Promising product marred by flaws and poor quality.

Lando242, Amazon
17 August 2010
  • Summary: I picked up this mouse about 18 months ago for $45 after my elderly Microsoft IntelliMouse (old ball type) finally gave up the ghost. I respected the build quality of MS peripherals (I've had a few of their keyboards, mice and even a joystick or two) and have always been able to run their stuff hard...

Cord failure

CHUS01 Fan, Amazon
14 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought a wired mouse because I wanted it to just work. Now two years later the cord is failing. It cuts in and out, and wiggling it affects it. What a waste of money. Not what I expected in a high end gaming mouse.

Little big for large hands

Anonymous, Newegg
12 May 2009
  • Summary: Erogonomic????? Don't think so.
  • Pros: Blue light is a plus to find your computer when the lights are off. Nice right/left button feature. Not something to right home to mom about though. Hurts my wrist after a couple hours of using it. Suggestion, check it out first in the store before buying it....
  • Cons: Not comfortable. TOOO BIG, even for large hands....

User Review

Paul M., Newegg
5 May 2009
  • Summary: For this kind of money buy a real razer or a logitech.
  • Pros: Changeable thumbplate. Lightweight. Looks pretty.
  • Cons: Changeable thumplate feels loose. No weight tray. No DPI selection indicator on mouse. Short cord. Feels cheap, like it will fall apart. Followed all driver installation instructions, still failing to get the on screen sensitivity to appear. Any changes to the mouse config require you to hit the ...

Kinda Sucks

DAVID H., Newegg
21 April 2009
  • Summary: Bought 3 for a CAD/CAI office, we're using 2. 0 of the 2 users prefer the mouse to the MX518 they had, one Habu's still in a box in the corner. I haven't gamed with this. I game with a G9, love it, and wouldn't even consider swapping this mouse in for it.
  • Pros: Silent scroll wheel, handsome body, switchout side buttons are a great feature since accidentally hitting the forward button usually doesn't do anything, but hitting the back button accidentally can hold things up for a second.
  • Cons: (Bought Multiple) It seems to be the wrong kind of big; it doesn't sit right. The sound of the buttons on one is deep and quiet, then the other is mid-range and loud. The lights are patchy like yo mama's beard. The response feels cheap compared to an MX518 or a G9. The response feels almost wirel...

DOA & Scratches on it

Anonymous, Newegg
6 April 2009
  • Summary: If it wasn't for a DOA mouse. It woulda been pretty cool but too bad things happen.
  • Pros: Very cool color blue on the mouse. Pretty nice to grip. feels good in your hand. and moves easily
  • Cons: I Couldn't get it to work. It came DOA. only the blue lights would turn on when you plugged it in. I Couldn't get it to work w/ the software or anything. It's going back to New-Egg and I'm gonna get the lachesi I shoulda got. Oh also It had scratches on it EVEN in the plastic box it was in. I'm n...

Looks and feels nice but...

Tan N., Newegg
18 March 2009
  • Summary: If you have Vista 64-bit OS avoid this mouse save the headache. I don't know how it is running on other OS's but I'm not going to change my OS to get this mouse to work. Support for this mouse is bad which is a shame cause the actual mouse itself feels solid.
  • Pros: The mouse feels great in your hands and it looks very nice. The weight and how it glides feels very natual!
  • Cons: This mouse has NO support for people using Vista 64 bit OS. It is even stated in Razer's support page and Microsoft's website doesnt offer much help either. The software that comes with the product did not recognized the mouse at all (though I can still use it) and I couldnt use the profile featu...

Nice while it lasted

Jacob W., Newegg
10 March 2009
  • Summary: I'm in the market for a new mouse finally... been using an old optical since it broke... decided to stop in and mention my experience with this mouse... as I skip over and buy one made by someone else.
  • Pros: Looks nice, modified buttons, fit well in my hand
  • Cons: This happened a long time ago... just now getting around to writing the review. I received this mouse as a Christmas gift in 07' and 2 months later the following February the wire shorted out. I stuffed it in a box to be forgotten.

I wanted to love it...

Justin M., Newegg
8 February 2009
  • Summary: Being on the 4th mouse I think it's clear I WANTED this relationship to work. The blue glow matches my tablet, keyboard, and case LEDs. But without fail within 4-6 months every one of them died.
  • Pros: Color, on-the-fly sensitivity changes, great while it works...
  • Cons: I'm on my 4th habu mouse and they all became useless for the same problem. The left click stops working correctly. You click on an icon on your desk and hold it to move and it rapidly off-and-on recognizes the held click and you end up with a program opened 30 times. I use it primarily for image ...

A great mouse, but stops there

Christopher H., Newegg
29 December 2008
  • Summary: Unfortunately, without the software, it performs just as well as any other mouse, which makes it quite expensive for a mouse. I would recommend purchasing a different mouse.
  • Pros: - Great control. - Fits the shape of my hand perfectly. - Teflon feet make it slide across my mousepad wonderfully.
  • Cons: -Software. I found the software to literally be UNINSTALLABLE. I tried for about three hours before I gave up and accepted it as just a mouse.
