I've gotten used to 800 in the past but then my beautiful mousepad was like 'use me' and I was like.. ok baby.. just for you.. I'll glide all over you (leaves before post gets weirder)

Can't wait for reviews of this mouse though! I also hope there is some more mice announced.. or hopefully a zowie 3360 in the near future!

Ye as I said, I rebind the DPI buttons to more useful things.
I only use 800dpi and never change.

But 2 extra buttons that are not in the way is perfect for me to use for media functions, or work things.

KPMs braided cable isn't really all that bad. Mine is still in pristine condition even after a lot of use, no fraying and it is lightweight. Would pick it over Logitech's braided any day and prefer it over the Zowie cable.

KPM is indeed quite oddly balanced. This seems very interesting news. Wonder if the sensor is still located so high up. Also, the images of the "Owl-eye" are renders so it has the same physical casing as rest of the 3360-based sensors.

Ye I hope the coating still feels the same.
The Kone Pure series have amazing coating, and ye it does get worn down quite a bit.
My KPM I used for 2 years have more of a glossy sticky feeling now, compared to the newer KPM I have which is much more smooth as they are new.

But tbh, I hope they did not mess with the smoothness of the coating, the grainy coarse coating some mice have is horrible.

3360 family, and under 90 grams. Nice.

Before everyone starts getting excited here, what type of Scroll Wheel is this new model using?

Hope it is still their famous Alps Scroller otherwise this goes into the plain and boring bin, with all the other cheap Yum-Cha releases.
