The screenshots above are all made with AM @ 500 hz. The perfect control speed is more than enough for me. Enotus reports 3,74 m/s max speed (450 DPI @ 500 Hz). I'd say it's better than IMO 1.1 and much better than CM Xornet. I use a Roccat Taito MTW Edition.

do you get a stable polling rate reading @ 500hz ? my mousrate.exe reports fluctiations between 249-482-499hz instead of a constant 499 average, so i switched back to 1000 which gives me a 99% stable 999hz average.

I found the stock mousefeet on the Zowie AM to be quite sticky on a Puretrak Talent. I switched them for IMO 1.1 hyperglides and I think I prefer it.

Just got an email back from zowie

" The problem has been fixed for the second batch of the AM, where the “space” between the buttons are larger."

dx_mouse_timer_dialog.exe reports 510-520 Hz constantly, Enotus 490-499 Hz, Striders DirectInput Mouse Hz 470-500.

Great news! This mouse is shaping up to be better and better. If steelseries doesn't deliver, this will definitely be my new mouse.
