Thank-you for the clarifiation - I took the firmwares offline (Google Drive) because we may have a new one for OCN soon. But if you just need the original shipping firmware I'll upload it and give you the link - just be sure to save it on your PC.

But I guess since no respond to a quote then rip Nixeus biggrin.gif

I apologize.

That is up to Amazon UK/EU - not us. Amazon UK handles the shipping and we have no control on where to ship to specific regions/countries. They only allow us to make the REVEL available for particular regions at this time.

That is weird since most sellers on Amazon UK ship to Sweden, always thought it was the seller to decide.
But thanks for the answer smile.gif

YES! Unpatched Windows 7 too thinking.gif

It's worth noting that I actually had two separate dpi bugs coming out of sleep. I think I remember there being a third, but I can't remember what it was, so whatever; two.

The first one was the rubber-banding dpi, where it just fluctuates back and forth between high and low dpi very quickly, often within the same mouse movement.

The second one was where it was stuck on the 'red' setting, but was not 400 dpi. If I remember correctly it was also fluctuating between two high dpi steps, but much less frequently than in the first issue. This could be the third issue I'm thinking of. Attempting to cycle the dpi steps did not resolve the issue, but unplugging/re-plugging the mouse did.

Just in case it wasn't obvious, this is with the beta firmware that was posted here, which I installed as soon as I plugged the mouse in for the first time.

It might also be worth noting that I have the sweetlow USB drivers installed for my WMO, and the last time I patched windows 7 was probably summer/fall of 2015. Dunno if that would affect anything at all, but I figured i'd toss it out there.

Maybe I'll find an older laptop I have and test on an unpatched 7 myself.

For people experiencing this issue - I'll be posting on this thread on how to claim a free set this week or next week when they arrive.

Thank-you for your patience. thumb.gif

Yay! Oh, and I'd also like to say, I recently bought the new Logitech mice, and after giving them both a fair shake... I returned them and am continuing to use the Revel biggrin.gif

Same here bro, I have the dm1 pro s, g pro, rival 300, rival 100, fk2, fk1, za13, ec2a, asus sica, and a bunch of other gaming mice.

the revel is the best one hands down.. getting another one soon so i never have to worry about buying mice again.

oh and if nixeus ever make a smaller one (kinzu shape) with the same internals, I'll be broke from buying too many. (Please Peter)

by the way for people experiencing scratching problems and can't get ms3.0 feet or something, you can do what i did and use your finger nails to press the edges hard so they are lower than the center of the feet.

you need to press the very edge of the mouse feet with the tip of your fingernail and go around them so all of the boundaries of the feet are lower than the center.

It worked fine on my revel, waiting for ms3 hyperglides to come, then I'll use those instead as I'm used to their glide.

What didn't you like about the DM1 Pro S?

I'm not maddada, but my DM1 Pro S had a hair trigger RMB and a sticky LMB. Otherwise it was fine. I think it's semi luck of the draw on either to get perfect buttons, but, I have not heard of a Revel user ever getting a hair trigger button, only sticky ones that can be fixed by opening it and sanding just a bit.

It's exactly the same clicks and sensor feeling as the revel.. there are a lot of differences though..

Shape is very different between the 2, and I love the revels's shape way more since it's very close to the kana's shape, which is my favorite shape:
(personal opinion, so it won't apply for you unless you don't like the sensei shape, and like kana/xai/kinzu better)

DM 1 has a bigger hump than the revel, which I don't like.
The grip width is wider on the dm1 s, sides are mostly flat, which wasn't the best for me since it made me have to stretch my ring finger to the right more, width of the revel feels perfect however since the sides of the revel slope inwards, revel feels really close to the kana in shape while the dm1 is bigger (so get the dm1 if you like the sensei shape or bigger mice in general).
Also the back sides curve of the dm1 is more pronounced on the dm1 (like the sensei) while the revel has a straighter curve. (I'm taking about the curve that's on both sides, which makes the mouse fatter at the back and thinner at the front)
Btw, I asked some family members to close their eyes and tell me which they felt was smaller and they all said the revel was noticably less wide and had a lower hump.

side buttons are more towards the back on the revel, which makes hitting mouse 4/5 really easy, on the dm1 I have to move my thumb to reach mouse5, m4 is easy to reach though.

scroll has more pronounced steps on the revel and feels great ingame and out, never had any problems bhopping with it, and it never missed a step on me, feels really good (same with the dm1 but that one doesn't stop on each step like the revel does).
m3 is a bit harder to click on the revel, but it's alright on both of them (i use it for ptt without issue)
btw just wanted to say screw zowie and their trash mouse wheels, revel's steps aren't as harsh as the zowie ones.

feet that came with dm1 are perfect out of the box, while the ones on the revel were scratching a bit when pushing it down hard, so i used my finger nail to go around the edges and push them all down hard and now only the center part of the feet touches the mousepad, so they don't scratch at all.

cable is usable on both (unlike the gpro's which is 100% unusable for me), but i really like the da13's cable since it feels light, it's thinner than all other braided cables i've seen, and can be kept off the mousepad very easily with my razer bungee ziptied above a 3.5" harddisk.
so i have a couple of da13 cables that i put in all my main mice.

only things I'd change about the revel would be:
reduce the weight a bit (♥70g, going to look for a way to lower the weight later, but it's great as is) (already removed the back lighting plastic piece and the dpi button since i never change dpi off 400, and if you misclick it you have to go through 11 dpi steps to get back to your original dpi.

also i woulduse standard sized mousefeet (isn't a big deal since ms3.0 feet fit fine)

note:
I actually had to open my dm1 pro s and cut a bit of the button shell on both lmb/rmb.
my lmb was getting fully stuck everytime i sprayed in csgo, but after fixing the shell the buttons were both perfect.

The lmb/rmb feel different on all the mice i have with omron 7N 20million clicks.. but that's how it is with factories producing millions of micro switches.. that's why I ordered 25 pieces off ebay and I'll solder two that feel similar/better on the revel, although the clicks that came with the mouse are alright as is, maybe I'll find 2 that feel better not sure.
(lmb and rmb on my Logitech gpro and da chroma/13 are all different and they use the same switch as the revel)

(wrote this at 4am on my phone, sorry about any writing errors)

also sorry for the wall of text i have a quiz tomorrow and I'm doing my best not to study..

Okay, this mouse has some serious potential. It's my first time with the sensei shape. I had a G403 come in yesterday and have been using the Mionix Naos 7000 for 1.5 years. I literally picked up this mouse, hopped into osu!, and was playing up to my regular speed almost immediately. No transitioning time for me. Holy cow. The G403 had a day of usage and I'm still not quite 100% used to it yet.

G403 vs Revel. Ugh. I love the revel shape but the G403 buttons are definitely better.

First glossy mouse in a long time too and I think I like it better than my matte/rubberized mice.

Mouse feet only seem to scratch if I put a lot of pressure on the back of the mouse while moving up/down.

Pictures and more thoughts coming later. This is definitely a winner, especially at $40 if you snag it on massdrop.

//edit: I got used to the m1/m2 buttons. m4/m5 are a bit too light and mushy for my taste. However, I'm in love with the shape. G403 is going back in its box.

Pics later today.
