I ask because I want to know how long shipping takes to germany or the netherlands directly from zowiegear. Does anybody happen to know?

Ordered from Spain, on 4frags. I don't know if they make international shippings, and the page is all in spanish, but there is an interactive chat, so maybe you would be able to talk to them and see what they can do smile.gif

Its a Amazing mouse the shape is perfect it feels like a ms 1.1 but smaller and lighter and the tracking is amazing

also how easy will it be to file it down? are the buttons barely overlapping or is it rather large amounts of the button

In my case, I received an AM-GS, and the gap between the buttons was very narrow. They have a special shape like an inverted triangle kinda like |/ \| , so when you push one and then the other, you might end up with one not clicking and the other one being clicked all the time. With the GS version, it is not hard _AT ALL_ to make buttons overlap if you use both buttons in your normal activity. I had my fingers perfectly straight when clicking the mouse, so there's no need of any special position or shape of the hand.

I used a cutter to make the gap a bit wider, more a less just making the buttons end like _| |_ , with a bit more of space, so in case they rub against each other, they might rub but not overlap, so the problem is pretty much solved.

Got mine, awesome mouse but 1 issue:

I can click mouse4/5 by holding the body tight. It's a minor issue but still...

Other then that it's great.

PS: posted it in massive text so more people would notice and report it.

Belgium > America, we invented french fries.

On a sidenote, is there any proper way of informing Zowie about the Mouse 4/5 issue? I'm not accidently clicking the buttons, when I press my thumb hard on the side of the mouse I can make mouse4/5 click without touching the buttons.

does the mouse have an overall design flaw? seems the shape is just not fitting the mouse.

aka the buttons are too tight or overlap maybe other flaws yet to be seen...
