Received my Zowie AM mouse today xD. - Page 2

post #11 of 31
Just got mine today. Mouse 1&2 rub and catch. Will return for a refund. Not going to try again unless Zowie announces a fix. Pretty gutted as the mouse is superb. Lovely tracking and I really like the feel of the switches they choose. Feel really precise and tactile.

The AM or AM-GS, maybe the GS ones are the only one that rub.

Interesting indeed. Everyone that I have seen complain about the buttons catching on each other has been with the GS. Zowie claims to have opened 25 AM's to check for the problem but they couldn't reproduce it, I wonder if they were opening the regular AM and not the GS version.

Just a heads up, this mouse has a IMO 1.1 shape ( / \ ) instead of a Xai or WMO shape ( | | , \ / ). Anybody who switched from IMO to WMO because of this, will have a big problem with Zowie AM. I know i'm selling mine after 2-3 hours of gaming because of this. The sensor is pretty flawless but the mouse slips from my hand. Even the rubber coting on the sides doesn't help. Oh well i guess my last hope is Kana or Kinzu v2.

This is what i mean

450

450

I also noticed the skates are very thin, if you use a cloth pad and press harder on the mouse the bottom will rub against the mousepad.

450

I guess adding the extra skates is not possible because of the very low LOD (< 1CD). Most likely it will affect the performance (malfunction speed).

Hopefully you like the Kana, it sucks there aren't many good choices available. Personally this mouse is the answer for me, the IMO shape is my favorite all time, can't wait to try this thing.

Just remember it's also smaller in width than IMO 1.1 by ~ 1 cm. Consider all these things very carefully before buying it.

The LOD is the same on all dpi settings, I dont think you will find a mouse with lower LOD.

Hm, I'll wait some more and see how this mouse button problem is going to turn out, but I think its save to say that, if your mouse does not have this problem, the AM is a good rodent.
