Help choosing between zowie AM and CM storm spawn

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Heyas,

I am having difficulties deciding whether to use Zowie AM or CM Storm Spawn, I have both. Spawn with 61 fw.

I like Zowie's shape better, but it's harder to lift than Spawn. AM on the other hand feels like it has somekind of input lag (probably due to zowie custom lens).Spawn feels much more responsive, but on the other hand harder to control, maybe due to shape or maybe i'm not used to it yet.

AM has better cord, Spawn better buttons and wheel...

Are there any problems with Spawn w/ latest firmware anymore? Are all the 800, 1600 and 4000 dpi steps @ 1000 hz ok to use with similar performance?


I don't like either mouse tbh, but I want one with A3090 sensor. Should I consider other mouse perhaps and sell these two?


Thanks smile.gif

I would say Spawn, AM has problems with colored mousepads.


edit: get the g400 that's the best u're goign to get.

Since you have both already use one for a week and another for a week, then return back to first one and decide which is better for yourself.

Roccat Savu, but be aware about the sand-paprish sides and high LoD

Don't agree, but I'm biased with internal hardware.. as well as other things.

Ofc, but the OP doesn't use every surface, its a general statement.

have you looked at the deathadder?

How long have you used these two mice? You may want to stick with them for a while and see if you can get used them better.

I hated my G400 at first but got used to it after using it long time. (I still hate the "back part"...)

Deathadder and g400 are sadly too heavy and awkward for me frown.gif. I'd prefer the shapes similar to AM, does this exclude roccat savu?

So how's the Spawn these days any known problems exist anymore with the current firmware? I am noticing a little more angle snapping than on my Zowie AM, and I'm not liking it, still it beats zowie's input lag. How's Savu's shape, weight angle snapping compared to spawn, zowie? Spawn has imo a little too much angle snapping.

Thx ;-)


edit: I've used zowie AM for 6 months and Spawn another 6 months before I used Zowie. Now I changed back to Spawn for the time being since I noticed some weird input lag on Tribes:Ascend which I am not getting with Spawn.

I have both and prefer AM. Using AM atm. The Spawn is just not tall enough, I guess the shape is not for me.

If you don't like either as you say then definitely get something else. As for input lag, its either placebo or something wrong with your mouse/setup/computer.
