Some of the people that post on this forum are absolute jokers, the quality of a sensor means only so much, why don't you take a look at the big picture and stop being so retarded, I get so sick of defending SteelSeries I feel like a bloody poster boy for them but some of you people are just idiots.
To me both are important, I can't play well with a A9500 mouse. And those flaws are not really flaws, they are mere preference (like dpi steps, mouse feet, size), hearsay (input lag, lens ruins sensor) or apply to all mice in general (true dpi varies). About the unstable Hz see below

So basicly what you are saying is that a PERFECT mouse according to most posts in Zowie FK thread works on 2 on 1000 mousepads on the market and "does spike sometimes on the 500Hz setting but it isn't crazily spiking". I'm sorry but even ****ty Steelseries and Razer mice not to mention cheap, reliable mice like for example Logitech g100s or Razer Abyssus don't do that and work on every mousepad on the market. In the ambidexterous, small mice department Zowie is complete garbage compared to both those mice (unless all you care is build quality).
I always considered myself picky about mice (hence I own(ed) a lot) but my FK simply works like a charm. I only tried 2 mousepads, the NP+ and the PureTrak Talent, both worked absolutely fine. The only downside I see on the FK is the max tracking speed which is lower than on the competitors but still good enough for me. And as I asked before: What is the problem with unstable Hz if you can't feel a difference in cursor behaviour? Mine isn't even spiking that much at 500 Hz, at least it never goes higher than that. And I find it funny that you mention the Abyssus as a positive example because that mouse really caused me trouble in terms of mousefeet and cursor stability. Otherwise I would be gaming with it probably.
I think your bashing of the FK and those that like it is unjustified because you base it solely on your experience with one mouse. User experience varies, and I don't think people here get paid to hype the FK, they simply like it the way it is or hate it the way it is. No conspiracies.
