[Sponsored] Zowie FK1 Competitive Gaming Mouse review - by Ino - Page 193

post #1921 of 2101
Is it normal that the FK1 has a slight "bump" on the right side around this area?


I'm a bit confused as I thought this mouse was completely symmetric for ambidextrous use, but it is definitely "bulgier" on the right side than on the left. When I palm grip the mouse with my right hand I can feel the bump on my middle/ring finger while I can feel no such thing on the left side when I hold it with my left hand. I mean it's not a big deal, just wondering if I got a faulty unit or if this is normal.


Also there is a little dent on the bottom left corner of my mouse which annoys the hell out of me

Should be completely symmetrical, and that dent shouldn't be there either.

My unit has that little dent as well, I think it's normal

Mine has that dent too in the same location, and another really small one slightly below the gap, that divides LMB, and RMB.
Regarding the "bump": When looked at the mouse from certain angles, it does look like the mold bulges a bit. Then again, it looks the same on both sides. The mouse is perfectly symmetrical. I'm sure the difference you feel is a result of your being a right-handed person, thus having a different sensation in your left hand, resulting in your inability to hold the mouse the exact same way with both hands. I wouldn't rely on tactile response wink.gif

I have the dent too now that I have the FK1 in front of me. Just never noticed it before.

It's still perfectly symmetrical.

Its too hard to say, as with all things mice YMMV. For me I don't notice a great deal of difference between them. However I have just switched to an FK2 as I like my mice as light as possible. This is with big 22cm hands as well.

Like Sencha said, it's hard to give advise on mice. While I like the quite larger form of the FK1, it doesn't seem to have that great of an impact to my cramping hands after long FPS sessions (claw/finger). Where I do notice the overall larger body is when doing desktop stuff, and in games that don't rely on aim (thus don't force you into a certain grip) e.g. MOBAs, MMOs, story based games, pretty much anything not FPS wink.gif

I heard the Roccat Kone Pure Military has a better sensor implementation than this mouse, is that true?

Yes, native 5000dpi is better than zowie's tweaked 3200dpi
