Nice mouse, good heavy feel in your hand

R. Burk, Amazon
25 October 2014
  • Summary: Nice mouse, good heavy feel in your hand. A bit on the large side, but it's been working for years and years.

Good mouse, especially because it's cheaper than the higher end ones

Nick Fox, Amazon
11 December 2013
  • Summary: The side buttons easily reached by your thumb, nice form factor if that's your thing. Adjustable weight. On the fly sensitivity switching (say if you play FPS and you use high sensitivity but want to switch to a very low sensitivity for precision shots)

Great Mouse

Jamieson P., Newegg
23 January 2013
  • Summary: I did buy this from new egg. But got lucky and got an open box, that looks like it never was opened. Love getting those. And Newegg service was top notch as always.
  • Pros: Compatibility. It's MS so it just works with Windows. No Driver issues, no software issues it just works.
  • Cons: Center scroll wheel. Being metal seemed great to me at first then I realized I had little traction if my hands got sweaty. This is why it gets 4 Eggs. My index finger slid off the scroll every now and then. Not always mind you, but it appears this was a looks over function decision.

Quality mouse with a good design.

Animus, Amazon
10 February 2012
  • Summary: Time of ownership: 2 years Overview: The ergonomic design of this mouse, along with the added customization from changeable DPI settings and a weighty feel make this device a decent buy for 'palm' grip gamers in the market for a new mouse.

Best mouse available, but not perfect.

Jeff, Amazon
22 September 2011
  • Summary: I've owned two of these mice and they work extremely well. The only reason I had to replace my first one is the mouse's only real fault: the rubber sides of the mouse get filthy after a while.

Well built Mouse

timmcgee3, Amazon
15 April 2011
  • Summary: I really like this mouse and have nothing really bad to say about, just know that it is USB not wireless. Weight adjustment and foot adjustment are nice options...DPI switch works well, although the placement of this button could be better....plus it fits in my hand good and doesn't cramp my wrist.

Susan D., Newegg
23 October 2010
  • Summary: I will be keeping this as a backup mouse, because I don't have the patience to get used to how odd this thing feels. Otherwise a great mouse, just give it some time.
  • Pros: Really nice scroll wheel Looks nice from the top Extra buttons are helpful Works like a mouse is supposed to. Comes with a weight for the mouse AND the wire so that you can keep the slack in place.
  • Cons: All of the problems this mouse has would probably no longer be a problem after a month or so of using it. Its a little big in the back compared to other mice, so it just feels odd. The feet of the mouse make it feel awkward when using a fabric mouse pad, you will need a hard surface or a flat pla...

steven f., Newegg
22 October 2010
  • Summary: The mouse comes with extra sliders that attach to the bottom of the mouse that have added a lot of durability to it and without the added weight pieces i the mouse felt too light for me and i probably would have returned it if this wasn't a really easy fix with the changeable weights.
  • Pros: i really do like this mouse. the extra two buttons on the side are great for almost any game your going to play with this, and i haven't found a surface that yet that this thing doesn't work on (using on a spotted off white, plastic table atm).
  • Cons: if you absolutely hate bulky mice, you may want to stay away. i wasn't to convinced and first and it felt awkward for me at first, but i quickly got used to the size of it. whatever this page says about extra buttons there are really only two that you will really use.

Nice Mouse

Michael C., Newegg
5 October 2010
  • Summary: Kinda big. When I stopped using it, switching back to my old mouse felt a little weird, not uncomfortable on its own though. LED screen is absolutely pointless. Rather subtle logo button opens up games folder, which I never use.
  • Pros: It does what it's supposed to for the most part. dpi adjusting works pretty well, adjustable weights pretty cool too.
  • Cons: After a week or so, the right mouse button started going haywire. Stopped using it. Plugged it back in a week later to see if it had magically fixed itself. Happened to check the mouse configuration and see that the right click had been replaced by some weird macro, I guess I changed it without r...

worth to buy at the shell shocker price

Minh-Tri N., Newegg
28 September 2010
  • Pros: bought it on a shell shocker deal. Mouse has a lot of nice features.
  • Cons: awkward to hold. sometimes very hard to properly track a target in a straight line, because I can't the shape prevents me from moving fluently.
