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: Alright, so I ordered this mouse about 6 months ago, and the only reason that I haven't posted a review of it yet is because I just came off two Roccat products - two Roccat Kones, to be precise. Now, the Roccat Kone is pound for pound my favorite gaming mouse of all time - there is a reason I owned two of them, and that is just that there isn't anything better that I've tried yet.
Summary: Cool little mouse with some very neat features. I got big hands and long fingers so this gaming mouse is most certainly small to me. I use a claw grip and that makes use of the SHIFT button and its abilities diffcult and rather useless. I do have kids that use this system so the mouse is great for them size wise but they don't use any of the extras so that makes this mouse a bit of a bust for my household. I did buy the Kova[+] as a gaming mouse and it works well.
Summary: I bought this mouse last week and is the first gaming mouse I have ever bought. I mainly play FPS games and wanted a mouse with more buttons because I found it annoying having to cycle through weapons using the wheel or number keys. It has two extra buttons on each side and I find 3 out of the 4 very awkward to press when trying to be accurate. The one button I don't find awkward is a "shift" button, which is used to press with another key.
Summary: Yes, the lights are gimmicky but it's a beautiful claw-grip mouse that fits my hand very well (female). You don't have to have your fingers reach the very end of the mouse like you do with the Razer Naga--for the first year or so. The left button is so worn that it's double or triple clicking now, and trying to drag and drop items, or even to highlight text, is getting impossible.
Summary: First if you are thinking of getting this mouse, get this one instead: http://www.amazon.com/Razer-Abyssus-Optical-Gaming-Mouse/dp/B002XLR0JI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1392488918&sr=8-2&keywords=razer+abyssus The Roccat mouse is pretty good and felt great! But it is seriously prone to static electricity. I'll touch it and it will screw itself up and i have to do a hard reset on my computer.
Summary: Short and simple - The Kova + is average at best. I have medium sized hands and find the mouse too small. It's put together nicely and has decent lighting effects, though it still feels light and sort of cheap in my opinion. The most critical fail is the fact you cannot remap the left and right click. Big mistake!
Summary: The mouse has a nice weight, but its shape is not so perfect, the buttons are very sensitive so you end up clicking them without knowing just with the weight of yout fingers. But the material is good. Anyway, almos a perfect mouse.
Pros: Nice look with the customizable leds, nice feel to it.
Cons: Accuracy is garbage. On horizontal and vertical lines it was decent but on diagonals it was extremely unaccurate. Mouse wheel click takes an insane amount of force. this is a HUGE nono for me. I use mousewheel click all the time.
