My only concern is for the mouse buttons. Feel a little afraid I might accidentally trigger them once in a while.. what were they thinking making them so sensitive? you constantly have to tense your fingers to not trigger them.
I had the same problem with the 2nd mouse button, it won't quite support 2 fingers. For a single finger it was no problem. The EC2 feels fine when tilted a bit, it allows me to position my 3rd finger closer to the mouse edge and it doesn't trigger the button.
My first EC2 I sent back because it had a bad scroll wheel. The wheel clicks felt like they were spaced very far apart, making the wheel feel almost over sized. The actual mouse wheel wobbled and was prone to lifted up when I started turning from the very front, some of the turns didn't register. Some of the IR light was bleeding through to the mouse scroll light. The lighting wasn't a big deal, but it did make the blue look purplish.
I am happy to report that the most recent EC2 has a lot better scroll wheel. The actual turn points are closer together so it is easier to scroll, and the wheel has a slight wobble. The most recent one also doesn't have IR light bleeding through to the scroll wheel lights. Overall, it feels like they vastly improved the mouse wheel. The 2nd mouse button also requires slightly more force to press. It's not enough to comfortably rest 2 fingers without accidentally clicking, but the area I can rest my 3rd finger on without clicking is a lot larger. The 2nd click feels a bit spongy. I haven't used the mouse enough to know if it will be an issue.
I have an FK arriving in a week or so, I'll let you know which one I like more.Edited by 1Kaz - 4/10/13 at 5:36pm
