Warwolf T1 g̶a̶m̶i̶n̶g̶ mouse, anyone? ( ͡ᵔ ͜ʖ ͡ᵔ)

Bought this stuff recently in AliExpress here (black model even cheaper there, paid €12.09 for 2 pieces LoL).

Some fellow from the east made this weird sounding review (to me of course), including a dismantle:

Due to super cheap shipping (it says ePacket but turned into seller's shipping method on purchase) I still have a long wait ahead. Any worthwhile feedback? Battery life? (^̮^)

I hope you like it!

I used to buy somewhat cheap computer mice on Amazon, but now I have a couple Logitech G502's.

They're not that cheap, but they work for me.  :THUMBS-UP:

...

By the way, Warwolf's website has a lot of trouble loading on my computers.

I’ve been a Logitech guy for decades, but I must admit that I’m wearing them out far too quickly and would prefer to try something else. I’m picky about my primary mouse, though, so it must be good all around. I’ve been looking at a couple of the G-series mice, but they’re not friendly to my tiny budget.

I’ve gone through 2 or 3 Logitech “nano” receivers with each of my last 3 mice and the mice themselves tend to have a particular problem with the rubbery covering on the mouse wheel swelling until the wheel begins jamming in its cradle when it rotates. This leads to accidental middle-clicks all over the place and much swearing when a mouse is not even a year old. It’s annoying to replace an otherwise working mouse just because a rubberized cover is degrading, yet there’s no economy in replacing individual parts or even in stocking them.

I’m interested in the mouse Barkuti is trying, but I’d prefer a AA-powered unit that doesn’t require plugging in. The 400mAh li-ion cell should be relatively light and I’ve found that weight can make a big difference on how much wrist pain occurs after many hours of usage.

However, the specified weight on the Warwolf page is 200 grams, though a later graphic says 145g. Perhaps 200g is the package weight? The M510 accepts 2 AA’s, but I run it with only 1 to reduce the weight to around 110g. I’m not a gamer anymore (I can’t afford game-capable hardware), but I spend a lot of time on the computer and like using lightweight, but comfortably-large mice. I travel with a smaller mouse, but it’s harder on my hand and wrist.

The T1 looks pretty cheesy, but that’s just how “gaming” mice are designed these days. I’d still buy it, though, as I don’t really care what it looks like. If a mouse has obnoxious LED patterns, there’s always the option of desoldering the emitters, if necessary, but that is extra work that I’d rather avoid. The T1 lights can be turned off, according to the review.

I hope that we hear more from owners, but the youtube review does not make me want to try one. I might not be a gamer, but his “rapid slide” tests seemed absolutely unbearable even in everyday usage. I’d likely get angry and throw it away Wink .

I apologize if most of this was off-topic Barkuti, but I am now shopping for a mouse and was thus interested in this thread; a decent cheap mouse would be a good find as those could be replaced quite often without spending much money. In fact, if I found I good mouse for less than $10, I’d probably buy 5 of them. That’s what I do Crazy .

I’ve noticed that a lot of these chinese mice are being sold under a variety of brand names.

If my Logitech mice don't last that long, I'll look into a cheaper alternative on AliExpress.

I have large hands and like a large corded gaming mouse, but I'll create my own thread if the need arises.  ;)

I was once a user of top of the line mice from Logitech. Bought an MX700, and later the MX1000 when it came out. Also bought a small Microsoft wireless optical mouse by the time, to take-out with a compact computer I built which could be plugged into TVs. A wireless pioneer, as you may guess.

I'm not a big guy, but since I grew accustomed to the above heavyweights I fear Big Smile no hulks (here's a guy who weighed some old mice). If it's heavy, just push-pull harder, your wrist/arm will grow stronger. Problem solved. Wink

I still have the MX1000. It ain't in the dumpster because it's going to an electrical appliances' recycling spot with a bunch of other garbage. But I can honestly say it served well for 10 - 12 years.

 

There's plenty of cheesy, inexpensive computer mice in AliExpress. Some even cheaper, but I like to have some decent DPI adjustment. Take a look at a few:

If I were to buy a new mouse for 10-15+ years, I would just pay up for an MX518:

Gaming hot list:
-Anything from Zowie (S2 is my current main, wish there was an even smaller version)
-Ninox Venator
-Razer Viper
-Logitech G203/G Pro
-Glorious PC Model O
-G-Wolves Skoll

I won’t use anything over 85-90 grams with how many lightweight options there are now. Excited to try the Cooler Master MM710 once its released in the US.

