Mine is arriving today. Is there an easy solution to the mouse feet drag problem? Just cut off the sticker label? If it's anything more complicated than that, I'm just going to not open it and ask for a refund or resell it.

It's 2016 and nobody can design a perfect mouse still. I remember complaining about this in 2004.

Oh and what's the native DPI setting to use on this mouse?

You just said yourself that it's 2016, it's native in steps of 100 DPI, avoid using over (or equal to) 2100 DPI because it enables more smoothing.

So I got it.

Shape: I can live with it. It's good. This is just experimentation for me since my previous mouse was the Saphira which had a higher arch in the middle, but I seem to do okay with this.

Sensor: Amazing.

Build quality: Feels loose. LMB clicks shake the whole mouse when you're clicking frequently in the middle of the action. RMB seems a little less loose. They are stiffer than what I'd expect, but I seem to be okay with it for now.

The sticker was a little off-center in the bottom, but on my unit it was over the top edge, so I smoothed it out as best I could. I don't feel much, if any, drag when moving around in the middle of the pad (I'm a wrist-centric high sensitivity FPS player so I don't cover a lot of distance), but if I approach the edge of the pad, particularly where there's even a slightly uneven surface to the desk below (on my desk, that would be the bottom edge), I can clearly feel the drag like the feet or sticker are caught on the mouse pad. I use a Puretrak Stealth.

I can live with the rickety buttons but I'd really like some aftermarket hyperglide-like feet for it to make it smoother on the pad (if you're a low sens player, I think you'd absolutely need to do something about the feet and sticker on the bottom). You don't notice the rickety-ness of the buttons if you're not clicking hard and rapidly (like lining up shots in a casual 1v1 in QL, harder to notice... clicking frantically in a more stressful match or a more chaotic game, then easy to notice the whole thing sounds loose and shakes).

I used to game at 1600dpi on the old A3090 in the Saphira. 1600dpi on this is a little more sensitive than 1600dpi on that one. I set it at 2000 dpi and adjusted in-game sens accordingly. I use 3200 in Windows (corresponding to 3500 on the Saphira).

Man... this sensor is reeeaaallly nice to make up for all the shortcomings. It's a big jump for me coming from the A3090.

Hey Nixeus, if you guys improve the build quality, can we get a discount on a newer version?

Honestly, if build quality is as subpar as everyone seems to be indicating in these reviews (I'll find out later tonight), I don't think offering a full refund (or replacement if QC is solved) would be unreasonable for dissatisfied customers, assuming they want to maintain a good reputation.

so mine just came in a few hours, and I really like it, mine doesn't have any quality control issues such as poor glide, uneven mouse buttons, or rattling. This is replacing my G303.

Things I like:

-Light
-Better shape than G303
-The cord is normal and not braided (thank you Nixeus)
-Lighting is very subtle (which is good since there is no disabling it)

Things I don't like:

-The mouse buttons are not visibly obvious, meaning you don't know when they begin or end. I accidentally knifed someone in CSGO because I didn't know my fingers were resting on the button (I always used to wonder how it was possible for people to accidentally do this, now I know)

I would guess I got lucky with mine.

The only quality control issue with mine would be that the right click has one small part where if I push down, it creaks every so slighty, but it won't do it anywhere else, but with my luck, it's exactly where my ring finger hovers.

Aside from that, the mouse glides fine on my QCK+, sticker is cut perfectly, left click is fine, sensor is fine. I mean, I wouldn't mind a replacement just to fix the right click issue, but it wouldn't bother me to not get one. I do agree that some people who have really bad problems should probably get replacements from a new batch.
