I remember seeing people right here on OCN saying it was better to buy the Nixeus than to pay extra for the same mouse at DreamMachines. I wonder how they feel now?

To those with dragging feet, how exactly does that feel?

The main design 'flaw' as far as I'm concerned is the stiff m3, which doesn't bother me but I know will bother some.

The shape, well, it's OK, still too much of a 'wedge'. I prefer higher mouse buttons, like DA, WMO, FM2015.

Rest would be incremental improvements. Software, sides are bare plastic, buttons can use a bit more 'sharpness' and less stiff, still don't like the blinking lights...

The lighting position is ideal for me. Just need to make my 1200dpi step magenta or something of the sort.

After playing Overwatch and WoW this pass 2 days with the mouse, I've decided to go back to to my FK1. The difference in the feeling of the LMB and RMB is really annoying. The LMB is much stiffer to press compaired to the RMB and the feet dragging on my pad is a big no go. Other then this 2 issues the mouse is otherwise perfect.

Maybe when these issues are sorted we early adopters could get a RMA?

Just fired mine up and figured I'd join the impressions party. I'll mostly be comparing between this and the Roccat KPM I've been using for a while.

Putting the Revel in my hand, I have a hard time differentiating it between a stock office mouse. It looks and feels unimpressive. The LED peeks out of the gaps between the shell and side buttons which feel like they're attached the mouse with the flimsiest piece of plastic they could find. The primary clicks are unimpressive, but not bad or hindering in any way. They work, and that's all they need to do .The wheel is much the same: it works, but can't touch the KPM, which has the best wheel and best build quality/materials I've ever seen in a mouse. The Revel's glide is sufficient. In fact, that's the word I'd use to describe the feel of the mouse overall; sufficient, whereas the KPM felt excellent. Nixeus is an American company, and Roccat is German: these mice, in terms of feel, are a Ford and a BMW respectively.

The shape is good. It's the Sensei shape obviously, and shape preference is purely subjective so I won't say much about it. I'll say that I have no problems with Nixeus' implementation of the shape: no weird gaps, no sharp edges against my hand, it works. I got the glossy variant, and it sticks well to my hand, which is the one place the Revel beats the KPM I can't tell which shape I prefer between this and the KPM, but they both work for me - 19cm hands, fingertip-ish claw grip.

So if I drew my verdict here, I'd stick with the KPM. It just feels better in practically every aspect. But the thing is, when I get in-game, I don't care how cheap the mouse feels. I'm not focusing on that, I just need it to become an extension of my brain.

The performance of this mouse is superb. The 3360 sensor is great , the click latency is fine, the clicks themselves feel fine enough to not distract me, and the side buttons don't get in the way - which is good because they are light. The Revel itself is also light, and like I said before, glides fine and sticks to my hand well, so swiping the mouse feels natural. I forget all about the cheapness and just hit shots, because there's nothing about this mouse that prevents me from doing that. It works. It's sufficient, and I can't really complain.

So yeah, it looks cheap, feels cheap, but goes like a bat out of hell when you fire up a game. In a previous post, I compared it to a Corvette, and I stand by that. It doesn't have all the refinement of a BMW or Ferrari, but it's got one hell of an engine and won't do anything to hold you back. Sure, the dash is plastic and the panel gaps spark memories of the nether regions of that cheap hooker your buddies hired to finish off your 21st birthday party, but when you put your foot down, the thing just goes, and that's all I really need it to do.

Agreed. If you value in-game performance above all-else, there isn't a better mouse at $40. I think if they came out with a higher-end edition for $10 more with upgraded materials/functions, it'd hit the sweet spot.

I actually just got done talking through one of their representatives through email. His name was Josh. Overall, he was really nice, and I told him about some of the issues that I and others in the community were experiencing, namely the feet dragging and the odd mouse clicks. He sent me an email attatchment so that I can ship the mouse back without paying for shipping and he asked if he could open the mouse up when it got there so he could test it out and replicate the issues I was experiencing. Overall, he was very cordial. I think that Nixeus really is trying here and from what I've read there are people here that haven't had these issues, so if that's the case, then it is just a QC problem. Time will tell when I get my replacement back if it has the same issues or not. Overall, I really think that they have something special here. The main reason I wanted to support this one instead of the DM1 S was the rubber cord. When I get my replacement mouse I'll make sure to come back and tell you guys if it's still having issues or not.

Please do. To me the mark of a good company is not making no mistakes, but fixing mistakes when you do make them.
We had Hype in the Revel, and in the Moda keyboards, and I also grabbed their Arc BT speaker, and the presentation there was good, so I want to see them make things right with those who have QC issues.

I wish Mionix and Fnatic would do the same. The Castor hasn't had a firmware update (or any kind of fix to address the click latency issue) since November 2015! And Fnatic hasn't released any support or firmware update on their G1 to address the sensor jitter and LOD issues. Mionix makes great mice but it's not all about the craftsmanship. How about some customer support? thumb.gif

I saw so many people complaining about that. While I still want and probably will buy a Flick G1, and I am not fussy about LOD or jitter (I played CoD happily with an Anker mini mouse) adjusting LOD and low jitter are characteristics of the 3310 sensor from what I understand. It really should be a part of the mouse software package

So after using my Revel some more, the LMB has developed some horizontal wiggle and it now rubs/catches against the plastic as other people have experienced.
