Hi all,

I bought the ec2 evo cl mouse and it looks awesome and tracks great.. but my coating started to chip off a week later. Has anybody else experienced this before. I'll attach a pic to show what it looks like.

Test3 Reso=2400| Speed 2.86m/s
with Enotus v0.1.4 on QCK+
In addition, there were problems on USB 3.0, which does not exist now with the USB 2.0.
Since I do not get the results of the review, I will again try 1000Hz
Edit:
Test1 Reso =400| Speed 3.45m/s 990Hz
Test2 Reso=1200|Speed 2.64m/s 995Hz
Test3 Reso=2400|Speed 3.55m/s 998Hz

not get to the 4 m / s frown.gif

I can't believe that they still have not fixed their 500hz setting, cm storm xornet gives me 499hz stable, DA BE 499stable, cm storm spawn 499 stable, 13 year old microsoft mice 499stable through hidusbf, zowie mice = 480 unless i set the mouse to 1000hz and then downsample the report rate with hidusbf, plug n play mouse they say, yea right ! :S

The FK 2014 doesn't have this issue, the coating is the same as the old FK 2013.

Neither my EC1 nor my FK nor the FK14 of my friends have that coating issue. Seems to be hit or miss with it really.

I've heard of this happening with the new FK, which supposedly uses the same coating... Good thing I just bought two of them. If the coating flakes on them I'm going to be pissed.

The buttons are described to be softer/lighter, how big of an difference is it? Coming from IME 3.0 I was set on the glossy white otherwise. Big enough to warrant going with the CL?

The IME 3.0 keys have no under or overtravel, something that I have also read can be an issue with the ECs. Did that change at all with the CL?

The possibility of coating issues made this all the harder as well - dont know if it would be worth waiting six months or so with that in mind, and also the sensor differences to the sans CL Evo Pro (the "orientation" of the center point) - I want to try new things but mainly want similar shape and higher polling rate right now. Maybe the difference is overstated?

Is the new EC CL mice stable at 500hz? I have EC2 eVo and AM. Both of them need to be manually set at 500 with hidusbf for a stable 500hz.
