SkyDigital NKEY 007 mini Mouse - Page 12

post #111 of 130
Thanks to the low weight, with hyperglides, the glide on this mouse is amazing. The clicks suck though, LMB is ok, but RMB is hard to double-click or spam. How much of an improvement is changing the switches to Omrons? And how difficult is it to switch out the buttons, I've never soldered before.

I ordered this mouse two weeks ago from gmarket and it came with rubberized cable instead of rough braided one. Pleasant surprise! So you might get lucky as well if you don't want to bother with the cable replacement.

What ! Where did you order it from exactly? Can you give us the link ?

I have a spare G007 with paracord, Omrons D2FC-F-K(50m) and Hyperglides installed and I'm willing to sell it for someone who doesn't have the ability to mod it by himself or just doesn't want to wait forever for shipping from Asia. PM me if interested.

Mine had a rubber cable too, I got it from: http://item2.gmarket.co.kr/English/detailview/item.aspx?goodscode=957396416

The mouse is excellent in terms of raw performance. The g007 has a low lift off distance (which can be adjusted to your liking to a degree), low speed relatated accuracy varience (from feel, I apologise for not having quantitative results QQ), lacks noticeable jitter, smoothing, angle snapping (prediction), and any sort of major sensor or button delay. It has a decent max tracking speed (I never ran into an issue in game and play at appoximately 38cm/180°). There is also no lens rattle which is quite surprising considering a lot of other high end gaming mice do suffer from lens rattle (it could also be that my copy was a good copy). This is true to any mouse that has a 3330, 336x or a mercury sensor so it is expected that the g007 performs well. The performance should be good enough unless you want a mouse that can track diagionals like a mouse with a mlt04 (honestly, the max perfect tracking speed is too low on the mlt04, I don't understand how low-very low sensitivity gamers like the sensor at all).

Although this is up for debate, the scroll wheel is not bad (tactile and somewhat smooth but it still isn't an ALPS) and although middle click is not stiff, it isn't light either. The left mouse button requires more force than the right mouse button but most mice tend to have this issue (due to switch varience) and if it is a big deal to anyone reading, the switches can be replaced fairly easily. Nevertheless, the main buttons are better than Zowie's in opinion as the main buttons feel somewhat crisp with not a lot of pre travel. (due to the shell construction and a different type of huano switch being used. The nkey mouse uses blue shell white dot huanos which has been mentioned before). The buttons are not as nice as mice that have good seperate main buttons such as the g303 or rival 310 as the g007 main mouse buttons are not as light but opinons will differ. The dpi button is definitely out of the way which is good for me. However, people who like to change cpi frequently, the location of the cpi button is not ideal. The mouse also has a back button on the top of the mouse which feels ok at best but it is somewhat easy to press although a lot of mice have better buttons for forwards and backwards page nagivation (I am not sure how to describe the back and forwards buttons concisely).

To my surprise, the rubber cable is a lot better than most braided cables. I do not have experience with previous versions of the Nkey g007 but the cable isn't super stiff like the braided cable (as some are saying about the nkey g007 braided cable). The rubber cable is not as flexible as a zowie rubber cable or CeeSA's paracord but it is usable.

I do not understand what was going through the designers brains(I assume Sky Digital have a team creating products) when they thought having poor quality teflon feet with a small width to apply after market teflon feet was a good idea.
They could of went with circular cut outs and have circular teflon feet or make the surface area for teflon feet larger.
The teflon piece (feet) on the mouse do not even glide properly and it feels like I am dragging my mouse across sand paper. I wish mouse companies started using ceramic mouse feet but pure teflon like Hyperglides or Corepad (or any teflon which is white in colour) could also be a good alternative. This mouse has the worst mouse feet I've ever used and I did make sure there is no plastic sheet on the teflon feet. It feels like changing the mouse feet is a requirement. See previous post from other users on this thread to find out which mouse feet fit in the cut out on the bottom on the mouse but I think it was any mx 510/ mx 518 replacement that worked.

Sky Digital did create a solid mouse which feels well built despite being 70 grams. I know that higher mass=/= higher build quality but I am still surprised that the Nkey g007 feels better than a ec2-a or a death adder or even a steel series kana v2 despite the g007 being a lot cheaper than the mice I just mentioned. The mouse doesn't sqeak or creek when squeezed, it has no lens rattle as mentioned above and has a surface texture which I find average at best but it get the job done. It doesn't feel like soap unlike the ec2-a when one has dry hands so I guess it works. It won't feel as good as the texture on the minoix castor or as the texture on the rocatt kone pure military.

The software is kind of sluggish but it does allow the user to access a multitude of features such as adjusting lift off distance (MANUALLY, thank you sky digital for not going with 'surface tuning' which may cause issues), double click sensivitiy, rgb light adjustment, changing the function on each button on the mouse, etc. The software is clearly not as good as Logitech's but it isn't as bad as Razer's (never again will I have Synapes installed in my pc for more than 20 minutes).

Static lighting is good but it seems to have a poor gradient when going from one colour to the next which is a shame but it does not effect the mouse performance in any way so it isn't the end of the world. If lights bother you, the software allows a user to turn off the lights which is good.

The shape of the mouse is great in my opinion as it doesn't have angles which could be mistaken as a Transformers mouse and anyone with small to medium hands looking for a zowie mico replacement will be happy. The shape (flat sides and thin profile, just the way I like it ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ) is safe but the mouse is small so one might want to look up the diamentions of the mouse before buying (I am 99.99% sure that anyone knows what they want in a mouse though).

The mouse rating I give it overall is 80% as the performance, shell construction and shape are very good but if one were to operate simple modifications on the mouse like changing the microswitch, cable to a CeeSA paracord, razer or zowie cable, chang the mechanical scroll wheel encoder, and change the mouse feet, it will deserve a 94% or above rating. If one is wondering, I am using the g007 as my main mouse for csgo, osu, torixkk or any game that is competitive).

If anyone wants to, providing constructive criticism is definitely welcomed (as it always should).

Any mouse designers looking to make a mouse to market as something superior to the Nmouse 4k. Being vastly disappointed in the 007, I probably will have to look to another company for future mice. The postives that made the 4k so great...

- Stiff clicks that actuate easily and fast.
- Low sensor postition.
- Polling rate overclockable to 4000hz
- Click latency that is competitive with documented mice.

LOLOLL low sensr and 4000hz XD

I am not sure if you can actually overclock the polling rate to 4k hz but I would think anything beyond 1000 hz or even 500 hz is kind of pointless or I am unaware of the benefits and if I am unaware, I am wrong. The nmouse 4k and g007 are also very different in shape in that the nmouse 4k is more like a g100s whereas g007 is more like a zowie mico. Input latency is probably not that important as both mice do not have a lot of input latency unlike old Zowie mice or Ozone.
