The Zowie FK1 gaming mouse uses an Avago 3310 optical sensor which is regarded as one of the best in the world. It has no built-in acceleration and no angle snapping. It’s practically jitter-less when set at 125 and 500Hz polling rate, and has barely noticeable jitter at 1000Hz. The Avago 3310 has no native CPI, it is made to have each step of 50 CPI work as well as the previous one. With CPI steps of 400/800/1600/3200 for the FK1, all CPI choices should work equally well.

Zowie has kept the mouse remarkably simple. There's no RGB lighting, adjustable weights, or superfluous buttons that end up only getting in the way. It's plug-and-play and requires no additional software. You can customize only the essential settings such as lift off distance, polling rate, or switch between left or right-handed modes with just a combination of specific button presses. See More
Due to its thoroughly ambidextrous design, sometimes the ring and pinky fingers can touch the side buttons. Even though they are deactivated and won’t cause mispresses, they are still not as comfortable as non-ambidextrous designs. See More
The standard lift off distance on a cloth mouse pad is 1.5-1.8mm though it will be a bit higher when using a plastic pad being 2.2 - 2.4mm. To enable the plastic pad setting a certain button combination has to be pressed on the gaming mouse itself. See More
The G900’s transmitter performs well enough that it’s almost indistinguishable from other wired mice, in some cases even surpassing them in click latency tests. This, combined with its high quality sensor, makes it a great wireless option for a gaming mouse. See More
Those switching from the G700 will find that they are going from 4 thumb buttons to two. Yes, the G900 allows for customizable side buttons of up to 2 on each side, but those who like to have more than 2 thumb buttons for gaming (especially MMOs) may find this hard to adapt to. See More
Logitech mice typically have above average build quality and the G900 is no exception. The body is made with a rubberized coating that doesn’t scratch easily and is pleasant to hold. The main buttons have a mechanical pivot design that contributes to its precise and tactile button clicks. The cable is braided, which prevents it from twisting and damaging the wires. See More
The main left and right buttons are built in an uncommon way, mainly to provide a more satisfying feel when they are clicked. Each uses a pivot bar to provide consistent clicking, regardless of where you press the button. In addition, there are metal springs under the main buttons for faster recovery after clicks. See More
Aside from sensor and DPI adjustments, the G900 features extensive customization options. It has plenty of extra buttons that you can rebind with commands or macros. The scroll wheel can be changed to either free-rolling or notched scrolling. You can also choose to use it as a wired mouse, if you prefer. Full RGB lighting support lets you customize its look to suit your gaming rig. See More
Option tweaking is done via the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). This includes sensor related options, the choice of side buttons, button remapping, macro creation and thorough lighting control. All of this is connected to the five available profiles. The LGS is available on Windows and Mac systems. See More
Unless you have small hands, this is a mouse that is meant for people who use either the claw or fingertip grip. In addition to being a small mouse and having low height, it's also extremely light, weighing only 68 grams. This makes it easy to control with a fingertip and claw grip as it relies on the mouse being as agile as it can be. See More
The software is very simple and easy to use. It lets you change the DPI steps, double click speed, vertical scroll speed, polling rate, very basic lighting control and the choice of hand-mode. In addition, it has the option to reassign its buttons, but since the Lua has only four buttons it’s practically useless as the main three are almost always invariable. See More
The Avago A3050 optical sensor that the Lua uses has small, unnoticeable prediction and doesn’t carry over perfect tracking at high speeds (depending on the chosen DPI setting, over 60-120 inches per second or 1.5 m/s-3 m/s). But unless you use it at extremely low sensitivity, it shouldn’t be a problem. When reaching such speeds, some negative acceleration may be noticed. See More
The Roccat Lua is a small mouse, measuring only 11.5 cm in length and 3 cm in height. The width is pretty standard with 6.5 cm at the back and narrows down towards the front. The small size might raise some concern about the grip. If it’s your first mouse of this size you might need to adjust your grip to accommodate for the smaller scale of the mouse. Commonly the grips change and include some elements of a fingertip grip. See More
Even though it’s a budget mouse, it has high quality components to ensure that the mouse can last for years. There are no unnecessary moving parts while button clicks are clear and don’t give out after heavy use. The body of the mouse consists of rubberized coating at the top and textured plastic on the sides which gives it a quality feel. See More
