Yea, like I implied: Marketing rules all nowadays
I'm so tempted to buy a Zowie but I just don't feel confident about their quality ... I really don't want an other 60 - 65 euro paperweight in a few months ...
So if anyone has any hands-on experience with Zowie mice (I have a keyboard myself which I'm decently satisfied with) then it'd be greatly appreciated.
On an other note: couldn't stand the lack of grip on the G400 anymore so I made a small cheap modification: I call it the "stick electrical tape to your mouse because mouse manufacturers seem to have Spiderman's hands"-mod
What do you need:
- electrical tape (colour doesn't matter, pick whatever you like
- scissors or cutting knife
- a mouse with some kind of terrible coating (G400 in this case)
- something to wipe off the grease / dirt that's on the mouse (I'd advise against using any cleaning products since a lot of these coatings can be easily damaged)
As you can see from the pictures below you don't even need to have any sort of skill with the scissors ! DISCLAIMER: if you ever want to remove the tape again then I reckon there will be some glue residue left over. You might be able to get it off completely, or you might not. By doing this you agree not to kill me if you ruin your mouse
1) Hold the mouse and memorize where exactly you fingers are making contact with the mouse and where you need the grip
2) Wipe the mouse clean of any grease or dirt in order for the tape to stick properly
3) Cut tape to size (you can round the corners a bit etc. to fit the shape of the mouse
4) Apply the tape. Use stroking motions with your fingers / thumb using a decent amount of pressure so that it has good contact and preferably no air bubbles
5) Enjoy !
The end result:
PS: Yes the tape will look a bit dirty and I don't know how long it will last but it's not like this is a time-consuming or expensive "mod"
EDIT: It sure provides a lot of grip but does seem to get greasy fast ... might not be ideal for longer gaming sessions ....Edited by Bloitz - 1/7/13 at 8:17am
