Guess this is what we get for a price less than Sensei , hhh


KROM company has 3 dm1pro/sensei clones, shame, sensors ranging 3050 to 3330 , weights up to 105g

P.S. Croad M350 with A3050 sensor, here are clicks of it, i assume could be same in m360, which i wouldn't mind, also they sell m360 for ~21.95$ in korean global market (korean ebay)

But recently I tried the Sensei again and it felt so much better playing a fps with it than with the Ec1-A (shape wise). So I ordered an Zowie Fk1 to see how it fits me. And the mouse is pretty great.

I like the buttons, the build quality and the sensor. Just the mouse wheel is pretty bad because it can get stuck between two states and when you do a flick the mouse will will register a scroll.

But overall I like the Fk1, it just is not as wide as the Sensei and the Sensei still feels much better in my hand. The sensor of the Fk1/Ec1-A can register speeds up to 5.6m/s and I often reach around 4.2m/s myself. But the Sensei only goes as fast as ~1.7m/s currently which is pretty horrible.

I play csgo with 800dpi and 0.8 sens with 6/10 on windows.

Now I have also looked at the Rival 100 because it is similar to the Sensei but the sensor only seems to operate well at 500dpi. Now this might not be the biggest problem, but I am wondering if there are other alternatives?

It wasn't him that recommended the GX1 Pro, it was me. I don't think your original post needed to sound as cheeky as it did. The fact you never elaborated on what you said made it sound that way. Maybe you never meant it to be but when I read it that's what it comes across like. I don't own the GX1 Pro however I do know that it has a steelseries-esque shape and I recommended it for that reason alone. It would be up to the OP to research it further or ask people who DO own it for dimensions etc.

Schaug A seller on ebay has a bunch of Newmen mice, due to a typo it's easy to overlook. GX1-Pro is about 40$ free shipping. The cheaper ones use A3050 I believe. ebay search

I have the GX1-Pro myself. Lightweight. Up to ~4 m/s on 400/800 cpi. Polling inconsistency on 500 hz (1000 is ok). High LOD, can be "tape-fixed". Cursor feels good, though a bit artificially smooth. It came with spare skates.

ncck Yeah dm1 is nice

Only drawbacks on it is the braided cable and coating (for me only) it didn't like my dry hands

I have it on my desk as a fast swap cause I really liked it. But I got a free rival 300 silver so I'm trying that out. They're both really good, DM 1 had better feeling clicks and side buttons for me. Also the overall hold felt a tiny bit better, felt like I had more control doing certain things

While the rival has a better grip, cable, mouse wheel, possibly sensor tracking, and I personally like the weight but I'm a low sensitivity

So they both outdo each other in certain spots but they are for sure both great mice. The firmware on the 300 is a little better though.

Well, enjoy!
