Summary: Had NO expectations other then my last gigabyte M8000 which was great just like my logitech g9 till both stopped working. Initially the M7 Thor felt light till i compared Both 1st edition razer copperhead & lachesis.This mouse is WIDER then lachesis & feels MORE like the original boomslang 2000. Mice that make me clench my fingers together as if playing with chop sticks SUCK !!!
Summary: Was really impressed initially with the price and style and function of this mouse - then the sensor/laser broke. Initially it was as if the sensor was being turned off and on again and then finally it just quit. Seems like a common problem amongst those that use this mouse for everyday computer-ing. I'd suggest you save yourself the eventual headache and invest in a solid mouse with a reputable peripheral company.
Summary: Saw this mouse deal on NCIX for 19.99 after 5 mail-in-rebate. Had someone delivered it over their stop trip from Richmond along with a fido contract sim card. Never gonna do that again. Otherwise, best gaming mouse i've ever owned. Mail-in-rebate was easy to do, but still waiting for the $5. I tried sensei before and it died first time i tried using it. Keep up the work Gigabyte.
Pros: Ergonomic, ambidextrous, nice finish, on the fly DPI change. quality felt durable. Medium-Light weight
Summary: If you have a larger hand don't bother. It is low and narrow at the palm end. It wants to go sideways in my hand due to the narrow palm, and no support for my fingers on the left side. I will need to find a larger mouse.
Pros: It works as advertised. Side buttons are high enough. Plug and play.
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 bought 2 of these mice on sale. When I first got them they worked fine. After about 40 days the sensor in one started to fail out and the mouse now jitters across the screen making the mouse worthless since I play fps games and it is impossible to aim. 2 weeks after that the sensor in the other mouse did the same thing. I have tried both mice on my friends computer to make sure it was not some sort of driver issue or computer error on my end.
Summary: First time buying a gaming mouse so I bought this since it looks good and it's very cheap. First few weeks, I was quite impressed with it since it felt good with my hands and it had a pretty cool looking laser. After 2 months, I started having weird random movements with the mouse and at first I thought maybe having a mouse pad would solve the problem so I bought a Razor Goliathus mouse pad unfortunately it didn't solve problem.
