So, my first post here biggrin.gif
I bought the FK1 by benq yesterday from a local store and was surprised that I can actually palm it after using EC1. There is a problem that other people seem to have. Scrollwheel rattles very much. If I flick with the mouse its like a weight that goes from side to side. I like the shape, maybe wanna try Za11 because it would maybe be even better for palming. Now the thing is that if I go back to my local store and change this to a new FK there is still possibility that it too have mwheel rattle... Maybe I just go with the ZA11.

I suggest that everyone who have a rattling wheel request RMA.
Just so Zowie see the sheer amount of people who has it.
post #2095 of 2101
If I purchased the mouse from Amazon, should I still use the Zowie website's RMA form?
post #2096 of 2101
If you got it from Amazon I would try there first as it's easier to get a replacement from them.


Just got a FK1 and my scroll wheel feels weird.

Have several computers on 24/7 around the clock and there has never been any mouse from any manufacturer that heats up.

If it happens, then check the USB port of your machine to see what's happening. If it's the PS/2 port then your in trouble.

Dear fellow Overclockers

I didn't want to open a new thread for this, so I just posted it here.
I recently ordered myself a Zowie FK1 from Amazon and instead of the new Benq version, they sent me the old one with the white logo.
Now I am wondering, if I should keep the old one or just go for the Benq version.
A lot of people are complaining about the scroll wheel and overall build quality of the Benq version.
What's your opinion on this? Would you get a the new one or just keep the old?

Thank you in advance and kindest regards!

If yours doesn't have any defects just keep it, they are almost identical anyway. Only real difference left is the mouse wheel which is 24steps on yours and 16 again on BenQ versions.
