Conclusion: MS-3 turned out to be an awesome mouse with a great ergonomics. Technically it works without problems, and it is very pleasant to use because of its shape and coating. This mouse should be an excellent choise for users, who prefer palm grip. The price is a bit high, being at about 80 euros, but in my opinion it is totally worth it. The mouse pad is also pretty good product, though it has a small quality issue.
Pros: Packing, Design, Ergonomic, Soft-touch coating, Software, Build quality, ADNS 9500, Selectable surface, Slick, Easy to clean, No skipping noticed
Cons: ADNS 9500, A small issue with the software, Rougher side wears out the sliding pads, Quality issue with the frame, Price
Conclusion: Does the new shape take some time to get used to; I would say yes. Your hand memory of how a standard mouse feels gets all whacked out when you first grab the MS-3 mouse. After using it for a while you start to get use to the new feeling and begin to get more comfortable and understand the design and layout of the buttons.
Conclusion: They got it right. It isn't perfect, and won't be for claw or fingertip grip users, but the MS-3 is a well-constructed device with a focus on giving you an advantage in-game. It does that quite well - better than most, I'd say. The MS-3 is a top performer. Even using the MS-3 on pads other than the 1030 XL didn't cause any strange sensor behavior. Laser sensors can be notorious for preferring certain surfaces; I didn't notice any of this type of behavior with the MS-3.
Pros: Comfortable!, A lot of thought put into every detail, Features really do let you focus on your game, DPI/Sensitivity/Angle Snapping/Button Assignments/LEDs all customizable, Has a sense of style - great design throughout, Very comfortable grip for palm grip users (and anyone that likes comfortable mice...), Dependable and consistant tracking
Cons: Palm grip only!, Palms/mouse will get sweaty, Macro editor needs to be little more powerful
Conclusion: This is an excellent mouse that sells for around 80$ in the states, I think the pricetag is a tad to steep. Overall though this is a very nice mouse with excellent performance, nice features and tons of buttons.
Summary: The Func MS-3 is a very nice mouse for play, but has a few downsides besides it high price of $79. You do not get the latest generation of Avago's high-end laser sensor, which curtails the mouse's DPI a bit—a minor issue as most gamers do no utilize anything above 4000 DPI. What you do get are very good ergonomics for pretty much all hand sizes along with a wealth of easily assignable buttons.
Pros: Superb ergonomics, Good build quality, Lots of buttons, Feature rich, Nice design, Good driver suite, Great tracking, Two different high-performance surfaces, Base design is very good, Comfortable to use, Perfect glide and control, Compatible with most mice
Cons: Large and slightly heavy, Pricey!, Some buttons are not that useful, Balance of the mouse is not perfect, Not the newest generation sensor, Scratches show easily, Can be noisy when dirty
