Good stuff

Daniel K., Newegg
3 June 2014
  • Summary: Might not have the best specs, but for it's price (I got it for around $30 back in the day), it's very nice. Much more comfortable than the deathadder.
  • Pros: VERY comfortable for people with bigger hands (guy hands, wouldn't recommend for most girls). On the fly DPI settings is very convenient. Despite what people say, it's not that heavy at all; in terms of actual weight, Razer Deathadder is noticeably heavier. Flat surface scroll wheel makes it easy...
  • Cons: None. Although while I was using another mouse and had this in storage, the mousewheel somehow got sticky... rubber may have melted or deteriorated.

Good mouse for large hands

Sebastien S., Newegg
22 June 2013
  • Summary: Looks great - not too flashy and goes well alongside my sidewinder x4 keyboard.
  • Pros: Fairly good build quality overall (see cons), works well for gaming and general use. Software is decent. No noticeable jitter or anything.
  • Cons: The side buttons feel a little cheap when pressed - move a little side to side, instead of just in and out. This mouse is built for large hands - my hands are average size for a guy and I find it a little uncomfortable at times.

User Review

Griffen W., Newegg
26 January 2013
  • Summary: I mainly use this mouse for Dota 2, Skyrim, Arma 2, APB Reloaded, Fallout: New Vegas, Farcry 3, Just Cause 2, Saints Row: The Third, Tribes: Ascend, GTA:IV, Assassin's Creed 3, Dishonored, and other such games that require intensive clicking.
  • Pros: -Comfortable, fits my hand well -I've been using this mouse for almost 4 years now and I've had no problem with the scroll wheel "shredding" -the buttons remain tactile after heavy gaming usage -I've gone well over the "5 Million clicks guaranteed" statement that came with the mouse -On the fly d...
  • Cons: -Sidewinder button not customizable -very few buttons to program

So far so good

AdamC, Amazon
11 July 2012
  • Summary: This mouse has been great. The on the fly sensitivity changes are great and easy to use. The options are easy to adjust from the mouse's set-up. So far my only issue and its very minor is that if you are frantically clicking the left button occasionally it will squeak, but its hardly noticeable.

Excellent mouse

Sean M., Amazon
28 March 2012
  • Summary: Looking for a good alternative to the Razer mice without emptying your wallet? Here it is. I play PC games casually, nothing too intense. I wanted something between the $150, 40-button super gaming mice and the $5 wireless laptop mice.

Eventually it Falls Apart

Transgirl89, Amazon
21 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this mouse to use for everything, including heavy gaming. Its lasted a very long time, several years, and during this time I've enjoyed it. It isn't anything special, it does what it says it does and nothing else, and I've had no problems with it until now.

Works great for gaming

Mary L., Newegg
4 January 2012
  • Pros: Works really well for playing games through Steam. But, some buttons not programmable on a Mac.
  • Cons: None really, it would just be nice to be able to program all the buttons on a Mac.
