Looking at the EC1 eVo from the left side shows you three things right away. There is the egg shape of the top with its smooth transition from the highest point all the way down to the sides and the back. There is also a pair of buttons found here, and the last thing is the rubberized coating that has been applied.

From the back, you obviously see the white painted Zowie name and logo, but if you look up, you can also see that there is an ergonomic lean to the top of this mouse. This allows you hand to sit more naturally over the mouse without tweaking your wrist.

On the right side, there isn't a rest for your extra fingers, but to help you when you do have to lift the EC1 eVo, the side does curve under the mouse to give you something to grab onto.

Looking at the front of the EC1 eVo, you get the main right and left click buttons, and then between them is a white scroll wheel that will illuminate when powered up to denote DPI. Aside from that, there are just smooth curves and a "grippy" rubber coating to keep you in control even when heated up a bit sweaty.

To protect the feet and the optical sensor in transit, Zowie ships the EC1 eVo with a layer of plastic over it.

With that plastic out of the way, you can see this mouse uses two large feet to allow it to glide over most surfaces with ease. If you look in the middle and find the sensor, just to the right of it is where the DPI button is located.

With the EC1 eVo you get a full two meters of cable to connect the mouse to the PC. The connection is gold plated to help fight oxidation, and the cable is left with the plasticized coating, no braid needed.
