Summary: It's not an awful mouse, really. I give it 2 stars simply because it's both less comfortable and less accurate than a $13 Logitech from Wal-Mart.

Summary: I bought this to replace my old Sidewinder mouse. To my disappointment, this version feels very cheaply made compared to my old one. It is all plastic, and there is no weight adjustment. You know how there are special, hamstrung versions of GPUs made to sell at dept stores like Wal-Mart?
Summary: I have big hands, large enough to palm an official size and weight NBA basketball. This mouse doesn't fit well with my hand. The buttons take a lot of pressure to press down in comparison to similarly priced units.

Summary: This mouse is responsive as any other gaming mouse on the market but you have to be a mouse palmer with big hands. This thing is like pushing around a brick, it's huge. The verticle side buttons are awesome but can sometimes be hit by accident when lifting the mouse to reposition it.
Summary: The mouse wheel for this mouse started sticking. Also, the three dpi settings buttons in the middle were too easy to hit accidentally while using the mouse, so I ended up setting all three to the same dpi.
