Amazing Mouse!

Drew H., Newegg
15 May 2015
  • Summary: I may just buy another one when this one dies.
  • Pros: This mouse is amazing, it has great grip and a super comfortable shape and feel. The DPI button up top is really useful, and the buttons on the side are easy to use.
  • Cons: DPI light doesn't match logo. That's about it, no other complaints.

Buttons stuck

Anthony B., Newegg
31 March 2015
  • Pros: Well it is a decent mouse. The dpi button in the middle works well and you can go up or down without having to cycle through every setting, and the scroll wheel feels sturdy enough. Also looks pretty good. Braided cord is also a plus.
  • Cons: One of the side mouse buttons started getting stuck about 10 minutes after I started using it. Would be surprising from a $10 mouse but kind of disappointing in this one Also it would be nice if changing the color also changed the color of the dpi indicator lights on the side, but thats a minor t...

Very good for the price

Joel P., Newegg
26 January 2015
  • Summary: Seems like a good mouse for the price. Only time will tell if it stays this good.
  • Pros: Great feel and sensitivity. Nice that DPI can be adjusted both ways with a switch instead of cycling with a button, great for gaming. Software does not stay open constantly (at least it seems like it does not), instead saves settings to mouse itself, allowing for DPI, color, and macro settings be...
  • Cons: Back-lit logo pulsing, no way to make it stay on constantly or change pulsing pattern. HOWEVER using Ghost software it is easy to set one of the colors to black, doing so will turn off the back light.

Great mouse

Eve S., Newegg
6 December 2014
  • Summary: Highly recommended mouse, overall. This is my second one. DPI light colors don't match Ghost logo, but I don't spend much time staring at the mouse, so...
  • Pros: -Braided cord allows for easy movement, less drags/snags. -Durable hardware. I've dropped this a few times and it hasn't skipped a beat. -DPI button is easily accessible, as well as extra buttons on side. Well thought out design. I spend most of my time on DPI #2, rarely use #4. -Rubber textured ...
  • Cons: Ghost software takes some getting used to.

Worthless

Michael G., Newegg
30 November 2014
  • Summary: The scroll wheel was failing on my old mouse, so I got this one, it doesn't read at all on my Razer mouse pad, read for a few minutes on a sheet of paper, then stopped. Read for a little while on a vinyl bag, then stopped.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Doesn't track consistently on any surface.

good mouse but

Steven F., Newegg
7 October 2014
  • Summary: Again I have not installed the software. I don't need to have macro and micro settings. I'm on Windows 7 x64. And I love this mouse so far.
  • Pros: Love the look and feel. The weights make it heavy handed but smooth fluid movement. I bough this mouse because of the low price and weighted system. I am not disappointed. Everything works. DPI settings rock. Can't beat laser. Fits well in the hand. Very comfortable. The buttons, all of them. see...
  • Cons: The only Cons for me is the two side thumb buttons are way too sensitive. All you have to do is brush over them with the lightest touch and they activate. Needs more pressure to the buttons to ensure not accidentally clicking them. A lot of ppl are complaining about the software being buggy. I ha...

Good design but ghost software buggy!

Chris D., Newegg
27 July 2014
  • Summary: If you unplug & re-plug in the USB connection then mouse control returns (for awhile anyway). Going to check into a RMA with newegg.
  • Pros: Like the way it feels & it's laser is tops! Plenty of button & macro assignments & customizing available. DPI settings are changeable on the fly (4 settings) adjustable from 400 to 6000dpi. There is 4-way scrolling using center tilt-wheel.
  • Cons: Gigabyte Ghost software for this M8000X is buggy. When you setup (even the most basic) button assignments, the mouse tracking will sometimes freeze or cursor drift with little control. NOTE: there is very little detailed no tutorials or video for using M8000X ghost mouse software...very little.

I loooove it!

Leslie J., Newegg
23 January 2014
  • Summary: It's expensive, but will reward you for every penny spent.
  • Pros: Ho yes I love this mouse. I love it so much that I'm writing a sound about it that'll be released on Youtube in a short while. I've own quite a number of gaming mouse; Gigabyte Aivia Krypton, Logitech G5 & G3, Coolermaster Sentinel Advance II, Razer Death Adder. The Gigabyte GM-M8000X is the best...

An Inverted Glove

James G., Newegg
24 October 2013
  • Summary: Currently use it without a pad in a kitchen nook situation with a laptop, and it works just for me.
  • Pros: Love the weights. Like, all of them. Feels like I'm more involved in the moving of the mouse than just pawing at it.
  • Cons: Don't like the pulsing lights. The blue light is .. ok, but red, blue, or purple may not be your fantasy - I'd prefer a dull white or none, but meh - the lighting help when locating on the fly when gaming at night/dark room.
