More FAILMOUSE schadenfreude..
|The replacement program is progressing slower than we would like because for some reason that presently remains inexplicable, the first sample from the second production run did not match the prototype. The joystick was not mounted horizontally, but angled upward in a manner that would have caused problems. So, we had to tell the factory to fix the newly introduced hardware bug, which is why we haven’t sent any replacements out yet. We will provide you all with a ship date as soon as we have one. We completely understand everyone is eager to get a fixed mouse, but after sending you mice of a quality we consider unsatisfactory, we don’t believe we would be serving either you or ourselves well by sending out mice that we know are flawed. So, please hold tight, keep using your current Metas, and rest assured that you will receive the fixed mice as soon as they are available.|
And the one Amazon review (obviously not a fanboy)
|build quality not good enough, 13 July 2010 |
By Giacomo Lacava (Manchester, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: WarMouse Meta Laser Joystick Gaming Mouse 5600 DPI
It's an interesting concept, obviously it will take a while to get used to it and customize it to my needs.
Unfortunately, build quality is not good. The wheel feels half-broken, and the larger keys don't "click" on the entire surface -- common issues on low-end mice, but this is not supposed to be low-end.
