[OCN Labs] Nixeus Revel Gaming Mouse Review - by Ino - Page 6

post #51 of 97
Small update: mouse2 stopped working today - it would click but not register so I had to take it apart and resolder the connection. When I did that I took some pics. Solder looks like crap as I re-soldered 4 times.

There's much to be said about a $49.99 mouse that you have to take apart yourself, do a little customization and what not just to get it to work properly. Your time and effort to do so doesn't seem to justify the price. It's like buying a brand new car where you end up fixing the engine the second you drive it home.

What are you talking about? The mouse works perfectly, I was just bored and soldered on different switches for a different click feel. A real analogy would be buying a car and screwing in a different shifter stick or getting different rims as replacing the engine would be akin to replacing the sensor.

The mouse has been working wonderfully for me since I've plugged it in. It's comfort and sensor has made me wonder how I spent so much time using the G303 before it. If it wasn't for the G Pro I would have kept this as my daily driver for sure.

So if the mouse buttons are NOT a major part of a mouse (like an engine is to a car), then what are? The ONLY time I have to take apart a mouse is if the damn buttons are sticking or the RMB feels way off than the LMB. Unless the only posts you are reading are your own, you'll find that this thread has quite a few HONEST experiences of how this mouse is for them.

Comfort I can understand, but sensor? how does that play into making you question why you used the 303 for so long?

I meant comfort more than anything when I said that. The fact that they have (nearly) identical sensors made the decision very easy to switch.

I think you misunderstood the issue. He modded the mouse before he had any issues, and the m2 buttons stopped working because of the mod he did. see below:

edit: resoldered them and removed the underlay paper and squeezed them real hard so they would be as close as possible and now it works ^^
