zowie ec2 evo cl problems

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I bought this mouse on amazon around a month ago and now I see some the coating of the top of the mouse peeling off and the mouse 5 button having a weird click to it now. What should I do about this problem, would Zowie do a RMA for it?

Return it via amazon.
Much faster and less problems.

Just out of curiosity, does your scroll wheel work flawless? Does it skip scrollsignals when scrolling slowly up or are the signals sometimes delayed? With delayed I mean, that the tactlie feel and the signal are not coincident

RMA it, I got mine a little more than a month ago. What batch is yours from? mine starts with X1300. I haven't had any coating problems yet.

I'm starting to see this on my new zowie fk 2014 mouse. It's starting to peel so I'm sending back for refund with amazon. Might try the avior 7000 or go back to the rival since I loved the sensor.

Avior 7000 has the same sensor as the Rival.

You could also try the Naos 7000, same sensor (3310) but with a super comfy right handed shape.

confirmed coating problems after 4 months of use.
there is a long crack in the coating of my ec2 evo cl, it almost looks like a thick dark hair stuck to the shell of the mouse but the coating actually split.

batch # starts EC2e3X1300
ordered from Amazon US in January.

not gonna RMA or anything as it doesn't effect me, just something to note.

still no issue on my vanilla FK though, which as the same coating.

stick with cm storm alcor if you want a mini-deathadder, never liked those oversized feet on zowie mice, not to mention the jittery "native" 2300 dpi step
