Top mouse, remind me mouse of packard bell system at 2000 where I dominated UT99 worldwide in particle time. But why those round teflon? Are they still on training?

The ZOWIE MiCO has a unique function of its own in form of a very simple DPI-changer. In order to change the DPI, you just hold down mouse1 and mouse2 simultaneously while scrolling the wheel. This allows you to change the DPI rather quickly and best of all; there’s no excess buttons on the mouse.

Availability and MSRP
The ZOWIE MiCO will be available to end-users on the 1st of June 2011.
MSRP:
DKK 299
EUR 34.90
USD 34.90

Features:
Ambidextrous competitive gaming mouse, usable with both hands
Perfect for claw-grip and gamers with small hands
ZOWIE custom lens; 2mm lift-off distance - works on all surfaces
Co-developed with professional StarCraft & StarCraft 2 players from Korea
Lightweight, fast and accurate optical gaming mouse
No drivers or software! Just plug and play
Adjustable DPI: 400/800/1600
Operating System:
Win2000/XP/VISTA/7
Mac OS X v10.2 after

Specifications:
Dots Per Inch: 400/800/1600
Max. Acceleration: up to 30G
Max. Speed: up to 50 inches/second
USB report rate: 500Hz
Length of cable: 1.8m / 5.8 ft
Weight: 68g (ex. cable)
Connector: USB
Buttons: 3
The way to change DPI seems very strange and pretty uncomforable for me.
the overall design is OK, pretty small and NO glossy sides.
optical sensor? maybe Avago ADNS-S3088? 3080? 3060? - all of these [must be one of these] comes with build-in above-average prediction/mouse-correction/angle snapping/drift control - hope for recode by Zowie..
Also, the custom lens is great plus.

It's none of those. I'm not familiar with any 50 IPS 30G sensor made by Avago and even by the slim chance that it is, it wouldn't be able to perform anywhere close to the 3060, 3080, and 3090 which are rated for gaming. Of course that's if it was made by Avago.

Anyway, from the looks of it it was designed for RTS gaming anyway.

I see "competitive gaming". Hey it's 6:23 am for me frown.gif

I kinda meant that as don't expect it to perform as good as any other gaming mouse at that price point unless Zowie scored a deal with some decent sensor manufacturer like Pixart.

You know why call that mouse for rts, I yet to see the art of fps design...

And I dunno about Abyssus, it is too big for quick lifting.

If the sensor is free of angle snapping it would almost be the perfect mouse for me...except for the lack of side buttons.

Still, definitely has promise.
