Quote:I like the AM over other mice for many reasons.
I like how all the buttons don't have as much flex as the EC. The buttons are in-front of the scroll wheel instead of behind it. The buttons are not mushy like the DeathAdder 3.5G. The AM doesn't have a scroll wheel issue like the EC. It doesn't have a braided cable like the DeathAdder. It polls higher than the DeathAdder 3.5G. I don't need drivers like I do with the DeathAdder.
The AM is taller than the FK and wider. The side buttons are easier to actuate than the FK. The palm area is more supportive. It has coating options. It doesn't have a mold flaw with the top shell piece like the FK. The top shell piece extends all the way to the sides, whereas the FK's top piece stops before it reaches the sides of the mouse, so there is less usable area with the FK. The main buttons feel taller on the AM. The switches in my AM-FG are lighter than the FK's, they're more suitable for the shell, this why I use my AM PCB in the FK.
You may wonder if there is anything I like about the FK. I like how the scroll wheel area extends all the way to the front. The lower placed side buttons. The stress relief for the cable. The taller scroll wheel. The bottom shell's shape at the edges. The lighter side buttons. Conceptually, I like how the top of the sides extend outwardly.
If the shape was better thought out and properly tested with various users, the FK would be my go to mouse, even though the sensor isn't that great. If the Kana v2 had a better design for the sides (and a slight change to the rear) of the mouse, I would rather use that over the FK.
