BenQ ZOWIE FK1 vs. FK1+ vs. FK2 vs. FK1-B vs. FK1+-B vs. FK2-B

The ZOWIE FK is a series of low profile Esports gaming mouse from BenQ. You have six different models to choose from with the FK1, FK1+, FK2, FK1-B, FK1+-B and FK2-B. So which of these best fit your needs? You can find out in this comparison guide.

Quick Summary

The BenQ ZOWIE FK1, BenQ ZOWIE FK1+ and BenQ ZOWIE FK2 are designed for right-handed gamers, left-handed gamers and ambidextrous gamers as these three are symmetrical and features two buttons on both the left and right sides. The BenQ ZOWIE FK1-B, BenQ ZOWIE FK1+-B and BenQ ZOWIE FK2-B are made for right-handed gamers as the two buttons on the right side have been removed.

BenQ also raised the mouse cable attachment point slightly higher with the newer FK1-B, FK1+-B and FK2-B to prevent cable dragging.

If you are looking for a left-handed and/or ambidextrous mouse, then the only options are the FK1, FK1+ and FK2. If you are looking for a right-handed only mouse, then we recommend the newer FK1-B, FK1+-B and FK2-B due to the higher mouse cable attachment point (to prevent cable drag) and removal of the two right side buttons (for better comfort if you are right handed).

In terms of size, the ZOWIE FK1 and ZOWIE FK1-B are the biggest while the ZOWIE FK2 and ZOWIE FK2-B are the smallest. The ZOWIE FK1+ and ZOWIE FK1+-B are in the middle.
