Likely lower placement increasing the DPI slightly.

Is there a guide so I can look in order to change the Huano switches with Omron switches? What do I have to look (particular style or Omron number) to buy the replacement switches? Thanks

So I really like the AM (and the EC2 evo as well) but my problem is with the steps. My problem with them is most games I play that aren't fps, the steps are either too low (1150) or just too high (2300). There's no inbetween, which would be perfect for me. I wish I could get one with an ~1800 step in there.

Anyone have similar problems or a solution? I guess I could lower the pointer speed a bit in the windows control panel, but I don't know if I'd run into issues trying to 'simulate' a lower dpi...

Put lower DPI step such as 450 and adjust it by using the game's sensitivity
you can use it to calculate:

Not sure which game that's for, but unfortunately the game that I'm playing most now (gw2) doesn't have an in game sensitivity, or it would probably be a moot issue frown.gif

I bought a Zowie AM a few days ago. After some hours of usage something on the bottom started scraping against the mousepad. I returned it for a Zowie AM-GS the day after (since it sufferd from another defect as well), only to find out that it too started scraping against the mousepad after a few hours of usage (on a soft mousemat i dont think one would even notice it though).

So, are all AM:s like this? Must i simply resort to changing to thicker mousefeet?

The trick is that it probably won't track with thicker mousefeet

I had this issue with my am, the rubber coating is pretty bad and it comes off quite easily and the scroll wheel is god awful.

I'm sitting with a Zowie AM-GS right now and it definately doesn't have that problem. However the mousefeet are not very tall and I think if they were any taller it would not be tracking it all because of the extremely low lift off distance

Its that little light thingy that glowes (indicating which DPI level is chosen) that is scraping into the mousepad =I

EDIT: i returned it for a new one and the new one does not scrape into the mousepad at all!

EDIT: I opened it up and removed the sidebuttons as well as its pcb, some plastic under the shell, and the scrollwheel (i can put it back if i so wish). It now weighs 68 grams (down from 88). Feels amazingly swift to move around! Needless to say i dont need a scrollwheel for the games i play. Ive kept the plastic thingy that comes with the mouse and i put it over the mouse whenever im not playing, so that it doesnt take in unnecessary dust.
