Zowie releases EC1-A and EC2-A - Page 91

post #901 of 2550
Been using my EC1-A for a week now and I love it....BUT sometimes the mouse likes to spaz out and flicks to the floor (400dpi), it rarely happens but I didn't have this problem with my FK1...same sensor. Anyone else had this problem?

Are you using a black mousepad?
Coz i think the ec*-a has problems with colored mousepads. For example mine reach malfunction speed on the talent. Even neo (using an ec2-a atm) switched to a completely black mousepad.

JFYK, my FK1 didnt have any of this problems.

Yep, QCK+ same mousepad I used with my FK1 and they have the same sensor....Im not sure what to do because its not easy to replicate the problem....I can play for like hours and it doesn't happen....and then bam in a clutch moment I go to flick and mouse spaz out and flicks to the floor frown.gif

REVIEW OF ZOWIE FK1



There are methods to adjust LOD on the FK1 similar to how you change the polling rate on it.

The standard LOD out of the box is adjusted for cloth pads to be around 1.5 - 1.8 mm. However this would mean a higher LOD on a plastic pad (2.2 - 2.4 mm). To enable “plastic mouse pad mode” you have to hold Button 4 and Button 2 (back button on the side and right mouse button) while plugging the FK1 in. This causes the LOD to be around 1.5 - 1.8 mm on a plastic mouse pad (and around 1 mm on a cloth mouse pad)

To switch back to “cloth mouse pad mode” you have to plug it in while holding Button 4 and Button 1 (back button on the side and left mouse button).

Now there is also the so called “original mode”. This sets the LOD to be on a standard level and therefore should optimize the mouse compatibility for players with special material mousepads. It will have higher LOD than all other settings. So this is useful for those players who prefer a higher LOD (looking at you Dontspamme). You get the “original mode” by holding Button 4, 1 and 2 at the same time while plugging the FK1 in.

After setting the LOD once you don’t have to set it again every time you plug in the mouse, similar to the polling rate. I think it’s very nice that Zowie implemented a way to adjust LOD with the FK1 without software. You might not be able to finetune, but I think “low” and “high” LOD should be fine for most players anyway.

My experience with the modes:

Cloth mode on Qck+: 1 CD
Plastic mode on Qck+: did not track at 1 CD hight
Original mode: 2 CD

Only with original mode would the FK track on white paper.

Ordered both an EC1-A and EC2-A

Wanted to ask people here if they had similar situations/problems:

1. I had the first gen EC2 and I noticed that both my old EC2 and EC2-A would creek at the top right corner, like a 'dent outwards' and every time i gripped the mouse, the dent would push in and make a sound.

2. I noticed also that the EC2-A buttons feel stiffer than the EC1-A maybe because of the location of the switches relative to finger on mouse

3. Also i had a question about the input lag. I know its fixed but has anyone tested the EC1-A vs EC2-A to see which one has a lower inputlag or would they both be the same?

Thanks

My EC1 eVo CL have lil easier clicks then my EC2-A. Its more clicky.

I dont think Zowie has dont any effort to the click latency. Althought it might have improved togheter with the new sensor .
Its just that Zowie FK1 and FK2 are stiffer to click then the EC seriers.
FK1 being the stiffest.

Shell design and size. Finger placement will change the force needed. Generally, smaller mice allow you to click further forward, making it much easier.

By original lod setting do you mean the default? If so that's what I'm using frown.gif

I'm currently getting this this same problem, when I grip the mouse, it will dent and click inwards every single time and not just the top right corner, it's like the whole of the top right to the middle of the mouse.
