Especially if you coming from a v1 e200, the Fuze is a welcome surprise.
The first thing youl noticed is correct, the display is softer, and the graphics of the main menu look wimpy, despite their cute animations. The softness is due to the anti-scratch coating of the face plastic, as well as the color shift.
You can adjust the brightness up a tad to match what you’ve been used to with the e200.
The scroll wheel uses five individual button switches that have a firmer feel than the e200, and they do clunk in comparison. The Clip also has these. They are indeed louder than the e200.
The biggest difference in the scroll wheel is its integration into the round 4-point button via spinning the wheel. It has a soft feel, since there is no wiper contact as on the e200. This is accomlpished using a magnetic sensor. You’ll get used to its quirkiness, and the Fuze’s habit of ignoring the initial movement of the wheel occasionally. Since it doesn’t have the fine increments of the e200 contact wheel, to scroll requires “winding her up”.
The wraparound scroll of the e200 will be finding its way to the Fuze in the near future.
