I got me the Diamondback 3G in red. Tape fix made LOD almost as low as AM and dpi feels like the 800dpi are more like 600dpi now (maybe a second layer of tape will make it 400dpi).
Shape is pretty good, but I find AM is more comfortable. I bought this more of sentimental reasons, because I used an old blue Diamondback ages ago for many years and wanted to see again how this mouse is. It surely is one of the most good looking mice I've tried.
One thing I hate is the cord, way to stiff. Zowie's cord is really the best.
The click feels and sounds stiff, but is actually relatively light compared to the AM. The wheel is really nice, firm and the scroll is very silent (I expect it to start squeaking soon though). One thing I permanently hate about my AM, even more than the stiff buttons, is the very loud and unsmooth wheel scroll.However, unfortunetely I wasn't lucky and it has a wheelbug (one click, opens two tabs). I guess there is no way to fix it?
All in all, I think the AM is a better mouse, more comfortable and better sensor performance (under the right conditions that is; black mousepad, etc) and much better cord (you don't feel it, you don't hear it, almost like wireless), while the Diamondback cord is always present (makes sound, unflexible). I think the Zowie mousefeet are better, too.
Still, the shape of the Diamondback is good and sensor is very good (low LOD with tapefix) and looks sexy as hell.Edited by resis - 5/27/12 at 8:47pm
