What customers say about "Key Specs"
BenQ ZOWIE S2 Symmetrical-Short Gaming Mouse
  • The side buttons are so much better than my G305's and just quite good feeling overall.
  • With this mouse I don’t even have to move any of my fingers at all. My hand is relaxed and I’m not worried adjusting grip to press those buttons on the side.
  • The contour of the shell and the materials used are just perfect. It feels so nice to hold.
  • The scrollwheel is loud AF and the 16 steps makes it feel awful for scrolling web pages/documents.
  • When you press very hard the left click also presses the mouse wheel.
BenQ ZOWIE ZA13 Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse
  • It's a no nonsense plug and play mouse with a great sensor.
  • Aiming with the mouse feels great. The sensor works flawlessly.
  • Sensor tracks extremely well.
  • Very good mouse overall, good shape, good sensor.
  • Decent sensor which is fine for top tier fps play.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
BenQ ZOWIE S2 Symmetrical-Short Gaming Mouse
  • Shape is pretty good. The S2 is heaven in comparison with G305. I just feel the rear is a little too fat but it may just be the overall size of the mouse.
  • I found that despite all being fairly lightweight, the thing that improved my performance the most was shape.
  • The mouse is very light compared to my death adder, g402, g403 and so is very easy to maneuver.
  • The mouse wheel is fine for games. And this mouse is the perfect size, fits very well in the hand.
  • The shape fits my grip style like a glove, the matte black finish not only feels glorious but it is a pleasure to look at too.
BenQ ZOWIE ZA13 Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse
  • The ZA series has three sizes, the ZA13 which is small. And it is very nice.
  • Perfect size. My favorite one so far. Excellent for gaming, I like the grip and its precision.
  • There are three versions to suit different size hands. I like ZA13.
  • They are always comfortable as long as u buy ur grip and size mouse.
  • Its a good mouse if you like this size.

What customers say about "Features"
BenQ ZOWIE S2 Symmetrical-Short Gaming Mouse
  • The S2 clicks feel more satisfying and helps improve my gaming experience.
  • Feet feel pretty good. Comes with replacement.
  • No need to install software. Configure DPI and polling rate with the two buttons below the mouse.
  • The scrollwheel is very good when you bind it to something where you don't want to accidentally scroll two or more times since it's hard to do so.
  • Feet could be a bit thicker. If you press down the mouse too much it could increase friction by a lot since they're so thin. Might last less too because of it.
BenQ ZOWIE ZA13 Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse
  • The wheel has a nice feel.
  • Lack of software and the dpi adjustment via button on the bottom is useful.
  • The mouse's skates are large and last forever.
  • Side buttons are very tactile and responsive, requiring very little travel before actuation.
  • Zowie uses Huano switches rather than Omron for their primary and secondary buttons, which are 'tighter' and 'heavier'.
