Sounds good. Really responsive dosed clicks are a important factor to me. the am wasnt bad, but it gets better as you can feel with the ec series for sure. i will test the fk so soon as possible anyway.

The AM has two different switches for the main buttons. The mouse 2 is lighter than mouse 1. So they could have just used that version of the Huanos on the FK's main buttons. They do not have a magnet nearly as strong, making them kind of feel like the EC's mold. Although from what I can tell the EC has the stronger version Huano switches.

The mold changes the perception of the switches. Since the mold of the FK has the switches in front of the scroll wheel, they will always feel stiffer when using the same switch, compared to the EC's mold or DeathAdder.

I personally like the stiffer switches for my play style, because the magnet is stronger it creates a very distinct and fast reset. So I am pretty disappointed to hear the went with the slow reset versions. I rather have Omrons than those versions.

The G500 is an extremely heavy mouse when compared to the AM/FK, even with an empty weight cartridge. The FK will probably be a more comfortable shape, IMO, but also keep in mind that the FK is an ambidextrous mouse, whereas the Logitechs are ergonomically right handed. They are pretty different beasts, and you might want to try out an AM (or FK if you can) before you commit to buy if $$ is a factor.

Personally I'm a huge fan of super light mice, and wish there was a Mico with more than 3 buttons for voice comms/PTT. I'm hoping the FK will at least get close to that.

Thanks a ton man!
I don't mind going for a lighter mouse, or if it's ambidextrous. Don't really mind having to adjust, just sick of the G500s acceleration, I kinda wish a good mouse with 3 side buttons like the G500 w/o acceleration and the other crap existed. frown.gif Would defs love to try one before I buy, but living in Australia in a smallish town kinda of stops me being able too(doubt anyone here has even heard of Zowie LOL).

Really hard to tell. The AM and FK are both quite different from those two Logitech mice. Those are both very ergonomic in shape, while the AM and FK are ambidextrous symmetrical mice.

I also have to agree with the previous comment that the g500 will also feel completely different because of the weight. The g500 is one of the heaviest mice i have ever used and they have completely disregarded weight in the design. The am/fk were made specifically to light. Other differences that most would call improvements is that the sensor is centered on the am/fk and the weight is evenly distributed. The scroll wheel on the g500 is also flimsy and hard to use.

If you like the shape however, the better option for a nice mouse with a good sensor would be the g400 (or keep the mx 518), or you could just try the am/fk to see whether the shape agrees with your hand. G400 seems like the safer bet tbough

Oh, dear...

So I got the Zowie AM today, but the scroll wheel is "weird". I uploaded a video on YouTube - could you guys maybe tell me if it's RMA-time or if it's just "normal"? mad.gif

Also, if I "shake" the mouse, the scroll wheel "rattles".

*YouTube-link

I'm sorry if I posted this the wrong place. It's just I've seen the pictures of the scroll wheel on both AM and FK. Maybe you guys could help me out.

Thanks.

Both cases apply to my AM as well, and I always hated it. mad.gif
The stiff buttons, the horrible wheel and sides not perfect for lifting the mouse are the negatives for me with the AM. The positives are a good general shape, awesome cord and good performance. FK seems to have improved on these elements, but I will probably still wait for BST...

AM is still a solid mouse in my opinion. I kind of tolerate the flaws.

Thank you for your answer. I'm going to RMA it anyways.

But you're telling me that the sound is normal? I'm not sure, but my scroll wheel feels weird.

I love the stiff buttons, the mouse feels too small for me, but let's see. If I get a refund, I might order another AM - might order the FK. thumb.gif

By the way, what's a "BST"?

Just a normal AM scroll wheel.
I had 2 AM, 1 AM-GS and 1 AM-FG.
Scroll wheel is the same on every single one.
