Summary: I've had this mouse for several months now. I bought it because it does feel nice in the hand, and the customizable color pairs nicely with my Logitech G510 Keyboard. BUT it has problems. It collects dust around the sensor quite easily, so the cursor will start to jump around until you wipe it off.
Major Case of 'Fashion over Function' Lefty's give this a pass.

Summary: This is my third Razer mouse purchase. The first was the left-handed Deathadder, then I bought the little Orochi for my laptop bag, and now I have purchased the Razer Lachesis. Each mouse I have purchased from Razer has had its own set of issues.
Summary: I've had an original Lachesis for a number of years and it served me pretty well - after a few firmware and driver upgrades, that is. This current mouse seems no different - on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit the mouse cursor simply stops dead in its tracks once every few hours or so.
Summary: First off, let me say that I really liked this mouse but it just wasn't for me (I used it solidly for a couple of weeks). Coming from a Logitech G5, my hand has changed over the last 4 years and I was looking for a mouse that would accommodate a claw/fingertip grip.
Summary: This is basically a great mouse. It worked very well for nearly two months. The DPI switch is great for when you have some older games where you need a lower DPI resolution. But here comes the big let-down: The (rubber) mouse wheel started slipping in under two months of use (which means it slips...
Summary: This mouse has great DPI. Well, also the right side-buttons are easier to press than my Razer Diamondback's. Also the sensitivity change buttons below the mouse wheel are nice. Razer's drivers and software are both very buggy, and as far as I can tell they always have been.
Summary: The mice likes to jump when it wants to. The best surface to use is something that is white. I used a black surface and blue surface mousepad, both pads would cause the mouse to jump randomly at times. I used a white sheet of paper and the mouse doesn't jump at all.
Summary: 2 stars are because, when it actually worked, it was a great mouse. Reminded me quite a bit of my old Copperhead from years ago. Unfortunately, mine had a very serious fault in that it would completely freeze up with no way to fix it except unplugging & plugging it back in, obviously not very useful...
Excerpt: The mouse itself feels good, and the buttons all operate effectively and really feel appropriate. The wheel moves effectively and I only have difficulty finding to the farthest side button on my pinky finger side.The lighting feature is fairly cool - you can set a diverse color for the logo and...
Excerpt: - hassle-free buttons for switching dpi- decent software for customizing buttons- up to 4000 dpi (if you'll ever need to have that)- looks excellent - will randomly lock up and only be able to move left and right, not up and down (this is specially annoying when gaming).
