Why is it only Zowie that gives extra pairs of mousefeet? - Page 2

post #11 of 55
No RGB LEDs, no rubber grips, no firmware updates, only 5 DPI levels and their mice is always $60-$65 as opposed to a Rival or a Deathadder which offer everything and still go on sale for $40-$45 sometimes.....yeah, they should give extra mouse feet.

Hurr-durr RGB LEDs, they give me 13.37% more HS percent hurrdurr.
Who the hell cares about bloody lightning?
Also, rubber grips? Why? To wear down after 6 months like it's the Rival's grips? The coating is pretty much perfect, it's not slippery at all and my hands tend to sweat.
Zowie is made for 100% performance (even tho they fail with the switches), and not stupid low-end user standards.

Couldn't hurt to add some RGB, I mean if Ducky can do it, so can Zowie.

And I'm not asking for crazy stuff either, just add the ability to change the color of the light for the logo and mousewheel, bam, done.

I bought a non-refreshed (15ms+ button latency) FK for $20 for no reason but to see how the sensor feels and compare it against my Hori Edge and then never use it again, I'm surprised how Zowie is renowned so well when I really haven't enjoyed their mice, I owned two products from them (haven't gotten the FK yet), an EC1-A and a P-TF Speed, I was so disappointed by both of them that I will never buy another Zowie product after this FK, and the only reason I bought the FK was to see just how noticeable the click latency is and give the A3090 a shot.

I guess most companies dont do this because before the feet are used up other issues will occur (double cliks, encoder fails cord fails etc). Only certain hard pads are aggresive towards the feet and its a small percentage of users using them. Not worth it.

And I'd get non wobbling buttons and a better scroll wheel over extra feet anyday

because Zowie's mousefeet are only half of the thickness of proper ones. rolleyes.gif

Firstly,
to YOU RGB lighting doesn't matter. But the vast majority of people (outside of this forum) do, including myself. Also, nobody expects RGB to increase your headshot percentage, as nobody expects a pair of mouse feet to do accomplish that either.

Secondly,
I've had my razer deathadder 2013 for 2 years now and the side grips are as good as new. Steelseries isn't the best when it comes to quality but neither is zowie (scroll wheel issues, coating fall apart, thin mouse feet).

Thirdly,
A lot of people avoided zowie mice because it wasn't friendly for dry hands (we prefer glossy mice, which is why the Rival white exists).

Fourthly,
Zowie's "performance" is overrated, they're using the same sensor as everyone else and the mice perform the same as a DA2013/Chroma/Rival.

Actuaaaaly, I think my EC1 A is leaps and bounds over the Deathadder, the sensor feels snappier and more responsive, and the shape doesn't feel as fat in my hands as the Deathadder does. Plus no software that I only use for 3 things anyhow, changing color, dpi, and polling rate. Plus, my Deathadder 3.5 G had this weird issue where it would not default to 400 dpi, I had to have Synapse running. The memory that stores my settings either died or they just blatantly removed that feature.

So, yea, I definitely think Zowie deserves the praise they get. If they allowed the LOD, Polling Rate, and RGB lighting to be changed it'd be the perfect mouse imo.

Shape is pure preference. You could try a DA Chroma or 2013, I install the drivers, save my settings and remove synapse. I do the same for my Rival 100. Drivers aren't an issue since most modern mice have onboard memory. Also, what happens if a zowie mouse's button latency or any other issue is firmware related?

I personally don't like zowie's shapes, the sensor isn't any different from others, they also re-launch the same mice every 4-6 months with fixes they should done in the first place (started with coating, then updated zowie 2014 to fk2 (they should've launched the FK2 with the FK1...), then the button latency fix on the FK mice, and now mousewheel + omron switches). I'm afraid to spend $60 on a zowie mouse now just to find out they come out with a 3360 and softer clicks refresh 4 later...

Actually you can change the polling rate and lod on zowie mice. Unfortunately you need the manual for the mouse button combo. On the other hand you could have software where that would be easy and all the settings would be stored on the mouse, like Logitech, SS does it.
