The clicks are more solid and crisp than the EC, especially the side buttons which are much smaller.

Overall I much happier with the FK1 then i was with the EC2A. I just wish I got the FK1+ as the FK1 is a little small on the width.

glad you mentioned that.. i got the fk2 awhile ago thinking it would feel similar to the wheel mouse optical but the sides were too thin.I was eventually going to try out the fk1 but the fk1+ seems more appropriate

Yep the FK1+ would be just nice i think. But it's currently out of stock locally so I can't get my hands on it.

I love my FK1+. It's probably my most favorite mouse ever whereas my EC1-A has caused me nothing but headaches.

Hi guys,

after using the Zowie EC-2A (newest release with red logo, blah) for a few weeks I noticed two problems.

When I move the mouse fast from left to right I hear a strange noise. It occurs when I play CS:GO a lot.
Next thing: When I hold down the right mouse button it makes a very strange noise..

Is it bad? Do I have to return it? I don't want to live a week or two without it because it's so freaking awesome.... besides these "problems".

Made two videos for you! smile.gif

My EC2A does that also on the right click but not as bad as yours. Since I don't use my EC2A I didn't bother to RMA it.

The wiggle noise sounds like the scroll wheel shifting, try holding it when shaking. I might actually return my FK1+ because every time I swipe I can feel the scroll wheel moving. Haven't decided yet.

i have an fk1+ and an old fk1 with yellow logo.

Hmmm..
@Movement noise: It's not the scroll wheel but a good guess at least.

@right click noise: Have not recognized that until I played Mercy from Overwatch where you hold down the buttons... :S
