Product information: AM GS 2300 DPI Optical Gaming Mouse - Black/Red

The ZOWIE AM is an ambidextrous mouse that is unmatched by other ambidextrous mice in flexibility, stability and performance. It features two buttons on both sides which allows the user to switch between left- and right-handed usage. Only one side may be active at a time, thus eliminating annoying situations where you accidently hit the sidebuttons using the bottom of your palm or your pinkyfinger.

Because shape is one of the most important factors when choosing a competitive gaming mouse, the ZOWIE AM has been built as a versatile mouse, which can be easily adapted to the users’ preference to either left- or right-handed use. In an effort to offer users of ambidextrous mice (left-handed users especially) a higher level of comfort when playing, the ZOWIE AM features two buttons on each side – but only one side can be active at a time, meaning that the users has to define either left- or right-handed usage. Just as with the Hz-changer on the EC-series, there are no drivers or software – the switch is made directly on the mouse, and the mouse will remember the setting.

From the feedback we have received from researching about ambidextrous mice, we can understand that one of the most annoying features is that these mice almost always have functional buttons on both sides, making it easy to accidently hit the wrong button with your palm or pinky finger. Some users don’t see this as a problem, but instead they think it’s annoying that there’s only one button on the side they actually use. This is not suitable for competitive gamers, so it is something we are looking to eliminate. For those of you who prefer functional buttons on both sides – this mouse is not for you.

When it comes to performance, there is no doubt in our mind that optical is still the best choice. Even though it does not offer the same DPI-values as laser, the optical sensor has proven itself worthy of competitive gaming through its everlasting stability and trustworthy functionality.

However, one thing that can split the waters is the question of prediction or no prediction – some like it, some don’t, and SpawN insisted that his mouse should be without it. The ADNS-3090 is the best prediction-free optical sensor available at this time, so we decided to fix the issues it has and use it in the ZOWIE AM.

Unfortunately there are very rarely any easy fixes when it comes to optimizing a product and making it ideal for competitive gaming, so we have gone the hard way to develop a custom lens which would function flawlessly with the ADNS-3090, as we did with the ADNS-3060 in the EC-series. It has taken a lot of time and effort, but we have finally succeeded in creating the exact combination necessary for a low lift-off distance (1,5 mm) while maintaining flawless performance.

The mousewheel in the ZOWIE AM is the same as the one used in the ZOWIE EC-series. Developed using an optical encoder instead of the traditional mechanical system, the mousewheel has proven to be extremely durable. We expect the lifespan of the mousewheel to be more than five years.

No frill's, but amazingly precise

I've been using the Zowie AM GS for over a month now, and i have had a very good experience with it. It's a nice change of pace from using Logitech again. I'd reccomend it, if it's right for you.

-Small in size, so not idealy suited if you have paticularly large hands.
-Very precise sensor, ideal for FPS games where quick, pinpoint accuracy is required.
-Stiffer & louder left & right click buttons. Kinda like a mechanical mouse if you will, i find it aids precision.
-DPI setting is adjustable via a button on the underside of the mouse. Corresponding 3 speed's are denoted by 3 LED colourd lights. Your current setting remains selected even after cold boots.
-Ambidextrous design.
-The scroll wheel isnt the best in the world, but does the job.

Awesome

Not sure why this mouse isn't more popular, maybe because of the DPI race! The shape is familiar and works with both hands! the mouse is very light. The mouse may not have all the lights and the like to show off. Subtlety is the main reason I bought it to go with my discreet Filco Ninja!

Incredible mouse

In a world focussed on hgih DPI and lights, Zowie are doing what competitive gamers want.

Not focussing on high DPI but on a rock solid sensor with a much higher perfect control speed and fidelity. Couple that with a lovely simple 1.1/WMO shape and you got a superb little mouse.

Its such a shame that the average customer demands high DPI. Mice like this are now few and far between.

If you want a rock solid performer with a superb balanced & shape then look no further then the Zowie AM

excellent mouse

lovely mouse... i got the limited edition one, in blue, probably the best gaming mouse on the market, IMO. I've went through about 10 mices, including lasers, and this mouse is just perfect.
