aside from the not so optimal max speed rates in the 'speed test' I don't see much wrong with the zowie aside from bizzare rates at 1000hz polling. The dpi does not bother me as I have been using 450 since way back, sometime around 7 years ago or so.

Edit: sorry just realized that you mentioned the internal hardware, I was half asleep when I posted that, whats wrong with zowies internals it would be really good if you elaborated on that, you probably have something posted deep within the forum but Im really bad at digging old stuff up XD.

dimensions and weight released

127 length 36 height 27 width? 85 without cable vs 129x39x60 and 88 of the AM. Is the width they released correct or did i get height and width mixed up...

The max speed is fine. The CPI is more like 500 not 450. The Kingsis lens (or possibly the non infrared LED) increases LOD on red cloth mouse pads, whereas the standard lens on a DeathAdder reduces LOD on red.

The mouse isn't what people want it to be. So for those who would have bought an AM if it wasn't so thin are going to be disappointed. Which is not something surprising. The front is something like 60mm and the rear is like 64mm.

The problem with the mice, the AM and the modified AM (FK), is that it is 58mm at the narrowest. The FK is smaller than the AM! Although only by a millimeter in length and rear width -- with exception to height. It does have nice touches to the design but it isn't the AM people want.

Would I get it over the AM if I didn't have one? Probably, because of the stress relief.

What I like is: the grooves to the finger area, the mouse wheel groove, stress relief, the angle to the bottom edges, the top shell piece for the buttons and the side area in the front.

If I could get one that is like 131mm long. 41mm tall, 61-62mm front, 60mm middle and 64mm rear. Also to remove a lot of the bottom material like the EC to stop the mouse from bottoming out when used on a not so level pad (debris). Oh yeah -- and a standard lens.

Hm.... that explains why my EC evo skips on "hien soft" black if i flick it fast enough and/or have some dirt underneath the lens, while the mouse is pretty much skip-proof when using the "hien VE" red


haven't measured the LoD on red hien but it is very low on the black one, less than 1cd !

I notice they have split the LMB and RMB further apart, and I'm wondering if this will give the mouse a softer click more similar to the EC2 eVo, which also uses huano switches but has less firm clicks than the AM. Personally I was a pretty big fan of the original AM except that the narrowness at the front of the mouse caused me to narrow my grip a bit and eventually led to some aching in my palm. I wonder if this mouse will alleviate that symptom. If so, I'll be quite happy.
