Summary: I originally jumped to get a mouse that would feel comfortable in my hand but the buttons and size of the mouse was quite bigger than anything else I've ever used. I ended up sending it back after about an hour or so of use, I opted instead for a Roccat Kone Pure which was a better couture for my hand size.
Summary: Bought this mouse in 2010, within 6 months of it going out of warranty the buttons started double-clicking on a single click and the scroll wheel started jumping when used (scroll down and it scrolls both down AND up). Did some looking and found out that this seems to be a pretty common issue with the mouse. Contacted Razer's support and they confirmed the issue, confirmed I was out of warranty and sent me on my way.
Summary: I've been using this mouse for a few months, so I think I have a good amount of experience to write a reasonable review. The mouse feels great - very comfortable, but the Razer Synapse software on the Mac is horrendous. Unfortunately it's the only way to use the extra buttons on the mouse; other tools like USB Overdrive say they can't work with the mouse. A few of the problems I've experienced: 1.
Summary: and it didn't pay off. Let me start by saying I was excited for this mouse. I initially took my time, read many product reviews, and watched a few online video unboxings and reviews. When it arrived it looked like it could be the one; however several things irritated me off the start. When placed in my hand it felt cheap, this could be due to it being a light-weight mouse; it simply felt like there was nothing inside it. The scroll wheel was not what I was use to.
Summary: The mouse works fine, and is a good mouse, on a personal note the "hump" of the mouse feels a bit forward, resting just under the knuckle of the forefinger but this is just something to get used to if you have previously used mouses with the "hump" farther back pressing into your palm. However, the Synapse system used to configure it was not working and contacting support only got me a copy pasted response with questions showing they did not read my issue at all.
Summary: I guess I should have tried this mouse out a bit more before I bought it. The supposedly ergonomic design does nothing but cause my hand pain for some reason. I am use to ambidextious mice so maybe that has something to do with it. I have rather large hands as well. I couldnt stand using palm or claw grip with it for long periods of time so Im currently just using it fingerstyle. Ive searched up how people generally tend to hold it and it just doesnt work for me.
Pros: Nice long cable. Looks nice and works fine.
Cons: Causes hand pain when using for a long period of time.
Summary: Pros -Decent price -Decent amount of customization Cons -SOFTWARE I used this mouse for about a week and returned it. One of my problems with it was that at the end of the day, it doesn't feel comfortable in my hand. Not their fault, I'm sure many others would disagree. My other gripe is that I must grip this mouse harder than most because I constantly click on accident. The left and right buttons depress extremely easily, and I don't like that.
Summary: I bought this for my Mac, so i can't comment on how nice it plays with Windows, but i think at least SOME of these complaints apply to the Windows version as well, since the Synapse software appears to be more or less the same across platforms. First of all, the hardware: It's pretty decent. I am not much for fancy mouses (i prefer simple, ambidextrous ones like what Apple make), but i don't have too many complaints about this one.
