Nice, but will the scroll wheel actually work?

Oh hey new logo also

Quote:
Vincent Tang, CEO for ZOWIE GEAR, had the following to say about the release:

"The idea of the EC Series carrying the AVAGO 3310 (EC1-A & EC2-A) was developed and tested in early September, 2014. It was my decision not to launch this new series. We have started to receive many emails from players regarding this product and this made me realize that I had made a huge mistake by ignoring those who were in need of what they loved. I would like to apologize to those people who have supported the EC series. ZOWIE GEAR will continue to offer a variety of products, happy gaming."
Good stuff

I can't wait for another round of
+ Flaking coating
+ Button lag/click delay
+ Skipping Scroll wheel notches
to start 2015 off!

OR are they going to introduce new QC defects?
I can't wait!
Whoo!
Keep up the good work Zowie!

well I am really tempted to pick one up... need to get ahold of my old EC2 eVo and see if I still can get used to the shape.

the scroll wheel looks the same but I thought they fixed it in the EC2 eVo CL, cause I have that mouse and the scroll wheel is perfectly fine. Yes they still use huano switches, its preference.

Huanos are sort of the trademark of Zowie, just like the driverless thing. Apparently (?) the FK2 has lighter huanos than what has been implemented in previous mice (including the FK1). Perhaps these EC-As will use those as well. I don't think they remedy the button lag issue, though.

I currently own an EC1 eVo CL and love the shape but it's a bit too bulky (more cumbersome for micro-adjustments) so I'll probably pick up an EC2-A this time around.

Same here, I bought the same as you plus an all glossy white model way back.

Would like to see Zowie step up here with some decent input devices but so far the basics like a DECENT scroll wheel hasn't been addressed yet. When someone gets the first EC2-A in their hot hands please do a scroller test to see if it has been improved over all the previous releases.

A decent mouse doesn't exist until it is fitted with a REAL kick-arse scroll wheel that never falters under any conditions. Hope they also fix the lagging issues with their current models that everyone here on OCN is complaining about.

Really wish they would address click latency.

EC2 looks nice! Never realized how much lighter it was than the EC1. I used to rock an EC1 back in the day when they first came out. Loved it, hated the eVo coating so I had to jump ship.

If you like the deathadder get the ec1, if you like the deathadder but you have small hands and really like low sensitivity where you pick up your mouse and do fast swipes to turn get the ec2. I am getting the ec2!

Yes I wish so too, regardless I'm getting an ec2 because I love the sensor more than the other 3310 mice, and the shape! one of the most important things is the comfort of the shape!
