This product is an answer to every gamer that was looking for the performance of the Avago 3310 sensor in an ergonomic mouse. The new EC1-A and EC2-A series keeps the same shape and size from the original EC series and introduces the Avago 3310 sensor just like the FK series. After releasing mice with different surfaces, ZOWIE GEAR understood that most people prefer the coating used in the FK and EC eVo CL lines and as such the new EC line will also use this coating. The mouse is plug and play (no drivers needed) and has a low-lift off distance, signature features of all ZOWIE mice.

The Zowie EC1-A is uncannily similar to the legendary Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 in shape and dimensions (this is clearly intentional) - if you know the IME3 suited you best, then this is definitely the one to go for; in that case, don't even bother thinking about the EC2-A unless you have small hands and found the IME3 too bulky. The EC1-A is a touch shorter in length if you compare it to the IME3, but I think that suits a relaxed claw grip* more than the IME3 (light palm touch, curved piano fingers - like having your hands by your side). Weight also feels slightly lighter and more balanced, offering an immediately improved control as soon as it's plugged in for the first time. And yes, there's no reason you can't use a fingertip grip either given that the buttons are still easily clickable a third of the way (if not nearly halfway!) from the front of the mouse - just observe in photos where the split between the buttons end.
This mouse immediately *feels* a lot better than the IME3 with the beautiful clean feel of matte plastic (I don't think it's a coating per se, but it reminds me of the perfect back of the Nexus 5 phone) and the buttons feel a lot more refined. The mouse wheel scrolls a little stiffer but that should make it much better suited for fps games - it's not a difficult wheel that one needs to fight against but I suppose some might say it feels slightly cheap in sound. There's room for improvement but it's hardly a deal-breaker here.
The main difference I've so far noticed is that Button 4 (side button furthest from cable) is set a bit further back than on the IME3 but it's something I'll quickly adapt to. As mentioned by others, the side buttons do have some slight "give" in them but I'm also one to prefer this intended design. It's not really loose "play" as such, and certainly doesn't feel cheap like the side buttons of the IME3.
The Huano switches here feel and sound noticeably "crisper" than the Omron switches of the IME3 - very slightly louder, higher pitched, and combined with a superior mouse casing construction (the main buttons aren't separate parts), less "mushy". I think I'll like this mouse a lot - hopefully it also translates to greater durability; something which the IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 never seemed to maintain for too long.
My main usage scenario is desktop browsing, and very occasionally some very bad Counter-Strike. My mousepads of choice are cheap cloth pads.
* Main types of grips: palm, claw, fingertip
There are no drivers, so 400 DPI = red mousewheel, 800 DPI = pink mousewheel, 1600 DPI = blue mousewheel, 3200 DPI = green mousewheel. So I have a pink mouse on my desk because I want 800 DPI.
-Only fingertip grip supported; palm doesn't touch mouse
-Mouse looks like it cost $15
-Pink RGB if you want 800 DPI!?
-Material makes hand sweaty much faster than competitors
Returning for sure ASAP. Avoid if you don't need a driverless mouse. I don't doubt the hardware inside isn't some of the best, but literally every other aspect of owning this mouse is sub-par, especially considering the wide range of alternatives within this price range.
The sensor is also accurate and snappy, but the seeming lack of any friction on the mouse feet, causing a lack of tactile feedback for gauging motion, can make the mouse initially feel inaccurate. So strangely enough, I would have preferred either a slightly heavier mouse or a redesign of the mouse feet to add a bit of tactile friction.
My problems with the mouse are the overly stiff and loud left/right buttons and the loud scroll wheel for which the LED cannot be disabled without physical modding. With a lighter shell at the mouse buttons and omron switches instead of the current huanos, this would be the best mouse on earth for those looking for a simple yet ergonomic mouse for any application, especially for finger tip gripping. It's hailed as the new king of competitive FPS gaming, but it also should be appreciated for its perfected ergonomics, supporting health in any computing application.
As a side note, I've been testing many different gaming mice, including the EC1-A. The EC1-A feels great too, but has a bit more potential for finger cramp than the EC2-A. Most other mice have inferior shapes for the finger tip grip I'm going for, including the Deathadder (which isn't bad, basically an inferior version of the EC2-A shape), Mamba (laser and ok shape), G403 (horrible for my fingertip grip despite how promising the mouse is otherwise), the rest of logitech's modern lineup (just bad for fingertip due to lack of support for ring finger) Steelseries Rival 300 and 500 (300 is close, but right side slope doesn't extent far enough to the front of the mouse. 500 is too wide and switches are cheap), Fnatic Flick (really awkward design), G400s (initially promising but awkward for all grips due to the concave right side, imo), and Corsair Scimitar (initially super comfortable, but too wide for me personally).
It actually seems like Logitech is purposely making mice that are perfect in every way, but with the single qualification that fingertip-only mouse movement is incompatible. It prevents me from ever using their seemingly awesome mice like the G303, G403 and G502. Logitech: if you just made your own EC2-A-shaped mouse, and no not whatever counter-intuitive shape like what you used for the G403, but with your Logitech build quality and features, you'd have the best mouse on the planet.
i got the ec1-a..had it for a month then the mouse 3 button got completly stuck down and broke. sent in for an rma, got it...and within 3 days the same issue happened. was able to unstick the mouse3 button but i am returning this p.o.s because it's not gonna work long run and i cant risk this mouse failing while in game or in a match.
avoid zowie..getting a steelseries rival as a replacement
