AFAIK you should always use 1000 unless the mouse is known to not be stable at 1000

I guess I'm just too used to 400-800 dpi on my older mice that 1600 dpi feels fast. It's weird because I had an old Deathadder 3G and that was around 1600dpi but it didn't feel as fast as this one on the desktop.

got a fk1 with a functional scroll wheel now from amazon. second try...
gonna see if i like the shape for long term use. coming from a 2013 DA
post #1727 of 2101
I just tested the FK 2014 holy crap is that thing a mess - it tracks worse then a Sensei RAW on Cloth no matter the DPI / Pollingrate so much pixel walk and inconsistency. Wow! I hope the FK1 isn't as bad as this ... FK 2014 back FK1 on the way ...

If you still have the FK2014, keep it.

If you prefer its shape, just put the FK1 contents into it biggrin.gif

Apparently I ordered it as new from a german retailer (they still have them in stock). And no I'm not going to keep it ... it 's horrible just horrible compared to the Rival, G402, G502, Kana V2, Sensei RAW and even worse tracking then the XAI on my Puretrak Talent Clothpad no matter the combination non of them ever behaved as bad as this. I even tried 2300 DPI with 4/11 Windows Sensitivity but it doesn't change the Pixel Walk at slower Movements especially when you need to be accurate it just spasms out like hell / is totally unstable no matter the Pollingrate (1000/500) or DPI (1150/2300). I don't even need to do further festings to notice that and I'm certainly not going to use it at 400 DPI with my 27 ' screen. The only good thing I noticed was that at 2300 DPI and 4/11 or 3/11 the mouse had almost no input lag compared to the others but it doesn't help with the **** accuracy, stability and reliability (practical and not theoretical).

Also I think I'll like the FK1 shape more since I love the Sensei Shell (well certainly not the derpy build-quality) and the FK2014 is a bit smaller while the FK1 should come closer (theoretical at least) so I'm wondering how it will fare. To be honest I never could live with any Zowie Mice I tested every single one of them had flaws that were an absolute Dealbreaker (mostly Sensor / Lens related) to me personally so I'm not putting my hopes to high even when so many people say it 's so good. In the end I have to use it so ...

Well most of the things I disliked about the 3090's from Zowie have been fixed in the FK1 for me, so who knows.
