Summary: In accordance with some other reviews, I personally thought that the mouse felt somewhat flimsy. However, that does not mean that it really is flimsy. After 9 months of use I have not had any problems with its durability. Of course, I treat it carefully anyway; someone who would use it in a bit of a rough manner may not see it last long. By rough I mean really pounding on the buttons or even occasionally tossing it in a fit of rage.
Pros: Ergonomic: Size and shape fit my hands very well, and the buttons are quite accessible in their positions. As a point of reference, I wear medium size disposable or latex gloves., Stylish: That sexy blue light., Simple: Gaming grade DPI; simple switch for 3 DPI settings; adds those 2 extra, programmable buttons on the side. Very accessible price.
Cons: Immediately on its first day of use it would not function properly on the mouse pad I had. When I moved the mouse, the cursor would move erratically, and sometimes the cursor would move despite the mouse being still. However, it works reliably on my wooden desk as well as on the wooden, folding table (the latter being what I use it on the most, since I like taking some distance from the desk, or rather, the screen). I'm fine without mouse pads, so I didn't try looking...
Summary: I began using this mouse on a black mouse pad and it worked great It had everything I needed for 20 bucks, the perfect gaming mouse, A few weeks later it would not read on black surfaces only on white and it worked fine for a few more weeks until no matter what I do it chops and will not read accurately to the point where I had to go ahead and order a new mouse.
Summary: First bought this mouse and it worked great! Unfortunately, 6 months later it's barely usable. First I thought it was my mouse pad that it wasn't recognizing. (granted my last mouse had no such issue and it's 6yrs older) Switched pads and somewhat worked well up until now it hops and skips and abruptly stops when I move my mouse.
Summary: I bought two of these to replace a pair of 4-year-old Razer Salmosas that were getting a little grody. I used the first for about three months before the sensor started failing, sending my mouse pointer either jerking all over the screen or stuck in one spot, barely moving or completely stuck. Occasionally, reconnecting the USB would temporarily fix it. Cleaning the sensor and/or my (soft, solid black) mousepad had no effect.
Pros: - I like blue. Blue is cool.
Cons: Sensor fails, mouse body is on the large and heavy side.
Summary: When I bought this mouse I thought or expected it to last for more then a year....less then 6 months later it's already going bad. I've tried cleaning the mouse, using different USBs but nothing. it's just a cheap quality mouse and not worth the price it's at right now. I've had $5 mice last much longer then this one. needless to say I will not be buying another GIGABYTE mouse in the future since they're now on blacklist of products of DO NOT BUY.
Pros: good mouse while it lasts.
Cons: mouse pointer starts to freak with no control over it. does not last very long.
Summary: I have medium sized hands (typically wear )medium surgical gloves, and other gloves) and this mouse has proven to be too wide for me. I typically grip with my thumb and ring finger, and the spread tends to make my hand sore.
Pros: High dpi, not a heavy mouse, functional.
Cons: Too wide, not terribly ergonomic for my hand's use. Read other thoughts on why.
Pros: I was very worried this mouse would be uncomfortable. However, I have had no problems with it. I really like the added buttons for a mouse this price and the size of the mouse. I recommend this mouse only for people who claw a mouse. If you palm to grip the mouse, you will find it uncomfortable.
Cons: Only for claw grippers, or it will be uncomfortable.
Summary: I truly regret jumping the gun and reviewing this mouse sooner than I should have. I wish Newegg would let you edit reviews you've already done before, but oh well.
Pros: I originally gave this mouse 2 stars and was going to return it, but I decided to use it a little longer because I really wanted to like it. I have to say, it has grown on me a lot. I can't believe how much better the sensor is on this compared to the G500 I was using before and, once you get adjusted, it is quite comfortable. I LOVE this mouse now.
Cons: *WARNING* - You need to let yourself acclamate to the way this mouse is shaped! Especially if you are a serious palm grip user!
