ZOWIE FK - Page 62

post #611 of 2197
Hello all!

I'm new to the board. Thanks for all the great discussion.

I have been playing fps games with the FK mouse for about two - three weeks now and it has allready started to misbehave for me. Not the tracking, that is just superb. But the mouse1 button has started to make a squeaky sound when you press it repeatedly. I was searching the web for people that had the same issue and found this youtube-film.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFR2q7oMIeM (the sound starts 25 secs in)

Anyone of you guys that have the same issue with your mouse? I just returned it to the store cause it's too annoying to play with for me. I was thinking of ordering another one and hope that this one was just a bad egg and if I get a new one it has a better build, or if I should look at some other mouse with the same sensor like the Zowie Ec2 EVO that I guess would work good with a claw grip (the EC1 seems too big).

What do you guys think of this?

Pansar,
mine does that, too. But not when I press it repeatedly. If I push it once, for example for hold a grenade in a game, and release it.
Then its squeaky. But I don't care, to be honest.

Okey, to me it's a bit too annoying. When I start to hear it I drop my concentration a bit from game.

then you should go for a replacement, maybe you have more luck with a new one.

When I had my ec2 evo it would squeak when I held it down or rapid click, I looked at the front of the mouse and noticed that the front middle corner of the left button(the one close to the scroll wheel) was rubbing against the body of the mouse causing it to squeak. I took a small file and took a little bit off the tip and then it worked perfectly, you guys may want to check that.

Would drive me crazy, but maybe easy to fix - will check at home - also have one now (not a keeper, still think real omron and alps encoder feel better).

How would you consider the EC2 evo is compared to the FK if you think aside the squeak issues? The fit and overall performance for a claw grip user.

edit: I ask this since I can't try it out before I buy it.

My FK squeaks occasionally also. Don't think you need to RMA it, will probably get another one that squeaks.

My FK squeeks too... Maybe it's because of the hardness of the buttons (the press).

I can't talk about the FK since I've not owned one, but the ec 2 evo can be clawed just fine since it's a small mouse; the only thing I disliked were the huano switches and the wobbly scroll wheel but is all preference though.
