Zowie releases EC1-A and EC2-A - Page 232

post #2311 of 2813
I don't know what it is, maybe I just had a batch of really bad EC2-As, but when I finally settled in with the EC1-A, I personally noticed that this had the 'lightest' clicks of all the Zowie mice I've owned. I have medium/small hands and the EC1-A fit my hand just fine and it was actually very comfortable. Maybe it's because I've been gaming on a DeathAdder for so many years that I had an immediate liking to the EC1-A, but every EC2-A I've owned had some weird stiff right click or all of a sudden, both M1 and M2 buttons got mushy. The only drawback of the EC series in my experience are the cheap mushy about to break side buttons and sometimes you either need to get your fingers moist or have enough perspiration in your hands to get a good grip on these things. If you have the type of hand that NEVER gets sweaty, this is probably going to be the most slippery mouse you'll ever have.

As for BenQ, I got an MBA and I know this from my old grad school days - in operations management there are 2 things that are a financial no no: 1) Over-supply 2) Shortage (or lack of supply to meet the demand). Either BenQ is financially in the hole to keep the manufacturing costs going to meet the demand or their CEO is an idiot thumb.gif

You are not the only one who had that issue, I played a hefty amound with my 2-a & the bottom left of my hand where the padding is between my thumb and index felt not cramped, but more fatigued. Seemed to be from the bottom left corner of the mouse that snugs your palm when holding.

Case in point they dropped a tweaked FK and I'm pretty sure they're going to limit that as well despite the obviousness in not doing so for a new product.

Weirdos

So you went to the Ec1-a now huh.

Never wanna say someone is an idiot but what else do we have for an answer? lol These short batches are a bit ridiculous now.

@PhiZaRoaH - Ha ha. Yeah, I went with the EC1-A. I keep trying out all these new mice and they're all generally good (I wish the G303 didn't have such an issue with its sensor rattle) but the size and shape of the EC1-A is the sweet spot for me, comfy, precise, and I seem to play well with it. It certainly has put my Castor, DA:Chroma and EC2-A on the potential eBay auction block, that's for sure thumb.gif

I've had two different g303, neither of them has any rattle issue, how common is this?

I finally got my EC2-A and I love it aside from the terrible side buttons and it seems to wake my computer from sleep with movement? With my old G400 I had to click a button to wake the computer. Is there a way to turn this off? Any little bump wakes it up now:rolleyes:

WELL ARE YOU HAPPY NOW? I'm performing well with it like before and no wrist pain yet with a day of playing but my fingers are already starting to cramp up. It's just that damn width and right side of the mouse. It needs like a couple mm in width more and straight left side and maybe less sloped downwards on the clicks and i would be happy.

Unfortunately, with this latest batch regarding the EC series (gosh, I wish the scroll wheel was solid black like the FK and ZA series and the DPI LED notification was at the bottom) - the only way to actually make the mouse 'sleep' is to unplug it. The LED scroll wheel and mushy side buttons are my only gripe with the EC series. Took me a while to get use to the clicks (dare I say "learning curve" for my finger muscles - ha ha)

I like the clicks of the EC series but not the shape and the DPI LED on the wheel. So far my FK1 is much better but the width is a little to small, waiting on the FK1+.

Can i cut away the LED inside my mouse? I dont like that light.
