yeah i thought originally you could customize your dpi and you can but you can only choose between preset steps and 800 is not one of them. 1000 is ok for me. i was used to the 1150 dpi step on the ec2 evo cl before moving to 800 anyway.

I think prediction is the culprit for this weird feeling.

If so, I'd consider using it long term if they reduced it (at least at 500 dpi).

Similar results on 500 dpi / 1000 dpi as posted earlier.

I recon this might become a really neat mouse at 500 dpi, but beyond it, it feels horrible (jumps around like crazy even trying to select a single pixel on the desktop). This is most likely going to be "500 dpi or bust".

The shape is the most positive thing though, probably the best one I've ever held in my hands.

EDIT:

Ingame however 1000 dpi feels much more manageable in a 3D environment... hmmz. Also it doesn't seem to malfunction at 4 m/s (though no perfect control at 4 m/s). Behaves a bit like the MX518: http://www.esreality.com/?a=longpost&id=1265679&page=14

How would you compare the shape to ZA? Does it feel a lot lower than it? How is the perceivable width/ height?

I haven't used a ZA, but a bit better then a FK2. Though I'd probably rate the sensor way better in the FK2.

Well you should, in the FK2 3310 verses the Rival 100 - 3050, there's enough mouse geeks here on OCN that would agree that the current sensor in the Rival 100 is crap compared to any type of 3310 sensor.

Now we need to wait and see who has the balls to gut their Rival 100 and replace it's sensor with a 3310 cheers.gif .

Hump is definitely less prominent than the ZA series. If you've used something like the Sensei before it's like that, a fairly traditional arc. Width feels pretty good for the size of the mouse.

I just got mine.

This feels VERY similar to a Zowie FK in terms of shape and size, but with a better mouse wheel, softer clicks (not mushy like DA2013), no smoothing, and RGB which is cool.

The drawbacks - the top coating is super slippery for dry hands, the LOD is stupid high

Overall very satisfied.

I could be far more explicit about how I feel of the raised area around the sensor aperture scraping every cloth pad I own, but let's just say I'm so done with stoolseries. I'm now fully convinced they intentionally leave some design flaws in.

The buttons are so bad compared to my KPM which is crisp with good feedback yet lighter to press.
Sidebuttons are a joke biggrin.gif

1000dpi still feels somewhat bad, not unusable but not that great either.

I will give it 1 more week before I put it in the graveyard and goes back to my KPM in wait for roccats new mice biggrin.gif

That's it, I'm ordering the Xtrfy XG-M2 and another Newmen gx1pro. Steelseries just can't get it right, Its like they are doing it on purpose. I'm done with SS for now.
