Summary: When I bought this, I was still searching for a proper replacement for my old Intellimouse (which I regret not buying about 50 of back in 2009.) Even the MS ones with the same form factor (Comfort Mouse 6000 I think it was) were cheap pieces of garbage in comparison.
Pros: Still going strong after 18 months of heavy use.
Summary: I have had this mouse for almost 3 years now and it is still running strong. All buttons still work along with the scroll wheel. I use the DPI switching often, i use the low setting for most gamin situations and then turn it up for general usage.
Pros: Long life, fits nicely in hand, has DPI switching on the fly, side buttons are programmable and have worked in every game I have ever remapped buttons for.
Cons: I have had trouble with various mouse pads with this mouse, but they were not very good to begin with, they were slightly reflective (which was the issue) pure black fabric works fine as would any color.
Summary: If you want top of the line, buy top of the line. For the guy who games 100+ hours a week, shell out the extra money for a high end logitech or razer. For everyone else who enjoys moderate gaming, this mouse is perfect. I bought this in 2013 and it's still going strong.
Summary: I am not a hardcore gamer despite the fact I have a hardcore gaming rig. I only ever game when I get a chance, so this mouse has been primarily work focused. It took me awhile to migrate from the traditional mouse architectural to this one.However it is a worthwhile investment if you are looking for...
Summary: The main reason I chose this mouse was for the above average size because I have large hands/grip size. Overall, I am very happy with what I got for the price. It does everything well and feels like it will last a long time.
Pros: Plug & Play Good driver program, easy to use Smooth, accurate DPI settings Mouse & cord solid construction, well built
Cons: I don't love the shape of it compared to other mice I have owned even after I got really used to it. I feel the right side doesn't let your ring finger rest comfortably.
Summary: As I was building a new gaming PC, on a budget. I decided this mouse, was just right for my needs (considering I was using a very standard dell mouse before) This mouse does everything I need, its super sensitive (in a good way) very nice gliding notion on the mouse mat.
