Conclusion: It took me quite a while to get familiar with the MS-3² as it’s a different sort of mouse, so if you’re thinking about buying it you’ll need to get that adjustment period in mind as it seems longer than other mice.
Pros: Ergonomic, Fits whole hand, Thick braided cord, Lots of customization options, Lots of buttons, Instant Aim button is handy, Quick profile switching, Can change colors separately
Cons: Large mouse, Right hand only, Takes longer than average to get accustomed to, Can accidentally hit extra button for undesired result
Func MS-3 Gaming Mouse & 1030 Surfaces Video Review
3 November 2013
Summary: The Func MS-3 Gaming Mouse looks great, is comfortable to hold, comes with customizable buttons & LEDs using included software, excellent Avago ADNS 9500 laser sensor & great Omron switches. The 1030 gaming mousepads are well made, offer two surface textures and base has rubber feet.
Conclusion: Now onto the solitary negative. It’s absolutely criminal that the macro suite is barren. Shogun Bros had a deeper suite than my Mamba offered at this price point so why not Func? Not even registering mouse clicks during the recording just strikes me as bizarre.
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.
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...
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: Users with big hands will love the MS-3. It is very comfortable because it supports the whole hand, and the weight is so well-distributed that it doesn’t need a weight adjustment system. Buttons are well-located around the thumb area.
Pros: Suited for big-handed players, Twelve programmable functions, Excellent button placement, Comfortable rest for the whole band, Clean and simple configuration software, Instant Aim feature for emergency resolution changes, Beautiful illumination, Ingenious solution of having two different surfaces...
Cons: Small-handed users might find it clunky, Only basic macro recording features
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.
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
Summary: At first I was having some isolated issues with the MS-3, but I did eventually resolve them. I left the mouse with all of its default settings intact aside from customizing the LEDs and changing the DPI.