3310 sensor is a bare minimum requirement, but pretty much anything worth buying is 3360, 3389 or a variant of those now.

Edited the  title.

In all honesty, I do no longer game. If I were, it would probably be to some “ping pong” Arkanoid style clone game, or any other trouble free game/clone of yesteryear. Tried some online games MMORPG treadmills between  2001 and 2004  and no way. If I were offered a hefty wage to play, I would probably weigh up wasting a bit of my time. Go  figure.

We need some flight sim threads on BLF, seems like a crowd that would be all over that. Next paycheck I’ll be picking up a VKB flight stick since my Thrustmaster T1600 died and isn’t built to be fixed.

Buying high quality products is rather important for time, money, and environmental reasons.

I tend to agree with that sentiment and, in fact, I’m well-known for trying to find quality products and then expecting them to last forever. However, I am not confident that “paying up” for the MX518 will provide you with a mouse that will last for a decade and a half.

I take care of my equipment, but so far I cannot get any Logitech to last for more than 3 years. The longest-lasting mouse I ever owned was an original Microsoft Intellimouse Optical wired mouse (which solved my ball mouse problems so well that I basically had an unfair advantage in pre-millenium games against friends). That mouse still worked last I checked, but the buttons were glitchy; the tracking was still great (for its time). I just don’t like to use wired mice anymore as no longer have a standard PC.

$60 actually isn’t unreasonable for a quality mouse, though. Many people will pay more than $2000 for a nice laptop, so it shouldn’t be unreasonable to pay over $100 for an ergonomic, high-quality mouse and keyboard set.

The MX518 looks like a fairly simple mouse, though I wish it had a braided cord.

How does it stack up to the Logitech G502?

EDIT:

Seems like no one on BLF has a Warwolf T1.

There are a lot of reviews on AliExpress, however.

Logitech has the only good wireless tech for gaming. If you want it, you gotta give em Cash

Many new mice use shoelace/paracord cables (or you can install your own that doesn’t have shielding and will be even better) and that in combination with a “mouse bungee” gives a basically wireless feel. Wireless from other brands almost always has significant lag and is sometimes a total battery hog if they aren’t using the newer, more power efficient Pixart sensors.

Just saw this on the product page unfortunately:

Quote:
New Version: High Resolution: 2400DPI

Definitely a several gen old sensor, spin-outs and poor tracking inbound for gaming use.

But most importantly… shape/comfort >>>>>>>>>> aesthetics. MX518 is too big and heavy for me but I know lots of people that fell in love with the feel.

So, just 2400dpi is unfortunate? 

To me that is probably more than enough. I do not really own any high resolution display yet and, on the other hand, the first mouse I tried in my life was

 

Source article: http://ekot.dk/projekter/UIfMD/mockup3.html

 

Unmodified, of course. And with a ball. Wink

That was a really crude mouse, even for CGA/Hercules display resolutions (640 × 200, 720 × 348).

I would love to see nowadays' crybabies using one of the above. Oh wait! That mice used serial port connection, so not sure if any modern device/OS would recognize it. 

 

This thread is already somewhat off-topic, it turned out into computer mice discussion. 

I do not really care much about corded mice. Mice can be good and wireless, but since most people still believe they can only have gazillion polling rate or responsive mice with a cord, that's what they get and not the other way.

DPI in itself is just a sensitivity setting. I almost exclusively stay at 400 DPI.

The sensor haivng only 2400 DPI as the max means it can’t be one of the newer generation with flawless tracking. Until very recently the max tracking speed of sensors was low, so if you swiped it across your pad fast enough to would “spin out” and your aim/cursor would shoot straight up instantly.

Trust me, the mouse community on overclock.net and other forums is JUST as obsessive and scientific about them as we are about flashlights here. Logitech’s new wireless tech is such a big deal (and so expensive) because literally nobody has done what they have before and there is data to prove it. Now that the cat’s out of the bag I’m sure other companies will step it up and try to compete (rumors are something will be out SOONER rather than later).

Shape is always, always most important though (okay maybe MMOs and RTS games being the exception where you need lots of buttons?) and that’s why I wouldn’t use Logi’s wireless mice even for free.

