Difficult installation and questionable ergonomics

S. Galligan, Amazon
29 July 2010
  • 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.

2 Broken Habu's in 2 years

Jordan B., Newegg
1 June 2009
  • Pros: Great mouse for FPS. The sensitivity is amazing and it fits in my hand very nicely.
  • Cons: Ive had 2 of these mouses in the last 2 years and they both break after i have had them for about 1 year. The issue i have had with both of them is that the mouse becomes randomly disconnected from my PC for about 2-4 secs and then reconnects. Some times i would get multiple errors like this in a...

nice looking junk

Nicholas E., Newegg
2 March 2009
  • Summary: One of the most expensive mice I have ever bought and without question the worst.
  • Pros: Looks pretty neato with the blue LED’s, very comfortable to hold in either hand, very responsive, the extra buttons are well-placed and it has lots of configuration options.
  • Cons: Buggy firmware, buggy software, feels cheap, USB connector does not properly fit (loose). Age of Empires 3 randomly crashes when I use it…Sometimes it loses its connection and has to be unplugged and plugged back in again to work.

Please save yourself from the trouble

Mike p., Newegg
7 January 2009
  • Summary: I've had this mouse for over a year and I have had a bunch of trouble with this mouse. the mouse jumping to different profiles. all the settings being reset to default factory for no apparent reason.
  • Pros: interchangeable thumb-buttons nice feel to the mouse lights up to show if its on which helps troubleshooting 4th con below.
  • Cons: very poor product support by both razer and microsoft. can be very difficult for people to try and upgrade the firmware/drivers. config software very unintuitive you have a 50/50 chance that the mouse will be in mouse mode (as opposed to firmware upgrade mode)when you start up your computer, if i...

Horrible Cord on a decent mouse

Ryan A., Newegg
31 December 2008
  • Pros: Shape and feel are perfect, position of buttons perfect.
  • Cons: The cord comes packaged perfectly kinked at the base of the mouse ruining every single one that I've recieved (two so far). I will never buy this mouse again and believe that whoever designed the packaging should be fired.

User Review

Richard A., Newegg
27 December 2008
  • Summary: This is a bad product when compared to other that razer has, When it works the mouse is wonderful though.
  • Pros: Nice DPI Switching Abilities Blue Glow Light to Mid Weight
  • Cons: The cording in the front of the mouse isn't very good, I paid for one of these a while back and have returned it directly to Microsoft a total of Six times now. Of course all of them where free but still I've gone through 6 mice with the same problem on all, horrible cording.

Best mouse ever that doesn't work

Brian S., Newegg
23 November 2008
  • Summary: If it worked correctly, I'd buy five of them for when they wear out. Hopefully Microsoft/Razer will try again with this design someday, and get it right.
  • Pros: Simply the best feel and design for a crossover work + play mouse. Perfect button resistance and "click."
  • Cons: Razer software is terrible, and unavoidable -- you can't access the extra buttons without it. Double-click function is implemented incorrectly (clicks on press and release of mouse button) so you can't use it for double-click + drag. After 6 months of use, the scroll wheel is starting to fail -- ...

pass on it

Robert M., Newegg
16 September 2008
  • Summary: waste of money - i went back to my optical - it may not be pixel to pixel accurate but at least it feels more overall accurate to speed in which the pointer moves. If i were to recommend a mouse however - i would choose a laser mouse with NO dpi switch to it.
  • Pros: i may need a minute
  • Cons: sure it may be more accurate when moving from pixel to pixel but the speed it which it moves various - i purchased this mouse in hopes of being able to aim better in counter-strike but its hopeless - all the different speed settings and the 2000 dpi is worthless!!! also the bottom plastic of the ...
