Should I wait for an EC-1 update with the potential new 3360 sensor?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I currently use the G400 which imo has awful shape, a rightmouse button that clicks way too easily and an ugly glossy shell. Since the cable is finally giving out after 4 years it's time for a replacement.

The replacement should defenitely better suit my big hands and my palm grip style.


I've looked at the DA chroma and found the shape very good with good quality buttons but the driver aspect puts me off.

So the Zowie EC-1A seems like the ideal choice for me, no nonsene minimal mouse except for the ugly scrollwheel and the almost outdated sensor, mushy side buttons and the shell showing off finger prints easily.


Will Zowie soon release a new EC-1A or will it take them till 2017? Or should I just look somewhere else altogether?

I'm gonna guess that Zowie will take until 2017 to implement the 3360 I could be wrong though. If you're only looking for big mice the Scream One might be worth waiting for. And if you're willing to spend a lot I hear AMAZING things about the G900. I love my DeathAdder though and I would recommend it as well if you end up immediately getting a 3310 mouse that isn't the EC1-A. I can't wait to get my hands on a Nixeus Revel or DM1 Pro S though.

I don't see zowie making another product worth buying until mid 2018. I would love to be wrong but it just seems like zowie have no interest in the mouse market other than their current offerings.

i wouldn't wait. zowie will either skip the 3360, or be the last company to start using it.
you might as well get the DA Chroma. install synapse, set your preferences and then just uninstall synapse again. from what i've read, the mouse remembers cpi, polling rate and LED states. (just don't touch the profile button, it will load default settings.)

If possible wait a couple of weeks till it gets more clear if Razer launches a new DA version. Even if they would mess the successor up in some way you would probably get the Chroma version a bit cheaper and there is a slight chance that Zowie might annouce something till then.

However I would also not wonder if they don't update their 3310 line anytime soon.

Yea Zowie seem to be too passive about it and I also think they won't be releasing any mice with 3360 anytime soon. Damn, I still wonder what have been the benefits of benQ acquiring Zowie.

As for the DA, the way I see it is Razer forcing their customers to install that intrusive bloatware called synapse just to change DPI's instead of having a button to do that. There are many people playing with 400 dpis for csgo for example and need twice or more dpis for dota and other games, bad move Razer.

I guess I'll wait a couple weeks for the new DA, my G400 is not completely broken yet.

Wouldn't using the PMW3360 require a shell/PCB redesign? I expect they will update to 3360 because people will rebuy their mice but I wouldn't expect it to be anytime soon.

From what I've read they want to redesign the PCB on the EC series anyway to be able to put the DPI led indicator on the bottom.

They will put a 3360 in their mice, how long however I don't know - but they will do it that I do know
