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.

All companies should have feedback groups which are not, and have not, been communicating with the company in question. Problem is most people are not very good at detecting, expressing and analyzing the information they take in properly.

Suspiciously the DM1 pro S also apparently changing the switches in the last second. IDK how the DM1 pro S would not suffer from the same issue as the Revel if it's using the same shell. Hopefully they pay attention to this thread lol.

Edit: Well nevermind, the DM1 uses a different looking shell, don't know the same or different manufacturer. I haven't followed the DM1 at all, but I figured they were made by the same manufacturer just re-tooled. Sorry for my assumption.

Thread Starter 
I realize the more technical reviews will be incoming, so this is preliminary thoughts for those looking to hear from member reaction regarding the revel.

The Nixeus Revel looks like a fusion of savu LED implementation that meets sensei shape. A white glossy finish with black matte sides that looks sharp IMO and feels nice under the palm. Coming from ZA12 with raised rear hump to revel lower back and longer length it was an easy transition holding palm or hybrid-palm grips. Where the hump filled my palm on 12, the revel compensates in length when it lays down more. I insta-liked the shape and feel of the 85g body. No hours of trying to get used to it. It felt comfy but I have not gamed long hours with it yet.

Next time around I'd suggest LED that turn off after 3seconds once you've found and stop scrolling through the CPI steps. Without way to control which color you see on your desktop it may clash on favorite CPI step or you don't want lights on a mouse at all, it's an aesthetic faux pas.

Clicks 1 & 2 don't sound exactly the same but a lot of perfectly fine mice don't as well. It has deeper "sounding" clicks than the huanos in my ZA12 but lighter to actuate naturally being omrons. My buttons do not get stuck or feel sticky when depressed not sure what QC issues others might be having. Mine are perfectly fine.

Side buttons sit slightly higher out and feel a bit mushy but have been placed nicely out of the way. No accidental clicking.

Kudos on non-braided cord. It was flexible and easy to run through the cord to ply out and straighten the kinks from being stored in the box.

What can I say about the mouse feet except I'm not thrilled. I feel they're a bit too thin and perhaps sized a bit too small. Then again I find the same situation with mice that I have spent $150 on as well. Means little to me as I replace all my mice feet. The first company that comes out with skates featuring hyper glides, corepads or hotline games already included will be a winner.

When I slide the mouse on G-SRDG or Otsu the top skate seem to drag and get caught up. The back end of the mouse continues forward motion where the top end stop in its tracks for no reason while I have no tension on the cord. I need higher skates to get the body more off the mat and waiting to see if anyone confirms which other mouse feet might work.

I only spent an hour tonight playing casually before thinking, "If only the G900 had revel shape, weight and glossy body OR the revel had the quality scroll wheel and switch implementation of G900 I'd be holding my last mouse".

Didn't play enough, like all day, to get a good feel of sensor. Work will keep me from real time with this mouse until Saturday. I plan on keeping this on my desk for 30 days. I feel with a lot of mice you don't really get the full picture until you stop thinking about it and as you acclimate to it for a while in different scenarios.

At $39.99 mass drop price, it's very worthy of a budget gaming mouse when you look at similarly priced mice on the market.

Now to get some sleep.

Honest question, why are people constantly saying they're the same shell, from the same factory, etc?
They're both sensei clones and were released at the same time, but the side button placement is different, hump isn't at the same place, leds are different, DPI switch isn't the same shape, the wheel is different too. From the internal pics they're nothing alike.
Am I the only one to notice these things or is there something I'm not aware of?
I mean, it's pretty obvious the DM1 is a rebranded motospeed v16, but is there conclusive info about the revel yet?

Revel using 20m Omrons, 3360, and a Holtek MCU is enough for me to guess that they're using a SIMILAR (not same) PCB, you can tell this because there's minor switch differences, the Revel is using a different switch for the middle click than DM, and if DM stuck with the DM1 shell then the shells are different and the DM1 should be able to take Sensei feet, while the Revel cannot.

I'm still looking forward to giving it a thorough testing, although that both button designs judging from the pictures look very underwhelming, especially the side-buttons.
That looks even worse than what Zowie does on the EC series and those are the worst side buttons I ever experienced.
I'll see on Monday I guess.

I could do that, but im afraid that I could end up playing a lot more for shipping and the total cost would end up being a lot more.

The side button design is both good and bad to me. It's good because they use a standard 2 pin switch which is easily replacable compared to the DM1's elevated switches. It's bad because all the mice that have that same button design suffer from not very good feeling clicks with plenty of pre-travel i.e. IE3, Zowie EC series, DM2 etc.

Edit: Mine is currently flying over the Atlantic biggrin.gif
