thanks, are there any hard numbers on that input lag?
I am aware of CPI, drivers etc.... but what is CPS ? (Googled didn't help)

We need an OCN mouse dictionary or something.

No numbers on input lag but if there's one mouse on the market that has actually noticeable smoothing, it would be the DA 2013...unless some kind of firmware updated nerfed it.

kk, sound like Zowie sensor > DA sensor.... how about the coating, if it flakes, does it become really unusable? I think I'll get it and if it flakes just RMA it

Depends on your sensitivity. 3310 is better than both 3090 and 3988 if you ask me. aka Avior 7000, M45, Rival.

Zowie has nearly zero warranty support. I wouldn't go buying it trusting that they will RMA at all.

kk....Ill look at the Mionar but it's better despite the 7000dpi?

I wouldn't really go above 2500, the 2300 from Zowie sound like enough, I currently have 1600 on my DA

Edit: I'm taking it to the suggestion thread, as this is going a bit off-topic, thanks for all the answers!

My one RMA with Zowie for a double clicking M1 went pretty good, but YMMV.

Yeah I hear too many horror stories from other people to recommend them for any kind of reliable service.

I initially sent a general inquiry to Zowie about the coating issue. I received a response after one day and was told that coating peeling affects some of the initial batches, and that the problem has now been fixed with newer ones, so that I should get a good mouse if I RMA.

I purchased my mouse in February, coating flaking started after a couple weeks. Given retail turnover I would guess it will still be a while before the faulty mice are all gone.

As for RMA, I just sent my mouse off about 5 days ago to the US RMA department, so we will see how the turnaround is. It took them nearly a week to respond and confirm my RMA request. I was waiting for a time when I would be away for a while (travelling for about 17 days) so I wouldnt be bothered missing my mouse.

Other than the coating issue, the only thing I would like to change about this mouse (ec1 cl) is I would like it to be lighter.
