Nixeus REVEL [It's here!] - Page 50

post #491 of 2315
I'm on my 3rd day gaming with this mouse. It's not as bad as people say it is (at least for my copy). I've accepted the fact that the side buttons are overly sensitive where I have nothing binded to them in-game. My LMB and RMB buttons feel okay. Compared to my DM1 Pro (non-S), the buttons on the Revel are quite pleasantly tactile but not overly stiff. They feel just about right. I guess 3 days worth of spamming both M1 and M2 buttons was enough to "break in" the mouse. Is it something that I'll use over my G303 that I paid less money for? Probably not. But overall, it's not that bad. QC issues aside, the mouse is okay. Just because my copy of any given mouse has a QC issue, doesn't mean everyone has the same issue. I'm pretty sure if data analytics for each mouse manufacturer were displayed, the less than 5% who do have a defective mouse are usually the most vocal about it and go onto reviewers' forums or places like....

Mines stuck in some kind of limbo.

Also, it's shipped via USPS. Canada posts keeps the same tracking number. USPS says it's arrived in Canada, Canada post still says it's in the US.

Probably held up in customs or one of the sorting centers.

Most likely, but I've had many things come from the states via USPS and never had something like this happen so far, I mean the guy from Signapore got his first and I'm in the neighbor country to USA ¬_¬

Kinda weird, but customs in Singapore are quite eazy

All right, first impressions, since I'm at work.

As usual, I got worried over nothing. None of the issues encountered so far. Everything feels, 'good'. Not outstanding, but perfectly fine.

LMB / RMB remind me of my FM, not crisp like 303 or FK1, I'd say actuation and force about middle ground too. Not FK1, but not super light either. Click sounds are on the loud side.

Wheel is OK, notchy but precise, not loud, better more precise than Zowies. No wheel rattle or wobble. WMB hard to press. Similar to FK1 which has a stiff wheel mouse button. but I never use it. People used to easy WMB will probably not like it.

Side buttons are OK too., and also on the loud side. Best I've used are my FK1, crisp, a little bit stiff, which is what I prefer (no accidental press). Side buttons much better than the FM, which are terrible, but still serviceable. Buttons aren't really in my way, access is OK, again similar to FK1.

Cable reminds me of Zowies, bit thicker, flexible.

Light is a 'breath' effect. Not sure why, not a fan, but don't care really. Yellow for me (1600 dpi).

Texture is rubbery, reminds me of FM texture. Fine by me.

Feet, well, I have no issues on my Goliathus Speed. They don't bite, or get in the way like some people mentioned.

Shape reminds me of a fatter Zowie FK1, maybe closer to a FK1+, ZA12 (never tried one, but I have a ZA11). Still not quite what I'd consider perfect, but better than ergo FM (stupid thumb groove) and FK (shaped like a anorexic skunk).

Cursor / tracking / feel, well I must say it feels really good out of the box. Dunno if subjective or whatever, but I prefer it to the FK1. Feels lighter, maybe better ergonomics, lower weight. Feels good anyway. Will try some Overwatch later this evening.

So all in all, it's a mouse, it's got buttons you can press, and you can move a cursor on the screen. Nothing bad to report, but really, it's all about the sensor, at this stage.

Overall, It's not outstanding, No really annoying flaw (stiff WMB, I guess for some people). Mostly interested in sensor, button stiffness, wheels, cable never really bothered me.

Would I recommend? Would I buy again? Given my model, yes. Sensor, first impression feels great, the rest is solid, it's light, it's not that expensive. I prefer it over Zowie's offerings.

Next, the DM1 Pro S. From what I read, it's a little 'better' overall, but it's a really good first try with no obvious problems and a great sensor.

Mine from woot has arrived this morning. I'll give initial thoughts later.

That's what mine said, but I got the usual post office card come through like with anything I get from massdrop about paying the customs fee. If you haven't received the card yet call your local collection office and they should have it.

Edit: To give some first thoughts it's not a bad product, but I got my dm 1 pro s the same time and the difference in quality is like night and day sadly.
