super subjective matter, the 3310 seems to work exceptionally well on most surfaces thumb.gif
and I think in this case, the feet are so large they'll work on most pads really well.
if you're looking to buy something, narrow it down to your preferences and I'm sure you will receive lots of help! smile.gif

Can you guys feel that little acceleration?
I'm kinda afraid of that, not sure if it will change my gameplay.

the mouse you currently have probably has a tiny bit of acceleration as well. No, its not easy to detect, let alone to feel.

Hi guys,

can someone please post a picture of the new Zowie FK1 and a Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical 1.1 in comparison?
My concern is that the DPI only go 400/800/1600/3200. What if i need/want 1000 DPI? The mouse speed should be similar to the Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical 1.1 on a 6/11 setting.


I've been going through so many mice* lately just to replace my Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical 1.1 *sigh*
I really hope the FK1 will be the last mouse i have to buy for the next years.

*Logitech G700s (way too slippery), Logitech Performance MX (sensor off-center), Steelseries Sensei MLG (mouse acceleration), Steelseries Rival (clicks get very hard after a couple of hours, coating looks horrible after 2 weeks), Madcatz R.A.T. 7 (right mouse button rattles, mouse too heavy with everything removed).

Bye

As if anyone here likely has such an old mouse that is deprecated.

Fyi, the mouse just showed up on Amazon. Currently out of stock, but you can still put your order in.

You're probably right.
I thought I felt a delay on the 3310 in the FK1. Maybe it's placebo.
Today I played for 2 hours straight with a lowsens of 0.7 @ 800 CPI and it felt brilliant. rolleyes.gif
I guess it has/had sth to do with the changes I (have to) make in sensitivity when comparing with the WMO (which I use on 3.8 sens mostly).

Not sure exactly what you mean, as the 3310 should be acceleration free.

I have one as many here probably still do.

@ yo-chi: Why do you need a comparison pic if your concern is about DPI?

I got two concerns, one is the size of the mouse, the other is the DPI.
I have used the IntelliMouse Optical 1.0 and 1.1 since the release in 1998 (1.0), and i'm still using the 1.1 today.
(been playing CounterStrike since beta 3.0)
