Summary: This otherwise fantastic mouse has a serious flaw: the rubber mouse wheel turns to goo after around 12 months and became virtually unusable by month 24. Also, right out of the box the indexing notches for the mouse wheel were not very firm and before too long the wheel started slipping between notches, essentially turning on its own. On the plus side the mouse is easy to disassemble and clean.
Disappointment - but maybe I should have been more specific when shopping.

Summary: Does not have optional weight compartment like my old sidewinder mouse, nor are the feet replaceable (that I can discern). Might be solid for a new gamer, but it's too light-weight for me. The inability to replace the feet when they wear out doesn't bode well for longevity. It also requires software install (does so automatically when you plug it in) - and I don't like junking up my system with more applications that have to run all the time, especially for a product as...
Bought this in 2010 and still works incredibly well.

Summary: Bought this in 2010 and still works incredibly well. I'm really glad I bought it when I did, it appears to have TRIPLED in price! It does everything I want it to do and slightly more. I hardly every change my sensitivity but i'm glad to have the red buttons that allows me to do that when I play games which isn't too often.
Size is nice, otherwise a terrible mouse at this price.

Summary: I bought this mouse a while ago to backup a Logitech G9. The G9 finally died after over 4 years and I hooked this mouse up. I was excited to use it as I have a Sidewinder X6 keyboard which I really like (despite its lack of mechanical keys). Here's the good news. The mouse is big and fits bigger hands well. My hands are not huge but they are larger than average and its fits me naturally. I expect smaller hands would be very uncomfortable though.
Summary: Very underrated piece of equipment. While not perfect, has fit my needs for a year and a half, only basic maintenance needed. Wiped off as normal, stripped down to components and thoroughly cleaned only once in 1.5 years. Hard pressed to beat this mouse for a reasonable price vs your needs.
