BenQ Zowie FK2 Review – The Best Budget FPS Gaming Mouse

Zowie FK2 Gaming Mouse Review

I bought a 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.

Size

Zowie FK2 Size

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.

Buttons

Zowie FK2 Buttons

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.

Scroll Wheel

Zowie FK2 Scroll Wheel

The scroll wheel has an obvious sense of damping and scale, the only unpleasant about the scroll wheel is a bit noisy!

Sensor

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.

Cable

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.
