a friend of mine had his update 8 hours later and got it yesterday morning after all the appropriate tracking updates.
Wow. I didn't realize shipping overseas for something that weighs less than a pound would be such a chore. I've received a replacement Castor from Mionix shipped from Sweden to California in less than a week. And Fnatic shipped me a G1 from London to California in less than a week as well. I guess internationally, customs just can't trust anything shipped from "Ze Americanz" lol.

I own both the DM1 Pro S and Revel. I can play well on both of them. They literally feel like the same mouse with a difference in side buttons. To be fair, I think both mice are worth the bang for the buck ($39.99 if you know where to shop). It boils down to the shape, size, buttons and feel. I think the sensor helps but there are so many 3310 implementations out there that seem to be just as good (like the Rival 300 for about $30-$40 w/3310 sensor) or the good 'ol G303 for $25-$30 with the 3366 (if you're lucky, you can nab a copy that does NOT have sensor rattle)

IMO no it's not hyperbole, I have a glossy and rubber so unless I was super unlucky in the QC lottery I'd say the difference is build quality is major. In terms of performance they're pretty much the same, and for a cheap mouse the revel is fine.

It's more like they're in different market segments. The revel is your entry level executive saloon with a nice engine, the dm the better mid range saloon with the same engine but an upgraded leather interior.

Our tech support and warranty contact information is on the quick start guide or warranty card that came with the mouse I think. Just make sure to re-post what you stated or experienced in the e-mail. A video showing the issue would help a lot too. Thank-you!

I'll have to second the mouse feet dragging thing - I have another unit to test here (glossy) and it appears the bottom feet in particular drag when pulled/pushed in a vertical direction on a qck+ pad.

Honestly, of all the quality control concerns, I feel like this would be the one to sort out first - you guys are going to be dinged pretty hard in reviews if a good % of people's feet aren't actually gliding well on standard gaming pads. I'm going to attempt to use some PTFE tape to fix this, but having replacement feet that don't drag would be the ideal solution.

I don't know if you guys are too fussy, if you really got a bad unit from the batch, or if I'm just not enough of a mouse guy to really find fault. It glides fine, its super light, the clicks are a bit stiff if I press closer to the center, but I think thats more of a moments idea than the revel's problem. Buttons also don't get stuck, and it feels nice to use.

And believe it or not, I don't see much difference between the revel and my EVGA X3L in terms of tracking, maybe its because of the fact that I haven't used a mouse in a week or so, but i don't see a difference.

I'd love some install-free software for the Revel. So I can customise lighting. It looks like an RGB LED inside it, so if I an make it a shade of pink at 1200dpi (I love pink as an accent colour, just need and RGB keyboard now) Adding macros and rebinding the side buttons would also be nice.

tl;dr I like the mouse, and have no issues with it so far, I'm going to jump into CoD 4 one more the try it again. Just need software for it now.

If you haven't noticed already, some of the most nitpickiest and analytical things about tech related stuff is talked about here on OCN. Hell, I'm even guilty of being overly critical about some random mouse I used.

As for the Revel, it's a no frills mouse that works just fine. If someone finds a defect here or there, RMA it or make use of the warranty. And since I own both the Revel and DM1 Pro S, I can honestly say that neither one has an advantage over each other. They're basically almost the same mouse. Aside from the side button placement, I can't tell the friggin' difference in performance in-game! gunner.gif

OCN mouse section is like the Simon Cowell or music or the Gordon Ramsay of cuisine.

I have noticed it, and while there's nothing inherently wrong with it, the vast fussiness of everyone makes it more difficult to make a choice. I was getting so worried waiting for my revel and then when I do get it, it's perfect.
I'm not used to the mouse, but that's because I'm not using my desk pad, and the pad I am using is too small. The cable is still tied up since my flight is tonight, and I'm not gripping it properly because my hands are sweaty and I don't want to mess up the mouse with sweat just yet
