MAX, why is the 21-step scroll wheel so important to you?

Honestly, I didn't get any problems with mines from amazon, have it for a week no problems, however I don't see the hype on this mouse, would much rather recommend a G303 specially if they fix the sensor rattle

Got today my Zowie BenQ FK1... and it has a loose scroll wheel. The moment I move my mouse I hear rattling. The rattling is worse than on Gigabyte XM300. Well the scroll wheel isn't the biggest issue here. The DPI on this one seems weird. I ran couple DPI tests and it claims that 400 DPI is actually 600 DPI and 800 DPI is actually 1000 DPI ? You can also clearly feel that those DPI steps are way faster than what they're supposed to.

Anyone else experienced this or did I just happen to hit a jackpot and get defective? T_T

Unfortunately, I have to question Zowie (the BenQ era) and their quality control issues. You would think that Razer would have the crown of RMAs and defective mice reports, but actually, they don't. Of all the mice I've owned (from Perixx, to Anker, to Logitech, to Razer, to Mionix, to Zowie), Zowie mice have given me the most headaches. Again, this is subjective. I'm sure the customers who have owned the perfect and flawless Zowie mice of their choice outnumber the ones who have a lemon, but after so many RMAs and chances of giving Zowie the benefit of the doubt, I pretty much gave up on the company (and it's not because of how stiff the buttons are).

Well i have 2 Zowies, both no problems. I had 6 Deathadder 2013, all killed between 1 week and 3 month. (All the time doubleclick bug right mousebutton, Moba player xD)

I have 2 Death Adder 1800dpi version, still working flawless after years of use.

Well they said they'll be sending me a free replacement.. will see how that goes. If that one's defective as well.. then I'll give up and get KPM (although I don't like KPM's coating cause its really slippery)

What are these 'new huanos' benq are talking about.. surely they're just the same blue huanos? Any button spamming data after they switched them back?

I haven't tried spamming them but the newest benQ zowie.. (the last one I had was the FK1 with large delay) they 100% fixed click latency delay, tried out a ZA12 and had no issues with 'click to on-screen action' so I'm happy about that

So are we talking 8ms as with non-BenQ ec1-a/za-X, or less now?
