If you mean pay a whole 0.70$ for 2 meters? Yeah ok lol.

Either way you'll need both. My vacuum pump still collecting dust.

You don't need solder wick or a vacuum pump at all for desoldering through-hole mounted components... Especially the switches are super easy to desolder except for some rare cases where there's something else blocking the access. Even then I'd start by removing the excess with the vacuum pump and rest with the wick.

Solder wick is generally quite expensive at least in here. Bought 1.6 m for 6€.

Have any owners of the FK1 also tried the Steelseries Kana 1 mouse?

My grip looks the same as the reviewer (Ino.) in the first post who states the mouse feels perfect for him. However the Kana is also an ambi mouse with a similar looking shape and I didn't like the Kana. I much prefer my Deathadder.

Wondering if I will like the FK1.

I have the kana and the side buttons were the worst ever. Misclicking galore...

Just do the rma, as annoying as it is.

This sucks.... I contacted Zowie and they said the double clicks is probably caused by the switch's tension spring and that they can't do RMA because I'm past the warranty period... I asked them how long is the warranty since there's nothing on their site they said it's only 1 year for US and Canada.

Can't believe I'm looking for yet another mouse after just about a year... sigh

I noticed something today that's...err...strange.

Does anybody elses FK1 get...warm on the bottom?

I came to the mouse today after it had been sat still on the (cloth) mouse pad for quite a while and it had left a strangely warm patch there, sure enough the bottom of the mouse is warm around where the LED is or just above...I can't remember if it was like this before as it's been a week or two since I've used it but previously it was used on USB 2 on an old P55 motherboard and it's now running on a USB 3.0 port on a newer motherboard...which is when i noticed the noticeable warmth...

Yellow FK1 here, room temperature on all sides.
[Though I'm using USB2-Hub, since the mouse didn't work correctly if connected directly to USB3 port of my motherboard (FK1 was randomly stopping working). So FK1->USB2hub->USB3 port.]

I took the mouse apart, it isnt the LED itself, there's 3 chips above it that are causing the heat
