But there is only so much you can do with 400dpi so playing on a 20cm/360 sens will be definately look and feel a bit wonky no matter the screen resolution and/or player FOV, the sensor is also prone to negative accel once you go faster than 1.5m/s during a single swipe, so a regular 3090 mouse on a black mousepad and/or a zowie one on a red surface is a much better alternative overall, right ? smile.gif

Any 3090 sensor based mouse will likely feel better on a light colored pad. This is because the sensor's frame rate may reach the 6,469 maximum. If the mouse has a bright LED then it may reach the maximum frames on a dark surface.

A frame rate of 9,000 does sound nice. I wonder how much frames the new 2013 DeathAdder does.

The 3090 only goes down to 800 CPI natively, the Zowie has only 1800 native, anything below that will feel different (technically speaking). If you like to use below 800 and can live with low malfunction speed, the Microsoft mice are still some of the best for overall "feel". However, these days 800 CPI is usable in many games -- your sensitivity can be lower to compensate.

The lowest CPI I would use is 500, typically I would use 600-650, 1200 is the maximum for me.

It would be nice to have a high resolution sensor, with a frame rate of 9,000, that can poll at 1,000 Hz and has a malfunction speed of at least 4m/s. Preferably it would allow you to choose your own native steps. If it didn't, selectable steps of: 500, 750 (optional), 1000, 1250 (optional), 1500, 1750 (optional), 2000.

It is way over due for an update.

You can feel the difference between 6k and 9k FPS? Or is it more about a bit smoother (as in more accurate) tracking, kinda which you would spot in paint only?

I cannot say with certainty.

Using a mouse (say the Zowie) on a red pad feels very different to me than on a black pad while gaming. Whether that has to do with frame rates or sensor responsivity I do not know.

If the sensor takes more frames it will have more data to work with. You would think this will allow better detection of motion, which would lead to a more fluid cursor.

Okay, just was curious. At least more frames can't hurt...

Hey guys, I've done some research and have seen that the Zowie FK is not available currently in Canada at this time. I currently work at Infonec Computers store (sales and technical), and I would like to announce that the Zowie FK will be arriving within 3-4 weeks from now due to shortage on production.

As far as pricing goes, I will keep you updated and list the pricing once it is available.

P.S: I'm so desperate for one of these myself, biggrin.gif

I was unaware of this. I knew the sensor may have some trouble on multi-coloured mousepads, but had no idea that even a different solid color could make a difference with this sensor (even though I have experienced in other sensors).

Did anyone else test this and notice a difference? Right now i am using the Steelseries Qck heavy and am pretty satisfied, but I am also interested in trying some lighter color mousepad like the one zowie offers.

Yea I'm also interested in what mousepads people are using with their FK. I'm using a $1 mousepad, but it's friction is so high that when I move my mouse, sometimes the mousepad moves too.

I use a solid black Func XL. Works well, super low LOD.

I had a Goliathus speed when I used the FK. Tracked quite well.
