With a fair bit of time now with the Zora, we have gotten pretty used to it. The feel looks like it may be a bit strange to feel under your hand, but in reality the higher arching back and the ridge lines are comfortable and feels very good under our hand. With our relaxed grip style, or palm grip as they refer to it, the shape lends itself to sit in the palm, and the sides are curved and with the grip inserts, there is no way the Zora will get past your grip. While black mice are exactly that, black, Epicgear adds in a bold, bright orange color to use on the lower section of the mouse, as well as adding that same color into the braid of the cabling, giving the Zora a truly unique presence on the desk.
The buttons are solid, and every click is audible, but the force required to press the switches is not too much. As Goldilocks says, they are "just right." With ten million clicks at your disposal, it will be a long time before you can claim to be close to wearing out the switches. We like seeing Kailh switches as the secondary switches, and nobody has ever thrown in an Omron switch under the scroll wheel that we have seen.
The Avago sensor is smooth in combination with software setting; you can fine tune the Zora even further. Bass or vibrations do not lead to jitter, and with its adjustable weighting, we found we enjoyed the Zora most with no weights at all under the cover, it just seemed to float across the desk much better.
With all of the factors mulled over and considered, we can only see one issue with the Zora IR LED gaming mouse, and sadly it is the lack of availability on this side of the planet. We realize it takes some time to get to global status, but holding these sort of designs in front of us and having to dangle treats in front of you that you may never be able to get; it's a tough pill to swallow. What makes it that much worse, is that it is a great product, and for right around $50, we have no reason that you should not be investing time looking into the Zora as your next mouse. Those of you lucky enough to have direct access to the Zora, it is right up there with mice offered at nearly double the cost. We do find it hard to find fault with any aspect of this design.
