[Sponsored] Zowie FK1 Competitive Gaming Mouse review - by Ino - Page 114

post #1131 of 2101
Okay, I'm a little confused about LOD. After I stacked my mouse skates, my DPI actually went down cause now my mouse sits higher off the ground.

So should I raise or lower my LOD to compensate. Right now I'm using the "plastic mouse pad mode" on a plastic pad.

Also which button is Mouse 4. Is that the bottom or top button on the side?

CPI will decrease if the sensor is further away from the surface. This is normal. Adjusting LOD will probably not change this. Mouse 4 is the rear-most button of the two side buttons.

I recently got a fk1 and trying to test it with that mousetester.exe program.
But the plotted graph i get is nowhere near what is shown on the first page.
Is there a specific way to move the mouse when testing? first time testing mouse.

Are you making sure to change the graph to xVelocity vs time? If not, it's bottom left in a drop down under plot type.

I tried e-mailing Zowie's customer support a few times now. They NEVER respond.

I tried e-mailing Zowie's customer support a few times now. They NEVER respond. I too don't really ever change from 1600 DPI except lately I was just messing around with different settings. The scroll wheel problem people have described has been happening too. In VLC media player specifically. Thanks for the advice.

Cheers.

Good luck getting in touch with them. My eVo CL's coating started peeling away real bad. Sent two emails to their support and one to their marketing director. No response. Gave up and bought a FK1.

Seems kind of ironic I would buy another product from a company who releases defective merchandise and fails to support it. I like the direction Zowie takes with their mice, specifically their driverless operation. They need to QA their products a little more and answer support requests though. I actually think their support staff may be on vacation or maybe they quit/fired. I've sent pre-purchase questions to Zowie in the past and gotten same day responses.

Do you measuring it with a ruler or without it? If with, that could mean you have bad mouse pad or whatever you are using under your mouse.

1. Try to not measure DPI, but enter it manually
2.Try to swipe as fast as you can back and forth a few times when you are collecting information.

That could help.
