Inside the Revolution Pro
While we have two halves, there should be a third section laid on its side in this image, but the left side of the Revolution Pro would not release its grip on the base, so we left it attached instead of breaking it trying to remove it.
The Mode and Lift buttons use T-MEC black switches that are easily activated and offer a crisp click when pressed. The page forward and back are backed with AIW red switches that require a fair amount of pressure to use and have a very audible click to them.
While a bit tough to see, under the left click button, we do in fact find top-tier Omron D2FC-F-7N switches used in the Revolution Pro, giving longer lifespan to the most used buttons.
We also found the Avago ADNS 9800 laser based sensor, which is as advertised--not that we have found any that didn't, but it is always nice to get a visual confirmation on the components in use.
The choice of MCU in this device came down to using the Sonin SN8F2288JG. This 8-bit MCU with onboard memory capabilities is plenty capable of delivering what the Revolution Pro states it can on paper.
Swinging back around to the right side of the mouse now, we see a matching Omron switch under the right click button, and also the use of a TTC switch for the heavy feeling scroll wheel.
The profile we booted the mouse with is profile one, and it has red LEDs to signify this profile. As you cycle through them, the various profiles are denoted with a pulsating light like this red is, but they offer green, blue, purple, and teal as you go from profile one to five.
As we spin the Revolution Pro around, we find the headlights match the tail lights on all profiles. We also see that just off the left click button is an indicator section. This has an LED matching the profile lights as well as four blue bars to indicate which DPI level you are currently operating on.
