Well I mean I'm talking about razer, SS, logitech; to adjust the settings you need to install their software which comes with other things many of us don't really care about like 'game integration' or extra drivers for other products.. I checked device manager and see tons of entries like keyboard entries when I'm only using a mouse etc

I'm sure there can be a quick little application that doesn't even require installation to just change hz/dpi and save it to the on-board

Time to look elsewhere because this will always be the pride for owners who aren't 'brain dead' enough to always want bloatware installed onto their systems 24/7 doh.gif .

I've already joined the drop on the Revel. If they made a version with that little bit of RGB then I'd end up getting that one as well.
Yes there are many mice that do have RGB. If an RGB version if this or the Standard issue is not in considerstion then I'll just buy a Steelseries Rival 100. I like lights way too much, I can't help it

I would say I dont care about lights bc any mouse/keyboard I have with RGB I turn that off, but I always hated my Zowie EC1 forcing me to have a hot pink scroll wheel. As long as the lower DPIs on the Revel are decent colors I think it'll be ok.

The Nixeus logo is covered by your hand in use. I assume the logo and lower LEDs are seperate, so if need be, could open it up and unplug the lower LED.

I'm pretty sure part of the keyboard driver thing is so you can rebind buttons which is something I personally like. I use m5 in games some times, but hate it being a back button. I go nuts when I type something, put my hand back on the mouse and accidentally hit the back button which is the only time it ever gets hit outside of games for me. This forum is good about saving posts, but many are not. I actually tend to be a keyboard browser that occasionally clicks things rather than a mouse browser though. I think it comes from programming where I made an actual effort to learn keyboard shortcuts and touch the mouse as little as possible to gain efficiency.

Ill be honest, I would buy the Razer firefly (yes an RGB mousepad) not at 60 though. Or even the 45 it dropped to a while back. There are too many Infinitely better things to buy at that price, especially since the Sennheiser 518s dropped to 45. If it ever drops to 20 though, I will get one. Yes, I like lights, send help please.

Simple hz/dpi changer would be dope

Exactly, a simple utility that lets you turn on and off cpi steps and set custom values. Select polling rate and angle-snapping options.
I thought you needed a custom driver to set those values, but if the Castor does without then that's the way to go.

There is no LED in our scroll wheel. Also when using the mouse your hand will cover both the logo and bottom LED.

The HID entries he's mentioning is just the drivers their way of communicating with the mouse, it's not something to worry about... unless Synapse of course rolleyes.gif

For me at this point I don't even care about drivers, I just want a solid shape with a G303'esque performance.

I think only logitech will be able to do that... but logitech's mouse cables and mouse feet.... I dislike them enough to not use the products despite great build quality/responsiveness. I'm not sure what it is but their whole 6 piece mouse feet setup just doesn't feel good at all for gliding
