ZOWIE FK - Page 72

If anyone else with a Talent was unsure how well it would track, here you go:


(ignore the spikes, that's just Audition getting creative connecting the dots)

Malfunction speed is ~3.4m/s but I didn't notice until I measured it. When it happens in game it feels like negative accel, I haven't ended up staring at the ceiling yet.

Does that graph means it does well with the talent? Or poorly?

It indicates that the tracking is good, maybe even great.

I have used the FK since about a month after its release. I used the AM before that.

For me the FK has solved the problems I had with the AM. The AM made my hand uncomfortable when used a long time without breaks. I also though it was hard to lift and the surface material was slippery. That is a complaint I have with almost all rubberized coatings.

In the FK, my hands never get uncomfortable. The mouse is wider in the front, and from the bottom to the top of the mouse, it goes from narrow to wide. This makes it much easier to lift and just easier to hold in general. The rubberized material is different on this mouse. It feels much less soft and rubbery, and more like textured plastic. It is pretty comfortable for me to hold, I never have to worry about slipperiness.

I am still interested though whether a glossy white version of the mouse will be released. I am already very satisfied with what I have, but if it would be released I would be tempted to try it out, even if the rubberized coating on the FK does not really bother me.

First of all, those DPI are only for the spec sheet. Zowie's "unconventional" steps are a result of their using a custom lens (i.e. different magnification of A3090), and miscalculation/marketing on their part. See posts #378-#388 of BST's thread for clarification.

As kazuyamishima mention above the FK coating is really nice. If you compare it to the ec2 coating its like night and day. I would need handball glue to be able to lift the ec2 as that coating makes it the moste slippery thing ever.

The coating on the FK is acceptable, nice to the touch without being slippery. When I compare it to just a cheap normal Logitech mouse, it actually manages to feel a little more grippy, a lot of special coating feel worse than the cheap logitech mouse that I use on my laptop.

Ugh, it looks like the switches are epoxied on. I couldn't get them loose by simply desoldering. WHY Zowie!!! Everyone that needs APM hates your crappy Huano switches. If anyone knows a method to get them off please let me know.

Wut? You can't take the solder off? Although it'd take more time/effort to take epoxy resin off, it should still be possible! Just search around for "how to remove epoxy resin" and you should be fine.

I didn't notice anything like that with either the AM or FK, but I only tested them for a day or two.
