Mine seems to be a little unstable.
Is this normal (set to 500hz)

That's not normal. My zowie am shows a stable 499hz all of the time.

perhaps it is because of your motherboard. certain chipsets in motherboards can affect the polling rate reading.

So do you think it is actually working correctly and the program just isn't displaying the proper readings or is the motherboard actually causing a malfunction?

i guess the mouse is working correctly. you can refer to this thread for more info: http://www.esreality.com/index.php?a=post&id=1981209

Hmm I've found that if I plug it in using 1000hz and then use a mouse hertz changing program to 500hz it is stable.
Since fluctuating polling rates seem to be a problem on some of the modern motherboards, I've heard that using a pci or pci-e to usb expansion could be a solution for anyone else who gets really stuck.

i noticed 1000hz is alot more stable on this mouse, but 500hz might give higher perfect control speeds for some odd reason.

I don't have an AM, but my Zowie EC2 polling rate wasn't very stable on two different motherboards. All other mice with 500/1000 polling were much more stable.

What windows you got and Service Pack?

I am on windows 7 sp1, asus p67 board, the polling is very stable 997-1000 hz.

I remember about reading some people had problems with unstable polling rate in general, not just with zowie AM, and it's not caused by the mice.

Think it maybe caused by certain bios settings with some motherboards/chipsets, buggy old drivers, non-native usb 3 ports(try usb 2 port), not having latest SP/updates on windows,

Mine zowie am also had 650Hz polling rate. DA has perfect 500hz tough.
