Summary: I do a lot of 3d modeling and gaming, so I do use the mouse wheel heavily, so that could be why it broke. However, being unable to open the mouse nor clean the gunk out of it was an extreme downside. About an hour ago, after some time of acting up, my mouse began freezing and disconnecting (not physically), then I unplugged it and felt the USB end of the cord was extremely hot (burnt my finger a little bit), and the cord's end that goes into the mouse burnt my hand as...
Pros: Great DPI control, very nice and raw input Lasted 2 years before giving out Nice illumination features, high amounts of customization 7 buttons (not including EASY-SHIFT features)
Cons: Mouse wheel axle broke about 3 months in Impossible to open mouse without destroying protective padding Gunk is extremely hard to clean because of this Mouse wheel became very difficult to scroll without using a special technique after the axle broke Driver sometimes interfering with windows recognition of the mouse when plugged in
Summary: I got this on sale, so it was an absolute steal for its actual value, but even not on sale, I'd still buy it, and recommend it, knowing what I do now.
Pros: - The lights are pretty - Good movement, accurate, very fluid - Love the amount of customizability, the "Shift" feature is grand and really allows for versatility - Subtle-looking mouse, good for left-handers who share with righties
Cons: - The lights can be a tad annoying at night. Just turn them off or switch to red at night, maybe dark blue. Also the orange is basically just a green. - A bit of a lie in the advertising, as you can't really customize the "Shift" button on the mouse (But really, why would you want to?) - The scroll wheel is nice and gives good tactile and auditory feedback, but it's unusually hard to depress compared to a normal mouse. It takes some getting used to, but it's still rat...
Summary: Great product, Amazon wrapped up the package really good, no scratches and fully functional in packaging. The buttons work great and the color change is solid colors but still pretty cool! Only concern is that since I have slightly oily-ish hands it tends to show on the top of the mouse. It does dry out but it still kinda looks gross. Other than that the product is great!
Summary: Replaced my Death Adder after the second one in a year wore out. Love this mouse. It's easy to set up, lots of options, and less expensive than the Death Adder. It took me a bit to get used to the feel of the log on the (right handed) right mouse button.
Pros: Very comfortable with tons of customisation. As someone who never quite accepted macro keys on keyboards or mouses, the easyshift feature became a godsend, as it felt natural and was very easy to adapt. Fairly decent crowdsourced linux tools for customisation needs.
Cons: Tad expensive, and probably not for someone on a budget. The geometry was a bit rough at first, but I got used to it fairly quickly, and the mouse feels very comfortable now.
