Thanks to the information from early buyers, it is discovered that random double-clicks are observed in the new ZOWIE FK1, FK2, ZA11, ZA12, ZA13, EC1-A, EC2-A models and such occurrences are discovered so far in the Nordic and the North America region. Due to reliability concerns, production and worldwide sales of the above mentioned models will be halted. Consumers that have acquired the specific products can call your retailer and register for you replacement within valid warranty.

In countries and regions that are not aforementioned, it is with little possibility for consumers to experience the random double-clicking. Nonetheless, owners of the FK1, FK2, ZA11, ZA12, ZA13, EC1-A, EC2-A models are offered with product replacement -- no condition binding and you can contact your local retailor for more information.

Probably not, I have a FK2 haven't noticed the double click bug myself, mind you I don't have a lot of hours with it.

I don't get double clicks but the sensor on my FK1 just bugs out for a few seconds every now and then.

lmfao guys the recall is for the new benq models with the red logo, 16 step scroll wheel and omron switches instead of huano blues. they never even reached australian stores so don't worry you don't need to get a replacement.

Yeah I was thinking this. When I saw the word 'new' I assumed they meant the new benq line but then everyone started going on about problems with mice they've had for a few months so i just kept my mouth shut haha. Cheers for pointing it out.
