Tp4 is probably the 1 and only owner of a g4m3r grade 3366 vertical mouse on the planet..


So,  u tell tp4,   why put a 3360 in this,  when they have a bunch of 3360 mice that already closely approximate the shape of the imo/ime

Hire someone to make a video for you. And then make a new PBT or POM shell for the Intellimouse while you're at it..

Got one! Feels pretty much the same in my hand, the higher dpi is nice for my 4k monitor but also it will make me less accurate in shooters so i'll need to remember to put sensitivity at lowest.  The side buttons on this are better than any of the intelimouse 1.1 or 3.0 I've tried before, instead of feeling like flimsy plastic hanging off that can be clicked they feel like actual buttons. Overall I like it, I wish I could lower toe dp to at least 800 or better yet 400 the intelimouse 1.1 and my current 3.0 sitting off to the side do but eh I'll find a way to make due. Dunno what the big fuss about the blue led is, it works just fine for me on my huge ass mouse pad and its not a laser like my g600 has so its not gonna be amazing at that anyway.

Over all I like it so far, I'll use it more and post pics some time.

Wait... what's the minimum DPI you can set it to?

i believe it's stuck at 3200 unless you install "microsoft mouse and keyboard center".

and i wonder if the malfunction speed gets higher if you lower the cpi? worth a try :P


edit: site says "Tracking speed Up to 40 inches (1016 millimeters) per second".
dunno if it was added later or if i had somehow missed it before.
40 inches per second is lower than the intellimouse explorer 3.0 :-/

No option to turn off angle snapping... If it werent for that I would be perfectly happy with this mouse...

That is a bummer. I'm pretty crap at super-fine precision aiming so I probably wouldn't have even noticed angle-snapping, but as the predecessor of a mouse remembered for things like accuracy and precision, that is a disappointment...

angle snapping is a firmware feature,  it's not a hard-physical characteristic of any sensor system..

If they release this mouse, it will almost certainly have the ability to turn it on or off, if it even has angle-snapping to begin with.

you don't know that for sure; angle snapping can be applied before anything even reaches the MCU. and the MCU in this mouse apparently isn't flashable, so even if it was a firmware feature, it might not be changeable at all.

and what do you mean "if they release"? the mouse can already be bought, and supamesican is not the first to mention angle snapping on this mouse.
on top of that, he mentioned he was using the software, so i wouldn't say "it will almost certainly".

i don't know if you're just that stubborn or if you did not read the thread at all.. :P

No i didn't read the thread..

But I refuse to believe it's this bad..

We'll need more details when it's gotten wider release.

Jeez after reading about it since it's been released, my excitement is gone. Now I'm feeling more desperation for Microsoft to salvage this or for someone to mod a better sensor in as someone mentioned earlier.
