The only thing I don't like about it it's the right lip... And after some years using it, I'm not used to it... But I can use it....
Ahh sorry, I misread. If you have say 15 minutes of spare time, I'd be interested to see some benchmarks in CS:GO with g400 plugged in versus EC1-A plugged in. thumb.gif

I can do that if you have some free time to teach me which applications I should use and how i do that :-) right now I'm at work but soon I get home I can test it for you :-) no problem :-)

I think I'll give Zowie some benefit of the doubt if there is any indication that people are just ending up with some bad units somewhere. I've only really used the FK1 for a short time, but I feel the 3090 did better, maybe with more time I'll change my mind and be more certain about the 3310's, but I think tracking performance may just top some of the better on paper mice. To be more fair, it's doing really well in fast paced games.

I'm also thinking about a 3090 mouse (would be nice if zowie had a new line for these), or a deathadder 2013 if it's bearable without constant software settings changing.

I think the scroll wheel problems people are having is down to the user not understanding the wheel.

Due to the design of the wheel you could unknowingly scroll if you rest your finger on it or you could leave the wheel between notches. That's more the case with the newer wheel.

Logitech has a more distinct notches for their wheel.

Yup, it was the same with the older wheel as well (if not a bit worse). The notches on the zowie wheel (especially the ECx series) have gigantic gaps between them so it's very easy to leave it "half-cocked" and just the slightest nudge from your finger hitting it or resting on it will actuate it.

It's really unfortunate how bad the scroll wheel is on the EC2 because the shape is phenomenal.

So, I guess people are just applying too much pressure? I think I'd be okay provided the wheel moves when I want it to and stays still otherwise, I'm not usually resting my finger there. With the FK1 I'm noticing I can scroll by mistake if using the wheel click button, or accidental scrolling the other way when switching weapons with the scroll wheel.

Doesn't sound as bad as the FK1 wheel for me is, if there's bigger gaps that's gonna leave some room for me to 'not' actuate it as well. Do you have issues with it scrolling the wrong way when it's "half cocked"?

It can, yeah. But it usually just looks like a hiccup, almost like a single scroll click. If you have something bound to scroll up/down it would definitely nudge it.

Well for me scroll wheel isn't much of an issue, since I just use it to scroll between weapons, it's just a matter of time to adapt.. Sure it feels weird compared to another models, or an normal and cheap office mouse, but it's ok..
Meanwhile I sent and email to the shop that sold me the mouse to see if there's some kind of solution for my problem.
I know it's going to be difficult to prove it, but since I'm the only one with this problem, it's not to be easy... If I'm not succeeded, I'll contact zowie to see if there's some possibility to rma (according to zowie site"In the event that warranty repair or replacement is necessary, contact your original place of purchase. If for any reason the original place of purchase is unable to assist, contact ZOWIE GEAR for warranty service.)...Wish me luck :-)
Meanwhile back to g400... This is truly a love/hate I feel with this mouse...
I wouldn't mind if I could have zowie ec1-a she'll with the internals of the g400... That would be a dream come true :-)

Had EC1-Evo glossy finish since 2013. Bought the EC1-A version this week and exchanged half of the shell for better grip. The EC1-A is an even better mouse than the EVO! Best shell ever smile.gif
