is there a way to replace led's in a mouse? like if i could make them all green (at 400dpi) that would be pretty fkin cool.

the only problems i've had testing it so far is dpi differences between mice (not dreammachines fault) it feels a bit higher than my finalmouse ergo & ambi so i'm having to adjust so i quit whiffing those awp shots ._. and i had one jump without hitting my mousewheel (won't really make this a negative cause i couldve accidentally hit it but it felt like a random jump like microsoft & zowie mice do) butttt i'm on percocet & a muscle relaxer so it could be a user problem smile.gif

anyways my first impression of it is it's pretty awesome i might use it for scrims tonight =)

Scroll has good notches, side buttons feel rather plasticy to me. Feet have plastic on them at the beginning so if the glide sucks for you, check you removed the plastic, the cable scratches on the pad because of the downward way that it is inserted and because it's braided which adds friction (ick...) but all in all I think it's a pretty good mouse, I love the coating.

I'd have to give it a week or two to say for sure, but it felt a little to wide in my hands and like it needed a little more height.

Overall for my first impressions, it's good but not great, and the reason I say it's not great is the same downfall that leads to the mouse's overall demise to me, the fact it uses a braided cable and the angle it comes out at makes it rub up against the pad, it's just a general no no to me.

EDIT: Just plugged it in and it feels a lot snappier than my AM, it sort of just "glides" across the screen unlike my AM which sort of "chugged" along. I also noticed that the clicks are a little bit spongy to me it seems. sad-smiley-002.gif

yeah i have girl hands and it felt a little too wide but then i busted out my old sensei and it feels pretty 1:1 so i know i can get used to it and also +++ on the coating i dont have the spongey clicks tho =o true on the cable pointed down but with my bungee i didnt notice much friction (i'm pretty sure i'll be changing the cable out anyways because of the color so i can fix that problem xD)

It feels like they have pre travel or something but when I'm looking at it, they don't have pre travel...maybe I'm just used to my AM sitting directly on top of the switches so any force that would be enough to move the buttons down actuates the switch. I'm sure I can get used to it, it's just my first impressions after all.

I have little baby hands as well, 17.8cm by 8.8cm, the only reason my hand is so long is because my fingers are super long, I expected it to feel pretty AM shaped because the AM is basically my baby but it's not, I like the shape a little more than the AM's shape because the sides aren't sloped in a upward like /\ which makes it easier to palm. Time will tell if this becomes my new daily driver. thumb.gif

Have you used the AM on the 2300 setting?

I have, yes, comparing 400 to 450, 800 to 1150, and 1600 to 2300, it feels much snappier than all of them, of course 2300 is the best DPI to use the AM at because it's 1800 magnified by 1.25x, it just generally feels more responsive to me but this isn't an objective way of measuring the responsiveness, it's just how it feels to me and should be taken as an opinion since feeling is entirely subjective.

You could use MouseComparator or MouseTester Reloaded.

I have no clue if I did this right, Blue = DM1, Green = Zowie AM. I placed them at the top of my mouse pad, did a few slow swipes to the right, then a few back to the left, then some fast ones right and left, swapped mouse and then went again. The sudden drops in counts are because I run out of mousepad and pick the mouse up.



EDIT: I put both of them in the same hand and moved them as quickly as I could, here's another img.

Glide is a bit smoother then in Sensei but they are similar after all. These feets were best from what factory had. kana/kinzu feets looks a bit smaller but also im not sure, but may fit as well tongue.gif).

Eh, seems like a good effort nonetheless. I could tell from pics the cable would be an issue. Hopefully we see 3360 mice in this sort of shell to compete w/ the Scream One.

And hopefully they fix the cable coming out at this downward angle which makes it scrape against the pad, I don't know how much I'll be able to use this mouse because of that...it feels nice but ugh the cable, PLEASE THE CABLE.
