Alcor for example.

Yea I'd recommend that one too, but I can't find a mouse with that shape and a more modern sensor.

Is it more similar to the IME 3.0 than ec1-a? From review videos i saw alcor seems smaller than both ec1-a and ime 3.0 so it may be too small for me.

You'd think it would be but, it's really not, I would say if the ime 3.0 feels too small for you, then yea, it definitely is. But I held it just fine, and my hands are 18.5 cm long from finger to edge of my palm.

They are not bad at all. Very good mice. The QC issues some have had are not speaking for everyone. The EC series is a great seller.

True, problem is a bad experience with a company spreads faster than good ones.

damn straight, too.
if you pay such a price for a mouse, it's totally fair to expect a top quality product.

people get mad and will complain if you don't deliver a product that reflects its price.
at least in some industries it's generally accepted and taken seriously if you complain about the quality, but peripheral companies seem to get away with it a lot easier.
things like hype and ignorance are helping out these companies, and they're enemies to anyone who really cares about that stuff.

hail logitech?

Oh no it's not even just that, just look at what you get for 60 bucks, a very basic mouse with a great shape and cable sure, but no rgb lighting or a way to turn it off if you like that more, no way to change the LOD or Polling Rate without having to take out the mouse and plug it in, and still no 3360 version yet.

I feel like if they were cheaper, it'd be easier to buy them and feel ok with what you get.

In the meantime, I'll be getting a Nixeus Revel

You're most likely paying for the cost of having different sizes available. The process of producing the molds isn't cheap.

It sure isn't, and it's still surprising to me that other mouse manufacturers don't do the same thing of offering multiple sizes.

Like many of you, I've tried MANY mice, but I keep coming back to my Zowies. I know it's subjective, but they are easily worth $60.00 to me.
