Ramdonly stops working

IVAN C., Newegg
8 February 2015
  • Pros: - Nice look. - Good DPI. - Ergonomic.
  • Cons: - Often this mouse stops working. You can move the cursor but the clicks don't work, and that's is very annoying. Razer is a expensive brand and i expect the best quality possible.

Solid

Samuel D., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Summary: All-in-all, there's a lot of people happy with theirs posting reviews so if the missing features aren't a problem, I don't know how likely it is you'll actually run into the problem I've experienced.
  • Pros: When fully functional, the mouse did a pretty good job. It's not perfect, but I wouldn't expect that. It jumps a little sometimes, but it's usually fixed by cleaning the surface or the lens. Anything else just needed getting used to. I like the scroll wheel. It's one of those one's that's clicky ...
  • Cons: The only real con is that the left click has become busted. It very often clicks a second time when I click once. I play a lot of Hearthstone and nervously click at the dirt or intractable objects during the other player's turn. So that might have made matters worse. Looking online though, I at l...

Good, but didn't last

Logan J., Newegg
4 December 2014
  • Summary: The blue light is pretty. It matches my saitek light up keyboard. But functionally it does very little.
  • Pros: Weight of it is nice. It slides nicely on the mouse pad and the fabric covered cord is a plus. The cable length is more than adequate for all but the largest of desks.
  • Cons: The mouse wheel has always been a trouble spot on this mouse. I found it hard to spin, and hard to click from day one. Eventually, after roughly 8 months, it now clicks far, far too easily. Simply scrolling the wheel will usually (but not always) cause it to click. Very annoying. I have never had...

Great mouse with a serious flaw

Joshua S., Newegg
3 December 2014
  • Summary: I love everything about this mouse, but it just doesn't seem like the build quality is very good, considering how many people I've seen having the same issue – and apparently this issue with the double-clicking has been ongoing throughout several models for years.
  • Pros: Excellent ergonomics, precise sensor, and extremely responsive. Looks nice.
  • Cons: After about 9 or 10 months of use, my mouse started double-clicking when I single-clicked. It got so bad by month 12 that I had to contact Razer, and I still don't know if they're going to replace the mouse. After googling the issue, apparently it's an extremely common problem.

Overrated, overmarketed

Sam S., Newegg
6 July 2014
  • Summary: The grips texture is too dense, so you're just resting your thumb/ring/pinky on a bunch of little rubber dots that don't even stick out more than .1mm. If they were spaced better, or used a stickier rubber, it would help the mobility of the mouse.
  • Pros: Flawless sensor, very functional/comfortable scroll wheel/clicks, solid switches with great feel, build quality is top notch, looks beautiful
  • Cons: Side grips are 100% useless after 1 day of use (I have semi-sweaty hands, but not over the top). Not good for EVERY grip. Mainly designed for palm grip. Loud switches (not a big con). So heavy that it is hard to comfortably lift (and worthless side grips don't help).

good but loud

Jessica K., Newegg
14 June 2014
  • Summary: I've used it every day for 6 months and have not experienced any problems yet. It was on sale for a little less than it is now, but I think it's still a little overpriced, probably because of the brand. I would rate this at 5 stars if the mouse was alot quieter!
  • Pros: nice size even for female hands lights are nice, not annoying rubber grip on sides software lets you adjust the mouse to your needs mousewheel requires just the right amount of effort to scroll (not too much, not too little)
  • Cons: loud software needs updated frequently and makes the mouse act weird sometimes not sure worth the price color isn't adjustable from green (but I knew that ahead of time)

User Review

Tyler_N, NCIX.com
24 May 2014
  • Summary: Bought this on sale and I'm glad I did. Not 1 year into use the middle mouse click has ceased to function. This has been the third and LAST Razer mouse that will do this to me. My MX518 had performed for years without any sort of button malfunctions, yet razer mice seem to not be able to be used...
  • Pros: Nice design, Comfortable
  • Cons: Terrible internal quality, Requires software to edit in depth/macros

Squeaky wheel

Michael C., Newegg
15 May 2014
  • Pros: The mouse feels like it has a solid build and the rubber on the sides makes for a nice gripping surface. The buttons are quite clicky for multiple click action moments.
  • Cons: The one thing I failed to realize when buying this mouse was the actual size of it. I have smaller hands and I find myself clawing the mouse as apposed to palming it. Also after about 4 months of continuous use the wheel has started this very annoying squeak when lightly rolling the wheel. When t...

Great Mouse, Bad Techs

Justin E., Newegg
5 April 2014
  • Summary: I like this mouse a lot, it is serving me well so long as I do not play Eve using it. I am just disappointed in the "specialists" I have been working with. This experience will not stop me from using future Razer products, but it will make me wary of them.
  • Pros: Size of the mouse is great for a big hand, wish it was a little bigger. Love the length and durability of the USB cable Looks pretty Very responsive I love that I can change what the mouse buttons do with Synapse The pulsing green light is fun
  • Cons: My mouse has a strange problem that I believe has something to do with the drivers. When I first load into Windows 7 I cannot click on the start bar until I press ctl+alt+del and choose cancel. It also causes a strange problem when playing Eve where my keyboard shortcuts do not work, including ES...
