Well built, well designed

Benjamin B., Newegg
4 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought this mouse under a different brand (but identical mouse) and immediately realized why this mouse is so well reviewed. The mouse has a very precise feel, making it easy to control.
  • Pros: 4th and 5th buttons positioned very well, comfortable feel, very precise mouse, excellent build quality
  • Cons: back of mouse is a little wide

A very good quality built mouse

Kevin Z., Newegg
26 November 2012
  • Summary: 450/1150/2300 dpi? What the hell are they thinking. This is why I took 1 star off. I don't mind if the base dpi is 450, but atleast include one divisible by 400. I mean some of us old school gamer are too stubborn to use anything other than 400dpi. It should be 450/800/2300.
  • Pros: -Feels nice -Very good sensor -Work right out of box -Good Scroll Wheel -No driver require
  • Cons: Nothing wrong with the mouse, the problem is me. Read the "other thoughts" to get what I mean.

Great while it lasts

Robert R., Newegg
9 October 2012
  • Summary: It was nice while it lasted but I think I will look elsewhere for my next mouse. It's not bad for a casual user in my opinion.
  • Pros: The mouse feels great in the hand and the scroll wheel is precise. I was surprised at the quality, with zowie being my first venture to a non-logitech mouse.
  • Cons: Unfortunately this one didn't last as long as I would have liked. The side buttons are slick and somewhat annoying to press. The rubbery coating covering the mouse is wearing away after a year or use, mostly around the left button area. These issues are fairly minor, but after a year of wear the ...

Excellent FPS Mouse

Jacob R., Newegg
4 September 2012
  • Summary: Great FPS mouse for the price. Would recommend highly.
  • Pros: Love the soft touch coating. Excellent tracking. No prediction. Easy switch from my deathadder. No drivers to worry about. Comes with extra mouse feet. Feels very nice in my larger hands.
  • Cons: Middle scroll click could be better. Sticks sometimes. Not a huge fault but minus an egg for sure.

What you need to know...

Rick J., Newegg
2 April 2012
  • Summary: Let me say right here that once you remove the cover (and your warranty) it should take no more that a minute to remove the spring loaded ball from the scroll wheel and cut the tip off the Fwd button actuator.Once this is done you will have the perfect mouse - assuming you have large hands.
  • Pros: I agree with what most people have said about this mouse but please read the rest of my comments - especially if you have larger hands than average.
  • Cons: There are 3 important things to know about the Zowie EC1 that I wish I had known (or I should say "realized") before buying it. (1) It is smaller than the DA and the IME 3.0 - not only that - the fwd/back buttons are farther back. My thumb (3 inches) rests exactly between the two - would have sen...

Love the mouse, too bad it's defective.

Terry S., Newegg
7 February 2011
  • Summary: Let me start by saying that this mouse is a home run! Being marketed as a gaming mouse, the price and quality (with a caveat) is certainly hard to beat. First the compliment, now for the slap to the face: The particular mouse I received is defective.
  • Pros: Great ergonomics Seemingly high quality construction Excellent tracking Great feet Simple Flexible, unobtrusive cord
  • Cons: No option to disable LED Ungainly DPI selector Slightly irritating audible click when scrolling the wheel rapidly
