MicoAdder would be a possibility. Do it like a KinzuAdder. Keep the front part with the wheel and the buttons and connect it to the DA PCB.
Search for the pics of Kinzuadder and you will see what i mean.

Hmm I had a look at some of the kinzuadder threads; I don't think the adder pcb would fit in the mico as it's a real tight squeeze in the kinzu, which is larger than the Mico by a fair bit. Maybe I could try a MicoKinzu? Or a MicoCommatechM1 mmm

I might just buy the Roccat Pyra and give it a chance. I was hesitant for a number of reasons, including the off-centre sensor and slightly wider shape, but I guess it's only a $30 test.

Yes, but the shape of the Mico suits my hands better. The M1 is practically identical to the Logitech mini optical, which I've used a fair bit. I think I ended up giving it to my old lady. It was the mini that lead me to the conclusion I needed something smaller and ended up getting the asian pro edtiion of the Salmosa, but I hate the button shape and sensitivty on that.

ah ok, i didnt realize there was much of a difference (in terms of shape) between the M1 and Mico, as far as i was concerned the M1 was a Mico clone.

Commatech
Length: 104.38 mm
Width: 60.02 mm
Height: 30.04 mm


Mico
Length: 98 mm
Width: 58 mm
Height: 35 mm

Not a huge difference, but the Commatech is more low-line and long. The difference is enough to have an impact on MY comfort because I have really short fingers, but anyone who can hold the M1 comfortably should be fine with the Mico.
