Always designed by ". Designed by Gamers, true story" but always the same bullshit where the players dont use it. Steelseries is such a snore, Razer, ZOWIE and QPAD are on top.

you own one of these qh 1339 headsets? acutally qpad just bought the licenses from beyerdynamic to get these headsets under their name just google beyerdynamic mmx 300 :D and the quality of the mice from razer and ss are pretty similar both brake very easily. for that the razer ones are even more overpriced

btw one of the razer barracuda headset user said ( well he wasn't the only one a friend of mine confirmed it ) he had taken an electric shot while playing, along with other problems like the right side falling, screws fallings and LEDs not working after a week also : one of qpad's headset made sixer's computer burn ( the soundcard first ) so far steelseries may not be of equal quality with pros like sennheiser but compared to their " by gamers for gamer " rivals, well at least they aren't dangerous

LOL :D well i already heard some bad things from tixo wich he really hates the headsets of razer just to keep it under us. because he did a statement on the razer website where he was promoting that crap :D about the qpad(beyerdynamic) headset. it uses more power than a normal headset could be one of the problems. as long as the headset isnt damaged you cant blame the headset for that :D maybe he just had a bad cheap soundcard product xD but yeah thats some interesting storys

2011-04-13 16:12
Yes man!
2011-04-13 16:15
Perfect mice??? What do you mean? Like Salmonsa, Mamba..... I think that only loosers use Razer's mouse. And if you see that zowie keyboard's perfect, what do you think about Deck????
2011-04-13 16:14
Let me tell you something man, Qpad is "just a mousepad", in the same way that Porsche is "just a car". It's different with all other brand's mousepad. It's a great!
2011-04-13 16:17
razer makes the best material <3
2011-04-12 10:09
well actually razer says designed by gamers 4 gamers and still sucks so there is all the same

2011-04-12 07:05
if SS mice are so shit then how come the entire Fx team is using them when their sponsored by Qpad? stop talking shit about products ...its all about preference ...but when ur sponsored ...its a different story ...a good player can adapt to almost any gear ...

there is acceleration in kinzu. you just can't disable it. it's quite a little actually but it definately is there. it's a hardware problem in kinzu. acceleration can't be disabled from kinzu.

I want no problem mouse with durable mousewheel and durable cord not like Ikari laser and shape could be like Ikari its perfect for my hand ;) Sensor used should be stable not like Avago 9500 with automatic frequency it should give stable 1000Hz responce no matter if you move mouse. It has to have adjustable cpi. Let you prove that you are No.1 SteelSeries
2011-04-12 09:15
Looks like those old Microsoft mice or one of the earlier Logitechs. O well whatever it is maybe it will be priced decent...
2011-04-12 09:25
That looks shopped. I can tell from some of the pixels.
2011-04-12 09:59

So why write about it just yet? Makes no sense. I really think most of us can keep from shitting ourselves for at least a couple of days, till the actual project/product hits the streets. This is just feeding the hypemachine with blanks! - that's my opinion.

SS sucks.
2011-04-12 20:07
Designed by Gamers size: like 1.1 not to small not to big scroll: better scroll senzor: best optical senzor in the world dpi: 400 to 800 driver: 125 to 500mhz settings in driver default driver settings : 400dpi 500mhz no accel
2011-04-12 21:13
will be really nice if that mouse will be better than kinzu,xai and not expensive as xai :) it will be cool to see something like 1.1 as said #147 :) it will be perfect i think :)

like xai, with kinzu sensor, no accel....

My dream mouse: Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical SS Edition: - scroll bug + more dpi about 1600 with customizable profiles + plug and play with 1000Hz like in ZOWIE + no breakable cable, more elastic + better glides + two version of size 1.1A and 3.0 + superior tracking about 9000fps + coated slip-resistant It all what I want from mouse to play better.

Best sensor would be Avago ADNS-3090 (found in CM Storm Spawn) which is an optical sensor. It has very low lift-off distance, you can enable or disable prediction and acceleration, and high perfect control/malfuntion speed.
2011-07-26 15:02
1.1 se has mouse 4 and 5 ( 3 is scroll ). They have rubber coating. 3.0 has 400dpi sensor, not 450 and i don't think it can do 1000hz safely ( not even DA can do 1000 safely ) color system ? haha its a cheap led.
2011-07-26 15:12
1 reply
old 3.0 got 450 default 125 its not safe to go on 1000 but with the DA u can go easily with no problems to 1000 because default its 500. color system he means you can change colors on the led on diferent parts of the mouse...

We'll see what there again Steelseries do it.
