I'd love to, but I paid 130usd on the second one -.-
taxes everywhere

Asus seems like the only company that doesn't implement huge RTC error overdrive where it looks worse with it on than off.

Not sure how BenQ can call themselves "gaming monitors" with their overdrive looking like that. Even office monitors get better overdrive. Seems like someone would test this stuff before they sell them?

The only problem with the 248 is that lightboost causes "heavy" input lag to put things on your own scale, r0ach. You would feel it immediately.

So after about 4months of usage , I am beginning to feel like I'm getting "Double clicks and buttons letting go while not intended" . Meaning in CSGO , when I'm about to hold a smoke to throw , I am very sure that I was still depressing down the button but it somehow it didn't , it registered as a single click.

It happens occasionally , not all the time though , same for the double click issue , I remember correctly that I wanted to pause a video or something , but it happen to pause and play at the same time , happened a few times thus I am very sure that I myself didn't press it twice. The huanos/shell itself is already too hard for me to press it that fast twice anyway.

RMA. I had that on my original FK, got a replacement after sending it in. FK1 is still going stron for me.

Thanks for your suggestion. My only issue with sending it back from RMA is that I'm worried I would be getting a worst one with lens rattle or the same scroll wheel that isn't fixed. Explains why I didn't send it for RMA earlier on when I discovered the RMB grinding against the middle , dealing with postage and stuffs ..

Sorry , do you know if anyone has reported that their newly bought FK1's no longer have any of the stated issues? Didn't quite keep up on the thread lately.

Some people get perfect ones, some still have wheel bugs. It's a gamble it seems frown.gif

The scroll wheel thing fascinates me since I've now put the 3310 guts in my FK13 shell 3 times (yes, I'm incredibly indecisive) and the wheel is always flawless in the FK13 shell, but I have the issue in the FK1. I feel like 3 times is more than just coincidence and says that the wheel mechanism works just fine, and that there's something that goes wrong when it's all sitting in the FK1.

Pull the scroll wheel up, then scroll as you are forcing the wheel upward. If it doesn't register it is the shell of the FK1 (just like the EC1/2). I bet this is the case because the front appears to be higher, but the scroll wheel is not as they are recycling the PCB design from the AM.

It's not a hard test to do. I don't understand why you guys don't do it and continue to complain...

I know the 3310 sensor has multiple native resolutions but is there one that performs better than another (as well as polling rate)? I've tried searching but I can't find what I'm looking for.
