What exactly is the tracking issue with the FK? I mean in terms of real world impact on performance.

I'm using the FK2013 at the lowest DPI settings / 1000hz.

So what may I ask is the difference between the original fk and the fk1? I have the chance to pick up a normal fk for 40 bucks and was thinking of going for it

Alleged input lag @ the 450/1150 steps. Max tracking speed isn't as high as 3310 mice. That's about it.

FK1 is slightly bigger + better sensor.

Fk1 is slighty bigger, better sensor, no tracking issue though I've never experienced it on my fk

Thanks for the replies, I had a ss sensai for a bit but the thumb buttons on the right side seemed to really annoy me, has anyone had something similar? Do the one's on the fk annoy you as much?

I have Xai and I have to say that FK2014 compared to SS:xai is a micro mouse. Fk1 is bigger, but also diffrence is noticable. I dont have problems with thumb buttons.

Right now, I use SS: XAI, but also have fk2014 and fk1 xD
post #1797 of 2101
Not really they are so close to the shell of the mouse that i for one never notice them when i use my FK1(bought a new one)

the side buttons are not as pronounced as on the avior 7000 for example but then again i never notice them on that mouse either due to my grip.

So really its hard to tell because some people will rub against the right side buttons due to their grip while others like me wont.

Wouldn't go back to a 3090 after experiencing the 3310 by Zowie's FK1. Hz was unstable on some 3090 Zowie mice, weird CPI steps (from 450 to 1150 is huge).

I tested the FK1 with 6 feet (3 top and 3 bottom). On black cloth it still tracked but a hair (really, a hair) moving the mouse up it would stop tracking. That's when I noticed that THAT is even too low LOD for me. Something messed up with 3 feet I can say. So after a week of using it, I removed the top feet set, and continued using it with 4 feet (2 top and 2 bottom). Glide is definitely better than with the default 2 feet because of less/none scrape on pad. Tracking is absolutely fine on all of my pads I have (that includes a pink Artisan Hien) and LOD is a very nice level. The CPI steps get a bit down though (380 instead of 400 and 760 instead of 800).

Maybe I wouldn't have tracking problems with 6 feet, if I would change the LOD setting to a higher one instead of the "cloth level". But I don't wanna miss the low LOD and with the other settings I always got a too high one.

I'm in love with Amazon. Really, it took only 8 days to receive my mouse, and I paid the cheaper shipping (6usd).
That's just INSANE.

Now I have 2 FK1s, what should I do? -.-
post #1800 of 2101
Experiment with the second? Break the side-button pcb in half to make it one set only to reduce weight (I remember seeing someone do this with one of the zowie mice somewhere), try sanding/flexing the shell to make the clicks lighter, etc.