My dad has a mouse not that old but fairly similar. The PC he had it connected to ran Windows… 3, I think? Crazy to remember how advanced that all seemed, I sure won’t miss dial-up though Big Smile

Our first mouse was a Logitech C-7 for our IBM XT. It was $100! Cash

I still have it, and it probably still works.

It’d be fun to stuff the innards of a wireless mouse inside it.

I’d leave the cord unplugged on the desk while using it. Party

+1. Heck, I’ve never even used a 2400dpi mouse Blushing . Must be nice. For less than $10, who’s going to care about getting a sensor that’s 3 generations old? Competitive gamers aren’t the target market here Silly .

Put a USB adapter onto it and it should work. I’d actually watch competitive gaming if everyone had to use the mouse above. That would be fun, as 20 years ago I collected plenty of personal experience of how badly a sticking ball mouse will screw you up in games. We’d get to see a lot of screaming tantrums and shattered mice Party .

I think it’s a fault of human nature to take everything a million times past the point of vanishing returns. I do understand why competitive gamers must have the latest and greatest of everything, but people should also remember that those kids aren’t paying for any of it; they get paid just to use the stuff that suckers like us will be paying for.

If you can actually tell the difference between one mouse and another with last year’s sensor, then by all means purchase the newest $200 gaming mouse if it improves the experience. Still…

Linus Tech Tips did a video recently where they set up a super-slo-mo comparison between wireless and wired mice and there was basically no difference at all. I wouldn’t object to a wired mouse if I had a PC that sat in one place, but I don’t; I have a laptop.

 


I see people all the time using nothing but a touchpad all day, every day [shudder] Sick . They must be masochists.

The genius mouse was lent to me by a friend, we still did not have a mouse for the PC. Soon aftwerwards my brother brought home one of the below classics:

 

Link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-GENUINE-MICROSOFT-PS-2-PN-31660-RARE-COMPUTER-MOUSE-2-BUTTON-12077-/371982927622

I'd say the above seller is somewhat cheeky, but guess that is what it is. If he just sells a few at such pricetag, it's a win.

 

That Microsoft mouse worked a lot better than the above Genius, at least as far as I can recall.

As with all ball mice the basic credo was keeping the mouse ball rollers clean, and of course using a proper mouse surface (and keeping it clean). That ensured a proper mouse-ing experience. I can't recall the many times I cleaned one of my close friends' mice, I used to go to his home to play computer games back in the day. You could even find hairs inside from time to time.

Completely agree, ROFLMAO. With a big box full of used, unclean Wink vintage mice to share out with those in trouble. I would bet with the patient, wise ones first taking care of their peripherals' hygiene.

OFF-TOPIC (sorry Barkuti, but couldn’t pass this up)

BurningPlayd0h wrote:

Me neither…

I still have it (1).

There are millions of people in this country with no access to broadband and no one really gives a crap. Everyone just tells me to move somewhere else. Next time they want a hamburger, maybe I can tell them to move to where they can have “access” to cattle Wink . (we raise beef cattle)

People that are on the Internet and use its many services are unlikely to know about people who are not on the Internet and cannot use those services. Such people basically no longer exist. On the plus side, they aren’t having their minds poisoned by Twitter…

 

(1) – I’m not on dial-up right now because, after years of trying, I finally discovered a very specific location in my home that receives a weak LTE signal from Verizon, which claims to offer no service here. I got lucky and now tether my laptop to my phone. I went from 19Kbps to about 900Kbps. Even though the reception goes in and out from night to night, I’m thankful for each and every bit. When I hear people complain about getting 10Mbps or something, I just laugh to avoid punching them Wink .

My father still uses my dial-up account and I can still check e-mail with it when the LTE drops out, so technically I still have dial-up. I certainly still pay for it. The ISP has warned me that their access numbers could stop working at any moment. We lost 2 out of 3 local numbers last year.

There’s a lot of rambling story behind all of this, but it’s not appropriate to do that here.

Now that I have a phone with no hand crank on the side, I think I’ll try one of those newfangled “compact disc” machines…

(yes, I’ve had a cellular phone for 20 years; they just never worked at home, which was not necessarily a bad thing as business almost never followed me home Crown . Once I left town, I was effectively off the grid.)

We have satellite internet, which is the worst kind of broadband available.

It's either that, or dial-up.

