5 years old an still working great

Brandon M., Newegg
14 April 2013
  • Summary: I have never had a problem with this mouse, people say WiFi an Bluetooth mess with it even now it's sitting only 2 ft from my route and phone an never a problem. If Microsoft still manufactured it when this one finally dies i would buy one
  • Pros: the high dpi is great for multi-screen gaming with not a lot of room to move around, an the macro keys are great even for every day use
  • Cons: the Teflon pad on the mouse will ware a spot on your desk if no mouse pad is used (not a big deal if you ask me)

  • Summary: If like me, you are skeptical about getting this mouse, dont be, give it a try you may just fall in love with it. After having the Razer Diamondback 3G; Razer Lachesis, Razer Imperator and Razer Deathadder it is nice to know that there are still other companies that can compete and deliver quality...
  • Pros: This is a great mouse if you have gorilla mits like myself. The weight is perfect the button actuation is spot on. When your battery runs low the LCD flashes the battery icon with an exclamation mark as well as the light on the back of the mouse pulses amber. I keep trying to find things wrong wi...
  • Cons: Mouse wheel was the only con I could find it kinda has a feeling like it sticks sometimes especially if your trying to use your mouse wheel while clicking either your left or right mouse buttons.

Great Wireless Mouse

David H., Newegg
21 August 2011
  • Summary: Bought in October 2009 and still just as good as day 1. Game about everyday but use a cheap mouse for everyday things most of the time (both connected always).
  • Pros: Buttons, Software Customization, Rechargeable AA battery (easy cheap replacement), 3 On-the-fly DPI settings with Precision Booster so 6 possible DPI sensitivities, Works flawlessly, and looks great.
  • Cons: Pretty big and not claw grip friendly which may be an issue for some. Wheel tilt not recognized in games but can be customized to be keystrokes.

Excellent

Jonathon L., Newegg
7 August 2011
  • Summary: Many people complain about the metal scroll wheel, but I personally find that its very easy to use. Never slip on it, nice and grippy, easy to spin, etc.
  • Pros: -VERY comfortable -buttons have a nice click -DPI switching on the fly is great -scroll wheel is actually VERY good
  • Cons: -quick launch button on the top of the mouse cant be reprogrammed, and serves a pretty useless function (opens up "My Games" in windows). If you're like me and have game icons on your desktop, its the most useless thing.

A computer mouse that just kick the hell out of my cat!

Jean-Sebastien F., Newegg
24 July 2011
  • Summary: Although there is a few cons, it's a definite 5 egg.
  • Pros: Excellent DPI-Sensibility. I like that you can set 3 different DPI level, for different people to use. Magnetic charging, that is just amazing. Extremely fast response. As fast as my wired. Most buttons are just well positioned.
  • Cons: Macro button a bit too far. The gaming center button is also pretty much useless, wish it could be reprogrammable. And the charging cord is not auto retractable.

Decent Mouse

John E., Newegg
22 July 2011
  • Summary: performs as well as my Performance MX, except on absurd surfaces like glass and marble.
  • Pros: decently high DPI. has very fluid movement. programmable buttons. lasts several days without a charge, and the charging mechanism is quite nifty.
  • Cons: Cheap plastic mounts at the bottom. Usually those are rubber in other mice. Accidentally dropped and the plastic standoffs broke. I had to use epoxyto keep them in place. Blue Laser is unresponsive to glass and marble like optical mice. Large receiver. It's ok for a desktop mouse, can be annoying...
