Nixeus REVEL [It's here!] - Page 97

post #961 of 2438
How is the pre-travel on m1 and m2 buttons? Every mouse has a lot of it or just some?
post #962 of 2438
Pretravel is extremely minimal on mine. The switches are just stiffer than I'm used to(haven't tried Zowies yet, though).


Impressions after a day of usage! Also doing a picture dump in this post.

Box front. Pretty nice looking package, but a bit cringe on the words in the bottom right corner.


Box back.


What's included.


A closeup of the mousefeet. I have to put down a good amount of pressure if I want them to scratch the mousepad.


Comparison shots. G403 | Revel | Naos. G403 is by far the tallest one.


Top view.


Side shot.


When I took it out of the box, I noticed that it fit surprisingly well with my keyboard! If I had my Nixeus Moda V1 still, this would be a dope nixeus peripheral setup.


Cable comparison. The Revel has a flexible rubber cable. I think it's a bit grippy and holds its shape too well. It doesn't really bother me during gameplay though. It is around the same size as my Naos' braided cable.


I'm in love with the shape. It's smaller than both the G403 which I was testing earlier this week and the Mionix Naos 7000 which has been my daily driver for quite some time now. I'm able to extremely easily pick up and move the mouse. Having a light mouse is a very nice change from the relatively heavy Naos. It feels like I'm in a lot more control. The glossy white model was cheaper than the black, so I picked it up. My previous experience with glossy mice wasn't great, but the white doesn't really show any sweat or fingerprint marks. It's also super grippy which is awesome.

I used this mouse on 1200 dpi. The light has a super slow breathing effect, and only illuminates the butt and the logo of the mouse.

osu! tracking was spot on. Within 15 minutes of usage, I was doing better than both the G403 and the Naos 7000. It simply felt more comfortable during gameplay. Spinners are a bit different with the changed weight, but other than that it's lovely.

FPS games took a little bit longer. The Nixeus has very, very different buttons than I'm accustomed to. The Revel has a cheaper-feeling m1/m2 click. The click is a lot harder to press, and it doesn't seem to have as much overall travel when compared to my Naos. It is indeed a bit harder to spam-click on the Revel. I can still successively click faster on both the Naos and the G403. On the plus side, my middle finger never accidentally clicks m2, which it does on basically every other mouse I've used. The m1/m2 buttons are also quite loud. The mouse shell sounds empty and as a result the click of the switches sound pretty cheap.

The mouse wheel isn't as smooth scrolling as the G403, but it's still good overall. Scrolling is louder than my Naos and the G403. Steps are nicely defined and there's no scroll wheel rattle at all. Mouse3 has a surprising amount of movement when clicked in. It's easier to click than the G403, likely due to the overall lower mouse wheel positioning. No issues with clicking Mouse3. I do hope that switch holds up over time though, since the only switch to really fail on me was also a "YSA" switch. I am quite liberal with my Mouse3 usage so having a better quality switch would be nice.

Side buttons. They're small and squishy. They have some feedback, but there's a lot of post-travel and it simply gets soft after the button actuation. I wish there was some seperation or indentation between the two buttons like the G403 or the Naos. I would also prefer them to have a tiny bit farther forward, but I can still hit both consistently as is.

Here's a quick sound test I recorded:
Overall, the shape and the sensor is what really won me over on this mouse. Tracking is superb and I couldn't get it to spin out when doing the "slam" test(pmw3310 on my naos could spin out if I did this). I have slowly gotten used to the heavier clicks, and don't really have issues when using them in game now. The G403 had some amazing clicks, but its shape didn't sync with me like the Revel did.

For $40-$50, this is one heck of a mouse. As long as it holds up over time, it'll be an easy recommendation for me if you are looking for a performance mouse without a ridiculous price.

I too may stick with the Revel after my G403 testing period is up.
post #964 of 2438
I'm getting this mouse tomorrow to try out. Are there replacement feet available anywhere? At first glance, it looked like you could use sensei ones since it uses a similar shell, but looking closer, the revel's seem to be a little smaller.

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..

Hehe, that's what i also like doing. Just abstrakt myself from studying stuff. biggrin.gif

Very nice and detailed write up! Didn't know the Revel is so much different from the DM1 shape wise. Oo
Thanks! +rep

Yep, feeling that way as well. G403 shape just feels awkward. Comfortable, but not like anything I am used to.

No feet available yet, but some of the smaller Hyperglide models could work. Nixeus releasing feet soon.

Got my Nixeus Revel today, loving it so far.
A bit of scratching so I may just replace the feet later.
Cable is really nice, IMO.
Could do without the breathing L.E.D but that's not really a 'real' issue, though.
Scroll wheel isn't unusable like the DM1 Pro S was for me. YMMV.

Double check your mouse feet to see if there is a clear thin plastic tape covering the feet - if there is peel it off to see if the scratching still occurs.


I just received confirmation the replacement mouse feet are coming in on Monday for people experiencing scratching issues to get to replace their existing ones.


I'll post on how to claim a free set no later than Monday.

Our new replacement mouse feet has a thin clear plastic covering the bottom of the teflon feet - so be sure to peel it off after installing it.

Hey there, thanks for the response! thumb.gif

I actually purchased my Revel from Amazon.. Does this mean that because there is no little film covering the feet that it's possible I've gotten a used one? sadsmiley.gif

If that's the case, I'll just return it and purchase it from your site.

It means that yours has the original feet, not the new feet nixeus are going to give for free to those who have problems with them, like you and me drunken.gif
