Zowie FK1 gaming mouse review

 

Zowie is well known for products aimed at gamers. Their latest FK1 gaming mouse appears to hit the right marks on paper but does it frag the competition in practice? Let's find out.

At the start of this review I asked whether the FK1 offered something different from the competition for the price. In many ways, I think it does. It has an extremely accurate optical sensor with onboard DPI adjustment and doesn't need any installation...

Zowie FK1 Review

 

It would be fair to say that the approach many gaming peripheral manufacturers take is to throw in as many features as they can. That could be the massive amount of buttons on the likes of the Razer Naga. Or the high DPI of the Kone XTD and G700s....

In terms of design the Zowie FK1 feels like a classic gaming mouse. Very much in the style of devices we would have used a decade or so ago. Since then many other manufacturers have moved on to much more extreme designes but really there was a lot to...

Open Box - Zowie FK1 Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse - Large

 

Includes probably the most accurate sensor you can buy, comes spare feet and changeable dpi on the mouse.

It is ambidextrous unlike my old mouse, so it took a while to get used to.

Open Box - Zowie FK1 Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse - Large

 

Excellent Mouse, very light and agile. Easy to set up as it does not use any drivers other than Microsoft's own. Could not ask for anything more in te rms of precision and comfort. I tend to use claw grip, and this is a good mouse for that purpose, but...

The lack of proprietary drivers limits customisability, and my inability to remap the side mouse buttons led me to use independent software to change their bindings. Slightly finer control over the DPI would have been appreciated. I have settled and...
