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.The Avago 3310 optical sensor has already been on the market for some time and many ZOWIE GEAR supporters suggested that this sensor should be used in the next ZOWIE mouse. Developing a new mouse with this sensor was not difficult. The difficult part was to make a new mouse that upholds ZOWIE standards for competitive gaming gear while maintaining the advantages of the sensor. 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.

So, before I finally made the decision to buy this mouse, I poured through a large amount of reviews, YouTube videos, and size measurements of mice to find a mouse that would be comfortable for me. Just for reference, I have average sized hands and exclusively use a fingertip grip on my mice. Before I bought this, I was using a Steel Series Rival 300 which was far too big for my hands and grip style. After finally narrowing my options, I decided to take the plunge and order this mouse, and I'm glad that I did.
-This is a small mouse, for sure. It's not very long, nor does it have a huge bump in the middle like some other mice geared towards users with larger hands and using a palm grip. Because of this, the FK2 is ideal for a fingertip grip, in my opinion. You could probably comfortably use a claw grip as well, if you wanted to. You *might* could do a palm grip but frankly, I don't find it very comfortable with this mouse (although that would probably also depend on your hand size).
-No annoying third-party software needed to change the DPI settings. There's a switch on the bottom of the mouse that changes between a few different DPI presets. Once you press the switch, it will change the color of the lighting on the bottom, which indicates a different DPI setting. I forget the actual values, but they're easy enough to find.
-It has a very attractive and minimalist design. There's no RGB lighting flashing in your eyes or some ugly gamer-oriented design, it's just a sleek looking black mouse with a small red Zowie logo, and that's it. In fact, just looking at it, you probably wouldn't even know that it was a "gaming" mouse.
-The back and forward buttons are extremely nice for web browsing. You can also program them in most games to get added functionality out of them, if you wish. I personally use them as utility hot keys in some games (flashlights, med kits, etc).
-No braided cable. I would've preferred to have a braided cable in a mouse of this price, but it's not a deal breaker. I've personally had no issues with it.
-Price. This definitely is not a cheap mouse, but then again, most gaming mice aren't.
All in all, this is a solid choice if you have hands on the smaller side and you're looking for a nice mouse to use with a fingertip grip. I can't recommend the FK2 enough, and hope to use it for many years to come.
It has also survived a couple of drops around the PC when I was cleaning and or installing other things around and I tugged
on the cable.
The one thing I kind of dislike on it is that the paint after probably about a year or 2 is starting to "chip" in certain places.
I'm not sure if maybe when I was cleaning something with rubbing alcohol some got on it or it was my nail scratching into it or what. and it isn't super noticeable but still.
as you can see in the image (or not) it's not very noticeable nor do I really feel it that often when I'm using the mouse or playing a game. AND to be fair I've used this mouse at least 3-4 hours a day for almost 2 years since 2015. so over all that's the only thing I could complain about on the mouse, never had any undue stuttering, felt smooth and right size and style for me.
This problem isn't limited to Zowie (BenQ), I had the same issue with my previous Logitech mouse. The difference is that Logitech replaced mine under warranty twice, no questions asked (before I decided to switch away to a different brand, thinking it was a design flaw).
BenQ declined to replace my mouse, since they only warranty it for a year. I personally think a $60 mouse should last longer than a year. I have a feeling that the switch they use for the middle mouse click is a lower quality switch than what is used for the left and right buttons, which would explain why it failed.
I guess I'll continue my search for another brand that will stand behind their product (either by offering a longer warranty, or being willing to replace out of warranty products in good faith). Maybe I'm expecting too much here, but I paid $60 for a mouse because I wanted quality, not an internal switch that's going to die after a year.
Awesome for its price, and though the side buttons are not mappable, the mouse makes up for it by making the process of dragging your mouse around to click things you'd normally map extremely easy with its high accuracy.
My point to this review is for those worried about hand size, It fits my Large glove sized hand well in palm, claw, and hybrid.. I suppose you can consider fingertip although i dont play full fingertip. The tracking is great, I have a QCK heavy pad and on 400 dpi 2.2 sens i have noticed my aim in CS-GO has gotten better and my pathing is a lot smoother. As it can be used for most games other then FPS, I still have a DA for other games, considering that the DPI ranges for this are pre fixed.. I like to have one laying around that i can adjust that arent in those ranges
