Review of the Zowie AM-FG - Page 4

post #31 of 39
Nice to see that they fixed the issue of the right and left buttons touching. I wonder if they plan on fixing it for the previous versions. Not really crazy about gloss or white.

hey mate,

the previous versions got fixed already in the second batch which arrived europe.
if you buy a zowie am or am-gs on bigger shops, you should get a fixed one. =)

good luck!

I can confirm this. I just got my Zowie AM from Amazon last week. There's no overlapping issue, or any other issues so far. Very high quality overall.

I think it was only the very first batch that had this issue, so I wouldn't worry about ordering one

Does anyone know if the mouse 2 switch is an Omron? The one I just got sounds and feels different between mouse 1 and 2. The side buttons feel stiffer than the DeathAdder.

If that is the case Zowie needs to stop changing the switches out. Who wants to buy a pair of mice yet have them feel different from each other?

The only thing that is the same with the AM and the EC1/2 Evo is mouse 1. Everything else is very different.

Does the 450 DPI step on AM feel "delayed" as on EC eVo?

Welcome to basic tolerances and there for lack of consistency.

Mine doesn't feel that way, however this is the only thing I've noticed:

Huano-switches' stiffness (Click to show)

I could not click as fast as with the FG's shell. (I don't own an AM anymore, so I'm not able to do further testing, sorry).

Judging from my tests, it's not only the Huano switches, but it also has something to do with the AM's shell not being as light or "flexible" as the AM-FG is.

I haven't been able to figure out what exactly it is, but as I mentioned, the FG's shell feels "lighter" or more "flexible". If there's someone out there with both the AM-FG and AM, give the tests I did a try and let me know what you think.

I do not know whether the question of mouse 2 has been settled, but my AM-FG definitely is different as to mouse 1 and 2 response. Mouse 1 registers at a lower position than mouse 2, and feels therefore less crisp. Is that the difference you noticed? (I know it's a long time you might not even have the mouse any more. Noticed the difference today, recalled to have read something somewhere here about it, searched the forum and found this post.)
