No worries, I'll just look at the G200 or whatever it will be and maybe grab a FK1+ in the meantime. Maybe my Revel won't be so bad.

Short and sweet...

Good: Shape, Size, Weight. Respectable sensor.

Bad: Feet are horrid. Clicks are...well, lets just say less than ideal.


I gotta be honest, outside of the 3360 it's a pretty "standard" mouse...and I guess the collective response to what people are currently stating in this thread is "what'd you expect?". Funnily, this mouse kinda reminds me of the feeling I had with the Rival 100. Not as far as sensor, but the overall feeling I'm left with is "I mean, it's okay...I guess."

There's not a plethora of things to complain about, nor praise. It'll definitely be in the rotation for awhile, but atm I still prefer my Abby v2 over it *shrug*

In summary, Nixeus did deliver the basics. A barebones 3360 mouse in a shape/shell that's not ridiculous. It's just rough around the edges.

I'm really not mad at Nixeus, it's not like they pulled a SteelSeries and made the same mistake they did with every other mouse they released ever, you can tell that they REALLY did try, it's just that the mouse market isn't easy to break into, especially not at a $39 ($49?) price point AND a 3360, and if nothing, at least when people ask about the Revel I can say "There was an attempt." and that's more than I can say about anything SS or FM has ever released...but I still love the Kinzu, so fight me.

What's wrong with the clicks? Do you think they could be fixed by adding new switches or is it a problem with the shell?

It's a problem with the shell that was explained earlier in this thread, there's a hole that you push the right click into to actuate the switch and there's a small piece of plastic next to it, which causes horizontal movement inside of the shell and that can cause the shell to get snagged and stuck, or it can make the right click feel very stiff.

Yeah, no shade at Nixeus at all. They seem like a great group of people with good intentions and a bright future. Nonetheless, criticism is needed in these crucial times for the betterment of the industry as a whole.

I still feel I need more time w/ the Revel to "fully" give my opinion on it. This was just a first impressions.

Ah, thanks for replying even though I neglected to look at the last few pages. I haven't had a chance to browse OCN much.

All Nixeus needs are product testers that are not affiliated at their company to test their products. Like, hiring people here on OCN, making them sign a NDA, and shipping them products and having them explain every issue internally.

This is what Logitech did with the G502 and G900 and (weight issues aside) they scored two winners. They have people test the mice before release, so they come out nice and solid. The G900 is the best mouse Logitech has ever made, rivaling their legendary mice from the MX 518 and G9x days (G9x was an awesome design, marred by acceleration issues).
Ignoring weight, the G502 was solid except for one thing--it was tilt heavy to the RIGHT, which caused issues with the underside edges scraping mouse pads if you did that. That wasn't a QA defect from cheap materials. That was just a design mistake.

I agree with you, but I don't even think people would NEED to be HIRED by Nixeus, if Peter Nixeus hit me up in PMs and said "Hey we want you to test a new mouse, would you be willing?" I'd be like "Sure." because I enjoy using mice, they're something I use daily and I've been extremely picky over the past year or so that I've been using them, and I only get more and more picky with every new mouse I buy, so I think I'd be able to offer useful feedback. I think a majority of people here would...now that I think of it, I should start doing reviews like Ino. tongue.gif

Ask Mwave to get a quote on shipping of the dm1 pro s from australia to singapore.
