ZOWIE FK - Page 29

post #281 of 2197
I am curious how much it will cost here in Holland hopefully there will be a shop selling it with a return policy, I want to try it shape aswell looks more shaped towards my clawgrip.
But its hard to beat the roccat savu at the moment, only mouse shape wise who beats it for me is the cm storm spawn but the roccat savu is nearly as good to it and has better accuracy for me ingame.

Waiting for the white glossy version to hit the market. (if it ever gets released)

I never tried a SteelSeries mouse because they are laser. So I don't know if I would like their shape. Looking at them I would say they are to wide and not very tall. Two things I do not like. I don't want my hand dragging on the pad, I think that is stupid to do.

I do not claw grip and do not plan to ever. Although, to me the FK looks like it would be very good for my three finger palm grip. That is because the sides taper out noticeably, which will not require effort to lift. The arch of the mouse seems like it will fill my hand better than the AM.

Zowie never said they wouldn't do a white version. I just think it takes to long to do, they don't feel like doing it now. They likely want to get out as much mice they can to sell out to early demand. I hope they release a white version when the new batches hit Amazon. I will buy one for sure -- it doesn't hurt that the hardware is a know commodity.

Zowie just needs to ditch that lens and work on their firmware. Most complaints come from that lens when it comes to performance. I read an ESPlanet review on the FK and he complained about the lens. I am hearing that often these days. Heard the same thing with the Razer Viper. Why don't they learn?

Some people prefer pinky drag while playing.


Razer viper used an extremely early design. it wasn't technically suited for gaming in the first place.. IPS wise, Zowie mice are fine (imho, though could improve for those that want it), cursor precision could be adjusted a little though. Of course involves swapping HW.

FW for the most part is ok I suppose (At least in AM FG/FK) Maybe work on fixing internal clock at 500hz. Idk.

It feels like they do not want to release a version 2 of their mice. Meaning changing some hardware and working on the coding. Also fixing mold issues with their EC and AM. (Yeah I know the eVo can be considered v2.)

It's like... they are close to having a very solid mouse. Just a little here and a little there. Refinement is the word.

Man, Viper was my favorite mouse. It still holds a special place in my heart. If I could have a modern one with two side buttons and a great optical sensor I'd be in heaven.

The sides were better than the Diamondback.

Guys,

I have great news for all you desperate people in the States and other countries.

ZowieGear.dk have the Zowie FK in stock and they do ship outside of Denmark.

Link to the mouse: http://www.zowiegear.dk/shop/zowie-fk-3461p.html

The total price including shipping (FedEx) and PayPal-cost was ~95 USD *(New York). I know it's more expensive than GameJava, but they have it in stock and ready for you to order. thumb.gif

*Shipping cost for EU shipments should be ~11 EUR.

Thanks, will look at what the cost will be to ship to Holland. May still pull the trigger on this. The more I look and get feedback on the shape the more I want it :\

You're very welcome, Kazuyamishima.

Holland is 11 EUR, if I'm right. I hope mine is getting here by tomorrow.

Thanks for the rep, by the way. tongue.gif

I really hope they release a version with glossy sides as well. Until then I won't buy it and rather wait for BST's mouse.
