ZOWIE FK - Page 17

post #161 of 2197
The mouse is wider in the front over the AM and the same in the rear. The middle is still slender. The thing is that it tapers outward like the Diamondback. So think of it as a wider in the front AM that isn't as high.

I want to know what you guys think of the scroll wheel compared to the AM. Is it better in your opinion and how?

I only used an AM for a day or so - but the wheel on the FK feels about the same - perhaps *slightly* easier to roll. Scrolling produces a bit more noise than the EC2, but exhibits none of the EC2's side-to-side wiggling / looseness.

Clicks feel firm like the AM to me - might have to do the ol' omron swap with this one.

Yellow accents are cute but look a bit crap w/ my green ikea desk rolleyes.gif

If you open it up can you take some pictures of the scroll wheel and the middle shell section that keep the scroll wheel in place?

Received the mouse today. Had to catch a flight so I only had time to open it and feel it for a few minutes. The scroll wheel IMO is much easier to scroll and not as tactile. Huge improvement over the am! Ill post some pics later tonight.

Another note, left and right mouse clicks feel closer to the EC series. Less pressure needed than the AM. And like mentioned above the surface is still rubber feeling but if your hands are dry you can still grip the mouse, it's very nice.

They said beginning of februari, but I have been unable to get my hands on one so far.

Here's an scroll wheel comparison for am/fk
They look identical to me, but the fk does scroll easier and doesn't move at all left or right.

Thanks for the reviews, looks like I'll be ordering one soon :]

I can't choose between the AM and FK.

I've contacted WEBDanes.dk about the FK - waiting for them to get back to me, since they don't have it on their site/in stock.

(I live in Denmark).

Ah oh! That can't be good.



Does the shell have 4 screws to hold it together? As in it does not hook onto the front like the AM but has screws under each mouse foot?

Can you take pictures of the middle section of the mouse? The middle mold that is screwed onto the bottom mold. A picture of the inner portion where there are nubs to hold down the scroll wheel.

I don't have my camera with me to show you, sorry.

The board is the same as the AM. Everything is pretty much. Only thing I can say that may have changed is the magnet in the main switches, the side buttons as well and the springs in the scroll wheel.

Depends on your grip. Nearly everything is the same.

The middle and rear are the same. The middle width is generally an area of complaint, as it is 58mm. Sometimes the height is an issue for people. The AM is 38mm high and the FK is said to be 36mm.

I personally do not like mice that are 38mm or under in height. They tend not to give you enough space for your fingers with the typical two fingers on the right side grip. I don't like my hand rubbing the mouse pad. I rather have 40mm or higher in height. I also like longer mice so I can use more of my palm on the mouse than on the mouse pad. So a mouse that is 127mm or longer.
