Summary: I have always been a fan of Razer products and thought this would be a nice replacement for my Copperhead that I wore out. When the product arrived, I heard a slight rattle coming from inside of the mouse. Upon opening the case I discovered a single loose screw.
Summary: The scroll wheel moved out of place 2 weeks after purchase. It was not turning correctly, like it had come off it's track. It took 6 weeks to get an RMA for an exchange, I did not feel like waiting a total of 2 months to replace it, so I purchased from a competitor.
Summary: When the mouse works, it works well. However it seemed like the mouse would go crazy and stop working right in the heat of gaming. Because of this, I returned it. I wouldn't recommend buying this unless you have incredible amounts of patience.
Summary: Updated 01/18/2013: 3.03 drivers (new Windows 8 drivers) crash in the middle of play just like 3.01. This mouse operates more smoothly with the 3.0 drivers. However the mouse just dies in the middle of operations and games.
Excerpt: This mouse is wonderful I'm sure for gaming, but its also truly fantastic for UI programming. I function with a number of application that demand a lot of mouse control for very exact UI style. Its nice to have a mouse that is really sensitive down to the pixel level when drawing a UI element.
Summary: When this mouse works, it is amazing...however mine has had alot of problems with it freezing and becoming unresponsive. To solve this problem I have to unplug it and then plug it back into its USB connector. Pretty annoying.
Excerpt: Excellent design, very good color scheme, related to my old Diamondback Plasma shape/feel, high DPI. OK, let me preface this with: I owned and LOVED the Diamondback plasma LE for 5+ years prior to a dying right button forced me to "upgrade.
Excerpt: Storing profiles onboard in the mouse is good.The capability to turn on/off the LED's in the mouse is interesting. I encountered continual occurences of the mouse locking up and not moving for a second or two.
Summary: Mouse has good precision but bad ergonomics - great precision - great looks especially multi color LCD's - Extremly poor ergonomics I rate this a 5 on all aspects except the ergonomics. You simply cant find a good way to hold this mouse.
