Product information: FK1 High Performance Gaming Mouse

In the highly competitive world of eSports, we are fortunate to see more and more exciting games. The outcome of a duel between the top players is often determined by a second - a second containing a player's enthusiasm, persistence and dreams. They must play for victory while avoiding the slightest mishap.

ZOWIE GEAR upholds the spirit of endless pursuit of product quality and continuous understanding of a player's needs. Developing a stable product improves the performance of competitive players, fulfilling ZOWIE's commitment to eSports and players. Under this philosophy players are able to choose different mouse shapes, sizes and surface coating with the same performance.

ZOWIE FK1 comes as an answer to the many gamers that showed ZOWIE that the FK shape was something they were interested in but was too small for their hands. It will also satisfy the gamers who wish to use a mouse with Avago 3310.

One key feature for ZOWIE is the low lift-off distance which is important for any serious gamers. After lots of repeated testing, the research and development team was successful, achieving the low lift-off distance for the new model (1.5~1.8mm). All gamers that are interested in this signature feature from ZOWIE will be able to enjoy it in the new ZOWIE FK1.


Features:
• Ambidextrous mouse developed for claw grip usage
• Two thumb buttons on both sides to comfortably serve left- and right-handed users
• Plug and Play (no drivers needed)
• Easy to switch between left- and right-hand functionality
• 400 / 800 / 1600 / 3200 DPI adjustment
• Adjustable USB report rate 125 / 500 / 1000 Hz
• Perfect lift-off distance = 1.5 ~ 1.8mm

Problems with jittering on hard mouse mat

Using this mouse on a Corsair Gaming MM600 sometimes jitters for a few pixels making it impractical use disappointed over all.

Excellent mouse for non-gamers too!

I'm not a game player but wanted an accurate, smooth rodent. My Razer Pro v1.6 (bought from Overclockers in 2006!) recently died - £3 per year, excellent value! Faced a replacement with trepidation. Sales & reviews @ Overclockers recommended this one. They were right! Breeze to set up - plug in, no drivers. Buttons to be pressed for sensitivity & USB report rate - keep the box as instructions printed on it. Feels solid, great size for my largish, arthritic hand. Buttons hard to press accidently. So precise set to 3200dpi & smooth on my Razer Pro mouse plate. A change with no trauma, time will tell if it lasts another 10 years (or me for that matter!), excellent so far. Highly recommended. Top service from Overclockers of course.

brilliant

The shape.. the feel.. the accuracy....all things that are SPOT ON with this mouse... i got this mouse just for cs:go... micro corrections are easier... and i like the fact the DPI change button is on the underside(save you accidently putting you dpi up in those clutch situations) all in all very happy.. this mouse helped me to supreme

A great mouse, but strangely 'slippery'

I used the Zowie EC1 before buying this. It was a great mouse and I only replaced it because the left mouse button broke (after only 8 months, which was annoying). I replaced it with the FK1 and knew what to expect based on prior experience. It's comfortable, well made, the scroll wheel is perfect, driverless and easy to configure.

My only gripe is that for some reason this version of the Zowie feels more 'slippery' than before. I don't mean in the way it tracks, that is perfect, but in the coating applied to the mouse body. Very often I struggle to obtain a solid grip on the mouse, my hand slipping to either side. Before you wonder - no my palms aren't sweaty! In fact if anything I find that helped matters as it gave my hand more traction. Once I've got a grip it's fine, but that initial "mounting" of the mouse is more slippery than it ought to be. I use mine for development work more than gaming, so I'm often reaching for and leaving the mouse again to return my hand to the keyboard, where-as when I play a game I hold it for longer periods of time and then it's less of an issue. Anyway just a heads-up for an otherwise great mouse.

Like the FK, with improvements

A nice update of the FK (I have the 2013), which is already a great mouse. Typical Zowie, minimalistic, sturdy feel, nice positive buttons, good grip, rubberised texture. Scrollwheel is improved (smoother), it does fit a little bit bigger than the FK, and a little heavier. 4 DPI settings, and no complains.

If the shape turns you off, I'd wait for the EC2 Evo update (fingers crossed).

If you are looking for a FK clone, get the FK2 (slightly smaller than FK1).

Camade is a nice addition too. Does the job of keeping the cable out of the way.

Amazing mouse

i bought this mouse after hearing alot of good reviews on it and i can easily understand why. The mouse is very ergonomic although i feel it fits better for with people with slightly bigger hands. The sensor is unrivaled. i got no mouse accel or anything else like that. the mouse is also very light and the dpi is very easy to switch. Another thing i like is that it is literally plug and play. My only dislike of the mouse is that i feel the mouse wheel is abit to light and i find that it gets stuck in between clicks compared to the fantastic mouse wheel of the Zowie AM. Otherwise and a fantastic mouse and would recommend

Top of the range

The sensor in this is pretty much flawless, no drivers needed but still has all the options you need without the bells and whistles

I've used Razer's DeathAdders for 4 years and this thing just blows them away. It's perfect for average/small hands, if you have large hands I'd recommend the SteelSeries Rival, which also uses the 3310 sensor from Avago/PixArt.

This gaming mouse is genuinely designed for precision through and through, and has the best implementation of the 3310 sensor in my opinion. The free cable management stand is a nice deal breaker too!

Best mouse I've tried yet

My g400: Too glidey.
My Deathadder: I can't make small adjustments well.
My Rival: The shape doesn't suit me at all.
My intellimouse 3.0 : Left click is dodgy, scroll wheel bug, and worn feet.
My Sensei: Bad tracking, strange shape

My new Zowie FK: Perfect. The way it is shaped, your hand naturally forms a comfortable claw grip. It is incredibly easy to lift up and has a really low LOD. Flawless sensor. No silly drivers or software. I really love this mouse, it's really solid build and I totally forget I'm using a mouse after a while, it feels like an extention of my arm.

Add that with fast delivery, and a free mousepad thats about 2 1/2 feet long, and yummy haribo of course.... a very happy customer.

Zowie FK1 Review

Zowie = best company for keyboards and mice. Mouse is 10/10, would buy again.

A refresh of 2013

Fk1 for me is a refresh of things of Fk'13, which i didn't notice or complain much about back in 2013 july release time, wheel is better, very happy with it, coating stays dry after hand oil, not like in fk'13, m1&m2 switches are huano, max speed of new sensor 5m/s, i don't even break a sweat in fps games with this max control, fk'13 never failed with ~3m/s for me either, sensor A3310 is supposed to be better than previous A3090, no issues with optics at all, and now you can change lift off distance (1mm, 1.5-1.8mm, 2.4mm (2 CDs)), driverless politics is just great with ZOWIE!, mouse is 2-3mm bigger in dimensions, which doesn't bother me at all, got medium sized hands, is fine, great product for those who have money and want a mouse that gamers need

  • pcGameware - Bronze

    "On the performance side, I honestly couldn’t fault the Zowie FK1. The Avago 3310 optical sensor worked very well at all of the DPI presets (400, 800, 1600 or 3200), without even the slightest jitter normally associated with tracking issues, which made for an incredibly fluid and precise Gaming experience. Any FPS and fan of fast moving twitch shooters will love the FK1."

    Award
