Summary: After using this product for 6 months I can say two things: ----(1) Works great for what was designed, good, comfortable grip, and significantly improves the ability to react. ----(2) The quality of the materials is not good,the button number 4 stopped working, and then the scroll-weel broke apart. I never drop this mouse, always was in my desk. my previous mouse lasted 4 years and replace it by this because the extra buttons.
Summary: I received the razor hex at my workplace and was testing it out on my macbook pro. Ergonomics and function seemed fine, but I didn't get a chance to game with it. After about an hour of use OSX complained that the mouse was drawing too much power from the USB port and disabled it. I then plugged the mouse into various computers around the office and it is dead as a doornail (doesn't light up, operating systems dont recognize it as an input device).
Summary: UPDATE: Welp. The scroll wheel is now messed up. I scroll up, it scrolls up and down multiple times. As I had quit gaming for a few months when this issue occurred, I first figured... not a problem. I started playing WoW again recently though and realized, well... this sucks. A few of my spells are bound to my mouse wheel. Not a problem you say? Move them, you say? No. That's not the issue. The issue is I've now lost three available buttons on my mouse.
Summary: received the product, plugged it into my PC and the pointer on my screen would not move when i moved the mouse. did some research and on the official RAZER website they said that putting the mouse on a white piece of paper sometimes fixes the problem, well sure enough i put a white piece of paper under the mouse and the pointer starts working. Only problem is that i bout a BLACK gaming mouse pad at the same time i bought this mouse.
Most disappointing computer perchase I've ever made.

Summary: I thought I'd found the perfect mouse. Not a solid wall of buttons, but certainly enough to be handy. I was wrong. Eyeballing its good looks, I made the unfortunate decision to purchase this mouse. Upon plugging it in, I discover that those six extra buttons aren't regular extra mouse buttons. They're remaps to the number keys on your keyboard. This is not what I expected at all. Hoping to find a work around, I head to the Razer website....
Summary: This mouse is a $80+ piece of junk. You cannot move it without pressing the side buttins on acident becuz they are so easy to push in. Completely useless garbage. I returned mine after 10 minutes of use in fc3. Nice packageing though and it looks kewl. Garbage garbage garbage. Buyer Beware! Epic fail Razer. You ediots need to go back to the drawing board and place the buttins in a usable spot on the side and make them hader to press.
WARNING - You cannot install / configure / fully use this mouse without registering!

Summary: In order to even USE the mouse drivers, you are forced to register and log in. If you don't do this, you cannot configure the mouse YOU ALREADY BOUGHT. The hex buttons are over-sensitive, I kept hitting them during firefights, this has gotten me killed a ton in any FPS. I simply wanted to configure/disable the buttons. Having to Register an account *AND* agree to them spying on me is ludicrous for a piece of hardware I already own.
Summary: While I loved this mouse when it worked, I had problems with buttons that stopped working after a few months. Specifically the buttons behind the scrollwheel. It would only work intermittently, and eventually stopped working entirely. Considering I didn't use the buttons all too frequently, it made me call into question the quality of whole product.
Summary: PRO: Feels nice, has a nice weight and good software, but the battery/charge are total bollux. A truly great mouse. CONS: A great mouse, WHEN IT WORKS, which isn't often. If you leave the the mouse off the craddle for 12 hour it not only discharges the battery, it discharges it past the point where it is able to recharge it. I've had mine discharge my battery to ZERO volts, ZERO point ZERO volts.
