Summary: I bought this mouse to replace a Logitech G500. I chose it primarily because it was less than half the cost and I'm tired of shelling out 80-160 dollars a year for new gaming mice when I wear through them. Though I haven't been using this mouse long I have had some issues with it. Firstly, the drivers that came on the disk were non functional in Windows 7 64bit(the mouse wouldn't work when computer woke up from sleep, then not after restart).
Summary: Tis is the most comfortable and excellent mouse I've ever used, while it worked. After a year (exactly when the normal warranty expires) it starts sending random clicks. Google for it, it is a well-known physical problem with the mouse. Basically, it's badly made and they are not going to fix it, so if you buy one now, enjoy the honeymoon period before it starts playing up and you have to buy another one.
Summary: I have now had the misfortune of owning 2 of these mice, both of which suffered from the dreaded click but no actual response issue and then later one of them died and would not move the cursor around the screen even though the rest of the mouse worked, very very poor build quality and will avoid both razor and Microsoft in the future for this reason. Both parties will pass you from one back to the other also if you try and resolve the issues.
Summary: I'm sorry guys, I really really really wanted to like this mouse. Looks great, feels great on the hand, and moves well... if only a mouse could be judged on that alone. 1. First problem is that the driver is notoriously finnicky to install. Ok, installation is fine, but making the driver read the mouse can be tricky. Don't get confused between Windows reading the mouse and the actual driver (to get full 2000dpi).
