No. At least not without opening the mouse and voiding the warranty.

Is it really exactly the same and if so why does that mean it could not be set up so you could turn it off? The LED has different color settings for different DPI so it is obviously controlled by the mcu and could be turned off by it as well if the mouse was set up so you could configure the LED one way or another. I'm not saying how it currently is it can be turned off and I doubt it can be, but it could be set up so you could turn it off.

Weird, they are using slightly different firmware or something though since it is 1000hz and the LED changes colors right? Or does the FM change colors also? I didn't think it did, but I don't pay much attention because FM seems like overpriced mediocre stuff with a bunch of hype for absolutely no reason. The firmware COULD just as easily turn the LED off as change the color if it was configured to do it.

Of course the firmware can do different things if it was written to.

FinalMouse and Dream Machines use the same ODM, hence why the FinalMouse PCB is being used in the Dream Machines mouse (I think they are using the PCB without permission). The factory is MotoSpeed (if I remember correctly).

All I was saying is that wasn't really a direct answer to the question since the same PCB could turn off the LEDs.

If you don't want a mouse with software then get one that doesn't have software.

I couldn't care less about whether or not the mouse has software, I just want a mouse that performs well and fits well in my hand with good build quality and click latency that doesn't suck. I haven't found it yet.

Well, realistically you can actually appease both crowds. You release a mouse that can have DPI/LOD/polling rate adjustable via button combos like we already see, then simply create an optional Castor-like software for those who want to fine tune further (castor software doesn't install, it's just an exe you open, change settings/write to mouse, then close). The only thing stopping anyone from doing that is not wanting to spend the extra bit of time/money. And marketing.

Far as I am aware, the FinalMouse Tournament Pro and Scream1 doesn't allow changing of the LED colors or turning the LEDs off and doesn't allow 1000Hz for the 3310 mice. I assume the Dream Machines mouse doesn't have the feature to allow turning off the LEDs, but since the FinalMouse PCB has two RGB LEDs they [Dream Machines] utilize the different colors for different CPI steps. These mice are intentionally very limited in their features compared to other products.
