ZOWIE FK - Page 27

Rubber coatings are pretty much the same. Grip is more about texture/friction. Rubber doesn't really give you that.

The shell concept of the EC and AM/FK are different. The switches will not feel the same, even when they are.

Basically every mouse... Though, I kinda disagree to an extent.

Omron will feel like omron regardless of tooling. biggrin.gif (Granted the change you're talking about it still there)

I'm sure he meant the actuation force.

mhmm

I agree, omrons feel the same with all my mice that use it, 1.1/v3/krait/DA/AM(modded)/FK(modded) regardless of shape/size

Was it hard to replace the switches on the zowie am to Omrons?

Again... Yes they always will feel the same, but I was referring to actuation force. I made the assumption he was also.

If you know how to solder, no. Unless you cannot live without the AM, I don't see the point of changing one or two switches. I rather keep the warranty.

Have you ever soldered before? It's fairly simple and takes a minute or 2 at most with the right tools. Wouldn't recommend buying all the parts if you don't have it yet just to change the microswitches though.

The only tricky part is removing the initial solder.

I guess these days most people are to entrenched in habit. I can switch between 4 different mice and still perform well. Particular switches and scroll wheels, as long as they function, are a non issue. If any thing should be important to someone it would be ergonomics, then sensor.

Most people that are so nit picky about mice are likely using LCDs with 60Hz. I cannot take those people's complaints seriously. tongue.gif

Hmm, yeah I have the equipment but you're right about the warranty part; I'll probably just leave them as they are for a while and see if I get used to them. It's the am-fg and they do feel lighter than the EC1 Evo I had so I'll wait and see. Thanks for the info guys. thumb.gif
