Dream Machines DM1 Pro S - Page 35

post #341 of 934
So, got the Dm1 Pro S today (played for a couple of hours) and my intial impression of it is that it's great. However as im 100% for shape instead of a perfect sensor, i do have to say that Sensei Raw feels better in the hand. It has better M1 and M2 clicks and the coating is a bit better (it's personal opinion ofc). Somehow Sensei feels a little bit bigger as well even though the shells look identical for the eye (it might be due to the oversized sidebuttoms on DM1 that prevent that feeling, not sure). DM1 has better click/touch on the sidebuttoms, but they are (as mentioned) too big for this particular formfactor (wider and stick out more) of the shell which can make people with bigger fingers or bigger hands in general = having problem with a prefered front grip with the thumb (right under the sidebuttoms). The sidebuttoms somewhat prevent me from having a higher grip which enabled more control. In that regard Sensei's sidebuttoms are better in terms of size. Should also mention that the cord is way too short and i had to move my PC quite a bit in order to be able to plug into the USB port. So is Dm1 Pro S an improvement over the Sensei Raw? Yes it is, but in my personal opinion, it's mainly due to the sensor itself. Other than the feel of the sidebuttoms and skatez, and the slightly reduce weight i still prefer Sensei overall. That being said, i need more playtime with the Pro S to make a final conclusion, but so far it's pretty awesome all in all despite the flaws. Those sidebuttoms do annoy me a bit however..

Question: I haven't devoted time figuring out how to either turn of the lights or find a way how to make them stop blink (i want steady light in that case). Anyone know?

@Pinp0int One might see the amount of annoyance a immediate function of the unneccessary dpi steps. So, 6 steps (DM Pro S) is a little more annoying than 5 steps, and 8 steps (Nixeus Revel) is the point where it gets really annoying to me. wink.gif

BTW, who needs interpolated/faked 12000dpi anyway? (PMW 3366/3360 is 5000dpi native)

No it's not 5000 CPI native. Every step on the 3366 is native. CPI steps that aren't native are a thing of the past.

Not all mice are created equally. I've been gaming on a DeathAdder for over 3yrs now and of all the mice I own, my DA has the lightest clicks of all my mice. I have the DM1 Pro (non-S), DM1 Pro S, and now the Revel. The thing is, it's subjective. It may have stiffer clicks than usual, but that doesn't mean everyone else is thinking the same. It's just a lot stiffer than I'd like. And it's definitely stiffer than my DeathAdder and EC1-A (now that mouse I own has some stiff friggin' clicks). Again, highly subjective. It's kinda like the Revel thread where people are reporting about the poor skates. My copy doesn't have poor skates. Does that mean my copy dictates what everyone else should be experiencing?

Dunno about the dpi steps, I just talked about the maximum native dpi, which is 5000dpi. Where did you read that it is higher? I would be interested in a link/source.

@Ino. I watched your first impressions vid on the Revel and I'm wondering if the DM1 Pro S's implementation of the 3360 is the same. I have both the Pro S and Revel and it just seems like 800 CPI is a lot more sensitive than usual. It feels like 900 CPI and I have to mess around with my in-game settings. Otherwise, I have to overly adjust my aim to the heightened sensitivity. 800 CPI on the 3360 sensors the Pro S and Revel definitely do not feel the same as 800 CPI on the G303 and G900. I think the implementation and how high they set the CPI is a lot different.

Yepp. My DPI came in at 823. It feels a bit more sensitive.

The 3310 has 5000 dpi as well as the 3366/3360.

@m0uz This german site says the 3366/3360 is based on the 3310 and both are physically very similar. (They actually say "almost identical") http://www.pro-gamer-gear.de/maus-sensor/