The Microsoft mouse worked very well, in my opinion, and was magnitudes more comfortable than those that came before it. I’ve got one somewhere, but see no reason to find it Wink . Though I used Logitech mice as well, I upgraded from Microsoft mouse to Microsoft mouse for my home computer, at least until they stopped making them better.

Quote:
As with all ball mice the basic credo was keeping the mouse ball rollers clean, and of course using a proper mouse surface (and keeping it clean).

Nasty things, ball mice. The ball needed to be clean, but the primary problem for me was that the axles “automatically” cleaned (collected) most of the dirt from the ball. Once a week or whenever it began acting badly, I would turn over the mouse, remove the ball, and use a cloth or tissue to clean the gunk and unwind the hair from the axles. Since the mouse rolled over a surface rubbed by your fingers and arm, I figured that the gunk was dirt mixed with dead skin cells. It was dry, though, so it wasn’t terribly disgusting and people those days were accustomed to it Wink .

One reason I chuckle at gaming mice that require a special, wired mouse pad is that old ball mice also performed best on “special” mouse pads. I went through at least a couple of 3M mouse pads in the late 90’s (before buying the original MS Intellimouse Optical) as they had tiny little bumps on them which helped to roll the ball more reliably. The 3M “surfaces” were really just a thin layer with one side textured, so I glued these to normal mouse pads and trimmed the underlying pad to match the 3M shape. I obviously liked the result, as…

Though the grippy texture wore off to some degree (and was no longer needed), I kept using one of those 3M pads with my Intellimouse Optical, as the pad had a highly detailed pattern that helped the optical mouse track well. Those early optical mice did not track at all on low-contrast or glossy surfaces. I wound up using one particular 3M-pasted-to-generic pad for about 15 years.

Spin-outs don’t require a trained eye to see/feel:

All the wireless mice tested there are low-latency wireless tech, except for the MX master. That’s why there is little to no difference in input lag.

Check out Steelseries they make good quality mouse and mouse pads for a decent price. I got one of these on sale for a great price so i bought it.
https://www.legitreviews.com/steelseries-heroes-storm-gaming-mouse-revie...

DPI isn’t the best but its more than i need i game at around 3000dpi playing Battlefield. My Razor was a better mouse specs wise but the build quality on the razor is subpar to the Steelseries.

Also Coolermaster have a nice lineup I’ve been using Coolermaster PSUs and fans for over 15 years they are decent.

This thread is feeling more and more like LGR’s channel.

All I know is that I miss playing marbles with the rubberized steel balls of broken old mice like Barkuti’s Genius above (and scraping the rollers clean of that dry grime that built up on them and affected sensitivity, it was one of my pastimes as a bored kid), and that I don’t think I need more than two thumb buttons to cycle among my soldiers in XCOM 2012, but a few for the pinky would be appreciated. lol Silly

Older sensors had a “max tracking speed” much lower than those in the last few years. If you swiped too fast (which is easy to do in a FPS if you’re playing at a low enough sens) it would spin out and look straight up or down like that.

With almost any sensor in any mouse using a DPI that high will introduce smoothing and other issues. I’d recommend dropping to 1600 or lower and simply raising the in-game sensitivity.

Pretty good rodent and quick delivery for the price (it's even cheaper now). This is just a quick run of the mill evaluation, of course. Mouse can be powered on without the lighting effects, which neither are unpleasant.

Looks like a decent mouse.

How do you like the scroll wheel?

Nothing to complain, with good default sensitivity.

It would be nice to see how it would fare on the aforementioned Linus Tech Tips delay/response time video benchmark, but I ain't gaming so no big deal.

I doubt that it would do as well as the mice designed for low latency, but it likely won’t matter to everyday usage, regardless. If you don’t notice any lag between input and movement, then it’s good enough.

I’m worried that these modern “gaming” mice that seem to be multiplying like rabbits from Chinese manufacturers/brands have too many cracks and openings, though. I think they’ll tend to collect dirt and gunk and have to be retired more quickly. I don’t even like some of the pricier Logitech models as they have honeycombed holes in them, apparently to reduce weight, and those holes will simply allow more dirt to ingress.

I’m sure those holes are helpful for weight and for reducing the sweaty slipperiness of typical mice in a high-adrenaline gaming situation, but that’s why I think many of these gaming mice might be a poor choice for an everyday mouse. Specialization often comes at a cost.
