Side buttons are perfect on mine. They feel like the spring system to me. And the placement couldn't be better. My palm grip puts them directly above my thumb. Hats off to whomever out them there.

In the end though Logitech buttons and shape just won me over. I'll always look forward to Nixeus stuff though.

My glossy Revel's buttons are not stiffer than my Scream One or IntelliMouse Optical. Maybe the coating can increase or decrease the stiffness of the buttons.

I have the black Revel (but I also have one from the very first batch that dropped on Massdrop) and the buttons are super stiff and inconsistent, it's almost as if they're getting caught on the shell or something.

Thanks for sharing and for the detailed write up. thumb.gif

I ended up taking my revel to work only be because I found another mouse I personally prefer the shape in gaming over it. The M1 & 2 buttons didn't effect my clicking accept acoustically.

I think based on the price for 39.99 usd (if this is your shape) it's a solid high end sensor gaming mouse with a good price performance ratio which includes software to control DPI and LED lights. Look foward to future Nixeus products too.

Click's are really loud , so I can't really use it. I have the white revel and the clicks aren't that great, shape is quite good though

Personally I love this mouse, especially the mouse 1 + mouse 2 being stiffer to click on my white revel. I came to this mouse from the G403/G Pro and those mice kept accidentally clicking because of the buttons being far too light. I don't feel like there's any extra pre-travel or anything, it clicks as soon as it moves for me. Sure the mouse is loud because it's pretty hollow but I'm fine with that since the mouse is so nice and light.

The side buttons are in the perfect position for me too, but the rear of the two makes a slight creak when I press it but again, it's just a sound and doesn't bother me because I wear headphones when I game.

I'm using some different mouse feet on this mouse though, once you go hyperglide you don't go back tongue.gif .

If you open the mouse you can see if the stems are catching on the stem retainers. If that isn't the case, maybe the button piece wasn't molded properly.

Sometimes when you reassemble a mouse things can improve. However, the Revel has plastic snaps instead of a screwed on piece, which means it might not be a good to constantly take off the button piece as that could deform the plastic enough to create play between the button piece and the main shell.

Maybe in the future Nixeus can make a version 2 that fixes all the buttons, straightens out the wheel, has improved mouse feet and puts the sensor height to spec. It's not like SteelSeries has intentions to improve their Sensei.

I was always wondering, what is the purpose of stem retainers - if they're there to "guide" the stem, that'll mean contact with it, causing the behavior Alya described. If they're not in contact with stem - there is no reason for them to exist in first place. Maybe they're there to restrict vertical movement so it doesn't create too much pressure on the switch?

Maybe this can help, but if I press in the center of the button where most fingers rest (sadly not mine, mine rest more toward the scroll wheel because I have baby hands, even on the Kinzu they're super far toward the center) then it feels like it gets stuck less, but if I'm over toward the scroll wheel then it starts getting stuck (bounces back slowly) and stiff, could just be an isolated issue though.

I assume they are there to direct the stems onto the plunger of the switch and/or to stop the buttons from being pulled upward.

If the button piece rubs against the retainer it could catch or make a squeaking sound. A button design like the G900 could remove these types of issues.
