Summary: At $50-$60 I expect them to last longer but it's such a great mouse that I put up with the high failure rate.
Pros: Smooth glide, comfortable shape and surface texture, cool looking, long USB cable, good customer support for replacements (see Cons).
Cons: Wheels fail far too often. I have been buying lots of these mice for years for our office and far too often in less than a year the wheel fails, becoming either jerky or unresponsive, or for the heavy-handed users the main button fails.
Summary: if you claw grip the mouse it may be uncomfortable as the back end is too long and bumps your palm, interrupting movement. if you palm the mouse it may be too small to rest your whole hand on, again, catching your skin under the mouse. I really regret this mouse.
Pros: looks nice, smooth navigation, long cord
Cons: mouse wheel bounces back on mine, and many other people have the same issue with this mouse. buttons on side feel cheap, low back end on the mouse catches the side of my hand under it all the time.. not comfortable in my hand.
Summary: I've been doing a lot of thinking and I've actually come up with a way for Razer to resolve this problem. They need to have a HARDWARE solution.. meaning having some kind of slider button on the botton of the mouse so in the event you encounter a game that swaps back the left/right mouse button and...
Pros: The mouse actually feels comfortable and the buttons are easy to press. It's rolls smoothly over my deskpad as well. Razer's driver for this mouse is option (not needed). So unless you change the dpi settings you don't really have to install the driver at all. You can let windows recognize and in...
Cons: Unfortunately, there is one serious problem with Razer's left-handed mice. They hardwire the left/mouse buttons at the factory, thinking it's what Left-Handed people want. That isn't what I want or desire.. so I swap them back with the software. The problem is some games will NOT recognize that c...
Pros: left handed ergos, smooth but grippy surface
Cons: could have used more buttons; for the price paid, should have been more customizable (like different weights). Would have liked more heft to the mouse. After slightly over 2 years of ownership (26 months to be exact), the mouse died (never abused). This was, of course, 2 months after their warran...
Summary: There are very few left-handed dedicated mice out there, even moreso for gaming. This is a nice mouse, don't get me wrong, but I ended up giving it just 3 stars because I can't quite get used to the very swooped shape that Razer makes all their mice.
Pros: Nice blue lighting, long cord, excellent software allowing plenty of adjustments
Cons: Very light, not weight adjustable, plasticky-feel, very forwardly sloped design may not suit some; also not many buttons as some of the other gaming mice designs
Summary: this thing is basically an ep33n meter. if you buy it thinking it'll make you better at games you are going to cry twice as hard when someone comes along and owns you with a microsoft optical.
Summary: The mouse had very good precision and worked great with no problems for a year. I've had this mouse for a year now and the left click button connection is not solid. At times, left click signal will toggle on and of while left click button is held down. Other than that it works fine.
Summary: Initial reaction to this mouse while unboxing was very positive. It's nicely finished in matt and high gloss black and feels good in the hand. All the buttons fall under comfortably your fingers and the whole thing has a feeling of genuine quality.
