Good for most people

Jeffrey R., Newegg
16 November 2014
  • Summary: It's a pretty simple mouse overall, and good for what I wanted (more buttons but still inexpensive), with decent macro software. The fact that it doesn't work at all with a good KVM won't bother most people, but it did make me lower my rating for this review.
  • Pros: Good weight and contour...fits my hand well. Sensor seems very good, and able to track very high DPI, and the software lets you adjust the tracking with very fine control. Software able to do some very complex config, including detailed macros and 3 profiles that can be switched using a button on...
  • Cons: Right-handed only (not a problem for me). Software not included in the box, and no info in the box on where to download (just find the mouse on the Gigabyte site). Software is not very intuitive. Again, it does the job, but some things took me a while to figure out. Does not work with my ioGear K...

Great Mouse, Okay Software

Justin K., Newegg
8 May 2014
  • Summary: Overall, I love the mouse; I just wish the Ghost software was better.
  • Pros: - Very comfortable fit for my large hands - Love the gripping on the sides - The non-slick coating is a huge bonus and leaves a great texture
  • Cons: The Ghost software for the mouse could be better. The UI is ugly and dated (think Doom-era games), and the copy/paste functions don't work properly under certain circumstances. I use this mouse at work where I'm a graphic designer and the copy/paste function is very important. But when it comes t...

User Review

Rachel L., Newegg
25 November 2013
  • Summary: Only has 3 programmable DPI positions. but I knew about that.
  • Pros: Great movement. Good for gaming and normal applications
  • Cons: Sometimes the mouse pointer will stop moving on the screen and "hang" there for a few seconds until I remove the mouse from the pad, clean it, and then place it back down. This only happens on highest DPI settings.

Great mouse, some linux issues.

Mark G., Newegg
20 September 2013
  • Pros: I bought this mouse as a replacement for the now unavailable MX518. It does the job admirably. It feels very smooth and works as well for twitch FPS gaming as it does for general desktop and image editing tasks. The mouse is light, but it does not feel flimsy and so far the rubber coatings have h...
  • Cons: The only downside to this mouse is the annoyingly bright LEDs that constantly blinks in an attention grabbing manner. The software drivers that come with the mouse do not work on linux. So if you're a linux user you'll not be able to turn off the blinking LEDs short of physically taking the mouse...

Excellent value for money

James wallis, Amazon
26 November 2014
  • Summary: Great features like being able to change the colours on the mouse (Blue, Red, Green, although it doesn't have the light blue that matches the one on my Gigabyte Force K7 Stealth keyboard, which isn't a problem but would be nice), and the ability to change between three DPI settings - usually keep it...

Good, solid mouse

  • Summary: Works great. The central LED can be a bit bright and distracting but can't fault the build quality and functionality.

Love it

Jessie, memoryexpress.com
24 June 2014
  • Summary: Got this mouse after a bit of online review comparing between different brands. Wanted something for casual to moderate gaming that would also serve well as a general PC mouse and it suits these uses perfectly for me.
  • Pros: Good size and feel. This is how a mouse should feel, this is how I remember a mouse used to feel. Most of todays computer mice are far too small, slippery, and flimsy where this one still has a good size, ergonomic feel, and nice weight to it.
  • Cons: None really for the way I'm using it, maybe price. It's a very nice mouse but for the price it feels like the build quality / plastic could have been of a higher standard - but they are certainly not a problem either.

Worked good till it died

Leo, memoryexpress.com
27 December 2013
  • Summary: From my understanding my mouse lasted longer than most other users. Since this mouse I've used others, and they just don't compare in terms of precision.
  • Pros: Amazing precision, laser sensor beats optical mice into dust Agronomic design Perfect size, fits well into my large hands as well as into my wife's tiny hands Balanced weight may be a bit on the heavy side Tilt wheel allows to scroll back and front in movie player, move left and right in browser ...
  • Cons: The software is LAME. Hated it. It lasted 1 year and 2 months until right click started giving up on longer presses (big issue for people who use gestures while browsing)
