I had problems with my QcK+ SK edition, so just to be sure, take a black mousepad.

Of course. Until Zowie changes the lens you have to use single color mouse pads. Red will raise your LOD and black will have a low LOD.

Also, Artisan seems to warn their customers on many (all?) their mousepads from using the AM/EvO mice.

My AM (soon FK) seems to work fine on the Hayate though.

I had mixed results with an EC2 evo and an AM on my Hien, the AM was fine but the EC2 jittered very badly on the Hien regardless of angle. I think my EC2 could have been faulty as it also had the same problem on a G-TF Speed.

Zowie mice work okay with the Hien. They have a little bit of deviation when moving slowly diagonally. I think that is because of the thread size/shape. Would make sense if the lens does magnify.

*Keep in mind that tracking can vary with different polling rates.

Having the same issue. Button 2 clicks from the weight of 2 fingers. The mouse wheel sits too high to comfortable rest a finger on it, and if I leave only my middle finger on button 2 my hand spreads out and my pinky drags on the mouse pad.

Will the evo1 work for someone that palmgripped the mx518/g400?
and is there a way to make the mouse buttons less sensitive? xD

Depends on how you palm that particular shape, if you're like me and you put your ring finger on the lip and your pinky below that then you'll have to modify your grip a bit.

I did try a EC1 recently and I think of all of the 3.0-style mice it's the one I'd be the most comfortable using if I had to switch off of the G400.

I only really say that because it doesn't feel as flat as the 3.0 and DA, it's a little bit longer than the DA so your fingers don't hang over the buttons, and there's a lot more room on the right side of the mouse so it doesn't feel as cramped as the DA and 3.0 do. I didn't really feel like adapting to it in the end so I stuck with the G400, I may try it again in the future though.

Well I have tried an ec2 and while it is indeed much too small for me, I really like the overall feel of it.
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.
