RMA time. This doesn't happen on mine at all.

thats not spreading false information its correct a fact smile.gif
Stop spreading fud around here. This is a technical forum not a troll forum. As I said this issue is FIXED on the AM. The very first batch had that issue but now you can go and buy a AM from anywhere and it won't have a button problem. The Mico is a different story. I don't know (and slightly doubt) that they fixed it there too. I hate it when people are stating lies as facts when they have absolutely no clue what they're talking about. Jeez...

Neither on mine but I will test thoroughly again when I'm back home to make absolutely sure.

I tried to reproduce what you, Makav3li, were talking about.
Test environment was a QCK Heavy mousepad, ~400 CPI @1000Hz, Quake Live.
I exceeded the perfect control rate on very fast swipes (had to look out not to crash into my PC speakers or keyboard) and it malfunctioned. I looked down or the cursor just didn't follow anymore and stopped moving. But directly after that I slowly moved and slowely swiped from left to right, all the time without ever lifting the AM inbetween, and I had no lag or slower movement whatsoever.
If your interested in the mouse I advice you to RMA it and see if helps.

I recently bought the AM and I am very happy with it so far. About the problem with the 2 mosue buttons getting to close together: My mouse does in fact have this problem, so it seems that there are still some being sold, that have the problem. However, I really think that if you notice this problem, you are really pressing to hard. I don't ever notice the problem while playing.

I ordered mine from Amazon almost a month ago, I don't think it has the Mouse 1/2 problem, but I could get them to touch if I pushed them together on purpose. With the amount that I had to do it, I instantly thought "there's no way this could ever happen from regular playing".

Had this too on my Allsop, turned the mousepad upside down and it was fixed. Had this before with other mice. Not sure if it'll fix it for you but it's worth a try.

I tried it out on my QCK for two hours, and now I'm using it on a black cloth Artisan pad (a little more slippery).

LOD is just too damn low. I'm sorry but every minute my turns are cut in half because of the extremely low LOD. I used a WMO before so I don't think that mouse really had a high LOD.

If the low LOD is a common thing I'll probably sell this or something. I think I'm going back to the wmo.

Placebo maybe, no offense. How are you verifying that statement?
I just checked for jitter, these are the results, all on 1000Hz:
344
344
344
If it doesn't bother you maybe try the QCK Heavy. It's very similar in size and performance but plain black. I've not encountered any issues on it.

This mouse sacrifice IPS and PRESICION, by reducing lod.

Precision: when you try to move in steps of 1 pixel. It's very impresice , you want to go X: +1 - Y: -1 (A diagonal step) You will not be able to do that with the zowie. (Or at least It would be very hard...)
then apply that concept to a complete line and you'll get to the conclusion that it's not a precise mouse.

I opened up Paint.NET, looked in the bottom right where the cursor position is shown in pixel, and moved the mouse slowly on X+1 Y+1. That worked 3 times in a row on the first try. So I still don't get where you have that opinion from.
Also the max speed is pretty high on the AM compared to 90% of the mice on the market. There are only a handful optical mice out there that perform better in that regard, and as far as I know that basically consists of: G400, DA, Abyssus. All of them have a higher LOD though. I for myself have more benefit of a lower LOD like on the AM where I can better and more accurately can reposition my mouse instead of having even more tracking speed possible that I won't ever need, and pretty much most gamers won't either.
post #450 of 714
The AM is one of the best I've ever used. I'm sure its not perfect but I don't understand how you could label it as being not precise. Mine doesn't jitter, the low LOD helps me alot (thats preference ofc) etc. etc.

The only real problem you can have with the AM is when you exeed its maximum IPS which still is mucher higher than other mice out there.

Or maybe I'm too dumb to notice all its flaws smile.gif Anyways, I'm fine with it. Hope bsts G1 owl mouse turns out even better.
