High Precision? Yep. Laser? Yep! Gaming Mouse? Sometimes.

Summary: Other thoughts:
Pros: My last mouse was a plain 3 button Microsoft Optical Wheel Mouse v2.0. Five mouse buttons plus DPI modification button. I'm so glad I can go forward/backwards on my Web browsers using the mouse.
Cons: Middle mouse button is semi-broken and doesn't always work despite regular cleaning and gentle use. Sometimes I have to press in an awkward way for the button to work. This is very inconvenient while closing tabs in Internet browsers.
Summary: No mouse wheel left and right movements ( nickpicking :D )
Pros: Very lightweight and comfortable feel, adjustable DPI and affordable price with nice button layout.
Cons: It is lightweight and it feels very cheap, it is very very very picky about the surface its on, I have a steelseries mousepad that has worked with every mouse I've ever owned ranging from a cheap dollar brand to g5, g9's and this mouse does not like the surface at all or any other I've tried for that matter.
Summary: this is a great mouse for the price, nice weight, nice shape, and 3 dpi settings. There is a flaw though. When scrolling down website pages with the scroll wheel, it opens random pages that fly past so you end up with unwanted tabs opening because the middle (scroll) button is far too hypersensitive.
Summary: I needed a cheap replacement for my current mouse, I actually ordered 2 of them because my brother also wanted one. The mouse is good for it's price. It feels comfortable in the hand, both mouse button 4 and 5 are very easy to reach compared to my old mouse and it doesn't feel too cheap. The build in DPI switch is not in the way and doesn't trigger by accident like it did on my MX518. Cons: the software is very limited.
Summary: Loved this mouse from the moment I got it. Great for gaming and working. Great price too. But the laser died aged 10 months (the buttons and wheel still work though). I think mice should last about 2 years, not 10 months.
Summary: I have 2 of these mice on separate computers. After a few months, both had issues with the scroll wheel. When scrolling the wheel, only the outer rubber 'tyre' of the wheel moves and the actual wheel does not. It requires some sideways force to grip the wheel to make it turn. It was cheap though, so i'm not surprised they both had this fault.
Summary: The mouse has seem fairly regular use, but very little gaming, and it's now completely stopped working, no longer recognised by any of my computers. Until now (14 months or so), it's worked flawlessly so I'm sad to see it go. Pros - Nice feel in my hand (but this is subjective) - Quality appearance and reasonable weight. - Sensitive and responsive laser, with a perfectly usable DPI button to change the speed.
Summary: OK, as far as the build quality of the mouse is concerned, it is great! However, I would NOT recommend this mouse as a general, everyday browsing mouse. When you first turn on your laptop or PC it will automatically put you at the highest dpi setting, so your mouse cursor is extremely sensitive; as a result you have to click the dpi button twice to get to the average speed (normal) sensitive. After a while this gets really annoying!!!
