HaiiYaa's Zowie Ec2 evo review - Page 7

post #61 of 365
I think I may have received a faulty unit. Red light bleeds through the back and right side of the scrollwheel.

Other than that the mouse is perfect, although I didn't like how it tracked at 1000 hz so I changed it to 500.

hi i'm currently using the cm spawn but find the side buttons a but mushy and hard to reach, while the 1 and 2 buttons are a bit stiff and have a longish travel distance.

can you go into detail about how the buttons feel compared to the spawn? are the side buttons crisp to click and easy to reach? is the long travel distance annoying? what about 1+2? do they require more force than the spawn? and how's the travel distance?

btw how big are your hands? thanks

Same on my unit. Do not think it's a faulty unit tbh.

I recently got an EC1 and I'm really happy with it. However, I'm debating on getting an EC2 just to sate my thirst for more stuff I don't need - or just for peace of mind, really.

My favorite mouse shape ever is a 1.1a, but the EC1 works because the ergonomics allow me to palm (I could never palm an ambidextrous mouse). I'm worried the EC2 will be too slim or the ergonomic style would put a damper on my fingertip grippage.

Any thoughts or input would be appreciated.

TLDR: Is it worth owning both versions?

oh btw, how do you decide between whether to get the rubber or gloss surface version?
i dont have sweaty hands, would gloss be better? rubber kinda makes my hand feel too dry

I can fully palm both the EC1 and EC2, but palming the EC2 does feel slightly cramped whereas I usually just rest my hand on the EC1. It's really hard for me to debate between the two - they actually feel comfortable but for different reasons - I mean I feel like I have slightly more control with the EC2, but the EC1 is definitely more comfortable. It definitely is easier to claw/palmfinger the EC2 since the curves and lengths just seem to match well with my hand, but the EC1 just lets me rest my hand on it. It's the toughest call on my end, but i WILL end up selling one, for the sake of permanently adjusting to one.

When the white one is released I'll probably do the same, buy both and decide on one to settle.
