Zowie EC2 Gaming Mouse and G-TF Mouse Pad
We think the mouse doesn’t get the love it deserves. It’s a lowly peripheral that is usually passed over by the more sexy components inside a system, yet the lowly rodent is probably the most used component, with a direct interface to the user. Stop for a second and think about it, how many times have you said to yourself “Hey I think I’m going to buy a new mouse and try something different”? Probably never. A mouse is one of those things that we look for when the old one isn’t functioning the way it should, and is very often an afterthought.
And breaking into any market isn’t easy, simply because it’s often dominated by a few large companies. There are often then also smaller companies that specialize in certain niche areas, so finding a spot somewhere amongst this spectrum is often difficult. Zowie is a company that’s been looking to do just that, as we’ve seen with a couple of their gaming peripherals the last couple of days. And today we’re taking a look at one last peripheral in the gaming trifecta of the headset and keyboard: the mouse.
Zowie is a relatively new company and has jumped into a pond amongst some pretty big fish, perhaps you might even say sharks. Today we will be looking at Zowie’s EC2 gaming mouse. The EC2 looks appealing, for those looking for a low cost gaming mouse. And while the outward aesthetics may help sell a mouse, it’s the comfort, ergonomics, and interface are what often make or break the deal for most diehard gamers. And what’s a gaming mouse without a gaming surface, so as an added bonus, we’re also looking at the Zowie G-TF mouse pad.
Let’s dive into the review and see what Zowie has to offer.
