How much are you paying for the XG-M2?

It'll be expensive. Probably $100+ AUD.

Just received the mouse i would say its an ok mouse. What's interesting is to achieve the same speed movement as on my MX518 (800DPI) it needs to be set to 1500CPI.

I gonna test it some more smile.gif

This is most likely going to be "500 dpi or bust".

Should get mine today. Looks like it might take the spot of back-up mouse judging by some of the comments. I'm fine with that though it was like 25 quid....with mouse mat.

Got it and first impressions are much better then I thought.

The good

-Build quality actually probably best I've seen on a mouse of this price. Fit and finish just great all over
-Scroll wheel better then my ZA11 and feels like the rivals
-No gloss on the base its that nice textured plastic.
-Zero rattle
-Clicks are nice. Not as nice as Zowies but above average for me
-Shape is sex
-Very bendy upbraided cable
-Keeping up with my movements at 70cm/360 even on fast 180s. (Will double check this later after some caffeine)

The bad

-Would have liked it a few grams lighter
-LOD is high
-Skates very sharp and make the mouse extremely slow on cloth. Swapping them for 1.1/3,0 skates solves this problem straight away but poor show from SS

Much better then I thought. And I'll use it for a while to see how it goes. Will certainly be holding on to it in case my daily driver poos the bed.

Do you know if I'll be able to throw on my extra set of DA Hyperglides onto the R100? Not sure if you have a DA to compare the shape of the pieces. Got my R100 coming later this week.

The feet are indeed garbage.
It's like dragging it in a swamp compared to my KPM biggrin.gif

You can feel that they are low quality feet just by touching them, bad glide.

I don't I'm afraid but if you're on cloth you will need some after market skates unless you hate yourself.

Sensor wise the mouse seems serviceable. Its not quite as nice feeling as the 3310 but you could certainly get used to it. Will be good to tide me over till the final mouse comes out thats for sure.
