Summary: I love this mouse. I've had it for a little under two years now, and it's been a very good mouse. Precise as I can tell, good flow, feels good in my hand (I guess I would say I have small hands). The only issue I had was after a year the left button double clicks nearly every time I click on something...and apparently this is a very common problem. I haven't tried fixing it, but I know there are youtube 'how to's'.
Summary: I actually decided on this mouse to replace my old first generation Deathadder. I actually was disappointed to find that it did not really conform to my hand very well. As some others have complained, if you are loyal to a Deathadder you might not like this mouse. I found the pinky indent to be somewhat uncomfortable for me (because of the positioning compared against my hand) and the thumb indent was too small for my thumb as well.
Summary: This is my first "gaming mouse" so I can't really compare it to others. I will say that it is comfortable and tracks well. The software is a bit wonky and doesn't switch profiles on programs as simply as you think it should. I've had to reset profiles a couple times to get it working correctly again, so not sure what causes that. Was an open box buy from Amazon Warehouse Deals and was in great condition.

Summary: Love this mouse. It is comfortable, fast, and holds up well. But I wonder why it has a separate program in my system tray than the Synapse Configurator that all my other Razer accessories use. Really wish they would fold that driver into the main program.
Summary: I have used the Copperhead, (2) Death Adders, (2) Lechisi, and now this Imperator. I have had it almost a year now and I can say that this is the best mouse out of all the ones I have owned. Razer finally fixed their driver issues and this one has been rock solid. I recommend this to any FPS player. The extra buttons work great for a quick melee or switching to special weapons in a hurry.

Summary: What I like most about this mouse is the software that it comes with. You can customize the setting to fit your gaming preferences. The mouse feels pretty on my palm and my thumb. The only downside was the cord. The cord does get tangled and messy.
Summary: Well I have to say this mouse is great considering all the features it has. 6400 dpi maximum output, optical and laser sensors, nice lit up scroll-wheel which has a solid feeling to it, and the button for switching between sensitivity gives you 5 different dpi settings which is awesome (especially if you're playing a game such as Battlefield 3 where if you switch from playing on foot to going in a tank, the in-game sensitivity changes).
Summary: I've found this mouse to be incredible for all types of gaming functions. the High DPI allows a better usage of raw imput from the mouse, and the adjustable macro positions are very comfortable. The only downside is that the DPI adjusting buttons are a bit awkward to reach; use your index finger to adjust. Overall, I would reccomend this product to any gamer who wants quality equipment, and a livable price.
