1.5 mm lift-off distance - one of the lowest on the market to date. One of the primary features of the ZOWIE EC-series is the lift-off distance. ZOWIE EC-series has made it possible to create one of the lowest lift-off distance currently available in any optical mouse on the market - 1.5 mm. Most optical mice are 125Hz which can be artificially raised to 500 - 1,000Hz through driver installations. The ZOWIE EC mice were the first optical mice to introduce 1,000 Hz from standard, without any installation of drivers. The mouse use an optical encoder instead of the cheaper traditional mechanical system and added a new optimized rolling system developed by ZOWIE, which ensures that the mouse wheel is the most durable and precise mouse wheel on the market today.

Build Quality is excellent. It is heavier than I expected it to be, but in a good way. Also, I have medium size hands and claw grip mice hence why I picked the EC2-eVo. For comparisons sake, if you own a Naga (which is a small mouse) it is bigger than that, but still smaller than a full sized Death-Adder. Its a perfect middle ground. If you have large bear paws, the EC1 is the same size as a DA.
Tracking feels more precise. Thats not to say my DA was not, but you can still tell the difference. Also, there have been a lot of reports about the optical sensor being so sensitive that it discriminates against some mouse pads. This is true, so be prepared to possibly get a new quality mousepad. I currently use it on my Goliathus "Fragged" control mouse pad and it tracks perfectly. That said, if I put it on my desk by itself, it doesn't track as well.
No driver software needed, no BS, no ridiculous blinky lights. This mouse has a simply DPI switch with 3 very good defaults, tactile mouse clicks from all buttons, and it just feels fantasitic.
The only criticism I would give it if I was pressed to critique is the mousewheel. It is by no means bad, its just...different. You can feel every click but its a little harder to roll than other mousewheels i have used. I do understand why people may say it feels loose. Its just a different feel altogether. That said, it really is difficult to tell what anyone means when they say different like I am, just know that it wont be what you expect. Thats not necessarily a bad thing, given it works perfectly.
At first glance, its the most impressive mouse I have used, but then again I am only on day 1. Lets see how it holds up. :)
It was only available online and so I was a bit skeptical about ordering it, thinking I'd just end up returning it. NOPE. The moment I put my palm around this mouse, I knew it was the one. It feels amazing and I love the fact that it's just plug and play. No stupid and resource hogging software to intall for it. 3 DPI modes, optical sensor, long cable, and a mouse wheel with nice notchy clicks. I hate those mouse wheels with really loose notches or no notches at all. If you are the same, this is the mouse for you.
I will say on my first one, the mouse wheel stopped responding all the time after about 8 months. I contacted Zowie and they sent me a prepaid shipping label and sent me a new one free. The shipping was fast, too. Thank you Zowie. Life long fan here.
However, I appreciate that Zowie was able to deliver the same feel as the Deathadder without the need to install the Razer bloatware. All you have to do is to plug the mouse into a USB port and you're good to go.
-2 stars: Possibly the biggest downside of this mouse was the short lifespan. I used and abused my Razer for about two years. Within a period of about two months, the Zowie EC1 eVo under less strenuous conditions, is starting to show signs of wear. The click buttons were taking a little bit longer to rebound back, the Teflon pads looked like they had been used for two years instead of two months, and the matte coating was begining to wear off. Three months into using the mouse, the matte coating began to peel in large quantities; this left a shiny, black plastic behind and ruined the feel of the mouse.
If you want to replace this mouse every few months, it's a fantastic buy. Else, buy another mouse.
