Nixeus Revel, a poor mans dream mouse?



Some firsthand information, sorry for any grammatical mistakes. I got this mouse for $30 off newegg which is like $10-$20 off normal price, was a newegg flash deal.

The only selling point for this mouse was 3360 sensor for $30 :o 

My hands are around 175mm from wrinkle to tip, and 77mm across



Simple box, not much just a manual, the only thing that you actually want is the free provided mouse skates they give you

which is nice because my flick g1's skates are almost shredded by now but i don't have replacements. :l 


Build Quality


  • Shell Very familiar to the Steelseries Sensi. Black variant has a rubberized plastic matte coasting/White has a gloss finish.
  • The finish is only on the top of the shell and the sides use the regular body plastic
  • The matte finish defiantly helps with sweaty palms, although the quality of the coating is pretty meh, the Flick's feels much more richer and smoother.
  • Overall plastic quality is meh, given its price that i've bought for $30, its ok but still, quality of plastic similar to razer's DA Chroma 
  • The Wire is standard rubber coat, not braided.


  • Macros No finish on the macro its just plastic, the're very small i've grown fond of it, your thumb has less of a travel to find the actuation switch


  • Mouse Wheel Very similar to the wheel on the razer naga, has three rows of bumps. Very little resistance but not enough where it free spins, pretty decent


  • Mouse Skates Same as Sensi no complaints here, and +rep for the extra pads
  • Sensor Its a PWM3360 sensor, works just as it should, does not spin out, tracks great. I cant tell between the other brand 336x variants like the 3366, 3361, 3367 from this base model.





  • The hump is definitely smaller than the deathadder, and a straight curve instead of a indented curve fits nice for again small hands, as this mouse is only 127mm.



  • If you're someone who likes support on their support fingers, than dont buy this mouse, the sides cave in, same as the flick g1
  • You're going to have to use your support fingers for grip as well.


Software is optional 



As crappy as the UI looks, has the basic functions of remapping and macro support, DPI/Acceleration, ect...




You can set what lights you want on the set profile DPI Step, so on 400 dpi I have a blue, and 800 dpi its green so on and so forth



Works great, $30 worth, if not on sale I wouldn't buy it, i'd buy the Dream Machines DM1 Pro S instead, Comes with a braided cable and arguably better QC

Only Complaint I have is mouse wheel rattle, I got the luck of the draw and got mouse wheel rattle :(
