Why would you do that if you're not satisfied with the findings so far?

I do believe you should clean your mousepad before making Perfect Control tests. It may cause inaccurate results.
2.9m/s Perfect control at 450 DPI is pretty good TBH. I'm pretty sure it'll be enough for me. I do ~24cm per 360.
I hope HiiYaa will post his review pretty soon, coz this point I'm pretty sure I'll order AM as soon as it shows in my country.
Btw. Ramla your the reason I didn't bought Mamba, and I'm thankful for that. smile.gif
Keep up the good work.!
Yeah, you'd have to be pretty crazy to reach that with 24cm/360.

Well, the only mouse that really competes with this shape and sensor-wise is the Xai/Sensei. And the Xai is not an option for me personally for a few reasons, so that leaves one option (at least for me) frown.gif And to be honest, nothing so far worries me too much. Mainly wondering about how I like the shape and feel.

are the figures purely from the thread that is unconfirmed with wavey lines? Id like to see some proper testing and a demo of how you manage to make them touch holding normally tongue.gif

I am not going to buy AM!
Zowiegears mice are very expensive even tho they cost much less than actual price should be.

Actually I am done with following companies!
1st one is Puretrack! Never ever gonna buy their ****!
2nd Zowie gear (experienced both of previous mice! nothing special)
3rd Razer (Enough of them lol blindly making mice with twin eye sensor and jittery idiotic shape like Abyssus)
Only best mouse they made was Deathadder 3G

I will continue to buy small light weight mice without Pixart sensor from Logitech and Steelseries!

The price in U.S. dollars I consider great, though the euro price seems much higher. Keep in mind how much newer and smaller Zowie is and how little they sell compared to the big guys (and Razer charges high prices for what I consider to be below average quality). I can relate with you on the brand preferences, personally I won't buy a Razer or SS product anymore unless it ends up being exceptional and better than what they've done so far. Microsoft and Logitech just put out generally solidly made gaming products with good warranties, they are the shining knights of the industry, too bad they haven't targeted me personally yet, I wish either made a gaming 3.0 or IMO1.1 shaped mouse.

If you order a Razer mouse directly from Razer, it hardly comes cheaper. It's true that most of the price reduction comes from Razer or Steel getting recognized by the big resellers. Zowie does not have that (and I don't know if I ever want them to become mainstream...probably not smile.gif. Point being: Razer does not sell cheap. Compare a Razer price to a Zowie price directly, then compare the quality. What would you buy?

Which does not mean ofc, that both do not charge too much for what they offer.

Any Mouse you buy directly will cost a lot more than online resellers! This includes Razer Logitech SS Zowie all of them.

Razer mice does feel like premium product. I know they are not very durable but 45 euro (max) for Deathadder actually feel its that much cost.
59.99 euro + shipping (14.99!) is rip off from Zowie! Even if you compare with Razer they give free shipping! Buy it from local reseller its more cheaper!

Zowie products doesn't feel that way. They look like copy cat of Razer products but hardly reaches the quality of Razer.
Finally Razer has more to offer Drivers Firmwares which Zowie does not include in their overpriced mice.

I am not fan of Razer if anyone thinking I had 6 mice from them and I will never ever going to buy their mice again!

EC1/2 is a ripoff of the IE 3.0, just like the deathadder and habu. The drivers thing is valid if you like drivers, I hate them personally. Plug and play for me. Zowie certainly seems expensive in euros, but that alone doesn't make it a bad mouse, especially since that added expense over Razer buys you quality. Everyone has different opinions and preferences though. thumb.gif

No disrespect, but. Razer has by far the worst quality control ive ever seen in any company that sells peripherals, Sure the deathadder is ALMOST a good product, except from the obvious blunder that is the scraping issue and the scroll wheel that randomly dies (for some), The glossy sides is preference.

Ive known some who has bought their lycosa or however you spell it keyboard, and gotten a broken one, sent it back over 5 times, after that, they gave up and just got their money back. (2 people)
in which regard has zowie copied razer though? , Surely you do not mean the deahtadder
