I have not tried the black edition, but my KPM did feel a bit better (might be placebo but i felt it was slightly snappier) when I updated the firmware and turned of DCU (firmware fixed the bug etc). But it might already be fixed on the black edition, I have no Idea biggrin.gif

I'm out of the loop and just got the military strike edition of the roccat KPM. What is this DCU option?

Ok so, I just tried this mouse again after using the G303 for almost a year. And omg, this thing is an absolute headshot machine in CS:GO. I remember it being like this before too, but for some reason it feels even better now. My aim feels so second nature it's unreal, I can get one taps like scream. I played a couple community deathmatches, and had a pretty positive k/d ratio and top fragged in one of the rounds, which almost never happens for me. The 3310 in this mouse seems way snappier and better than the one in the EC2-A that I have. Kudos to Roccat, this mouse is excellent.

The only con is that my spray control seems a little worse, and I'm guessing that's because of the different shape so when I get used to this shape it'll improve. But damn, this is definitely my new daily driver.

It's supposed to affect liftoff distance. Never worked for me though.

Old KPMs would have DPI slowly change over time if it was set a certain way because of a firmware or SROM bug, but they've fixed it by the latest.

I uninstalled the software and there was no change the cursor still felt floaty....almost like it was using a completly different DPI than my Zowie..but they were both at 800. Oh well looks like another one for the shelf....back to the Zowie....

This mouse didn't work out for me, I returned mine, despite loving the coating and glide materials, the thumb grip, concave top and extended m2 felt really good in hand, but the lack of support for palm on the right side ruined everything even tough I was able to palm grip it just barely with 17.5 cm hands.
Its like the right side started really good at the back, but they "laser cut" it to make it uncomfortable on purpose, it just has an empty flat space there, also the front right extends outwards too much and its uncomfortable for the ring finger It does feel OK for fingertip grip but that makes the thumb grip and coating materials useless.
The lip on the mouse2 can also increase the chance of accidental clicks

Very sad because every other detail on the shape was perfect, the side buttons are also really easy to click, due to the sharp edge. And all the coating on sides, top, buttons wheel are unique and feel really smooth.

Also buyers should be aware that ROCCAT claims about using top quality internals are true, (ALPS scroll and TTC side switches) this fact is completely useless because they decided to use 5M chinese omrons on main buttons which should have premature double click problems, so dont expect durability from this one, this was a really dumb and dirty decision, pretty much every mouse above 35-40$ uses at least 10M omrons, and this mouse for some strange reason is very expensive in europe, but costs half as much in US.

The braided cable was annoying and sturdy, it dragged on the pad because it was not tilted upwards like some manufacturers do, the scroll was awesome albeit a bit too hard to click and a bit too far back but I have seen worse.

All the problems with variable DPI and unstable polling seem to have been fixed with latest firmware and macros work without drivers installed as expected.

I never considered ROCCAT a good manufacturer, in the past they used terrible cheap materials and silly shapes for really overpriced mice, even their rubber dome keyboards can cost as much as a 6Gv2.
They got lucky with the Kone and almost got everything right, if it had a proper right side like the one in the Zowie EC2 and flexible cable this would heave been my main mouse for sure.

It's not designed for palm grip users.
The switches used in the main buttons may have been a recent change after prices on them dropped so much.

Try lowering the polling rate to 500hz.

KPM 3310 has always had 5m omrons?

To my knowledge yes. No word of the switches or sensor being changed. Part of the reason I bought it last month.

Don't sweat it, when the current ones fail or get harder to press remove and replace, simple really cap.gif .

Hi.

I just bought this mouse from a German company called bit-electronix for a really good price over here in the UK. They auction stated it was new but open boxed. The auction also mentioned it was a 'revocation' item, wherever that means in Germany.

So it arrived yesterday (3 days from de to uk not bad) and from what I can tell the lens is good and not loose at all. The item does look new (which is nice) and was in original box.

I am loving the mouse tbh it feels really great in the hand but I have a little issue. It seems the LMB floats above the switch by a mm. Once you get clicking it disappears but if you leave the mouse for a minute and click you feel the gap. I remember my old MX518 did that but I kept it and just got used to it. But nowadays I like things to be perfect (OCD) but shipping back to Germany could be a hassle and If I got it replaced it could be the same or have lens rattle. My Lua doesn't have this problem.

Would you keep it or send it back?
