I've used the "classic" Logitech mice, Deathadders, Intellimouse, etc. The shape and sensor feel of this mouse is better than anything I've used. It's literally the first shell I've ever held that makes me forget that I'm even holding anything in my hand after a few minutes of gaming. No other shape/shell has done that for me.
I've never bought into Finalmouse's marketing and "custom firmware, flawless sensor" hype. To me, citing that the finalmouse's 3310 firmware is better is like saying even though I have the same exact car as you do, mine is worse because I use Pennzoil oil in it instead of your Castrol oil. I've never used one so I can't say for certain, but I sure as hell know I'm not going to pay the price finalmouse asks for this mouse. It should be no more than $59.99. And to me even that is expensive for the build quality.
I'm going to be purchasing an Omron version of the EC2-A soon enough, and the only other mouse that can get me to switch is a decent shape/light weight mouse from Logitech/Zowie that utilizes a 3366/3360... but who knows when that will be. Apparently Logitech is still refusing to release a G400/G500 shape with their best sensor.
Sorry mate but how can the Zowie 3310 be better than anything else. This claim is slightly misleading. I agree the shape is good but the sensor is mediocre, good at best. It's one of the worst 3310 in terms of cursor behavior and doesn't have that stable polling rate either. I mean yeah it stays at near 1000 but cursor path isn't smooth at all.
I havent tested any FM but there are many sensors that are better than the Zowie ECx-A ones. Don't get me wrong, i like the EC-A release, but I cannot agree with you that the sensor is that good. Because once you try the good ones, you notice it isn't. Heck, even the old 3688 and 3888 feel miles more raw, accurate and responsive.
