Summary: For a gaming mouse, this is about as cheap as you can go without major sacrifices in quality. The macro editor that comes with it is easy to use and fast to learn. I like it and will most likely buy another if this one dies. The left click does squeak after the 10th click in 3 seconds, but it still works just fine. The active DPI control lets me switch from sniping to vehicles to spray and pray all in seconds, while the lights tell me where in the cycle i am.
Summary: Not all mice are created equal of course and a good mouse is a good thing to have. A good mouse should allow you to adjust many of the settings like DPI and re-assigning the buttons. A good mouse should let you customize it and maybe even give you the ability to store profiles in it. The Sharkoon FireGlider is pretty decent gaming mouse, I've got no real complaints about using this mouse for gaming at all.
Summary: I mostly use it for Guild Wars 2 and it has helped simplify my hotkey setup. It isn't as programmable as some off the more expensive gaming mice, but it is a good interim mouse to own. You have to kind of use a claw grip to be able to use all of the buttons and the mouse is, of course, a little cheap feeling. There are times where it doesn't want to turn on, but that is fixed by unplugging and plugging the usb cable, so not that big of a deal.
Summary: Took time to adjust to this mouse as it is a real "palm filler" unlike my previous mouse which was smaller and worked well with a "claw" grip. Build quality is solid and the sliders underneath are very smooth. Replacements are also included with the mouse, ensuring smooth operation for some time.
Summary: Great mouse, have had it for a long time (2+ years) and haven't had any major problems with it Can't really see any flaws in it for its price. Works perfectly as a gaming mouse. Only thing I would change is the design (I don't find it looks that appealing, and also the design means it is prone to dirt, particularly in the groves between buttons and on the mouse wheel and side.
Summary: solid mouse with a hefty enough feel to it that your not trying to 'over control' it. Good for FPS and the extra buttons do come in useful, i play a fair amount of Planetside 2 and being able to customise the mouse buttons, is very handy, especially when you need to use voice comms, as i have mine configured for PTT on one of the side buttons.
A solid, budget gaming mouse with just a few kinks.

Summary: Used this for a couple of weeks, got my hand adjusted in no-time while keeping one of the best sensitivity buttons I've seen in my years. What I didn't like is how both the thumb resting place and the right side of the mouse (along with the laser hole itself) was prone to getting extremely dirty, even with a pristinely clean mouse-matt.
Summary: I bought this mouse back in 2012 for just a temporary gaming mouse before getting something a bit more meaty, and I have to say I am still pleased with this mouse. There is one problem where once in a blue moon it will refuse to move the cursor where I want for a few seconds, and just jumps about, but for £20 I can't really complain. If you're looking for a decent cheap gaming mouse, buy this!
Summary: This mouse is good. The ability to change the DPI is very quick and affective. The weight customisation is useful, but would be better if the weights were more centered. It would be nice to see some button configuration software come with the mouse.
Great starter mouse for the up and coming FPS slayer

Summary: I've had this mouse for at least 6 months and it's still working perfectly. Some others complained that their's had broken, but mine is doing great and I move it from work to home almost every day. The DPI settings are as responsive as any human would need them to be; I don't even use mine to its full sensitivity, but that's more due to the fact that I'm an appallingly poor FPS player.
