1.1 zowie (help here please!)

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
hello guys.

Ive used 518 for years then i was tired of playing with it because of the weight. I Tried all mice i guess but i didnt like most of them...
I love 1.1zowie blue but when i tweak to 500hz the mouse starts working weird, shaking itself.. when i aim.. or take the mouse from the pad it stars shaking!
And other problem.. when i move to fast it doesnt track! damn.. this is a good mouse.. best shape.

Anyway the list is:

Xai : positive accel
Kinzu : ALOT of accel and hard prediction
Ec2 : very sensitivity sensor and strange weight and shape
DA : fits Ok but i dont like the mouse1 and mouse2. For games it sucks!
3.0 : Too heavy!
Ikari : strange shape and angle snapping/prediction


Can you help me here? What should i do and what pad should i use aswell? thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuu

You should look at this chart: http://www.overclock.net/mice/854100...nce-sheet.html

You think the MX518 is too heavy? It's just 100 grams. I play with the g9 which is 140 grams!

Try getting another Intellimouse Optical 1.1

So it seems you like the palm grib, maybe you should consider mionix naos 3200 as you like the mx 518 sensor too. It has an upgraded version of the same sensor

btw if you have probleems with the weight consider getting a mouse bungee to hold up the cord. It helps alot

Because that sensor is not meant for 500hz

Actually it is, or a wider data path.

I want to say try a different USB port, or its likely the motherboard.

I have been running intellimouse 1.1's for like almost 10 years. I have never had a problem running them at 500hz. I have tried the zowie as well and had no issues. Its sorta a pain to do the first time you reinstall windows, but I have had no problems with XP or 7.

I really think you should reconsider the Zowie EC2. I personally went from a 1.1 to a mx518, 3.0, DA v1, Xai, and now an EC2. In my mind, the EC2 is hands down the best out of the entire group. It was the quickest of the bunch for me to re-adjust to and feels perfect. Its like the perfect mix for me of the 3.0 and the 1.1. I have used it with a QcK+, Zowie G-RF (got for free =D),Zowie G-TF, and a Sphex surface.

Most comfortable for me has been the EC2 and the G-RF so far. Followed closely behind by the Intelli 1.1 (@500hz) on either a supermat or a QcK+. (i use an ec2 at home and a 1.1 at work and have no issues between switching between the two mice, i easily put 4+ hours on each per day and I don't feel like im using anything different)

The xai had issues with the cloth pads (im a firm believer in optical) and the DA feels so clumsy to me as its clearly meant for a palm style grip.
