Best mouse at a great price!

Summary: Don't be fooled by the Chinese characters on the bottom of the mouse, it'll still work like a champ on your American computer!
Pros: I used a MS Intellimouse Explorer for so long that my hand grew into the ergonomic shape of the mouse, but since my last one died a few years ago, I was never able to find another one for even close to a reasonable price. Finally, I stumbled across the mouse you are looking at now, and let me tel...
Cons: The rear thumb button isn't as rigid as previous models, so it's easy to accidentally hit it when you're trying to simply move the mouse. It's easy to avoid by, well, just holding the mouse normally. A minor complaint.
Pros: Over the past 8 or so years, I have had 3 of these mouses. None of them have broken on their own - One broke during a move and my last one got knocked off the table onto the wood floor by the wife. This is an excellent mouse. It has a great response time and is large enough to fit my hand.
Summary: No need to spend 80 bucks on a 5600dpi mouse, just a way for a company to make more money, keep it simple. Get hyperglide mouse feet their great makes this mouse unbeatable.
Pros: Real gamers use this mouse. Remake of the super popular ms 1.1 first true gaming mouse which many pro gamers still use today. Most comfortable mouse you will ever yse, 450fps is for the champions. Once ms always ms.
Cons: Side button is a little lose but not a problem it works
Summary: Great for WoW players who need a quick 2 extra buttons, but not the 30,000 some other mice have.
Pros: This seriously is the best mouse ever made. I've been using this exact mouse for 7 years now. They're cheap, reliable, and extra 2 side buttons make a nice addition for gaming. No one should ever pay more than $30 for a mouse. Period. (Even though I think I did when this mouse first came out haha...
Summary: I hope this mouse stays in production FOREVER.
Pros: The feel of this mouse, combined with the two side buttons and a clicking scroll wheel makes this the best gaming mouse ever. I've owned three of these guys since 2004 and I purchased a few extra for future gaming PCs. You will not regret this purchase.
Cons: The scroll wheel will get a little lose over a few years of use. Not a big problem, it takes years for this to happen mind you, but it's the only con I can think of.
