I bought Zowie FK2 gaming mouse in 2015, but at that time I mainly played StarCraft and War3. And I found Zowie FK2 is not particularly suitable for RTS games and has been idle until now.
In recent years, with the popularity of FPS games, I found it really great to play FPS games with Zowie FK2.
Today I will review BenQ Zowie FK2 ambidextrous gaming mouse from these following aspects.
|Dimensions L x W x H||124×64×36mm|
|Weight||85 g/ 3.2 oz|
|Cable||2 metres, rubber|
|Interface||USB 2.0 / 3.0|
|Grip Type||Palm / Claw|
|DPI||400 / 800 / 1600 / 3200|
|Report Rate||125 / 500 / 1000 Hz|
|Maximum Acceleration||30 G|
|Max Tracking Speed||130 IPS|
Zowie Fk series has 3 models: FK1+, FK1, and Fk2. In terms of size and weight, FK1+ is the largest, FK1 is medium, FK2 is the smallest. My hand size is 17.5cm, FK2 is perfectly suitable.
Zowie FK2 is a 5 buttons mouse, the left and right-click buttons feel harder. It needs to be pressed harder than the Logitech gaming mice I’ve used, but there will be no accidental touch.
The scroll wheel has an obvious sense of damping and scale, the only unpleasant about the scroll wheel is a bit noisy!
Zowie FK2 equipped with Avago ADNS-3310 optical sensor, with a 400/800/1,600/3,200 dpi, and adjustable 125/500/1000 Hz report rate, it can basically meet the needs of most FPS game players. Because Zowie FK2 is a plug and play mouse, no software required, so it is not as convenient as other gaming mice to adjust DPI.
The mouse cable is relatively soft, but it will not affect the operation.
Ps, I will recommend you to buy a mouse cable holder if possible.
Zowie FK2 adopted Ambidextrous design, it is suitable for palm or claw grip type.
Zowie FK2 mouse is specially designed for FPS games, it is very comfortable to play PUBG games.
When using this mouse to aim and shoot, it is indeed more accurate than my Logitech G304.
