Dream Machines DM1 Pro S - Page 52

post #511 of 934
Ok after having received my second DM1 Pro S after sending my first one back due to a clicking issue, I am sad to say that it seems like a glaring issue on these mice.

When you press down firmly on the left mouse button (sometimes even if you press it lightly in a certain spot) there is a 'springy' bump when the mouse button goes back to the starting position.
If the switch is pressed it makes a 'click' sound and when the switch comes back up it also makes a 'click' sound, on the dm1 pro s there seems to be some sort of weird gap that makes it have a 'springy plastic feeling' when you let the button go right in between the switch coming down and up.

This might sound weird but here is a video sample I made showing the issue:

Notice the sound difference when 'clicking' which makes a clicking tactile sound, and then there is a 'bump' when you first lift off the button after having pressed it in.

Note that this problem DOES NOT occur on the right mouse button at all.

Sad to say that I am sending this one back as well.

Doesn't every mouse click when the button returns?

Thats not the issue, the issue is that the mouse shell 'bumps' upwards when you release it.

But I have found a solution to the issue, which is also a way to tension your buttons if you think they are too loose:

I took the mouse apart to see what is causing it, and it was the shell itself.
So what I did was is I took the foam padding that came with the mouse and stuff a smal layer underneath the mouse button which fixed the issue, but made the button slightly stiffer.
With that being said, I added two layers to my rmb because I want it to be heavy since I always press it by accident during gameplay.

This can also be done using a small piece of paper folded once, depending on how stiff you want it.

My short pros/cons:

PROS
  • Cord. Yes, I like it. Shut up. I don't like flappyflappediflapflap-Zowie -style cables. I like it stiff. Also the braid looks durable but can't guarantee.
  • Sensor feels nice. <- Useless information. Sensor performs fine.

That's pretty much it...

CONS
  • LMB is potato. It's like... umm... loose? And feels almost like it would be grinding the middle part of the shell. Much worse than RMB.
  • Coating (matte) is horrible; it's almost like someone poured some powder on it. Seriously, my hands are sweaty but this just doesn't stick at all. Very slippery for me. I can lift (e.g.) KPM with two fingers on the buttons and back of my palm on it's butt, without really using any force at all... this one, no chance.

I do not know why I bought it... Sensei shape is still too big for me. I'd expect to learn from my mistakes (I have a Sensei) but no. doh.gif Oh well, open you go and I'll see if the firmware actually follows Pixart's suggested 3360's initialization etc. processes. At least I get to compare it to the 3366. Potential sensor donor?

Can you record a short vid clicking the lmb? It's funny that it's slippery for you , it's very solid and grippy for me, actually the only thing that comes close is actual rubber sides like the rog gladius. Never try a wmo 1.1a if the matte version is slippery for you lol

My RMB is great, my LMB is stiff and inconsistent depending on where it's pressed and it seems to be a bit lower than the RMB. Could someone explain the correct steps into fixing it?

Hmmm. I think the most frequently noted issue with the Pro S is the inconsistency of the M1/M2 buttons. There might be an issue where whoever assembled these mice for Dream Machines (all be it machinery or underpaid worker) did a mediocre job in aligning the top shell to the bottom shell. I still don't understand why companies refuse to segregate the M1/M2 buttons from the mouse's entire shell (I bet 9 times out of 10 is because it's due to cost). There's this assumption that all plastic bends equally when that's not true.

You want to take a piece of slightly thicker tape (I got some double sided tape but left the other side with the paper on it) and you want to tape it around the middle, slightly more towards the middle of the mouse.
This fixes the issue of the clicks in my case.

Edit: just read the yours was too stiff, you might wanna try loosening the front screw just a bit and see if it fixes it?

If you do this with stickers(I used teflon) and adjust the front screws you can make the clicks feel decent. Just takes some trial and error.

Also, are the dimensions of the mousefeet identical with the Sensei?~~~
