Sigh, received this the other day and the scroll wheel wasn't working right out of the box. Skipping scrolls when you do one in either direction, like many other users report. My EC2 eVo wheel stopped registering scrolls too (least it was an issue that developed over time rather than right out of the box though...)

Such a shame that Zowie are letting stuff like this out as their mice really are good apart from that... sadly, it's a deal breaker for me because I weapon scroll in most FPS games. I bet with all the lost profit on RMAs issued they could have invested in fixing their rubbish scroll wheels.

Being sent another one, hopefully it'll be okay.

I notice mine doesn't register when scrolling up sometimes. I went ahead and did an RMA also through Amazon, real simple. I still like this mouse, but this scroll wheel is so meh.

My scroll actually works so apparently there might be a new fixed batch and an older batch with screwed up scrolls.

I would assume they're all the same. Some "faulty" due to tolerance range of the factory design.


If they wanted to remain optical, it would be wise to redesign the entire mechanical system. Or take the easy way out and drop the optical mechanical system and go Mechanical rotary.

Mechanical would be less reliable over a long period of time though wouldn't it?

Yeah that sounds what I would think. Yield. Loose tolerances.
