[Sponsored] Zowie G-SR BenQ Version review - by Ino - Page 3

post #21 of 108
Thread Starter 
Mine uncurled on its own, I didn't put it under books like I used to with my Qcks. I think I rolled it the opposite direction once and that was it.
Fast enough

Is mouse pad more like a blend of cloth and plastic or just cloth? I currently have a plain all black mouse mat with no logo on it and was wondering if a name brand mouse pad really makes a difference. I'm using the Zowie ZA12 with it as well. I like a pad with more control rather than speed.

^^^ This works extremely well, I did this with the Blue G-SR and it flattened out perfectly, and with a QcK Heavy it doesn't work as well (I put a few plastic bags over my QcK Heavy with 3 x 20lb dumbells to flatten it lol).

Rolling it the opposite way kinda ruined my GTF-X so I'd be careful. It has been several weeks since I got it and it's still not straight. I put books on it for a week, got inpatient, rolled it and now it'll never be good frown.gif

When you say roll, do you mean you just bent it the opposite way at one of the ends where it wasn't laying flat?

BTW don't take into account Zowie's mail in rebate if you see them offering it. They haven't even bothered with mine with this pad and hasn't even bothered to return any emails. This compounds their bad customer service I received from trying to RMA my zowie FK mouse.

Get a thick towel, put the mouse pad under the towel and iron if for a few minutes. Don't use the steam button.

Yep, I just curled up the edges. 10cm on either side are useless now. It also has bunch of vertical lines where I curled it making the glide feel different.

I had the same problem with the GTFX. Rolled it opposite way to get it flat: left and right sies are now kinda crippled. I might try to iron them as mentioned before. Still sucks that all Zowie pads I had as of yet have trouble laying flat.

Finally opened the (Black) Zowie G-SR. My Lift off Distance about doubles like it did with the Blue Zowie G-SR. I tried 3 different mice with the QcK Heavy & (Black) Zowie G-SR side by side, and all 3 had much higher Lift off Distance on the Zowie G-SR. kookoo.gifwheee.gif

edit: Pic of DeathAdder Chroma at the highest point it tracks on the (Black) Zowie G-SR (might track at a little higher, but hard to take a clear picture)
