Good design but ghost software buggy!

Chris D., Newegg
27 July 2014
  • Summary: If you unplug & re-plug in the USB connection then mouse control returns (for awhile anyway). Going to check into a RMA with newegg.
  • Pros: Like the way it feels & it's laser is tops! Plenty of button & macro assignments & customizing available. DPI settings are changeable on the fly (4 settings) adjustable from 400 to 6000dpi. There is 4-way scrolling using center tilt-wheel.
  • Cons: Gigabyte Ghost software for this M8000X is buggy. When you setup (even the most basic) button assignments, the mouse tracking will sometimes freeze or cursor drift with little control. NOTE: there is very little detailed no tutorials or video for using M8000X ghost mouse software...very little.

Falls short of other gaming mice

Patrick K., Newegg
16 February 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this mouse solely for the 6000DPI to grant me an edge in certain games. But the shortcomings of the programming/profiling software and the horrible DPI button sent me right back to my Logitech G9x after 2 hours.
  • Pros: 6000 DPI, highest on the market. Responsive, well sprung primary buttons
  • Cons: The DPI switch is poorly designed. The fact that it is a rocker switch (opposed to two discreet up/down buttons) and its placement on the center of the mouse, make it necessary to take your fingers off the primary mouse buttons to change DPI on the fly. In most games this is a very bad thing. Add...

Awesome mouse, poor design.

Michael F., Newegg
23 July 2010
  • Summary: I really like this mouse, unfortunately they overlooked one simple flaw. Back to my mx510.
  • Pros: Very smooth and responsive. Definitely hits hard were it counts, the adjustable DPi comes in handy more than you think. Scroll whell feels very sturdy. It also looks really cool!
  • Cons: The "feet" on the bottom are just stickers! flimsy plastic stickers. Within the first month the back sticker peeled its way off and I was left with a sticky non slidable surface. I finally found the replacement feet the conveniently provide with it. Needless to say after another month or so that ...

Great mouse w/ tracking issues

D&D I., Newegg
6 July 2010
  • Summary: Like I stated above, the mouse if a great fit and is awesome when its tracking correctly. Gigabyte needs to fix the issue at hand. I am not the only one complaining about this problem.
  • Pros: Mouse is great for people like me that have large hands. Very comfortable and has a good amount of features
  • Cons: Like others have stated the tracking goes to hell every so often. I have to unplug the usb and plug it back in again. Most of the time that clears it up. Gigabyte needs to address that before I spend money on another one of their mice. Maybe a firmware or software fix gigabyte? Would be nice seei...

Owner of Previous model

brad l., Newegg
24 June 2010
  • Summary: Not a bad mouse over all. It's my 1st gaming mouse. Think I'm gonna try a Logitech to see if I get better results. Again I own the previous model of this & maybe the software setup has changed a bit...
  • Pros: Nice mouse over all. Weighted mouse feels great. No pointing or hardware issues
  • Cons: Right side mouse buttons are not programmable. When playing MW2 I accidentally click & change DPI settings buttons (on the right side). Programming not very simple as it should be (but I could be a total moron [very possible]).
