The Zowie Am aint better, its as good id say since both have a very good sensor. Im not sure what your problems with the cable are, if its broken rma it(if your lucky u dont even need to send the mouse bacvk to get a replacement) and for other problems a mouse bungee or even better a zip tie negate any stuff a cable can do wrong.
For the Zowie AM, if you like hard to press buttons its nice, else its bad and tireing, personally i wouldn play rts with it but its only me, i like buttons like DA or the IME/WMO.
PS: for the LOD: i cant stress it enough, its nothing that 95%of players will notice or have problems with. Even the really high LOD of the DA 3.5g on the qck heavy aint a problem to most players.
If you are one of the 5%that really want 1-2cd LOD put a damn piece of non-clear tape over the sensor, paly around a bit to get the right amount of the sensor covered and there u go, 1-2cd LOD. If you think omg i wanna be elite and adjust my LOD even more its okay, buy some cheap mousefeet and put them on, like tht u can adjust it totally well.
I would choose abyssus over AM, smaller and better switches and also it is a cheaper option
I agree, maybe u will have to buy a new one after 2years but even if u have to u get 4years of functional mouse MINIMUM out of the Abyssus for the price of 1AM which aint built 2times better, only a bit and that has the same quality switches that break like every switch after too many uses.Edited by IloveKuchen - 7/7/12 at 1:44pm
