I prefer the 3310 over the 3360, especially when I'm using rawinput.

Xizt still uses the Steelseries Ikari, Guardian the Kinzu and a whole lot more use Zowie mice.

Just imagine all of them on 336* sensored mice rolleyes.gifbiggrin.gif

IIRC nooky even played really good in CS:S with Windows acceleration. And we all know how bad that is. And that is a whole lot more of a difference than 336* vs. 3310 wink.gif

How may Zowie mice did you own?
I went trough quite a lot of those and most of them had problems with the wheel (just google "zowie scroll wheel problem", there are tons vids and posts about the issue).
Zowie made it a little bit better by going back to 16 notch-wheel, but the wheel still have skipping issues when you scroll slowly (especially up).

Zowie did make good mice, but they stopped trying somewhere along the way.
Known issues are not being fixed, bad QA (had 3 FK1 that did feel and sound all different), premium price for outdated hardware. I do love the Fk1 shape, cable and feet though. Maybe when they remember to "Strive for Perfection" again, and release a new FK1 with PMW 3366 and fixed mousewheel, i'll consider buying their products again.

Nope, I explained why. That someone got triggered over the word ignorant, so he can go back to his safe space. You can go ahead and join him.

fk2 is really good but the 3310 malfunctions a lot on me when I'm awping.. (I keep putting the mouse down while moving it and that makes it malfunction)

this never happens on the 3366/0 so i would love to have that sensor in the fk2 ..

I have a Zowie FK, but I'm unsure if it's t he 2014 refresh or a 2013 model, I forget when I bought it. I ask because I want to buy the exact same Huano switches in the FK, I replaced them with Omrons and threw out the Huanos, I didn't check it's model number. Thanks.

If the bottom of the FK is yellow then it's the '13 model, if it's not then it's the '14 model.
