Zaunkoenig's M1K gaming mouse claims to be the world's lightest mouse at 23 grams by being made out of carbon fiber, but is it any good? David needs to know.

Only reason I’m considering a mouse shape like this is because I hybrid finger tip/claw. If you can get used to finger tip only, it’s great for micro adjustments but big sweeping motions, I need a bit more substance for claw

Cool concept and all, but, I really wish we'd have a carbon fiber version of some great shaped mice though.

Light mice are mostly used in shooters for precision, but I'm used to using a heavy mouse, so when I'm playing a game and the gun stops instantly it actually throws me off. I'm subconsciously adjusting my movements for that little bit of extra travel you get with heavier mice, so I end up stopping too early. So paying that much for an ultralight mouse, no thanks.

Next iteration: A glove with a sensor in the palm for X/Y movement and tactile buttons in the fingertips. (Put your hand on your desk like it has a mouse in it. and pretend to move it around and click. That's what I mean.) AAAaaaaaand now I know what I'm making for my project this semester. BTW, I'm calling it 'ghost' or maybe 'phantom'. Or some other similar term that isn't ALREADY in use, because I already know that most of the good names are going to be taken...

can't bhop without scroll wheel, also browsing webpages I use that the scroll wheel, this thing is stupid
JustShay 6 giorni fa
I wouldn't say it's targeted for FPS gamers, cause if it is then they've well missed the mark. The scroll wheel is perfect for games that require switching distances, or selecting weapons if you have issue with the number keys, or even bhopping in certain games. Not having side buttons is also a deal breaker as those are usually mapped to important secondary actions. Lastly the body shape, I can't expect people to use that mouse for more than 2 hours max. A good mouse should compliment your palm, not force you into a particular grip. Granted I have smaller hands, but I would imagine that it's still not comfortable for people like me, let alone those with far larger palms. To me it looks like a mouse that was so hell bent of "shaking up tradition" that it sacrificed everything needed in a decent mouse. But hey, at least it's light right?

Sauking? Zaunkoenig, or Zaunkönig literally translates to fence king, and is one of, if not the smallest and lightest bird in Germany. Hence the light mouse being called the same.
DutchEllie 9 giorni fa
I don't understand the hype with light mice. Truly I don't like them at all even. I bought a lighter mouse than I had before once my old needed replacement and I didn't like it more, even though it was better in every way (except it was a logitech and got double clicking within a week). I returned that and bought a chonker of a ROG Chakram and will use that until its dead

As a big (therefore heavy) mouse guy, I absolutely don't approve. Many buttons, wireless function and big time comfort are a must. Asus Rog Spatha ist the way to go, although Roccat Tying does get an honorable mention. no one asked but here you go lol

The German Z is a hard sound, a bit like "ts". Btw: The Zaunkönig is a really tiny and light weight bird endemic to Germany (and other countries in Europe). In English it is called the much less poetic "Eurasian wren".

About the no scroll but need a third button and also the scroll is nice in menus and sutff - My first gaming mouse that I won at a school competition was the A4Tech X7 XL-740K. It had a small button kind of between the scroll and left mouse button (its better than it sounds) which by default was a triple LMB click for shooters, but ofc it had software for remapping. I LOVED THAT BUTTON. I play dota and map three of my inventory slots to my mouse - two to the two sidebuttons and one to that little button. Since that mouse broke (right click started not responding, I still have it tho :D) and I wanted something higher-end I moved on to other models that of course didnt have said button so I started using the scroll click.. Its fine, but generally on 99% of mice its kind of hard to click and also requires a bigger repositioning of my finger. Not sure why that button never became a thing and even A4Tech (aka Bloody for the ones that arent aware) themselves stopped implementing it.

a lot of people dont understand that they aren't the main demographic for this mouse. top tier aim players/pros are the people that this mouse is targeted at. specifically, those who play with fingertip grip. it doesn't matter if the majority of people think this mouse is a gimmick. it's like calling a Formula 1 car a gimmick because you can't daily drive it.

whats up with all the hype about extremely lightweight mice? i use my G502 with all weights and for me it could even be a bit heavier and with just the weights removed i have a hard time even hitting a damn desktop shortcut, so dont get my started on hitting anything in an fps is it just me that hates lightweight mice or is it the fact that i use my arms for more than moving a mouse and turning a servo assisted steering wheel all day? without pretty much any weight on the mouse i have a hard time doing any mouse movents while hitting what i want with a heavier mouse

Looks like pure, unusable garbage. -Why get rid of usable side buttons? -Why get rid of the scroll wheel when you can just turn it off? -Why still have a cord when wireless mice technology makes it functionally the same latency? -It's MASSIVELY overpriced for VERY little features.

I don't get it... What's the appeal of a mouse that is ultra light and sacrifices important features? I'm perfectly fine with my G903 and it's weight. This mouse seems ironically enough more of a burden than a heavier mouse. I wouldn't even want it if it was gifted to me and they charge 250€ for it? Seriously?

No scroll wheel? Basically not even for gaming. Cute mouse for 'executive' travel though. You just can't be missing core features that ALL GAMES have mapped. Maybe if you only play CS:GO, sure. For everything else, scrolling and pressing the scroll wheel are kind of an essential feature.

The scroll wheel isn't necessary in games where there's no bhopping. You can switch weapons using keys on your keyboard. I'm aware that they've released a new version with a scroll wheel. Which is cool. The size makes sense, if you're playing with a somewhat low sensitivity, then there's a very high chance that you use either a claw/fingertip grip and only use like 1/2 - 1/3 of your mouse. The price is a bit steep, but it's a carbon fibre prototype mouse, what do these people really expect. I think it's a great idea. Innovation is always cool. If I was a Quake Champions pro or whatever, then I could definitely see myself giving this a try.

They should just do a 35-40g weight mouse and make it full size. It would still be the lightest mouse and would probably feel better

I also Play Mostly FPS games and to me the MOST IMPRTANT feature is buttons. I do not use mouse wheel button, in fact I hate how clunky that is I literally break that button when I buy a new mouse. I like my weapons on my mouse, talk, and sprint as well. 1,2,3,4,5 minimum 5 keys. In R6 siege I use abilities too so it comes to 6 for that game since I move sprint to shift. So my dream mouse is basically a Logitech G Pro X Superlight Wireless Gaming Mouse Breeding with a Razer Nada 7 key hexagonal pattern.

It's expensive because carbon fiber is expensive. Which good quality is $50/sq ft. There is also waste that is taken into consideration for the cost in the end product. Carbon fiber has a decently high waste percentage. That's partially why it's more expensive than the Logitech
