Dream Machines DM1 PRO S Giveaway - Matte or Glossy with PMW3360 Sensor - Page 10  

post #91 of 260
What do I prefer: : I don't think you could get an insight by considering what individuals need because it will vary a lot from person to person. So the right question for Dream Machines should be "What the market needs".

What the market needs: A quick look at the forum will give you an idea about that, just, for example, look at the hype g302 and g303 created. For a company like you needs to enhance their products with the specifications what others lack. So which group of gamers need a newer mouse? If we look at the CS:GO players' market, many have been using Deathadders and also Zowie is a really competitive strong brand. So, when gamers need a hassle-free, synapse-free simple and lightweight gaming mouse they can just go with Zowie. As the palm grip competition mouse is really hard, you should be going for claw-fingertrip market. Also it will be consistent for your product line-up too to have a smaller mouse. As the brand Dream Machines develop, you will need consistency within your brand, too.

Naming: The name of the mouse should be the key promoting it and its features. Also it should fit your other products' names. My name suggestion is Dream Machines DM3 Rapid. It is named after the R.E.M. (Rapid Eye Movement) state of the dream. The name should not be so complex as it will not reach the mainstream market if you do so. Why did we call the mouse Rapid?

Key Feature: DM3 Rapid is the quick mouse with less input lag, just what you need for your MOBA and FPS. Its lightweight design and low input lag will make you faster than your rivals.

Shape: Shape should be smaller than DM1 and DM2. Razer Krait, Razer Abyssus and Logitech G100S shapes are okay. So what we need here is a lightweight shape, which does not cause you cramps. (I'm looking at you, G302,G303)

Specs:
  • Lightweight, that you can move around freely.
  • Rubberized all matte look and expensive coating. It should not look or feel cheap at all, as all the small mice feel cheap. The only mice that don't cheap feel are for big hands. Also small-handed people are more prone to sweating so matte is the way to go.
  • Sensor: 3366, please. I don't think this needs an explanation.
  • There should be side buttons. This is another mistake of the small cheap feeling mice manufacturers - they do not add side buttons to them. As long as you don't add a big SNAYPAR button as a side-button, having side buttons will not make anyone not to buy your product if it is good to give a try.
  • RGB lightening. Do not listen to forum, just add it. It is a good way to sell your product to main market. Just give an option to close it for the people who do not want to use it. I wouldn't use it, too but you are into sales, and RGB does sell.
  • Fastest switch possible. I am no expert on omrons or other switches but you will need the softest and fastest switches for that. Even it can be one of those softest switches that mice producers are not willing to put those in as it would be a bold move. Be bold, be rapid.
  • Reasonable cord. Please do not put something that I can even do work-out my fingers with it like in G302-3. When the mouse is light, the cord should not be heavy or so thick.

Mix these all up and you have a new product in your Dream Machines product-line, which will focus on MOBA players as well as FPS players with small hands by hitting to the weakest points of competitors' relevant mice.

Regards.

Basically Kinzu clone with side buttons, 3360, japanese omrons. People are doing kinzuadders since forever, but the market for kinzu-esque mice with good sensors is literally empty.

Pure performance mouse. No useless customization features like rgb, weights, etc. An under 100g (at least), well balanced mouse with good sensor, switches, safe shape, and more of a tight, distinct 24-step scroll wheel for all of those who jump/bhop or switch weapons.

Oh also I would like a shape similar to the old logitech wingman mouse. I have fond memories of that one.

Name Idea: DM Beacon
(since Mice kinda glow like beacons of power)

Good mice should be durable, have some kind of minor weight adjustment, low friction feet and above all else LOW LATENCY SENSOR! And I think a DPI switcher is kind of mandatory at this point.

Edit: also beacon is oh so close to bacon smile.gif

DM3 - Oracle

Mouse with a prediction switch that allows adjustment of prediction on the fly and maybe even the ability to lock in x and y axis without allowing diagonal movement. It would mostly be targeted to graphic/website designers but if it were adjustable and even had a off setting it could be good for gamers as well. I think because this idea is fairly unique it could easily be the one that pushes you to the top and makes you stand out in the huge world of mice. I think having something Unique with a solid design (and price point) is really the only way to make it at this point.

Would like to see a taller mouse button end similar to the Deathadder or the Naga. Or possibly even a design similar to the e-blue cobra jr. I love the shape/size of the cobra jr but it is a cheap mouse, could use a higher quality cousin with slightly better side button position (this is actually the mouse I use now that has outlasted 3 mid range logitech mice and only cost $10, mousewheel and durability are phenomenal).

Excited to see what you guys will offer next, very cool contest to get some information out of these guys tongue.gif. Thanks for the opportunity, hope you like my idea! smile.gif

DM Zero

Classic Ergonomic Shape (IE 3.0 preferably)
Low debounce time (should match Logitech's if not beat it)
Light clicks (omron switches)
Scroll wheel (lightweight with distinctive steps)
Driverless — but with the ability to be customized through optional, portable software (no installer)
Profiles/Macros — at least 3 profiles and able to remap all buttons, including DPI (e.g. to use as a teamspeak button instead of dpi)
Rubber cord (light weight and not braided)
Weight (under 100g)

I think that about covers everything I would want for an ideal mouse. Thanks for the opportunity/giveaway and good luck everyone!

DM3 - Kinzu clone with 3360. That's what the market needs for a long time.
Edited by przem33k - 7/13/16 at 10:48am
post #99 of 260
Please just give me something lightweight ambi without side-buttons and a great sensor.

I grip my mouse with my thumb toward the top of the shell and legit can't find a mouse that's comfy for this grip and has a good sensor(Using WMO). Waiting on 3360 sensor mice so I can remove sidebutton switches and flush out shell where there were sidebuttons.

Something like a WMO, DM1, Kinzu, Kana, Etc. Just no side buttons. Please. Anybody. There are no mice that really fit this right now. No 3310 mice did it properly in a light format.

Also, I would love DPI option below 400 for non software including mice. Many many games don't support medium to low sensitivities at all. Games like The Division, Dying Light, Battleborn all had very high sens floors. Adding in a 200 dpi option would alleviate this problem greatly. I honestly think dpi options should be in steps of 200 rather than 400 as well. But that's just me wanting to use 600 dpi for desktop.

TBH I think that whole issue could be solved with software, but if we can't have that, different firmware sets with seperate DPI Steps could be an option. As I recall firmware flashing is an option on the DM1 right?

Aside from those ideas just keep it light and not crappy.

It would seem that DM has access to SteelSeries shapes which would mean a Kinzu clone would be wanted by the market and easy for DM to achieve.
