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.
Summary: got this as was using a cheapo rat for playing arma2, it has made my gaming experience alot more enjoyable, i have only used the mouse up to 1200 dpi and for what i use it for this is more than enough, i have a 50" monitor and can easily get from one side to the other with an inch movement of the mouse, the extra buttons on the mouse are great though in a bit of an unusual place i would have moved them down and put the grip above them as this would be more suitable for...
Summary: The fireglider is an great budget gaming mouse, im talking about it being better than some mouses that cost 40£ or more. I wasn't sure first because the price, i thought it would be another "cheap" mouse but once the package arrived, i was surprised. The building quality is great, doesn't feel cheap at all, the performance too, the dpi change on the go and the extra buttons are perfect not only for gaming but for any program that you use often.
Summary: I quite like this mouse so far. My old gaming mouse (Trust GXT 32s) broke after 8 months of use, warranty wouldn't replace it so i searched around and found this nice little mouse. It comes in a black box, with a black pouch with the CD (Half the size of a usual CD, if it doesnt fit your pc, download the drivers from the sharkoon website), and the mouse itself. No fiddly waste of paper manuals. The mouse itself feels and smells like rubber.
Good mouse for its price (review after 1 month and 2 weeks of use) (lasted 2 years and 4 months)

Summary: tl;dr: Good mouse, has a little manufacturing kink, big range of DPI settings, weights are optional, and if you wish to use on Linux, maintain access to Windows for config purposes. Also, after nearly two years of use (it still works!) the rubbery coating on the large back surface has started to peel off and disintegrate. Mouse lasted 2 years and 4 months before giving erroneous clicks, bought a new one of the same model.
