So far so Good

Summary: I just received the mouse and I am pleased so far. The mouse doesn't come with a cd which is fine but make sure you go to the webpage and download the driver. Once downloaded, click on the exe files and it will install the program that allows you to create a bunch of different functions for the keys. I bought this mouse due to the ability to use on either hand.
Summary: I have really enjoyed using this mouse. The extra 6 buttons are programmable to any button or macro, which is very helpful for everything from gaming to programming. The only program that I have experienced with it is that it will sometimes stop responding for a split second, which is enough to notice, but it doesn't really hinder anything. More of a nuisance than anything.
After a few months of use I can honestly say I made a good choice buying this mouse

Summary: Product fits very well! After a few months of use I can honestly say I made a good choice buying this mouse. I initially had a hard time installing the drivers for this mouse but that was a quick fix by visiting the Cooler Master website and getting it from there. Other wise I think this mouse is fantastic and would recommend this to anybody, especially at this price point.
Hard surfaces like a regular table require a higher LOD

Summary: change the LOP from 3 to 5 on your custom profile setting if the mouse becomes unresponsive when changing profiles. "LOD means Lift Off DIstance, and depending on your surface the LOD is higher or lower. Softer surfaces let your mouse sink into them, lowering the LOD. Hard surfaces like a regular table require a higher LOD." Nice mouse. Had a problem at first but the above fixed it. You can also change the colors of all parts of the mouse to any color you want.
Summary: Wanted a new mouse, had an already aging Tt eSports Azurures 1600 dpi, while it was good i needed a replacement since it was dying. Got this little mouse for cheap [30 bucks]. The RGB leds are really nice. The mouse doesnt have weights for adjusting it as the azurues thats a reason por 4 stars. Only mouse and manuals are included. You must separately download Recon software for configuring macros and leds.
Summary: Amazing mouse if you can actually use the thing. And by that I mean not deal with the massive hump in the back and hitting the other 2 side buttons. Yes, you can disable them in the mouse's config. But dat hump doe. In short, good for palm style people. Fingertip style mouse users like myself? This ain't what you're looking for.
Summary: I bought this mouse because, like all the previous bluetooth mice i've owned, the bluetooth connector finally gave out and I needed a replacement. Since I game, I needed mouse buttons on the sides and adjustable dpi. This mouse fit that role better than I thought it would and I would recommend this to just about anyone. The only downside to this mouse is that mouse buttons are placed pretty weird.
Summary: This mouse is comfortable to my hand. I like the texture, its that sort of rubbery black material, feels cool. The lights are pretty sweet that they change color. I do like the quick dpi switch but I wish there was more adjust-ability. Its a BIG jump from one setting to the next.
Summary: This is a good mouse for the price. It's accurate and it looks nice with the lights. One con tho: the mouse is on the smaller side of mouses, if you have big hands like me I suggest going for the g400s since it's around the same price point.
Summary: I've used Razer Abyssus a while ago and was using Logitech G300 models before giving this CM Storm Recon a try. For those who are not familiar, both Razer Abyssus and G300 are on the lighter side of gaming mouse in terms of weight, and sized for relatively small hand size. As for the grip, I use more of a "semi claw grip" where I don't arch my palm as much as traditional claw type grip, but instead let the right side of my palm rest slightly on the butt of the mouse.
